It is thought that Ismaïl would have had to copulate with an average of 4.8 women per day for 40 years to achieve that number of children!!!

Moulay Ismaïl Ibn Sharif was the second ruler of the Moroccan Alaouite dynasty. Like others of the dynasty, Ismaïl claimed to be a descendant of Muhammad through his roots to Hassan ibn Ali.

He is also known in his native country as the “Warrior King”. He ruled from 1672 to 1727.
