Title : Scholarly Views of Shajarat Al-Durr: A Need for Consensus [Shajarat Al-Durr rose from the Mamluk harem to dominance of Egypt at the time of Louis IX's crusade. She gained power through one husband and placed a second on the throne, exercising power through allies as well as ruling briefly in her own right. During this time she freed the captured Louis IX for a very large ransom and regained Damietta from the Crusaders. Her murder of her second husband led to her downfall and execution. Most accounts of her life, even the feminist ones, give only a partial account of her achievements. Title note supplied by Feminae.]
