via Esquire PH, 28 July 2020: New research on the journey of Megallan’s fleet after his death uncover a little-known stopover at Palawan, in Philippines’ southwest.
Very little is known about what happened in the days that followed the death of Ferdinand Magellan in Mactan. But Filipino historians believe the Spanish voyagers made several landings in Palawan, where they were attacked by the local Tagbanwas.
Professor Michael Angelo Doblado, a historian based in Palawan, presented his study to the National Historical Commission of the Philippines in an online seminar on July 20. His study is unprecedented and his findings could rewrite history.
