The history of Bahri dynasty (648-792 A.H/ 1250-1390 A.D) goes back to the founder Sultan As-Saleh Nagm Ad-Din Ayyub, who brought the Mamluks to Ar-Rawda Island and built them a citadel where they settled in 638 A.H.

This period had two ruling dynasties; Az-Zahir Beybars Al-Bundukdari dynasty, who ruled Egypt for 17 year, he is considered to be the real founder of Bahri dynasty as he made many governmental changes, and one of his most important achievements was the revival of the Abbasid Caliphate setting Cairo as seat of government in 658 A.H. 

 And Al-Mansour Qalawun dynasty as the reign of An-Nasir Mohammad Ibn Qalawun which was about half a century is considered the most glorious one of the Mamluks reigns, and after him many rulers came to Egypt most of them was young, so they were controlled by the commanders (Atabegs), and that statue went on till the Emir Barqouq, the founder of Burji Dynasty/ Circassian Mameluke Dynasty appeared.
