He and Kathleen finally divorced in when he told her he was about to be contacted by extra-terrestrials and did not want her caught up in whatever dramas ensued. By Bertram's son Anthony had taken the reins of government, and it was with a considerable controversy that Vyner attempted to cede Sarawak to Britain secretly in in what gave rise to the anti-cession movement of Sarawak. Neither the identity of the son's mother nor his birth date is clear. The Rajah had the power to introduce laws and acted as chief judge in Kuching. In exchange, he received a sizeable pension for him and his three daughters.

    He saw action in Assam during the First Anglo-Burmese War until seriously wounded inand was sent to England for recovery. The period of Brooke rule is generally looked upon favourably in Sarawak, and in recent times the government has accepted the importance of their legacy for its social, cultural, and touristic value.

War clouds in the Pacific and the South China Sea.

    But his own playboy nature, the antics of his wife and most important his failure to produce a male heir, threaten the dynasty into which he was born. Unclear as to the legality of cession, the British Government simultaneously passed a Bill rajah of Sarawak book Annexation. The Brooke family still maintains strong ties to the state and its people and are represented by the Brooke Trust, and by Anthony Brooke's grandson Jason Desmond Anthony Brookeat many state functions and supporting heritage projects.

The talks quickly broke down when it emerged that Britain intended that Sarawak join the Empire, an outcome to which Anthony was vehemently opposed.

Brooke began to establish and cement his rule over Sarawak: reforming the administration, codifying laws and fighting piracy, which proved to be an ongoing issue throughout his rule.

Anthony denied this. After Charles's death inVyner and Bertram effectively shared power, each spending half the year acting as Rajah in Sarawak.
