Here in my coutry, they had to manage a country fifteen times larger than they "metropolis" home City (in the begin of their "discovery"). Even If historically prevails the winner version, they thrived many dangers nearly trading their lives for the profitable adventure of navigation, colonization and many clashes with foreign powers.

    We have a story/legend from this siege. It was said that when the part of the wall fell, 5 men jumped to fill the gap and held the line against 300-400 ottoman soldiers. The narrow passage was enough for them to hold the line while being wounded, this ended up giving the rest of the men a morale boost to keep fighting. Another story tells of 2 other artillery soldiers who held part of the wall alone with their spears killing several ottoman soldiers. Fun legends we managed to pull from the writtings of that time.

      Btw Portugal didn’t fight the ottomans behind a wall, Portugal fight with 17 warships in Diu against 200 ottoman ships, and Portugal won, Portugal had the most advanced warships back then. This video is not accurate, Portugal only went to war in Diu to fight the Sultan of Egypt, Indians and ottomans cos the vice king of Portugal wanted to revenge the death of his son who died 1 year earlier on the battle of Chaul. This battle wouldn’t happen otherwise cos they had orders from the Portuguese king to attack the red sea instead.

    *Fun fact:* The Ottoman’s inability to consistently maintain a large fleet of galleons in the Indian Ocean meant that Admiral Sefer Reis would often counter the larger Portuguese galleons by timing his rowed galley attacks against them so that they would be forced to sail against the wind. Thus separating one galleon from the rest of the fleet and defeating them in detail. Often his strategy would prove incredibly effective due to his ability to hug the coastline and evade the open sea.

      In the 1500's, Portugal had the most advanced navy in the world. In the battle of Diu in 1509, Portugal won with 18 ships against over 200 ships on the ottoman side. They were pretty much unchallenged until the king of Portugal died with no heir, making the King of Spain that was half Portuguese the king of Portugal and begining the Iberian Union. This was when Portugal started to weaken as Spain's enemies were now Portugal's enemies, and Spain didnt help defend portuguese territories so the dutch stole most of the spice trade in the indian ocean, shifting the global superpower from the portuguese to the dutch.

      @P S Thanks for your answer. Since the Vikings never wrote down their adventures, I get it from the Portuguese. I find it strange and a pity that people don't know where the American city Albuquerque got its name from. He is after all the greatest sea captain that has ever sailed the sea. Did I tell you that I found Vasco da Gama's grave in an old Portuguese church in Cochin? Well, they took his remains back to Lisbon after a couple of years and gave him a suitable burial place there, but originally, when Vasco died of cholera in Cochin, they buried him there. These men are true heroes and great examples of what men can do when they have the right spirit for adventures. Go out and find the world and put it on a map. It's a great achievement for all mankind. The Portuguese didn't fear their foes. The letter the Portuguese captain sent the Turkish eunuch in Goa is an insult that echoes down the history. I can only imagine the impotent rage of the eunuch. The Portuguese history is rich and something to be proud of and even if time changes, I like to think that the spirit of these men is still alive. It's the Viking spirit of men who never see the limits, who cross the borders, may it be to sail down the Russian rivers to Constantinople, to sail around Cape Horn in icy winds or to travel in a rocket to the moon. They have all a Viking inside fighting to get out. Cheers, my Portuguese brother.

      @Jan T. Carlsson i admite your passion for our History. A bit of trivia:
      Out navy, the worlds oldest existing navy is 705 yo.
      The word "commando" usually used to name special unit troops comes from the Portuguese self commanded exploratory navy units called "comandos" . They where named like that because with the lack of modern communication systems they were given autonomy from (non existing) central HQ commands to make their own strategical decisions on the ground wherever those Portuguese troops were sent.

      I admire them too. Years ago as a loudmouth no back-down youngster. I once helped a Portuguese guy get his old jalopy going after he stopped for me hiking on the road. We pulled away in his VW beetle and it stalled and wouldn't start. My oldman was a avid fan of VW Beetles and we owned six through the years. He was a part-time mechanic and taught me well. I just set the points and we were off. About 4 months later I was in a town away from home and picked up shit with 2 bullies but I pounded them both. Walking back to my friends house I saw them in 2 cars in a group of 8 getting out behind me and charging I laid out the first but the 2nd and 3rd bashed me too much and before the others got too close I gapped it across traffic with all these punks chasing me. Then I saw my Portuguese buddy and a friend driving by in the opposite direction with his eyes wide open looking at me. I couldnt stop because the ones chasing me were just like 7-8 m away. But my buddy turned the vw around and they came by shouting at me to get in. I jumped in and we got away but my buddy decided to turn back. As they were getting back in their cars we stopped by them, My buddy said wait here but I didnt. I got out with them and the 3 of us Pounded the CRAP out of 7 of them. 1 managed to get away with my buddy hot on his tail but he still got away. They helped me because I fixed his car with a screwdriver. We are still friends and even the guy who got away, we became friends later. He ended up marrying my sisters friend. A cute chick which I had an interest in but she had none for me. Good because I married a beautiful girl 4 years later with whom I have 4 children. She and I have till today not once argued about anything. I met her at another Portuguese friend of mine's house. She was his chick's best friend. I became an admirer of the Portuguese because many of them are upright no nonsense helpful friendly true friends and I love their history. I just love their amazing alone against the world history.

      You quite right, in some ways.
      Major East Asian economies (China, S. Korea, Japan) are leading the growth (economically, technologically, socially speakin) far more better than say, their West Europe counterparts recently.
      Even some nations in Southeast Asia (e.g. Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand) are part of the asia pacific region that have been projected to have positive growth for the mid term.
      In a way too, it is Karma for West Europe. They (i.e. British, Portugal, France Spain) wreaked havoc in Asia from 1500 to 1950.
      Pre 1500, the global maritime trade involving previous china dynasty, south asia, east asia, southeast asia, the arabian peninsular were far far more peaceful.

    Great video guys! Thank you so much for this! Also may I suggest a video into the the Portuguese legendary figure and national hero Nuno Álvares Pereira known as the Saint Constable! With your expertise in making videos about interesting historical figures, you have so much good material in his history - By 13 years old was already scounting for castillian troops for the army, he went and fought against his elder brother in the battle of Aljubarrota, participated in the battle of Ceuta the beginning of the Portuguese Empire, after that retired to monastic life and gave away all his posessions to his comrades in arms wich was nearly half the country! Without this great general there would be no independent Portugal. Thank you!

      @爱国人 Yes. And every country that becomes socialist turns into a cesspool of crime, corruption, and a distancing from God which allows for perversion disrespect abuse, blatant daylight robbery and a breakdown of society and law and order. European countries usually just take longer to turn to shit. But they will until communism or as they prefer to say: socialism, is thrown out of government. Just look at South America. Or the United States in the next few years. Or even now in many cities in the U.S. Look it up and see for yourself. That is Socialism. It's Communism with a nice name. A lighter version of Communism. But its communism and it always gets much worse.

    Great video. This is an area of history I know little about. I generally knew that the Portuguese had altered the trade routes of Asia away from the Arab world, and that it was a major reason for the long decline of the Ottoman Empire. This also caused a major shift in wealth to Europe. However, I have no idea of the people involved, the battles, and the process by which it was done.
    It is fascinating. I look forward to more.

    The Portuguese attack of Diu in 1509 wasnt planned.
    That attack occurred when the joint Mamluk-Gujarat navy attack Cochin in 1508 and killed Lourenço de Almeida, the son of Francisco de Almeida the 1st Viceroy of India.
    For 3 days he mourned the death of his son, when he approach his men he said:
    "He who ate the chick must also eat the rooster or pay for it".
    Refusing to accept the orders of his King by giving the position of Viceroy to Afonso de Albuquerque, due to Francisco's hate for him as Afonso was responsible to intercept any Muslim fleet coming out of the Red Sea and die to the fact that Francisco wanted to personally destroy the Mamluk fleet.
    Before moving his navy to Diu he wrote a letter to the captain of Diu, Malik Ayyaz:
    "I the Viceroy say to you, honored Meliqueaz captain of Diu, that I go with my knights to this city of yours, to take the people who were welcomed there, who in Chaul fought my people and killed a man who was called my son, and I come with hope in God of Heaven to take revenge on them and on those who assist them, and if I don't find them I will take your city, to pay for everything, and you, for the help you have done at Chaul. This I tell you, so that you are well aware that I go, as I am now on this island of Bombay, as he will tell you the one who carries this letter."
    P. S. : Don't underestimate the love of a father for his son.

      @Ustanik Francisco de Almeida died in 1509 or 1510 so no...
      The Battle of Diu 1509 was a Portuguese counterattack of the Mamluk-Gujarat attack in Chaul in 1508.
      The 2nd siege of Diu (in 1546), Diu was in Portuguese hands since 1536, the first siege was in 1538.
      Gujarat, with Ottoman support, had an army of 10.000 soldiers vs the Portuguese 440 men, receiving reinforcements, near the end of the siege, of 3.000 soldiers including Indian (hindu) militias. As soon the fleet arrived they bombarded the enemy and they had to retreat.
      The Portuguese always had cities like Goa and Diu bcz those cities were basically islands extremely defensable by using cannons of the ships to disperse the enemy.

      @Aimal Naveed So don't take it personally and rewrite history for your own benefit. The Ottomans remained powerful for a long time but, as with everything, technological advancements changed the rules and new players entered the game. Even the colonial empires, who had first surpassed the Ottomans and others, would, themselves, lose out to new sentiments like nationalism, independence movements, global industrial warfare and be supplanted by new superpowers - the USA and the Soviet Union. Which brings us to today where only the USA is left as the sole superpower. Countries in Africa and East Asia are rising fast now so in a couple hundred years or more - who knows? There may be an entirely new world order from what we see today.

