Verse 1

On an unknown land in Sambali or Sanfotsi the latter part of the 13th century, a woman would refuse the advances of a Prince of Singhasari, she knew what he was upto and instead married a Mongol Prince instead.

The marriage was between this unknown noblewoman from Sambali and a prince of the Mongols.

According to the epic of Biag ni Erdine the Princess or Noblewoman and she would choose to be single until a suitable suitor found and her hand was competed by many men two notable men one from Singhasari and one from the Mongols, the Princess would choose the Mongol Prince instead of the Javanese Prince.

the marriage between this woman and the mongolian prince identified in the legends as Erdine was seen as a scandal and kublai khan would accept the marriage in order to strengthen the ties of this neighboring country with the Mongols.

Sambali or Sanfotsi would be known as a barbarian land for the Chinese for a long time and the Mongols would bring their influence to Sambali, the other influence to Sambali was Sumatran and Javan influence but that would shift to Sumatran and Mongolian Influence.

The Mongol and the woman would instead stay in Sambali and their children would be given lands in the land of his bride.

Verse 2

According to Visayan folklore, Sri Lumay was a half-Tamil & half-Malay from Sumatra, who settled in the Visayas, and had several sons. One of his sons was Sri Alho, who ruled a land known as Sialo which included the present-day towns of Carcar and Santander in the southern region of Cebu.

The newly found kingdom in Sugbu would be in odds with the Kingdoms in the lands of the Iranon and would have an alliance with the Kingdom of Butuan which lots of lands in the island which they would share with the Iranon and they are in the height of their supremacy and extended down to the south in the gulf of Butuan.

People from Butuan would also migrate to the Sulu archipelago and the Jambangan Peninsula inhabited by Subanen who are a part of the Iranon.

The Iranon statelets and the Kingdom of Sugbu would fight with no end while the Kingdom of Butuan would have control of many lands in the Island of Maranon which they share with the Iranons and even trade with the Chinese dynasty of Yuan.

The Iranons would engage trade with the Borneans at this point in time.

Verse 3

Unifying rebel groups in Southern China and establishing the Ming dynasty, Zhu Yuanzhang – crowned as the Hongwu Emperor – conducted military expeditions to North China and defeated the Yuan army in 1368. When Köke Temür lost battles against the Ming general Xu Da and Ming troops approached Hebei, Toghon Temür gave up Khanbaliq and fled to his summer base, Shangdu.

In 1369 when Shangdu also fell under the Ming's occupation, Toghon Temür fled northward to Yingchang, which was located in present-day Inner Mongolia. He died there in 1370; his son succeeded him as Biligtü Khan Ayushiridara and retreated to Karakorum in the same year. The Yuan remnants ruled Mongolia and continued to claim the title of Emperor of China, from which point they are referred to as the Northern Yuan dynasty. He was the longest-lived Mongolian Emperor of Yuan China after Kublai Khan.

At the time of his death, the Mongolia-based empire maintained its influence, stretching the domination from the East Sea to Altai Mountains. There were also pro-Yuan, anti-Ming forces in Yunnan and Guizhou. Even though its control over China had not been stable yet, the Ming considered that the Yuan lost the Mandate of Heaven when it abandoned Khanbaliq, and that the Yuan was overthrown in 1368. The Ming did not treat Toghon Temür after 1368 and his successor Ayushiridar as legitimate emperors.

The Ming gave Toghon Temür the posthumous name Shundi (順帝), which implied that he followed the Mandate of Heaven ceding his empire to the Ming. But the Northern Yuan dynasty gave him their own posthumous name Xuanren Pu Xiao Huangdi (宣仁普孝皇帝) and temple name Huizong (惠宗).

Even after Toghon Temür, there was still Yuan resistance to the Ming in the south. In southwestern China, Basalawarmi, the self-styled "Prince of Liang", established a Yuan resistance movement in Yunnan and Guizhou that was not put down until 1381.

Due to the marriage of the Mongols in the land of Sambali and due to the relations with Butuan many of the Mongols would flee to Sambali, Sugbu and Butuan in the South west of China during the unrest during the latter part of Toghon Temur and during the reign of Hongwu Emperor.

Verse 4

Due to the end of Sambali’s or Sanfotsi’s relationship with the Mongols, its relationship with the Empire of Singhasari and the Kingdom of Pasai would become better, the Land of Sambali and Land of Sulu would be reached by the religion of Islam on the latter part of the 14th century, while Kumintang or Mayi would have healthy trading relations with the Chinese as well as the Kingdom of Butuan.

Even due to the Mongol influence on Sambali, Sulu shifting away to Sumatran there would still be evidences via Archeology and artefacts and in culture, the lands of Sambali and Sulu would Islamize rapidly and the Sultanates of Sambali and Sulu were established.

On the turn of the 15th century The Sultanate of Sambali would destroy the Wukou influence on their lands due to the Wukou raids, and the Wukou raids being expelled by the Sultanate of Sambali, while Emperor Yongle would attempt to conquer the Land of Kumintang in the South of the Sultanate of Sambali, however the Sultanate of Sulu would be the intermediary of China and the Malay world.

