On December 3, 1574, Limahong and his bandits left Manila for Pangasinan and established a kingdom near the mouth of Agno River.

Limahong was a notorious Chinese pirate and warlord who invaded the northern Philippine Islands in 1574.

He announced to the people that he had conquered the Spaniards and that he had come to rule over them as their king.

Near the mouth of the Agno River, about four miles from the sea, he built a fort consisting of an outer palisade of palm logs, and an inner enclosure of palm planks which sheltered his palace.

He also built pagodas and dwelling places preparatory for permanent settlement.

Limahong decided to stay there and to make himself master of the region, be rich and far from reach of the Spaniards and the Chinese emperor.

Great terror and fright filled all the neighboring villages, and all of them, with no exception, received Limahong as king, and they obeyed him and paid him tributes.

The Spanish colonizers could not tolerate the presence of Limahong, hence they sent an expedition for Lingayen on March 23, 1575. They drove out the bandit who slipped out into the China Sea toward his former lair.

Also on this same date was the birth in 1924 of Francisco Sionel Jose, a leading fiction writer in English and editor, in Rosales, Pangasinan.

Notably, Sionel Jose was recipient of the Ramon Magsaysay Award for Journalism, Literature and Creative Communication Arts in 1980 and the Philippines National Artist for Literature in 2001.

His works include: The God Stealers (1968), Tree (1978), My Brother, My Executioner (1979), Waywaya (1980), Mass (1984) and Poon (1985).

Interesting. I wonder what would have happened had the Spaniards not been around to repulse Limahong and his war brigands. Philippines could have become: Limaholandia

Limahong, also known as Lim Ah Hong , or Lin Tao Kien was a Chinese pirate who invaded the northern islands of the Philippines and tried to seize the City of Manila from the Spanish in 1574.
Limahong was born as Dim Mhon , since he was young he started to do criminal activities, including robbery, . He met and became a protege of an old pirate, Tial-lao. When Tial-lao died, Lim became his heir, inheriting the old pirate's fleet and around 2,000 pirates. His numerous attacks on ports and ships throughout southern China made the authorities issue a warrant for his capture. This brought him to pursue his criminal activities on higher seas, far from China's reach.
He was able to accumulate 40 ships which increased to 95 ships when he took over the fleet of another pirate, Vin To Quiam. He came to be the notorious king of the waters of southern China.
It was in late 1573 that an army of 3,000 outlaws, bandits, and pirates led by Limahong arrived at the island of Luzon. There, they established a kingdom and waged war against the Spaniards.
In early 1574, their fleet fled to Ilocos Sur and had a run-in with its Spanish commander, Juan de Salcedo. The pirates were driven away by the Spaniards.
When they fled from Ilocos Sur, Limahong learned that Manila was an unprotected city though already occupied by the Spaniards. He decided to take over Manila and make it his kingdom. He attacked the city in 1574 with 64 ships but failed. However, he was able to kill Martin de Goiti of the first Spanish expeditionary force and several Filipinos under the leadership of Rajah Lakandula. He also burned the city.
From this unsuccessful attempt, he led his fleet to what is now Pangasinan. He was trailed by a ship under Governor-General Guido de Lavezaris, who found him settling a colony in Lingayen, Pangasinan. The people of Pangasinan became hostages in their own province as Limahong fought against a seven-month siege by Juan de Salcedo's army. During that time Limahong started a sort of Kingdom; surrounded by spanish and local forces he fled the province in 1574 and disappeared; according to some sources he gone to Taiwan ; since then they never heard anything about him... ..
The "Limahong Channel," dug over six months, served as the pirate's escape route. According to Restituto Basa, author of Footnotes on Pangasinan History and The Story of Dagupan, Limahong married a certain Princess Kabontatala who helped him dig this channel. A marker has been placed at the channel commemorating his failed attempts to occupy Manila.

Limahong’s treasure and the mermaid of Sual
From the Saltbeds by Restituto C. Basa


LIMAHONG, who was dubbed by his enemies, the Spanish authorities, as a “blood-thirsty pirate”, built his fortress in Domalandan.

Here he tarried for over seven months from December 8, 1574 up to August 4, 1575.

In 1989, Professor Cesar V. Callanta, a native of Dagupan, wrote a book – “The Limahong Invasion”. In this book, Professor Callanta wrote:

“Limahong carried enough treasures to buy an empire.”

What happened to this treasure?

No one knows for sure. Some writers speculate that Limahong brought this treasure along with him, when he left Domalandan for freedom in the high seas on August 4, 1575.

Professor Callanta is one of those who hold this view.

Others believe he hid it in a cave underneath the sea on Cabalitian island in Sual.

This treasure is said to being protected by a mermaid.

To this day, some of us, Pangasinenses believe that there truly is a mermaid in the deep waters around Cabalitian island.

Recently, the Villamil-Jovellanos clan of Dagupan had an outing in Cabalitian. They went there primarily to do swimming and have a picnic at lunch time.

One of them, a young physician, disappeared quietly. When the family decided to pack up and go home, he was nowhere to be found.

The family consensus was that he may have been taken by the mermaid. She found the doctor very handsome and took fancy of him.

The family could not believe that he drowned. He was a good swimmer.
