Haushabi

Haushabi ( _ar. الحوشبي [Unicode|al-Ḥawshabī] or _ar. الحواشب [Unicode|al-Ḥawāshab] ), or the Haushabi Sultanate ( _ar. سلطنة الحواشب [Unicode|Salṭanat al-Ḥawāshab] ), was one of the original "Nine Cantons" that signed protection argreements with Great Britain in the late 19th century and became part of the British Aden Protectorate. The state later joined the Federation of Arab Emirates of the South, and its successor, the Federation of South Arabia. Its capital was Musaymir. Its last sultan, Faisal bin Surur Al Haushabi, was deposed and his state was abolished in 1967 upon the founding of the People's Republic of South Yemen and the area is now part of the Republic of Yemen.
