portuguese in malacca

by Asiamack February. 25, 2009 825 views

are these names familiar to Portugal and Portuguese?
*diego lopez de sequiera
*alfonso d'albuquerque
*ship flor d'lamar
*a famosa fortress

Portuguese first arrived on the shore of Malacca (now a state in Malaysia) in 1509 as traders looking for exotic spices in the Malay Archipelago. Diego Lopez de Sequiera led the fleet.

In 1511, Alfonso D'Albuquerque waged a war on Malacca and became a conqueror for a period lasting over 130 years.

Many remnants of the era are still standing and very well preserved by the present Malacca government. There are also descendants of Portuguese currently living harmoniously with the Malays and other locals in Malacca.

Did this short and brief research for our PB friend, cabecilha. however, this post is also for all history lovers and PB friends.

please enlarge to read the brief notes
