(ALL THE REAL WORLD HISTORY IS COMING OUT.) Etymology of the words “Swarthy” and “Muurish”: Nordic: Svarti meaning Black
Germanic: Schwartz meaning Black
English: Swarthy meaning Black
So Schwartzman, Schwarzenneger, or Swarthy complected man, all talking about the same man:
The Muur. The Muir, the Moors, il Moros, the Maurs.
In Greek, Maur means black. In latin and all its derivative languages, Moro means Blackman. In English Muurish refers to a black man’s national origin.
African continent is where Mauritania lies, and Co-Moros and Moro-cco, and Mara-kesh. The Muurish country.
The Muur was the only European who ever had swarty complexion.
You know the Muur already. This man here:

Next stop: Seville! We were absolutely captivated by the duality of the city’s history and architecture. The Royal Alcázar is a hallmark of the Mudéjar style, a blend of Christian and Moorish sensibilities. It was originally built by the Moors, but later renovated and expanded by Spanish rulers. Phrases praising Allah appear alongside royal crests in the intricate tile and stucco. The aesthetic palace also served as the filming location for the Water Gardens in Game of Thrones’ Dorne. (We had altogether too much fun trying to spot the backdrops for iconic scenes.) The Seville Cathedral sits on the site of a mosque, making it a unique construction as far as churches go. The bell tower is a former minaret and the footprint is not as rectangular as a traditional Cathedral, since it had to completely cover the existing square building. It was built as a show of superiority, and it was the largest in the world at the time. (Today it’s the largest Gothic cathedral and the third largest church.)
