History of the kingdom
There is no information about this kingdom.
As the successor of the king, Siominanga was appointed as his father’s successor. He is known as Mokole Siominanga, which means king of Siominanga. He not found it difficult to rule, because he had always been with his father since his childhood. He was also liked by his people. The kingdom of Balinggi reached the height of its glory under his rule. Some jealous kings like the king of Bada, Lore, Napu, and Besoa were located south of the kingdom of the Balinggi. Three times they attacked the Balinggi kingdom. The first attack was launched by the kingdom of Bada, but 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 succeeded their halau. Although human casualties were falling until blood flows the river that floods the villages.
