Comments

Al-Muqtadir (Arabic: المقتدر ‎) (born 895 AD (282 AH), died 932 AD (320 AH)) was the Abbasid Caliph in Baghdad from 908 AD to 932 AD (295 AH - 320 AH).

After the previous Caliph, al-Muktafi,was confined for several months to his sick-bed, intrigue was made forsome time as to his successor. The choice was between al-Muktafi'sminor brother whom the Caliph himself favored, and a descendant of al-Mu'tazzwho was only thirteen at the time. The Vazir, hoping for more power,chose the minor. The boy assumed the title of al-Muqtadir, Mighty by the help of the Lord,a sad misnomer; for even in manhood he was but a weak hedonist in thehands of women of the Court, and of their favorites. His twenty-fiveyears reign is the constant record of his thirteen Vazirs, one risingon the fall, or on the assassination, of another.