      @Aimal Naveed this reads like poor nationalist revisionism. Controlling trade from India was a huge advantage for any empire since the classical era and the Ottoman sultan would have known this - it's why he wanted to maintain strong ties with India in the first place. The problem for the Ottomans wasn't that they didn't care about India, it was that they were facing a new kind of enemy. The Ottomans were a relic from the past where having huge continuous land-based holdings was the epitome of power and (you were right about this) most of their forces were tied up on land as a result. Portugal was tiny in comparison, however, it was a forerunner of a new kind of empire - the colonial empire - which used naval advancements to emphasise control of the seas and trade routes as well as to capture and settle territory far away from home. Portugal would have never beaten the entirety of Ottoman forces on land but they never had to - being too far away and using their superior navy to shut the Ottomans and others out of lucrative trade-routes was enough. Colonial empires would eventually become global powers - culminating in the largest empire of all time - the British Empire - which, at its height, controlled over 26% of the entire world, vast amounts of its wealth and substantially surpassed the next largest empire in history - the Mongol Empire.

      Ottomans lost to portuguse beacuse portuguse were at their peak and the force that to fight them were new, junior and less professional. The main forces were fighting and defeating whole Europe and safavid.
      Also sultan himself was not interested in India. If he was he would send his professional force and Kick out the portuguese from India.
      Also, portuguese fort was well constructed and have unlimited supplies.

      Battle Alqacer Qibir 1578 was a Turkish Portuguese Rivality too.
      These time in North Africa
      The Ottomans was there with Yanissaries and Cannons.
      The Ottomans supported a Side
      And Portugues supported a Side
      Portugal lost not only Influence in Morocco, they lost their King and their Independence to Spain for 60 years.
      Ottomans where the Superior Continental Power and Portugal Maritime Power at these Time.
      Alfonso de Albuqerque's main goal was to reach Mecca through the Red Sea and exchange the Corpses of the Prophet Mohammed and Mecca for Jerusalem. In Terms of Trade, too, he had aims to bring the spice trade to Portugal via the Mediterranean Sea and North Africa. These goals could no longer be achieved after the emergence of the Ottomans as the successor to the Mameluks. The Priority of the Turks was the Land and the Security of the Red Sea & Aden. The Portuguese put their Priority on the Trading Posts and Fortresses on the High Sea.

    Vasco Da Gama, Afonso de Albuquerque and Tristão Da Cunha all tried to permanently capture Somali port cities of Adal and Ajuuraan but received so much resistance that they sailed towards India instead and knighted themselves for surviving the Somali battles. A few years later Cristóvão da Gama died protecting Abyssinia from Adal.
    Looking forward to the next video.

      @graciano neves Thanks for the source. As for Barawa even there, the Portuguese couldn't hold the city after attacking it twice in eighty years because the population was too hostile and Portuguese manpower was too stretched across the planet for a long-term war, which is why they signed peace-treaties instead. Holding medieval Somalia would have been a major strategic win because you would control the mouth to the Red Sea and the African part of the Indian Ocean plus eliminate a big threat to Christian Abyssinia, so its not like the Portuguese didn't try, its just that the Somalis had muskets, cannons, ships and walled cities too.

      @Dragon Ball Super by the way, most portuguese don't know about these wars, it was too long ago, and Africa is always seen as something that consumed money and men with no profit or positive results in the long term. Only at university level can a portuguese student learn about these wars.

      Ger Many Portugal is a NATO member, we have declared war on Iraq when USA invaded, we helped East Timor our former colony from the Indonesian invasion. I don't remember what we did during the cold war after we become a democracy, but we fought a long very expensive war against our former African colonies during our dictatorship regime, it only ended in 1974. We have done small countries to United Nations blue helmets defensive force in Central Africa.

      @Aimal Naveed the Ottoman Empire did managed to do inmense during the centuries it existed. So did the portuguese. The main amazing thing about the portuguese is how a small kingdom with very few people did managed to build an empire, going against the major powers in the world back then. One thing is that the portuguese never considered themselves as an empire, but a kingdom.
      And that is because its people were strong minded, corageous, their faith in God and seeking glory.
      The Ottoman empire knew that the small kingdom of Portugal was an expert in fighting the moors, and also knew that when the portuguese sent a 100 men to help defend Malta was going to make the conquest more dificult.
      The famous ottoman admiral Reis knew that when the portuguese arrived at the indian ocean, never has another kingdom done that, the ottoman were going to loose its market monopoly.
      About India, the portuguese had only a few men in Goa. I actually knew one of the soldiers that was a prisioner there. Portugal was fighting a war in Africa, in three fronts, it didnt had manpower nor resources to defend Goa or Diu not even Timor
