The Animated History of Spain


Ahh, Spain, A land marred by the scars of its past A land almost synonymous with empire, having been under the yoke of so many foreign rulers that even they began to lose count. A land who very empire would stand the test of time, and dramatically changed the course of Mesoamerican history, and yet somehow managed to avoid two world wars. All this in more in… [Intro Music] So, you probably heard that Spain was part of the Roman Empire, but before they arrived Note:{I will work on this again once i got enough time to do so, but for now this is all i can do.}

  • If anyone wants to see me at VidCon Australia check out this video: https://youtu.be/Bnxc-ApC208

  • Swift victory over hannibl…..he camped out inside Italy for years and years destroying Roman army after Roman army eventually he ran out of supplies so tell me exactly what was so swift about this war…

  • Dude you have absolutely no facts to what your saying its all misleading or straight up lies so u could put a vid up you should be ashamed not watching anymore of your vids

  • Soy español y solo digo
    #ARIBA ESPAÑA , TODO POR LA PATRIA ,like si eres español

  • People from Mali also discovered America almost 200 years before Columbus!

  • Black legend….

  • Napoleon did not defeat the spanish army. He just convinced his “ally” Fernando VII of Spain and his father Carlos IV to both abdicate in each other. As they didn’t know the other’s abdication, the spanish throne fell into Napoleon’s hands, who gave it to his brother Jose I (Pepe Botella). The fact that Fernando VII’s son was taken prisoner by the french started a rebellion against French rule

  • No tienes ni idea.

  • La inquisición no empezó en España ni fue la más sangrienta, en el resto de europa Francia Holanda Alemania hubo más víctimas.

  • ARRIBA ESPAÑA OSTIA

  • 400 years of Spanish Empire is not a short time precisely, without taking into account Aragon s previous Mediterranean possessions. How many years lasted Napoleon s one or British one? From 1492 to 1800 Spanish Empire kept growing, and only in 1898 was finished.

  • If you pretend to create an impartial Historical video, then old fake news against Spain, so called Black Legend, should not be considered. Only an ignorant believes Inquisition is a Spanish invention… The whole of Europe had their national Inquisition, catholic or Protestant, and heretics or witches were killed everywhere in Europe, particularly in UK, where thousands of Irish and English Catholics were massacred

  • Excelente video. Me encantó ver a un estadounidense hablar objetivamente y sin ninguna inclinación sobre la Historia de España.
    Sería genial si hablaras sobre la Historia de México, Argentina, Colombia o de otro país hispanohablante.
    (Excellent video. I loved hearing an American talking about the History of Spain objectively and without political ideologies. It would be great if you talk about Mexico, Colombia, Argentina and about Hispanic speakers countries)

  • Good job bro

  • Was the Byzantine Empire ever that big?

  • For the record, I'd like to point out that Spanish power did not decline with the defeat of the 1588 Armada, that is sheer propaganda. For 2 more centuries Spain was still a force to be reckoned with, although no longer the undisputed kingpin of the Med/Atlantic. It was Napoleon's invasion of 1808 and the Peninsular War that proved to be the straw that broke the camel's back.

  • españa mçno tiene problemas de identidad todas las regiones españolas respetan la constetucion
    puta ingñlaterra

    n

  • los ingleses sois escoria nunca tendreis nuestro imperio

  • puta la reina isabel

  • Only American Knee Grows believe they were Moorish Kangs and Egyptians 😂

  • Not a single mention of the Armada? Or the seven years war?

  • Can you do Hungary next ?

  • It's a damn shame the world wars destroyed so much history..

  • Do an animated history of Mexico.

  • Hahahaha mf Napoleon said he wanted to conquer Portugal , but he finally decided to conquer Spain , hijo puta haha que rata

  • black legend intensifies

  • 5:06 what does that mean?

  • Our soldiers, body guards, police and priest is on the way. Dont be shy dont be sad

  • Historia de españa:
    Un imperio que no se merecia las riquezas que tenia, ladrones, extorsionadores y que hasta nuestros dias no han aportado nada al mundo

  • My country I was born in Spain to military parents

  • 5:05 less than 3000 died because of the inquisition. More people died in America in a single day because of religious reasons.
    And what do you mean "even by European standards"? When majority Christian Syria rebelled against the caliphate (after the landing of a small roman force) they destroyed entire towns.
    The only thing even comparable historically is the crusades

  • madre mia… Esta todo mal.

