High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The Emirate of Granada
was established in 1228, after the Almohad dynasty was defeated by
the Christians at the Battle of Las Navas de Tolosa. The Almohad
prince Idris had left Iberia to take the Almohad leadership, then
ambitious Ibn al-Ahmar established the longest lasting Muslim
dynasty on the Iberian peninsula - the Nasrids. With the
Reconquista in full swing after the conquest of Cordoba in 1236,
the Nasrids aligned themselves with Ferdinand III of Castile,
officially becoming a tributary state in 1238. The state officially
became the Kingdom of Granada in 1238. The Nasrid emirs and kings
were responsible for building most of the palaces in the Alhambra.
The taifa became a vassal state of the Christian kingdom of Castile
for the next 250 years. The Nasrid emirs and kings paid tribute to
the Christian kings and collaborated with them in their battle
against rebellious Muslims under Christian rule.
