  • Arabic: ‘’Amir’’ – originally the title of the descendants of the Prophet Muhammad via his daughter Fatima, and later as a general title for chiefs and nobles roughly equivalent to ‘prince’.

After Islam was rolled back in North Afriqa by Roman Catholicism and then by the Hussites the usage was retained as a title in the Christian Emirate of Libya and then the Emirate of Carthage.
