The Empire of Aladinus, or Allad'inuz, was founded in the year 1239 by the great Abubakar Oluwaseyi (1211-1255 C.E.). Originally a small tribal empire, the kingdom grew at an alarming rate after Abubakar was made chieftain. Unlike other Mali Chieftains, Abukabar was resourceful, militaristic, and aggressive, always hungry for more land. Abukabar's conquests expanded the Mali Empire from its former size of 38,610 sq mi to 3.629 million sq mi. Stretching from the Congolese jungle to the Mediterranean, Abukabar's Empire was one of the world's reigning superpowers at the time.
Spanish Catholic scholars called this kingdom, Aladinus, which comes from the Ancient Moorish phrase "Blessed by the Desert". Throughout their conquests, the Aladinese made many foes, such as the Egyptian Sultanate, which they ended up conquering in 1242. The Christian Empire viewed this southern faction as a threat, and waged war upon them in the year 1249. the war was long and vicious. in the process, the island of Sicily was utterly destroyed by Aladinese raiders, and southern Spain was transformed into a war torn battlefield. Finally, Emperor Louis VII of France launched a massive invasion of approximately 67,000 soldiers across the Strait of Gibraltar, and after an exhausting march inland, they reached the Aladinese capital of Timbuktu. They besieged it for two and a half months before an Aladinese counterattack was attempted, but it was too late, Timbuktu was razed and burned to the ground, its inhabitants slaughtered, and Abukabar was sent to Toledo, Spain to be executed. The Empire of Aladinus was renamed South Christendom, and Timbuktu was never rebuilt.
