Abstract:The medieval kingdom of Alodia or calva, with its capital at Soba near the confluence of the Blue and White Niles, was the moat southerly of the three prominent Christian states of the riverain Sudan during the period between the decline of Meroe and the rise of the Funj kingdom of Sinnar. The kingdom had a historical significance out of all proportions to our knowledge about it. This article traces the fortunes of Alodia and raises potentially-fruitful questions regarding earlier periods in the history of the Sudan, Sections: the fall of Alodia - the land and the people of Fazughli - Fazughli, Ethiopia and Sinnar, 1500-1800 - Fazughli: the question of antecedents. Map, notes.
