Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Diogo Rodrigues (- April 21, 1577, Goa) was a Portuguese explorer of the Indian Ocean, after whom the island of Rodrigues is named. In 1528 he explored the islands of Réunion, Mauritius, and Rodrigues, naming it the Mascarene or Mascarenhas Islands, after his countryman Pedro Mascarenhas, who had been there before. According to José Nicolau da Fonseca, Rodrigues was buried in Goa with his grave's inscription reading: Acqui jaz Diogo Rodrigues o do Forte, Capitão desta Fortaleza, o qual derrubou os pagodes destas terras. Falleceu á 21 de Abril de 1577 annos. In English translation this reads: "Here lies Diogo Rodrigues, (called) 'the one of the Fort', Captain of this Fortress, who destroyed the pagodas of these territories. He died on April 21, 1577.
