Abstract

<p>In most of the Abbassid sources, Yazīd II b. Abd al-Malik’s image is both that of a bad caliph, dedicating his time to illicit pleasures rather than to his duties, and that of a weeping lover, devastated by the sudden death of Habāba, his favourite <em>qayna</em>. This article traces so far as possible the twists and turns of these two discourses, the different phases of their development and the way they eventually precipitated into a legendary narrative subjected to the denigration by the Abbasids of their Umayyad predecessors. By doing so, it intermittently brings to light some fragments of a plausible reality and presents them with the mandatory reservations.</p>
