Periode kingdom of Klungkung

The Klungkung kingdom was actually a continuation of the dynasty Gelgel. I Gusti Agung Maruti uprising appeared to have ended the period Gelgel. This happened, because the son of Dalem Di Made was already adult and he could defeat I Gusti Agung Maruti; the palace of Gelgel was not restored. Gusti Agung Jambe as a son, who was entitled to the throne, did not want the throne in Gelgel, but choose a new place as the center of government, namely the former hideout in Semarapura.
