Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Mahra Sultanate of Qishn and Socotra (Sal anat Mahrah f Qishn wa Suqu rah) or sometimes the Mahra Sultanate of Ghayda and Socotra (Sal anat Mahrah f -l Ghay ' wa Suqu rah) was a sultanate that included both the historical region of Mahra and the Indian Ocean island of Socotra in what is now eastern Yemen. It was ruled by the Banu Afrar dynasty and is sometimes called Mahra State in English. The capitals of the Mahra Sultanate were Qishn in Mahra and Tamrida (Hadibu) on Socotra. During 1886, the sultanate became a British protectorate and later became a part of the Aden Protectorate. In the 1960s, Mahra declined to join the Federation of South Arabia but remained under British protection as part of the Protectorate of South Arabia.show more
