Muhammad XII of Granada

Abu Abdallah Muhammad XII, known in Europe as Boabdil, was the 22nd and last Nasrid ruler of the Emirate of Granada in Iberia. Muhammad XII was the son of Abu l-Hasan Ali, Sultan of the Emirate of Granada whom he succeeded in 1482, as a result of both court intrigue and unrest amongst the population at large. Muhammad XII soon sought to gain prestige by invading Castile, he was taken prisoner at Lucena in 1483. Muhammad's father was restored as ruler of Granada, to be replaced in 1485 by his uncle Muhammad XIII known as Abdullah ez Zagal. Muhammad obtained his freedom and Christian support to recover his throne in 1487, by consenting to hold Granada as a tributary kingdom under the Catholic monarchs, he further undertook not to intervene in the Siege of Málaga, in which Málaga was taken by the Christians. Following the fall of Málaga and Baza in 1487, Almuñécar, Salobreña and Almería were taken by the Christians the following year. By the beginning of 1491, Granada was the only Muslim-governed city in Iberia.

In 1491, Muhammad XII was summoned by Isabella I of Castile and Ferdinand II of Aragon to surrender the city of Granada, besieged by the Castilians. On 2 January 1492, Granada was surrendered; the royal procession moved from Santa Fe to a place a little more than a mile from Granada, where Ferdinand took up his position by the banks of the Genil. A private letter written by an eyewitness to the Bishop of León only six days after the event recorded the scene: The Moorish sultan, with about eighty or a hundred on horseback and well dressed, went forth to kiss the hand of their Highnesses. According to the final capitulation the key to Granada will pass into Spanish hands without Muhammad XII having to kiss the hands of Los Reyes, as the Spanish royal couple Isabella and Fernando became known; the indomitable mother of Muhammad XII insisted on sparing her son this final humiliation of kissing the hand of Isabella. Christopher Columbus seems to have been present. Legend has it that as Muhammad XII went into exile, he reached a rocky prominence which gave a last view of the city.

Here he reined in his horse and viewed for the last time the Alhambra and the green valley that spread below. The place where this took place is today known as the Suspiro del Moro, "the Moor's sigh". Muhammad mourned his loss, continued his journey to exile accompanied by his mother. Muhammad XII was given an estate in Laujar de Andarax, Las Alpujarras, a mountainous area between the Sierra Nevada and the Mediterranean Sea, but in October 1493 he crossed the Mediterranean to Fes, accompanied by an entourage of 1,130 courtiers and servants. Large numbers of the Muslim population of Granada had fled to North Africa, taking advantage of a clause in the articles of surrender that permitted free passage. Shortly after his surrender, Muhammad Boabdil sent a long letter to the Marinid rulers of Morocco asking for refuge; the letter begins with a long poem praising the Marinids, followed by a prose passage where he laments his defeat and asks forgiveness for past wrongdoings of his forefathers against the Marinids.

The entire text was reported by al-Maqqari:... The lord of Castile has proposed for us a respectable residence and has given us assurances of safety to which he pledged by his own handwriting, enough to convince the souls, but we, as descendants of Banu al-Ahmar, didn't settle for this and our faith in God does not permit us to reside under the protection of disbelief. We received from the east many letters full of goodwill, inviting us to come to their lands and offering the best of advantages, but we cannot choose other than our home and the home of our forefathers, we can only accept the protection of our relatives, not because of opportunism but to confirm the brotherhood relationship between us and to fulfill the testament of our forefathers, that tells us not to seek any help other than that of the Marinids and not to let anything obstruct us from going to you. So we traversed the vast lands and sailed the tumultuous sea and we hope that we would not be returned and that our eyes will be satisfied and our hurt and grievous souls will be healed from this great pain...

- Muhamad Abu Abdallah The 17th-century historian Al-Maqqari wrote that Muhammad XII crossed the Mediterranean to Melilla went to Fes where he built a palace. He stayed there until his death in 1533/1534, he was buried near the Musala located outside of "Bab Sheria" in Fes. Muhammad XII was survived by two sons. Al-Maqqari met with his descendants in 1618 in Fes. An alternative final resting place for Muhammad XII is suggested by the late nineteenth century Arabist M. C. Brosselard, who translated a lengthy prescription in Andalusian script on a three foot long onyx slab held in the town museum of Tlemcen; this epitaph marked the tomb of the exiled king our lord Abu-Abdullah who died in Tlemcen in May 1494, aged thirty-four. The conflict between places and dates of death may arise from confusion between Muhammad XII and his uncle El Zagal, who died in North African exile. Spanish chronicler Luis del Mármol Carvajal wrote "Muhammad XII died near the Oued el Assouad at ford told Waqûba during the war between the Marinids and the Saadians."
