History of the kingdom of Suppa

Google translation

The Suppa Kingdom was founded in the 14th century.
The founding of the Suppa kingdom began with the appointment of Manurung’nge as the first Datu of Suppa by people who witnessed and heard the news of his arrival in the land of Suppa.

The Suppa Kingdom was a member kingdom of the Ajatappareng confederation which was located to the west of Lake Tempe, Lake Sidenreng, and Lake Crocodile.

Around the 15th century, this confederation was founded by La Makkarawi Datu Suppa (but this is still being studied further) which resulted in the merging of the Five Kingdoms, namely the kingdoms of Sawitto, Suppa, Sidenreng, Rappang, and Alitta.
One of the motives for the merging of these kingdoms was, because it was known as the largest rice producer in South Sulawesi and became a bone of contention for the big kingdoms, namely Luwu, Bone, and Gowa.

After the alliance was formed, it seemed that Ajatappareng’s existence was getting more advanced, it was marked by the presence of several traders from outside, including Antonio De Paiva in 1544, a Portuguese trader. The progress of trade in agricultural products has invited a larger kingdom to exercise control.

The area of ​​the Suppa kingdom during the reign of the Dutch East Indies was the Onder Afdeling Pinrang area where there were six whitewater tungke (single government) consisting of the kingdoms of Suppa, Sawitto, Alitta, Letta, Batu Lappa, and Kassa.

Until the time of Indonesia’s independence and Pinrang was determined as a Level II area, namely Pinrang Regency.
