Abu Abdallah Mohammed II, Al-Mutawakkil, often simply Abdallah Mohammed was the oldest son of Abdallah al-Ghalib and became the sultan of Morocco after his father's death. Immediately after his accession to the throne he had one of his brothers executed and another imprisoned. His uncle Abu Marwan Abd al-Malik I, who was like Abdallah al-Ghalib a son of Mohammed ash-Sheikh, had already fled to the Ottoman Empire in Constantinople in 1574. Back in Ottoman Algeria, Al-Malik succeeded in organising his own army, consisting of Ottoman soldiers, and in 1576 he invaded Morocco conquered Fez from his nephew, in the Capture of Fez. The first battle was in al-Rukn in the lands of Banu waritin, near Fez. In a second battle near Sal� in Jandaq al-Rayhan, Abu Marwan Abd al-Malik I also defeated his nephew. A third battle, also won by Abu Marwan Abd al-Malik I, took place in Tarudante. Both Abu Marwan Abd al-Malik I and Abu Abdallah Mohammed II died two years later in the Battle of Alcazarquivir, in 1578. In that battle, Abu Abdallah Mohammed II fought his last battle against his uncle Abu Marwan Abd al-Malik I with the help of his Portuguese allies.
