I just started writing my first alternate history about the Muslim conquest of Spain. We know in the original timeline (OTL) that the Spanish have successfully overthrown their Muslim rulers by 1492 and the rest his history. What if the Muslims remained and were never driven from the peninsula? Obviously, Spain never existed and so its conquests in the 15th century and in this case, the Muslim rulers of Spain may have discovered America and the world as we know it would be dominated by the Muslim world.
