According to these same British archives, the image is of Mawlay Abdullah bin Mawlay Nasrallah bin Emir Mawlay Faraj Allah II bin Emir Nasr Allah I bin Emir Badr bin Emir Abdul Muttalib I bin Mawlay Khalf bin Mawlay Ali bin Muttalib bin Haydar bin King Muhsin bin Sayed Mohammad Al-Masha’sha’i, the initiator of the Ahwaz State Al-Masha’sha’i with Hawiza as its capital.

This Arab state managed to maintain its independence against the invasion attempts by the Ottomans.
