Riau, Lingga, Candidate Sultan Tuanku Abdulrachman

In 1911 the greatgrandfather of this monarch abdicated before the Dutch could depose him and went into exile in Singapore, which before tiogether with the south of Malaysia also was part of the Riau-Lingga sultanate. He was to much opposing the plans of the Dutch to make a regulated rule there.
Until now the dynasty staRiau, Lingga-Candidate, Sultan Tuanku Abdulrachman ys in exile in Singapore, also because until Indonesian independence the Dutch obstructed the coming back of this rather important dynasty.
This retired Singapore army-officer is a very dedicated historian corned with Riau-Lingga. Maybe his collection of Riau-Lingga material is the most biggest in the world.
Espacially concerning the pedigree material with many illustrations.
He isn also a rather friendly monarch, who has good contact with the Sultan’s dynasty of Singapore, who were ca. 200 years ago rivals.
I hope, that the bond between the dynasty and the people of Riau-Lingga will remain until this time.
