Riau-Lingga encompassed before Riau-Lingga with vasalstates like Indragiri and other areas,Singapore,and the present Malaysian sultanates of Johore and Pahang(at least these areas in Malaysia).The Sultanate of Riau-Lingga was before one of the most biggest and important monarchies of the Malayu area.
The language,which is speaken here later on became the National language(as "lingua franca")of Indonesia.
