Portuguese voyages of discovery

Stone of Ielala
  • January: On his second voyage, which began the previous year, the Portuguese navigator Diogo Cão is the first European to reach Cabo Cross at 21 ° 46 'south latitude in what is now Namibia. On the headland he has a stone stele, a so-called padrão, erected. This point, north of Walvis Bay , is considered to be its furthest southward advance. On the same trip he discovered Cabo Frio and the Ilha dos Tigres . Diogo Cão is likely to drive the Congo to the Ielala waterfalls on the way back , as the names of Cão and two of his fellow travelers are later found there. Cão is believed to be killed on the return trip to Europe.


Auítzotl in the Codex Mendoza
  • Auítzotl succeeds his late brother Tízoc as ruler of the Aztec city Tenochtitlan . The Aztecs emerged from the reign of Tízoc weakened in foreign policy. This is shown in the fact that the heads of the neighboring states sharply reject the usual invitation to the accession ceremonies. Another sign of this is that the Aztec sources named places as war targets of the Auítzotl that had already been conquered by previous rulers, such as the Valley of Toluca . These are places that fell away from the Aztecs during the reign of Tízoc.
