Yahya, Almohad Caliph
At the death of Abdallah al-Adil, he was supported by the sheikhs of Marrakech, but two years later he was turned down by another pretender, Abu al-Ala' Idris. At the latter's death in 1232, Yahya renewed his pretenses, but Abd al-Wahid II was preferred to him. He was anyway able to keep Marrakech until his death in 1236, after which the Almohad territories were again united under Abd-al Wahid.
