Pakubuwono II

Pakubuwono II (also transliterated Pakubuwana II) (1711–1749) was the last ruler of Kartasura and the first Susuhunan (ruler of Surakarta). His correct title in Javanese etiquette standards contains honorific appellations, some of which each successive ruler inherits.

His move of his court from Kartasura to Surakarta was to avert the calamities that occurred at the former palace.
