History of the kingdom
Sanrabone is a little principality south of Makassar. In the Makassar, or Gowa area there were several little principalities founded by descendants of a Gowa sultan. Sanrabone is descended from a high prince. In ca. 1860 the principalities in this area mostly lost their indirect monarchy rule and became regencies; ruled however still by the dynasties.
Sanrabone principality was for a time under Gowa, later became more independent by the dutch. The dynasty was quite a lot intermarried with the Gowa dynasty, so that several rajas of Sanrabone also were Sultans of Gowa.
The present Karaeng of Sanrabone has a special coloured belt with blocks around his waist. That means in Bugis/Makasarese royal world, that he is a Monarch.
