Abstract

This article deals with the economic impact of the public order violations and riots of the Julban during the half-century before the fall of the Mamluk sultanate. This group in their own way disrupted the normal flow of domestic trade and commerce. They terrorised, intimidated and caused losses for those involved in trade and commercial affairs. Thus, the main aim of this article is to discuss the factors leading to the havoc caused by the Julban, and the extent of the economic impact during that time. This article finds that among the reasons for the Julban revolt are factional ambitions and the regime's failure to meet their demands. There was also the government's increasing reluctance to vigorously prosecute such behaviour. The chaos created by the Julban, however, did not lead to an absolute decline of the economy. Rather, they distracted the Maml k authorities from more productive activities and placed increasingly onerous financial demands on the government treasury.
