“No. Your husband is Prabu Menak Prakosa son who killed our father. It’s mean he also our enemy.

“I and uncle Cokorde Rai still built a squad and power to attack and get the Klungkung Kingdom, while you are here enjoy life with our enemy. If you still need me to acknowledge my sister, please help me.” He shout again loudly.

“Brother, what should I do…?” She asked Cokorde Bagus Tantra.

Adipati Ragajampi will be come to Blambangan to deserve. And in that time I will attack Klungkung and make a revenge and get back Klungkung Kingdom.” He explain.

Dewi Surati so scare heard his brother plan. With no need by herself she shooting: “Nooo….. It is impossible. I could not do it. I have been help by my husband when I am alone, no food, no one and the rebels almost kill me.” She said.

“Damm you…!!! You would not help me…? It’s fine. I will not push you to do that , but you must accept my judgments for your cheat.” Cokorde Bagus Tantra than go quickly.

“Brotherrr….?!!”  Dewi Surati call his brother, but Cokorde Bagus Tantra ignore it at all.

Cokorde Bagus Tantra run and jump within a second he disappear from the eyes of Dewi Surati.

Dewi Surati just stay alone and the tears drop from both of her eyes. She is so sad facing those fact.

A few days latter…..

Raden Banterang went out of the Palace to hunting the wild pigs in the jungle to help himself to have a fun thru the jungle.

His mind so confuse. His mother push him to find another girl who can give them a child soonest because of Dewi Surati is could not give them one, while Raden Banterang loving Dewi Surati so much. He facing a very difficult situation. To sit on his mother part or to Dewi Surati.

Therefore, he often go to the jungle to make a fun by hunting the wild pigs. But someday, when he ride his horse to the jungle, there a guy who worn a torn dirty shirt stop his step by standing in front of Raden Banterang way.

Raden Banterang very angry and asking: “Who are you…? What are you doing to stand in front of me…?”   He continue with a high tense voices.

“Please forgive me your majesty.” That guy fell himself in front of the foot of Raden Banterang.  “You are in dangerous. Big dangerous your majesty.

“Big dangerous…?” What do youi mean…?” Raden Banterang ask in counfuse.

 “Don’t you know that Dewi Surati is Dewi Supraba the King Klungkung daughter who will take a revenge for their parent day.” The guy continue.

“Hugh’ How do you knew this a beggar…? Raden Banterang asking again.

“Forgive me your majesty.. I’ve been tell by a trader people from Klungkung who make a business trading in Blambangan. He saw  Dewi Supraba in her new name Dewi Surati in Blambangan Palace. He never forget Dewi Supraba face, although she change her name to Dewi Surati and marry you your majesty.”

“Damm you a beggar. If you lie to me I will cut your neck . Because you so brave to cheat my wife.” He continue.

“Forgive your majesty. If you do not trust me, you will see the prove, right now Dewi Surati just put a Keris from the Klungkung Kingdom in pillow case of hers. In the short time you will kill by Dewi Supraba your majesty.

Raden Banterang has a high temperamental and he always judge and finalized the things at once before  he thinking it carefully. In this case he acknowledge the issue without investigate it is correct or wrong issue.  His heart so burn in angry. He abandon his plan to have a fun and hunting in the jungle. He jump onto his horse and back to the Blambangan.

When he arrive in the Palace he just entering their bed room . He is not see her wife.  “Hmm May be she is in the garden.” He said to himself snoozed.

Raden Banterang pull the pillow of them. And yes. There is a Keris inside. He pull the keris and he look carefully that keris in his hand. There is a Balinese words on the handle of the Keris. Yes the keris is belong to Klungkung Kingdom.

“Damm…..!!?! Raden Banterang moaning loudly. He take the keris and put inside of his trouser and run to the garden.

“Oh Raden Banterang my husband… ! What happen..? usually you will back in the evening….”

“Come with me….” Said Raden Banterang so cold.

With no talk, he bring his wife left Blambangan Palace in the horse to the jungle. Dewi Surati so surprise watching his husband face which is seem so angry.

He bring his wife to the rivers in the deep of the jungle where they met in the first time. He down his wife from the horse.

“My husband, why you bring me to this place…?” She asking.

Raden Banterang not answer his wife question. But he pull out the Keris from his wais and said.  : Dewi Suati…!!!!  Tell me the truth….!!!  Who are you….?!??” His order heard breaking the space.

