The Al-Mansur dynasty (Arabic: سلالة المنصور), officially the State of Gandhara, was the reigning monarchy of Gandhara from 1878 until 1957, when the monarchy was overthrown and abolished as a result of the Gandhari Revolution. The dynasty was founded by Abbas al-Mansur in 1878, whose reign lasted until his death in 1903. He was succeeded by his son, Rahimullah al-Mansur. Mohamed al-Mansur, the son of Rahimullah and the grandson of Abbas, was the last emir of Gandhara.
