        as early as the 15-16th century, Sabah as a fief of the Sultanate of Brunei. In 1658, the Shaba North and East Brunei ceded part of the Sulu Sultan, in return for the latter to assist the normalized Sultanate of Brunei during a civil war. 18-19th century, United Kingdom and Spain involved in these areas, after a series of transfers and game, Spain sovereignty over the Sulu archipelago. 1881 United Kingdom settlers had established the British North Borneo company, leased the land from the Sulu Sultan, changed its name to the North Borneo and Sabah …
