Summary[ edit ] The beginning part of the story elaborates on the stories of kings and the founding of their kingdoms based on myths, legends or fantastical folk stories, whether its origins are indigenous or influenced by Hindu or Islamic elements. The royal fleet of Merong Mahawangsa, on its way of sailing from Rome to China, was suddenly attacked by a legendary giant phoenix called Garuda. He crashed into the shores of what is now Kedah. He returned to Rome after his son Raja Merong Mahapudisat was enthroned.
Langkasuka eventually changed its name to the Kedah Zamin Turan. Guided by the advice given by his father, Mahapudisat would later divide the Kingdom into three; Kingdom of Siam to his eldest son, Kingdom of Perak to his second and Kingdom of Pattani to his youngest.
Raja Seri Mahawangsa began the tradition of sending " flowers of gold and silver " as gifts to the Siamese King every time he bore a son. Raja Seri Mahawangsa dies of a broken heart upset with his son who was disobedient of the order.
His son succeeded him with the title of Raja Seri Inderawangsa. When the king was overthrown by his subjects due to his wickedness, his son was enthroned with the title of Raja Phra Ong Mahapudisat. We still can find the antique and god statue of Chola Dynasty in Kedah. The Kedahan royal family that rules to this day traces their lineages back to Pahhra Ong Mahawangsa, and thus Merong Mahawangsa.
He is said to be a descendant to Alexander the Great. He was a Hindu king. He was later succeeded by his eldest son, Merong Mahapudisat. Merong then left to Rome, leaving his son the ruler of Langkasuka.
He was the eldest son. Legends say that he was also the first king of Siam. He was the second eldest in the family. He founded the Gangga Negara kingdom. She is the youngest daughter in the family. She was also the first ruler of Pattani. He was called "Raja Bersiong" or the Fanged King because of his cannibalistic behaviour of drinking human blood. He was the successor of Seri Mahawangsa, but because of his behaviour, the ministers of the kingdom had no choice but to revolt against him.
He fled to Mount Jerai , where he remained hidden for a long time and later had a son, who was called Phra Ong Mahapudisat. In popular culture[ edit ] KD Mahawangsa is a vessel of the Royal Malaysian Navy named in honour of the first monarch. Raja Bersiong was a Malay-language film based on the legend of the sixth monarch and his alleged cannibalism.
