Dari Donald Tick, FB: Manek Johannis Jeremias Michiel Amalo (1892-1914) of Termanu. Succeding Manek Salmon Pela (1887-1892), who was from a sideline of the dynasty. Manek Johannis Amalo was son of Prince Jeremias Michiel Amalo, who was son of Raja Michiel Amalo (Pelo Keluanan), who was quite an ambitious raja. He ruled 1859-1875. This raja died before really exiled. Then succeeded by his cousin Stephanus Paulus Amalo (until 1887). Manek Johannis because of healthproblems was temporary replaced 31-7-1913 and abdicated 31-7-1914 and probably died in the same year. Maybe Princess Donna Connie Nisnoni knows his exact date of died. His younger brother Raja Muda Christofel JM Amalo was regent-raja for the son of the abdicated raja (Jacob Amalo) until 1941, succeeded by 2 of his sons until 1946. Then the youngest son of him, Ernst JM Amalo, was foremost last ruling raja until 1966. His daughter Princess Regina Amalo married Raja Joel Kedoh of the Rote federasi, his daughter Princess Adeleida Amalo married the raja of Kupang/Timor. Collection: raja dynasty of Kupang.
Dari Donald Tick, FB: Regent-Manek Christoffel Jeremias Michiel Amalo of Termanu (ruled 1914-1941). After healthproblems and later death of his brother Manek Johannnes JM Amalo (1892-1914) he became the regent for the oldest son of his brother: Prince Jacob Amalo. Later on they followed the tradition to install the youngest son of the previous raja: Ernst Amalo. Since 1911 the raja of Termanu was ruler of the Lomakoli federation, that was enlarged in 1916 (-28) to the Rote Telada federation. The federation stayed on for a while in the Rote federation, but in fact the rule of the 19 nusaks/principlaities was reintroduced, within the Rote federation. It was thought to make the Termanu ruler (and other persons) the candidate-rajas of the total federation and the oldest son of Manek Johannis; Prince Jacob, was the strongest candidate, but none of the 19 rajas wished another of the 19 rajas above him.So then another solution was made. He was succeeded as regent by his son Manek Godlief Chr. J.M. Amalo, who was succeeded in 1943 by his brother Manek Albert Chr. J.M. Amalo, who ruled until 1946, when Manek Ernst JJM Amalo came on the throne finally.
