Calon, Sultan Muhammad Abdurahman Daeng Raja Dewa

Sumbawa, Calon, Sultan Muhammad Abdurahman Daeng Raja Dewa

Also called Daeng Muhammad Ab Calon, Sultan Muhammad Abdurahman Daeng Raja Dewadurahman Kaharuddin. He is the only son of the last ruling Sultan of Sumbawa and only has daughters, so probably he will be succeeded in due time by a grandson. This monarch is a rare example (together with for instance the Raja of Kupang on Timor) of a king, who says, that to serve his people is the main thing in his life and to be installed in glorious festivities as king of Sumbawa is a thing of later importance. Also he was in that field active in real politics and tried in 2005 to become Bupati of Sumbawa and even later to become Governor of Nusa Tenggara barat Province,but for that you already must have a political development locally.
He is former bankdirector and has a quite pilosophical mind.
Also one of the few Indonesian kings,who has a real crown.
The main royalty of the Sumbawa island are all family of each other.
The Sumbawa kingdom like some other big kingdoms in Indonesia already exists for several centuries.
In Sumbawa the Buginese and Makassarese influence from SW Sulawesi and family links also are quite big.
