History of the kingdom of Pulau Laut, 1845 – 1903

The Kingdom of Pulau Laut and Pulau Sebuku was a semi-independent kingdom. Pulau Laut, which was established by Prince Jaya Sumitra (King Kusan IV), he moved government to this area. The kingdom consists of Pulau Laut and Sebuku, off the southeastern coast of the island of Borneo.
Pangeran Jaya Sumitra bin Pangeran Aji Musa, Raja Kusan IV,  (since 1845), became  Raja Pulau Laut I.
Before, the centre of this kingdom was located near Kusan in Tanah Bumbu, South Kalimantan and was called the Kingdom of Kusan; after being moved to Pulau Laut, the King became King of Pulau Laut I. The kings of this region had the title of Pangeran or Ratu (for women), because this region is actually a branche of the Sultanate of Banjar. The children of the king of Pulau Laut were called Gusti (male) and Putri (female).
This kingdom was once a part of the Sultanate of Banjar. According to the Contract Agreement in 1797, Laut Pulo Sea (Pulau Laut) returns submitted to the Sultanate of Banjar (read: Sultan Tahmidullah II), because the agreement had previously been submitted to the VOC.
