About : HRH Sultan of Johor

Sultan Ibrahim Ismail (born 22 November 1958) is the current Sultan of Johor. He is the first son of Sultan Iskandar.

A motorcycle enthusiast, Sultan Ibrahim is well-known as the founder of the annual motorcycling tour event, Kembara Mahkota Johor.

Sultan Ibrahim Ismail was born on 22 November 1958 as the eldest son of Sultan Iskandar by his first wife Josephine Ruby Trevorrow, of English ethnicity from Torquay, Devon whom Sultan Iskandar (then Tunku Mahmud) met while he was studying in England. Trevorrow took on the name of "Kalsom binti Abdullah" for a time following her marriage to Tunku Iskandar. His mother has since remarried and lives in England.

Tunku Ibrahim was born at Sultanah Aminah Hospital in Johor Bahru. As a youth, he received military training in the US–at Fort Benning, Georgia and later at Fort Bragg, North Carolina.



Tunku Ibrahim Ismail was appointed as the Tunku Mahkota of Johor on 4 July 1981, and had been primarily residing at Istana Pasir Pelangi since then.


Tunku Ibrahim was the regent of Johor between 26 April 1984 and 25 April 1989 when his father served his term as the Yang di-Pertuan Agong of Malaysia.

In recent years, Tunku Ibrahim gradually took over some of the state duties and functions from his aging father; these included the 211th Conference of Rulers, whereby Tunku Ibrahim and Tengku Abdullah, the Tengku Mahkota of  represented their fathers in the meetings, among some other state functions.
A few hours before his father's demise on 22 January 2010, Tunku Ibrahim was appointed as the Regent of Johor, following medical reports that suggested of Sultan Iskandar's pending demise.

Sultan Iskandar died on the same night, and Tunku Ibrahim was installed as the Sultan of Johor the following morning.
