Lapu-lapu



He was the Chief of Mactan Island and was known as the First Filipino hero who led the first successful Filipino armed resistance against Spanish aggression.

When Ferdinand Magellan, landed in Cebu, he ordered Filipinos to honor the king of Spain.  Chief Lapu-Lapu refused his demand. Magellan, along with 60 soldiers, met Lapu-Lapu in Mactan Island for a battle. 

Lapu-lapu fought and killed Magellan and 15 of his men were killed in a battle in Mactan on April 27, 1521.
