An overseas territory of the United Kingdom at the southern end of Iberia.
Origin of Gibraltar
From the Arabic جبل طارق (Jabal Ţāriq), meaning Mountain of Tariq, who led the Umayyad conquest of Hispania, starting in 711. Replaced earlier Latin Mons Calpe (“Mount Calpe”) for the land, and Ancient Greek Ηράκλειες Στήλε (Ērakleies Stēle, “Pillars of Hercules”) (Latin Columnae Herculis) for the strait.
