History of the kingdom

Kasunanan Kartasura was a kingdom on the island of Java that existed 1680 – 1742, as a continuation of the Sultanate of Mataram.
Sri Susuhunan Amangkurat II, 1677-1703 was the founder and first king of Kasunanan Kartasura.

Mataram reached its peak of power during the reign of Sultan Agung Hanyokrokusumo (r. 1613 – 1645), and began to decline after his death in 1645.

In 1680 Amangkurat II (reigend 1677-1703) moved the palace to Kartasura (1680), about 5 km west of Pajang, because the old palace was considered contaminated.
Since then the sultanate was called Kasunanan Kartasura.

In 1755 the kingdom was split into the Sultanate of Yogyakarta and the Sultanate of Surakarta. This was the result of the Treaty of Giyanti, 1755.

Fall of the kingdom

In 1740 there was a Chinese uprising in Batavia that spread all over Java. At first Pakubuwana II (successor Amangkurat IV) supported them. But when he saw the VOC superior, he also turned to support the Dutch.
Pakubuwana II’s actions actually made the rebel power increase as many anti-VOC officials abandoned it. Finally on 30 June 1742 the rebels stormed Kartasura heavily. Pakubuwana II fled to Ponorogo.

The VOC teamed up with Cakraningrat IV of Madura and succeeded in retaking Kartasura. At the end of 1743 Pakubuwana II returned to Kartasura but the condition of the city was destroyed. He also decided to build a new palace in the village called Sala, named Surakarta, which he occupied since 1745.
