History[edit] Tagalog settlement arrived some time in the pre-Spaniard period. The provincial territory began with the organization of the Tondo province and Laguna province
Laguna province
during the Spanish administration. Some of the towns like Pasig, Parañaque, Taytay and Cainta
Cainta
were already thriving. From the reports of the Encomiendas in 1582-1583, the Encomiendas of Moron (Morong) was under the jurisdiction of La Laguna and, the Encomiendas of Passi (Pasig), Taitay (Taytay) and Tagui (Taguig) belonged to the Province of Tondo. It was recorded that in 1591, the Encomiendas of Moron and Taitay were under the jurisdiction of the Franciscan Order
Franciscan Order
in the Province of La Laguna; and the Encomiendas of Nabotas (Navotas), Tambobo (Malabon), Tondo, Parañaque
Parañaque
(then La Huerta, Parañaque), Longalo (Don Galo, Parañaque), Tagui and Pasig were under the jurisdiction of the Augustinians
Augustinians
in the Province of Tondo. In 1853, a new political subdivision was formed. This consisted of the towns of Antipolo
Antipolo
(now a city), Bosoboso, Cainta
Cainta
and Taytay from the Province of Tondo; and the towns of Morong, Baras, Tanay, Pililla, Angono, Binangonan
Binangonan
and Jalajala
Jalajala
from the Province of La Laguna, with the capital at Morong. This district was later changed to Distrito Politico-Militar de Morong after four years. In 1860, by virtue of Circular No. 83, dated September 2, 1859, the Province of Tondo became the Province of Manila. All its towns were placed under the administration, fiscal supervision and control of the Governor
Governor
of the new province. The town of Mariquina (Marikina) became the capital of the Province of Manila
Manila
during the tenure of the revolutionary government of Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo. The Province of Morong had for its capital the town of Antipolo
Antipolo
for the period 1898-1899, and the town of Tanay for 1899-1900. On February 6, 1901, the First Philippine Commission
First Philippine Commission
sought to establish civil government in the country through a provincial organization act after the Filipino-Spanish and Filipino-American conflicts. Therefore, on June 5, 1901, a historic meeting was held at the Pasig Catholic Church for the organization of a civil government in the Provinces of Manila
Manila
and Morong, with 221 delegates in attendance. The first Philippine Commission, headed by William Howard Taft
William Howard Taft
and composed of Commissioners Luke E. Wright, Henry C. Ide, Bernard Moses and Dean C. Worcester, discussed with the Assembly the issue of whether or not to write the Province of Manila
Manila
with Morong Province, was not self-sufficient to operate as a separate province. Although the delegates from Morong, Hilarion Raymundo and José Tupas, objected to the proposal, Juan Sumulong
Juan Sumulong
of Antipolo
Antipolo
strongly advocated the move. After much acrimonious debate and upon the suggestion of Trinidad H. Pardo de Tavera
Trinidad H. Pardo de Tavera
the body agreed on the creation of a new province independent of the Province of Manila. The new province was aptly named after Jose Rizal, the country's national hero. On June 11, 1901, the province of Rizal
Rizal
was officially and legally created by virtue of an Act No. 137 by the First Philippine Commission which during the time was acting as the unicameral legislative body in the island of Luzon. The new province was composed of 29 municipalities, 17 from the old Province of Manila
Manila
(Caloocan, Las Piñas, Mariquina (Marikina), Montalban (Rodriguez), Muntinlupa, Navotas, Novaliches, Parañaque, Pasig, Pateros, Pineda (Pasay), San Felipe Neri (Mandaluyong), San Juan del Monte (San Juan), San Mateo, San Pedro Macati (Makati), Taguig, Tambobong (Malabon)); and 12 from the Politico-Militar District of Morong, (Angono, Baras, Binangonan, Cainta, Antipolo, Cardona, Jalajala, Morong, Pililla, Tanay, Taytay and Teresa). The City of Manila
Manila
from the old Province of Manila
Manila
was treated as a separate entity. The seat of the provincial government was Pasig. In year 1939, Quezon

and parts of Marikina

The guerrilla forces also aided Filipino soldiers in the Philippine Commonwealth Army
