About Pedro Álvares Cabra
Pedro Álvares Cabral (about 1467/1468/1469 – about 1520; Portuguese pronunciation: ˈpeðɾʊ ˈaɫvɐɾɨʃ kɐˈβɾaɫ (European) or ˈpedɾu ˈawvaɾis kaˈbɾaw (Brazilian)) was a Portuguese navigator and explorer. Cabral is generally regarded as the European discoverer of Brazil (22 April 1500). Cabral is thought to have been born in Belmonte, in the Beira Baixa province of Portugal. He was the third son of Fernão Cabral (c1427-c1492), the Governor of Beira and Belmonte, and Isabel de Gouveia de Queirós (c. 1433-c. 1483; descendant of the first King of Portugal, Afonso I), and married Isabel de Castro, the daughter of the distinguished Fernão de Noronha (also descendant of King Afonso I). He must have had excellent training in navigation and a large amount of experience as a seaman, for King Manuel I of Portugal considered him competent to continue the work of Vasco da Gama.
