The Conquest of Tripoli was a maritime campaign led by Pedro Navarro. On the morning of Thursday, July 25, 1510, St. James's Day, a Spanish fleet commanded by Navarro arrived in front of Tripoli. Approximately 6,000 marines came from Spanish ships, half of whom were employed in the siege of the city, while the others stayed in the camp to prevent an Ottoman attack from the hinterland. With the effective use of naval artillery, the Spanish quickly captured the maghreb city.

After capturing the city, Spanish forces destroyed many of its buildings and killed or enslaved much of the population. In 1524,[citation needed] Spain gave Tripoli to the Knights of St. John, who lost it in 1551 to Ottoman captain Turgut Reis.
