or Soheeta was a Javanese queen regnant and the sixth monarch of the Majapahit empire, ruling from 1429 to 1447. She was the daughter of Wikramawardhana,[1]:242 her predecessor, by a concubine who was the daughter of Wirabhumi, who was killed in the Paregreg civil war with Wikramawardhana. She was succeeded by her brother, Kertawijaya. The Damarwulan
legend is associated with her reign, as it involves a maiden queen (Prabu Kenya in the story), and during Suhita's reign there was a war with Blambangan as in the legend.[2] A notable monumental sculpture found in Tulungagung
Regency, East Java has been identified by some authors as of Suhita. She is dressed in royal attire, including ear pendants, necklaces, bracelets, anklets, and pendants hung from several girdles. In her right hand, she holds a lotus bud, which symbolized deceased royalty in transformation.[3] Notes[edit]
