Surakarta Dutch East Indies
First posted on December 27th 2009, last revised on May 11th 2010

Yogyakarta emerged from the partition of the Sultanate of Mataram in 1755,l the other part being Surakarta. Its present borders were determined largely in consequence of the Java War 1825-1830, in the course of which the Dutch East Indies annexed large stretches of territory.
The Sultanate of Yogyakarta was able to maintain a degree of political autonomy throughout colonialism. During the "Police Actions" 1948-1949 when the Dutch attempted to reimpose control over the islands, Indonesian leaders could use Yogyakarta as a refuge. Within the Republic of Indonesia, Yogyakarta retained special status.

Spelling varieties : Yogyakarta, Jogjakarta, Jokjakarta, Jokjokarta, Djogjakarta, Djokjakarta, Djokjokarta, Dschokdschokarta, Yudschyakerta, Djocjokarta. To add to the large number of spelling varieties, the name "Mataram" (& spelling varieties) continued to be used into the 19th century.
