The Saadi Sultanate[2] (Arabic: السلطنة السعدية) was a country in Africa. It was located in present-day Morocco and parts of West Africa in the 16th and 17th centuries. The Sultanate was led by the Saadi dynasty[2][3] (Arabic: السعديون, romanized: as-saʿdiyyūn), an Arab[4] Moroccan Sharifian dynasty.[5][6]
