The achievements of my ancestors is completely unparalleled.

They colonised the whole the mudug and had sultanates from Qaw near Bosaso down to Xarardheere and Beledweyne colonising the local tribes in the process. :dead:

Not to mention Boqor Kenaadid created Galkacyo from absolutely nothing

Amazing.

How is it a sultanate when it says, that it has clear Italian administration from the years 1890 to 1925? I don't understand.

The sultanates of Majerten and Hobyo had signed treaties with the Italians in the 1880s. The Italians did not interfere in their governance until 1925 when they invaded Migurtinia. The conflict lasted for about 2 years and the Italians defeated the sultanates in 1927 using Eritrean troops and Somali auxiliaries.

At some point in the 1920s two men who were uncle and nephew ruled from Ceel Buur to Caluula. Absolutely unprecedented in Somali history.

The map shows when each region became Italian administered .i.e. colonised. Mogadishu was colonised in 1890, and the two sultanates in 1925. North eastern parts of Somalia were the last regions to be colonised and by default the regions that were colonised for the shortest period.

So before the treaties with the Italians, I would like to know how long this sultanate was ruling for, I am genuinely curious.

Yusuf Kenadid came to Hobyo in 1884 and it became an Italian protectorate in 1889.

This is from a primary British source published in 1907

Their control would have extended to Benaadir and the Shabelle river had the Italians not entered the region. Revenue would have increased substantially, and the Hobyo Sultanate would have been able to fund a relatively large standing army armed with modern rifles. Possibilities would have been endless from there. When you think of it, the Abyssinian's got really lucky.
 
My ancestors invaded Hobyo, defeated the local hawiye clans and established the Hobyo Sultanate the 1800s. Below is the Hobyo Fort built by MJ merchants

You liar. It wasn't "Hawiye" since most of them were part of Hiraab Imamate but after Hiraab Imamate was going through civil war you called Yemeni (hadramout) soldiers to conquer a small section of Hiraab Imamate land since the rest of Hiraab fought back hard. You only fight a state that is weakened and you call foreigners to fight for you just like 1983 and still lost kkk. Here:https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=1982_Ethiopian–Somali_Border_War&oldid=834036333

Majerteen are the weakest and most cucked Somalis ever. They can't fight other Somalis themselves so they call forigners to fight behalf for them and when the foreigners win they claim that legacy. Absolutely embarressing!

You tried the same sh*t with Somaliland with other Somali clans and still got karbashed. :cryinglaughsmiley:

These are Yemenis you're talking about?

The picture you're showing is them signing treaties to their Italian masters in Mogadishu. Nice try.:cryinglaughsmiley:



Plus, Hobyo Sultanate was a joint coalition of Omar Mahamood section of Majerteen (Dafarood) and Habar Gidir a sub sub clan of Hawiye. It was no different of Somaliland (Isaaq) ruling your Harti brothers and you tried liberating them but they karbash you very hard.

And yes, Yemenis were the ones who did the fighting not the weakling Majerteens. They were able to conquer a small section of Hiraab Imamate land since Hiraab Imamate was in a war but were still able to resist them and Hiraab Imamate was still strong and standing.

"By the late 19th century, the imamate began to decline. Faced with internal problems, the imamate also faced challenges from the imperialist forces as well as the Zanzibari sultan, and even the Portuguese in the earlier years. By then, a young ambitious rebel of the Majeerteen managed to invade Hobyo with an army of Yemeni musketeers and declared himself the sultan of Hobyo. After few years, the Sultan was disposed and overthrown by a former commander of the Imamate named Guuleed Faarax Jeex who put Hobyo back into the hands of the Imamate for a short period of time .

Soon afterwards, the entire region was snapped up by the fascists Italians and it led to the birth of a Modern Somalia. However, the Hiraab hereditary leadership has remained intact up to this day and enjoys a dominant influence in national Somali affairs."


I can post which Emirs that controlled Dhuusamareeb, El Bur, Harardheere and Hobyo. You had no upperhand against the Habar Gidir.
