* Bali – Perang Bali III, 1849

——————————————————————————————————-
Perang Bali III merupakan perang yang terjadi antara Koninklijk Nederlandsch-Indisch Leger dengan Kerajaan Bali pada tahun 1849.
Pimpinan ekspedisi ketiga dipegang oleh Jend. Andreas Victor Michiels, yang dipanggil dari Pesisir Barat Sumatera, dan pada bulan November 1848 mendapatkan kesempatan inspeksi ke sana. Dengan urusan tersebut, yang sejauh itu bisa diketahui, ia kemudian ditempatkan untuk memimpin angkatan perang sebanyak 5.000 prajurit dan 3.000 kuli di bulan Maret 1849, dan semuanya diberangkatkan ke Bali.
Pada tanggal 28 Maret, Michiels memimpin pasukannya ke Buleleng dan 2 hari kemudian ke Singaraja tanpa banyak perlawanan, dan esoknya sebuah perundingan diusahakan terhadap kerajaan tersebut; namun gagal. Dari sini, Michiels merencanakan serangan ke Jagaraga; di saat yang sama sebagian pasukan, di bawah pimpinan Jan van Swieten, sibuk menahan pasukan di depan, dan May. Cornelis Albert de Brauw (bersama tokoh lain seperti Willem Lodewijk Buchel, Johannes Root dan Karel van der Heijden) melakukan beberapa kerja tak resmi yang dengan cepat dapat menduduki. Hingga pagi hari, pengurangan di bagian barat dirasakan dan serangan di depan oleh Van Swieten diulang kembali, yang setelah itu Jagaraga jatuh dan pasukan Bali melarikan diri.

The Dutch intervention in Bali in 1849 was a major Dutch military intervention in Northern and Southern Bali, following two failed interventions, the 1846 intervention and the 1848 intervention. The Dutch used as a pretext Balinese salvage claims over shipwrecks, which were customary to the Balinese, but unacceptable under International law.
Reluctant to follow them overland, the Dutch returned to their ships and sailed to Southern Bali, where they landed in Padang Bai in order to attack Klungkung, nominal overlord of Buleleng. In the meantime, however, the Dutch managed to establish an alliance with neighbouring Lombok against Karangasem, an old enemy of Lombok. Lombok troops were sent onboard Dutch ships, and ambushed Buleleng leaders. In this encounter both Jelantik and the Raja of Buleleng were killed, and the ruler of Karangasem committed ritual suicide.

Attack of the Balinese in Kosamba.
The Dutch continued their campaign into Klungkung, occupying Goa Lawah and Kusamba. The climate and diseases were taking their toll on the Dutch troops, which were in a precarious position. The Dutch suffered heavy casualties however when the sister of the ruler of Klunkung, Dewa Agung, led a night offensive against the Dutch in Kusamba, killing the commander Major General Michiels. The Dutch were forced to retreat in haste to their ships, confronted by a force of 33,000 Balinese from Badung, Gianyar, Tabanan and Klungkung. This resulted in a stalemate.

General Andreas Victor Michiels was killed by Klunkung forces in Kosamba in 1849.
The death of Jelantik nevertheless represented a considerable blow to Balinese resistance. Through the intervention of the trader Mads Lange and the ruler Kesinan of Badung, a new treaty was signed in July 1849, giving control over Buleleng and Jembrana to the Dutch. The ruler of Lombok obtained control over Karangasem. The Dutch had their headquarters in Singaraja, where a Dutch Controller ruled over the local Raja from 1855.
