PRINCE HENRY THE NAVIGATOR

Norman J. W. Thrower

Peer Reviewed

Abstract: At his own town on the barren promontory of Sagres near Cape Saint vincent, Prince Henry of Portugal died on November 13th, 1460. The 500th anniversary of the death of this eminent patron of navigation and initiator of geographical discovery is being commemorated this year in Portugal and Portuguese possessions. Infante Dom Henrique (Anrique) is not, however, only a national figure, but as "the Navigator" he belongs to the world.
