    I'm learning Portuguese Language. Examining their history I must say they were the most badass people of medieval era. If I'm not mistaken they held a fort in India with 40 men in the last against the Ottoman.
    Interesting their history I must say.

      Yes, that battle you talked about is called "Siege of Diu", and it is indeed epic. Search for the "battle of Diu", the naval battle that gave Portuguese Dominance over the Indian Ocean, it was epic aswell. (To clarify, both battles happened in the same place but with years apart, and one was a naval battle and the other a siege)

    Nice video, but just one clarification. Portugal was never made a province of Spain. The terms in 1580 allowed the empires to be managed separatily. Administrators of the Portuguese empire were Portuguese. of course, Portugal lost many elements of sovereignity, but not all, not by a long shot. Felipe I was a fair king, but his descendants started tearing the arrangement of 1580.

      We are friends and allies of Spain but we don't want to merge with Spain, after 900 years that should be clear by now. And we got rid of our kings 100 years ago, we're quite happy being a republic.

      @zzebowa What peace? Have you fallen asleep during this video? Did you missed the part where England makde a war ultimatum to Portugal because they wanted the lands between Angola and Mozambique? Furthermore, the only reason why England helped Portugal against the French and the Spaniards is because... they were at war against the French and the Spaniards.

      Paulo Guerreiro 2 years ago

      J C G I do not agree with you. The anglo-portuguese treaty or alliance is much more important that a stricktly militar alliance - it is a trade alliance and a kingdom's alliance. And it has been good for both parts: the portuguese and the english. Nowadays it has helped to boost the portuguese economy. In the past it helped Portugal to survive as a nation and as an empire. The portuguese empire would surely last for quite shortlier if there was not the anglo-portuguese alliance. Remember the threats which could have resulted in the loss of portuguese independence: 1385 at Aljubarrota against the castilians 1639 at Montes Claros against the spaniards, over the years in the 17th century, against the dutch at Guararapes and at Luanda, the peninsular war (1807-1812) against the french and on November the 25th of 1975 against the russian communists. All the above threats were put off, thanks to this alliance (the last stated threat was also venquished under the protection of NATO and Portugal's american allies).

      @k a r l tu num dos teus primeiros comentarios disseste sim que o portugues vinha do leones,foi isso que me fez responder.mas se o leones influenciou o portugues,tambem o leones foi influenciado pelo portugues , pois ambas as linguas existiam nas suas regioes antes do movimento da reconquista,elas nao nasceram com a reconquista, pois ja eram faladas nas regiões que se encontravam sob domínio muçulmano, nunca houve uma substituição cultural, linguística ou mesmo uma mudança religiosa completa completa, foram essencialmente movimentos militares e fa elite governante, as populacoes eram as mesmas,seja sob domínio muçulmano ou cristao, e logico que foram sendo inseridos novos vocábulo e topónimos,que na sua maioria ficaram nas respetivas linguas ate hoje....a influencia entre as diferentes linguas e dialetos da península nao foram de sentido único, ambas se influenciaram mutuamente,principalmente em regiões raianas... a questão dos antepassados comuns também e discutível,pois estudos genéticos recentes apontam para uma predominância de 60% de genes nativos nas populações atuais da península,ou seja, cada região tem maioritariamente as bases genéticas de seus antepassados mais distantes pre romanos, logo nao nunca houve uma substituicao das populacoes a cada invasao,mas sim uma assimilacao das populacoes ja existentes...isso foi particularmente verificavel com a invasao arabe,pois grande parte da populacao continuou crista,apesar de habitar zonas de ocupação muçulmana, eram os chamados moçárabes....apesar das grandes semelhanças que possam haver cada lingua peninsular tem raízes próprias alicerçadas em cada região e o ramo galaicoporrugues e tao antigo e único como as restantes...isso refuta a tua afirmação inicial de que foi antes espanha que deu uma lingua a portugal ,foi esta particular afirmação que me fez responder te e iniciou o nosso debate :)

    • k a r l

      @Pedro Mendonça i never said portuguese is descended from leonese, i said it was influenced by it. Nor did i ignore the fact that portuguese and galician are of similar origins, in fact i said -at it’s core both languages are the same but the ppl founding the original portugal were of leonese and asturian background (the same kind of peoples who went on to found spain with castille and aragon). Also from it’s birth in 868 to 1143 it was under the predominance of the kingdom of leon which governed it as a regular county & almost certainly made leonese it’s official language until portugal was made a kingdom. From 900 onward as Vimara Peres conquered more and more land from the moors, he would drive them from the cities of portus cale & braga and bring refugees from galicia and the surrounding portuguese uplands. So only then does anything similar to early portuguese start to become a main source of language in the county: which evolved into it’s own language which became independent of the galician branch in the coming centuries. Maybz in a different reality, Iberia wouldn’t only consist of spain or portugal but many other regions based on their individual native language.

