Sultan Syarif Abubakar Alkadri of Pontianak

The Pontianak sultanate in W-Kalimantan only exists relative shortly: since 1772.
Then a businessman and descendant of the islamreligion founder Muhammad from S-Yemen; with contacts in several Kalimantan royal families, took a strategic area, which wasn't occupated because the people said was haunted by the spirits of mother, who died when given birth to babies.
Soon Pontianak became a sort of Singapore for W-Kalimantan and the dynasty now still is much occupied in business. It is also the main dynasty of W-Kalimantan in the field of political ambitious feelings.
In WW II all the kings at least of W-Kalimantan were murdured by the Japanese occupationforces, because being afriad, that the kings would work together again strongly with Holland. The present Sultan is son of the former crownprince, who also was killed in 1944.
The present Sultan is now married with a 2nd queen after the death of his first queen.
Pontianak is also called as the Venetia of W-Kalimantan and is actually an immigrants sultanate; consisted of several big group of peoples, who made agreements about the system of the state some centuries ago and where the sultan always worked closely together with the several peoples. He is the 9th sultan of Pontianak.

It is noted that Sherif Abubakar is only a titular sultan. What are his responsibilities now, and what has he achieved?
