Sultanate of Shawa

Described as a precursor to Ifat, Shawa was actually founded around the same time. After Dilmarrah (the son in law of Ali ibn Umar Walasma) took refuge in the court of Yekuno Amlak and (according to some accounts) converted to Christianity, Ifat swept in and took over Shawa, installing Abdallah as Sultan, and then formally annexing Shawa into Ifat in 1280. Dilmarrah was killed in 1283.

It is unclear (at least to me) what genealogical relationship the earlier Sultans have to each other, or with Sultan Ganah. It is also unclear whether Harba'ir, who is listed in the Shawa chronicle, is a sultan of Shawa. Malasma'i, nearly a century later, begins the actual list of Sultans.
