roc - definition of roc in Encyclopedia (403 words)
Roc or Rukh (from Persian رخ; Rukh): a mythical white bird of enormous size and strength such that is reputed to have been able to lift and eat elephants.
The origin of the myth about the roc is unknown, and it is possible that the myth originated from an actual bird, with references to it being known from early as the 8th century from Arab authors.
The roc is hardly different from the Middle-Eastern `anqa (see phoenix); it is also identified with the Persian simurgh, the bird which figures in Firdausi's epic as the foster-father of the hero Zal, father of Rustam.
Republic of China - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (7847 words)
The ROC was founded in 1912 to replace the Qing Dynasty, ending 4,000+ years of imperial rule (various dynasties) in China and becoming the second republic to be created in East Asia (the first being the short-lived Democratic Republic of Taiwan in 1895).
The ROC as representative of China was one of the founding members of the United Nations; however, in 1971, it was replaced in the UN by the PRC.
Most states switched their recognition from the ROC to the PRC in the 1970s; currently, the ROC is officially recognized by 25 states, though it maintains unofficial relations with most major powers.
