My point is two-fold: that a 50 or 100 year old claim is relatively short, and that your example of Spain on this point is comedic.

That long-gone dynasty didn't die until 1913, and Taiwan was still part of the Qing dynasty in 1895. The PRC's claims over Taiwan date from 1949 - that's just over 50 years since Japan took over the...
