Dear Lee porter and Khmerboi,
Thank you so much for your time and info.
Leeporter, I read your thread. Thanks a lot for leading me to the thread. It was rather a little deep for me.
No offense, but sadly most part of that really good thread was wasted on racist arguements. I could see people trying to come with unbiased information when someone comes up and spews it with racist *****. For a third person like me who is new to all of this, it only increases the confusion.
With people who are this deep in knowledge with something, I only wished it to be a more healthy conversation.
But then again the answer for my question was still not answered fully(or I missed it
So I ask now to all,
If Udayatitya varma I was a srivijayan king who came from chaiya or kedah to khmer, then why is he the first varma ruler in srivijaya in such a long time, whilst the kambuja already had a list of varmans in this timeperiod. As a matter of fact even champa had varman rulers but srivijaya, then suddenly a udayatitya varma comes in srivijaya to continue the varma lineage after a long pause in dharmasetu clan(lingavarman grandfather of dharma setu).
Was he a srivijayan+khmer product?
Khmer was in control of srivijaya from the time of dharmasetu until jeyavarman. So is it possible to have this khmer varmans to closely be related with their srivijayan counterparts even from that time ? (its only natural to marry the conquered country's princess).
Or was he an offspring of a srivijayan princess and khmer prince(who already had a varma tag?)?did he being a srivijayan+khmer offspring simply came from khmer to srivijaya for the want of heirloom at that time? that again confuses me.
If that is the case then a srivijayan offspring from palempang or jambi should hold the right before a malay prince as per the normal beliefs- which here again confirms that the authority was already pulled over to malay peninsula from palempang in this time period.
Who filled the gap between Balaputradeva and udayatitya varma(856-960) in srivijayan throne?
I know I have asked a s*** load of questions and that too on srivijaya rather than khmer. what I asked might look like some stupid basic questions , but please consider that I am a foreigner who is trying to find a way through this.
anyone who share their knowledge without bias is really appreciated, thank you.
