This edition of manuscript 633 from Yale University´s Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library contains an unpublished version of Hernando de Baeza's chronicle History of the Moorish Kings of Granada. In it, Baeza narrates the decline of the Nasrid dynasty in the Kingdom of Granada during the fifteenth century. Written at the beginning of the following century, this work is a first-person account of palatial intrigues and diplomatic and military enterprises. Baeza’s account brings together perspectives from different sides of historical events in an attempt to understand the unification and Christianization of Spain from the point of view of the diverse and complex identity of the Frontera.
