Bādīs ibn al-Mansūr ibn Buluqqīn ibn Zīrī

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Bādīs ibn al-Mansūr ibn Buluqqīn ibn Zīrī ( Arabic باديس بن المنصور بن بلقين بن زيري, DMG Bādīs b. al-Manṣūr b. Buluqqīn b. Zīrī , * before 995; † 1016 ), with the surname Abū Manād Bādīs Nāsir ad-Daula ( Arabic أبو مناد باديس ناصر الدولة, DMG Abū Manād Bādīs Nāṣir ad-daula  , 'Abū Manād Bādīs, Protector of the Dynasty') ruled from 995 to 1016 as the third ruler of the Zirids in Ifrīqiya .

Bādīs ibn Zīrī succeeded his father al-Mansur ibn Ziri († 995) as viceroy in Ifriqiya in 995. He leaned back increasingly to his overlords, the Fatimids in Egypt . The reason for this was power struggles within the Zirids. On the one hand, his right of inheritance was contested by his great-uncle Zāwī ibn Zīrī, but this could be driven to Andalusia , where he founded the Zirid dynasty of Granada (1012-1090).

More serious was that Hammād, as the uncle of Bādīs and governor in Algeria, expanded his power and established his own residence with Qalat Banu Hammad near Bidschaya . Badis could not shake this position in the following period, so that the Hammadids broke away from the Zirids in 1014. In the following battles, the Zirids received no support from the Fatimid overlords, so that they could no longer subdue the Hammadids. He was succeeded by his son al-Muizz ibn Ziri († 1062).
