KINGDOM OF LIMAU
History of the kingdom of Limau
The kingdom of Limu or also called Sahabelimu was in 1520 under the rule of Kulane Pahawon Seke’s brother of Kulane Bulega Langi, based in Sahabe.
The first information about the kingdoms on Sangiheis by the records of Magellan clerk in 1421, Antonio Pigaffeta. At Sangihe, Pigafetta noted there were four kingdoms. Two in Siau and one in Tagulandang.
But three centuries later, the results of the writings of F. Valentijn who came to Sangihe early 18th century, mentioned initially only two kingdoms in Sangihe, namely Tabukan and Kalongan. According to him, there were 9 kingdoms in Sangihe in 1670, namely: Kendahe Kingdom, Taruna Kingdom, Kolongan Kingdom, Manganitu Kingdom, Kauhis Kingdom, Limau Kingdom, Tabukan Kingdom, Sawang Kingdom (Saban) and Tamako Kingdom.
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.
