Deli, Indonesia

BRIEF HISTORY: A 1,820 km state in East Sumatra (Sumatera Timur) founded in 1632. A Rajadom from 1632 until 1814, the state became a sultanate in 1814 when acquiring independence from Siak. The
sovereign status was altered by independent Indonesia in 1949 and the installation of the Sultan has been recently authorized by the government of the Republic of Indonesia. The palace was Tanjung Mulija in
Labuan Deli until 1877 and is Istana Maimun in Medan since 1888. The sultanate was revived in 2001.
