Barbosa, Duarte


Barbosa, Duarte
(?-1521)
   Was in the service of the Portuguese government in India during 1500-1515, mostly staying at Cochin. He was proficient in Malayalam and is reported to have acted as interpreter at Albuquerque's meeting with the ruler of Cannor in 1503. Barbosa returned to Portugal in 1515, where he published his travels that carry interesting information on the Portuguese activities in India and on the situations in Indian coastal states during 1500-1515. This book is available in English translation under the title The Book of Duarte Barbosa. In a subsequent voyage undertaken in 1521, Barbosa was killed by a local chief in the Philippines.
