Granada is a small four province Muslim nation that starts on the southern coast of the Iberian peninsula as the remnants of the Muslim nations that once ruled most of the region. It is usually quickly conquered by its powerful northern Catholic neighbours as it is required to form Spain.

Granada is typically a tough nation to play as, but that difficulty can be mitigated with the right Allies. Tunis, Morocco, and in some cases the Ottomans can be helpful in beating back Spain or Aragon.
If the player wants to stay strong and get the achievement - Re-Reconquista, then allies are a must. It is recommended to start expanding in North Africa as soon as possible while securing allies. Players often find Tlemcen as the first enemy, since they always rival the player and are often aggressive towards Morocco and Tunis . Morocco will always start friendly towards the player, so it makes a good first ally, while Tunis might join in on the pact if Morocco and Tunis are not rivaled to each other. It is recommended to attack Tlemcen early, so that potential long-term ally Ottomans will not ally Tlemcen, preventing expansion.
During the conquest, the Granada disaster might fire, if the player does not have an heir or have a heir with lower 5,5,5 stats. However, this will allow Granada to get a better heir or ruler depending on player action.
After the conquest of Algeria, players are advised to spend time building up, as Spain will get claims over Granadan lands. If the the player's lands in Iberia are lost early, it is still possible reclaim them with sufficient planning and skill, but note that consolidating Algerian alone land will likely not be enough to fight Spain. Players may find it useful to force vassalage on some of the smaller North African states such as Fezzan , Touggourt , Djerid and Mzab, as doing so will make it easy to rival Castile and Portugal. Additionally, this may trick Aragon and France to attack Spain.
Also, keep in mind that the Castilian Civil War will happen, so that is potentially a good time to snatch a province or two, or if they are ever being warred by Aragon. Breaking Alliance between Portugal, England and Castile could be useful, so that a player with strong Muslim allies could retake the lands more easily.
At the default start date 1444 Granada starts with this disaster looming over the country.
