The infographic, prepared by the Presidential Communications Development and Strategic Planning Office (PCDSPO), shows that Crown Prince Agbimuddin Kiram, who landed in a village in Sabah last February 12, represents the claimant Sultan Jamalul Kiram III, who is just one of several claimants to Sabah.

The PCDSPO says the information in the infographic is "based on public accounts and documents" and "does not constitute an official genealogical chart."

"It does not include all possible descendants to the Sultanate of Sulu," the PCDSPO adds. "This is not a statement of the official position of the Republic of the Philippines."
