Chapter Summary

In Tidore, the leadership of the state was fairly similar to that of Ternate. The distinction lay in the terms for titles in the Tidoran language. The powerful elites in Tidore were chiefs categorized into two groups. The first was composed of members of the royal and noble families. The second was that consisting of the chiefs of negeri and compounds. On Tidore, a new treaty between Patra Alam and Governor Cornabé was signed in Fort Orange on 17 July 1780. The newly Dutch appointed Patra Alam was rendered powerless, almost totally overshadowed by Nukus authority over the Tidoran peripheries. In view of Nukus rising power in the periphery and his collaboration with the English, the Governor chose to strengthen the defences of Ternate. A small new stronghold was built at Kayu Merah and garrisoned with one sergeant, two corporals, and twenty soldiers.
