The Funj are an ethnic group in present day Sudanmarker. Their origins are not clearly known, but they are recorded as moving into Nubia from the Suddmarker to the south in the early sixteenth century, fleeing the pressure of the Shilluk. Arriving in Nubia, they absorbed the empire built up by Abdallah Jamma and set up the Funj Sultanate of Sinnar that ruled the area for several centuries.

The Funj monarchy had become Arabized by the time the kingdom collapsed in 1821, adopting Arabic as their common language.
