Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. lvaro Caminha was appointed by King John II of Portugal in 1492 Captain-major (governor) - apparently the second - of S o Tom and Pr ncipe which had been discovered 22 years earlier. He was a knight of the king's household and was told to settle and "Christianize" the then deserted island with his family and friars, and for that purpose was apparently given the children of Spanish Jewish refugees from Granada, which had not been able to pay the tax requested by the king, and who were married to Black people from the Congo.show more
