At the beginning of the 16th century Dutch colonizers came in the region. The coming of the Dutch caused the Portuguese to leave this area. They went eastwards, towards the Philipina’s.
In the 19th century there were in the old Kabupaten of Bolaang Mongondow five kingdoms.
The largest of the Kingdoms was Bolaang Mongondow. Then there was the kingdom Bolaang Uki, in the 1850s still called the Kingdom Bolaang (Bangka). Next the kingdom of Bintauna (Binta Oena), the Kingdom Bolaang Itam and the Kingdom Kaidipang.
In 1912 the the kingdom of Bolaang–Itang joined the kingdom of Kaidipang. The name of the new kingdom was the Kingdom of Kaidipang Besar.
The Kingdom of Kaidipang Besar (1912 – 1950), was governed by the first and last king, King Ram Suit Pontoh (RS Pontoh).
