PIRATERÍA Y CORSO EN EL LITORAL VALENCIANO

Si a partir del último cuarto del siglo XIII la población musulmana del reino de valencia dejó de ser una amenaza militar para los cristianos, si lo fueron en cambio los piratas musulmanes de origen nazarí o norteafricano a partir de mediados del S. XIV, acentuándose su presencia a medida que transcurrió la centuria y agravándose el problema durante el s. XV. La amenaza de la actividad pirática y corsaria musulmana se dejó sentir en el comercio y las poblaciones costeras, las cuales, ante la falta de iniciativas reales en la lucha contra la piratería islámica, estas corrieron a cargo de los municipios costeros, encabezados por la ciudad de Valencia, a base de sistemas de avisos, correos, armamentos de naves, torres de vigilancia, pero que nunca llegaron a grantizar la seguridad del litoral ni a resolver el problema, que se mantuvo durante muchos siglos.

The Art of the Nasrid Period (1232–1492)
Founded by Muhammad I al-Ghalib of Arjona (r. 1232–73), the Nasrid dynasty ruled Granada and neighboring Jaén, Almería, and Málaga in the southern Iberian Peninsula. The early period of Nasrid rule was characterized by insistent pressure from Christian armies from the north, which successfully conquered Valencia, Játiva, and Jaén and made the Nasrids tribute-paying vassals in 1243. The Nasrids formed tentative alliances with the Marinids of the Maghrib and kept uneasy peace with their Christian overlords.

Nasrid dynasty

The Nasrid dynasty or Banu Nazari (Arabic: بنو نصر‎) was the last Muslim dynasty in Spain. The Nasrid dynasty rose to power after the defeat of the Almohad dynasty in 1212 at the Battle of Las Navas de Tolosa. Twenty different kings ruled Granada from the founding of the dynasty in 1232 by Muhammed I ibn Nasr until January 2, 1492, when Sultan Boabdil surrendered to the Christian Spanish kingdom. Today, the most visible evidence of the Nasrids is the Alhambra palace complex built under their rule.
