Template talk:History of Taiwan

I propose to remove Kingdom of Middag from the list of historical periods because:
- the date of 1540 is unfounded; nothing is known of Middag before the Dutch arrived.
- there is no reason to single them out from among the 11 "shires or provinces" in David Wright's account from the 1640s.
- histories of Taiwan do not give them this treatment. Kanguole 14:46, 5 May 2012 (UTC)
The end date of 1732 apparently has no basis either; it is just the date the Qing suppressed a rebellion in the area. Kanguole 09:29, 9 May 2012 (UTC)
