TERSIMPAN SEJARAH KESULTANAN NEGARA ATJEH

SEJARAH KESULTANAN NEGARA ATJEH

 
ATJEH SUMATRA,  GOLD ALA-ADDIN RIAYAT SYAH 1568-1575 AD XF!

REMEMBERING ATCHEH...

"I am the mighty ruler of the Regions below the wind, who holds sway over the land of Atcheh and over the land of Sumatra and over all the lands tributary to Atcheh, which stretch from the sunrise to the sunset". This extract, from a letter sent by the Sultan of Atcheh to Queen Elizabeth I of England in 1585, marked the beginning of a trade agreement between Atcheh and England that lasted until the 19th century.

Atjeh or Aceh was a great Islamic empire at that time. In 1564 the they conquered the state of Johore . The state of Pahang was captured in 1617, followed by Kedah in 1619 and Perak in 1620 which all became vassal states of the Empire of Aceh. The Acehnese gold coins were accepted and widely used by merchants in Malacca. And finally the Aceh empire collapsed in 1641 and thus lost its foothold in the Malay Peninsula.

According to the Chinese records, "During the period Wan Li (1573-1619) the reigning family was twice changed, and at last their king was a slave. At first the master of this slave was one of the great dignitaries of the kingdom and commander of the troops. The slave was treacherous and cunning, first his master ordered him to take care of the elephants. An evil whispering by his slave, the slave slew the king, and then his master usurped the throne and let his slave do whatever he choose. He gave him the command of the army and not long afterwards the slave killed his master and put himself in his place.He then took great precautions; he enlarged the palace and made six doors to it, which nobody could enter without permission and even the high officers were not allowed to come to the audience hall with their swords........ After the murder of the king, the name of the country was changed into Atjeh".

And this is an example of Gold Dinar or Coupang coin from the Atjeh Sultanate under the period of Sultan Alaudin Riayat Syah (1568-1575).
The Chinese accounts in 1416 told that "The golden coins are called dinar. In trading they make much use of tin money...".

ATJEH SUMATRA, GOLD ISKANDAR MUDA 1607-1636 AD

THE GREATEST SULTAN OF ATJEH, ISKANDAR MUDA !!

Sultan Iskandar Muda established Atjeh for a short time as the major power of the western archipelago. His successes were based upon impressive military power, including a navy dominated by heavy galleys which carried 600-800 men, a cavalry force which included Persan horses amoing it mounts, an elephant corps, substantial artilerry, and conscript infantry forces.

In 1612 he took Seli, and in 1613 Aru. In 1613 he attacked and defeated Johor, carrying away to Atjeh Johor's Sultan Alauddin Riayat Syah II (1597-1613) and other members of the royal family, as well as a group of VOC traders. In 1614 he defeated a Portuguese fleet at Bintan; in 1617 he took Pahang and carried off its Sultan Ahmad Syah; in 1620 Kedah was conquerred; in 1623 he again sacked the Johor capital; and in 1624/25 he took Nias.

In 1629 Iskandar Muda sent an expedition of several hundred ships against Mallaca which was owned by Portuguese, but it was entirely devastated. It was reported by the Portuguese that all his ships and 19,000 men were lost. Thereafter Iskandar Muda Launched only two more seaborne expeditions, in 1630/1 and 1635, both against ervolts in Pahang. It could be said that the state of Atjeh under Iskandar Muda was in the Golden Age Period.
