Under the Emirate of Ankara and Sultantate of Ankara
The city was founded during in 645 AD the rise of Islam under the Emir Zahrid Ankara who was from Rafhareeq and made it the capital of the Emirate of Ankara. When the Emirate of Ankara switched to becoming the Ankara Sultanate everyone in the city took on the title of "Sultan" or "Sultani" at the end pf their last names to signify they were from Ankarabad. Ankarabad remained the capital of the Ankara Sultanate until it was taken over by the Qunazicana Caliphate in 790 AD. During it's time under the Sultanate it was an important trading hub for the region but the city would not grow significantly until under the Islamic Republic of Greater Sacramento in 1515 AD.
Under the Qunazicana Caliphate
During the Qunazicana Caliphate the city saw stagnation in many aspects. Due to this for about 100 years revolution was brewing in Ankarabad as the rest of Azumanka and the Hejaz. The city was the hub for books that the Qunazicana Caliphate prohibited and many practiced Ayyad Islam in contrast to the Shiya Islam practiced by the Qunazicana Caliphate. In 896 the Governor of Ankarabad declared that Ankarabad was no longer under the governace of the Qunazicana Caliphate and swore allegiance to the Kashiludun Revolt which began the rise of the Kashiludun Caliphate
Under the Kashiludun Caliphate
After 896, the city was the major spot for Kashiludun support. When the Kashiludun Caliphate was established in 898 the city began to see population regrowth and was on pace to being one of the largest cities in the caliphate. The population exceeded 2 million in 1355 during this era. During the 1400s the city saw stagnation and somewhat of a decline and due to this many converted to Ahfariq Islam and revolution began to rise in the city.
Blue Flag Revolution
In 1495 the Ankarabad Republican Army took control of Ankarabad and became a leader city in the Blue Flag Revolution. The cities control grew until after the Conference of Asr El Ziqara where the local democratic armies united into the United Front for Islamic Democracy. In 1500 after the overthrowing of the Kashiludun Caliphate the city was mostly untouched by battles unlike Chaqaz and Fez.
Under the Early Islamic Republic
The city under the new Islamic Republic started to see population gain rapidly. The Ankarabad Stock Exchange was established in 1555 and in 1765 the population grew to 5 million and the city became the largest in Greater Sacramento. This was due to the city being at the entrance of Naztum Sea, the Janub Sea and the Eastern Ocean making it the entrance to all other major ports in Greater Sacramento.
During the the 1800s and 1900s the city saw extreme industrialization. The pollution in the city was reported to have been extremely bad to looked like fog. As this was a common problem in cities like Qahrdoba, Rafhareeq, and Ibrahamshah the Sacramatian Government installed environment regulations in 1966 and this resulted in Ankarabad being a cleaner city.
Today the city is the second largest city in the world only behind San Salvador in Creeperopolis. It hosts over 40 million people and is classified as an Aurek ++ city by the Globalization and Terraconserva Cities Research Network. The city's Amatullah El Medina Sultani International Airport is the busiest in the world due to it's geography and ability to connect the flights from Creeperopolis to Quebecshire and from the western cities of Eminople, Wildavie, and New Gandor to the western of the continent. It also hosts leading areas of the Sacramatian IT industry.
