Save Money On Flights

This Alone Would Be Scarcely Satisfactory As A Basis For The Retrospective Control Of Reigns Extending Through Nearly Three Centuries; But We Find Some Other Checks.

Thus in Quatremere's Makrizi we find a correspondence between Sultan Bibars and the King of Habasha, or of Amhara, Mahar AMLAK, which occurred in A.H. 672 or 673, i.e. A.D. 1273-1274.

This would fall within the reign of Icon AMLAK according to Bruce's chronology, but not according to Salt's, and a fortiori not according to any chronology throwing the reigns further back still.

In Quatremere's Egypte we find another notice of a letter which came to the Sultan of Egypt from the King of Abyssinia, IAKBA SIUN, in Ramadhan 689, i.e. in the end of A.D. 1289.

Again, this is perfectly consistent with Bruce's order and dates, but not with Salt's.

The same work contains a notice of an inroad on the Mussulman territory of Assuan by David (II.), the son of Saif Arad, in the year 783 (A.D. 1381-1382).

In Rink's translation of a work of Makrizi's it is stated that this same King David died in A.H. 812, i.e. A.D. 1409; that he was succeeded by Theodorus, whose reign was very brief, and he again by Isaac, who died in Dhulkada 833, i.e. July-August 1430. These dates are in close or substantial agreement with Bruce's chronology, but not at all with Salt's or any chronology throwing the reigns further back.
