Ikhshidid dynasty


Ikhshidid dynasty

The Ikhshidid dynasty of Egypt (sometimes transliterated other ways) ruled from 935 to 969. It was founded by Muhammad bin Tughj who began as governor, and was later given the title "Ikhshid" (Persian for "prince") by the Caliph. The dynasty came to an end when the Fatimid army conquered Cairo in 969.
