ABOUT SUCCESSION OF
THE TITLE
OF SULTAN OF SULU









Dedicated to
His Majesty
Muedzul Lail Tan Kiram
35th Sultan of Sulu
Head of the Royal House of
The Sultanate of Sulu






   We are witnessing numerous attempts to relativize the process of succession of title of Sultan in the Sultanate of Sulu. These attempts are constantly being launched by a number of self-styled Sultans, pretenders to the throne of this island monarchy.1

   Firstly, we will consider practice of succession of this title in the Sultanate of Sulu, during the 20th century. Older examples from the rich history of the Sultanate will not be considered, primarily because of the fact, that they were very similar to examples from the 20th century.2

   In the beggining of the 20th century, Sulanate of Sulu was under the leadership of Sultan Jamalul Kiram II, who ruled between 1894. and 1936. He had only daughters, who came to adulthood.3

   After the death of Sultan Jamalul Kiram II, his brother Muvallil Wasit II was declared Sultan. Until then, he was the Crown Prince. He, however, died in the same year (1936), before he was formally crowned.4

   In the period 1937 - 1950, there were several pretenders to the throne of the Sultanate of Sulu. One of them was Amirul Umara I, supported by the Japanese. He was the son in law of Sultan Jamalul Kiram II (husband of his adopted daughter Piandao). The second was Jainal Abirin. He was supported by the American forces.5

   Sultan Moh. Esmail Kiram I was the eldest son of Sultan Muvallil Wasit II. He was Crown Prince, before coming to the throne. He was leader of the Sultanate of Sulu in the period of 24 years, between 1950. and 1974. He was recognized by the Philippine Government.6

   In 1974, after the death of Sultan Moh. Esmail I Kiram, the throne was succeeded by his eldest son, Sultan Moh. Mahakuttah Kiram. During the reign of his father, Mahakuttah Kiram was the Crown Prince.7

   At the time of the coronation of Sultan Moh. Mahakuttah Kiram, his eldest son, Muedzul Lail Tan Kiram, was proclaimed Crown Prince Sultanate of Sulu. The former Philippine president Ferdinand Marcos, by special decree, confirmed the coronation of the new Sultan and the appointment of the new heir to the throne. There are documents concerning this event, that have been published on the official website of the Sultanate of Sulu, and in recent times they have been mentioned in the official Gazette of the Republic of Philippines.8

   Sultan Moh. Mahakuttah Kiram died in 1986. At that moment, Muedzul Lail Tan Kiram should to come to the throne, both regarding his inheritance right of the first born Sultan's son, as well as his appointment as the Crown Prince in 1974. However, due to the unstable political situation in the country, and because of his youth, the official coronation didn’t happened at that time. Then, as well as in the following years and decades, appeared some people with unfounded claims of Sulu sultan's throne.9

   Some of these self-proclaimed pretenders were of the royal blood, and members of Kiram dynasty, like Datu (Prince) Fuad Kiram, Jamalul Kiram III, or Esmail Kiram II. Others were born in families that were not of royal or noble ancestry, but anyway they stated their claim to throne.10

   This situation has formally ended when, in 16 September 2012, took place the traditional coronation of the legal heir to the throne of the Sultanate of Sulu, Sultan Muedzul Lail Tan Kiram.11

   Even after the historic act of coronation of Sultan Muedzul Lail Tan Kiram, which was supported by the Royal Council (Ruma Bichara), imams of the Islamic community of Sulu, local leaders and people Sulu, some self-proclaimed pretenders have not given up their claims to the Sultan title.12

   Using his legitimate right, Sultan Muedzul Lail Tan Kiram established, in accordance with the old traditions of the Sultanate, the Royal and Hashemite Order of Pearl. This Order has been recognized in international royal, aristocratic and expert circles. Among its numerous prominent members we will mention only a few: King of Bunyoro-Kitara Solomon Iguru I, King of Rwanda Kigeli V, Head of the Royal House of Portugal Duarte Pio of Braganza, Head of the Royal House of Georgia David Bagration, Ethiopian Imperial Prince Ermias Sahle Selassie, members of some royal and princely houses, like Karageorgevich and Habsburg, princes of Afghanistan, Egypt, Hyderabad, as well as others. Among members of this Order is also former Polish president and Nobel Prize winner, Lech Walesa.13

   Some relevant international organizations, such as the International Commission for Orders of Chivalry, Augustan Society and others, clearly recognized Muedzul Lail Tan Kiram as the sole legitimate Sultan of Sulu and the only person in the Sultanate, who now has the right to establish chivalric orders (orders of datuship).14

   Unlike the Royal and Hashemite Order of the Pearl, some fictitious "titles" and "orders" are promoted by self-proclaimed pretenders. These are named mainly on the pseudo – European bases, not accordingly the traditions of Sulu. These self-proclaimed pretenders are not legitimate holders of the title of Sultan or chief of the royal House of Kiram, so they have no right for such actions. Their so-called "titles" and "orders" are not recognized by any of relevant international organisations.15

   Sultan Muedzul Lail Tan Kiram is recognized and respected by members of many of the world's dynasties. He is also the holder of a significant number of foreign decorations. Among them, there are Orders awarded by the royal houses of: Bunyoro-Kitara (Uganda), Georgia, Rwanda, Vietnam and Ethiopia.16

   Considering all that is mentioned, it is clear that the only true and legitimate Sultan of Sulu is Muedzul Lail Tan Kiram. As the eldest son of the last undeniable Sultan of Sulu, Moh. Mahakuttah Kiram, he is the only legitimate claimant to the throne of his late father. Furthermore, in his early age, at the time of his father's coronation, he was appointed as Crown Prince. All legitimate sultans of Sulu in the 20th century were firstly bearers of this title. His appointment was confirmed by the Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos. Also, the sultan Muedzul Lail Tan Kiram is grandson of Sultan Moh. Esmail I Kiram, and great-grandson of Sultan Muvallil Wasit II. He was crowned as Sultan of Sulu on 16 September 2012, with the support and approval of the Royal Council, the imams of the Islamic community of Sulu and people of Sulu. These are the facts, intentionally relativized by self-proclaimed pretenders to the throne of the Sultanate and by their followers, because of their own interests.
