Abu Abdallah Muhammad XII (c. 1460 - c. 1533), known to the Castilians as Boabdil, was the twenty-second and last Nasrid ruler of Granada in Iberia. Son of Abu l-Hasan Ali, sultan of the Emirate of Granada, Muhammad succeeded him in 1482 Muhammad XII soon after sought to gain prestige by invading Castile. He was taken prisoner at Lucena in 1483. Meanwhile, his father returned to power and then in 1485, his uncle Muhammed XIII, also known as Abdullah ez Zagal. He only obtained his freedom and support to recover his throne in 1487 by consenting to hold Granada as a tributary kingdom under the Catholic monarchs and not to intervene in the Siege of Málaga (1487), in which Málaga was taken by the Christians. By the beginning of 1491, Granada was the only Muslim-governed city in Spain.
