Shield Hisn Kayfa.png
The Ayyubid dynasty, once the scourge of Christianity, and the masters of Syria, Egypt and Arabia, still remain in the Kurdistani fortress of Hisn Kayfa. Fiercely independent, the small state has managed to survive in independence amidst giants such as the Flag of Timurids Timurids or Flag of Qara Qoyunlu Qara Qoyunlu.

As 1444 opens, the Ayyubid princes have recently managed to overcome their local rivals and former vassals, the Artuqids, and solidified their hold over their small principality by the Tigris.

In 1444 the Ayyubid empire is a faint memory, but one branch of their dynasty still holds the single province of Hisn Kayfa sandwiched between the countries of Aq Qoyunlu and Qara Qoyunlu.
