The consort to the Sultan of Johor is styled as Sultanah of Johor. The current Sultanah of Johor is HRH Raja Zarith Sofia ibni Almarhum Sultan Idris Shah.


HISTORY

Sultanate of Johor is the descendant of the former Sultanate of Malacca. In its peak, the Sultanate of Johor covers the area of Negeri Sembilan, Pahang, Singapura and Riau Archipelago. The Sultanate of Johor was founded by Sultan Alauddin Riayat Shah II, the son of Sultan Mahmud of Malacca. The Sultanate of Johor has been ruled by 3 dynasties, the descendent of Malacca royalty, the Bendahara and the Temenggung dynasties.

The history of Modern Johor started with the downfall of the Johor-Riau Empire after the death of Sultan Mahmud III. The succession dispute arise between the two Princes of Sultan Mahmud III, Tengku Hussein and Tengku Abdul Rahman. Tengku Hussein was absent during the funeral of Sultan Mahmud III, thus, Tengku Abdul Rahman was proclaimed as the new Sultan. Stamford Raffles, in his attempt to gain a British Settlement in Singapore orchestrated the English-Dutch Treaty resulted the Empire to split into two, the Riau-Lingga Archipelago under Sultan Abdul Rahman and Singapore and the mainland Johor to Sultan Hussein. After the death of Sultan Hussein in 1835, his first son succeeded the throne as Sultan Muhammad Ali.

British who resides in Singapore are in favour of Temenggung Tun Ibrahim as the ruler of Johor. Thus, in 1855, Sultan Ali signed a treaty of handing over the sovereignty to Temenggung Tun Ibrahim as the Ruler of Johor with exception of the Kesang District, which is still under the rule of Sultan Muhammad Ali. In the same year, Temenggung Tun Ibrahim was installed as the ruler of Johor with the title as Maharaja of Johor. He founded Bandar Iskandar Puteri located at Tanjung Puteri (present day Johor Bahru) as the new Capital. The peninsular of Johor prosper under the ruled of Tun Ibrahim, the Maharaja of Johor. Nevertheless, the condition is not the same with Sultan Ali who failed to establish his authority in the Kesang District. With the death of Sultan Ali in 1877, an 11-year old Tengku Mahmood became his successor. And the Kesang District was handed over temporarily to the administration Temenggung Abu Bakar, Maharaja of Johor.

Tengku Alam Shah, an heir of Sultan Ali refused the hand-over of Kesang District by Colonel Archibald Anson to Temenggung Abu Bakar. The event trigger the civil war of Johor known as the Jementah War, as the first attack made by Tengku Alam and his follower was Jementah and winning the battle. A headsman of Jementah sent report to the Government of Johor. Thus, as counter attack, Maharaja Abu Bakar sent his cousin, Ungku Ahmad to led the army. Later, Datuk Muhammad Salleh bin Perang, the Datuk Bentara Luar was also sent to the battlefield to assist the government army which consist of about 400 men. The Government Army conquered the enemy stronghold and achieving total victory at the dawn of 30 December 1879. With the won of the war, a new town known as Bandar Maharani was founded by Maharaja Abu Bakar in the Muar District. In 1885, Maharaja Abu Bakar was proclaimed as Sultan of Johor and officially crowned on 29th July 1886. Thus, Sultan Abu Bakar was known as the Father of Modern Johor.

Johor also is the only state in Malaysia to have its own army, Askar Timbalan Setia Negeri, Johor Military Force (JMF) which currently serves as the private army to the Sultan of Johor.

i looked up on the royal family's blog because the sultanah of johor, wrote a fine article on tolerance.
this being the first time i read up on the royal family of johor. i was somewhat disappointed that the grammar is so glaringly wrong. please correct the grammar as this is not someone ordinary. i wonder with amazement, aren't there proof readers for blogs [for VIPS) as there are for books and other publications?

Bro, biarkanlah mamat nama zuwairi tu. Dia kata jgn cerita kehebatan dunia, tapi dari segi cara dia bercakap.. nampak sangat dia jealous dengan kemewahan orang lain.

Kalau dia dapat RM1,000,000.00, ko rasa dia belanja duit tu ke mana? Dia bagi sedekah kat orang lain ke agak2? Takkan punyer... so.. biarkan jer sudah~~
