Dawud Pasha of Baghdad
Dawūd Pasha (Arabic: داود باشا Dāwūd Bashā; Georgian: დაუდ ფაშა; Turkish: Davud Pasha; died 1851) was the last Mamluk ruler of Iraq, from 1816 to 1831. Iraq at this period was nominally part of the Ottoman Empire but in practice largely autonomous.
Dawud Pasha established the first newspaper of Iraq, Journal Iraq, in Baghdad in 1816. In 1830, the Ottoman Sultan Mahmud II decreed Dawud Pasha's dismissal, which was enforced the following year by an army under Ali Ridha Pasha, who reimposed direct Ottoman rule on Iraq.
