and the Fall of the Ming Dynasty
This is the fantastic true story of the infamous pirate; Coxinga
who became king of Taiwan and was made a god - twice. From humble
origins, Coxinga's father became the richest man in China and
Admiral of the Emperor's navy during the Ming Dynasty. As his
eldest son, Coxinga was given the best education and developed
a love of poetry and the study of Confucius. From this unlikely
beginning, it took the invasion of south China by the Manchu
and the subsequent loss of both his parents, his father defected
to the Manchu and his mother, a Japanese Samurai, died in battle,
to turn Coxinga from scholar to warrior. Fiercely loyal to his
exiled Emperor, Coxinga fought against overwhelming odds until
his defeat drove him out to sea and over to Taiwan, at the time
a lawless set of islands inhabited by cannibals. Self-styled
king of Taiwan, Coxinga died at the moment of his triumph. His
descendants ruled the island for two decades.
