Baibars also spelled Baybars, most eminent of the mamluk sultans of Egypt and Syria, which he ruled from 1260 to 1277.
Baibars was a popular ruler in the Muslim World who had defeated the Crusaders in three campaigns, and the Mongols in the Battle of Ain Jalut which many scholars deem of great macro-historical importance. In order to support his military campaigns, Baibars commissioned arsenals, warships and cargo vessels. He was also arguably the first to employ explosive hand cannons in war, at the Battle of Ain Jalut.
The Sirat Baybars, a folk account purporting to be his life story, is still popular in the Arabic-speaking world.
