And the "Granada-Venegas" family?
This noble Christian family were descendants of Cid Hiaya el-Nayyar (d.1506), cousin of Boabdil. I think he was the son of Aboul Celin and grd-son of the Nasrid Yusuf IV (d.1432).
His Christian name: Pedro de Granada
wife: Ceti Meriem (Christian name: María Venegas)
Perhaps a true example?
But TAF wrote: "And let me add that the only (other?) Known case of a Muslim girl (in this case, of a native dynasty) to marry a Christian king occurred even when her dynasty was extirpated and she been forced to flee."
I recently obtained a copy of ‘Las Sultanas de la Alhambra’, by Barbara Boloix Gallardo (2013). Gallardo states that the wife of Yusuf II may have been a Hafsid princess named Jadiya. Her source for this is a 16th century Christian chronicle:
Historia de la Casa Real de Granada (16th c.), p. 33, ed. by Juan De Mata Carriazo
Gallardo notes that the Arabic sources are silent about his wife. There appears to be a separate tradition that Yusuf II married a Marinid princess:
“King Muhamad now proposed that the oath of allegiance should be taken to his son Abu Abdallah Juzef; and the ceremony took place accordingly, being celebrated with magnificent festivities. The marriage of the prince with the daughter of the King of Fez was then negociated, and a short time after the bride was conducted to Medina Granada by the Prince of Fez…”
Condé does not give a source for this information and I am unclear why he thought the wife was a Marinid rather than a Hafsid princess. Both Gallardo and Condé agree that the marriage took place in the latter half of the 1370s. This makes Yusuf II’s Hafsid or Marinid princess his third wife, as he was already a father to a son and daughter (Umm al-Fath and Muhammad VII) by his first wife and another son (Yusuf III) by his second:
“…Su otra esposa principal fue Umm al-Fath, hermana de padre y madre de Muhammad VII y solo de padre de Yusuf III.”
So if we believe source  Yusuf II’s son Muhammad VII (born circa 1370) and Yusuf III (born 1374) were the product of two different earlier wives, but these earlier wives are omitted by Gallardo.
Gallardo identifies Ismael III as the product of Yusuf II’s union with the Hafsid princess, and the possibility remains that his brother Ali was as well. The 16th Christian Chronicle cited earlier calls Ali the third son (though Ismail III is absent from this list). Although he never became sultan, Ali was the male line ancestor of sultans Ismael IV, Muhammad XI (Boabdil) and Muhammad XII (al-Zagal). They descended from Ali’s son Saad, which brings me to my next question.
At least two modern sources identify the wife of Ibn Selim (Aben Celin) as the sister of ‘Ciriza’,  which was an alias used by Saad, son of Ali. Gallardo comments that Ibn Selim ‘enjoyed the confidence of the Nasrid royal family,’ and that he ‘was in charge of the army of the Granada and was in the direct service of Prince Ali’, but is silent about his wife.
I wonder if sources   have confused Ibn Selim’s wife with his mother, who is elsewhere claimed to have been Fatima, daughter of ‘Cirila o Ismail’, whom Gallardo tentatively identifies as Ismail II.
But on the other hand the identification of ‘Cirila o Ismail’ as Ismail II seems questionable; Ismail II died in 1360, and Yusuf IV (father of Ibn Selim) was born about a decade later.
So my main question is does anyone have any other sources pointing to the identity of Yusuf II’s Hafsid or Marinid wife? And Ibn Selim’s wife?
With these uncertainties in mind, it seems possible that Pedro de Granada Venegas, first Senor de Campotejar was a descendant of Yusuf II’s Hafsid or Marinid wife. The proposed line is as follows:
Yusuf II, Sultan of Granada
M(3?): _(Hafsid / Marinid princess)
Ali ibn Yusuf
M: Ibn Selim (Aben Celin) al-Nayyar, Wali of Almeria
Sidi Hiaya al-Nayyar (later Pedro de Granada)
M: Citimerien (Maria) Venegas
Ali Omar ibn Nazar (later Alonso de Granada Venegas)
M: Juana de Mendoza
Pedro de Granada Venegas, 1st Senor de Campotejar
M: Maria Rengifo de Avila
