Muladíes (sg.: muladí) were an ethnic group of indigenous Iberian Muslims that lived in the Iberian Peninsula in the Middle Ages. The Spanish word muladí is derived from Arabic muwallad (pl: muwalladun or muwalladeen). The basic meaning of muwallad is a person of mixed ancestry, especially a descendant of an Arab and a non-Arab parent, who grew up among Arabs and was educated within the Arab-Islamic culture.
