During the Middle Ages, kings and popes sometimes cooperated. Other times, they competed for power. One instance of cooperation took place when Europeans answered a pope's call and sent knights to fight against Muslim rule in the Holy Land. These wars had significant effects on Europe and Palestine.
Eventually, Muslims created an advanced civilization in Spain. Christians later reclaimed Spain and built Christian kingdoms.
The Middle Ages also witnessed the Norman Conquest, which transformed England. Rights guaranteed in the Magna Carta limited the power of kings.
