Where is Ratu Rati Brunei in the genealogy charts?

It appears that a Yemenite of the Al-Ghuraimy tribe went to trade in the Far East. He settled in the Malay Islands of what is now known as the Southern Philippines which at that time includes present day Brunei.

The Habib as he was then known was not only a successful trader but was also skilled as a sea navigator and apparently a war strategist of some sorts.

He was accepted in the Tausug community as a preacher, trader and one who was articulate in the art of war. He later became a trusted minor(?) offical of Raja Sulaiman.Together they fought in the defense of Manila.As is now commonly known, Raja Sulaiman and his warriors fled to the Southern part of the Phillipines.The incident is now part of the national history of the Phillipines.

Some of his decendants say that the Habib died in the defense of Manila.There are also others who like me believe that he died some years later as a result of food poisoning. What was certainin however was that his daughter or one of his desendants subseqently married an important official of Brunei.

Like the Habib, she was not only a beautiful woman but was also skillful in her own ways. The title of Ratu Rati Brunei was accordingly bestowed upon her.
