History of the kingdom, 1675-1725

During the reign of Maharaja Lela Utama, the royal capital was moved to the Nilo River. This kingdom was called the Kingdom of Tanjung Negeri. After his death, Maharaja Lela Utama was succeeded by his son, Maharaja Wangsa Jaya (1686-1691).
During the reign of Maharaja Wangsa Jaya, many areas of Tanjung Negeri were attacked by epidemic diseases, killing many people. Nevertheless, the royal authorities did not want to move the royal center from Tanjung Negeri. Maharaja Wangsa Jaya died and was succeeded by his son, Maharaja Muda Lela (1691-1720). At this time, the desire to move the royal center from Tanjung Negeri has not yet been agreed by the royal authorities.
