Admiral Zheng He was a 14th century Chinese admiral and explorer. Commanded several "tribute voyages", spreading Chinese influence around SE Asia, India and East Africa. Trading posts set up by the Admiral in India and eastern Africa survived as Chinese colonies, notably Chinese East Africa.

Parts of CEA, notably the Kingdom of Madagascar, conquered portions of South Africa and Rhodesia and all of China's Indian colonies were taken by the Federated Kingdoms during the Hunan-Canton war.
