Why start at Portuguese? There were Chinese living in Penghu and administering it long before the first date mentioned here. There were records of sightings of Taiwan and associated islands by Chinese sources long before the first date here, too.

1684: April, Taiwan is made a prefecture of Fujian to prevent the island from falling into foreign hands again. Shih Lang cites sulfur as a strategic commodity to retain the island.

This one will slap those T.I.er revisionists good.

1994: March 31, twenty-four Taiwanese tourists are robbed and murdered in the Thousand Island Lake Incident in which the People's Liberation Army was heavily involved.

Never heard of this. PLA was heavily involved how?
And then Master mused, "I hate it when they say 'we human' this, 'we human' that. I am Taiwanese, not human!"

Really, does it precede 1544? I mean you're making this a finders keepers sort of thing. So whatever lands that Chinese people see belongs to China forever? Wow. "That outta slap those T.I.er revisionists good." :wink: What about the part where a Chinese official suddenly decides that all Taiwanese are no longer foreigners but "Han"?

Here is a good summary of the last 125 years of Taiwanese history, and the relevant implications of the historical events from the viewpoint of international law --

Thanks!

Maybe this should be translated to Chinese also if a Chinese version is not available. Doubt many of people would know the history in this detail, and I doubt ROC history books would list it as such

First census by Japanese -- literacy rate was much higher, but Japanese counted as "literate" only those literate in Japanese. Excellent work!
