The Abbasid CaliphateThe Abbasid Caliphate, A.D. 1174 Summer

The Abbasid Caliphs came to the throne after declaring a revolution against the Umayyads. The core of the revolution was the province of Greater Khorasan (now in Iran and Afghanistan). They successfully destroyed the army of the Umayyad Caliphate in the Battle of Zab River in 750. Following the battle, they seized Damascus, the seat of the Umayyads, and exterminated most (but not all) of the Umayyad royal family. Abu al-'Abbas as-Saffah was declared as the 1st Abbasid caliph. He made the city of Anbar (now in Iraq) the capital of the new Abbasid Caliphate. His empire extended from Iberia to the borders of India and China. When he died, he was succeeded by his brother, caliph Abu Ja'far al-Mansur. During his reign, al-Mansur built Baghdad and encouraged his court to translate the books of the Persians and Greeks. Also during this period, Abd ar-Rahman, a remaining Umayyad prince, escaped to Iberia and established an independent emirate there./n/nThe Abbasid Caliphs came to the throne after declaring a revolution against the Umayyads.

These are elite soldiers that are well known and used in the mideast. Their charge with lances and their skills with the mace are deadly to almost all enemies. These men have not much to look forward to except all the glorious battles they will encounter, thanks to their supreme skills in warfare.
