  Selim I - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Selim I (1465 September 22, 1520; also known as "the Grim" or "the Brave", Yavuz in Turkish) was the sultan of the Ottoman Empire from 1512 to 1520.
The campaign which followed was a triumph for Selim, whose firmness and courage overcame the pusillanimity and insubordination of the Janissaries, the household troops of the Ottoman dynasty.
After Selim became master of the holy cities of Islam and captured Egypt along with the person of Al-Mutawakkil III, the last Caliph of the Abbasid dynasty who resided there, Selim induced him to formally surrender the title of caliph as well as its outward emblems, the sword and the mantle of the prophet.
