Chapter Summary

On the foreign policy front, the year 793 did not witness the kind of drama that would occur later on when in 796/1393–4, Barqūq, the head of the still awe-inspiring Mamluk state, and Tamerlane exchanged threats and ultimatums and skirmished on the marches of their respective empires. Politically, however, it was undoubtedly one of the most remarkable years of al-Ẓāhir’s reign. It represented the culmination of a series of events that started with the rebellions of the just mentioned pair at the end of 789/1387 and in Ṣafar of 791, respectively; Barqūq’s eviction from power in Jumādā II; his exile to al-Karak and his escape therefrom in Ramaḍān; his military feats and defeats in Syria in late 791/1389 and early 792/1390; and his return to the throne in the middle of Ṣafar 792.
