If you think Columbus was bad ...

The Filipino Hero Who Killed Ferdinand Magellan
Ferdinand Magellan is remembered in the west as the intrepid Portuguese explorer who led the first voyage to circumnavigate the globe, but for the Philippines he is just another white man who fell to his death attempting to conquer lands that did not belong to him. The real hero—for the Filipinos—is Lapu-Lapu, the tribal chief who famously vanquished Magellan becoming the first Filipino hero to successfully resist colonization by a foreign power. Magellan’s conflict with the proud and unyielding chief resulted in his death, which cut short Magellan’s goals of becoming the first person in the world to circumnavigate the world.

Well heck, nobody even told me that Ferdinand didn't make it all the way! Interesting.

Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

It isn't personal, gnome, it's strictly business.

However the country is still named after the late King of Spain, and the predominant religion is Catholicism (80% of the population). (Another 10% are protestant Christians.)
