    Permanent not Temporary

    On 1661, after the defeat of Maniago, due to the town leaders in Pampanga being deceived by the Spanish, Maniago decided to go to his ally, Andres Malong who also led a rebellion in the Island centered in Pangasinan since the majority of his faction had already surrendered to the Spanish, in this point in time there is a leader of this revolt in Ilocos named Almazan.

    The Maniago-Malong revolt have been considered a threat to the Spanish control in Luzon due to the people actually supporting it and because the Spanish abandoned their war against the moros in Mindanao, the revolt caused the Spanish to lose most of their gains in the wars against the moros, this was due to the fact that the revolt became a threat to the Spanish rule in Manila and the Manila-Acapulco trade.

    After the time the Maniago-Malong revolt change its center to Pangasinan, the Chinese in the island of gold also revolted which coincided with the victory of Koxinga in the North.

    The Merdicas (also spelled Mardicas or Mardikas) were Catholic natives of the islands of Ternate and Tidore of the Moluccas, converted during the Portuguese occupation of the islands by Jesuit missionaries. The islands were later captured by the Spanish who vied for their control with the Dutch. In 1663, the Spanish garrison in Ternate were forced to pull out to defend Manila against the Maniago-Malong revolt (sacrificing the Moluccas to the Dutch in doing so), the Pagans and Koxinga. Several Merdicas volunteered to help, eventually being resettled in a sandbar near the mouth of the Maragondon river (known as the Barra de Maragondon) and Tanza, Cavite, Manila.

    Although the Spanish were able to defeat the leaders Maniago-Malong in Luzon, namely Maniago, Malong and Almazan in 1661, when the Spanish had a solid army with collaborators, Merdicas and Spanish, however this revolt would be considered as a beginning of the end of the Spanish in Saludong or Luzon.

    The remnants of the revolt and the people that organized the revolt and the pagans or Hindus in Saludong or Luzon which are led by nobles related to the rulers of the old Majapahitan Empire would later strengthen in the second half of 1660's.

    Spain is currently ruled by Philip III, the Spanish had experienced the loss of their rule in Ternate and most of Mindanao as well as their loss of Portugal and is also suffering the gradual loss of their rule in Luzon/Nueva Castilla.

    Due to the rule in Luzon being unstable, the Spanish would be more desperate in clinging to the Manila-Acapulco trade.

    While the Spanish ruled parts of Luzon or Saludong would have unstably ruled by the Spanish, the people in the areas not ruled by the Spanish continued their Polygamy and people had many children although not all of the children of the people who had many children survived to adulthood, the people of the Interior of Saludong that are multiplying like rabbits and living independently compared to the Christians living in the mercy of the Spanish and their nobles who do tribute work.

    In this point some of the Christian Peasants become influenced by the Pagans, however, the Christians are still having problems in working the fields for their own boss in the haciendas and the nobles who only have a string hold on their people and so does the Spanish control in Luzon.

    At this point there are many threats to the Spanish rule in Luzon which are the Pagans living there because the Pagan population had started to double in the basin of the Cagayan river valley and Pampanga river valley.

    The Peasants have learned of their rights and periodic revolts and riots happen and the Pagans in inner luzon would mean the weakening of the Spanish rule, the slowly losing control of the Spanish in Luzon was irreversible due to the change in the Peasants, while Visayas and the Spanish ruled Mindanao are more tightly integrated in the Spanish yoke, it would just be time before a great man expel the Spanish in Manila.

    On 1670, during the reign of the inbred Charles II, The Spanish had completely lost control of more of the Upper Reaches of Cagayan Valley due to the Gaddangs and Irrayas attacking Tuguegarao and Bolo area and reclaimed it on 1670 expelling the Ibanag settlers north, the Irraya reclaimed Tuguegarao as their territory and the Irraya of the areas of Tuguegarao and Bolo would be the only one remained there and the capital of the Cagayan Province became Lallo. The Spanish would view this as a painful defeat and the proof of the Spanish weakness in the island and the natives would realize this and the fact that they can defeat the spanish and expel them, the Ibanags would support the revolt as well in their home territory in the area of Lallo and Aparri, the same would happen to the Kapampangans of the Macabebe area.

    On 1673 The irritated and the rebels formerly affiliated with the Malong revolt and the pagans/hindus and their leaders Hindu nobles in Luzon or Saludong(which include rump remnants of the Kingdoms of Sapa and Kaboloan) connected to the old Majapahit Empire start to expel the Spanish in the coastal parts of Saludong and Manila Bay which the Spanish occupy, it would be revealed that one of the reasons of the Dutch withdrawal from Taiwan is their alliance with the nobles of Luzon(Saludong).

    On 1673, Sultan Kudarat dies replaced by Sultan Dundang Tidulay who would continue the policies of Sultan Kudarat against the Spanish.

