Lisbon is one of the oldest cities in the world. Julius Caesar made it a municipium called Felicitas Julia, adding to the name Olissipo. Ruled by a series of Germanic tribes from the fifth century, it was captured by the Moors in the eighth century. In 1147, the Crusaders under Afonso Henriques reconquered the city for the Christians and since then it has been a major political, economic, and cultural center of Portugal. Unlike most capital cities, Lisbon's status as the capital of Portugal has never been granted or confirmed officially – by statute or in written form. Its position as the capital has formed through constitutional convention, making its position as de facto capital a part of the Constitution of Portugal

Nzinga Mbemba (c. 1456 - 1542 or 1543), also known as King Afonso I was a ruler of the Kingdom of Kongo in the first half of the 16th century. He reigned over the Kongo Empire from 1509 to late 1542 or 1543.
After the arrival of the Portuguese, Afonso was assigned to rule Kongo's northern province of Nsundi where he was accompanied by a number of Portuguese priests. He was successful in his rule there, extending Nsundi's borders north of the Congo River. According to Afonso's account of events, his father lost interest in Christianity toward the end of his reign. Afonso, on the other hand, became a devout Christian. Intrigues at court, caused the king to doubt his son, and he was deprived of his province. Eventually Afonso regained his father's trust and was returned to the province.

The Castle of São Jorge (Portuguese: Castelo de São Jorge; Portuguese pronunciation: [k???t?lu d? s??w? ?????(?)]) is a moorish castle that occupies a commanding position overlooking the city of Lisbon, the capital of Portugal, and the broad Tagus River (Portuguese: Rio Tejo) beyond. The strongly-fortified citadel, which, in its present configuration, dates from medieval times, is located atop the highest hill in the historic center of the city. The castle is one of the main historical and touristic sites of Lisbon. Although the first fortifications on this Lisbon hilltop are known to be no older than the second century BC, archaeological research has shown that humans have occupied the site since the sixth century BC, and possibly earlier. The hill was employed in early times by indigenous Celtic tribes, and others, probably Phoenicians, Greeks, and Carthaginians, have also left their cultural footprints there. Afterwards, Roman, Suebic, Visigothic, and Moorish settlers lived where the castle now stands.
