Chapter Summary

With the beginning of 804, less than a year had passed since Tamerlane’s devastating onslaught on Syria. The death of Barqūq in 801/1399 was followed by the accession of his son Faraj under the aegis of Aytamish al-Bajāsī, one of his father’s most faithful companions. The unfinished settling of accounts amongst factions was to continue throughout 804, first with a showdown in Ṣafar between low-ranking amirs and high-ranking ones, such as Nawrūz al-Ḥāfiẓī, Jakam min ʿAwaḍ and Sūdūn Ṭāz. In Syria, the viceroy of Damascus, Taghrībirdī, the father of the historian, narrowly escaped arrest on orders of the sultan and joined Damurdāsh al-Muḥammadī, the viceroy of Aleppo and an old acquaintance of his, who had rebelled earlier against Faraj.
