Sultan Salahuddin

From Academic Kids

Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah ibni Almarhum Sultan Hisamuddin Alam Shah Al-Haj (March 8, 1926 - November 21, 2001) was the eleventh Yang di-Pertuan Agong (roughly equivalent to King) of Malaysia, and seventh Sultan of Selangor.

The eldest son of Sultan Hisamuddin Alam Shah Al-Haj ibni Almarhum Sultan Alaeddin Sulaiman Shah by his royal consort Tengku Ampuan Raja Jemaah binti Raja Ahmad, Tengku Abdul Aziz Shah was born at Istana Bandar Temasya, Kuala Langat. He was educated at the Malay College Kuala Kangsar (MCKK) and the School of Oriental and African Studies, London..

The oldest ever to be elected Yang di-Pertuan Agong on April 26, 1999, he died in office on November 21, 2001 at the Gleneagles Medical Centre in Kuala Lumpur. A well-loved, down-to-earth monarch, he was deeply mourned by Malaysians who attended his state funeral in Klang by the thousands.

Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah married at least four wives. His first wife and cousin, Raja Nur Saidatul Ihsan binti Tengku Bendahara Badar, whom he later divorced, bore his son and heir Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah (the current Sultan of Selangor). His royal consort, Tengku Ampuan Rahimah binti Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah of the Langkat royal family in Sumatra died before his election as Yang di-Pertuan Agong. His last wife, commoner Tuanku Siti Aishah binti Abdul Rahman, served as his Raja Permaisuri Agong. Being fifty years his junior, she was also the youngest ever occupant of that office - only twenty-eight at her elevation to the throne.
