Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Dragutin Lerman (24 August 1863 - 12 July 1918) was a Croatian explorer. Lerman was born in Po ega, Slavonia, but he left his home very early. He was a member of the 1882 Henry Morton Stanley expedition to Congo and was one of Stanley's most trusted men. Later, he was the confidant of L opold II, King of the Belgians and the very representative of the Belgian government in the Congo. His first exploration trip lasted from 1882 to 1885, the second from 1888 to 1890, and the third between 1892 and 1894. The fourth lasted six months during 1896. During the journey through Congo in 1882, he discovered huge waterfalls on the Kouilou River, (or Kwil), and named them the Zrinski chutes to honor the national family of rulers (Nikola Zrinski and Petar Zrinski of Me imurje) from his native country.show more
