The Origin of the Name Selangor
There are several origins regarding the naming "Selangor". First, the name comes from the word "selangau" (large fly) located near the Selangor River. Another theory, the name Selangor comes from the phrase "Ur Interval" in Tamil, Ur means "Land" and Interval means "Strait". When combined it becomes the Straits of the Land. Another opinion also claimed that the name Selangor came from the name Sungai Selangor.

Selangor Country History
In the 15th century AD, the Selangor region was part of the government of the Kingdom of Malacca. However, after Malacca collapsed this area was contested by several western kingdoms and nations. The kingdoms that sought to control Selangor were the Kingdoms of Aceh, Siam and Johor. While the foreign nation in question is Portuguese. In the next development, to be precise in the 19th century, Selangor had superior economic commodities, namely rubber trees and tin ore mining. This economic activity attracted the attention of traders from China, so the trade and economy of Selangor developed rapidly.

But it is unfortunate, the immigrants (Chinese) formed a illegal trading partnership in cooperation with the nobles of Selangor to monopolize the existing wealth. The complicated atmosphere that arose later gave the British a chance to force the Sultan of Selangor to accept JG Davidson as a Resident in Klang in 1874. Selangor returned prosperous and victorious, but under British control.
