POV phrase in lede[edit]

"...one of the most remarkable navigators..."
This one definitely needs fixing. I'd suggest using "notable" instead. Ruodyssey (talk) 12:00, 1 March 2010 (UTC)

translation[edit]

" Aqui chegaram os navios do esclarecido rei D.João II de Portugal - Diogo Cão, Pero Anes, Pero da Costa." (" Here arrived the ships of king John II of Portugal – Diogo Cão, Pero Anes, Pero da Costa”.


the translation is incorrect. the portuguese word "esclarecido" is missing from the english translation. the word's meaning is "enlightened" the correct translation of the inscription is: " Here arrived the ships of the enlightened King John II of Portugal – Diogo Cão, Pero Anes, Pero da Costa”


Nowadays location of the Cape Cross padrão[edit]

The article says: "the Cape Cross padrão is now at Kiel". Actually, it is in Berlin, in the Deutsches Historisches Museum. It can be seen on-line at:
