Show Summary Details


This chapter gives an account of the conquest of Egypt by the Arabs; and the subsequent changes in its government. It talks about the Viceroys appointed by the Khalee'fehs, the Dynasty of the Ben'ee Too'loo'n, and the Ikhsheedee'yeh. It also discusses the Khalee'fehs of the race of Fa't'meh, who ruled over the greater part of Northern Africa. The Fawa'tim were succeeded by the Eiyoo'bee'yeh, or Soolta'ns of the race of Eiyoo'b; who were a Koord family. To the dynasty of the Eiyoobee'yeh, succeeded that of the Turkish or Toorkama'n Memloo'k Soolta'ns, also called El-Memalee'k El-Bahhree'yeh, or the Bahh'ree Memloo'ks. Finally, the conquest of Egypt by the Turks, under the Soolta'n Selee'm, in the year of the flight 923 (A.D. 1517), put an end to the dynasty of the Boorgee Memloo'k Soolta'ns.
