It's story time again!

It's story time again!

I was going to save this for a later time, but you all have been so nice with your comments, I thought I treat you to a tale of love, hate, splendor, daring and treachery.

This is a story of the Moorish version of the Hatfields and the McCoys. It also has a touch of "West Side Story" to it, which I think you will recognize.

I will give you two differing short versions first, and after that, you will see that the loooong version incorporates elements of both in much greater detail.

I assure you all three versions are worth reading.
Where the truth lies, is anybody's guess, but the theme appear to be ageless, and is played out even today!

The story begins in a courtyard and is called
"Legend of Patio del Cipres".

This Patio, like many of the places, has another name, that being the "Courtyard of the Sultana".

In all three stories a legend of romance and tragedy surrounds this splendid place.

As the first story goes: The wife of the last sultan of Granada was a beautiful woman who was treasured by her husband.

There came a time in their relationship when she became enamoured with a member of another local and powerful family, called the Abencerrages family.

This turned into an affair, as time after time the Sultana secretly met her lover in this garden.

Unfortunately, the Sultan found out, and in his wild rage of jealousy, had all the men of the Abencerrages family murdered in a room in the Leones Palace.

The place where this happened exists today, and is called "The Hall of the Abencerrages".

Another version of the story goes like this:

The Abencerrages (from the Arabic for "Saddler's Son"), were a family or faction that is said to have held a prominent position in the Moorish kingdom of Granada in the 15th century.

As this story unfolds one of the Abencerrages, having fallen in love with a lady of the royal family, was caught in the act of climbing up to her window.

The king, enraged, shut up all the men of the Abencerrages family in one of the halls of the Alhambra, and ordered the Zergis to kill them all.

The apartment where this is to have taken place is one of the most beautiful courts of the Alhambra, and is still called the Hall of the Abencerrages.

You might be asking yourself "Well, who are these 'Zergis' that were the killers?"

The third story reveals all. This story was taken directly from a book called "The story of Spain" by Edward Everett Hale and Susan Hale.

"The Moors, though as a whole making a nation, preserved the patriarchal customs of their ancestors, the Arabs. Each family formed a large tribe, not confounded with any other, more or less powerful in numbers, wealth, and possession of slaves, within which the united members regarded each other as brothers, marched together to battle, taking always the same side in combat, mutually supporting each other, and never separating their fortunes, their interests, or their prejudices, whether for love or hate.

Among these tribes, the most celebrated in tradition and romance was the family of the Abencerrages, descended from ancient kings in Arabia. The very existence of this tribe is now doubted by historians, and the legends concerning their prowess are set down as idle tales, but they form so important, and, at least, so picturesque, a part of the story, of Grenada, that they cannot well be left out here. Some foundation must have existed for the legends of their splendor and daring which remain floating about the ruins of the Alhambra.

The qualities of the princes of the Abencerrages were of the highest sort. Invincible in battle, they were mild and merciful after victory, while their graces and gifts made them the ornament of the Moorish court. They were respected by the Spaniards, whose esteem they won by the kindness they showed to the Christian captives. Their immense wealth was used for the benefit of the poor and suffering. In the tournaments of the Moorish court, in games of skill and chance, the prizes fell to the chiefs of the Abencerrages. It was the boast of the race that it had never been disgraced by a coward, a faithless friend, an inconstant husband, or a perfidious lover.

The rivals of this glorious family were the Zegris, descendants of the kings of Fez. They also were of great distinction. Their valor had time and again carried fire and the sword into the dominions of Castile, hundreds of times their victorious hands had decorated the mosques with banners snatched from the enemy. But these heroic exploits were dishonored by the prevailing trait of the Zegris, a savage thirst for blood. A Zegri was never known to make a captive; every victim perished on the spot by sabre; neither friendship nor love softened their ferocity. They regarded all sensibility as weakness, and looked with contempt on the graces of the court, exchanges of civility, or encounters of repartee. They were fierce and proud, and loved only the field of

Patio Norte

"This patio has several superimposed floors, laid to counteract the sinking of the land and the constant floods that plagued Tenochtitlan. The three small buildings, aligned with the wall of the Great Temple platform, have been given letter designations: A,B and C. They were built around AD 1500 (Stage IV)

Building A is the one closest to us. Its two stairways lead to the upper part. Only stucco plaster remains on the surface.

Building B, or the Tzompantli (Skull Wall) Altar is decorated with rows of human skulls carved in stone.

Building C or the North Red Temple displays well preserved mural painting. The style and decoration of its architecture evoke the Teotihuacan style.

Another small construction may be seen next to the street of Justo Sierra, at the limits of the Archaeological Zone. This is known as building D.

The structure of largest dimensions, located on the north side, is the House of the Eagles. The rooms in it s interior date to an earlier construction phase between AD 1481 and 1486."
