Portuguese Macau is a term of Macau being a colony, and later, an overseas territory of Portugal. Besides Hong Kong which is administered by Great Britain, this is one of the European colonies in China.

History Edit

Portuguese traders first settled in Macau in the 16th century. In 1557 Macau was rented to Portugal by the Chinese empire as a trading port. The Portuguese administered the city under Chinese authority and sovereignty until 1887, when Macau became a colony of the Portuguese empire.

After some agreements with China, Macau is expected to be returned to the Chinese in 1999.

World War III Edit

It is highly likely China may have entered and taken Macau back after the country declared war against the United States and possibly NATO. This is highly likely since there have been no Portuguese military installations in Macau since 1974, which means the People's Liberation Army can easily take the island without any resistance.
