Biography

Yusuf was the son of the Somali Sultan Mahamud Ibrahim, and the grandson of Ibrahim Adeer. His rule marked the start of the golden age of the Geledi.

Sultan Yusuf's army emerged victorious during the Bardheere Jihad, which restored stability in the region and revitalized the East African ivory trade. For his exploits, he received presents from and had cordial relations with the rulers of neighbouring and distant kingdoms alike, such as the Omani, Witu and Yemeni sultanates.
