Exotic Eastern Woman - Citadel, Tombs of Mamluks, Cairo Featured Print

Exotic Eastern Woman - Citadel, Tombs of Mamluks, Cairo

Composite photographic postcard showing an illustration of an exotic Eastern woman set before a skyline showing the Citadel and Tombs of the Mamluks, Cairo, Egypt. A mamluk was a slave soldier who converted to Islam and served the Muslim caliphs and the Ayyubid sultans from the 9th to the 13th centuries. They were mainly Kipchak Turks. While Mamluks were purchased, their status was above ordinary slaves, who were not allowed to carry weapons or perform certain tasks. Mamluks were considered to be true lords, with social status above freeborn Egyptians. Over time, they became a powerful military caste often defeating the Crusaders. On more than one occasion, they seized power for themselves; for example, ruling Egypt in the Mamluk Dynasty from 12501517. Date: 1907
