I know majority of us were familiar in the story of the 10 borneian Datu’s that migrated in Panay led by Datu Puti, Datu Sumakwel and the others.

According to the story, this borneian Datus brings with them their “entire housewold” in searching for a better and peaceful place to live and in order for them to escape the tyranny of Datu Makatunaw of Borneo. Supporting the Theory of Migration, and supported by various Historical data and folklore, it was said that they reach the Panay Island via a boat called “Balangay”.

Upon reaching the Panay Island, this Ten Datus founded different settlements led by them and so settled there along with their family and relatives. It was also to note that when they reach the Panay Island they are no other inhabitants aside from the Ati’s (similar to aetas and negritos) that was led by Datu Marikudo.

After this Ten Datu’s founded their settlements, it was said that the “aetas” led by Datu Marikudo choose to settle in the Highlands (until today where we can still find them) while the new comers (the Ten Datu and their family and relatives) settled in the lowlands and they populated and dominated the area. It was said that some of the Ten Datu also have settled to different islands of the Philippines like Mindoro, the Visaya’s Islands, Mindanao and as far as the main Island of Luzon. Some also says that Datu Puti, founded the Tagalog settlements in Batangas.

And as time goes by, the population and children of this NOBLE BLOODS from Borneo begin to populate the entire Philippine Islands.

In reference to this story, and taking into account that there are no other inhabitants of the islands when they came aside from the “aetas” that settled to the mountains when they came (until today), and this Datus bringing only their families (family of Royal/noble Bloods being a family and connected to Datu) with them, and their descendants being a Royal/Noble Blood that came from the lineage of the Datu’s, we can conclude therefore that majority of the Filipinos specially the Visayans, particularly the inhabitants of the Panay Island (which is now divided to Iloilo, Antique, Capiz, Aklan) and Probably also the Tagalogs, have ROYAL/NOBLE BLOODS (MAHARLIKA) being a descendant’s of the families of the Ten Datu’s from Borneo.

And of course, our history tells us that ancient Philippines has many Rulers (Datu, Rajah and Sultans) that ruled different City-States/Baranggay of the Philippine Archipelago. (ie Kindom of Maynila, Kingdom of Tondo,Namayan, Seludong, Macabebe, Pulilan, Rajahnates of Cebu/Mactan/Daan Bantayan, Rajahnate of Butuan, Sultanate of Maguindanao, Sulatanate of Sulu and other Kingdoms of the ancient Philippines)

Recorded list of Datus in the Philippines (WIKIPEDIA)

They migrated from the kingdom of Borneo, escaping the wrath of a wicked ruler called Rajah Makatunao. They boarded on large boats and canoes and set out to sea to find a place where they can live in peace and harmony.

The maragtas epic is an epic.....it is not true, though it may have been born from something true

just want to correct you, the Maharlikas are not the aristocrats...the royal bloods were those people belonging to the Maginoo(honorable) class.

So it's like this Maginoo-Maharlika-Timawa-Aliping Namamahay-Aliping Sagigilid...or for the Visayans they have the Oripun instead of the Alipin.

yes maragtas is an epic, but the migration of the Ten Datus of Borneo is considered as an undocumented History.

Maragtas is an epic that revolves in the purchase of Panay thru the "Golden Salakot". As you said, though it was a legend it may have come from something that is true. And I want to believe in that "something that is true". That is, as many historians believes, that the migration of the Ten Datus of Borneo is True. As similar to the theory of Philippine Migration by the boat "balanggay", and our Majapahit and Sri Vijayan connection.

Philippines has still many Datus, Rajahs and Sultans ruling various states and islands of the archipelago before and after the Spanish came.

Sometimes Epics are true since its a story told by our ansestors many centruries ago which the story is passed from generation to generation which is also subjected to modification as it is passed along.

Evidence which may link or support the Ten Datus Epic is the Laguna Copperplate Inscription and the Butuan Balangays which is tangible and real.

Yes and as I said...though the epic itself is not true...It may have come from something true..
there's something true in it, but it's not in itself entirely true.

don't get me wrong, though..
I know there's something true there. biggthumpup.gif

If such stories are true, then nearly all of the world's population would be ROYALS.

The Japanese claim descent from Amaterasu (first emperor)
The Koreans claim descent from Dangun (first emperor).
The Chinese claim descent from Huang Ti (first emperor who united China).
The Arabs claim descent from Ishmael (supposedly first Arab ruler).

And many more others... laugh.gif

If a Filipino is a decendant of one of the Bornean Datus then that technically means he is a Maharlikan am I right?

During the Spanish Era many Sephardic Jews were dumped or seek refuge in the Philippines and many Filipinos claim that they are decendants of them. There is an ongoing DNA program in Israel which can trace if you are a Sephardic Jew decendant and if the result is positive, you are automatically an Israel citizen.

I would like to focus more here on "Nobility".. not necessarily Royalty.. Nobles are inferior to royals though they are distant relatives of them. In Europe and other countries, Nobles usually are given titles such as Duke, Count, Lords and others while the Royals (Kings and Queens) were the one's who holds Supreme power in a country. Though we could not take "royalty" for granted, but as the Royal Bloods of the Datus are widely spread through out their descendants in the Philippines, I think it is not proper to note Majority of Filipinos as Royals, but it is proper to distinguish them as Nobles.

Maharlika is a noble man (though in India it has some other meaning)

How did they become an emperor if they have no people to rule?
Yes, emperor of Japan, China and the others may have many descendants. But during their reign, there is already a vast population of people in their Kingdoms. So it's not right to denote all of them are Royals.

However in the case of the Ten Datu of Borneo, when they came to the Philippines there are no other settler's of the islands except from the aetas that choose to settle in the Highlands/Mountains where we can find them until today. So we could say that "MAJORITY" of Filipinos are Nobles (Maharlika).

If you trace the history / origin of Chinese surnames, you'll find out that nearly all of them are from a king / ruler who may or may not have intermarried with at least one of Huang Ti's offspring.

Of course, the designation of Huang Ti as the father of all Chinese is more symbolic.

Supposedly there's over 20 million descendants of Genghis Khan today. What a legacy!!! embarassedlaugh.gif

We all could have some royal or noble blood in us, but we should all create our own dynasty. That's my personal philosophy.

Before the 10 Datus arriving in Panay, there were the Atis (Negritos) and the Suludnon, and possibly also the Asi (Bantoanon) who primarily reside in the western islands of Romblon province. There could have been others as well such as the Mangyans, but have been assimilated or even eradicated (highly unlikely) by the 10 Datus, assuming of course that the 10 Datu Legend is true.

tama hindi pook (minsan pook... 'pag tinutukoy ang buong bansa natin.. tulad ng maharlika highway dahil dinaan ang buong bansa http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pan-Philippine_Highway)

ngunit kapag ipinapakita na ang isang salita ay siya'y pinanggalingan o kinabibilangan ng iba pang bagay o tao man..an/n ay madalas ginagamit sa engliss....
ibang halimbawa..pampangan, utopian .. mga hindi pook.. victorian, republican, lutheran, millennian, malarian

pinakatama tinging ko ang 'maharlika' pa rin dahil wala pa naman yata sa mga aklat ang salitang maharlikan
