The Netherlands authorities the dagger of the Javanese resistance hero was returned to Indonesia during the 19th century, Prince Diponegoro, which is inlaid with gold and has been lost for many years.

Ingrid Van Engelshoven, Minister of Education, Culture and Science of the Netherlands, returned this kris to the Indonesian ambassador in that European territory, I Gusti Agung Wesaka Puja, after «a thorough investigation»Allow certify its authenticity.

The Netherlands claims that the dagger of the Javanese resistance hero was in his Royal Cabinet of Rarities, but when that institution was dissolved in 1883 his collection was divided among several museums and much information about the objects was lost in the process.

The eldest son of the Sultan of Yogyakarta, Hamengkubuwono III, led a five-year campaign against Dutch colonial rule known as the java war, which ended with his arrest on March 28, 1830 and his subsequent exile.
