Event details
The year is 1259, just one year after the Siege of Baghdad.  Mongke Khan has a growing sense of doom.  Seeing the end of his reign, he seeks to consolidate power for his son, Kublai, by sending any potential rival far from the center of the Mongol seat of power.  Ariqbok Khan was sent into the far reaches of the Arabic world with the Golden Horde.  Suuder Khan was sent deep into Europe with the Metann Clan.  Suuder leads his troops through Transylvania, Vienna, and Toledo, intending to finally lay siege to Granada.

Meanwhile, spies from Granada returns from their outpost in Greece.  They bring with them tales of Greek mythology and warning of a great Mongol army dispatched with the sole purpose of reaching the Mediterranean through Granada to bring all of southern Europe under control of the Horde.  Right on their heels is the Metann Clan vanguard.

With the Reconquista nearing its climax and al-Andalus all but gone, Muhammed I ibn Nasar barely maintains his rule over the Emirate of Granada under the protection of Alfonso X, ruler of Castile Spain.  Muhammed I, hearing of the coming Metann Clan, sends emissaries to Alfonso X to request aid in the coming battle.  Alfonso X, seeing a chance to finally consolidate his power and claim Granada as part of Castile, agrees to send aid to Muhammed I and agrees to challenge the Horde should they try to sack any Castilian city.  Alfonso X also sends emissaries from Castile to offer the Metann Clan free passage through Castile to sack Granada.  Alfonso X then sends his own army of heavily armored knights with instructions to aid neither side in battle, but instead to sew chaos and ultimately defeat the remnants of whichever army remains in control of Granada. 

Alfonso X has set his plot of deception in motion.  The three great armies prepared to do battle.  The heavily armored monastic knights from Castile, the fast light troops of the Metann Clan, and the fortified kingdom of Granada.
