Abu Bakar ibni Daing Ibrahim (1833-1895), also known as Albert Baker, was the 21st Sultan of Johor. Considered to be the “Father of Modern Johor”, Abu Bakar developed Johor’s infrastructure, administrative system, military and civil service, all of which were modelled closely along Western lines. He initiated policies and provided aids to ethnic Chinese entrepreneurs to stimulate the development of the agricultural economy which was founded by Chinese migrants from Southern China in the 1840s. An anglophile, Abu Bakar was also the first Malay ruler to visit Europe in 1866. He died in London from pneumonia while visiting Queen Victoria in 1895. Ref: Wiki.
