    Zheng He was an Admiral of the Chinese fleet who lived 600 years ago. He led seven epic world voyages in the largest wooden ships the world had ever seen.

    Described as 'swimming dragons', the ships carried hundreds of people. On one voyage Zheng He sailed 9000 kilometres from China to Arabia with over 20,000 men.
