Grand Caliph was the Midani title for the ruler of all of enlightened Zakhara.[1][2]

The Grand Caliph led the Land of Fate in matters of state as well as faith from his seat, the grand palace in the capital city of Huzuz. The extent of his influence on the more distant parts of his realm, however, often remained in doubt.[1]


The Grand Caliph in 1367 DR[note 1] was Khalil al-Assad al-Zahir, the 18th wearer of the title and direct descendant of the first Grand Caliph, an al-Badia boy who found the teachings of the Loregiver and united all lands of Zakhara under the banner of Enlightenment more than 500 years earlier.[1][3]
