The sultan of Mataram attacked by Bantam fighters

The sultan of Mataram attacked by Bantam fighters
 
 

The sultan of Mataram attacked by Bantam fighters.
J.P. Coen decided in 1619 that Jakatra, later Batavia, would be a more suitable base for the VOC on Java than Bantam and travelled there to conquer the city. The sultan of Mataram, within whose influence Jakatra fell, was obviously opposed and put up fierce resistance. To further his cause he sealed an alliance with the English present in the city and the sultan of Bantam. But internal strife resulted in Coen being able to win the city for the Dutch after all. The ambush of the sultan of Jacatra by Bantam fighters depicted here resulted from these internal conflicts.
The plate is taken from the work 'Oud en Nieuw Oost-Indien' by Francois Valentyn.
