Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Al-Mutawakkil al-Muhsin (died July 29, 1878) was an Imam who claimed the Zaidi state of Yemen in 1855-1878, in rivalry with several other contenders and with the invading Turks. His highly contested reign saw the temporary end of the independent Yemeni state. Al-Muhsin bin Ahmad was a Sayyid from Shaharah, a stronghold north of the capital San'a, and he was therefore also known as ash-Shahari. He was a 15th-generation descendant of the imam al-Mutawakkil al-Mutahhar bin Yahya (d. 1298). Al-Muhsin lived in a time of great political turbulence in Yemen. Ottoman troops intervened in highland Yemen in 1849 but then withdrew, leaving the remains of the Zaidi state to its own devices up to 1872. Several contenders for the Zaidi imamate arose in the wake of this event: al-Mansur Ahmad (1849–1853), al-Hadi Ghalib (1851–1852), al-Mansur Muhammad (1853–1890), and al-Mansur al-Husayn III (1859–1863).
