1 The Sultan of Pyrard's time. If the term of his reign is correct,
his accession is antedated some eight years.
2 `ilie date here is wrong by about eight years. Ibrahim was killed
in February 1607. It is somewhat difficult to explain from Pyrard's
narrative who this No. 66 was, for the traveller states, on reports which
reached him at Goa, that after the Bengal invasion four chiefs struggled
for the throne, and that their pretensions were at length suppressed
by Ali Raja of Cannanor, who placed Ranabade'ri Takuru, otherwise
called Mi~filafurhi Rasgefanu, on the throne as his vassal (v. s.~ vol. i, pp.
320-1). But according to Mr. Bell's information the Maldivian archives
do not acknowledge that this prince ever ruled the Maldives as a whole,
and, accordingly, he does not appear in this list. It would seem pro-
bable, therefore, that this No. 66 was the son of the chief called by
Pyrard Pammedery Calogue (vol. ~, p. 255), which ~ was a distin-
guished person in Pyrard's time, and very friendly towards him.
3 Described as the son of a daughter (Amin~) of a daughter
(Maryam) of `All, the elder brother of Muhammad (No. 64).
This king, like No. 55, was an Arab, of Ilainavi in Yemen.
~ His date of accession is probably 1704, as he died late in 1721.,
having reigned seventeen years.
