‘Chronicle of the Viceroy Dom João de Castro’
Fernando de Castro
Date: After 1594
Original Language: Portuguese
There is only one known extant manuscript of this chronicle, comprising 195 folios. It was evidently written after 1594, since it mentions problems in Angola and the fortress of Tangier that occurred in 1593. It was referred to by some scholars around the time it was written, but it was not published until 1995, after being rediscovered by Luís de Albuquerque at the end of the 1970s.
