Abu al-Hasan as-Said al-Mutadid
|Predecessor||Abd al-Wahid II|
|Successor||Abu Hafs Umar al-Murtada|
Abu al-Hasan as-Said al-Mutadid (Arabic: الحسن المعتضد بالله السعيد بن المأمون; abū al-ḥasan al-mu`taḍid bi-llah as-sa`īd ben al-mā'mūn; died 1248) was an Almohad caliph who reigned in Morocco from 1242 until his death.
He succeeded his brother Abd al-Wahid II in a period in which the Almohads controlled only parts of Morocco. During his reign, the Hafsids of Tunis extended their rule to Algeria and Tlemcen, while the Marinids conquered Meknes. As-Said was able to obtain a contingent from the Marinids to fight the Hafsids, but was killed in an ambush.
