Activity

Taiwan Warship

TAIWAN WARSHIP 1661

Koxinga’s (Zheng Chenggong) ships were a rare example of an officially sanctioned merchant fleet in modern Chinese history. In the 18th century traders crossed the Taiwan Strait for trade, carrying Chinese civilization and economic development to Taiwan. Chinese junks played a significant role.

At a time when Taiwan was not even called Taiwan, the Era of Navigation changed this place where the native Austronesian people lived at peace with the world. First came the Portuguese and Spanish who aroused beautiful imaginings of Formosa; then the Dutch East India Company set up operations here and conducted trade in East Asia; then came Koxinga who established an anti-Qing base; under Qing rule, Taiwan provided the benefits of produce and tax income for Mainland China.

Before large Western steamships appeared in the mid 19th Century, Chinese style junks like Taiwan Warship, functioning as merchant ships, warships, pirate ships and immigrant transport ships, accompanied this island for centuries through different eras.
