Taherid Dynasty (821–873)

One of the most capable and aggressive generals in Mamoun’s army was Taher Dhu’l-Yaminayn (Taher the Ambidextrous), whose forces were responsible for killing Amin after the fall of Baghdad. Taher came from an Iranian family prominent in Abbasid affairs since the days of the revolution, and Taher himself could be compared to Abu Moslem in his political importance. Unlike Abu Moslem, however, he did not make the mistake of trusting in gratitude for the services that caliph had rendered. Instead of staying too long outside Iran, in 821, Taher requested and received the governorship of Khorasan, which included the authority over all provinces of east of Iraq. Once there, it was said that he had to Mamoun dropped from the sermon at Friday prayer services, and he definitely omitted the caliph’s name from some of the coins he had minted and commanded his own regional army. Although he died only a year later, his office was inherited by his son and remained in the Taherid family for some fifty years.
