Jakarta (DreamLandLibrary) - Jayadewata or Prabu Dewantaprana Sri Baduga Maharaja or Prabu Siliwangi is one of the most famous and powerful Raja Pajajaran. He has a lot of followers and makes Sunda famous throughout the archipelago.

The title as King Wangi was given to him by his people, because of his obstinacy in maintaining the honor and dignity of the Sunda Galuh United Kingdom from the attack of the Majapahit Kingdom, during the "Bubat War", in 1,357 AD

He died along with all his beautiful attendants, bodyguards, and daughter, Dyah Pitaloka. Prabu Wangi's predicate as a tribute to all the services, and devotion of the King, so that the name becomes Fragrant or Fragrant.

  • King Linggadéwata (1311-1333)
  • Prabu Ajiguna Linggawisésa (1333-1340)

  • Prabu Niskala Wastu Kancana son of Linggabuanawisesa or Anggalarang or Wangisutah (1,371 AD - 1,475 AD) Prabu Siliwangi I
  • Sri Baduga Maharaja Ratu Aji (Aji - Not Hajj) / Prabu Susuktunggal (1,475 AD - 1,482 AD) Prabu Siliwangi II as King of Sunda only. This is because after the death of Prabu Niskala Wastu Kancana, the kingdom was split in two between Prabu Susuktunggal and Prabu Dewa Niskala (a king of Surawisesa Kingdom in Galuh Kawali 1,475 AD - 1,482 AD) in an equal position.
  • Jayadéwata Sri Baduga Maharaja, son of Dewa Niskala, Jayadéwata holds the title Sri Baduga Maharaja / Raden Pamanah Rasa / Pangeran Jaya Dewata (1,482 AD - 1,521 AD) Prabu Siliwangi III

According to Prof. Dr. Ayatrohaedi, Prabu Bunisora ​​Suradipati (Prabu Wangi's younger brother) is not referred to as Prabu Siliwangi, because only as "Queen of Panyelang" or "King of the Settlers".

So King Siliwangi is counted starting from Niskala Wastu Kancana (son of King Wangi), so the sequence is as mentioned above. That is because in general, the King's lineage is, referring to the Nasab Raja in a male line to the lineage above it.

Therefore, the Linggabuana prabu's younger brother, Bunisora ​​Suradipati, is not counted as King Siliwangi, because he is not his descendant.

While the Tanah Impian Team uses general Nasab, except in certain situations, for example Prabu Wangi does not have a Son.

On the other hand, some cultural observers assumed that Prabu Bunisora ​​Suradipati, the younger brother of Sri Baduga Maharaja I Linggabuanawisésa alias Prabu Wangi, included "Siliwangi". So King Bunisora ​​is counted as "Siliwangi I". So that there are 9 people who have King Siliwangi's title.

Siliwangi is Title
From a manuscript written in 1,518 AD, when Sri Baduga was still alive. King Siliwangi's plays in various versions cored the story of the character to become king in Pakuan.

Sri Baduga is better known by the name Prabu Wangi, who in Kropak 630 as a pantun play.

Jayadewata or Sri Baduga Maharaja I Linggabuanawisésa (who died in the Bubat War, 1,350 AD - 1,357 AD), which was identified with King Wangi, was actually the beginning of the emergence of the term King Siliwangi for his descendants.

So the name Prabu Siliwangi is a nickname for Sundanese kings who replaced the previous Sundanese king, after the predicate of King Wangi appeared.

This is exactly the same as the history of the Javanese, who recorded five kings named Prabu Brawijaya, and the most well-known coincidence was the last one, Prabu Brawijaya V, which also ended with Moksa (Ngahiyang).

While the history of Sundanese people, there are eight King Siliwangi where the most talked about is the last one, King Siliwangi VIII, which also happens to end with Moksa (Ngahiyang).

According to the Cirebon Wangsakerta script (written for 21 years, 1,677 AD - 1,698 AD with Javanese script), strengthened by the opinion of Prof. Dr. Ayatrohaedi, archeologist, linguist, Sundanese history researcher, and professor of archeology at the Faculty of Literature at the University of Indonesia, actually there is no Sundanese king named Prabu Siliwangi.

His descendants are still there

Armed with the "Mandate of Galunggung": There used to be now, not before, then there is not now.

Then it can be said that the descendants of Siliwangi still exist today.

Departing from the father line (geneology line), the descendants to this day have the right to call Siliwangi. Even though they no longer have the political power of the state, the title Siliwangi can be used by their descendants (seuweu-siwi), from Garwa Padmi (Empress).

The meaning of Siliwangi is derived from the words "Silih" and "Wawangi", meaning as a substitute for King Wangi.

Reader Rajyarajya I Bhumi Nusantara II revealed that the Sundanese regarded Sri Baduga as a replacement for Prabu Wangi, as a penance that had been lost.

The manuscript with its essence includes:

In the Bubat battlefield, King Wangi was undaunted by the large Majapahit army led by the Patih Gajah Mada.

Prabu Maharaja was very knowledgeable in weapons, and adept at fighting, not willing to be ruled or colonized by others, he destroyed many of his enemies.

He fought for prosperity and welfare of his people throughout the Sunda Tatar earth. Even though in the end, he and all his retinue fell dead.

But the attitude of the knight the King Maharaja, very proud of the family, the ministers of the kingdom, the army, and the people of the Sundanese Tatars.

That pride made King Maharaja Linggabuanawisésa / Sri Baduga Maharaja I Linggabuanawisésa called the King Maharaja Mewangi, hereinafter he was referred to as "Prabu Wangi". Then the descendants are called by the name Prabu Siliwangi.

In addition, according to old tradition, people are not allowed to mention the real title of King - farewell, therefore through the pantun Siliwangi is popular.

As Prabu Siliwangi known in Sundanese literature, at the time of Wangsakerta, revealed, that Siliwangi is not a personal name

"Kawalya ta wwang Sunda versus ika wwang Carbon mwang sakweh ira wwang Jawa Kulwan anyebuta Prabhu Siliwangi king Pajajaran. Dadyeka Dudu is self-serving roomie.

Meaning :
"Only Sundanese and Cirebon people and all West Javanese call King Siliwangi Raja Pajajaran. So that name is not his personal name. "
