1889 Threat to Queen Victoria by El Mahdi

Updated: Jan 25


El Mahdi writes a 2nd letter advising Queen Victoria to "embrace the true faith" and also to withdraw her forces from Egypt, "lest they be destroyed by us, with all unbelievers and infidels who remain disobedient to our mandate".

This letter was far less insulting than Mahdi's letter to the Khedive, in which he was given his "last chance".

Both letters were returned to Mahdi.
