History of the kingdom of Bungabali
One of the kingdoms in the territory of the Alor Islands was the Kingdom of Bungabali (Alor) led by the Nampira dynasty. Before the Nampira dynasty came to power, this kingdom was led by King Kawiha Toeli. The kingdom of Bungabali (Alor) had a vast territory.
King Kawiha Toeli is one of the kings who reigned in the Kingdom of Bungabali (Alor). He ruled from 1903 to 1908. King Kawiha Toeli’s rule ended when Dutch intervention against local rulers and took power from the hands of local rulers. In 1912 there was a transfer of power from King Kawiha Toeli in Bungabali (Great Alor now) to the Nampira dynasty in Dulolong. The Dutch colonial government preferred Nampira Bukang to become King Bungabali (Alor) because he was educated and fluent in Dutch. As compensation, the crown prince of Tulimau was appointed as Kapitan Overtime.
King Kawiha Toeli’s power in the Bungabali Kingdom (Alor) ended when the Dutch arrived at Alor and interfered in the kingdom’s affairs and transferred King Kawiha Toeli’s power to the Nampira Dynasty. Therefore, this study was conducted to reveal about the transfer of power from King Kawiha Toeli to the Nampira Dynasty.
