Have you ever wondered what country had the first truly global empire? Then pay attention...
Folks used to say that the “Sun never sets on the British Empire” as a means of declaring Britain’s greatness. But it was the Portuguese who forged the first truly global empire. The major dominions of the Portuguese wrapped around the globe in a straight line, from Brazil to Angola, from Mozambique to India, and all the way to Macau. With its dominion under multiple time zones, the Sun, in fact, never did set on the Portuguese Empire.
Here in this audiobook, we follow the evolution of Portugal from a small, relatively obscure country in Europe to a global empire of great wealth and power. You will learn of Portugal’s early days of conquest and its struggle against the Islamic forces of North Africa. This audiobook then documents the steady navigation of Portuguese mariners around the African continent.
The feats of Portuguese explorers, such as Bartolomeu Dias and Vasco da Gama, are covered in great depth. Also addressed is Portugal’s governance of its empire. The Portuguese attempted to solidify their gains through colonial governors, such as Francisco de Almeida and Afonso de Albuquerque. The lives and struggles of these men will be followed in great detail. Pay attention if you would like to learn more!
Here in this audiobook, you will learn:
- The centuries-long Reconquista waged between the Christians and Muslims
- The various wars of conquest
- How the Portuguese navigated around Africa
- Portuguese relations with India
- The establishment of colonies all over the world
- And much more!
