The nineteenth-century author of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow presents a vivid history of the Granada War, which ended Islamic rule in Spain. From 1482 to 1492, Catholic monarchs Isabella I of Castile and Ferdinand II of Aragon mounted a series of military campaigns against the Nasrid kingdom of Granada. Washington Irving's acclaimed Chronicles of the Conquest of Granada describes the struggles and numerous battles of the ten-year conflict, which culminated with the annexation of Granada by Castile. Irving frames the text as a recovered contemporary manuscript written by the fictional Jesuit priest Fray Antonio Agapida, lending a sense of immediacy to his narrative.
