Pedro ?lvares Cabral

First European Explorer of Brazil

Spotlight on Explorers and Colonization

Pedro ?lvares Cabral sailed around the world for Portugal in the early sixteenth century. His efforts led to a treaty opening the spice trade with India, but also years of war between his men and the kingdom of Calicut. Along the way he also discovered Brazil, perhaps by accident, opening the door for centuries of Portuguese colonization there. This biography dives into Cabral?s background, his exploration assignments, and the impact?both positive and negative?of his voyages to India and Brazil.
