From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Abu Mohammed Abdallah al-Adil (Arabic: عبد الله‎) was selected as caliph of Morocco following the 1223 strangulation of the previous Almohad caliph, Abdul-Wahid I. Abdullah's vizier was Abû Zayd Abî Muhammad ben Abî Hafs, who had previously served his uncle, Muhammad an-Nasir, and his cousin,Yusuf II, as governor of Ifriqiya.

During Abdullah's reign, there were two pretenders to the Moroccan throne: his brother Abu al-Ila Idris al-Mamun, supported by Ferdinand III of Castile, and another brother, Yahyâ al-Mu`tasim, supported by the sheikhs of Marrakesh.

In 1227, Abdullah was drowned in a palace bathtub and was succeeded by his son Yahya.
