Calon/Candidate-Sultan Abdul Azis Sirajuddin of Dompo

Dompo is the most fertile sultanate of the island of Sumbawa, but also the really left principality, which was most effected by the ereuption of Tambora volcano in 1815: one of the most tragic happenings in Indonesia history.
His to traditional grandfather Sultan Mohammad Sirajuddin was deposed by Holland in 1934 and the sultanate abolished in WW II. But as an example of some other abolished sultanates it was restored again in 1947.
The bigger dynasties on the island are all related.
He is married with a noblewoman from Banten.
Like most of the royalty in Indonesia he has a quite high education.
He keeps quite low profile, but his people knows him.

Calon/Candidate-Sultan Gusti Khairul Saleh of Banjarmasin

He is the big man about revival of Banjarmasin culture including royal culture as well. The Banjarmasin people are know for their sweet character. So he is. He is direct descendant of Brother of last recognized Sultan of Banjarmasin: sultan Adam Alwartzikubillah; a Sultanate, which before was as powerfull as Brunei. In 2005 he was first (candidate) Monarch of Indonesia, who also was chosen in modern time as ruler on old principality, or kingdom.
He is since 2005 Bupati of Banjar; the central part of the Banjarmasin Sultanate.
Maybe he is one of the most dedicated monarch/local ruler to bring back some royal elements in the life of a former kingdom.
He is aquite a religious man in a pleasant way.
Also to revive the good feeling in life with harmony and love for all is one of his ideals.
Let we hope, that this SE Kalimantan area; the area of the diamonds, will flourish under his rule.

Raja Johannis J. Bakker of Kisar

Although the island of Kisar in the SW Moluccans isn't always considered as a principality, you can consider it as such.
He is the 13th raja since the 17th century.
Bakker comes from the name of a Dutch colonial official. His ancestor Raja Cornelis Bakker took that name, because hoped with that name also to become as influental as the Dutch people.
On the island here was a Dutch contigent of soldiers. These Dutchmen ere left behind and forgotten and married with local woman. So a little new people of mixed Dutch-Kisar blood was made. These families later intermarried with the raja dynasty. So the present Raja of Kisar has Dutch blood in his veins to.
On the picture he is depicted with Crownprince Philipus Hairmera Bakker; the son of his younger brother Prince zacharias, because he only has a daughter.
The history of the princpality is sonce old time written down in an impressive book, who is after the Bible the most important book on then island.
The different peoples on the island have some kind of autonomy under their own traditional leaders. The palace of the raja is in the town of Wonreli.
