On these issues, see especially Meloy (2010a); Id. (2005); Id. (2003a); Wing (2014). For southeast Anatolia, see Wing (2015); Adriaenssens & Van Steenbergen (2016). contexts 23 would actually turn out to be the last sultan in history to achieve this personal participation and leadership during his tenure. As with al-Nāṣir Muḥammad’s pilgrimages before, for Qāytbāy’s reign, too, this unusual royal ḥaǧǧ served as an impressive illustration of the accomplished nature of his long-lasting power and authority, to contemporary rivals for regional supremacy such as the Turkman leader of Tabriz, to ambitious partners such as the Sharif of Mecca, and to modern observers.

In that year, the leading royal spouse herself again made the pilgrimage, in splendid pomp and circumstance, and every successful sultan thereafter sent his wife, occasionally accompanied by sons and other members of his family, at least once on pilgrimage to Mecca. In some of these cases of spousal pilgrimage, the link with regional rivalry and competition for supremacy was obvious. In other cases, more local concerns for legitimacy and for the acceptance of the sultan’s power, authority, and policies were in play.

But there were also wider privileges of local sovereignty involved, such as the invocation of the sultan’s name at the Friday sermon (ḫuṭbah) in the Sanctuary Mosque and the minting of Meccan coins in the sultan’s name (sikkah). At the same time, sultans in Cairo continued to very proudly use the title of ‘Servant of the two Sacred Places’ (Ḫādim al-ḥaramayn al-šarīfayn), confirming their role as the main patron and protector of Mecca and Medina and of their sanctuaries (the Ḥarām Mosque with the Kaʿbah and the Prophet’s Mosque with Muḥammad’s grave, respectively).
