The founding

What was to become the International Committee of the red Cross met for the first time in February 1863 in Geneva, Switzerland. Among its five members was a local man named Henry Dunant who, the year before, had published a crusading book (A Souvenir of Solferino) calling for improved care for wounded soldiers in wartime. In August 1864 it persuaded government  to adopt the first Geneva Convention. This treaty obliged armies to care for wounded soldiers, whatever side they were on, and introduced a unified emblem for the medical services: a red cross on a white background. The ICRC's primary role was a coordinating one. But it gradually became more involved in field operations, as the need for a neutral intermediary between belligerents became apparent. Over the following 50 years, the ICRC expanded its work while national societies were established (the first in the German State of Wurttemberg in November 1863) and the Geneva Convention was adapted to include warfare at sea.

Ratu Boko Palace

Ratu Boko is an archaelogical site in the form of royal palace of Old Mataram Kingdom from 8th century. According to the history of Old Mataram, Ratu Boko palace was used by the Sailendra Dinasty (Rakai Pangkaran) long before the time of King Samaratungga (the establishment of Borobudur Temple) and the Rakai Pikatan (the establishment of Prambanan Temple).

Besides leaving the historical evidence in the form of inscription scattered in Java, the Old Mataram Kingdom built many temple, both Hindu and Buddhist patterned. The finding of gold artefacts in Wonoboyo, indicate the richness of art and culture. The temples are Kalasan Temple, Plaosan Temple, Prambanan Temple, Mendut Temple, Pawon Temple, Borobudur Temple, and many more.

According to the ancient inscription that was made by Rakai Panangkaran in 746-784 AD, at the beginning, the building around Ratu Boko heritage site is called Abhayagiri Wihara.

Abhaya means no danger or peace. Abhayagiri means the Buddhist monks dormitory (vihara) that is located at the peaceful area on top of the hill. In the next period between 856-863 AD, Abhayagiri Wihara changed its name became Walaing Kraton that is proclaimed by Vasal Rakai named Rakai Walaing Pu Kumbayoni. Mantyasih inscription, which was built in 898-908 AD by Rakai Watukara Dyah Balitung, still mentioned Walaing as pedigree of Punta Tarka who made Mantyasih inscription. From the beginning of 10th century until the end of 16th century, there is no news about Kraton Walaing.

The name of Ratu boko comes from local people folk. Ratu Boko (in Javanese language means the king heron) was the father of Loro Jongrang, which became the name of the main temple at Prambanan Temple complex.
