History of the kingdom

Google translation

Konawe Kingdom exists since the 5th century and king I was Tanggolwuta. Previously there were small kingdoms: Kingdom of Wawolesea, Kingdom of Besulutu and Kingdom Padangguni.

The opinion is why Wekoila who agreed to become King I in the Kingdom of Konawe, described as follows:
– Before Wekoila became Mokole (king) More I of Konawe, the ruling kings did not have a regular government system concept.
– Kings ruled autocratically, did not use the king’s auxiliary apparatus, so the wheels of government were not going well.
– Kings did not yet understand what to do, to whom should be responsible, if there was a vacuum in government. King Wekoila became the head of the Konawe Kingdom (± 948 – 968) is considered as a sign of the beginning of a well-organized system of government.
