Ibrahim ibn Tashfin

Ibrahim ibn Tashfin (Arabic: إبراهيم بن تاشفين) (died 1147) was the seventh Almoravid emir, who reigned shortly in 1146–1147. Once the news of the death of his father Tashfin ibn Ali reached Marrakech, he was proclaimed king while still an infant. He was soon replaced by his uncle Ishaq ibn Ali, but the Almohads quickly subdued Marrakech and killed both.
