It looks like a, Ma
Zheng He was born into a Muslim family in 1371, near a southern region of China. At that time his real name was, Ma He. He changed it later on in the story.
At a young age, Zheng He's town was raided, and Zheng was captured and sent to the imperial house hold in the capital.
At the capital in the imperial house hold, Zheng He was promoted later on to a higher place in government. And they changed his name to Zheng He.
They sent out a fleet of ships, and chose Zheng He to lead the fleet on this huge expedition to travel the world and trade. (p.s. He brought home a giraffe from Africa)
His expedition lasted 1405-1433 when Zheng He died, in 1433. We will always remember what he did, which was help spread Islam, during his expedition, especially in South East Asia.
Indonesia has the largest Muslim population of any nation in the world, and much of that is because of the tributes and activities from Zheng He.