    La reconquista española: Después de la batalla de Tours, se crea la Marca Hispánica. (pequeños condados vasallos del rey franco) Y en Covadonga, pelayo gana a los musulmanes dando origen al reconquista. Navarra conquista Huesca y da paso al reino navarro-aragonés. Que años mas tarde se separaría tras la muerte de Alfonso I. (Cataluña no existía. Y lo que se conoce como cataluña es conocido como Condado de barcelona, parte de una de estas marcas hispánicas).

    El reino de Aragón logra grandes conquistas (llega hasta las puertas de granada muchos años antes que los reyes católicos). Conquista Valencia, mallorca, Cerdeña, Sicilia, Atenas, Neopatria, y tiene la Hegemonía en el mediterráneo.

    Por otro lado, entre Castilla y Aragón se adelantan varios cientos de años a los reyes católicos y se casan Alfonso I de Aragón y Urraca de Castilla. Que años mas tarde termina en tragedia pidiendo la nulidad matrimonial.

    Descubrimiento de América:

    Colon antes de ir a los reyes católicos fué a el Rey de Portugal. Y este le engaño negándole el dinero y mandando primero uno de sus barcos (que no llegaron muy lejos, pero descubrieron un paso por el sur para circunvalar África). Mientras tras la conquista de Granada, Los reyes católicos pusieron 3 barcos a disposición de colon para su viaje. Y descubrió América.

    No fue hasta Carlos I (nieto de los reyes catolicos) y su hijo Felipe II que se descubriria Mexico, y otras regiones del continente americano estableciéndose los tres virreinatos en el nuevo mundo.

    El mestizaje Musulmán de España es muy largo. Estuvieron en la península 800 años. Y después de la conquista de Al-Andalus, muchos de los territorios fueron poblados con musulmanes. (esto venía ocurriendo desde Alfonso I de Aragón) Y muchos de ellos se reconvirtieron al cristianismo (dando nacimiento al arte Mudejar) que solo se da en España.

    La hegemonía del imperio español duró de 1450 a 1898 (desastre del 98) No obstante empezó a perder poder al final de la guerra de sucesión (1713) (cuando la dinastía Borbonica consiguió la victoria y el imperio europeo se separó definitivamente, dejando Sicilia, cerdeña, hungría, Austria, Napoles y el sacro imperio romano germánico en manos del verdadero heredero a la corona "el Archiduque Carlos, de la casa de Habsburgo). Subiendo Felipe V al trono y firmando la paz con inglaterra (que apoyaba a carlos por miedo a una unión hispano-Francesa) dándole Gibraltar y mallorca entre otras tierras que fueron "reconquistadas" de manos inglesas.

    lo de las guerras napoleonicas tiene delito. Porque fue el propio fernando VIII el que se declaró Hijo Adoptivo de Napoleón (ese era el nivel del monarca español de la época) dejando el trono de españa a José Bonaparte (hermano de Napoleon) curtiendo la alianza del estado español y el imperio francés. Una España Dividida en plena guerra de independencia (cuya primera derrota de napoleon se obtuvo en la batalla de Bailen, España) Y unos meses mas tarde, desencadenó la derrota de Trafalgar en manos inglesas. (un pais dividido en dos por un monarca verdaderamente traidor).

    La inquisición española fué menos sangrienta que la alemana, la francesa o la inglesa. (hay mas quemas de brujas en estos paises en un año que en toda la historia de la inquisición española). La leyenda negra española, habla muy mal de la inquisición. Pero es parte de la ignorancia que hay sobre España. 25.000 brujas ejecutadas en Alemania frente a las 200 en toda la historia de la inquisición española. (pero siempre se habla mal de la española).

    Un poquito de rigor historico, no vendria mal.. 🙂

  • 606/5000
    That the Spanish Inquisition was bloody? what ignorance, the Inquisition brought to Spain and its domains a justice that in Protestant Europe never existed, in the 356 years that the Inquisition lasted in Spain, there were barely 3,000 death sentences of which 1,376 were fulfilled, and half in effigy . The Indians in America were never enslaved, they were subjects of the king with the same rights as the Spaniards of Spain, because Spain never had colonies but provinces.
    Stop letting go of so many lies about Spain and study a bit of History before saying so much stupidity.

  • Great little vids

  • Why not speak of Blas de lezo and how three ships defeated the British fleet or how the Spanish massacred the English in the Canary Islands?

