Caption: Circassian emir from Syria, 19th century. The Circassians are a people that inhabit the north-eastern shores of the Black Sea, forming part of the north-western Caucasus. They refer to themselves as the Adyghe. They mostly converted to Islam in the 17th century. The Circassian diaspora of the 16th and 17th centuries led to Circassians settling in other countries, such as Egypt and, in the case of this emir (nobleman), Syria. Artwork published in 1861.
