The Mamluke Sultanate refers to a period of Egyptian history where two sequential dynasties ruled the areas of Egypt, Arabia and Syria from 1253 until 1412. Both of these dynasties, as well as the political infrastructure, were controled by the Mamluke Turkish population of Egypt who were originally a slave class in the nation. After Tamerlane forced the nation into anarchy in the 1390s, it eventully came under the control of the religious elite leading to the restoration of the Abbasid Caliphate.
