Chapter Summary

Robert Farquhar, the British Deputy-Resident showed his gratitude to Sultan Nuku for the loyal attachment he had shown to the English. Sultan Nuku and Resident Farquhar concluded a treaty on 12 November 1801 and Sultan Nuku was finally inaugurated by the English. Although he had ruled the Sultanate of Tidore for almost four years, to be acknowledged and confirmed by a European power was a sign of important recognition. He was no longer a prince rebel but a Sultan in the eyes of the English, who referred to Tidore as an ally, not as a vassal. In the first article of the treaty, it was stated that Sultan Nuku of Tidore was in uninterrupted and unshaken fidelity, amity and alliance to His Imperial Majesty George the Third.
