Known by its unmistakable aroma and its unique shape, the sixth episode of “Browsing around the clove” is baptized as star anise.

The Armada de Molucca will arrive to The Philippines, (A.K.A Maharlika) They will be greeted by the Rajah Humabon. Magellan will seal an alliance with the local leader as Stefan Zweig described:

Großartiger ist selten eine Tat vollendet worden. Magellan hat alles erreicht. Die Durchfahrt ist gefunden, das andere Ende der Erde berührt. Neue Inseln von großem Reichtum sind für die Krone von Kastilien gewonnen, unzählige Seelen von Heiden für seinen Gott, und all dies – Triumph im Triumph! –, ohne einen Tropfen Blut vergossen zu haben. Gott hat dem Gläubigen beigestanden. Und dieser Glaube wird sein Verhängnis.

This blood compact had two principles. The Islanders will be converted to Catholicism and subjugated into the Hispanic Monarchy. Magellan, on the other hand, will have to convince the local leaders to tribute the king. Lapu-Lapu, the chief of the small island of Mactan will refuse to do so.
