Sorry, I should clarify. The last update was from 1608 to 1620. This one is from 1620 to 1628.
Husain II Jalayirid
Muscat, Liwa and Nirza also joined in open revolt, opening up the south of many more revolts that eventually made their way up to Basra.
However, even as the revolts were taking place, the benefits of his policies were taking effect. The Western agricultural techniques made their way into Mosul and enabled everyone there to live richer lives.
By the close of 1621, the entirety of the southern peninsula, the entire Kingdom of Oman was in rebel hands and open revolt. However, the tide was quickly turning against the rebels as Husain had just returned from Europe, where he watched their armies drill and fight. He applied those same techniques to his armies….
And by the close of 1623, the entire country was rebel-free. Despite more than sixteen more revolts taking place during the last two years and none of the revolts succeeding, Isma’il Hussain managed to convince a number of Egyptians that he should be the true King. In the battle of Alexandria, he was proved to be no different.
On April 15, 1625, Hussain II saw that the whole realm was at peace, and changed that by finally declaring war upon the Armenians. In protest, a pretender arose in Beirut, Persian nationalists in Hormuz and particularists in Diamientia, Egypt and Al Karak. Syria and Yemen also joined in on the side of the Armenians.
The Egyptian Army faced off against the pretender army of Hisham Hussain in Beirut.
The army of Iraq annihilated the Armenian army and began their siege.
But yet, of course, more revolts popped up in Persia.
On July 14, 1625 the cities of Armenia and Badiyat Ash Sham fell to the Jalayirids and Armenians, respectively.
Husain sent a messenger to the Armenian King to prepare the throne room for his arrival.
By 1626, the war was nearly completed. Yemen was granted rule over their lands for as long as it pleased Husain and Syria was to surrender her claims to any Jalayirid land.
On December 25, 1626, Husain gathered together the leaders of all of the tribal leaders who had stood against him. He asked them, “Who can stand against Allah and win?” They replied, “No one” “Who here has stood against my rule and succeeded?” None spoke. “Has anyone ever stood against my father and won? Or his father? Is my family then not ruling with the favor of Allah? Who then can stand against us? As Allah is lord of all, I am lord of this realm. You are like my angels, acting in my will and nothing else.”
The reaction of the further edges of the Kingdom were… less than enthusiastic
