MARCH 29, 1521
Rajah Kolambu, chieftain of
Limasawa Island along with his brother Rajah Siagu of Butuan and
Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan (1480 - April 27, 1521) sealed
their friendship through a blood compact. Earlier, the natives were
given gifts as they met the Spaniards. Kolambu on the other hand offered
Magellan a basket of ginger and a gold bar which he refused to accept.
