Basques started their own Reconquest expelling all latin speaking non Iron Age Iberian populations?

They're welcome to try
It would be a hell of a job. While the Iberians spearheaded the reconquista against the Moors they still had the wider support of Europe, something the Basques would lack. Really if the Basques wanted indo-europeans out they had centuries to do it before the Romans arrived.
Why does Navarra always get lumped in with the biscayans? Basque is completely dead there
North Navarra is as basque as the most. But is true that suthern than Pamplona Euskara is not speaked
Basques as an ethnic people are not an island in Spain. Old basque territory comprised like 3x times today´s areas meaning that the people that live there speak castellano but ARE ethnically basques (despite having Spanish surnames).
Cantabrians are also ethnically similar to basques (at least many of them in rural areas). The same people but their language/culture was erased by the Romans during the Cantabrian Wars.
Also Basques and Navarros played an important role in the Reconquista and Repopulations. There are millions of today´s Spaniards that live 600 km away from the Basque region that have basque surnames. I have 1 basque surname and we don´t have basque ancestry for the last 500 years.
Also they have fallen for the globohomo much more intensely than the rest of Spain. In just 10 years they are now full of inmigrants from Africa, muslims, southamericans. They killed 1000 Spaniards (terrorist) to maintain their culture for 40 years (even children) yet they now have allowed hundred of thousands africans to live there.
here we go again
"Racially" basques with castellano surnames.
These people are from the southern region from the basque region: La Rioja. They are racially basques (they would pass there) with castellano surnames.
There are not enough basques left to even reconquer there own lands (it is basically a penal colony of morocco)
>non Iron Age Iberian populations?
Are you retarded? all iberians are iron age iberian populations. Where are your Iron Age Samples from Galicia, Asturias, Castilla Leon, Portugal, Extremadura etc? 98% of the Iron Age samples we have are from peri-basque region and northeast
>Basques started their own Rec-AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK
>NOOOOOOOOO p-p-please mr. Alba let me keep my kingdom and my language please mr. Alba please, n-no, no NOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAACCCCCCCCKKKKK
Basques are the same combo of the rest of the Iberians and even all euros: WHG, EEF and Steppe.
Basques are more Whg tho and less Steppe
I believe Basques were not affected by the Celtic Wave of the Iron Age, even more Steppe-rich than the previous Bronze Age ymanya/corded ware related one
If they weren’t part of Spain, they wouldn’t have gotten priority in industry and manufacturing. The only reason Basque Country is rich is because it became a main Spanish industrial hub.
Basque and Scatalonians cry about how they were "oppressed" during the Franco era despite the Francoist government developing and rebuilding those areas and benefited the most from it when you compared those regions to southern Spain.
Victimhood is the new power complex in the west
Stupid question because Basques have always been part of the Spanish elite. It's not the same case as traditionally oppressed populations like Irishmen in Britain or Samis in Sweden. Among Spanish generals, aristocrats, admirals, businessmen, archbishops etc there were always lots of Basques.
