The Last Muslim King Of Spain, Part 2: Eye Of The Storm

Anthology of Heroes History

May 23 2022 • 41 mins

'Stop, stop! Don't kill him you fool, that's the Moorish King!' Boabdil's path to the throne had not been easy. He had been pressured into overthrowing his father by his mother and was captured during his first battle. After being forced to swear an oath of loyalty to The Christian King Ferdinand, many of his countrymen called him a traitor to Islam. With an army of Christian muscle backing him, the 22 year old King marched back to reclaim his homeland. The war-weary citizens of Granada had to pick a side.  Should they support the Old King who defended Islam but bought destruction to their lands? Or his son, who bought peace but at the price of their dignity? Part 2 of 3. Help support the show on Patreon! Sources and Attributions on our website.
