Abstract:   (3575 Views)
Mamluks despite their glorious past gradually became weak and finally collapsed. As this fact has always been a question for historians, this research from the view point of economic issues, seeks to find the main economic factors which collaborated in Mamluks fall.
Applying descriptive analytical approach, the study confirms that a bulk of economic in addition to political issues put serious effect on the fall of Mamluk authority. Political issues such as: the lack of legitimacy, civil conflicts, succession crisis and Ottoman’s frequent invasions should also be considered in the subject. In fact economic crisis as well as the discovery of “Cape of Good Hope” which resulted to the abandonment of Mamluk trade routes beside other problematic issues like: natural catastrophes, recession, poor production industry, administrative corruption, hoard and public discontent, led to the collapse of Mamluks. Indeed economic crisis along with political issues may lead to the collapse of any other administration.
Keywords: Mamluks, weakening and fall, recession, administrative corruption, Cape of Good Hope .
