The Crusades were a series of military expeditions promoted by the papacy during the Middle Ages, initially aimed at the Holy Land, but later also with various other goals. The main Crusades spanned two centuries (1096-1300 CE). Preceded by events such as the start of the Reconquista of the Iberian Peninsula.

A less politically correct view is that race mixing by the crusaders with local populations contributed to the eventual failure.[1]
