Alfonso III of Aragon conquered the island of Majorca in 1285 and Ibiza in 1286 from James II of Majorca, and effectively recovered Minorca from Moorish rule. By the Treaty of Anagni of 1295, however, these island territories were yielded to James. The continental territories, however, remained under Alfonso's control.

At this point, the de facto status of the Kingdom of Spain is made de jure by the Nueva Planta Decrees that formally unites Spain under one crown, formally disbanding the Crown of Aragon and its constituent realms, including the Kingdom of Majorca.
