Haushabi or Hawshabi ( Arabic: الحوشبي or al-Ḥawshabī Arabic: الحواشب ), or the al-Ḥawāshab Haushabi Sultanate ( Arabic: سلطنة الحواشب ), was a state in the British Salṭanat al-Ḥawāshab Aden Protectorate. Its capital was Musaymir. The area is now part of the Republic of Yemen.
History [ edit ]
Haushabi was established in the eighteenth century.
Its leader signed an agreement with the British already in 1839, but it was not until 1895 that a formal [1 ] protection agreement with Great Britain was signed. Subsequently it became part of the British Aden Protectorate. The state later joined the Federation of Arab Emirates of the South, and its successor, the Federation of South Arabia.
The last sultan, Faisal bin Surur Al Haushabi, was deposed and his state was abolished in 1967 upon the founding of the
People's Republic of South Yemen.
The rulers of Haushabi bore the title
Sultan al-Saltana al-Hawshabiyya. [2 ]
