t. Curious Moroccan.

Carthage was a fascinating counter-pole of Rome

After destruction of this city Maghreb became a periphery

Pretty sure that the moorish empire were as strong and influent as Carthage, if not more.
>>
My favorite dynasty, the Almohads.
>>
>>277302
I'm extremely dubious they controlled anything that far south.
>>
>>277320
The Almoravid are a saharian dynasty and they attacked Ghana, Niger, Senegal, Mali etc.

They're one of the main reason west africa is muslim IIRC.

Always loved reading about Berbers and Moors. Was pretty fascinating, they remind me of the Arabic/North African version of the Normans, going into for off regions and making them their own.

>>277348
Normans and Maghrebians were very good ennemies, the Normands fought them in Sicily and in North africa.

They even founded a kingdom in Africa that lasted few years!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Tondibi

Moroccans conquered the songhai empire and took important cities like Timbuktu and Gao but eventually had to leave because controlling territory over the sahara was a logistical nightmare

You're in the wrong timelaps buddy, the Almoravid conquest of central/west Africa is 500 years before this events.

A lot of things changed between this periods.
>>
I keep forgetting who was more extreme, Almoravids or Almohads
>>
>>277271
Ruined by Islam

They started that far south.

Both were integrist religious groups. When the almoravids grew decadent, the new extremists Almohads replaced them by force.
