The present Sutan’s dynasty of Indragiri was founded in the 15th century.
It was made by a nobleman from the Minangkabauw empire in W-Sumatra, who was dissatisfied with a situation.
For a time it was under the sway of the Riau-Lingga Sultanate: it’s neighbor.
Indragiri was also functioning as a sort of judge/control power for ore little nearby principalities.
It is one of the biggest principalities of Indonesia.
It is known for not having a very vilent history.
From 1876-the 1890-ies there were many thronestruggle events. In 1902 the minor-Sutan Mahmud Syah came to the throne; effective rule in 1912. He ruled as one of the last kings of Indonesia, who had to give up his throne for civil rule (after his death in 1963).
He was also one of the best rulers Indragiri ever had. The local people and the Dutch East-Indish government were full of compliments for this dedicated and serious ruler.
After his death his son Tengku Muhammad became the unofficial chief of the Sutan’s dynasty. He died in 1984.His younger brother Tengku Arief was installed in 1988 as the 27th raja of Indragiri and also one of the first rajas, who thought, that it was time to be a dynasty chief as identity focus point for the people.
In 2008 the in 1961 destroyed palace was rebuild by the district chief (who also was a member of the dynasty).
The present dynasty chief, his family and his own children are known for there very good education.
They try to keep the history and the local culture alive, but also learn form the foreign countries. Not only in words, but also in acts.
An exemplary dynasty to.
