The general public also knows that the Mataram Kingdom was founded at the time when Panembahan Senapati was founded with the blood of aggression towards the surrounding areas until a large-scale rebellion occurred that threatened the existence of the Mataram Kingdom, then Amangkurat 1 ordered his son Amangkurat 2 to form an alliance with the Dutch.

The grudges of the areas that had been conquered by Mataram, as long as Mataram existed as a self-governing body under the Dutch, slowly eroded because Mataram relatives and their people filled many of the conquered territories. Until the early days of the republic, many regents were still from the Mataram royal family.

In the Dutch military aggression to Yogyakarta, the Dutch were not arbitrary towards the palace palace so that many republican fighters were hiding in it, in the historical record of Yogya it is said that the Dutch queen offered broad powers in Java to the Yogya sultan if he wanted to stand on the Dutch side but was rejected by sultan at that time.

The Dutch had difficulty defending the Dutch East Indies on the island of Java, the loss of control over the Mataram family made the legitimate republican guerrillas receive food assistance and protection from the people of the whole. Unlike the case with the Diponegoro war, the prince and his followers had to fight the Yogya, Surakarta and Mangkunegara palaces, where the end of the story was failure.

Indeed, there were still many indigenous forces who supported the Dutch, until the outbreak of the Surabaya war there were still Knil Madura troops supporting the Dutch from the Knil troops who were then often insulted by the republican fighters and scolded when the Javanese language was rejected and food was taken at the Surabaya front.

It is unique because in the end the Mataram family wanted to break away from the Netherlands where before they allied themselves was the Trunojoyo war which received wide support throughout the island of Java and even Mataram itself internally supported it like the Kajoran family. If Mataram does not break away from the Netherlands, it can be concluded that the guerrilla battlefield in parts of Central and East Java will be difficult for the republican army.

Meanwhile, Jakarta is no longer safe as the capital. This condition is scenario writing which may not be close to 100 percent of the facts because in fact the Mataram family wants to join and support the republic.
