His name was Parameswara. According to the Malay Annals, he was the last King of Singapura before the Javanese Majapahits took over in a battle so bloody, it is said to be responsible for the red tint of Singapore’s soil today. Fleeing his homeland, he roamed the western coast of the Peninsula searching for a site to lay ground for his new empire.
