Rembau, one of the component states of the Negri Sembilan federation, dates from 1540. Two Minangkabau chiefs, Dato’ Laut Dalam and Dato’ Lela Balang founded the state. They agreed a pact whereby the headship of the state would alternate between their descendants in the female line. The former was invested with the family title of Dato’ Setia Raja, and the latter with that of Dato’ Lela Maharaja by the Sultan of Johor.
The ruler is styled the Undang Luak, he is selected by the great noble title-holders within the state. An attempt to establish a superior hereditary ruler (Yang di-Pertuan Muda) proved a failure.
The northern districts, centred on Tampin, became a new principality, ruled by the family of the Yang di-Pertuan Muda. The southern districts continued under the traditional form of elective head of state and retained the original name of Rembau.
