After numerous civil wars began to break out across the caliphate, according to the Byzantine chronicler Theophanes the Confessor, a wizard advised Yazid that he would reign for forty years, if he opposed Christian icons.

Islamic, Umayyad, Hisham, 105 - 125 H, 724 - 743 A.D.
Click for a larger photo Hisham ibn Abd al-Malik inherited an empire beset with problems but his long rule was effective. He was conscientious in administering finances, was a great patron of the arts, encouraged education by building schools, and oversaw the translation of numerous literary and scientific masterpieces into Arabic. He lived simply, wearing the same green cloak he had before becoming caliph and dwelling in the desert to avoid plague. His governor in Spain advanced a large army into France marking the limit of Arabic conquest in Western Europe, a wave halted by a crushing defeat to Charles Martel at the Battle of Tours. Almost annual raids against the Byzantines continued to gain ground. In North Africa, the Berbers revolted, at first successfully, but Umayyad rule was reestablished. Despite Hisham's successes, the Abbasids continued to gain power; however, they were not yet strong enough to make major gains.