Verse 8

Evidence indicates that Butuan was in contact with the Song dynasty of China by at least 1001 AD. The Chinese annal Song Shih recorded the first appearance of a Butuan tributary mission (Li Yui-han 李竾罕 and Jiaminan) at the Chinese Imperial Court on March 17, 1001 AD and it described Butuan (P'u-tuan) as a small Hindu country with a Buddhist monarchy in the sea that had a regular connection with the Champa kingdom and intermittent contact with China under the Rajah named Kiling. The rajah sent an envoy under I-hsu-han, with a formal memorial requesting equal status in court protocol with the Champa envoy. The request was denied later by the Imperial court, mainly because of favoritism over Champa.

A new ruler with the Indianized name Sri Bata Shaja later succeeded in attaining diplomatic equality with Champa by sending the flamboyant ambassador Likanhsieh. Likanhsieh shocked the Emperor Zhenzong by presenting a memorial engraved on a gold tablet, some white dragon (Bailong 白龍) camphor, Moluccan cloves, and a South Sea slave at the eve of an important ceremonial state sacrifice. This display of irreverence sparked interests from China over the small Rajahnate and the diplomatic relations between the two polities reached its peak during the Yuan dynasty.

The Kingdom of Butuan would have good relations with the new Ming regime and the Sultanate of Sulu would form due to migrants from Butuan to Sulu and the muslim missionaries in the later 14th century.

According to Visayan folklore, Sri Lumay was a half-Tamil & half-Malay from Sumatra, who settled in the Visayas, and had several sons. One of his sons was Sri Alho, who ruled a land known as Sialo which included the present-day towns of Carcar and Santander in the southern region of Cebu. Sri Ukob ruled a polity known as Nahalin in the north, which included the present-day towns of Consolación, Liloan, Compostela, Danao, Carmen and Bantayan, the Rajahs of Sugbu would expand in the area between Butuan and Kumintang uniting the Visayans.

Verse 5

Born in Poznań, Ryksa was the only child born from her parents' marriage. She was named after her mother, who died after her birth, although the exact date is unknown (probably between 1289-1292). During her first years of life, she was raised by her paternal aunt Anna in the Cistercian monastery in Owińska, where she was the Abbess. It was probably there that Ryksa received the news of her father's failed kidnapping and murder on 8 February 1296 in Rogoźno. The death of the Polish King completely changed the geopolitical situation in this part of Europe, and also clearly influenced the fate of the now orphaned young princess, who was now placed under the care of her stepmother Margaret of Brandenburg, member of the House of Ascania (who took part in the conspiracy to kill Przemysł II). During the marriage ceremony of Przemysł II and Margaret (bef. 13 April 1293), Ryksa was betrothed to Otto of Brandenburg-Salzwedel (Margaret's brother), so her stepmother was also her future sister-in-law. Although Margaret received parts of Greater Poland as her Oprawa wdowia, shortly after her husband's death, and for unknown reasons, she returned to Brandenburg, taking Ryksa with her. Otto married Ryksa on 1303 which would mean that Brandenburg would have interests in Greater Poland, she would be widowed, without a child and remarried to Stephen of Poland on 1309, which would be quite fruitful, Kunigunde and Elizabeth would produce good marriages to the Duke of Swidnica and the King of Hungary, despite Ryksa giving birth to three children, Margaret of Poland(b. 1310)(wife of Valdemar III of Denmark), Casimir III(b. 1313) and Vladislaus(1320), she would die after the birth of Vladislaus and her husband takes the Polish throne on 1333.

Margaret of Burgundy, the only daughter of Amadeus I of Burgundy(the only son of Joan of Burgundy and John of Savoy) and descendant of Mahaut of Artois would marry Henry III of France on 1355, adding the Burgundian possessions to the Anglo-French realm.

The Purchase of the Dauphine was the last part of the expansion of the Plantagenets in Gaul on 1350.

Verse 9

A group of powerful lords—including the Šubići, Kőszegis and Csáks—urged Charles II of Naples to send his grandson, the 12-year-old Charles Robert, to Hungary in order to become king. The young Charles Robert's ship would sink. Most Croatian and Slavonian lords and all Dalmatian towns but Trogir who recognized him as king were disappointed and sad about death. Andrew's envoy to the Holy See noted that Pope Boniface VIII did not support Charles Robert's adventure, Andrew III died in Buda Castle on 14 January 1301. According to historians Attila Zsoldos and Gyula Kristó, the contemporaneous gossip suggesting that Andrew was poisoned cannot be proved.

Andrew's first wife, Fenenna of Kuyavia, gave birth to a daughter, Elizabeth of Hungary, in 1291 or 1292, but died in 1295. Elizabeth of Hungary became engaged to Wenceslaus, the heir to Wenceslaus II of Bohemia, in 1298, and married her on 1305, despite the opposition of Agnes of Austria, her own stepmother, starting the union of Bohemia and Hungary.
