Muhammad V returns from exile

Granada, Spain

During the three-year period of the reign of Muhammad VI, Muhammad V was plotting his return to power. A chance came in 1362 when King Peter I of Castile (Pedro el Cruel) lured Muhammad VI to his kingdom. There, in Seville, he was murdered and his head sent to Muhammad V as a gift upon his return to the throne. Muhammad V would then rule Granada for nearly the next 30 years in an age of peace and prosperity unrivaled in the history of the Nasrid dynasty.
