Aḍud ad-Dawlahʿ

▪ Būyid ruler

born 936
died 983

      greatest ruler (949–983) of the Iranian Būyid dynasty.

      Becoming ruler of Fārs province in southern Iran in 944, ʿAḍud ad-Dawlah did not actually reign on his own until almost a decade later. But by 979 his authority extended, through inheritance and conquest, over all southern Iran and most of what is now Iraq. He became famous for his public works, which included a dam still standing near Shīrāz, and he also consolidated the internal security and administrative order of the dynasty and patronized arts and letters. See also Būyid Dynasty.
