Maulana Hasanuddin of Banten
Mulana Hasanudin (also spelled Hasanuddin) was the second ruler of the Banten Sultanate, following the mysterious Sunan Gunungjati when he left to found Cirebon. Hasanudin reigned from c. 1552 to 1570.
He extended the domains of Banten to the pepper-producing region of Lampung, in South Sumatra. This area, which already had long-standing ties with West Java, facilitated Banten's rise to prominence as a pepper port.
