  • 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 attempts to recapture it. An army of the Duke of Medina-Sidonia comes to the aid of the Marquis of Cádiz's troops, so that Abu l-Hasan Ali is forced to give up the reconquest. When King Ferdinand V intervened in the conflict at the head of an army, the dispute lost the characteristics of the raids that had been common up to now and turned into a war between Castile and the emirate of Granada .
  • The first major clash of the opponents took place in June outside Loja , when the Spanish army, which had not yet completed the preparations for the siege of the city, was attacked by the Moorish light cavalry and wiped out by other Moorish troops as they retreated. King Ferdinand withdraws to Córdoba with the remains of his army .
  • While Abu l-Hasan Ali is still fighting the Christian attackers, his son can be seen as Muhammad XII. proclaim ruler of the emirate. While Muhammad XII. ruled in Granada , his father ruled Ronda and the western part of the emirate.

Further events in the empire

Coat of arms of the administrator of the Archdiocese of Mainz

Diether von Isenburg , Archbishop and Elector of Mainz and thus also Arch Chancellor of the Holy Roman Empire , dies on May 7th . The very next day, Adalbert von Sachsen became his successor. However, since at the age of 15 he is not yet of the formal age for episcopal ordination, he is only used as an administrator for the time being.

First page of the Münsinger contract

The Münsinger Treaty of December 14th reunites the two parts into which the County of Württemberg has split since the Nürtingen Treaty of 1442 . The inheritance disputes between the Urach and Stuttgart parts are thus settled after 40 years. Count Eberhard V. im Bart , who resided in Urach , took over the government of the state and moved the residence to Stuttgart , the capital of the other part of the country. The succession is to the incumbent count in the Stuttgart region Eberhard VI. set. With the contract, which is negotiated with the participation of representatives of the Württemberg state estates , the indivisibility of the state and the primogeneity in Württemberg are legally binding. The Münsingen 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 .




  • Axayacatl , ruler of the Aztec city Tenochtitlán , dies at the age of 30. He is succeeded by his older brother Tízoc . The military campaign traditionally carried out to ascend the throne for the purpose of capturing warriors, an attack on the northeastern small state of Mextitlán fails, which permanently damages Tízoc's reputation.
