History of the sultanate of Sambaliung

The founding of the Sambaliung Sultanate was the result of the breaking of the Berau Empire, where Berau was split into two, Sambaliung and Gunung Tabur in the 1810s.  The first Sultan of Sambaliung was Sultan Alimuddin, better known as Raja Alam. Raja Alam is a descendant of Baddit Dipattung or better known as Aji Suryanata Kesuma of the first king of Berau.

The kingdom of Berau was divided in 1810 into the Kingdom of Sambaliung and the Kingdom of Gunung Tabur. In 1750 the sultanate of Bulungan was established.
3 Kingdoms emerged from the kingdom of Berau:
* Sambaliung,
* Gunung Tabur,
