History of the kingdom of Jembrana, 1705-1960

Google translation

Some of Bali’s oldest remains of prehistoric humans have been found in the Jembrana regency. Legend tells that sparsely populated West Bali got that way because its early in habitants were cursed invisibility for having violated the daughter of a powerful priest.
A ruling family related to the Gelgel house was established here in the mid 1400s, but a dispute among its two founders led to civil war and a destruction of the court. For a while the area was considered to be marginal part of the Badung Kingdom, and a prince from Sulawesi set himself up as ruler during the 17th century with little problem.
The period of the reign of the ancient kingdom of Jembrana lasted until about 1855 and according to the documentary records of Dutch government the Kingdom of Jembrana was an autonomous kingdom led by the king Jembrana V, with the title Sri Padoeka Ratoe I Gusti Poetoe Ngoerah Djembrana (1839-1855). During his reign the Kingdom of Jembrana signed a charter of bilateral friendship agreements with the Dutch-Indies Colonial Government on 30 June 1849.
After the death of King Jembrana V, the kingdom of Jembrana was led by King Jembrana VI: Gusti Ngurah Made Pasekan; in this period modern bureaucratic style has been used by the kingdom through local governance (Regentschap) which as part of Banyuwangi Residency, headed by a “King” as officials incorporated into the structure of the Dutch Colonial bureaucracy in Batavia (today known as the City of Jakarta). This status was carried Jembrana until 1882.
