In a feature unique to the Malaysian monarchy, the position is rotated every five years between the nine Rulers (Sultans) of the Malay states.

The Malay states are a group of nine states of Malaysia (all located in West Malaysia) which have hereditary Rulers. In practice these Rulers, known as Sultans (or Raja and Yang di-Pertuan Besar in Perlis and Negeri Sembilan respectively), are figureheads, and follow the principles of constitutional monarchy.

The Federated Malay States comprised Perak, Selangor, Pahang and Negeri Sembilan while the Unfederated Malay States were Perlis, Kedah, Kelantan, Terengganu and Johor.
