History of the kingdom

The Loleh Kingdom is a kingdom of 19 kingdoms on Rote Island. Mastered by Termanu in 1730.
Rote was formerly known as “Lolo Neo Do Tenu Hatu” some of them called it “Nes Do Male” or “Lino Do Nes” which means a deserted and uninhabited island. The name or designation of Rote originated from the arrival of Portuguese traders and missionary activities in Indonesia from 1512 to 1605.
Loleh came under the rule of Termanu in 1730.

19 Kingdoms on Rote

Rote Island is an island of Indonesia, part of the East Nusa Tenggara province of the Lesser Sunda Islands.

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.
