I came to this as a open mind, specially someone who likes history like me, and actually is "Iberian" and alot of this is revoled around Iberian/Spanish/Portuguese history and...
I cringed so hard. Just in the first minutes, when Isabella goes inside Granada pointing the sword to the moors. That is not how it went! And she didnt battle, she went to battle, but she didnt actually fight, yet this presents her on front of battle. Not to mention her looks are completely wrong, she was blonde! Not a Brunette that looks like a american "latina". Not to mention she entered in the conquered city with Ferdinand. And whats with the african/black woman around? Okay, lets pretend that Spain had one at this time (yet no mention on it). Its actually almost impossible, because Spain had no real contact with sub saharan Africa at this period, Portugal did after the Treaty of Tordesillas. So the chances to see a african in there is very reduced. And much more.
Its a fun show for someone who doesnt have nothing to do, with a plot used hundreds of times in media and this is not the best show presenting this plot. And for history and facts, its horrible. Sad thing is, alot of people get their history by shows like this.
