History of the principality
Sukapura district was established and inaugurated after the completion of the Dipati Ukur War which was stated in the Sultan Mataram Charter, exactly on July 26, 1632.
In the 17th century Priangan was divided into four duchy’s. One among them was under the leadership of Ki Wirawangsa Umbul Sukakerta, with the title of Tumenggung Wiradedaha. He was an ancestor of the adipati’s / bupati’s of Sukapura.
1811/1813 Raden Anggadipa (1807-1811 / 1813) was removed from his post by the Dutch colonial government for refusing the forced cultivation of indigo as a substitute for rice. He objected to the Dutch policy, because it will lead to people starving. As a result of the defiance, the Kadipaten of Sukapura was temporarily abolished and handed over to the government of Raden Tumenggung Wangsareja (1805-1811).
At the end of the 19th century, Dutch rearranged Priangan government and divided it into 9 afdeling (German: Abteilung). One Afdeling was Sukapura, under Raden Tumenggung Wiratanubaya IV.
Wirahadiningrat (1874-1906) was awarded the Star of Orange Nassau of the Netherlands.
January 1, 1913 the District Sukapura was renamed Tasikmalaya District.
