'The Fatimids, Fatimid Caliphate or al-Fatimiyyun is the Shia dynasty which ruled much of North Africa from January 5, 910 to 1171 AD. After about 1070 AD, Fatimid authority over the Levant coast and parts of Syria was challenged first by Turkic invasions, then by the Crusades, so that Fatimid territory shrunk until eventually, it consisted only of Egypt.'
