Fatima bint Ali Qorat (Arabic: فاطمة بنت علي القورات) was a leading figure in the Republic of Mecca and the first Chancellor of the Islamic Republic. She presided over the signing of the republic's Constitution and was elected to the Chancellor position before leaving government in 1505 after her first term was completed. She is regarded as one of the most important person to the history of Modern Republics and Islamic Republicanism.

Early Life

Fatima was born in the village of Hudabiyah 20 miles west of Medina Alrasul under the Sharifate of Medina, which was a tributary state to the Kashildun Caliphate. Her parents are thought to have been lower middle class bakers in the village and sent her off to a Madrasa in Mecca at the age of 12. She studied there for two years getting an education in Arabic before moving back at 14. Some described her as a very quiet person unless aggravated. She became disgruntled with the political situation in the region in the years leading up to the start of the Blue Flag Revolution. It is thought she took training for defense by her father who may have served in the Sharifate's army.

Republic of Mecca

Upon declaration of the State of Cordoba she, at age 17, moved to Mecca and found her way into the resistance forming there under Yaqub el-Rahim. Due to her knowledge of Arabic she ranked up becoming on of 10 top generals. In February of 1495 the Republic of Mecca was declared and the city of Mecca was taken over. She primarily served in region she was from between Medina Alrasul and Mecca most notably in 1496 during the battle of her childhood village, Hudabiyah.
