History of the kingdom
In ancient times Jeneponto was a great kingdom, an independent kingdom and had four great empires including Arungkeke, Binamu, Tarowang and Bangkala.
The kingdom of Bangkala was sourced from the kekarean Kalimporo.
The Kingdoms of Arungkeke, Tarowang, and Bangkala, were autonomous kingdoms like the kingdom of Binamu di Butta Turatea. They did not supervise each other, but still interacted and shared each other because of the similarities of language, culture, traditions, and customs to each other.
Bangkala was one of the territories of the Kingdom of Gowa during the reign of Sombayya Ri Gowa Tunipallangga Raja Gowa Ke X named I Manriwagau Daeng Bonto Karaeng Lakiung Tunipallangga Ulaweng (1546 – 1565).
