In the 13th century, in Central Sulawesi there were already several kingdoms such as Banawa Kingdom, Tawaeli Kingdom, Sigi Kingdom, Proud Kingdom, and Banggai Kingdom. The influence of Islam on the kingdoms in Central Sulawesi began to be felt in the 16th century. The spread of Islam in Central Sulawesi is the result of the expansion of the kingdoms in South Sulawesi. The initial influence came from the Kingdom of Bone and the Kingdom of Wajo.
