King John II (João II; 3 March 1455 – 25 October 1495), was the king of Portugal and the Algarves in 1477/1481–1495. He is known for re-establishing the power of the Portuguese throne, reinvigorating its economy, and renewing its exploration of Africa and the Orient.

Diogo Cão was a Portuguese explorer and one of the most notable navigators of the Age of Discovery, who made two voyages sailing along the west coast of Africa in the 1480s. He discovered and explored the Congo River and the coasts of the present-day Angola and Namibia.
