Hello everyone! My name is Rhys and I am from the Philippines. Let me share you some of the facts I know about the Royalty in our country a long time ago:

This is a picture of the Laguna Copperplate Inscription:
http://www.mts.net/~pmorrow/pictures/lciphoto.gif
Article about the Inscription:
http://www.mts.net/~pmorrow/lcieng.htm

The Laguna Copperplate Inscription is an ancient steele that was found in 1989 near the mouth of the Lumbang River near Laguna de Bay by a man who was dredging to sand to turn into concrete. The man later sold it to an antique dealer, thinking that the artifact might have some value. When no one wants to but it, the antique dealer eventually sold it to the National Museum of the Philippines.

A year later, the Dutch Anthropologist and Mangyan language expert, Antoon Postma, who is also a long-time resident of the Philippines, was at the National Museum, and he noticed that the letters written in the Inscription has a similarity to the Kavi script, an ancient script from Indonesia. Postma, with the help of fellow Dutchman, Dr. Johann de Casparis, translated the script and found that the document dated itself to the Saka year 822, in the old Hindu calendar or the year 900 C.E. (common era) on our calendar.

The language written on the Inscription was a mixture of Sanskrit, Old Javanese, Old Malay and Old Tagalog, and the writing method was different. The document mentions the places of Tondo, Pila and Pulilan in the area around the Manila Bay and Mdan (or rather, the Javanese Kingdom of Medang) in Indonesia.

The discovery of the Inscription proves that there are cultural links between the Tagalog-speaking people of this time and various contemporary civilizations in Asia.

********
According to Wikipedia, the Capital City of the Philippines, Manila, is mentioned in the Laguna Copperplate Inscription. According to it, Manila is described as an Indianized Kingdom maintaining diplomatic relations with the Kingdom of Mdan (Medang) and commercial exchanges with Ancient Japan and Song Dynasty China.

The city was invaded by Brunei's Sultan Bolkiah and was already Islamized by the 15th Century when the Spanish first arrived. Manila was first known as Gintu (Land of Gold) or Suvarnadvipa by its neighboring provinces, and was officially the Kingdom of Maynila (Maynila is the Tagalog name for the City of Manila and is still used to call the City).

The Kingdom of Maynila flourished during the latter half of the Ming Dynasty as a result of trade relations with China. Ancient Tondo was maintained as the traditional capital of the empire. Its rulers were equivalent to kings and not mere chieftains, and they were addressed as panginuan or panginoon ("lords"), anak banwa ("son of heaven") or lakandula ("lord of the palace"). During the 13th century, the city consisted of a fortified settlement and trading quarter at the shores of the Pasig River, on top of previous older towns.

There is also early evidence of Manila being invaded by the Indianized empire of Majapahit, due to the epic eulogy poem Nagarakretagama which inscribed its conquest by Maharaja Haram Wuruk. Saludong or Selurong which is a historical name for the city of Manila is listed in Canto 14 alongside Sulot, which is now Sulu, and Kalka.

During the reign of Sultan Bolkiah in 1485 to 1521, the Sultanate of Brunei decided to break the Dynasty of Tondo's monopoly in the China trade by attacking it and establishing the state of Selurong (now Manila) as a Bruneian satellite-state.
A new dynasty under the Islamized Rajah Salalila, was also established to challenge the House of Lakandula in Tondo. Islam was further strengthened by the arrival to the Philippines of traders and proselytizers from Malaysia and Indonesia. The multiple states that existed in the Philippines simplified Spanish colonization. Manila was temporarily threatened by the invasion of Chinese pirate-warlord Limahong before it became the seat of the colonial government of Spain.

********

I hope this might help, Thank you very much! :))

I discovered something! While I was searching on google, I have found out that Angel Locsin, who is one of the most famous celebrities in the Philippines, is a granddaughter of the Sultan of the Ibaloi Tribe here in the Philippines!

