Mu'awiya rarely commanded, but was skilful in operating through the more acceptable processes of persuasion and through his personal ability and prestige. In the provinces his authority was exercised through nominated governors, the most important of whom was the bastard Ziyad, known as "Ziyad, the Son of his Father", the governor of Iraq, the most turbulent and difficult of the provinces, and of the East.