      @k a r l era isso que te dizia,espanha e um conceito relativamente moderno... a lingua a que chamam espanhol e na realidade castelhano :) mas nao podes discutir a formação e origem da língua portuguesa ignorando o facto do galego e português serem basicamente a mesma lingua..ou nao sabias? ambas descendem do galaicoportugues que por sua vez descende do latin, a lingua galaico portuguesa e assim como o leones, castelhano,etc uma evolução do latin comum que se foi "emaranhando " nas linguas nativas ibericas e mais tarde foi adquirindo fonética e vocábulo dos vários povos que passaram por cada região, desde os suevos,visigodos,arabes berberes etc..por esse motivo temos na península um grupo de linguas semelhantes, mas com evolução distintas...com a exepcao dos bascos..o português nao descende do leones estas errado nisso, o portugues e o galego tem uma raiz comum,o galaico portugues e um ramo independente derivado do latin...assim como catalão,leones, castelhano,etc...deves rever tuas fontes pois estas errado, o portugues nao vem do castelhano e muito menos do leones, vem do galaicoportugues,...eu estudei latin,lingua portuguesa e linguística, assim como estudamos a formação da nossa própria lingua :) mas fora esse erro, vejo que tens um conhecimento aceitável da história da península.. fico contente por isso..qual tua nacionalidade?

    Flores, from Portuguese which means "flower" is an island in the administrative area of ​​the Province of East Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia. The name Flores comes from the Portuguese language "cabo de flores" which means "Cape of flowers". The name was originally given by S.M. Cabot to refer to the eastern region of the island of Flores. Finally used officially since 1636 by the Governor of the Dutch East Indies Hendrik Brouwer. A quite in-depth study by Orinbao (1969) revealed that the real name of the island of Flores was Nusa Nipa (snake island) which, from an anthropological perspective, was more useful because it contained various philosophical, cultural, and ritual traditions of the Flores people.

There is something about the Portuguese attitude and outlook on life that is massively appealing to me. Try to go there as often as I can and would move there in a heartbeat if I could. As many posters have already said if you haven't been there just go and see this incredible place. Believe me you won't regret it.

      Eles nunca foram subornados. Aliás já tinham a ideia na cabeça antes de irem terem com os Romanos e o pior é que eles nem eram Lusitanos, não percebo como pôde confiar neles. Quanto ao que fizeram aos traídores também tenho as minhas dúvidas mas por não me recordar bem dessa parte não desminto. Sei apenas que os romanos não eram propriamente como os descreve. Durante o tempo de Viriato e antes, foram registadas bastantes ações desonrosas por parte deles, umas que até considero traição.

      @Kali Yuga You are a fool. Portugal was the main maritime power in the world at that time. Its navy was the biggest in the world during the reign of King Manuel, with the biggest ships and it defeated the Spanish in a decisive confrontation as well during the reign of John II. People don't really have a grasp of just how powerful Portugal's navy was at the turn of the 16th century. Spain only reached its peak 100 years later.

    alguns dos momentos historicos de portugal, principalmente os belicos dariam excelentes filmes! D afonso henriques conquistou o castelo de santarem durante a noite com meia duzia de soldados subiu as muralhas pela calada, derrotou os guardas e abriu os portoes da cidade para que as tropas lusas pudessem entrar. Durante a batalha dos atoleiros, o exercito portugues com menos que metade que o exercito espanhol, atraves de inumeras armadilhas e uso do arco longo ingles conseguiu que as linhas espanholas ficassem de tal forma desordenadas que os espanhois fugiram ao pensar que o rei tinha morrido depois de verem o estandarte castelhano cair . No periodo das descobertas os portugueses lutaram contra os otomanos que dominavam o oceano indico e destruiram por completo a marinha turca de tal forma que este perderam por completo o controlo das rotas maritimas para a india. Penso que se hollywood fosse num pais lusofono teriamos uma serie de filmes epicos bem interessantes.

      Actually Moroccans were never invincible, as the easiness in which they were conquered by French forces in 1844 and in 1911.

    I heard that the treaty of Windsor came about when English crusaders stopped off to pick up some lemons and joined in fighting the hated Muslims.
    They set fire to Faro and got thanked for it. BFFEs!
    Also that Wellington was very popular for bringing his own food + more,
    and he got the Portuguese to go along with his scorched earth plan+ to stuff Napoleon.
    & it worked.
    But my favourite (apocryphal?) story is about Salazar`s last years; when he thought he was still running the show, (from his sick-bed) No one told him, but all his declarations, decrees and documents etc were going in the bin.

      Templars were taken by King Denis of Portugal and changed their name into Order of Christ. Prince Henry the Navigator was the leader of the Order of Christ, hence, the portuguese Kingdom was in fact a Templar Kingdom in secret! A lot of secrets about foreign lands, maps, routes, etc that once were in Jerusalem were brought to Portugal.

I've done a DNA test with a company called 23andMe which shows that I am 78% Iberian and only 0.8% North African. Another company called Ancestry DNA gave me 85% Iberian and 0% North African.

    Portugal wasn't entirely neutral during WW2. There was a great tension between Portugal and Spain at the time, so England requested Portugal to remain neutral to prevent Spain from joining Germany just to have an excuse to start a war with Portugal. When Spain joined the allies, then it became safe for Portugal to join them too. And during the time Portugal was neutral, it was "secretly" receiving Jewish refugees from invaded EU countries.
