Once upon a time, in a land far away, existed a prosperous kingdom called Majawangi. This awe-inspiring kingdom was ruled by the wise and just King Ajiwilawang. The people of Majawangi were known for their unity and harmony, and the kingdom flourished under King Ajiwilawang’s rule.
The symbol of the kingdom’s power was its magnificent fortress, Garuda Mancakrama, which stood tall and strong atop the highest hill. From the summit, one could spot the vast and vibrant terrain, extending over lush green plains, dense forests, and flowing rivers. This fortress served as a symbol of hope and strength to the people of Majawangi.
King Ajiwilawang had two sons, Prince Raden Wijayakusuma and Prince Raden Sutawijaya. They were taught the art of governance and the wisdom to make just decisions from a young age. Each prince was popular among the people, and their father was confident they would continue the legacy of the great Majawangi Kingdom.
However, fate had other plans day, mysterious dark clouds began to gather around the kingdom, followed by a sudden and unexpected storm that lasted for days. The persistent rainfall caused flooding that destroyed crops and homes, leaving the people of Majawangi desperate and struggling to survive.
The enormous pressure of adversity and the desire to be his father’s successor caused jealousy to brew between the two brothers. This rivalry eventually led to an unfortunate fallout, causing the once united Majawangi Kingdom to be divided into two factions: the followers of Prince Raden Wijayakusuma and the followers of Prince Raden Sutawijaya.
The disunity among the people and the ongoing tension between the two sides weakened the once formidable kingdom. It was during these tumultuous times that the enemies of Majawangi saw an opportunity to invade. Taking advantage of the kingdom’s vulnerability, the enemies attacked the Garuda Mancakrama fortress, causing untold devastation and destruction.
In the midst of chaos and despair, King Ajiwilawang realized that the key to restoring the kingdom’s former glory was to unite his people With a heavy heart, he approached his sons reminded them of the importance of working together for the greater good.
Seeing the pain in their father’s eyes and understanding the consequences of their rivalry, the two princes set aside their differences and joined forces to defend Majawangi against its enemies. The united people of Majawangi fought bravely and pushed back the invaders, ultimately reclaiming their beloved fortress, Garuda Mancakrama.
With the fortress and the kingdom finally restored, King Ajiwilawang named both of his sons as successors to the throne, hoping that the bond of brotherhood and unity would continue to strengthen the Majawangi Kingdom for generations to come.
From that day forward, the tale of the fall and restoration of the Majawangi Kingdom became a legend, passed down through generations as a reminder the power of unity and the consequences of disunity.
