Prince Henry the Nav­i­ga­tor was fas­ci­nat­ed with Africa, which his fleet ex­plored; most in­trigued by the Chris­tian legend of Prester John, whose lost kingdom he hoped to find. Under his di­rec­tion, a new ship was de­vel­ope­d, the caravel, which could sail further and faster than the con­tem­po­rary ships of the Mediter­ranean.
