==Biography==
Muhammad al-Badr was born in 1926 as oldest son of [[Ahmad bin Yahya]], later imam of the [[Zaiddiyah|Zaydis]] and king of [[North Yemen]]. In 1944 he moved to Taizz in the south of the country, where [[Ahmad bin Yahya|his father]] had already been the Imam's deputy for several years, to continue his education. Soon after the assassination of [[Yahya Muhammad Hamid ed-Din|Imam Yahya]] in February 1948 plotted by [[Sayyid Abdullah al-Wazir]], al-Badr arrived in Sana'a, the capital, but apparently only gave tacit support to the new regime. Meanwhile, [[Ahmad bin Yahya|Sayf al-Islam Ahmad]] had managed to get away from [[Taizz]] and made for [[Hajjah]], where he gathered the tribes around him, proclaimed himself Imam with the title of al-Nasir and within a month of the assassination had easily regained control of Sana'a and executed the principal perpetrators of the rebellion.

Sayf al-Islam al-Badr (as Muhammad now became), not yet 20, was clearly able to patch up speedily any misunderstandings with his father, for in late 1949 he was appointed his deputy over [[Hodeida]], the important port on the Red Sea. He was also made Minister of the Interior.
