Al-Muwaffaq
Abu Ahmad Talha ibn Ja'far (Arabic: أبو أحمد طلحة بن جعفر‎) (842 – June 2, 891), better known by his laqab as al-Muwaffaq bi-Allah (Arabic: الموفق بالله‎, "Blessed of God"[2]), was an Abbasid prince and military leader, who acted as the virtual regent of the Abbasid Caliphate for most of the reign of his brother, Caliph al-Mu'tamid. His stabilization of the internal political scene after the decade-long "Anarchy at Samarra", his successful defence of Iraq against the Saffarids and the suppression of the Zanj Rebellion restored a measure of the Caliphate's former power and began a period of recovery, which culminated in the reign of al-Muwaffaq's own son, the Caliph al-Mu'tadid.Contents1 Early life 2 Regent of the Caliphate2.1 Campaigns3 References 4 SourcesEarly life[edit]Family tree of the Abbasid dynasty in the middle and late 9th centuryTalha, commonly known by the teknonym Abu Ahmad, was the son of the Caliph Ja'far al-Mutawakkil (r

Anarchy At Samarra
The term "Anarchy at Samarra" refers to the period 861–870 in the history of the Abbasid Caliphate, which was marked by extreme internal instability and the violent succession of four caliphs, who became puppets in the hands of powerful rival military groups. The term derives from the then capital and seat of the caliphal court, Samarra. The "anarchy" began in 861, with the murder of Caliph al-Mutawakkil by his Turkish guards. His successor, al-Muntasir, ruled for six months before his death, possibly poisoned by the Turkish military chiefs. He was succeeded by al-Musta'in. Divisions within the Turkish military leadership enabled Musta'in to flee to Baghdad

Bey
