The region of Africa today known as the Democratic Republic of Congo (Zaire) first came to the attention of Europeans in 1482 when the Portuguese navigator Diogo Cao
explored the mouth of the Congo River.
By 1482, it was the turn of navigator Diogo Cao
to reach the mouth of the Congo River.
It is known that the methodology was not new: when Diogo Cao
set out on his first voyage (1481 or 1482), two other agents of the king were sent, but they had to return soon after because they were unable to speak Arabic.
For instance, Vasco da Gama and King Dom Manoel are arrested and sent to an insane asylum despite the King's continual protests that "all this crap belongs to me," Diogo Cao
is hired as a water inspector and ends up a drunken lout searching for nymphs in the Tagus, and Pedro Alvares Cabral's wife deserts him after becoming a prostitute to work off his debts.
