|Abu Faris Abd al-Aziz II|
Abu Faris Abd al-Aziz II (reigned 1394–1434) was an Hafsid Caliph of Ifriqiya. He proceeded to further consolidate the kingdom after his father Abu al-Abbas Ahmad II had restored its integrity. A strong monarch and an orthodox Muslim he abolished some taxes he deemed incompatible with the teachings of Qur'an, using instead privateer actions against Christian shipping as a way to raise state income. He intervened against his western neighbors, the Abdalwadid dynasty of the Kingdom of Tlemcen, and in Andalusia as well.
