The Malay Kingdoms - Continued
These kingdoms were already in existence as early as the 2nd century AD. They were found throughout the Malay World or the Malay Archipelago, which consists of the
- Malay Peninsula
- the Moluccas
- other islands in modern Indonesia and the Philippines
- and also parts of Indochina (Funan and Champa).
Historical records and surviving artifacts show that these kingdoms possessed organised systems of government. The historical records and surviving artifacts also show that they have established relations with foreign powers, especially China and India.
Some developed into large empires as they succeeded in expanding their political and economic power.
Together with Melaka, the other kingdoms grew with it. They subsequently formed the basis from which several modern nations developed.
