Does "she" in this sentence refer to the mother? That sounds really strange.. Thanks!
In 397/1006-07 Rostam tried with the help of his vizier to escape from the tutelage of his mother. But she escaped to the Kurdish Abū Najm Badr b. Ḥasanūya, who joined forces with Abū Ṭāher Šams-al-Dawla, who was holding Hamadān, and together they marched on Ray and put it under siege.
