Recounting the Memories of the Past
Hi readers and History students,
Sultan Muhyiddin was the 14th Sultan of Brunei and proclaimed himself as the Sultan when Sultan Abdul Hakkul Mubin left Kota Batu to Pulau Chermin. Civil War happened and he sought help from Sultan Sulu to defeat Sultan Abdul Hakkul Mubin. In the end, Sultan Abdul Hakkul Mubin was killed and he ruled Brunei from 1673-1690.
During his reign, he was known for his wisdom, strength and capabilities of uniting the people after the war. In fact he also ordered the issue of Salasilah Raja-Raja Brunei to justify him as the rightful Sultan from the family of Sultan Muhammad Ali. Brunei’s borders at that time were the Sambas River in the West and Sibuku River in the East. In 1690 he died and was known as ‘Marhum Bungsu’.
Here is a picture of Sultan Muhyiddin’s tombstone at Tanah Perkuburan Islam Tarap Besar, BSB.
