During 15th century, Singapore's status as key trading port was overtaken by Melaka.
Melaka pledged its loyalty to the Ming Navy and became the main port of call
Singapore continued to serve as a port, but less popular than Melaka.
The Siamese gave up Singapore to melaka due to its declining trade.
Hence, Singapore was under the rulers of Melaka in 15th century.
Singapore's connections with Johor-Riau Sultanate (16th-early 19th century)
In 1511, Portuguese attacked and conquered Melaka.
Its ruler fled to Riau Archipelago and in 1528, his descendent established a new capital (Johor-Riau Sultanate) near Johor River.
This Johor Sultanate kingdom included the areas that had previously belonged to the Melaka Sultanate, which included Singapore.
As part of Johor-Riau Sultanate, Singapore continued its role as a trading port and still had connections with other parts of the region.
These shards(form Ming & Qing Dynasties) found along Johor river suggest trade activities between China and Johor-Riau Sultanate.
Similar shards also found in Kallang river which shows Singapore was part of the Johor-Riau Sultanate trading network.
