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

Welcome again to the long lost segment of the Persona. It is a segment specifically published as a biography of our notable royalty here in Malaysia. The segment of Persona currently will not cover the most popular Malaysian Royalty, but will cover all of them. For the first article in the new format, we will cover about Her Highness the Tunku Puan Nora of Johor.

Her Highness Tunku Puan Nora

HH Tunku Puan Nora

Her Highness Tunku Puan Nora of Johor was born as Tengku Nora binti Tengku Ahmad, a descendant of Kelantanese Royal Family. She was born on 10th October 1937, a daughter of Tengku Long Ahmad by her wife Hajah Fatima at Dusun Green, Pasir Mas, Kelantan. She is the elder sister of Sultanah Zanariah of Johor.

On 13th November 1977, she was married to His Royal Highness Sultan Ismail ibni Almarhum Sultan Ibrahim of Johor. She was the third wife of Sultan Ismail. She was officially crowned as Her Royal Highness the Sultanah of Johor on 28th October 1978. The Crown of Sultanah was put by the Mufti of Johor, Datuk Syed Alwee bin Abdullah Al-Hadad.

The marriage does not produce any child. HRH Sultanah Nora serves as the Sultanah of Johor until the death of Sultan Ismail on 10th May 1981. She was never installed as the Raja Permaisuri Agong of Malaysia, because her husband rejected the proposal of becoming the Yang di-Pertuan Agong of Malaysia due to health reasons.

Sultanah of Johor no more

During the reign of her stepson and at the same time, her brother in-law, she legally held the title as Her Royal Highness the Sultanah of Johor. Nevertheless, on 17th February 2011, the new Sultan of Johor, HRH Sultan Ibrahim ibni Almarhum Sultan Iskandar gave his consent to demote the title of Sultanah from her and her younger sister, HRH Sultanah Zanariah of the based that both of them were never officially crowned in an official coronation ceremony. Thus, both of them are addressed as Tunku Puan from that day onward.

Currently, the Tunku Puan Nora lives a quite life at Istana Bukit Serene, Johor Bahru, Johor.
