Kadipaten Pakualaman (also written Paku Alaman) is a small hereditary Kadipaten (Duchy) within the Sultanate of Yogyakarta. It was founded on March 17, 1813, when Prince Notokusumo, son of Sultan Hamengku Buwono I was installed by GovernorGeneral Sir Thomas Raffles (Governor General of Great Britain, who ruled at that time) as Kangjeng Gusti Pangeran Adipati Paku Alam I.
It became the mirror-image of the Mangkunegaran principality in the territory of the Sultanate of Surakarta. It became the mirror-image of the Mangkunegaran principality in the territory of the Susuhunanate of Surakarta.
Due to Paku Alam VIII‘s role in the Indonesian independence movement, a law was passed to give the position of vice-governor of the Yogyakarta Special Region to the ruling Paku Alam prince at any particular time. Meanwhile, the Sultans of Yogyakarta were to hold the governor’s office hereditarily.
