Notes on Islamic descents

Notes on the possibility of Islamic descents through the Royal houses of Spain and Portugal.


Unlike Jesus, the Prophet Muhammad left many descendants, and prominent Muslims were interested from an early period in tracking his descendants, and also marrying them. As a result, there are many Islamic lines claiming to descend from Muhammad. And many of them may be true.

One big mystery is whether we can connect Western Christian lines to this tree. There is not yet any proven descent from the Prophet Muhammad to medieval European Christian lines. If any descent is established, it will probably be through medieval Spain and Portugal.
