Pakubuwana IX, Sultan of Solo, appears in "The Cowboy Captain of the Cutty Sark", in 1883, in Java, where the Sultan of Djojka wants to buy the longhorns Scrooge bred in Montana and brought to Java sailing on the Cutty Sark, so that he'll beat him in the Kerapan Sapi, the annual bull-race on the island of Madura. But the Sultan of Solo steals Scrooge's longhorns. Scrooge finally catches him up. The two sultans of Java seem to be speechless, so they use a sign language, and are translated by "emitters-of-verbal-speech". Their names and faces are based on authentic data that exist only in traveling stories of the time, which Don Rosa found looking through the archives of a local university.
