Battle of Shela 1810

[ 1810 ]

The East African ports of Pate and Mombasa were disastrously defeated, and their power was broken, by nearby Lamu. Pate's preeminence in the Lamu islands was destroyed, Mombasa's authority on the coast was diminished, and the way was open to Muscat's great intrusion into East African affairs. Lamu appealed to Oman for a garrison to assist it, to which Sayyid Sa'id of Muscat very soon responded.
