"Moors" was a generic term employed by Christian Europeans during the Middle Ages and early modern period to define the ethnically diverse Muslim inhabitants of the western Mediterranean.

History

During King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella's conquest of Spain, the Templars attempted to prolong the conflict with the Moors by holding King Muhammad hostage in Alhambra. Ezio Auditore da Firenze rescued Muhammad, allowing him to surrender and end the struggle.[1]

During the Spanish occupation of Algiers, the amir Selim requested and obtained help from the Ottoman Assassins in protecting the Moors living there.[2]

British Assassin Omar Khaled was often disparagingly called a Moor on the streets of London in the 17th century.[3]
