Waihale, Liurai Luis-Seneka Tei Serang
|Before the first Portuguese arrived in the sixteenth century, Belu lay at the heart of one of the most influential kingdoms on Timor, Waihale. But as the Bunak had to make way for the Belunese, so the Belunese were in turn to yield to a new intruder.|
Already in the 1940-ies he was ruling,so he was one of the last real rulers from the old time,who still was alive in the 21th century(together with the Sushunan of Surakarta).
This Liurai had his rival in Dominikus Tei Searn in Laran.Both are attached to 2 also rival Emperors of the whole of Timor(theoretically),but in fact nowadays only of Belu-area(Waiwiku Waihale):the Maromak Oans;respectively:A(u)gustinus Nahah Seran and the also in Laran living Agustin Klau(the uncle of his wife).The Maromak Oan title ceased to exist after the abdication of the last Emperor/Maromak Oan Hendrikus Nahak Seran.He was Maromak Oan 1925-1930.But also had become Roman Catholic and in that time the explanation of that function(semi-relgious dignity)didn’t well go together with the Christian Roman Catholic religion.The last Emperor died in 197..
