Sau Raga lived in the Soraha mountain, while Sai Lor lived in Sauhuhun mountain. They each had a king, and the two kings were brothers.
Historically, before the arrival of the Portuguese, Manatuto was ruled by different traditional authorities. In 1698, Portugal established its authority through Governor António Coelho Guerreiro, and started intervening on Timor’s internal politics, including in Manatuto. On April 20 1859, Governor Afonso de Castro established 11 Districts. Manatuto became a separate district, with its capital in Manatuto Vila, and bringing together the kingdoms of Bubur-Susso, Kablaqui, Fulau, Faturo and Turiscai. After World War II, Governor Oscar Ruas turned Manatuto the district into a Civil Circumscription composed of Barique, Fatuberlihu, Laclo, Laclubar no Laleia. Manatuto kept the same structure during the Indonesian occupation, and became a Municipality after independence.
