Prince Tarabay died in the month of Muharram in 917 A.H. Ibn Iyas mentions this in Badaa’Al-Zohour.
(And the sultan came down and prayed over him in the explanation for the believer, and penance was given before him and looted from his door, and his wife knocked on him with tires in mourning.
He was strict, ruthless, severely valiant and excessively cruel, and he committed injustices so long as they did not occur from other princes, and he died at the age of seventy.
