History of the kingdom

Around 1741, the deliberations of the adat stakeholders initiated by Petta Nompo and Mattupuang Petta Kelo agreed jointly to be united by establishing a small kingdom, which was subordinate to the Kingdom of Mangkau Bone which was later named “UJUNG LOE”;  this was the beginning of Akkarungeng ri Ujung Loe.

With the support of the Dutch East Indies Colonial at that time Edge Loe officially became a Kingdom, and Mattuppuang Petta Kelo Bin Massalomo Petta Nompo was officially inducted into Arung (King I) at Ujung Loe.

Begin of the sixteenth century was the beginning of the development of small kingdoms in Bulukumba in terms of economy, defense and, as well, could exercise their power so well as ruler of the kingdom. It’s just that threats and challenges often come and go.
The first kingdom in Bulukumba was Kajang Amma Toa. There are some other small kingdoms in Bulukumba.
Some of these small kingdoms in Bulukumba were:
* Kingdom of Tanete,
* Kingdom of (Gantarang) Kindang,
* Kingdom of Hero Langnge-langnge,
* Kingdom of Ujung Loe,
Kingdom of Kajang,
* Kingdom of Tiro,
* kerajaan Ara Bontohari.

In the 16th-17th century the kingdom of Bone and the kingdom of Gowa fought in the seizure of power territory ie bangkeng buki ‘area, which is in the area of Bulukumba now.
Finally, these two kingdoms re-reconcile and supported the kings in Bulukumba to maintain their territories.
Because they already know the cunning of the Dutch and its allies, they pitted all the kings to fight each other. Because the Dutch thought if all the kingdom were united, it is more difficult to master them.
