18" x 24" print of the original painting of Idris Alooma Sultan of Bornu. 1580 - 1617. For two centuries before Idris Alooma became Mai (sultan) of Bornu, Kanem was a separate land whose people had been driven out by their nomadic cousins, the Bulala.  It took one of Africa's most extraordinary rulers to reunite the two kingdoms.  He replaced tribal law with Moslem law, and early in his reign, he made a pilgrimage to Mecca.  Copyright B & B Productions
