History of the kingdom of Pureman
History records that Portuguese rule in Alor was limited to raising the Portuguese flag on some coastal areas. For example, in Kui, Mataru, Batulolong, Kolana, and Blagar. Similarly, the early Dutch occupied Alor, confined to the recognition of the rulers, who were on the coast as kings and on the placement of a Posthouder in Little Alor who was impaled right at the gate of Kabola in 1861.
In about 1910-1916, the Dutch were challenged by the people of Alor-Pantar. The famous kingdoms that no less dazzle the Netherlands such as the Kingdom of Bungabali, Kingdom of Kui, Kingdom of Kolana, Pureman Kingdom, Mataru Kingdom, Batulolong Kingdom, Baranusa Kingdom, Pandai Kingdom, and Blagar Kingdom. However, the Dutch with their policy of devide et impera and Korte Verklaring (Short Treatise) managed to conquer the kings.
