Description The Java War or Diponegoro War was fought in Central Java from 1825-1830, between the colonial Dutch Empire and Javanese forces. The war started as a rebellion led by Prince Diponegoro, a leading member of the Javanese aristocracy son of the Jogjakartan Sultan Hamengkubuwono who was born in 1785.

The rebel forces laid siege to Yogyakarta, and when it was ended by colonial and European troops in 1825 continued fighting a guerrilla war for five years.

Eventually Prince Diponegoro was invited to a peace conference, but was betrayed, captured and exiled in Sulawesi where he died in 1855.
