A year in History:

1433

* The Ming Dynasty fleet disbanded in 1433 after the last expedition led by Admiral Zheng He. Maybe the greatest fleet in all of history ended which gave power to other rivaling countries in the Indian Ocean such as Portugal, who would soon dominate the trade market for a period of time. Zheng He also died this year.

The ships used in Zheng He's fleet
