I also need to understand what is the meaning of "grey widow-maker" in this poem?
...And Olaf of Norway
And Erik of Gotland
And Thorwald the Mighty,
Whose grandsire was Wotan,
Stand fast on the poop deck
With golden hair streaming,
With spear brightly glinting,
With eye fierce and blazing,
Sail out on the swan's bath --
The grey widow-maker --
For England or Iceland,
Byzantium, Vinland,
Far land or ancient
And ripe for the plunder,
The burning of roof-trees,
The seizing of women,
The tooting of treasure,
The flowing of red blood,
And wine for the victors.

In the end of chapter #19 "After this the Arabs and Moors were gradually pushed back toward Africa in a series
of bloody wars with their neighbors to the north. Not until 1492 was the reconquest of the
peninsula finally completed. In that year the unbaptized Jews were expelled en masse from
the country they had betrayed eight centuries earlier, and the remaining pockets of Moors
followed them ten years later. The Inquisition, which had been established in 1478, dealt to a
limited extent with the baptized Jews."
What the autor means by "remaining pockets of Moors
followed them ten years later"? Expulsion of the Moriscos? But it started in 1609.

In 1501 Castilian authorities delivered an ultimatum to Granada's Muslims: they could either convert to Christianity or be expelled.
