The Battle of Ridaniya (Arabic: معركة الريدانية‎) was fought on January 22, 1517 in Egypt. The Ottoman Turkish forces of Selim I defeated the Mamluk forces under Al-Ashraf Tuman bay II. The Turks marched into Cairo, and the severed head of Tuman Bey II, Egypt’s last Mamluk Sultan, was hung over an entrance gate in the Al Ghourieh quarter of Cairo. [1]
