Prince Henry the navigator
Transcript of Prince Henry the navigator
Grade: 9E Early Life Henry was born in 1394 in Porto,
He was the third son born to Philippa
of Lancaster, the sister of King Henry IV
of England. Henry was 21 when he, his father and brothers
conquered northern Morocco,
that had been for a long time the base for Barbary pirates
that assaulted the Portuguese coast,
by capturing their inhabitants to be sold in the African slave market.
This attack was successful, as it inspired Henry to explore down the coast of Africa
Henry's Incomes and Fundings First of all Henry got appointment as the governor of the Portuguese successor to the Knights Templar. Henry would hold this position for the remainder of his life, and the order was an important source of funds for Henry's ambitious plans, especially his persistent attempts to conquer the Canary Islands, which the Portuguese had claimed to have discovered before the year 1346.
Henry also had other resources. When John I died, Henry's eldest brother, Edward became head of the castles council, and granted Henry a "Royal Flush" of all profits from trading within the areas he discovered as well as the sole right to authorize expeditions beyond certain areas like Cape Bojador for example. THE MONUMENT OF DISCOVERIES It is a monument that celebrates the Portuguese who took part in the Age of Discovery, or the Age of Exploration, of the 15th and 16th centuries. It is located on the estuary of the Tagus river in Lisbon, Portugal, where ships departed to their often unknown destinations. Awkward Facts About Henry It is said that he actually he did not set sail on any of his explorations. But infact planned the journey only.
It is also believed that he is the founder of many learnings or stratigeis that are used in the naval world now a days. Although he was an explorer and not a scribes person or techer.
