Islamic, Rasulid Imams of Yemen, al-Mujahid Sayf al din 'Ali, 721 - 764 AH, 1322 - 1363 A.D.
A local legend in Yemen states that Aden may be as old as human history itself. Some also believe that Cain and Abel are buried somewhere in the city. Persians formed the majority of Aden's population in the 10th century. From the 14th century, Aden was popular trading port attracting sailors and merchants from Egypt, Sindh, Gujarat, Africa and even China. In 1421, China's Ming dynasty emperor ordered his envoys to board sail from Sumatra to Aden. to convey an imperial edict with hats and robes to bestow on the king of Aden. This event was recorded in the book Yingyai Shenglan by Ma Huan who accompanied the imperial envoy. Aden was ruled by the Portuguese between 15131538 and 15471548. It was ruled by the Ottoman Empire between 15381547 and 15481645.
