The Monteleón dynasty was a Castillian noble family that acquired great swaths of land during the Castillian conquest of Morocco in the 15th century.
Their great hour came in 1628 when the Triple Monarchy of England-Castille-Portugal fell apart. During this chaotic time, their head Francisco managed to be accepted as Moroccan king by the Cortes of Morocco.
In 1634, the Castillian Civil War ended with the proclamation of the new state of Spain under the Aliaga dynasty. 1639, Maria, the princess of Spain and future queen (her father Alfonso XII had no son) married the king of Morocco (who was not acknowledged by Spain). While Francisco of Monteleón bragged at the beginning how he was going to "bend that weak woman", the contract she negotiated with him at the end gave her actually the possibility to co-govern in Morocco, while he had nothing to say in Spain or its colonies in Atlantis.
