In 1394, however, thanks to palace intrigues aimed at dismissing the usurper in favor of his brother, the legitimate heir to the throne, the Cofradía had a good opportunity to gain access to the wisdom kept in Granada; and it is for this reason that the alchemist Yusuf is commissioned to return to his homeland and get in touch, within the Alhambra, with the leader of the conspiracy.
