Anwar Ayano Idris


The aim of this study is to reconstruct a history early history of the Hadiya Kingdom. With the rise of the Solomonic Dynasty in 1270, an epoch of military, political, and cultural expedition of the Christian kingdom to the south was usually mentioned. The political geography, early campaign of the Christian kingdom against Kingdom of Hadiya, its impacts on the kingdom of Hadiya and their reaction, and their alliance between other Muslim states were the focal points of this study. Hadiya was one of the seven Muslim states in Ethiopia and it was one of the strongest among them. However, due to several conflicts against Christian kingdom in the early thirteenth to seventeenth centuries they seem to have reduced their political power and territories as well as the numbers population became reduced. Therefore, to carefully understand their exact geographical location of them may be difficult. Instead of a fairly scattering of geographical situations with population densities varying according to their advantages of peace as well as natural resources great agglomeration of population had emerged, often centered on relatively difficult terrain and separated one another by considerable tracts of geographical setting. The methodology employed was qualitative one. The study was conducted based on reliable primary and secondary sources.
