Original Name: 
Chinese Name: 

A maritime polity recorded in MSL references extending from 1405 to 1407. See Wang Gungwu (1968 and 1970). It has been suggested elsewhere (Wade 1986) that this refers to the polity of Sulu, and that it is also the origin, as the result of copyist error, of the accounts of the non-existent Ming polity of Po-luo (婆羅). For information on further Chinese sources relating to this polity, see Chen, Xie and Lu (1986; 731-32).