Here is a photo of Angel Locsin:

These are the pictures of the Holy Infant of Cebu, known in Spanish as Señor Santo Niño de Cebú. The Holy Infant of Cebu is a Catholic Statue of the Child Jesus venerated in the Basilica Minore del Santo Niño de Cebu in Cebu City, Philippines, for centuries. It is the oldest venerated image of Jesus Christ in the Philippines. The statue was a gift from Ferdinand Magellan to the Queen of Cebu (then known as Sugbo), Hara Amihan, who was renamed Queen Juana or Johanna as a mark of her conversion to Christianity, in 1521. Queen Juana's husband is the Kingof Sugbo (Cebu), Rajah Humabon, who is also converted into Christianity.

Spend a day with the royal family of Siak Regency in Riau, Indonesia, and you might know how Cinderella feels.

The Antique Catholic Image of the Ecce Homo (or the Image of Jesus Christ when he was brought by Pontius Pilate to be seen by the public right after he had him whipped), which was Ferdinand Magellan's gift to the King of Cebu, Rajah Humabon, upon his conversion to Christianity, made its historic return to Cebu, on August 20, 2011, after more than 40 years of staying at Intramuros, Manila:

All sizes | Welcome Delegation at Cebu Airport | Flickr - Photo Sharing!

Here is an old picture of the Ecce Homo (circa 1965), you can see that he is wearing a crown of thorns, and he has no color. That's because when he arrived in Intramuros, Manila, they decided to change his look; the crown of thorns was removed and his wounds were fixed, and metal Tres Potencias, or rays of light, were added above his head. They also put color on his image. This is his original look when Ferdinand Magellan gave him to Rajah Humabon:

And this is how his image looks like now:

Yogyakarta's Royal Groom-to-be: 'Never Dreamed I'd Marry a Princess'

Next week Yogyakarta will witness the royal wedding of Princess Gusti Raden Ajeng Nur Astuti Wijareni,
5th and youngest daughter of Sultan Hamengkubuwono X, and Achmad Ubaidillah, age 29.


The wedding, set to take place on Oct. 18 with 4,000 guests in attendance, coincides with the city’s 255th anniversary celebration.
Wijareni, fondly known as Reni to her family and friends, has been in a relationship with Ubaidillah or Ubai for more than four years. Ubai, a staff member at the vice president’s political communication division, was introduced to Reni by her older sister.

As a future member of the royal family, Ubai was given the royal title of KPH Yudanegara or the equivalent of a prince.

The royal wedding has been highly anticipated by the public and the media with stations reportedly planing special broadcasts from Yogyakarta. The rituals for the wedding will start on Oct. 16 and peak with the bride and groom being paraded around town in a horse-drawn carriage.

Indonesia Readies for Royal Wedding
The royal wedding has been highly anticipated, with hundreds of foreign and local journalists set to cover the event and TV stations reportedly planning special broadcasts from Yogyakarta. Royal wedding party coordinator Yudhadiningrat said that there would be 1,500 guests during the first reception and 1,000 attendees during the evening reception. “I divided the reception into two sessions. President Susilo Bambang Yudhyono will come to the first reception and the vice president will come in the afternoon,” he said.

An Indonesian princess married her prince on Tuesday in the historical sultanate of Yogyakarta.

Princess Nurastuti Wijareni, 25, married 29-year-old Achmad Ubaidillah in a traditional Javanese-Muslim ceremony attended by more than 2,000 guests that included the Indonesian president.

Yogyakarta, around 400 kilometres southeast of Jakarta in the centre of Java island, is one of Indonesia's last remaining sultanates, where the Sultan acts also as the special region's governor.
The groom, a commoner, works at the office of Indonesia's vice president.
[...]
Tens of thousands lined the streets in the afternoon to greet the couple, who were married at the sultan's 200-year-old palace in a ceremony led by the bride's father, Sultan Hamengkubuwono X.
The groom arrived in a traditional horse-drawn Javanese carriage and sat next to his bride, as they recited their marriage vows before the Sultan.

An earring possibly belonging to Lapu-Lapu, the Datu of Mactan Island in Cebu, Philippines, was featured in the TV Documentary "Philippine Treasures" last September 11, 2011. Here is a picture of the earring:

Let me share this to all of you, the Princesses of the Pre-Hispanic Philippines are called Binukot. Binukots are daughters of Datus, and they are only kept at the Datu's house. Binukots are not allowed to touch the ground, or wander outside.
