Morisco Revolt - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (275 words)
Philip II of Spain decided to reintroduce old laws prohibiting their customs, religion and language, to goad the minority of Moriscos living in Granada into an open revolt that he could contain, rather than wait for them to side with a possible Ottoman invader in the near future.
The Morisco rallied under the leadership of Aben Humeya and evolved into a guerrilla unit based in the Alpujarra mountains.
The suppression of the revolt was handled by Philip's half-brother Don Juan de Austria, the illegitimate son of Charles I - and was fought with a large number of troops from Castile who ended the revolt in 1571.
