- Rider(s):Nyi Ageng Serang
Kustiyah Wulaningish Retno Edhi (1752–1838), better known as Nyi Ageng Serang, is a National Heroine of Indonesia. At the beginning of Diponegoro War in 1825, 73-year-old Nyi Ageng Serang commanded the force on a stretcher to help Diponegoro fighting the Dutch. She fought in several areas and was also assigned to defend the area of Prambanan. One of her best-known strategies was the use of lumbu (green taro leaves) for disguise. Her forces attached the lumbu to poles to look like a taro orchard. She stopped fighting after 3 years. Despite fighting the Dutch, they gave her an annuity of 100 gulden per month as from 1833.
