One of Nasser's more historic changes he enacted was land reform. This took the form of placing limits on land ownership in terms of feddans, nationalization of large amounts of land, and the issuance of bonds to pay back owners who had their land confiscated.

Muhammad Ali of Egypt had broken the Ottoman power hold on Egypt in 1805. But he himself was from the Ottoman empire. So it makes sense to believe that the dynasty he established was of Ottoman descent.
Was the inequality in the 1950s in Egypt the legacy of the Ottoman Empire? Did Nasser's reform end the power of an aristocracy descended from the Ottoman empire?
