Chapter Summary

The actions taken by the Castilian crown are fundamental to an understanding of the origin of the Moorish guard and its role as a bridge between three different ambits: the Christian, the Granadan and the Mudejar. Although its territorial scope had been gradually reduced, Granada still clung to its position as the last bastion of Islam in the Iberian peninsula. Far from seeing its importance to Castile as having diminished, Castilian monarchs continued to welcome parias from Granada whenever the Castilian government was strong enough to impose them by force of arms. The history of the kingdom of Granada after 1408 is characterised by the gradual disintegration of the Nasrid dynasty. The economic dislocation brought about by the instability of the political situation may have been one of the main causes of the internal conflicts suffered by the Nasrid kingdom during its last century.
