There is no denying the fact the current Johor Sultan is a descendant of the Bugis Temenggong, who was commoner and not of the rightful Sultan Ali, a Malay, who was simply sidelined by the British.

 

SO much has been written and discussed about the origins of the present Johor royalty and sultanate over the past few days.

The one fact that stands out is that they are the descendants of the Temenggong, a commoner of Bugis descent, who had usurped the reins of power in Johor from the rightful ruler, Sultan Ali.

He was not recognised by the British, who already had eyes for Johor at that time, thus, their support for the Temenggong and in the process fulfilling their desire of controlling the area.

Therefore, there is no denying the fact the current Johor Sultan is a descendant of the Bugis Temenggong, who was commoner and not of the rightful Sultan Ali, a Malay, who was simply sidelined by the British.

This is a fact of history that is undeniable. It proves that the current Johor Sultan is actually a descendant of the treacherous commoner Temenggong who had usurped the reigns of the Sultan.

Thus, I had previously asked where the regal prefix ‘Tengku’ or ‘Tunku’ in the names of the Johor royals come from?
