Abu'l-Walid Ismail II (October 2, 1338 – June 24, 1360), was the second son of Yusuf I and the ninth Nasrid ruler of the Moorish Emirate of Granada in Al-Andalus on the Iberian Peninsula. He reigned from August 1359 until June 1360.


Ismail II was the eldest son of Yusuf I's second wife Maryem, born nine months after his elder half-brother Muhammad V on October 2, 1338. He conspired with his mother, his full blood sister and her husband Muhammad VI to take control of the kingdom. Conspirators took the palace by surprise in August 1359. Ismail II's half-brother, the legitimate ruler Muhammad V escaped with his family first to Gaudix and then across the sea to Morocco, where he was given asylum.

Ismail II came to the throne and lasted less than a year. He and his brother Qays were murdered in a dungeon of the Alhambra on the orders of his brother in-law Muhammad VI on June 24, 1360 AD. His brother in-law ruled as Muhammad VI.
