Yazid I - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (886 words)
Yazid was first opposed by the grandson of Muhammad, Husayn bin Ali, the son of the assassinated former caliph Ali ibn Abi Talib.
Some Sunni authorities have claimed that Husayn opposed Yazid's ascension to the Caliphate but did not actively revolt against him, and that Husayn's killing was ordered not by Yazid but by the Umayyad governor of Iraq Ubaidallah ibn Ziyad.
Historians who judge Yazid as an administrator rather than a religious figure take a kinder view of the man. Yazid energetically tried to continue his father's policies and retained many of the men who served him.
