 LAPU- LAPU   
.......back........
 
 
 
In 1521 Ferdinand Magellan landed in Cebu.
Magellan wanted all Filipino kings in Cebu 
and nearby islands to surrender to Spain. 
There was one brave Filipino ruler who defied him.
He was chief Lapu-Lapu of Mactan.
Rajah Humabon (Lapu-Lapu's rival) convinced Magellan to 
punish Lapu-Lapu for refusing 
to pledge allegiance to Humabon (and Spain).
At dawn of April 27, 152 1, Magellan invaded Mactan. 
Magellan led a small force of 60 men to Mactan.
He could not land his boats which carried cannons, 
because the northern gulf of Mactan 
was full of coral reefs. Magellan and his small group waded 
ashore to fight Lapu-Lapu and 
his men in ankle-deep water. The Filipinos armed with 
bolos and kris met the alien invaders.
In the bloody battle that ensued, Magellan was critically
 wounded (which led to his retreat and subsquently he died).
Lapu-Lapu defended the freedom of the Philippines.
 He deserves
to live forever in the pages of
 Philippine history as being the first to resist 
the
attempt to make the Philippines a colony of Spain.
 For 54 years thereafter, no Spaniard
dared
 set foot on Philippine soil.
