Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Diogo Rodrigues (- April 21, 1577, Goa) was a Portuguese explorer of the Indian Ocean, after whom the island of Rodrigues is named. In 1528 he explored the islands of R union, Mauritius, and Rodrigues, naming it the Mascarene or Mascarenhas Islands, after his countryman Pedro Mascarenhas, who had been there before. According to Jos Nicolau da Fonseca, Rodrigues was buried in Goa with his grave's inscription reading: Acqui jaz Diogo Rodrigues o do Forte, Capit o desta Fortaleza, o qual derrubou os pagodes destas terras. Falleceu 21 de Abril de 1577 annos. In English translation this reads: "Here lies Diogo Rodrigues, (called) 'the one of the Fort', Captain of this Fortress, who destroyed the pagodas of these territories. He died on April 21, 1577.show more
