 Mameluks, the Great Warriors of the Past
Although the Mameluks lost their absolute power, they were strong enough to hold almost every high position in the country and kept their authority.
The warrior skills of an individual Mameluk were very high, but the iron discipline of the French soldiers and the genius of their commander-in-chief always defeat them.
That is the tragedy of Mameluks and their native land - Georgia, which during hundreds of years lost its sons to far lands fighting for some other countries' independence, while at the same time enemies raze it to ground its own.

 9739 Mounted Mameluks of the Consular Imperial Guard, 1802-08 hobby kit by Valiant Miniatures!
In the beginning, the unit, which varied in size between a squadron and a company, was composed almost entirely of bonafide Egyptian Mameluks, but as the Napoleonic Wars took their toll the ranks were increasingly filled with Europeans.
The original Mameluks spoke little French and were aggressively independent; they were not so much a disciplined military organization as an eccentric and fearless band of individuals, bound together only by their loyalty to "him".
This kit represents a Mameluk Officer of this early period, when they were still Mameluks in every sense of the word.

The KEY to this passage is the fact that she was a Mameluk (Touregypt.net, "The official Egyptian Tourist site" on the web, "Shajara").
All was going well until the Caliph of Baghdad told the Mameluks to find a man to rule them.
And this same attitude DIRECTLY caused his own down fall, for the Mameluks of Egypt were the only ones that held the Mongol Empire at bay.

 Marche septennale : les compagnies
Ils figuraient encore dans la septennale de 1858, mais rien ne dit qu'ils étaient fossois.En 1988, une Compagnie de Mameluks de la Garde impériale se forma à l'initiative de quelques anciens tromblons; ils étaient une trentaine à la Saint-Feuillen de 1991 et ils ont participé à diverses sorties depuis lors.
Le mot "mameluk" est la forme passive du verbe arabe "malaka" qui indique la notion de possession : il s'agissait, au début, d'esclaves turcs formant une milice d'élite dans l'armée égyptienne, dès le XVe siècle.
Lors de sa campagne d'Egypte, Bonaparte défit l'armée des Mameluks en 1811, mais réussit à s'en rallier les rescapés qui le suivirent en France et, dès 1803, formèrent une compagnie de la Garde consulaire, impériale en 1804.

The Egyptian towns of the VIIth to XIXth centuries nevertheless, were embellished by works of rare diversity and inventiveness, showing the resolve of Omeyad, Abassid, Fatimid and Mameluke princes to make their own dinstinctive contributions while ultimately serving the same mystique.
