The Head of the Royal House of Maharaja Adinda Aranan, H.R.H. Datu Muhammidul’ Ali Al-Mahmun Arunan, PBMM etc. has bestowed the Second Class Medal and title of Datu Panglima in the Supreme Order of Aranan upon me. This follows my earlier appointment as Datu Paduka in the Grand Order of Sultan Bantilan Muizuddin in 2016.
The Royal House is descended from Sultan Bantilan Muizuddin, who ruled as Sultan of Sulu between 1748 and 1763. The Sultanate of Sulu includes parts of the present-day Philippines and Brunei, and reigned between 1405 and 1915.
