Description of manuscript content:
This manuscript contains the story of Damarwulan, a legendary figure who is quite popular in Javanese folklore. Initially, Damar Wulan served as a lawn worker for Patih Loh Gender from Majapahit. Because of his intelligence, Damar Wulan was able to become Patih Loh Gender's mainstay servant and Anjasmara, the duke's daughter, fell in love with him. Damar Wulan then received an assignment from the King of Majapahit, namely Ratu Kencana Wungu, to disguise himself with the aim of helping defeat Menak Jinggo, the ruler of Blambangan who intended to rebel against Majapahit. The handsome Damar Wulan was able to attract the attention of Menak Jinggo's concubines, namely Wahita and Puyengan. With their help, Damar Wulan was able to obtain Menak Jinggo's magic mace Wesi Kuning. Menak Jinggo was then defeated and Damar Wulan became a hero. He brought the two concubines, and in the end also married Ratu Kencana Wungu.
Colophon:
