Nyi Roro Kidul as the Queen of Southern Sea


The urban legend of Nyi Roro Kidul is very famous for all of the people in Java and Bali Island. That is because she is believed as the queen of the spirits in the southern sea. The beginning of the story started when one princess of the Sundanese Kingdom was sending out because of the bad behaviors of her stepmother. Even though the one who has bad behavior is her stepmother, but the King also marks out her name from the next generation of the kingdom itself. However, as the princess of the kingdom, she just cannot accept that. Therefore, she is said to make her own kingdom.

Unfortunately, there is no clear detail about what is the kingdom that she made after she was banned from the Sundanese Kingdom. However, many people believed that Nyi Roro Kidul has the kind of special kingdom that still lives until this time. The kingdom cannot be simply seen using the naked eye since the kingdom is believed to be placed under the deep water of the southern sea. This is the very first reason why she was called the Queen of the Southern Sea.

As an addition to all of those rumors and stories about the Queen, many people also believe that this is something related with the mystic. That is because many people are gone missing in the southern beach, where the long coastline is also included as one part of the kingdom of the Queen. Most of the time, the people who went missing in that place are the type of people who do not obey the traditional and local rules such as the proper dress code and how to take care of the nature. This is why Nyi Roro Kidul is mad and takes those people to her kingdom.

However, there are also some people who have that kind of similar mystic power who try to reach the underwater kingdom of the Queen and find where the location is. Some of those people said that the people who went missing because of their own mistake are taken prisoner in the kingdom. However, there are also some people who went missing because Nyi Roro Kidul wants them all to live in her kingdom. Mostly are the good people. That is because the Queen wants to save those good people from doing bad things that might harm nature and the people around them.
