    having had been

    Kerala’s past history of having had been an erstwhile part of one of the three Tamil Kingdoms…

    Is the above sentence correct? How do we express that Kerala had been a part of Tamil Nadu, while retaining the sentence as it is...?

    Re: having had been

    It is not correct. '...history of having been a part of...' is correct.
    Omit "erstwhile", as it is redundant.
