History of the sultanate

Google translation

Before the kingdom of Buton there was the kingdom of Wolio.
The forerunner of the kingdom of Buton to become a Kingdom was first pioneered by the group Mia Patamiana (the four people) namely Sipanjonga, Simalui, Sitamanajo, Sijawangkati, who by their oral source originated from the Malay Peninsula Peninsula at the end of the 13th century.
The kingdom of Buton was founded in 1332. The beginning of the reign was led by a queen titled Queen Wa Kaa Kaa. Then the second king was also a queen namely Queen Bulawambona. After two queens, there were King Bataraguru, King Tuarade, King Rajamulae, and lastly King Murhum. When Buton embraced Islam, the Murhum King was titled Sultan Murhum.
The kingdom of Buton officially became an Islamic kingdom during the reign of King Buton to-6, namely Timbang Timbangan or Lakilaponto or Halu Oleo.
