Following on from my recent question about the Madhi of Sudan, can anyone point me in the right direction as to background information about Abdullah al-Taashi, the Khalifa? Again, I am looking for information about him personally, his early life and up to his meeting with Muhammed Ahmed.
Also, does anyone know if a photograph of Abdullah al-Taashi exists, and if so where? If not, are there any known Victorian period illustrations of him that appeared in newspapers or similar?
Thanks in advance.
