KINGDOM OF NEK RIUH
History of the kingdom of Nek Riuh, around 13th – 14th century
Since the 7th century there were Hindu kingdoms on Sambas region, which controled the Sambas River region and its surroundings. These kingdoms are also called “Old kingdom of Sambas”.
These kingdoms were:
* Kingdom of Wijaya Pura 7th – 9th century
* Kingdom of Nek Riuh, around 13th – 14th century
* Kingdom of Tan Unggal around the 15th century
* Kingdom of Panembahan Sambas, 15thcentury – 1671
* Sultanate of Sambas, 17th century – today
These four kingdoms were Hindu-Buddhist, but later there was the entry of Islam in West Kalimantan.
After the collapse of the kingdom of Panembahan Sambas in Kota Lama, a new kingdom was established, namely the Sambas sultanate with Raden Sulaiman being the first Sultan of Sambas with the title Sultan Muhammad Shafiuddin I in 1671.
The Kingdom of Nek Riuh was founded by a member of the Dayak tribe Bakati Rara, named Nek Riuh. According to the oral tradition that developed in the Sambas community, the Nek Riuh Kingdom / Lara Kingdom was located in the Sungai Raya area.
Authentically the Kingdom of Nek Riuh is listed in the great Negarakertagama book of Mpu Prapanca in Majapahit (1365) under King Hayam Wuruk and Mahapatih Gajah Mada, which states that one of the colonies of the Majapahit Kingdom on the island of Borneo was a kingdom whose king called himself “Nek Riuh”.
