Habsan is a OPM at the Konkan coast of Western India that does not exist at 1444 game start. From 1570 to 1633 Habsan exists as vassal of Ahmednagar and subsequently to 1735 as vassal of the Mughals. The primary culture is Amhara of the Cushitic culture group - an African culture.


After 1500 Habsan may arise by the following event.[1]


 The Siddi state of Habsan

Versions seems to diverge on exactly how it happened, some say they came in the dark, some that they had hid in big boxes disguised as gifts, but somehow the commander of one of our coastal forts have managed to lose control of both his island fort and the entire region under his control at the same time. The perpetrators are a group of Siddis, former slaves of Ethiopian origin that have become a quite common sight in the navies and armies of this region.\nThe leader of the Siddis has sent an emissary to our court today, asking that we allow them to stay in control of the fort that they have taken in return for their loyal service to our state.

Immediate effects
A random province of this country in Konkan or Kanara:

If this province is Chaul (2089),

  • then it is renamed to ‘Janjira’ (with province capital ‘Janjira’).


  • changes its   primary culture to Amhara.
  • gets a new ruler with a strong claim from the “Siddhi” dynasty.

Very well.


  • becomes a   march of this country.
AI will always choose this option.
These rebels must be dealt with!


  • declares a war on this country with the  Independence’ casus belli.
AI will never choose this option.
