HISTORY
Afonso I, also called Afonso Henriques, byname Afonso the Conqueror,
Portuguese Afonso o Conquistador (born 1109/11, Guimarães, Port.—
died Dec. 6, 1185, Coimbra), the first king of Portugal (1139–85), who
conquered Santarém and Lisbon from the Muslims (1147) and secured
Portuguese independence from Leon (1139).

Henry the Navigator was born in Porto, Portugal, in 1394.
Although he was neither a sailor nor a navigator, he sponsored
a great deal of exploration along the west coast of Africa.
Under his patronage, Portuguese crews founded the country's
first colonies and visited regions previously unknown to
Europeans. Henry is regarded as an originator of the Age of
Discovery.
Henry the Navigator,
a 15th century Portuguese prince
Explorer Vasco da Gama was born in Sines, Portugal, around 1460. In 1497, he was commissioned by the Portuguese king
to find a maritime route to the East. His success in doing so proved to be one of the more instrumental moments in the
history of navigation. He subsequently made two other voyages to India, and was appointed as Portuguese viceroy in
India in 1524.
Pedro Álvares Cabral, (born 1467/68, Belmonte, Portugal—died 1520)
Pedro Álvares Cabral was a Portuguese explorer, navigator and military
commander who is best remembered today as the leader of the
expedition that first reached that lands of South America that are today
regarded as Brazil.
Fernão de Magalhães, 1480 – 27 April 1521, was a Portuguese
explorer who organised the Spanish expedition to the East Indies
from 1519 to 1522, resulting in the first circumnavigation of the
Earth, completed by Juan Sebastián Elcano.
Born into a Portuguese noble family in around 1480, Magalhães
became a skilled sailor and naval officer and was eventually
selected by King Charles I of Spain to search for a westward route
to the Maluku Islands (the "Spice Islands").
Commanding a fleet of five vessels, he headed south through the
Atlantic Ocean to Patagonia, passing through the Strait of
Magalhães into a body of water he named the "peaceful sea" (the
modern Pacific Ocean).
Magalhães did not complete the entire voyage, as he was killed
during the Battle of Mactan in the Philippines in 1521.
Fernão de Magalhães
Aristides de Sousa Mendes do Amaral e Abranches was one of
the great heroes of the Second World War.
As the Portuguese consul stationed in Bordeaux, France, he
found himself confronted in June of 1940 with the reality of
many thousands of refugees outside the Portuguese consulate
attempting to escape the horrors of the Nazi war machine.
These persons were in desperate need of visas to get out of
France, and a Portuguese visa would allow them safe passage
through Spain to Lisbon, the capital of Portugal, where they
could find liberty to travel to other parts of the globe.
In all, Sousa Mendes issued some 30,000 visas, including about
10,000 to Jews, over the period of a few days. This heroic feat
was characterized by the Holocaust historian Yehuda Bauer as
“the largest rescue action by a single individual during the
Holocaust.”

philosopher, described as one of the most significant literary

Portuguese language. He also wrote in and translated from
English and French.
Pessoa was a prolific writer, and not only under his own name,

not call them pseudonyms because he felt that did not capture

heteronyms. These imaginary figures sometimes held

Commanding a fleet of five vessels, he headed south through the Atlantic Ocean to Patagonia, passing through the Strait of Magalhães into a body of water he named the "peaceful sea" (the modern Pacific Ocean).

These persons were in desperate need of visas to get out of France, and a Portuguese visa would allow them safe passage through Spain to Lisbon, the capital of Portugal, where they could find liberty to travel to other parts of the globe. In all, Sousa Mendes issued some 30,000 visas, including about 10,000 to Jews, over the period of a few days. This heroic feat was characterized by the Holocaust historian Yehuda Bauer as “the largest rescue action by a single individual during the Holocaust.” Aristides de Sousa MendesAristides de Sousa Mendes
