He left for the Orient twice as captain of the fleets of Jorge de Melo Pereira (1507) and João Sousa Lima (1513). This nobleman was the son of Nuno Gonçalves de Leão, the Chancellor of Casa do Civel, and brother of Jorge Nunes de Leão. Unlike his brother who served the Governor, Afonso de Albuquerque, and died in battle, Henrique Nunes de Leão was involved solely in the spice trade.
