Daulat Tuanku

Today is an official birthday of the 13th Yang Di Pertuan Agong ,

Seri Paduka Baginda Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Wathiqu Billah Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin Ibni Al-Marhum Sultan Mahmud Al-Muktafi Billah Shah.

[The Yang di-Pertuan Agong is the highest ranking office created by the constitution of the federation of Malaysia. The office was first established in 1957. In accordance with the constitution the holder of this office is "the Supreme Head of the Federation" and as such he is Malaysia's Head of State.

When translated from Malay into literal English the words mean " He who is made Lord ". However, as this is somewhat less than easily understood by English speakers, other translations are more frequently used. Some of these are "Supreme Ruler", "Paramount Ruler" or "Supreme Head of State".

While all of these translations can be considered reasonably correct the office is best described in English as "King" since from a Western political science perspective Malaysia is a constitutional monarchy with a monarch as head of state. The Yang di-Pertuan Agong is one of the few elected monarchs in the world.

Since 1993, the full title in Malay has been, Seri Paduka Baginda Yang di-Pertuan Agong. Prior to that the honorific Ke Bawah Duli Yang Maha Mulia was also used. The consort of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong is called the Raja Permaisuri Agong. They are referred to in English as "His Majesty" and "Her Majesty". ]
