basic explanation
Basic explanation
  • Shap Ng-tsai was a Chinese pirate in the South China sea from about 1845 to 1859.
  • He was one of the most psychopathic pirates to sail the south Chinese sea.
  • He was Chinese and came from (I think) somewhere near Honk Kong.

What he was famous for.
  • He commanded 70 junk ships.
  • The government offered Shap

Ng-tsai a pardon that would make him a naval officer but he refused.

Chinese naval ships that followed the pirate were captured and their officers taken prisoner and held for ransom.

He forced Coastal villages and traders to pay him protection money so they would not be attacked!

  • He attacked an American ship carrying opium and this started a …BATTLE!
  • He was a coward and let most of his men die so he could escape. Out of about 3000 men 400 survived, but they were probably hanged.

His failed last stand…

Shap Ng-tsai sank one ship heading for America and 3 British Opium ships. He messed with the wrong country. England sent 4 Brigs. Though Shap Ng-tsai had more ships, they were lightly armoured and couldn’t survive the super heavy cannon balls and so Shap Ng-tsai fell back, with 400 men. He accepted the kings pardon and became a successful officer.
