Anthroponyms seta BEJA, António Raposo de

This knight was captain of the fleet that departed to Índia in 1512. In the Orient, at Afonso de Albuquerqe´s side, he was part of the fleet that aided Goa and of the 1513 expedition to the Red Sea as well as of the conquest of Ormuz in 1515. We find evidence of his presence in the Orient until 1520, when he occupied the military magistracy of Goa.
