Leyte has a colourful history. Leyteños, like the Samareños when it comes to their
province, like to point out of that their forebear were among the first to welcome the
Spaniards but they were also among the first to resist the invaders. Leyte was one of the
provinces where the early seeds of nationalism were
In 1521, Magellan sailed from the island of Homonhon, Samar
to
the
island of
Limasawa, Leyte, entered into a blood compact with Rajah Kolambu. On Eastern Sunday,
March 31, of that year, was celebrated the First Mass in the Philippines. Some historical
researchers, however, are now disputing this.
The next century witnessed a religious uprising lead by Bancao, the Limasawa chief,
and his high priest, Pagail. The revolt began in Carigara and spread to neighboring towns
before it was quelled. 27 years after the 1622 uprising, another revolt hit Leyte - an offshoot
of the Sumoroy rebellion then simmering in Samar. And in the center of the disturbances, the
village of Bacor, rebels burned the church and its convent.
By 1768, Leyte, now separated from Samar, became a politico-military province. The
set up continued until the end of Spanish rule, when Gen. Vicente Lukban took over Leyte and
Samar in the name of the Revolutionary Government.
On October 20, 1944, Gen. Mac Arthur, at the head of the largest US fleet of transport
and warships, and accompanied by Commonwealth President Sergio Osmeña and Gen Carlos
P. Romulo, landed on Palo, Leyte to reclaim the Philippines from the Japanese.
On May 22, 1959, the province was divided into Leyte and southern Leyte.
"Waray" is generally spoken by the people of Leyte except those who live in the western side
who generally speak Cebuan
