Abstract: As an oral tale or folktale, Legenda Reyog (The Legend of Reyog Ponorogo (LRP)) has the potential to be linked to factual events, history, geographical background, be­liefs, and historical figures. LRP also comprises several elements of culture or social reality of the tale owners, that is, their experience of the past or their history. As a verbal literature, LRP is a kind of historical literary work in the sense that there is a fusion of historical and literary elements. The historical approach in this research is aimed at presenting information about historical interpretations of figures, locations, and events in LRP connected to the his­tory of Wengker-Kadiri Kingdom. In the analysis, some identification of the relationships between LRP and some available historical facts are conducted. The identification is carried out by relating figures, locations, and events in LRP with figures, locations, and events in the history of Wengker—Kadiri Kingdom, especially during the sovereignty of Airlangga.


Key words: The Legend of Reyog Ponorogo, history, identification.
