Civilization V Customisation Wiki

Zheng under Koxinga is a custom civilization by ExplosiveWatermelon and Arilasqueto.



Zheng is the family name of the house of Koxinga. The kingdom of Tungning (founded by Koxinga, but not given the name until his successor) is sometimes referred to as the Kingdom of Zheng, after the ruling dynasty. The kingdom originally was just an extension of Koxinga's military force, but after his death, his son Zheng Jing followed a policy of independence. However, the Kingdom did not last long- a former admiral loyal to the Zheng family, Shi Lang, ended up assisting the Qing during their subjugation of the island realm. The kingdom of Zheng was dissolved in 1683.


Koxinga was a renowned Ming General, Admiral, and Pirate who eventually founded the Kingdom of Zheng, later known as Tungning, on the island of Taiwan.

Dawn of Man[]

May your loyalty guide you, lord Koxinga. Your childhood was a curious one- your mother was Japanese, and your father was the renowned pirate Zheng Zhilong. You grew up learning the ways of Bushido, and dreaming of your homeland in China. When you took over your father’s fleet, you pursued a restoration of the Ming dynasty- and when that failed, you instead sailed your ships to Formosa and brought down the Dutch tyranny. Your early death ultimately meant your accomplishments were cut short, and yet the people of modern China and Japan still hold you in great prestige.

Introduction: I, the proud warrior Koxinga, welcome you. Hm? Not used to meetings at sea?

Introduction: I, Chenggong of the Zheng family, have come to greet you personally. Let us hope to find mutual grounds in the restoration of justice.

Defeat: Hm? So my time has come? I'd much rather go out fighting, but I suppose not all of my men feel the same.
