Auda is missing :(
I am named after Auda abu Tayi, (1874? - 1924). He was the leader (shaikh) of a section of the Howeitat or tribe of Bedouin Arabs at the time of the Great Arab Revolt during the First World War. The Howeitat lived in what is now Jordan.
Auda was a significant figure in the Arab Revolt; outside Jordan he is mainly known through his portrayal in British Col. T. E. Lawrence's account Seven Pillars of Wisdom, and from the partly fictionalized depiction of him in David Lean's film Lawrence of Arabia.
Auda abu Tayi was considered by many to the real hero of the Arab Revolt. Lawrence would describe him as "the greatest fighting man in northern Arabia".
Auda had an impressive lineage. He could trace his roots back through many generations of great desert Howeitat warriors of the Arabian Peninsula. He epitomized everything noble, powerful and proud about the Bedouin.
Lawrence wrote of Auda:
He saw life as a saga; all the events in it were significant: all personages in contact with him heroic, his mind was stored with poems of old raids and epic tales of fights.
As was customary in the desert Auda was known for his hospitality and generosity which "kept him always poor, despite the profits of a hundred raids". He claimed he had been married 28 times and wounded more than a dozen times in action. Legend had it that he had killed 75 Arabs by his own hand; he didn't even bother to keep count of the Turks.
In battle Auda became a wild beast assuaged only after he had killed. He was hot-headed but always kept a smile on his face. Despite his fierce reputation he was described as modest, direct, honest, kind-hearted and warmly-loved.
