The Kingdom of Bombana has historical and cultural ties to the Kingdom of Luwu. The first king (Mokole) of Bombana, Mokole Dendeangi was the Sawerigading sibling (King Luwu). Then, the Kingdom of Bombana was broken into three small kingdom during the reign of Mokole Bombana Ke-III, Mokole Nungkulangi. Having three inheritors, the Kingdom of Bombana was broken into three kingdoms, namely:
