Taiwan belonged to Japan in 1900, as a spoil of the Sino-Japanese War of 1895. When World War II ended, Taiwan returned to Chinese rule. The present political status of Taiwan is controversial.
Taiwan is also known as Formosa, especially in the past (from Portuguese: Ilha Formosa, "Beautiful Island").
