A battle royal being waged for control of a Malaysian sultanate was exposed Friday after a failed attempt to oust the ailing leader's heir apparent.Uncertainty has plagued the royal family in northern Kelantan state since mid-2009 after Sultan Ismail Petra suffered a heart attack and was hospitalized in neighboring Singapore. The 60-year-old ruler returned to Kelantan last month, but has not been seen in public and his health remains a subject of speculation.
Sultan Ismail's eldest son, Tengku Muhammad Faris Petra, 40, became the acting ruler during his father's absence but apparently feuded with his younger brother, Tengku Muhammad Fakhry. He removed Fakhry from the state's powerful Council of Succession, which determines who ascends to the throne, in September. Fakhry, 31, challenged the move in court, but failed in January to reverse it.

Power play at Kelantan palace
The palace feud in Kelantan is basically a family quarrel except that this is no ordinary family and at stake is the issue of succession to the throne.

Malaysian sultan 'held in hospital against his will'

The Lawyers for an ailing Kelantan's Sultan Tengku Ismail Petra say he is being held against his will since May 4th and have sought a court order to secure his release. - BBC News

The car bearing the Sultan of Kelantan and Raja Perempuan was ambushed mere metres from the Royal Palace by armed men, and guns were aimed at the head of its driver. In shocking claims made in an affidavit filed yesterday, the Sultan’s third son Tengku Temenggong Tengku Muhammad Fakhry Petra (see post #246 in this thread about the prince) said the driver was forcibly dragged out of the vehicle by the men, who were in balaclavas and armed with semi-automatic weapons. - The Star Online

The current Sultan of Johor, also known as Tengku Yem is a big adventure enthusiast. He is also active in 4 x 4 and big bikes expeditions. He is also a people person, going to grass roots making his tour of his subjects and state often, especially during natural disasters during the tsunami and flash floods in Johor, as do his consorts, Raja Zarith Sofia the daughter of the late Sultan Iskandar of Perak. They are both highly educated and Raja Zarith Sofia is also an author and well respected for her comments on politics as well as children' books and philosophy.

Here's a picture from their wedding day with a link.

Right royal end to palace crisis

Sultan Muhammad Faris has ascended the throne after a year of palace intrigues that saw the Kelantan palace making news as never before. It has not been the best of times for the Kelantan royal house which staggered from one controversy to another.
It began with the acrimonious marital break-up of the Sultan’s youngest brother Tengku Muhammad Fakhry and his beautiful Indonesian wife that made headlines in the region.
Then, when his father suffered a stroke, a power struggle broke out between the Sultan and his once-powerful mother, the Raja Perempuan Tengku Anis Tengku Abdul Hamid. - The Star online

New Sultan of Kelantan

No power grab in Kelantan, says constitutional expert

KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 13 – Constitutional law expert Professor Aziz Bari said today that Kelantan Regent Tengku Muhammad Faris Petra’s installation as the state ruler today is constitutional.Aziz dismissed accusations of a power grab in the long-standing Kelantan palace crisis that began after the regent’s father, Sultan Tuanku Ismail Petra Sultan Yahya Petra, suffered a stroke in May last year.

“There is no question of a power grab or that the constitutional monarchy concept has been contravened because what is being done clearly follows the conditions and philosophy underlying that concept,” Aziz told The Malaysian Insider today. “It should have been done earlier on,” he added.

The academic from the International Islamic University stressed that resignations and terminations were “usual” in the constitutional monarchy system, citing instances in Selangor, Perlis and Terengganu after World War II during British rule, as well as in countries like Brunei and the United Kingdom.

Sultan Muhammad V Official Name Of New Kelantan Sultan

KOTA BAHARU, Sept 22, 2010 (Bernama) -- The new sultan of Kelantan, Tuanku Muhammad Faris Petra, is to be officially addressed as Sultan Muhammad V, it was announced here Wednesday.

The Controller of the Kelantan Royal Household, Datuk Abdul Halim Hamad, said the use of the name had been in force since the proclamation of the new sultan on Sept 13.

Abdul Halim said the sultan wished to use the name Sultan Muhammad because it had been used by his ancestors.

The name Sultan Muhammad 1 was used by the sultan of Kelantan who had ruled from 1800 to 1835 whose original name was Sultan Long Muhammad, he said, adding that he was the eldest prince of Sultan Long Yunus who had ruled the state from 1765 to 1795.

Abdul Halim said Sultan Long Senik Long Tan had used the title Sultan Muhammad II (Sultan Muhammad Mulut Merah) when he ruled from 1836 to 1886, while Sultan Long Kundor, the eldest prince of Sultan Ahmad, had used the title Sultan Muhammad III during his rule from 1890 to 1891.

The title Sultan Muhammad IV was used by Sultan Tuan Long Senik who ruled Kelantan from 1900 to 1920, he said.
