Daude Daud was the head of the Yezidi tribe of Mehrkan in Shangal. The exact date of his birth is not known. From 1935 to 1941, he raised a series of Yezidi uprisings in the former mandated Mesopotamia, which became the sovereign state of Iraq.
In September 1929, Great Britain declared its readiness to recommend the Kingdom of Iraq for membership in the League of Nations. In order to consolidate the political and military-strategic interests of Great Britain in Iraq, the Anglo-Iraqi alliance treaty was signed on June 30, 1930 for a period of 25 years. It provided for the automatic termination of the mandate from the moment of Iraq's admission to the League of Nations and the proclamation of the country as a sovereign independent State.
On October 3, 1932, Iraq became a member of the League of Nations, which terminated the British mandate in Mesopotamia. King Faisal stood at the head of the country. The promises made by the Iraqi Government to the Yezidis towards the end of the British colonial period were not kept, which worsened their situation.