  • The French entered Spain peacefully with the consent of the king to conquer Portugal that was allied with the English, overthrowing the reign and putting his brother Joseph in office. A few years later they were expelled.

  • No moors this video ass

  • What happened to your voice in this one?

  • No mention of the Spanish Armada?

  • The spanish opening their way for the french to take us portuguese 😤 and they say we live obsessed by a spanish invasion.

  • Do america this time

  • The French revolution was 10X more bloody that the whole of the Spanish Inquisition.

  • The Spanish civil war is complex but many of the European balance of power wars that has shaped Europe to this day arent even mentioned. Spains gets no respect.

  • ¿Sangriento? Eres otro ignorante más que se ha creido la "historia" escrita por los ingleses y que aún existe en todos los "libros de historia" impresos con dinero inglés en todo el mundo. Patético.
    Notoriously bloody? You are another ignorant who has believed the "history" written by the English and that still exists in all the "history books" printed with English money all over the world. Pathetic.

  • "Spanish are ungovernable" yes, yes we are 😂🔥🇪🇸 viva España

  • Excellent video. Thank you amigo :)😀😂😀

  • Sooo… Nothing on the 80 years war with the Netherlands 1568-1648?

  • Isabel la católica accedió a darle apoyo económico a Colón no el rey de Aragón también hubo inquisiciones en otros países y la española fue la menos violenta

  • This video has a lot of big mistakes. You guys should probably correct it

  • What continent doesn't have a bloody history perhaps Antarctica

  • So where's Philippines and Rizal?

  • What the hell is that map at 7:39?? It is definitely not the European Union in 1986. East Germany "joined" when it became part of West Germany in 1990. Finland (not colored on your map!), Sweden and Austria joined in 1995. Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary and Slovenia joined in 2004, Romania and Bulgaria in 2007 and Croatia in 2013. Your crappy map supposedly from 1986 has all of these latest additions, but then curiously not Finland. Crappy maps take away all vestiges of credibility.

  • Viva Espana 💃🇪🇸 from your son a Puerto Rican 🐸🇵🇷

  • 4:31 Why the hell does that matter

  • 4:51 my ancestors were part of the jews that were expelled from Spain and thanks to a new law, I am in the process of getting my Spanish citizenship (dual citizenship with my home country Mexico). I'm very glad Spain is trying to bring justice to their past mistakes 🙂

  • Spanish ppl look white bcuz sum of em r white

  • Your intro thing is too long. And they're pointless to begin with, it's an old TV thing, that most YouTubers have stopped doing now as it's a waste of time for us viewers and a self indulgence on your part and they've become to be seen as amateurish as a result.
    BUUUT I don't wanna sound like I'm just some miserable hater, GREAT video after said intro 🙂

  • Man I love these history videos I'm a history junky I love how u make it more interesting in animation great way to learn for all ages much love for this channel.

  • loco españa… greetings from Maharlika….wish you all to be burnt in hell in the last day…

  • Es un vídeo propagandístico o algo así? Porque está lleno de errores deja a España como si fuera un países que siempre pierde si tengo que hablar de todos los errores me tiro un día entero. Estos son los errores que yo considero que son inaceptables:La Inquisición Española más mentira que nada en todo el imperio en 400 años ni 500, no habla del imperio Español la época gloriosa(PRIMER IMPERIO DE ULTRAMAR ) en el sigloXVI hasta elXIX (los nativos murieron de las enfermedades que no se equivoque que España no torturó como se dice y ni compararlo con como actuaron otras potencia,por decir Inglaterra no dejo nativos en sus trece colonias),colon fue en representación de Castilla, y ofensa para todo español ;cito"España ha sido invadida tantas veces que no saben ni bajo cuántos imperios han estado" te lo cuento 1 Roma 2suevos vandalos etc 3 califato 4 Napoleón (5 si quieres contar Gibraltar y 6 si cuentas Cartago) vamos casi igual q Inglaterra q fuer invadido por los vikingos ,normados,romanos,sajones y alguno más para este video en el guión ponía -decir que España es lo peor , las expulsiones de judíos y árabes fueron muy tardía sino las más tardías

  • spain is the only empire i know that actually had inflation from too much precious metals, a abnormal thing, since precious metals are commodities and usually balances itself by production of more products to trade inside and outside spain, thats how reserve currency starts.
