This is the true story.
Jayabaya was born in 1135 in the kingdom of Kediri, East Java. He was famous as a prophet-king. During his reign, he ordered Sedah and Panuluh, Mpu (teachers) and writers as well in the kingdom, to write his stories. He lived only for 24 years but left us 'Jangka Jayabaya,' a book of Jayabaya's propechy.
One of the most famous propechies is about the colonization of Indonesia and the Second World War.
Jayabaya said, "There will be a time, the kingdom will be overtaken by strange people coming from nowhere, with white skin, magic sticks that could kill people from the distance. They will conquer and rule our kingdom for very long time, until a number of short people with yellow skin come from north, drive out the whitemen. This new foreigners also will rule our kingdom, but just as long as a corn's life (3 1/2 years)."
Indonesia had been the colony of Netherlands since 17th century and during the Second World War, in March 1942, Japanese took over the country. Then they went out in August 1945, just as Jayabaya said.
And the other one that became a hot topic in Indonesia a few years ago, is the names of Indonesian leaders.
He said, "The upcoming kings, have name like this word, 'Notonegoro' (rule the state)."
The first President of Indonesia (1945-1966) was Sukarno, NO on the last two letters. The second President of Indonesia (1967- ) is Soeharto, TO on the last two letters. That's why everyone is predicting who will be the third president.
