Hispanic interest groups are already up in arms about the possibility of another gringo winning control of their favourite broadcaster. The greater likelihood, however, is that Grupo Televisa, Mexico's dominant TV broadcaster, will step in. The reason why Televisa will probably beat Mr Murdoch and other big American media companies to the prize in the end is that it makes a lot of Univision's most popular programming. Under a deal struck years ago, Televisa is committed to supply programming to Univision until in return for a small share of revenues.
Televisa is unhappy with the arrangement, and at the beginning of February it alleged a material breach of their contract by Univision. Some people, indeed, think that Univision's year-old controlling shareholder, Jerrold Perenchio, is selling now partly because he does not want the hassle of dealing with all Televisa's complaints.

In the early eighth century the Visigothic Kingdom fell to the Moors of the Umayyad Islamic Caliphate , who arrived to rule most of the peninsula in the year , leaving only a handful of small Christian realms in the north and lasting up to seven centuries in the Kingdom of Granada ; this led to many wars during a long reconquering period across the Iberian Peninsula, which led to the creation of the Kingdom of Leon , Kingdom of Castile , Kingdom of Aragon and Kingdom of Navarre as the main Christian kingdoms to face the invasion.
Following the Moorish conquest, Europeans began a gradual process of retaking the region known as the Reconquista , which by the late 15th century culminated in the emergence of Spain as a unified country under the Catholic Monarchs.

It is a major developed country and a high income country, with the world's fourteenth largest economy by nominal GDP and sixteenth largest by purchasing power parity.
Down the centuries there have been a number of accounts and hypotheses: The Renaissance scholar Antonio de Nebrija proposed that the word Hispania evolved from the Iberian word Hispalis , meaning "city of the western world". Therefore, i-spn-ya would mean "the land where metals are forged", it may be a derivation of the Phoenician I-Shpania, meaning "island of rabbits", "land of rabbits" or "edge", a reference to Spain's location at the end of the Mediterranean. The word in question means " Hyrax " due to Phoenicians confusing the two animals. Hispania may derive from the poetic use of the term Hesperia , reflecting the Greek perception of Italy as a "western land" or "land of the setting sun" Hesperia.
