  • February 28: Spanish troops under the command of Rodrigo Ponce de León capture the Moorish fortress of Alhama de Granada in the Emirate of Granada during the Reconquista . A few days later, the Emir of Granada, Abu l-Hasan Ali , made an attempt to recapture it. An army of the Duke of Medina-Sidonia comes to the aid of the troops of the Marquis of Cadiz, so that Abu l-Hasan Ali is forced to give up the reconquest. When King Ferdinand V intervenes in the conflict at the head of an army, the confrontation loses the characteristic of the hitherto customary raids and becomes a war of Castile against the Emirate of Granada .
  • The first major clash of the enemy occurs in June off Loja , when the Spanish army, which has not yet completed the preparations to besiege the town, is attacked by the Moorish light cavalry and, as they retreat, are crushed by more Moorish troops. King Ferdinand withdraws to Córdoba with the rest of his army .
  • While Abu l-Hasan Ali is still fighting the Christian attackers, his son can be identified as Muhammad XII. proclaimed ruler of the emirate. During Muhammad XII. ruled in Granada , his father ruled Ronda and the western part of the emirate.

Coat of arms of the administrator of the Archdiocese of Mainz

Diether von Isenburg , Archbishop and Elector of Mainz and thus Archchancellor of the Holy Roman Empire at the same time , dies on 7 May.

First page of the Münsinger contract

The Münsinger Treaty of December 14 reunited the two parts into which the County of Württemberg had been divided since the Nürtinger Treaty of 1442. The inheritance disputes between the Uracher and the Stuttgart part are thus settled after 40 years. Count Eberhard V. im Bart , residing in Urach , takes over the government of the country and moves his residence to Stuttgart , the capital of the other part of the country. The line of succession is based on the incumbent Count in the Stuttgart part of the country, Eberhard VI. fixed. The contract, which was negotiated with the participation of representatives of the Württemberg estates , stipulates the indivisibility of the state and the primogeniture in Württemberg in a legally binding manner . The Münsinger Treaty prevents the fragmentation of Württemberg and thus creates an important prerequisite for the elevation of Württemberg to a duchy in 1495.

  • Turin becomes the residence of the House of Savoy .
