Ahmad II of SamanidAhmad ibn Isma'il —. Another article with the very strange "of Samanid" form of title. It seems that this article could be moved to just Ahmad ibn Isma'il and still be unambiguous. There may be a better way to do this for all I know, but it would certainly be an improvement on the current odd page name. Angus McLellan (Talk) 03:34, 26 February 2010 (UTC)

The Martyred AmirEdit

I will be adding some information about this Amir.

Source: The History of Bukhara by Narshakhi (Translated by Richard Nelson Frye), Pg. 121-122

" ...He is known as the Martyred Amir. ... One night when he came back from Hunting, a messenger brought him a letter from Abul Abbas (Amir of Tabaristan), which stated that Husain Ibn 'Ala had revolted and had seized most of Gurgan and Tabaristan. He (Abul Abbas) was obliged to flee. The Amir became very dissappointed and prayed .. "Great God, if this Kingdom is to fall away from me, then give me death". Then he entered the tent. He had a rule, viz. he had a lion which was fastened by a chain at the door of the house when he slept, so, if anyone were to enter the house while he is sleeping, the lion would kill him. That night, however, the lion were forgotten to be kept there by his domestics. He fell asleep, and a group of Amir's slaves cut off his head. This happened on Thursday of 12 Jan, 914. He was brought to Bukhara and buried in Naukanda. He was designated as the Martyred Amir. After his death, some of his slaves who had killed the Amir were caught and executed, while others fled to Turkestan. His rule lasted 6 yrs, 4 months and 5 days....
