As-Sultaniyah (Arabic: السلطانية) is a village in the Bint Jbeil District, in southern Lebanon, located just north of Tebnine. It was earlier called el Yehudiyeh.


According to E. H. Palmer in 1881, El Yehûdîyeh meant "the Jews" or "Jewish woman."[1]


In 1881, the PEF's Survey of Western Palestine (SWP) described it as: "A small village, containing about 100 Metawileh, situated in a valley, with olives, figs, and arable land. There is a spring and cisterns at the village."[2] They further noted that south of the village was a perennial spring, built up with masonry.[3]
