The Mashriq, as the nation is often called, also controlled Iritriya, and had influence over al-Sumal, after helping establish that nation in the early 1400s. The Sultanate was also in a Personal Union with the Hafsid Sultanate of Tunisia at its pre-collapse peak. Ahmed-ad-Din Yusuf, was the last Grand Sultan of the Mashriq.
