TAO11 July 3rd? Is that the least you can do lol you are a big fool if you stop at that. Going so low to make a computer do your bidings. Lol don't forget to turn on the software every day. I thought I was discussing with someone that has brains not knowing it's with a spinless animal. Am not gonna be mad with you to automate a software to do my bidings. But once again you're a fool if you stop at just July 3rd gosh just July here? I wanna believe you mean 2023 July 3rd. A sane person doesn't go around running around with a mad man otherwise both are mad. Seeing a thousand mentions a day doesn't even affect my day to day post but gives you headache. Better start the automation now undecided

(b) Premise 2:
Obe Ewuare 1 reigned in Benin, just before the coming of the Portuguese. He reigned from 1440 to 1473 even according to Benin chronology of kings.

(b) Premise 2:
Obe Ewuare 1 reigned in Benin, just before the coming of the Portuguese. He reigned from 1440 to 1473 even according to Benin chronology of kings.

Yes, Ruy de Sequeira explored the Atlantic coast up to the coast of Benin.

However, there is zero evidence that he actually did visit Benin.

In fact, the documented account of a first visit to Beny is by de Aveiro.

Ruy de Pina’s “Chronica” contains an account of his visit as follows:

This year, 1486, the land of Beny was for the first time discovered beyond the Mine in the Rivers of the Slaver, by Joham Affonso de Aveiro who died there.

~ Ruy De Pina, “Chronica,” Chapter XXIV, Discovery of Beny.

Take heart. cheesy
