In the book of Wedhapradangga (chronicle of Gotek), volume II, compiled by Raden Ngabehi Pradjapangrawit, it is stated that gendhing ‘Budheng-Budheng’ was composed during the reign of Paku Buwono IV (1788-1820) by Kanjeng Sasradiningrat. The significance of the title is rather unclear. The word ‘budheng’ in the dictionaries is translated as: ‘dull’, ‘dull-witted’ (but also ‘black monkey’).
