The Sultanate of Zayiyr (Arabic: عمفشىشفث خب ~شغهغق) was a nation in the Sub-Saharan region of Africa, bordering the Kingdom of Ndongo. Originally the Kingdom of Kongo, the expansion of Islamic presence by the Abbasid Caliphate in the region has caused for citizens and governments to adopt Islamic names and cultures.

In 1824, after the Franco-Zayiyr War, the Sultanate was colonized by the Kingdom of France.
