Jakata (PerpustakaanTanahImpian) - Melewar Negeri Negeri Sembilan
Raja Melewar was Negeri Sembilan's first great dictator in the Malay Peninsula. He is a descendant of Yang Perttuan Pagaruyung (West Sumatra), who was sent to become king in Negeri Sembilan.

Biography
His full name is Yang Di Pertuan Besar Sri Paduka Raja Tuanku Mahmud Syah ibni al-Marhum Sultan 'Abdu'l Jalil, who is in the Big Country of Negeri Sembilan. King Melewar ruled from 1773 to 1795.

The Minangkabau settlers had lived in Negeri Sembilan since the 15th century. At first they were under the protection of Malacca, and then Johor. In the 18th century the weakened Johor could no longer protect Negeri Sembilan from attacks by the Bugis. Therefore the leaders of Negeri Sembilan requested that the king be sent from Pagaruyung to rule them. The king of Pagaruyung at the time, Sultan Abdul Jalil, granted the request and sent King Melewar to become king in Negeri Sembilan.

Before Raja Melewar left for Negeri Sembilan, Raja Pagaruyung had ordered a royal relative named Raja Khatib to leave early to make preparations to welcome King Melewar in Negeri Sembilan. But when he got King Khatib in the Waiting Series, he had claimed to be the king's son who was brought from Pagaruyung. Penghulu Menanti Series called Penghulu Naam then married his daughter to Raja Khatib.
