About the kingdom
Sidenreng Rappang originally consisted of two kingdoms, the kingdom of Rappang and the kingdom of Sidenreng. The two kingdoms were very familiar. So familiar, that it is hard to find demarcation. Even in matters of royal succession, both could succeed in the other kingdom. Often the king of Sidenreng choose someone of the kingdom of Rappang to succeed. Vice versa, if the seat of the kingdom of Rappang was empty, they choose someone from Sidenreng. That is why it is difficult to find the dividing line of the two kingdoms. Dialects are of the same language, everyday language is also similar. Rappang region was in the northern part, while the kingdom Sidenreng was located in the southern part.
