Lower Aulaqi

Lower Aulaqi (Arabic: العوالق السفلىʿAwlaqī al-Suflī), or the Lower Aulaqi Sultanate (Arabic: سلطنة العوالق السفلى Salṭanat al-ʿAwālaq al-Suflā), was a state in the Aden Protectorate, the Federation of Arab Emirates of the South, and its successor, the Federation of South Arabia. Its capital was Ahwar.


The Lower Aulaqi sultans separated from the Upper Aulaqi Sultanate in the 18th century (Upper Aulaqi Sheikhdom separated around the same time). In the late 19th century, the area came under British influence and eventually became a constituent of the Aden Protectorate. The sultanate joined the Federation of Arab Emirates of the South in February 1960 and the Federation of South Arabia in January 1963. It was abolished in 1967 and the last sultan, Nasir ibn Aidrus Al Awlaqi along with Prince Ali Abdullah the Governor, were imprisoned upon the founding of the People's Republic of South Yemen. The area is now part of the Republic of Yemen.
