Equestrian portrait of Muhammad Ali [1769? – 1849], pasha of Egypt after 1805. He scored great successes fighting for the Ottoman sultan in Greece until the British, French, and Russians combined to defeat his fleet at Navarino in 1827, leading to Greek independence. The sultan made the governorship of Egypt hereditary in Muhammad Ali's line and his family ruled until 1952.
