Chapter Summary

In terms of its contents, the annal of the year 778 is typical of what one usually finds in the chronicles of the Mamluk period with their often dreary litanies of appointments, personnel turnover, political events, etc. The defining episode of the year, one that occupies the most space in an otherwise very typical annal, was the murder of al-Ashraf Shaʿbān. In the middle of Shawwāl 778, the sultan, the great grandson of al-Manṣūr Qalāwūn, headed towards the Ḥijāz to perform the ḥajj. Historically, this regicide represents the demise of the last effective Qalāwūnī and heralds the rise of the Circassian rulers.

Keywords: Al-Ashraf Shaʿbān; al-Manṣūr Qalāwūn; Early Mamluk Circassian period
