Dhulbahante garaadship

Dhulbahante kingdom which ended with the 16th Dhulbahante king Diiriye Guure

The Dhulbahante garaadship was a kingdom from 1530 until 1899. Its successor state was Darwiish State. Diiriye Guure was the first Dhulbahante king to become king through being elected by the people. Diiriye Guure was also the first Dhulbahante monarch to be called sultan. By proclaiming himself Dhulbahante Sultan, Diiriye Guure reunited the Dhulbahante schism created by Ali Harran, also spelled Ali Xaram of the Maxamud Garad subclan, and Garaad Ali III around 7 decades earlier. Diiriye Guure was the first Dhulbahante king whose position was subordinate to someone else, namely the Sayid. Aar Dheel and Diiriye Guure are the only two people who gained the Dhulbahante throne despite not being in the line of succession.
