|Abdul Majid Hasan / Maharaja Karna|
|2nd Sultan of Brunei|
|Reign||1402–1408 CE|
|Successor||Ahmad of Brunei|
He was never mentioned in Salasilah Raja-Raja Brunei. A ruler from Boni named Ma Na Re Jia Na (麻那惹加那) is recorded in the Ming historical record. He sent a mission to China in 1406. The Brunei History Centre suggests that this was the Brunei sultan Abdul Majid Hassan, but there is so far no evidence for this assumption.

The earliest historical record of the Sultans of Brunei is not clearly known due to the poor early documentation of Brunei's history. Many elder members of the House of Bolkiah claim that their ancestors were the BaHassan and BaAlawi Saadah from Tarim in the Hadhramaut region in modern-day Yemen. In addition there has been an effort to Islamise the history, with the "official history" not matching up with verifiable foreign sources. The Batu Tarsilah, the genealogical record of the kings of Brunei, was not established until 1807 CE. From the fact that Abdul Majid Hassan died in 1408 at the age of 28, we can surmise he was born in 1380.