Both eyes of Dewi Surati open widely when seeing the Keris that she knew is belong to his father, the King of Klungkung which given to his brother Cokorde Bagus Tantra when they will left the Palace Klungkung in the night before the battle against the trooper of Blambangan.

Raden Banterang appoint the Keris to the face of Dewi Surati and said “Dewi Surati, tell me the truth who are you…? He shout loudly.

“All right my husband I will tell you the truth.” She said in sadness. She is almost crying….“ I am Dewi Supraba the daughter of the King of Klungkung.  I from Adipati Ragajampi who want to catch me and push me to marry him.

“A very good you may open to me!.” Cut Raden Banterang.

“But believe me Raden Banterang, not a pity in my mind to trying to cheat you as my husband.” She continued.

“Why then this keris is put in your pillow…? Raden Banterang raise the Keris highly.

“No. I don’t know who put the keris in my pillow. It is true that a few days a go my brother visit me and push me to kill you, but I could not follow his order. How may could kill my husband.  Because I love you with all of my heart body soul.” She continue.

“Lier….” Raden Banterang shout veryloud and make Dewi Surati so trembling. Both of Raden Banterang eyes are red. His high temperament are came out and he could not think clearly what have been they facing actually. He always do a judgement and varnish before investigate and think it clearly. This habit will regret him later on.

“The prove is there.” He shouting even more loud. “But you still try to deny.”   You have to redeem your false and die in this keris. Your father keris.” He said continue.

“Please don’t my husband.” She look at her husband in sadness. “Don’t make my father’s keris dirty with my blood my husband. If you not trust me any more, it is fine but there is another way to prove my love and my loyal to you.”  I could not swim my darling. This river is very deep. The water run so fast. If I jump onto it, I will die soonest, but please give a chance to pry to my God Ida Hyang Widhi Wasa.

Raden Banterang stay stoned at his foot. His heart beating so fast. But since his mind are clamp by a angry and locked by a his high temperament he could not thinking brightly and clarity.

“All right.” I give you a chance to pry and apologize to the God Ida Hyang Widhi Wasa…..!!”  He shouting even more loud now.

With whispering Dewi Surati prying to the God Ida Hyang Widhi Wasa and wish; Oh my God, Ida Hyang Widhi Wasa, please show a prove to my husband how I love and loyal and I never been cheat to him. Please prove that I am a loyal wife of her.” She wish on her prying.

Upon finish prying, she look at her husband and said ; “My husband, be a witness. I will jump onto the river. If later on after I jump the water of the river fragrance the nice good smell of floral, it is the prove that I was a loyal and innocent wife of yours. But in opposite, if the water smell badly, it is the prove that I was a cheat wife and I am guilty. Okay my darling… Good bye my love…….!!!

“Byurrr……” the water in the river are foaming when accepting the body of Dewi Surati. Her body are dived into the water. And never raised again from the river.

Raden Banterang stay stoned at his foot. He watching the river with wide opened eyes, and only a few second there is a nice fragrance of floral smell from the water of the river.” Banyuwangi.” Raden Banterang shouting to him self. Banyuwangi mean a fragrance water.

Now Raden Banterang knew that his wife is true. She is a loyal loving wife. She is not guilty. She is very nice women and could not compare to any one that he knew.

Raden Banterang fall down to the ground. His eyes are wet with a tears. He regret at all. But every things has already done. Thousand regrets will never get back every things that has been done. Dewi Surati the beautiful wife, inner and outer the loving lady has gone. He will never take anyone to replace her completely.

The place that happen then named “Banyuwangi” as like what we known this time. In the modern era, Banyuwangi develop rapidly to the modern and busy city   like what we know at  this time.

A few month latter after the tragedy of Dewi Surati, Cokorde Bagus Tantra and Panglima Cokorde Rai attack the Klungkung Palace. Adipati Ragajampi could not deffence the Palace because almost all of the people of Klungkung backing up Cokorde Bagus Tantra and Panglima Cokorde Rai.

Before the people of the Klungkung get back the Palace, Adipati Ragajampi himself and his family with the rest of his squad escape from the Palace of Klungkung and go to the beach and sailing the sea  back to Blambangan.

Prabu Menak Prakosa so sad knowing the loss of Adipati Ragajampi from the people of Klungkung, and to appreciate his effort the King of Blambangan then assign and give him a place in the west of Banyuwangi until he died.

To remind him the place then called ROGOjampi, according to the local dialect.

That’s about Banyuwangi and Rogojampi history.
