The background of Bartolomeu Dias
Almost nothing is known about the life of Bartoloneu Dias before 1487. Some of the information that I pulled out of his history is very known. Bartolomeu was born in 1450, in the year of (1455-1495) he had a court with the king who was named Joao II the second. Probably in his mid-to late 30's in 1486 when Joao appointed him to head an expedition in search of sea route to India.
