When Spain ruled the Philippines, a Chinese pirate named Limahong invaded the northern Philippine islands. He was well known as a warlord. When Limahong was sailing, he ran into merchant ships. He then learned that they came from a place that was unprotected. So he decided to invade the city of Manila. But the Spanish heard of this, And they battled to protect the Philippines. Though Limahong didn’t die in that battle, Most of Limahong’s men died in that battle. People call this the red sea incident.

( Manila is the capital of the Philippines)
