AMEER (امير, عمير).  Variant spelling of Arabic Amīr, "commander, prince," or, Āmir, "cultivated; abundant, rich." 

... When he "received the visit of death," at Salli, and was buried with his father and his grandfather at Tinmalalt, his subjects were so loth to believe it, that he was declared to have departed on a pilgrimage to Mekka from which he never returned.  A century later a tomb was shown with pride near the village of Mijdal in Coelo-Syria as that of "Ameer Yakub of the Maghrib," but "this," remarks El Makkari, on the authority of an earlier writer, "is one of the tales of the vulgar, who were in love with their king." (The Moorish Empire, Meakin, 1899)
