History of the kingdom of Besoa

There is no information about this kingdom, only the story below.
It was a kingdom under the kingdom of Poso.

Google translation

As the successor of the king, Siominanga was appointed as his father’s successor. He is known as Mokole Siominanga, of Balinggi. He no longer finds it difficult to rule because he has always been with his father since his childhood. He is also liked by his people. The kingdom of Balinggi reaches the height of its glory under his rule. Some jealous kings like the king of Bada, Lore, Napu, and Besoa are located south of the kingdom of the High. Three times they attacked the high kingdom. The first attack launched by the kingdom of Bada, but was successfully broken by the kingdom of Balinggi. Because of hurt, the kingdom of Bada joined the kingdom of Napu to attack the kingdom of Balinggi back, but the attack was still successfully paralyzed by the kingdom of Balinggi. The next attack of the kingdom of Bada, the kingdom of Napu, and the kingdom of Besoa rejoined to attack the kingdom of Balinggi and still succeed their halau. Although human casualties are falling until blood flows the river that floods the villages.
