Portuguese possessions in Morocco (1415-1769).

Moroccan–Portuguese conflicts refer to a series of battles between Morocco and Portugal throughout history. The first battle was in Ceuta, marking the start of the Portuguese Empire. The major battle was at Ksar-el-Kebir, initiating the 1580 Portuguese succession crisis. This resulted in a dynastic union between the Kingdom of Portugal and the Kingdom of Spain. The struggle only ended when Portugal gave up Mazagão, in 1769.
