KINGDOM OF KOLONGAN
History of the kingdom of Kolongan
In the Portuguese and Spanish colonies, the king of Kolongan Pontoralage, who was a friend of the king of Siau, Wuisang, had asked the priest Diego Magelhaes to come to Kolongan. The request could be fulfilled by Padri and accompanied by the Wuisang king to Sangihe in 1568.
Arrived at Kolongan the king was baptized and he married. Then the priest held a mass baptism for the bobato and residents on the river Akembawi on November 10, 1568.
Finally Kolongan empire disappeared, because abandoned by the population caused by:
a. Battle with the Portuguese
b. Family dispute in the kingdom
c. Removal of Awu mountain eruption, as the first eruption recorded in 1641 and later recorded in the journal Padtbruge 1677.
The Kolongan people fled to Tahuna including the hero Tatehe Woba, who founded the Tahuna kingdom in 1600.
A brief history of the kingdoms on the Sangihe Islands
13th century: kingdom of Tampunganglawo.
After 1400 the Tampunganglawo kingdom was divided into 2 parts, namely the northern part named Sahabe (Lumango) and the southern part named Manuwo (Saluran).
After 1530 these two kingdoms were reunited again by King Makaampo (Makaampo Wawengehe) with his territory starting from Sahabe, Kuma, Kuluhe, Manalu, Channel to Lapango, and this kingdom was called Rimpulaeng with the center of government in Channel (Moade) and ended until 1575.
Then Tampunganglawo, 3 kingdoms emerged:
* The Tahuna (Malahasa) kingdom was centered in Tahuna (Bukide), with its King Ansaawuwo also known as Tatehe or Tatehewoba (1580-1625).
* The Manganese kingdom was centered in Kauhis, with its King Boo or also known as Liung Tolosang (1600-1630).
* The Kingdom of Kendahe was centered in Makiwulaeng, with its King Egaliwutang (1600-1640).
1670: Around the 1670s, apart from the Tagulandang kingdom and the previously existing Siau kingdom on the southern boundary (Siau Tagulandang Biaro Islands), in Sangihe there were nine kingdoms, namely:
– kingdom of Kendahe,
– kingdom of Taruna,
– kingdom of Kolongan,
– kingdom of Manganitu,
– kingdom of Kauhis,
– kingdom of Limau,
– kingdom of Tabukan,
– kingdom of Sawang (Saban)
– kingdom of Tamako.
Previous kingdoms disappeared because of a number of reasons.
The Tamako Kingdom became part of the Siau kingdom on the Siau Islands.
Meanwhile, the Limau kingdom was crushed by troops sent by the Dutch Governor in Maluku, Padtbrugge. This kingdom was ruined.
The Sawang Kingdom joined the Tahuna kingdom.
The Kauhis Kingdom joined the Manganitu kingdom.
In 1898 the kingdom of Kendahe and the kingdom of Taruna were united.
