Today in European history: the Treaty of Granada (1491)

The final curtain came down on Muslim Spain on January 2, 1492, when the last Muslim ruler of Granada, the Nasirid Sultan Abu Abdullah Muhammad XII (“Boabdil” to the Spaniards, for whom “Abu Abdullah” was apparently too hard to pronounce), went into exile in Morocco. But the departure was a formality. Boabdil was obliged to leave by the Treaty of Granada, which he signed, along with the victorious King Ferdinand (d. 1516) and Queen Isabella (d. 1504), on November 25, 1491.
