Through the two centuries when imperial China ruled Taiwan, few Taiwan-born people could equal the military man Wang Delu in rank or prestige. Wang’s career on both land and sea brought him the admiration of his superiors and ended with him holding one of the highest titles of honor in the land. Wang’s hometown in southern Taiwan is now home to the National Palace Museum’s southern branch, and this year, the museum has opened a special exhibit following the rise of this proud local son. Last week, assistant museum researcher Wang Chien-yu joined us to discuss Wang’s early life. Today, Mr. Wang joins us again to discuss a new phase in this distinguished career- Wang Delu’s years as a pirate hunter and his later life.
