Paku Alam I, originally known as Natakusuma, was the first ruler of the principality of Pakualaman, rewarded for helping the British quell conflict in Yogyakarta in June 1812. Pakualaman (also written Paku Alaman) became a small hereditary Duchy within the Sultanate of Yogyakarta, as a mirror-image of the Mangkunegaran principality in the territory of the Susuhunanate of Surakarta. Paku Alam I ruled from 1812 to 1829, and was buried at Kota Gede.
