Jakarta (Dreamland Library) - Sultanate of Melaka is a Malay Kingdom that once stood in Melaka, Malaysia. This kingdom was founded by Parameswara, then reached the peak of glory in the 15th century by controlling the Melaka Strait shipping lane, before it was conquered by Portugal in 1511. The fall of Malacca became the entrance for European colonialism in the Nusantara region.

This kingdom does not leave sufficient archaeological evidence to be used as historical study material, but the existence of this kingdom can be known through Sulalatus Salatin and Chinese chronicles during the Ming Dynasty.

The comparison of these two sources still creates complexity for Malacca's early history, especially its relationship to the development of Islam in Malacca and the time span of the respective governments of Malacca kings. At first Islam had not become a religion for the people of Malacca, but the subsequent development of Islam had become part of this kingdom which was shown by the title of sultan carried by the next ruler of Malacca.
