Pahang Royal Family

Assalamualaikum and Peace be upon all of you..
Thanks for viewing my blog.

Royalty sections for today will covered about the Pahang Royal Family. Ruler of Pahang is style as HRH Sultan of Pahang.

The current Sultan of Pahang is HRH Sultan Ahmad Shah ibni Almarhum Sultan Abu Bakar Riayatuddin Shah. He is the 5th Sultan of Modern Pahang. His reign start since 1974.

The consort of Sultan of Pahang is style as Tengku Ampuan Pahang, but the current consort is styled as Sultanah of Pahang. The current consort is HRH Sultanah Kalthom.


The history of the Sultanate of Pahang can be traced back since the early pre-islamic era. It is founded as a vassal state to the Sultanate of Malacca, later became a territory of the Sultanate of Johor before becoming an independence Sultanate in 1861. In early age, the State is known as Inderapura. Since its foundation in 1470, the State has been ruled by two dynasty, the descendant of Malaccan Royalty and the Johorean House of Bendahara.

The history of modern Pahang started almost significantly with the fall of Johor-Riau Empire. After the line of Malaccan Royalty as the ruler of Pahang ended with the Acheh's invasion, the Johorean House of Bendahara takes control over the land. Thus, Pahang became a territory of Johor-Riau Empire centered in the south. The House of Bendahara later control the dominion with a ruler from the family, known as the Bendahara of Pahang. Even though the dominion does not received direct conflict between Sultan Ali from the House of Bendahara and Temenggung Ibrahim from the House of Temenggung to get the Johorean throne, it still play a major role. In 1861, a mutual agreement was signed between Temenggung Ibrahim of Johor and Bendahara Tun Mutahir of Pahang, recognizing both remnant of the Empire of Johor-Riau to split into two independent Sultanate.

Earlier in 1847, Bendahara Tun Ali retired and transferred his power and authority to Tun Mutahir. Tun Mutahir previously has married to Che Puan Lingga in 1832, and thus was invested the title as the Bendahara Muda of Lingga. Tun Ahmad is among his son produced by the marriage. But in 1857, Bendahara Tun Ali signed a death sentenced to Tun Ahmad. The event resulted Tun Ahmad to flee to Singapore. Tun Ahmad returned to Pahang after the death of Bendahara Tun Ali, only to trigger a conflict with Bendahara Tun Mutahir. The conflict resulted a civil war known as the Pahangite Bendahara War. The conflict also received a political intervention from the Sultan of Terengganu, Johorean House of Temenggung and British. The conflict only come to an end with the death of Bendahara Tun Mutahir in 1863, and Tun Ahmad was hailed as the new Bendahara of Pahang. With the advised from the Sultan of Johor, Bendahara Tun Ahmad proclaimed himself as the Sultan of Pahang, Sultan Ahmad Al-Mu'adzam Shah in 1884, thus becoming the first Sultan of modern Pahang. The current Pahang Royal Family is the descendant of Sultan Ahmad.

saya nk tnya, kenapa Tengku Fahd tk bnyk sngt news eh?

Radin87 said...

@anonymous ::

Antara sebab-sebab Tengku Fahd kurang dapat liputan media :-

i) Tengku Fahd belajar di England. jadi, kebanyakan masanya kurang di Malaysia.
ii) Jauh dari segi kekananan untuk pewarisan tahta. Liputan lebih tertumpu kepada Tengku Mahkota Abdullah dan anaknya, Tengku Hassanal Ibrahim.

Tengku Hassanal is the most humble prince you can get. He is different than the others, he understands what the people needs and he respects all races and does not judge them. In my own opinion, the people of pahang will have the greatest king of their time in the future. He has many plans to help the poor, the needy and the unfortunate ones and to richen pahang in many ways that will benefit the people, not for the important ones.

Cik Julia Rais has three daughters. They were remarkably beautiful. Iman is the most. You can see three of them in Iman's Facebook because she upload few of their photos public. Just search for Iman Abdullah. Also couple of photo when she was a little kid with her mom and dad. Beautiful.

@tiada nama

Yang berkahwin dengan Puteri Suraiya itu adalah Tengku Amer Nasser. Anak angkat kepada Tengku Mahkota Abdullah dan Tengku Puan.

Namun sejak lahir, Tengku Amer Nasser ni memang kerabat diraja Pahang juga. Tengku Abdullah jaganya selepas ayahanda kandungnya mangkat.
