Raden Wijaya is more familiar than Kertarajasa Jayawardhana. Indonesia people, especially Javanese refer more to Raden Wijaya instead.

So I guess the name Raden Wijaya will be used, then. Materials from Kertarajasa should be shifted to this article.Wai Hong 15:25, 20 October 2006 (UTC)

Trowulan as capital? ?[edit]

Folks, I did a book search for Trowulan and came up with mostly tourist guidebooks. Although the Lonely Planet and others are happy to argue that Trowulan is the capital of the Majapahit, I can't find a single scholarly book making that claim. It sounds like a significant archaeological site, with evidence of urbanization and a variety of economic activity. But whether/not it's the capital seems to be as yet undetermined. It does, in any case, deserve its own page. --Smilo Don 14:15, 26 September 2007 (UTC)

Raden Wijaya and Anka Widyaya[edit]

In Nick Joaquin's Manila, My Manila: A History for the Young, Chapter 3, it was stated that Manila was under the influence of the Majapahit in around 1300, when Emperor Soledan (or Anka Widyaya) of Indonesia married a Manila princess named Sasaban. Their marriage produced a certain King Balagtas who established the Kingdom of Namayan in around 1335. Is Anka Widyaya and Raden Wijaya the same person? Arius1998 (talk) 06:37, 6 December 2012 (UTC)
