A couple blocks from the Casdagli palace, in the Garden City district of Cairo, lies the palace of Princess Nematullah Kamal El Dine, wife of Prince Kemal El Dine Hussein, and daughter of the Khedive Tewfik. The palace, restored and renamed Qasr al-Tahrir (Liberation Palace) but amputated of its garden which became part of the now-famous Tahrir square, now belong to the Egyptian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

  1. Bottom line: the Casdagli family did not only purchase horses from Egyptian royals, they were also their neighbors.

  2. Point made!

  3. I discovered your most excellent blog while researching Prince Kemal el-Din. I have read though many of the related articles about al Khamsa and the rabbit hole deepens. My next thread of research involves a certain grey mare, Australian Light Horsemen and Damascus. I wonder if you would care to discuss this I would appreciate your thoughts.
