of Domstadtl ''' during the Seven Years' War was the first big military success of Ernst Gideon von Laudon (Ernst Gideon Freiherr von Laudon), which made Prussian King Frederick the Great finish the siege of Olmuetz and leave Moravia? ...that during the 1936 '''Siege of the Alcázar''', around 1000 Spanish Nationalists (Spanish State) in Toledo (Toledo, Spain) held a medieval castle for two months despite aerial and artillery bombardments and a sustained assault by 8000 Republican (Second Spanish Republic) troops? This document dates to the late 8th-early 9th century and was followed by a small thanksgiving prayer in Latin: ''gratias tibi agimus omnip(oten)s sempiterne d(eu)s''. These lines were written on codex LXXXIX (89) of the ''Biblioteca Capitolare di Verona''. The parchment, discovered by Schiapparelli in 1924 is a Mozarabic (Mozarabic language) oration by the Spanish (Spain) Christian (Christianity) Church, i.e. a document in a Romance language first written in Spain in an area influenced by the Moorish culture, probably around Toledo (Toledo, Spain). It was then brought to Cagliari and then Pisa before reaching the Chapter (Chapter (religion)) of Verona. He was born at Toledo, Spain. His father, Alvaro Ortiz de Cisneros, was the son of Pedro Gonzales Cedillo and grandson of Hernando Ortiz de Cisneros, whom Ferdinand IV (Ferdinand IV of Castile) had honoured with the governorship of Toledo and important missions. The next year, 711, Musa directed Tariq to invade Hispania for Islam. Disembarking from Ceuta aboard ships provided by Julian, Tariq plunged into the Iberian Peninsula, defeated Roderic, and went on to besiege the Visigothic capital of Toledo (Toledo, Spain). He and his allies also took Córdoba (Córdoba, Spain), Ecija, Granada, Málaga, Seville, and other cities. By this process, Tariq was conquering Iberia for Islam rather than taking sides in a Visigothic civil war. And in so doing he established beyond all doubt that Ceuta, the last Christian stronghold in North Africa, was now part of the Arab empire. By this means the Umayyad conquest of Hispania brought to a close the total Islamic conquest of North Africa. In 1557 Philip appointed him to the archbishopric (archbishop) of Toledo (Toledo, Spain); he accepted with reluctance, and was consecrated at Brussels on 27 February 1558. He was at the deathbed of Charles V (on 21 September) and gave him extreme unction; then raised a curious controversy as to whether Charles, in his last moments, had been influenced by Lutheranism. ) is a stone fortification located in the highest part of Toledo, Spain.
