Prince Mohamed Aly (1875-1955)
Brother of the Khedive Abbas Pasha Hilmi II who ruled Egypt at the turn of the century, Prince Mohamed Aly established a celebrated stud in Cairo using stock exported from the desert by earlier generations of his powerful family. Descriptions of his program are found in the journals of his friend, Lady Anne Blunt, as well as in his own book, Breeding of Pure Bred Arab Horses, Vol. I (1935). In the second volume of this publication, he presents English translations of some of the original pedigree books he inherited concerning the stud of his great grandfather Viceroy Abbas Pasha I.
