About the kingdoms in the Maros region

At the end of the 17th century in Maros and the surrounding area there had been established several autonomous kingdoms. These were the kingdoms of:
* Kingdom of Simbang,
* Kingdom of Bontoa,
* Kingdom of Lau,
* Kingdom of Turikale,
* Kingdom of Tanralli,
* Kingdom of Marusu.

The major expansion of Gowa since the reign of Karaeng Tumapakrisika Kallonna, King of Gowa IX, changed political geography of the map of South Sulawesi region. The Marusu kingdom, which used to be an independent and sovereign kingdom, became directly under the domination of Gowa. There was no significant resistance during the attack of Gowa to the north. The most northern region, Marusu, Bontoa bordering with Binanga Sangkara, Barasa region (Pangkajene) were easily conquered during the reign of King of Gowa X, Karaeng Tunipalangga. I Manriwagau Daeng Bonto Karaeng Lakiung Tunipallangga Ulaweng, King of Gowa X (1546-1565) sent I Mannyarrang, a nobleman of Bangkala, son of I Pasairi Daeng Mangngasi Karaeng Labbua Tali Bannangna, Karaeng of Bangkala to be Karaeng maggau’ in the region.
