The Islamic Mataram Kingdom was heating up, there were differences of opinion about who would occupy the throne after Hanyakrawati died. The heat of the atmosphere even led to the separation of the kingdom.
Then the Hero went down, Pangeran Purbaya, Putra Panembahan Senapati, seated Raden Mas Rangsang on the royal throne, unsheathed the Spear of Heirloom and challenged anyone who opposed the stimulating decision of Rangsang.
No one dared to deny this decision, and Rangsang became the King, later, under Rangsang which later was called the Sultan Agung, the Islamic Mataram reached its glorious time.
Named Jaka Umbaran, the figure of Pangeran Purbaya is indeed a respected figure at that time, the temptation of a severe test during his youth, made Pangeran Purbaya the strongest figure among the Mataram aristocracy.
Refusing to become King, he chose to become a bull of Mataram guards. This is proven by keep guarding the kingdom until his eldest time. Even when the son of the great sultan enthroned, he participated in accompanying the duke of anom to attack the Trunajaya rebel stronghold in the village of Gogodog, where he finally died being attacked by Makassar warriors.
