The Sultanate of Bengal was based in Bengal for much of the 14th, 15th and 16th centuries. Its imperial capital was one of the world's largest cities, which had a circle of vassal states, including Odisha in the southwest, Arakan in the southeast, and Tripura in the east. In 1494, the Bengal Sultanate reached the peak of its territorial growth with control over Kamrup and Kamata. The empire was known as one of the major trading nations of the medieval world. It was defeated by Suris and then by the Mughals and absorbed into the Mughal Empire in the 16th century.
