History of the kingdom

During dutch times the kingdom of Bintauna was part of the Afdeling Gorontalo, because at VOC times Bintauna was a Marsaoleh-schar; this is a region, headed by a Marsaoleh (Ulea) from the kingdom of Suwawa.
Later, the king of Bintauna freed himself from the kingdom Bone or Suwawa, and formed later his own kingdom, named Vintauna.
The Mokapog kingdom was the parent country, which later evolved into the three kingdoms:
* Kingdom of Kaidipang,
* Bintauna kingdom and
* later the Kingdom of Bolangitang.
In 1912 the Kaidipang and Bolangitang kingdoms were united with the name: Kingdom Kaidipang Besar.
The Kaidipang kingdom was founded by Pugu pugu Maurits Datubinangkal Korompot.
And the Bintauna kingdom was founded by Datu Solagu atau Datunsolang.
The first king of the Kingdom Bolangitang was Salmon Muda Pontoh.
The Kingdom of Kaidipang Besar (1912 – 1950), was governed by the first and last king, King Ram Suit Pontoh (RS Pontoh).
