Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Al-Mu'eiyyad (died 866) was the third son of the Abbasid caliph, Al-Mutawakkil and the brother of Al-Muntasir and Al-Mu'tazz, who both would eventually become Caliphs as well. In 860, Al-Mutawakkil had named his three son's heirs and seemed to favour al-Muntasir. However, this appeared to change and al-Muntasir feared his father was going to move against him. With the implicit support of the Turkish faction of the army, he ordered the assassination of Al-Mutawakkil which was carried out by a Turkish soldier on December 11, 861. The Turkish party then prevailed on al-Muntasir to remove his brothers from the succession, fearing revenge for the murder of their father. In their place, he was to appoint his son as heir-apparent. On April 27, 862 both brothers, Al-Mu'eiyyad and Al-Mu'tazz, wrote a statement of abdication.
