Arabia | Father of Conquest
Cavalry | Conquering | Skill
Baibars was the forth Sultan of Egypt and Syria during the Mamluk dynasty. In September 1260, he routed the invading Mongol army at the Battle of Ain Jalut – this was the first major defeat ever suffered by the Mongols. During the battle, Baibars implemented a strategy of hit-and-run tactics, which baited the Mongol forces into an devastating ambush.
Baibars is renowned both for his victories against the Mongols and Crusaders, and for the administrative reforms he implemented within the sultanate. An ambitious military leader, Baibars organized an army and restructured the existing navy. He donated heavily to public works, including building roads, mosques, schools, and post offices, as well as irrigation projects to increase the country’s grain production. Baibars’ reign pushed the Crusader’s out of Mamluk territory once and for all, and began a new age of Mamluk supremacy in the Eastern Mediterranean.
