The Imamate of Aussa also spelled Imamate of Awsa was a medieval imamate in present-day eastern Ethiopia. It was carved out of the Sultanate of Harar and the Adal Sultanate.

History

In 1647, the rulers of the Emirate of Harar broke away to form their own polity. The Imamate of Awsa was later destroyed by the local Mudaito Afar in 1672. Following the Awsa Imamate's demise, the Mudaito Afars founded their own kingdom, the Sultanate of Aussa.
