By expounding upon the virtues...

Of the rulers of former dynasties

It is no wonder that within one year

at the imperial academy

The entire city of Nanjing all knew

The greatness of Zheng Sen

Thank you your majesty

The Ming dynasty Emperor Longwu

confers upon Zheng Sen...

The emperor's surname Zhu

the first name Chenggong...

And the title Earl of Loyalty

Zheng Chenggong, the Imperial Namekeeper!

Your father is already the Commanding General

of Fujian Province

I appoint you in charge of military governors...

Commanding the lmperial Army

We kowtow to our benevolent majesty!

On your feet

Zheng Zhilong...

I have seen today's report from Shaanxi Province

The Qing troops have taken the cities Nanking...

As well as Zhengjiang Shaoxing and Hangzhou


They're encamped at the border

between Zhejiang and Fujian Provinces

War is now at our doorstep

Your majesty

dispatching Li Wai to strengthen the front line

My imperial army is at your command...

Why do you only hold recuse

but not attack Qing Army?

Your majesty

The Qing Army comes from the north

In Fujian, mountains surround us on three sides...

The ocean surrounds the fourth side

Fujian is difficult to attack and easy to defend

Fujian's prosperity depends entirely

on maritime trade with the world

During the reign of Emperor Chongzhen...

According to the imperial ban on maritime trade

Only Fujian was permitted

to continue trading with the world

I believe...

Our most urgent task

is to protect our home province

guarantee the continuation of maritime trade


Zheng Zhilong...

I could not have become emperor

without your support...

Now, most of China is not under my rule

Why should you remain in my service?

I promise to hold secure Fujian Province

Are you only concerned about Fujian?
