  1. 1. Henry the Navigator<br />Tommy Beasley<br />
  2. 2. Life<br />About 1418, Prince Henry started the first school for oceanic navigation along with an astronomical observatory at Sagres, Portugal. In this school, people were trained in navigation, map-making, and science, in order to sail down the west of Africa.<br />
  3. 3. Exploration<br />He is most famous for the voyages of discovery that he organized and financed, which eventually led to the rounding of Africa and the establishment of sea routes to the Indies. <br />
  4. 4. Glory<br />His own life only sufficed for the accomplishment of a small portion of his task. The complete opening out of the African or southeast route to the Indies needed nearly forty years of somewhat intermittent labor after his death <br />
