Description

Bohol, 1565

Seeking to befriend the local populace, Miguel Lopez de Legazpi entered into a blood compact with Rajah Sikatuna from the island of Bohol. This act of brotherhood appeased the locals, who had suffered during previous encounters with Spanish expeditionary forces. It marked the beginning of Spanish colonial rule in the Philippines, named after King Philip II.
