"Datu Lapu-lapu was the Chieftain of Maktan, known to Filipinos as the First Defender of Filipino Freedom, although technically, the Philippines wasn't the Philippines yet during his time. Lapu-lapu killed Magellan in a fierce battle in his island of Maktan, or Mactan, whose official name is now Lapu-lapu City.
The question of who killed him or how he died has been an oft-asked question by many. Little is told after the historic battle of Maktan or of how the lived on after Magellan.
I would content myself by saying he probably died of natural causes, whatever that may mean to you."
Although if you ask some ordinary people, they would probably say the "cook/chef" or "tindera sa palengke" hehehe
