Senapati

East Indian - A Javanese king. The sea-goddess Kidul took him to her underwater palace where he became her lover and learned to control the sea-spirits. When he returned home, walking on the surface of the sea, he became king of Java. Attempts to kill him by the assassin, Bochor, and by Ratna Jumilah failed because, as a divine king, he was invulnerable. Sometimes called Senapati, Sena-pati or Sena-pati.
