Nusantara is an Indonesian word for the Indonesian archipelago. It is originated from Old Javanese and literally means archipelago.
The word Nusantara was taken from an oath by Gajah Mada, as written on an old Javanese manuscript by Negarakertagama. Gajah Mada was a powerful military leader and prime minister of the Majapahit Empire who was credited with bringing the empire to its peak of glory. Gajah Mada delivered an oath called Sumpah Palapa, in which he vowed not to eat any food containing spices until he had conquered all of Nusantara under the glory of Majapahit.
