Deli Sultanate

Deli is a 1,820 km² state in east Sumatra founded in 1630. A tributary kingdom from 1630 until 1814, the state became a sultanate in 1814 when acquiring independence from Sultanate of Siak.

The ruler of Aceh converted to Islam in the mid-15th century.[1] The Sultanate of Aceh was founded by Ali Mughayat Syah, who began campaigns to extend his control over northern Sumatra in 1520.[2] The sultan Iskandar Muda expanded Aceh by conquest. In 1612 Deli was militarily defeated and annexed. Dutch intervention in 1861, which resulted in the contract with the Netherlands East Indies the following year, helped to recognise Deli's independence from Aceh and Siak.

This area is now a part of Indonesia.
