Recommended Posts


In the year 1194, after the assasination of the caliph Abu Yusuf by a conspiration against the throne, a council of many generals and governors, was created to "manage" the caliphate, creating a democratic-style government until the new caliph appears.

But that only was a lie to the people.

They started to use the money of the arc's and practically ransack all the money and goods.

That started an very deep economic crisis around the kingdom.

In 1197, the hunger and the poverty, killed dozens of thousands of people, while the high-class of the kingdom started to migrate to other lands with the stealed money.

But then, in 1198, an new hope for the kingdom, appeared.

That was, Avibi Hammud III
