Maria Severa, who lived in Lisbon in early 19th century was the first Fadista in Portugal to be acclaimed as a Fado performer. She is sometimes accredited with not just the popularity but also the origin of Fado music. She was a prostitute that sang fado and also played the Portugese Guitar. Severa has been uplifted to mythical proportions, and there are plays, musicals written about her life; including the first sound movie in Portugal in 1931. Severa died when she was only 26.

Vasco da Gama (Sines, Portugal, 1460/9 - Cochim, Índia, 24/12/1524) - foi um navegador e explorador português. Na Era dos Descobrimentos destacou-se por ter sido o comandante dos primeiros navios a navegar da Europa para a Índia, na mais longa viagem oceânica até então realizada. A tarefa fora inicialmente atribuída por D. João II a Estevão da Gama, seu pai. Contudo, dada a morte de ambos, em julho de 1497 o comando da expedição lhe foi delegado pelo novo rei de Portugal, D. Manuel I.
