The Story of the Final Days of Islamic Spain


The days of the Caliphate of Cordoba, which once held supremacy over the Iberian Peninsula, are long over. 'Islamic Spain', known as Al Andalus has entered into its swan song years. The powerful Christian Kingdoms of Iberia are ready to strike the final blow. However, in midst of this chaotic time, a new kingdom arises and with it, a new dynasty. The Nasrid come to power and through luck, cunning, and shear audacity hold power in Granada for over 260 years. But, despite leaving an impressive cultural legacy, the Nasrid Dynasty is destined to be the Last Kingdom of Islam of the Reconquista.
