Raja Jema’ah binti Raja Ahmad was the second Raja Permaisuri Agong of Malaysia during the brief reign of her husband, Sultan Hisamuddin Alam Shah Al-Haj ibni Almarhum Sultan Alaeddin Sulaiman Shah. She was also Tengku Ampuan of Selangor during her husband’s reign as Sultan of Selangor.
Born in 1900, in Bandar Termasha, Kuala Langat, Selangor, she was a member of a junior branch of the Selangor royal family. She received her early education in a Malay School near the Bandar Termasha Palace.
In 1920, Tengku Ampuan Jema’ah married Sultan Hisamuddin Alam Shah who was then the royal escort to HRH Sultan Alaiddin Sulaiman Shah. Hence she became the special escort to HRH Tengku Ampuan Fatimah.
In 1926, Tengku Ampuan Jema’ah gave birth to a son, HRH Tengku Abdul Aziz Shah, who later became the 8th Sultan of Selangor.
In 1952, Tengku Ampuan Jema’ah performed the pilgrimage in Makkah and in the following year she accompanied Sultan Hishamuddin Alam Shah for the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in United Kingdom.
Her husband, Sultan Alam Shah died of a mysterious illness at Istana Tetamu in Kuala Lumpur on 1 September 1960 – the day fixed for his installation. According to then Prime Minister Tunku Abdul Rahman, the ruler had been struck down by illness after using the royal regalia in advance of his installation.[1] His death occurred after twenty seven days of illness. He was buried at the Royal Mausoleum near Sultan Sulaiman Mosque in Klang, Selangor on 3 September 1960.[2]
