Most Catholic King


A title of the Kings of Spain. The title was given to Ferdinand of Aragon and Isabella of Castile by Pope Alexander VI. In their reign Spain had become a united kingdom and a bulwark against Moorish power, since they had driven out the last of the Moors. They had done much to spread the Faith in the new lands discovered by Columbus and the other adventurous explorers of Spain.
