The Ayyubid SultanateThe Ayyubid Sultanate, A.D. 1174 Summer

The Ayyubid dynasty, a muslim dynasty of Kurdish origin, was formed only very recently. It’s origins trace back to Syria, when king Nur ad-Din of the Zengid dynasty, based in Damascus, sent Saladin and his uncle Shirkuh to conquer Egypt in. At the time Egypt was controlled by the Fatamid Caliphate, which had been in conflict with the Zengid dynasty since the early 1160s. Despite receiving only an initial military education from his uncle, who had served as a lieutenant for Nur ad-Din on campaigns against the Fatamids, Saladin managed to gain victory in 1169.As of 1169, Saladin was immediately confronted with the difficulty task to defend Egypt against the Crusader Kingdom of Jerusalem. Without control of the Egyptian army, Saladin was not expected to last very long against the incursions of the Christian knights. With the death of the last ,of a long line of child Caliphs controlling Egypt, Saladin gained control over Egypt. However, he still answered to Nur ad-Din of the Zengid Dynasty.Since Saladin assumed control over Egypt he had managed to reorganize the military and revitalize the economy. However as the years went by he became estranged from his master. Saladin had began to plot against the Zengid Dynasty, however, following the advice of his father, he did not take action until the death of Nur ad-Din in 1174. He assumed the title of Sultan and restored Sunnism to Egypt. Immediately after gaining complete control over Egypt he began his expansion by declaring war on Nur ad-Din’s son As-Salih Ismail and seizing Damascus.With the right actions the Ayyubid Sultanate can become a super power in the Middle-East. Expansion is possible in every direction, however the first task ahead of should be defeating the Kingdom of Jerusalem, who’s territory divides the Damascus region with Egypt.
