Lenggu, Prince-Christoffel-Hanok

Chief DynastybRote, Prince-Christoffel-Hanok, Lengguranch of OEnale Prince Christoffel Hanok Lenggu.
His brother was the last raja of OEnale until his death in 1961.
Actually the Lenggu’s from Bilba, but a forefather advised a raja ca. middle 19th century to do something, which would make hs rule more longer. Then he adopted that wandering Bilba chief as son. From time to time that new branch also deliverd rajas. The original dynasty is the Giri dynasty. Now the Giri- and the Lenggu branch deliver each a representative for the royal symbol.
Both branches are now ruling a part of OEnale. He himself did that from 1966-1984. Of course each has a dream to be Raja of total OEnale. Before OEnale also had the Dehla area under it’s rule, but that area under a Fettor (vice-Raja) separated from OEnale.
