History of the kingdom of Janggala

The Kingdom of Janggala is one of the two Javanese kingdoms, that was formed when Airlangga abdicated his throne in favour of his two sons in 1045. The other Kingdom was Kediri. The Kingdom of Janggala comprised the northeastern part of the Kingdom of Kahuripan.
Airlangga was the only king of the Kahuripan kingdom on Java. At the end of his life he decided to divide his kingdom between his two sons; the new kingdoms were Kadiri and Janggala. “After establishing his kingdom between his two sons and he himself retired to life of monastic contemplation.” Here we learn that Airlangga even before he died, handed over his kingdom to retire to his own personal thought and meditation.
Janggala finally was conquered by the king Sri Jayabhaya of Kadiri.
Since then Janggala was subordinate to Kadiri. According to Kakawin Smaradahana, the king of Kadiri named Sri Kameswara, who reigned circa 1182-1194, had a queen from Janggala named Kirana.
