  • After the death of his father Abu l-Abbas Ahmad II, Abd al-Aziz II becomes the Hafsid Caliph in Ifrīqiya . He must first assert himself against revolts of his relatives in Bone, Sfax, Bougie and Constantine as well as against local dynasties in Tripoli, Gafsa and Biskra. The Bedouins must also be subjugated again before the empire can be pacified. Through a tax reform and the promotion of small craftsmen, he tried to revive the economy of the empire successfully. This also serves the conclusion of trade agreements with Sicily, the Italian Maritime Republics and Aragon. However, the trade is considerably strained by the piracy of the Hafsiden, which was already carried out under his father.
