In the ancient times, the Philippines is composed of different kingdoms. The local are having their own tradition, culture, beliefs, and rituals. They lived peacefully until the time that the Philippines was discovered by Magellan. Before the arrival of the Portuguese explorer "Magellan" under the flagship of Spain, Kingdoms already exists. one of the oldest Kingdom is the Kingdom of Butuan in the Mindanao Island.

When the Spaniards invaded the Philippines, They control over everything and exploits all the minerals and resources of the country. Spain erased all the history of the country but were recently found out that before the arrival of Magellan, the country already exist after the Antique Gold Royal Crown and Gold Royal belt of the king in Kingdom of Butuan discovered by the local farmers of Butuan, Philippines.

Before the Spaniard founding of the Philippines; the Islands were called "LUZVIMINDA BORNEO" (Luzon, Visayas, Mindanao and Borneo) a full name of a woman which is derived from the 3 biggest island of the country; Luzon , Visayas, Mindanao and the North Borneo or (Sabah). The Luzviminda Borneo is also know as "Pearl of the Orient" or Perlas ng Silangan. The name Philippines is only given as official name of the country by the Governador General to honor his king of Spain Philip and they called Philippians and then into Philippines.

During the 18th and 19th century, he first recorded history of the Philippines as allowed by the Spain to be known by the Philippine Nations starts with the arrival of Ferdinand Magellan in 1521. The Spanish colonization officially began in 1565 with the arrival of Miguel López de Legazpi.

The Philippines declared independence from Spain in 1898 after a revolution that lasted 2 years. In the same year the Spanish handed over the Philippines to the United States as compensation for the Spanish American War (Treaty of Paris).

Partial self-government under U.S. supervision started in 1935, but was stopped by the Japanese attack and occupation of the Philippines in World War II. The Philippines was given full independence in 1946.

The 1960s and early 1970s saw the beginning of student activism and civil unrest, prompting President Ferdinand Marcos to declare martial law in 1972. The 1986 EDSA Revolution brought about the demise of Marcos and a return to democracy for the Philippines
