About the king / dynasty

From kerajaan indonesia: link: Again the present need of Indonesian people to see their local identity fulfilled on 6 april 2011.
Then His Highness Prince Drs. Haji Longki Djanggola, bupati of Parigi Moutong, was elected as the new governor of Middle Sulawesi (Sulawesi Tengah).
Before, he was already a settled and experienced politician.
He is coming from the direct line of the magau  (raja) dynasty of Palu.  He is the son of Prince Yoto Djanggola, who is the olders son of Magau Djanggola, who ruled 1928 – 1945.
A son of a younger brother of this raja then was ruling for a while. The father of Magau Djanggola was Prince Lapariusi, who was the old Magauest son of Ypjokodi Tomesiema, who ruled 1876 – 1906.
Because Prince Lapariusi was sick at the time his father died, his younger brother Parampasi ruled in his place.
Thee line Magau Yojokodi can be drawn back more generations. Sometimes a sideline ruled for a while.
One of the fellow candidates of the governorship of Sulawesi Tengah is another royal bupati of this area: drs Haji Mohammad Maruf Bantilan; son of the last ruling Magau of Toli Toli, Magau Mohammad Yahya Bantilan (1926 – 1929, 1944 – 1946, 1957 – 19 ?).
