TERNATE

GENEALOGY

Note: the genealogies of the Ternate Royal house do not all agree on the exact descent of the early rulers between Kolano Tsuka and Sultan Zainal Abidin. Several of them suggest, for example, that all eight sons of Tsuka succeeded as rulers, one after the other over a period of seventy years. This is almost certainly wrong. Nevertheless, I have retained these princely names as those of sons, but presented the line of descent in its most plausible form.
