Portugal was the first European nation to trade in Africa. However, their initial goal was not to trade in Africa. Their goal was to sail around it to reach Asia. Sailing around Africa would help them to bypass the Muslim merchants that dominated the land area between Europe and Asia. When the Portuguese began sailing around Africa to reach Asia, they established trading settlements along the west coast of Africa.

Viriato - Viriatus (died 138 BC) was the most important leader of the Lusitanian people that resisted Roman expansion where the Roman province of Lusitania would be established (in the areas comprising most of Portugal and Galicia). Viriatus led the Lusitanians to several victories over the Romans between 147 BC and 139 BC before he was betrayed to the Romans and killed. Of him, Theodor Mommsen said "It seemed as if, in that thoroughly prosaic age, one of the Homeric heroes had reappeared."
