Ali Bey al-Kabir (1728-1773)
Mamluk Campaigns in Egypt and Syria during the times of Ali Bey and Abu Dhahab (1770-1775)

Ali Bey al-Kabir (Arabic: علي بك الكبير ‎{{#invoke:Category handler|main}}) (1728 – 8 May 1773) was a Mamluk leader of Egypt from 1768 to 1769, 1772, or 1773. Originally a Mamluk soldier, he rose to prominence in 1768 when he rebelled against his Ottoman rulers, making the Egypt Eyalet of the Osman Empire independent for a short time. His rule ended following the insubordination of his most trusted general, Abu al-Dahab, which led to Ali Bey's exile then death outside the walls of Cairo.
