Historical Background

According to history, Rembau was one of the earliest harbours that the Minangkabaus came to board from Sumatra. The Adat Perpatih (customary law in Negeri Sembilan) was brought in by the Minangkabaus.  They opened up villages in the district and many of them were married to the locals. During the Malacca Sultanate, it was believed that Rembau was a part of Malacca colonies. The Rembau people in that period battled with the people from Naning, Malacca who were commanded by Haji Dol Said.

The first Yang DiPertuan Besar Negeri Sembilan, Raja Melewar, was enthroned in Rembau which is Kampung Penajis, and dwelled in Kampung Astana Raja.
He died in Rembau and his grave is still in Rembau.

Rembau's Undang at this point of time is Dato' Haji Muhammad Sharif bin Othman.