    It turned out that the Northern Luzon/Saludongese Nobles (Nobles which have ties with the Javanese Majapahit Empire) the Hindus of Northern Luzon and the rebels against the Spanish have a tactical alliance with the Dutch and the Moros in the South and it has been revealed that the Dutch and the rebels are now permanent allies and committed to expelling the Spanish from the island of Saludong and Mindanao and it has been revealed that aiding them is one of the reasons why the Dutch left Taiwan even if they can hold the island against Koxinga again, the Javanese troops and the Pampanger Mercenaries led by the Dutch arrive in Saludong in 1675 and joined the Northern Luzon rebels, the Nobles of Northern Luzon and the pagans in expelling the Spanish from Saludong, in the same time the Muslims of the south are joined by the Dutch and the some of the Christians of the Ibanags and Kapampangans start to revert to Islam at this point and interbreed with the Javanese troops who remained and intermarried with the Irraya, Ibanags and Kapampangan population of Saludong.

    The Spanish would completely lose the Provinces of Cagayan and Pampanga to the Dutch-Saludongese rebel alliance and completely liberated Cagayan and Pampanga in the late 1670's from the Spanish while the Moros hammer Mariveles and Ilocos areas.

    The Dutch-Saludongese and Mataram troops would liberate Pangasinan or Kaboloan proper and Zambales in the 1670's after Cagayan and Pampanga are liberated and the people of Saludong that they are now independent after it.

    The Spanish armies would retreat from Saludong as they are defeated by the Hindus and the Christian rebels in Saludong which are allied with the Dutch, the people of Saludong would exclaim that victory is theirs and that they had already defeated the Spanish and expelled them out of the Archipelago.

    A government had been formed by the rebels since the start of the revolt and it would be ruled by a council of elders and they already have a leader amongst them who is a scion of the old Kingdoms of Sapa and Kaboloan and also the former people in the Maniago-Almazan-Malong revolt will take key positions in the government, however the Kingdom will be a part of the Dutch empire like their sister Kingdoms in Java.

    The Spanish would retreat to manila after their defeats with the Saludongese but the worst is yet to come to them as the Chinese in the area that they already have already find a way to evict the Spanish since the Spanish are already weakened and they would rebel and invite Koxinga's son Zheng Jing and Koxinga himself to come to their area who had already said to want to save them from the Spanish

    The Independence struggle and rebellion would be remembered very much in the former spanish colony of the Philippines, however the natives of Tungning and the remaining Catholic Christians of Saludong would remember the Spanish times fondly compared to that of the Muslims and Hindus of Saludong.

    The Rump Kingdom of Madya-as would take over Western Visayas on 1670 and later the Dagohoy revolt take over in Cebu, due to them knowning that the Spanish are weakening in the Philippines, the area have been also rebelling as well during that time.

    The Spanish would lose Ilocos and Mariveles to Moro pirates and on 1680, Koxinga would conquer Manila and sack Manila on 1681 causing the Spanish to lose Manila on the same year and started resettling the area with Ming Loyalists and abandoning Taiwan, the Spanish would retreat to Batangas and Camarines.

    On 1684, the Qing would learn that the Kingdom of Tungning had left Taiwan and decided that they would not Conquer Taiwan which would remain uncolonized till the British would notice of the area, the Qing would contact the Borneans who have claims in the area.

    On 1686, the Spanish would be expelled from Luzon by a Tungning-Dutch alliance in 1686, conquring Batangas, Albay and Camarines, however Brunei would successfully retake the areas taken earlier by the Spanish.

    On 1687, the Moros from Maguindanao would conquer Cebu and Zamboanga which would mean the death of the former colony of the Philippines that the Spanish had established more than a hundred of years ago, only the areas of Samar and Leyte would remain under the Spanish at this point but the Tungning would also attack in causing the Spanish to lose the Philippines completely in 1690.

    The Spanish believed the propaganda that it is only the chinese who are the threat to the Spanish, they wanted to hide the threat that is the Saludongese people who wanted to expel them like in Ternate, the Spanish foolishly made others that Saludong or Celudon and Luzon are one and the same when the two are not one and the same.

    This is the End of the Former Spanish colony formerly called the Philippines.

    On the same time the Mon of Ramanya or Monland would continue the headless revolt of the Mons in Taungoo of the Bamar, whose initial leaders have been killed would reorganize, the revolt would have support of the Thais who wanted to create a buffer state between the Thais and the Bamar, the Bamar would reestablish their state as a buffer state between the Bamar and the Mons, the Mons have a lot of parallelism with the Saludongese(Sapa) people, the Mon people would regain independence in 1670 as a buffer state by the Thais.

    The Taungoo Kingdom would be terrorized by the Ming loyalists as well destabilizing their state like the Spanish were terrorized by the Chinese in the Philippines which would help the Mons in the long term.

    The Spanish under Charles III on 1690's would feel embarrassment over the loss of the Philippines and the loss of the trade with China and the Ming loyalists, Hindus with associated Christian rebels and Muslims expelling them from the Philippines.

    After the expulsion of the Spanish in the Philippines the Pagan population in Saludong experienced a boom which would dilute the christian population making Saludong a predominantly pagan and hindu country in the future and some of the former muslim population would revert to Islam in the decades following the demise of the Spanish rule and the remaining Christians would convert to Protestantism.

    The Spanish would feel the humiliation brought to them by the Ming loyalists, the Moros and the Christian rebels in Luzon that fused with the Hindus who kicked the Spanish in their former Spanish Philippines.
