General information

 

Portugal as an independent kingdom on the world maps appeared in 1143, but in the middle of the millennium the country had become one of the world leaders in the international political, economic and military areas. Thanks to the development of maritime, Portugal became a strong naval force and actively colonized the land in all parts of the world.
