Nils Olav

Brigadier Sir Nils Olav III is a king penguin who resides in Edinburgh Zoo, Scotland. He is the colonel-in-chief of the Norwegian King's Guard; the name'Nils Olav' and associated ranks have been passed down through three king penguins since 1972 – the current holder being Nils Olav III. Norway – whose explorer Roald Amundsen was the first person to reach the South Pole in 1911 – presented Edinburgh Zoo with its first king penguin at its opening in 1913; when the Norwegian King's Guard visited the Edinburgh Military Tattoo of 1961 for a drill display, a lieutenant named Nils Egelien became interested in the zoo's penguin colony. When the King's Guard returned to Edinburgh in 1972, Egelien arranged for the regiment to adopt a penguin; this penguin was named Nils Olav in King Olav V of Norway. Nils Olav was given the rank of visekorporal in the regiment, he has been promoted each time. In 1982 he was made a corporal, promoted to sergeant in 1987. Nils Olav I died shortly after his promotion to sergeant in 1987, his place was taken by Nils Olav II, a two-year-old near-double.

He was promoted in 1993 to the rank of regimental sergeant major and in 2001 promoted to'honourable regimental sergeant major'. On 18 August 2005, he was appointed as colonel-in-chief of the same regiment; the next honour was a knighthood, awarded during a visit by soldiers from the Norwegian King's Guard on 15 August 2008. The knighthood was approved by King Harald V and Nils was the first penguin to receive such an honour in the Norwegian Army. During the ceremony a crowd of several hundred people watched the 130 guardsmen on parade at the zoo, a citation from the King was read out, which described Nils as a penguin "in every way qualified to receive the honour and dignity of knighthood". During the 2005 visit, a 4-foot-high bronze statue of Nils Olav was presented to Edinburgh Zoo; the statue's inscription includes references to the Military Tattoo. A statue stands at the King's Guard compound at Huseby, Oslo. A third penguin, Nils Olav III, took over at some point between 2008 and 2016. On 22 August 2016 he was promoted to brigadier in a ceremony attended by over 50 members of the King's Guard.

He ruled from 1869 to 1888, tried to keep Negri Sembilan independent from British rule, his son Tuanku Muhammad Shah modernised his state. His struggle against the British began in March 1872 when Datuk Kelana Syed Abdul Rahman, who governed Sungai Ujong allowed the British to open a tin mine and set up their operations within his domain. With the help of British soldiers, he defeated burned Rahang; as the appointment of a foreigner, Resident PJ Murray, into Datuk Kelana's court was seen by other local officials as an invitation of a British invasion, the officials crowned Tuanku Antah as the Yamtuan of Seri Menanti, who did not recognise Datuk Kelana's authority. Datuk Kelana claimed Terachi as part of his territory in 1875, he dismissed the local government there. Resident PR Murray interpreted this as a breach against Datuk Kelana's administration, so he went to Terachi with 20 soldiers lead by Lieutenant Hinxman, an interpreter and doctor from Australia known as Dominic Daly to investigate, but they did not find any sign of disorder there.

PR Murray returned to Sungai Ujong, but Daly travelled from Kampung Terachi to Kuala Pilah to measure their distances. Daly was turned away when his party stumbled unto 200 men who threatened them to leave, requested PR Murray to help him. Tuanku Antah mobilised 4000 soldiers in preparation for the oncoming British invasion, was helped by several others: Datuk Siamang Gagap, the Tunku Besar of Tampin, the people of Rembau and Johol, his army marched into Bukit Putus and Paroi, where he warned PJ Murray not to interfere with his sovereignty by trespassing into Terachi. The British Resident requested help from the Straits Settlements, who sent 20 soldiers led by Lieutenant Peyton from Melaka, while Lieutenant Hinxman and his troops dug trenches and fortified their compound, due to uprisings. Lieutenant Hinxman brought another army with him, consisting of 30 troops, 30 policemen, 6 Arabs, to attack Tuanku Antah at Paroi, but they were outnumbered by the locals, who surrounded and defeated them, while Tuanku Antah's forces occupied a house along the banks of the Linggi River as their base of operations.

On 5 December 1875, the British used Datuk Kelana's cannons to fight against Tuanku Antah. After a one-hour-long shootout, Lieutenants Hinxman and Peyton advanced through a swamp to destroy Tuanku Antah's fort, but they were not able to find him, Tunku Laksamana took his place to govern Seri Menanti. Reinforced by 350 soldiers led by Governor Anson from Pulau Pinang, the British bombarded Tuanku Antah's fortress. Tuanku Antah was forced to retreat, the British retook Paroi. With the arrival of the battleship HMS Thistle to Sungai Ujong, still more reinforcements arrived under Lieutenant Colonel Clay, who led his group of 280 soldiers to retake Bukit Sungai Ujong, he led his troops through Langkap into Bukit Putus, where his forces defeated more of Tuanku Antah's soldiers, advanced on to Seri Menanti. Notified of the British approaching to his capital, Tuanku Antah fled with his family to Johor, where they came into the protection of Sultan Abu Bakar. Sultan Abu Bakar advised him to make peace with the British.

On May 1876, Tuanku Antah arranged a meeting with the four Undang-Undang of Negeri Sembilan between them and William Jervois, the Governor of Singapore. Under a peace treaty between all the belligerents, the British agreed to allow Tuanku Antah to rule Seri Menanti, Ulu Muar, Terachi, Gunung Pasir, Innas, renamed his title Yang Di Pertuan Seri Menanti while the other regions of Negeri Sembilan will continue to be ruled by their respective leaders, Sungai Ujong remains under British rule.
