One interesting aspect of the history of Isakandar Zulkarnain is his link with the Minangkabau Kingdoms of Sumatra, Indonesia. It's rulers claimed their lineage directly from Iskandar Zulkarnain. The best known Minangkabau ruler, Adityavarman, who ruled over Sumatra between 1347 and 1374 AD claimed for himself the name Maharaja Di Raja, 'a great lord of kings.' It was William Marsten who first publicized this link at the end of the 18th century. (Early Modern History ISBN 981-3018-28-3 page 60)
