From the moment the period that now bears his name in China’s history ended, Zheng He has been an enigma for politicians and historians alike. In the post Imperial period, Sun Yat-Sen referred to him as an example of China’s maritime past, technical ingenuity, and therefore an enduring symbol of national pride. For China’s Republican leader, reference to Zheng He in 1918 was a natural extension of his upbringing in Cuiheng, Guangdong, a village which for centuries was situated near a base of trade and fishing operations into the South China Sea, long known to Westerners as Canton, with its nearby islands of Macau and Hong Kong. As China emerged from civil war in 1949, national pride would be an enduring light after decades of internal turmoil
