Note: 'Divehini' rather than Maldivian will be used as the demonym (for the people, not necessarily the archipelago itself) for all posts.
The Maldives Sultanate is a Bahmani vassal in the Indian Ocean.
A New Era
During the general panic at the start of the Great Eastern War, the Maldives agreed to become a Bahmani vassal in exchange for protection.
The Maldives is a Bahmani vassal, but under close supervision, in many ways more like an autonomous province.
Only those that differ from the Bahmanis are listed.
- Bahmani Sultanate:
- None de jure, de facto, same as the Bahmanis.
- Oman, Mogadishu and Bengal: Trading partners.
- Most other Muslim States
