Coalition against Granada

Granada, Spain

The Christian kingdoms agreed to attack Granada, not sign a separate peace, and divide its territories between them. Aragon would gain one-sixth of the kingdom and Castile would gain the rest. James II also made a pact with Sultan Abu al-Rabi, offering galleys and knights for the Marinid conquest of Ceuta in return for fixed payments, as well as for receiving all movable goods gained in the conquest.

The three powers prepared for war against Granada and the two Christian kingdoms — without mentioning the Marinid collaboration — asked the Pope Clement V to grant a crusading bull and financial support from the church.
