Abu Hafs Umar al-Murtada
|Predecessor||Abu al-Hasan as-Said al-Mutadid|
During his time as caliph, the area of Morocco under Almohad control was reduced to the region around and including Marrakech. He was forced to pay tribute to the Marinids. He was ousted by his cousin Abu al-Ula al-Wathiq Idris with the help of Marinid ruler Abu Yusuf Yaqub ibn Abd Al-Haqq, with Idriss II then proclaiming himself as caliph.
