Selangor known by its Arabic honorific Darul Ehsan, or "Abode of Sincerity", is one of the 13 states of Malaysia. It is on the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia and is bordered by Perak to the north, Pahang to the east, Negeri Sembilan to the south and the Strait of Malacca to the west. Selangor surrounds the federal territories of Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya, both of which were part of it; the state capital of Selangor is Shah Alam and its royal capital is Klang. Petaling Jaya, was awarded city status in 2006. Selangor is one of three Malaysian states; the state of Selangor has the largest economy in Malaysia in terms of gross domestic product, with RM 239.968 billion in 2015, comprising 22.6% of the country's GDP. It is the most developed state in Malaysia; the origin of the name Selangor is uncertain. A common suggestion is that the name refers to the Malay word langau, a large fly or blowfly, found in the marshes along the Selangor River in the state's north-west. According to local lore, a warrior who escaped from Malacca after the Portuguese conquest, took a break from his journey north and rested under a tree here.
However, he was disturbed by whereupon he decided to explore the area. When he found the place to be his liking and chose to settle there, he named the place "satu langau" meaning "a large blowfly". Another suggestion is that the name may have originate from a kind of tree found in Kuala Selangor and along Selangor River named mentangau. In the absence of a firm etymological explanation, alternative theories abound. One theory claims the state's name is derived from the term Salang Ur where ur means "town" or "village" in Tamil, meaning village of the salang people, it has been proposed that the name is derived from a combination of salang and jemur, indicating that it was once a place where traitors were stabbed left to roast in the sun. Tho most important settlement of the area in the ancient period may have been Klang. Ancient artefacts including Bronze Age axes and bronze bell dating from the 2nd century BC, iron tools called "tulang mawas" have been found in or near Klang; the Mao Kun map dating to the Ming dynasty and used by the Admiral Zheng He during his voyages of expedition between 1405 and 1433 refers to places in Selangor such as the Klang River estuary and a hilly area.
The Malay Annals indicates that the Selangor area was under the control of the Sultanate of Malacca in the 15th century. According to the Malay Annals, Tun Perak was appointed the chief of Klang during the reign of Muzaffar Shah; the son of Mansur Shah and Hang Li Po named Paduka Sri Cina was made raja of Jeram near Langat, which may be due to the presence of Chinese miners there. After the fall of Malacca to the Portuguese in 1511, the area came under the control of Johor Sultanate and was governed by Sri Agar Diraja, son of the Bendahara family of Johor. In the 17th century, Johor was involved in a war against Jambi, the Sultan of Johor engaged the help of Bugis mercenaries from Sulawesi to fight against Jambi. After Johor won in 1679, the Bugis started to gain power in the region. Many Bugis settled along the coast of Selangor and some inland regions. In some places, the Bugis displaced the Minangkabaus; the Bugis and the Minangkabaus from Sumatra struggled for control of Johor. In order to establish a power base, the Bugis led by Raja Salehuddin founded the present hereditary Selangor Sultanate with its capital at Kuala Selangor in 1766.
Selangor is unique as the only state on the Malay Peninsula, founded by the Bugis. In the 19th century, the economy of Selangor boomed due to the exploitation of its tin reserves. In 1854, the Sultan of Selangor granted Raja Abdullah control of Klang, passing over Raja Mahdi, the son of the chief who ruled Klang, leading to the Selangor Civil War of 1867 to 1874, a struggle for control of the revenues from tin. Tin mining attracted a large influx of Chinese migrant labourers. Chinese clans allied; the conflicts between Malay and Chinese factions in Perak and Selangor, as well as concerns over piracy that affected coastal trade, led to increasing British involvement in the affairs of the Malay states. In 1874, Sultan Abdul Samad of Selangor accepted a British Resident in a system that allowed the British to govern while the Sultan remained the apparent ruler. Klang was the capital of the British colonial administration for Selangor from 1875 until 1880 when it was moved to Kuala Lumpur. Under the stability imposed by the British, Selangor again prospered.
In 1896 through the coordination of the Resident Frank Swettenham, Selangor united with Negeri Sembilan and Pahang to form the Federated Malay States, with Kuala Lumpur its capital. The Federated Malay States evolved into the Federation of Malaya in 1948, which became independent in 1957 and was renamed Malaysia in 1963; the city of Kuala Lumpur functioned as the national capital of Malaysia and as the state capital of Selangor. In 1974, Selangor
