History of the kingdom

Google translation

The kingdom of Siang in South Sulawesi once reached its heyday before the rise of the kingdom of Gowa – Tallo. Siang is expected to experience a “golden age” around the XV century – XVI – while the Bugis Makassar people will know the tradition of writing “lontarak” in the XVII century. The kingdom of Siau is little known and only little can be revealed through archaeological research in the former central government and harbor of Siang Sengkae Site, Bori Appaka, Bungoro Sub-district of Pangkep Regency (70 km from Makassar).

According to the Portuguese records of the 16th century, Gowa and Tallo were once day vassals. The local oral tradition maintains this view. The invention of valuable archaeological finds in the former territory of Siang seems to further reinforce the assumption, that this kingdom was a mighty kingdom on the west coast of South Sulawesi before the rise of Gowa and Tallo (Pelras 1973: 54).
In the year 1540 or long before, the harbor had been visited by many traders from various corners of the archipelago. Portuguese observer Manuel Pinto estimated that in 1545 Siang had a population of around 40,000.
In 1542, Antonio de Paiva, visited the central area of the Kingdom of Siang and lived in Siang for some time.
Abdul Razak Dg Mile stated that the first King of Siang was called Tu-manurunge Ri Bontang.
