Queen of South = Rachael Suwinda
Mentioned in the Babad Tanah Jawi (19th century), a prince of the kingdom Pajajaran, Joko Tell, met a hermit who ordered that he found the kingdom of Majapahit in East Java. Because the hermit was a beautiful young woman, Joko Tell fell in love with him. But the ascetic who turned out to be the aunt of Joko Tell, named Ratna Suwida, rejected her love. When young, Ratna Suwida exile hermitage on a hill. Then he went to the southern coast of Java and became the spiritual ruler over there. He said to the prince, if offspring prince became the ruler in the kingdom, located near Mount Merapi, he would marry the whole ruler alternately.
The next generation, Panembahan Senopati, founder of the Mataram kingdom 2nd, retreat to the South Coast, to gather all his energies, in an effort to prepare for a military campaign against the northern kingdom. Meditations draw attention Kanjeng Queen of South and he promised to help. For three days and three nights he learn the secrets of the war and government, and love intrigues in the palace under the water, until finally emerged from the Sea Parangkusumo now South Yogyakarta. Since then, Queen of South reported Senopati closely related to the descendants of the ruling, and the offerings presented to him in this place every year through the representatives of Solo and Yogyakarta palace.
That's two stories or legends about the Queen of South, or Nyi Roro Kidul, or Queen of the South Coast. The first versions were taken from the book Folklore of Yogyakarta and the second version contained in the Babad Tanah Jawi. Both these stories are different, but you do not get confused. You do not need a headache to choose, which of the two most true. The stories are just a pengatar for subsequent writings.
Queen Kidul and Yogyakarta Palace
You believe the story of Queen Kidul or Nyi Roro Kidul, or Queen of the South Coast? Most of you probably will say NO. But when we ask to those who live in an age or environment of Yogyakarta Palace. They believe the truth of this story. Truth be Queen of South Kanjeng story still remains a polemic. But apart from the polemics, there is a real phenomenon, that the myth of the Queen of South does have relevance to the existence of Yogyakarta Palace. Relations between the South's Queen of Yogyakarta Palace least not in the Babad Tanah Jawi (the story of Queen Kidul above, the second version). What kind of relationship existed between the two?
Y. Argo Twikromo in his book titled Queen of South mentioning that the community is a community tradition that emphasizes harmony, harmony and balanced living. Because life is not separated from the surrounding natural environment, the functioning and interpret the natural environment is very important.
As a reciprocal communication relationship with the environment according to the Java community has a stronger power, still according Twikromo, then any use of symbols often actualized. If connected with supernatural beings, the rulers knew Javanism spirits as ruler of Mount Merapi, the ruler of Mount Lawu, Kayangan nDelpin, and South Sea. Lord of the South Sea by the Javanese people is what is called Queen of South. The four authorities are circling the Sultanate of Yogyakarta. And to achieve harmony, harmony and balance in society, then the king should be entered into communication with "delicate creatures" were.
According Twikromo, for the Javanese king in touch with the Queen of South was as one of inner strength in managing the country. As the power datan invisible (invisible to the eye), Queen's blessing should be held in the South's daily activities to attain salvation and peace.
Trust in the Queen of South actualized properly. In the harbor activities for example, a traditional ceremony held at the palace by the sea in the southern Yogyakarta, which is held each anniversary of Sri Sultan Hamengkubuwono according to the calculation of the Saka year (in Java). This ceremony is for the welfare of the sovereign and the people of Yogyakarta.
Queen of the South's belief is also manifested through sexual intercourse and dance Bedaya Bedaya Semang held to honor and commemorate the Queen. Other evidence is by establishing a complex of buildings at the Taman Sari (Water Palace at the Bottom), about 1 km west of the Palace Ngayogyakarta Hadiningrat, called the Well Gumuling. This place is believed to be the sultan's meeting place with South Beach Queen, Queen of South.
South Queen appreciation of myth is not only believed and carried out by the palace, but also by society in general in the empire. One proof is that there is a belief that if people were missing in Parangtritis, then that person is lost because of the "taken" by the Queen.
In addition Hadiningrat Ngayogyakarta Palace, Queen of South myth is also believed by their brother, the Kraton Surakarta Hadiningrat. In the Babad Tanah Jawi was mentioned that the Queen had promised to Panembahan Kidul Senopati, the first ruler of the Mataram kingdom, in order to maintain the kingdom of Mataram, the sultans, the royal family, and community of catastrophe. And since both Kraton (Yogyakarta and Surakarta) shared a common ancestor (the Kingdom of Mataram), then as the Palace of Yogyakarta, the Kraton Surakarta also perform various forms of their appreciation to the South Queen. One of them is the most sacred dance performances in the palace, Bedoyo Ketawang, held once a year during the anniversary of the coronation of kings. Nine dancers wearing traditional Javanese wedding invite Queen of South to come and marry susuhunan, and said to the Queen and then magically appears in the shape of the ten dancers who appear shiny.
Trust in the Queen of South apparently also extends to the West Java area. You've heard, that there is a special room (number 308) on the top floor Ocean Beach Hotel, Pelabuhan Ratu, which was presented especially for the Queen of South. Anyone who wanted to meet with the Queen, could go into this room, but must go through an intermediary that provides gifts for the Queen. Specialization of this room is one of the symbols 'magic' used by former president Sukarno.
Until now, in a very modern times, the legend of Queen Kidul or Nyi Roro Kidul, or Queen of the South Coast, is the legend of the most spectacular. Even when you read this story, many people from Indonesia or other countries admitted that they had met a beautiful fairy queen wearing traditional Javanese dress. One person who reportedly also had directly witnessed the Queen's existence is the master painter of Indonesia, (deceased) Affandi. Then he poured his experience in a painting.
