Lord Rangga of the Sunda Empire Passed Away in Indonesia

Liputan6.com, Jakarta - Lord Rangga of the Sunda Empire —an organization whose mission and vision is to create world peace—passed away in Brebes, Middle Java Province. The news of his death was first conveyed via @lordranggaofficial via an Instagram story on Wednesday afternoon (7/12/2022).

He became viral in 2020 after his Sunda Empire movement became viral. Rangga claimed Sunda Empire is a form of world order system and Sun Empire which existed since Alexander the Great era.

Sunda is a term referring to the ethnic group in West Java Province. Lord Rangga believed Bandung, the capital of West Java, held important keys in the world history. Lord Rangga himself was a Javanese, not Sundanese.

Rangga's theories involved so many historical eras and terms, including the Vatican, Pentagon, Security Council, NATO, Pope Paul, Hiroshima Bombing, and British Monarchy. Indonesian historians hardly took the Sunda Empire seriously. Instead, Lord Rangga and Sunda Empire ended up as internet sensation.

Miko, the assistant of the Sunda Empire high-ranking official whose full name is Ki Ageng Ranggsasana announced the news of his passing.

Lord Rangga passed away at around 5:30 p.m. at the age of 55 after undergoing medical treatment at the Mutiara Bunda Hospital in Brebes Regency on Wednesday.

"Yes, that's right," said Miko without explaining the cause of Lord Rangga's death when asked by reporters in Jakarta on Wednesday.

Miko also asked the public to give condolences for the death of Lord Rangga.
