Karaeng Haji Ali Mallongbasi of Sanrabone

Sanrabone is a little principality south of Makassar. In the makassar,or Gowa area there were several little principalities founded by high, or lower descendants of a Gowa sultan.Sanrabone is descended from a high prince. In ca. 1860 the principalities in this area mostly lost their indirect monarchy rule and became regencies; ruled however still by the dynasties.
Sanrabone principality was for a time under the sway of Gowa,of course later made a bit more independent by Holland. The dynasty was quite a lot intermarried with the Gowa dynasty, so that several rajas of sanrabone also were Sultans of Gowa.
The present Karaeng of sanrabone was insrtalled shortly after this picture was taken. He has a special coloured belt with blocks around his waist. That means in Bugis/Makasarese royal world, that he is a Monarch.
