The Damascene Boabdil Sword Letter Opener
by Marto of Toledo Spain


Abu 'abd-Allah Muhammad XII (born 1460; died 1533), known as Boabdil (a Spanish corruption of the name Abu Abdullah), was the twenty-second and last Nasrid ruler of Granada in Iberia. Boabdil was also called el chico, the little, or el zogoybi, the unfortunate. Son of Abu l-Hasan Ali, king of the taifa of Granada, he was proclaimed king in 1482 in place of his father, who was driven from the land.

Muhammad XII soon after sought to gain prestige by invading Castile. Boabdil was taken prisoner at Lucena in 1484. Between 1484 and 1487, he was held prisoner. Power returned to his father and then in 1485 to his uncle Muhammed XIII, also known as Abdullah ez Zagal.

Boabdil only obtained his freedom and support to recover his throne in 1487 by consenting to hold Granada as a tributary kingdom under Ferdinand and Isabella, king and queen of Castile and Aragon, and not to intervene to prevent the conquest of Malaga.

1487 saw the fall of Baeza, Malaga and Almeria. 1489 saw the fall of Almunecar and Salobrena. By the beginning of 1491, Granada was the only Muslim city left in Spain.

These beautiful Damascene Boabdil Sword Letter Openers are manufactured in Toledo Spain by the famous Midas factory of the Marto swordsmiths. The Damascene Boabdil Sword Letter Openers are plated with 24 Karat yellow gold and 18 Karat green gold with a minimum thickness of 4 microns.

Around the 15th century the art work became popular in Europe, and Toledo, Spain became famous worldwide for producing such works of art.
