Page xx By the early 16th century, the authority of the Abd al-Wadid rulers did not extend much beyond the limits of their capital, Tlemcen, and their survival for another half century mainly resulted from the conflicts between Spaniards, Turks and Moroccans which prevented any one group from permanently annexing the Sultanate.
