History of the kingdom of Giri Kedaton, 15th – 17th century

Giri Kedaton was an islamic kingdom in Gresik, East Java around the 15th century until the 17th. This kingdom had triumphed as a center of Islamic religion, whose influence even spread to the Moluccas.
Giri Kedaton was established by Raden Paku, a member of Walisongo in the year 1487. Once Raden Paku went to see his father, who was  a scholar in Pasai, named Maulana Isaac. His father sent him to build a religious school in Gresik.
The Sultanate of Mataram under the reign of Sultan Agung wanted Giri Kedaton as a subordinate area. In 1630 under the leadership of Sunan Kawis Guwa Giri Kedaton rejected to be ruled by Mataram.
Nobody in Mataram dared to face Giri Kedaton. Apparently they still feared the sanctity of the Walisongo, though the council was not there anymore.
Panembahan Ageng Giri was captured and executed. And the family was destroyed. Since then ended the Giri Kedaton history.
