    Her marriage was an arranged one, meaning that she didn't love her husband in the first place.
    Suharto used her distant connections to the Mangkunegaran royal house to style himself like a Javanese king, even though her title, Raden Ayu, reflected descent from courtiers rather than the royal house itself.
    She mothered quite a gaggle of kids, particularly morally corrupt sons such as Hutomo Mandala Putra AKA Tommy.
    Taman Mini, the theme park she established to showcase Indonesia's cultural diversity, was criticized for its extravagance.
    Superstitious Indonesians believed that she had the 'wahyu' (flaming womb) that enabled her to rally support for her husband, and it disappeared when she died.
    There were rumors that she was accidentally shot by one of her own sons even thogh it was confirmed that she died of a heart attack.
    She got sick from dysentery when she was 3.
    She was fluent in Japanese as a result of the Japanese occupation of Indonesia during World War II.
    She eventually came to love her husband deeply.
    She was instrumental in the legal limitations imposed on polygamy in Indonesia, including the ban on polygamy among civil servants.
    She worked with various private social welfare organizations.
    She died a year before they could celebrate their golden anniversary.
