Terengganu Royal Family

Assalamualaikum and Peace be upon all of you..
Welcome to my blog.

Royalty segment for this month will cover about Terengganu Royal Family. The Ruler of Terengganu is styled as HRH Sultan of Terengganu.

The current Sultan of Terengganu is HRH Sultan Mizan Zainal Abidin al-Wathiqu Billah ibni al-marhum Sultan Mahmud Al-Muqtafi Billah Shah. He is the 16th Sultan of Terengganu. His reign started since 1998.

The consort to the Ruler of Terengganu is styled as HRH Tengku Ampuan Besar. The current holder is Rozita binti Adil Bakeri. After her husband is proclaimed Sultan of Terengganu, she was accorded the title Permaisuri Nur Zahirah. In 2006, she is styled as HRH Sultanah Nur Zahirah as the Sultan's wishes.


The Royal house of Trengganu represents one of the junior male lines of the Bendahara family of Johor. They trace their descent from one Aidarus of Aceh, in Sumatra, a Sayyid originating from the Hadramaut in Southern Arabia. His descendants came to rule over four different states, Johor, Trengganu and Pahang in Malaysia and Lingga in Indonesia. In 1717, Zainal-Abidin, the younger brother of the Sultan 'Abdu'l Jalil IV Ri'ayat Shah of Johor established control over the eastern provinces of the kingdom with the title of Maharaja. He secured recognition as the first Sultan of Trengganu from his nephew Sultan Sulaiman I Badr ul-'Alam Shah of Johor in 1725.

His descendants claim to be the senior male-line descendants of the Johor sultans, and thus the rightful heirs to the honours of that kingdom.
