Abstract: The Banū Zuhrā/Zuhrāwī's of Aleppo were part of the circle of notable families in 17th and early 18th century Ottoman Aleppo. They were leaders of the local Ashraf and were engaged in a number of economic ventures in and outside the city, but gradually lost power to more aggressive competitors in the course of the 18th century. They demise was due mainly to the rapid and almost complete extinction of the male line of the family, leaving the female members to fend for themselves in the hard, and ultimately ill-fated struggle to maintain control of the family's properties and prestige. The documents produced in our paper (from the archives of the Ottoman courts)aim to provide further information on the history of this family and of Ottoman Aleppo in general.
