This is the Portuguese explorer and Military whose army was defeated by Somalis.



"What they(Ajuran Kingdom) are remembered for, however, is for being one of the few states strong enough to hold of the Europeans. The Portuguese commander Tristão da Cunha had raided his way down the coast of Africa, but the Ajuran-controlled city state of Moghadishu held him at bay. Moghadishu was culturally the centre of the empire, a powerful city-state in its own right, and its currency was the de facto trading scrip of the empire with foreign powers. Da Cunha did not even attempt an attack, while his countryman João de Sepúlveda would try to do so unsuccessfully. Eventually in the 1580s the Ajurans allied with the Ottoman Empire, and wound up warring with the Portuguese for control of the Indian Ocean.Over the next two hundred years the conflict would continue, with cities trading hands throughout the conflict."
