The Marinid Sultanate was a Berber empire from the mid-13th to the 15th century in modern Morocco and other parts of North Africa. It was named after the Banu Marin (Arabic: بنو مرين, Berber: Ayt Mrin[4]), a Zenata Berber tribe.[1][5] The sultanate was ruled by the Marinid dynasty (Arabic: المرينيون al-marīniyyūn), founded by Abd al-Haqq I.[1][6]
