After a two times move it Capital, (Palace of Pleret and Place of Kerta, both located in Bantul Regency), The capital of Mataram Sultanate moved to Kartasura.

Aftermath of The Gianti war treaty (1745 - 1945)

Yogyakarta Sultanate & Surakarta Sultanate

The City of Jogjakarta and the Yogyakarta Sultanate was established as a result of a "Gianti war treaty" (Perjanjian Gianti) by HRH Prince Mangkubumi (Solo/Surakarta), who later become HRH Sultan Hamengkubuwono I. Officially, the creation of Yogyakarta Sultanate is dated to 7 October 1756 as a result of civil war among the bloodline of The Mataram Sultanate. The civil war was fought against Hamengkubuwono's and his elder brother, HRH Sunan Pakubuwono II. This civil war marked the end of the Mataram Sultanate and resulted in the birth of the Yogyakarta Sultanate and the Surakarta Sunanate.

Dutch Colonial

The root of the civil war started when Sunan Pakubuwono II agreed to cooperate with the Dutch colonial government and submit to foreign (western) powers. His younger brother, HRH Prince Mangkumbumi (HRH Sultan Hamengkubuwono) stood against the concept, due to concern that his people would become slaves under Dutch rule. The Javanese slaves were used to work for businesses owned by V.O.C. and the Dutch Colonial Government and exported to present day Suriname in South America. In the Netherlands itself, some of the Dutch people stood against the policy of their home government.


Prince Mangkubumi fought until the defeat of the Pakubuwono forces and declared sovereignty in the Kingdom of Jogjakarta south of the original Kingdom of Mataram. Because of this historical act of bravery and sacrifice, Jogjakarta is given Special Administrative Region (SAR) status, making the Province of Jogjakarta the only province headed by a monarchy.

Independent Yogyakarta

But in 1998, after the Reformation in Indonesia, the Yogyakarta with Sri Sultan Hamengkubowono IX declared to split from Indonesia. Because in that day, a big crisis come to Indonesia, at last, in 22 August 1998 after the agreement from both Indonesia and Yogyakarta. Yogyakarta be the Independent State. With Jogja as the Capital City.
