2 January 1492 – King Boabdil surrenders Granada to Ferdinand and Isabella

On 2nd January 1492, King Boabdil (or Abu `Abdallah Muhammad XII), Sultan of Granada, surrendered Granada, Spain, to the forces of King Ferdinand II of Aragon and Queen Isabella I of Castile following months of siege.

Granada had been the last outpost of Al-Andalus, the parts of the Iberian peninsula governed by the Moors, but now it had been conquered by the Catholic monarchs as the final act of the "Reconquista", which had been a campaign running since the 1200s to kick the Moors out of Spain.

Here's a Claire Chats video I did on my visit to the Alhambra, the former Moorish palace where Ferdinand and Isabella flew their royal banners after they captured Granada.
