^Will the Mexihca become big players soon? Granted it's been a while since I've read this but I don't think they've been mentioned before now.
Well, at least for now who converted were just the leaders, i don't think that it prevents the mixtecs from having a non-muslim plurality at all, probably now they have a non-muslim majority because of the recent conversion, don't lose hope so easily!At the same time though its a shame about the mixtecs, i was gunning for a non muslim plurality for a while at least.
Yep, a great ride indeed, but for real i think they still have quite a lot going for them, since the region still needs to bounce back from disease stuff, so the Mexica can maintain their position for a bit longer i think. Chichimeca cavalrymen is always a promising thing!Wait, is the Mexihca kingdom to the west the Mexica/Aztecs of OTL? If so, that is one great detour they have made! Whatever the case, it seems like their hegemony is now being short-circuited by the number of nominally-Islamized Mesoamerican states surrounding them. I shudder to think what'll happen once the Guachilchil gets used to Old World horses...
I'm the only one don't care that much the natives but more the muslims preaching and native (mis)understanding of the message? still nice the new Walis, wonder what will come nextWell, at least for now who converted were just the leaders, i don't think that it prevents the mixtecs from having a non-muslim plurality at all, probably now they have a non-muslim majority because of the recent conversion, don't lose hope so easily!

Nice. How have new world crops and crops from Africa influenced Andalusian cuisine?They did. They've had a lot of time to get their hands on things like corn and tomatoes. The biggest impact of New World crops has actually been in Senegambia, largely because of cassava, maize and peanuts.
I'm not sure whether cultures in the Americas had any philosophical-cultural backing for not fully covering yourself, but in India, Muslim culture ended up permitting very thin translucent hybrid silk and cotton cloth for men and women that both was seen to accomodate Islamicate ideas about modesty and Indic ideas about the king allowing his body to be seen as a sign of sovereignty and semi divinity. Also thinner cloth is just more practical in humid environments.
I actually have a post coming on some of this soon, but the Otomi Alliance in particular is experiencing a trend of urban elite Arabization of dress code, language and mannerisms. Women are wearing hijab more, Arabic is becoming the language of state and there's a trend towards embracing a more orthodox religious manner. That's mainly true in the major cities. That said, in the countryside people tend to retain their indigenous styles of dress and worship, and even though an Ajami script exists for the Otomi language, Otomi is still the spoken language of most commoners.
Guessing TTL's "Alaska" has a different etymology than OTL. North America.
So even in conquered areas elements of pre-colombian civilizations are much more visible. Nice.a bustling centre in which Mayan architecture had been supplemented and partially replaced by Andalusian building styles.
And Brazil is just an island(newfoundland of otl),yeah for the welsh was an island but yeah things that changes with the butterflies.Yeah, "Alaska" as a name for North America is weird, considering its etymology unless this is meant to show a domination of Russian or Aleutian mapmakers?
I'm not and i forgot that detail.....thanks for remind itWhile I'm on the "keep Santiago/Navarre as separate nations" camp on Christian Iberia,
Apples and pineapples. Not apples and oranges, because these names have very different etymologies and origins. Seriously. Look up the etymology for Alaska and see why it's weird to see it here. Unless it can be said the name is due to the great power and influence of China that just happened to use a name from OTL Alaska for its maps (if so, it'd indicate a concerted Chinese effort to colonize the New World in this TL's future), it's stretching suspension of disbelief nearly to the breaking point.And Brazil is just an island(newfoundland of otl),yeah for the welsh was an island but yeah things that changes with the butterflies.
