Al-Mu'azzam 'Isa Sharaf ad-Din (died 1227) was a Kurdish ruler, an Ayyubid Sultan who ruled Damascus from 1218 to 1227. The son of Sultan Al-Adil I and nephew of Saladin, founder of the dynasty, Al-Mu'azzam was installed by his father as governor of Damascus in 1200.[1] After his father's death in 1218, Al-Mu'azzam ruled the Ayyubid lands in Syria in his own name, down to his own death in 1227.[2] He was succeeded by his son, An-Nasir Dawud.
