مرحبًا

I saw a book called سير أعلام النبلاء, and I think it means "the biographies of the distinguished, exalted men", but shouldn't it have been سير الأعلام النبلاء?

عَلَم means "a distinguished, outstanding man", and its plural is أَعْلام.
سيرة means "biography", and its plural is سِيَر.
نَبِيْل means "exalted", and its plural is نُبَلاء.

شكرًا جزيلاً
