Lakandula's Family History

The Lakan Dula descendants are mostly found in the Kapampangan region.[3] He fathered at least four sons, including Datu Dionisio Capulong of Candaba, Datu Phelipe Salonga of Pulu, Datu Magat Salamat of Tondo and Martín Lakandula who entered the Augustinian monastery to become a priest in 1590.[3] He had one daughter by the name of María Poloin who married Alonso Talabos. In 1587, his sons Magat Salamat, Dionisio Capulong and Phelipe Salonga, along with his nephew Augustin de Legazpi and the lords of Pandacan, Marikina, Navotas and Bulacan participated in what has since been called the "revolt of the Lakans" and were all punished by the Spanish authorities. Augustin de Legazpi was hanged and his head cut off and exposed on the gibbet in an iron cage. His properties were seized by the Spanish authorities and his lands plowed and sown with salt so that they would remain barren. Dionisio Capulong, then Datu of Candaba, was exiled from his town and paid a heavy fine. Governor-General de Vera eventually pardoned him. Later, he served as a guide and interpreter for two Spanish expeditions into Igorot country in 1591 and 1594. Felipe Salonga, then chief of Polo, was exiled to Mexico and was thus one of the very first Filipinos to settle in there. Wenceslao E. Retana relates that "Magat Salamat was condemned to death. His goods were to be employed for erection of the new fortress of this city (Manila). He appealed to the royal Audiencia, but the case was remitted to the governor, in order that justice might be done- except that the goods were to be set aside for the treasury. The sentence was executed."[4] |url= |title=Magat Salamat |author=Tomas L. |accessdate=2008-07-14}}</ref> A grandson of Lakan Dula, a mestizo by the name of David Dula y Goiti, escaped the persecution of the descendants of Lakan Dula by settling in Isla de Batag, Northern Samar and settled in a place now called Candawid.[5][6] He was imprisoned by Spanish soldiers in Palapag and was executed together with several followers. They were charged of treason with planning to attack the Spanish settlement. The current David Dulay descendants are the children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren of Petre, Hilario father of Eleuterio Dulay, Sr. of Laoang, N. Samar and a mayor for more than 20 years during the Marcos Regime died of heart ailment. The other descendants are those carrying the surname Dula related to Councilor Rufo Dula. Wishing to avoid the persecution experienced by his latter ancestors, Lakan Dula's great grandson Juan Macapagal aided the Spanish authorities in suppressing the 1660 Kapampangan revolt of Francisco Maniago and the Pangasinan revolt of Andrés Malong and the 1661 Ilocano revolt.[7]Because of his service to the Spanish crown, the Spanish authorities revived the special privileges offered by the Spanish crown to Lakan Dula and his descendants spread across the province of Pampanga.[3] A Gremio de Lakandulas was created in 1758 to protect the privileges of the Kapampangan descendants of Lakandula.[3] During the British occupation of Manila in 1762-1764, the descendants of Lakan Dula, now located in the province of Pampanga, formed a group of volunteers to fight the British and were granted autonomy by Governor General Simón de Anda y Salazar.

Lakandula the Dragon Slayer

Lakan Dula or Rajah Lakandula (b. early 16th century - d. 1575) was the great ruler of the Muslim community along the Pasig River during the arrival of the Spaniards in the Philippines. A native of Tondo, then known as Tondok, he was a descendant of the king of Namayan who lived about a two centuries earlier than him. The title, Lakan, is the Kapampangan equivalent of Rajah. Actually, there were three Muslim leaders in Manila before Martin de Goiti and Juan de Salcedo and other Spanish conquistadors came to conquer the islands. Dula fought the invaders but decided to surrender and befriended them. He sailed to Bulacan to persuade the natives to submit to the Spanish rule. In 1571, he made a peace pact with Miguel Lopez de Legaspi and handed over his throne. Later, Manila became the capital of the Spanish colony. When the Chinese pirate Limahong came to Manila to conquer, Lakan Dula helped repel the attack. He was later baptized but attempts to fully convert him into a Christian failed, because he claimed that he was too old to change gods. At his burial, cannons were fired and nine-day masses where held in his honor by the Spaniards.
