Vasco da Gama has been to India three times.
The first time – he made his epoch-making discovery of the way to India by water, returned with a valuable load, which indescribably increased the economic situation of Portugal in Europe.
The second – during the punitive expedition of the Portuguese against the ruler of Calicut. By brutal measures that struck even his companions, he crushed the resistance.
The third is to accept the position of Viceroy of India, restore order in the colonies and increase revenues. Not having time to begin duties, an elderly traveler died of malaria.
