A discussion of the influence of black Africans on Europe and on Europeans is complicated by the absence of a universal definition of black. In general, the designation black in Europe, unlike in the United States, has been reserved for those of dark color, not the broader definition based on known black African ancestry.

      Black nobility in Europe? According to black Dutch researcher Egmond Codfried and author of the book "Belle van Zuylen's forgotten grandmother" there was black nobility in Europe, but there history and images were later carefully tucked away. His claims are controversial, and of course not accepted by European historians and the man in the street. One of the most interesting Africans in 16th century Europe and a Spanish-African contemporary of Alessandro de’ Medici and St. Benedict the Moor was the scholar and poet Juan Latino ().Author: Runoko Rashidi.
