Ash-Shams

From IBWiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Taliiq ibn Ash-Shams (طليق ابن الشمس) is the first lugal (head of state) of the Ecotopic Arab Republic of Al-Basra. Like many of his fellow revolutionaries, Taliiq ibn Ash-Shams adopted a new name during the struggle for Al-Basra's independence from ‘Iraaq - his means "Free, son of the Sun", and is an excellent example of the Nature- and Ecotopic-themed names adopted by many Basris. Others chose names based on ancient Sumerian history and mythology, or names of religio-historical figures important to Shi‘ite Islam.
