Oman - Saif bin SultanOman
The Sultanate of Muscat and Oman (Oman for short) was a 19th century power in the Indian ocean, ruling large swaths of land across East Africa through to southern Iran from their centre of power in the eastern Arabian peninsula. Under the leadership of Saif bin Sultan, Oman won a series of victories in the Indian Ocean and East African coast against the Portuguese, driving out the early colonisers from the region and securing it for several years, until finally succumbing to European invaders and increasing European influence within East Africa in the late 19th and early 20th century. This did little to damage the sultanate however, with the Omani homeland remaining relatively intact and continuing to this day within the Arabian peninsula.
