The Arab Caliphate: Abbasid Dynasty (750-1258).

February 10th 2008 is the sad 750th anniversary of the fall of Baghdad and the demise of the Abbasid Empire, established in 750. On February 10th 1258 the hordes of Mongol prince Hulagu sacked Baghdad. Once the World's greatest city was destroyed; up to a million people massacred. The Abbasid Empire was the largest Empire of its time. It stretched from the Atlantic Ocean to China. During 508 years it was ruled by 38 Caliphs of the Abbasid dynasty, direct descendants of the Prophet Abraham through the male line. 10 days after the fall of Baghdad the last Caliph Al Mustasim perished the death of a martyr. Several of his sons fled to different countries. The Syrian line spread itself and gained importance. Emirs Ruslan and Iskander belong to it. 750 years have passed, but Iraq is still in the paws of barbarians...

It's nice to see their descendants still exist today. Abbasid Caliphate was really the glory of Islam. Khalifah Harun al-Rashid, Khalifah al-Ma'mun and Khalifah al-Amin are among my favourites. I'm surprised their descendants still alive.

May I know from which country Emirs Ruslan and Iskander are residing currently? Are they from Caucasian region?

Hi, Ephram.

Actually, Al Mansoor was the greatest Abbasid Caliph. There are millions of people claiming Abbasid descent in the direct male line. However, not all of them are real, as was shown by DNA testing. People that are considered Abbasids include the President of Sudan Mr. Omar Hassan Al Bashir. Emirs Ruslan and Iskander are from Moscow, Russia, but their paternal ancestors are from Damascus, Syria. Currently they are residing in Moscow. And no, they have no connection to the Caucasus region.
