As the Philippine History taught us about the things Jose P. Laurel did to our country as the President of the Second Philippine Republic during the Japanese occupation, as well as other historical figures, we sometimes wonder what does their  descendants is doing right now? Do they continue the legacy of these heroes who are their forefathers?

The Beginning of the Laurels in the Philippines

With years of genealogical research, the Laurel family was able to trace their ancestry. They were descendants of a budding Sultanate of Brunei in the 15th century who refused the throne in exchange for his love in exploring, travelling and seeking adventures, who then finally settled in Batangas, Philippines.

Being a leader is natural in this powerful family because of the blood of the Sultanates of Brunei runs to their veins. The Laurels are able to acquire the highest political positions in the country. And not just in the world of the politics, they also established the name in the business world.
