: When you say famous pirate in south china sea known as koxinga, did you mean famous admiral of the middle kingdom admiral Cheng Ho / Zheng Ho / Tee Ho also known as Sam Po Kong in Semarang?
No. The admiral you are referring to was a muslim eunuch who was awarded the Zheng surname by the Emperor of China.
The pirate (actually son of a pirate) was Cheng
Cheng-Kung, half-Fukienese/half-Japanese who is still revered in Taiwan today.
