History of the kingdom

Baa is one of the 19 principalities of Rote islands and also the capital of the Rote/Ndao district.`This Raja, or manek is one of the few dynastychiefs, who is installed officially as Raja of his area. Most of the others are just chief of the clan of the raja dynasty.
Like in some other Rote principalities the dynasty has several branches.
For at time the raja was the royal face of Rote,`because no other rajas were installed.
In Baa was also the son of the first and last raja of Rote,`who ruled for some decades before World War II. He lives in a palace. This Prince Wilson Kedoh’s father was asked to become the union raja of total Rote. Because no raja wanted to give in, when giving that dignity to a raja, the dignity was given to a Fettor dynasty member of Landu.

Rote Island is an island of Indonesia, part of the East Nusa Tenggara province of the Lesser Sunda Islands. According to legend, this island got its name accidentally when a lost Portuguese sailor arrived and asked a farmer where he was. The surprised farmer, who could not speak Portuguese, introduced himself, “Rote”.
The Rote tribe is one of the original inhabitants of Rote Island, some of whom are also settled on Timor Island. In addition, the Rote tribe also inhabit the islands around the island of Rote, namely Ndao Island, Nuse Island, Pamana Island, Doo Island, Heliana Island, Landu Island, Manuk Island, and other small islands. There are experts who argue, that the Rote people had previously migrated from Seram Island in Maluku.
