History of the kingdom of Blambangan
The Kingdom of Blambangan was located at the eastern tip of the Island of Java. It had a long history of its own, developing contemporaneously with the largest Hindu kingdom on Java, Majapahit (1293–1527). At the time of the collapse of Majapahit in the late fifteenth century, Blambangan stood on its own as the one solitary Hindu kingdom left in Java, controlling the larger part of Java’s East.
For almost three centuries, Blambangan was situated between two different political factions, the Islamic state of Mataram in the west, and various Hindu realms in Bali (Gelgel, Buleleng, and Mengwi) in the east. Both neighbouring powers simultaneously contested the territory of Blambangan to appease their own political and religious ambitions.
According to the Chronicle of Java and to the author of the Dutchman Francois Valentyn, in the 17th century, Blambangan was subordinate to Surabaya, but this is doubtful. Sultan Agung of Mataram (reigned 1613-1646), who attacked Blambangan in 1633, was never able to conquer it.
