About the Sovereign


Mohammad Al-Manil Al-Wajdi Al-Abderrafi Ibn Horrah Ibn Gowan



1. Mohammad wearing gorget, Prince tabard and white belt.

His Majesty is a Mamluk persona, who lives as a nomad with his group in the deserts between Turkey and Syria. Born in 1273 in Inverness Scotland, under the name of Morgan MacGowan, from a Highlander mom (Argyle MacGowan) and a French merchant (Jonas de Soulac), he lived his early youth as a farmer with his 2 brothers. 

His mother, a solider, was never at home and died when Mohammad was 5 years old. After his mother died, his father, who wasn’t able to take care of his sons, placed his sons under the guardianship of a friend in Constantinople, to educate them. Morgan, renamed Mohammad Al Abderrafi, studied philosophy and mathematics for a year before they were attacked by a Mamluk tribe. 

One of his brother’s died, the other one escaped and disappeared, and Mohammad was captured. Immediately, Mohammad was tested by the mamluks to see if he could be one of them and survived. He became a Mamluk slave at the age of 6 and entered the Furûsiyya (the western chivalry), where he found the asabiyya (“esprit de corps”)among his new family.
