The age at whch Bartolomeu Dias [c. 1450-May 29, 1500] married is unknown. In fact, very little information is available about the famous navigator's life and times. Portuguese historians identify Dias as a member of a noble family, and an early resident of the royal household at the Royal Court in Lisbon. They also indicate that he had two sons, Simao and Antonio, both of whom used Dias de Novais as their last names. Because Dias was Catholic and of noble background, he most likely was married to the mother of his only two known children. But Portuguese historians haven't shared the dates, name, or personal background of the bride. Neither have they spoken of the date and place of the marriage. And none of this information is part of the family history that's passed down through generations of a bloodline. For Dias' direct family line ended with his great granddaughters, Dona Paula de Novais and Dona Violante de Castro, neither of whom married or left any known children. But perhaps the information is available in an archive in Portugal. Or it may be available through the records of the Catholic Church. For Dias' son Antonio Dias de Novais became a Knight of the Order of Christ, and married. Documentation still may exist for the ceremonies that would have been associated with both events.

It can't be stated definitely how old Bartolomeu Dias [c. 1450-May 29, 1500] was when he left Portugal for his expedition of 1487-1488 around the southernmost tip of Africa. For the exact information on his date and place of birth isn't known, at least outside Portugal. But the educated guess is an age in the late 30s. If the estimated year of his birth as 1450 really is correct, and depending upon his birthday, Dias was 36 or 37 years old when he set sail.

How old was Bartolomeu Dias?

The exact age of Bartolomeu Dias [c. 1450-May 29, 1500] is unknown. But Portuguese historians have estimated the famous navigator to have been born around the year 1450. And so, depending upon his birthday, Dias may have been 49-50 years old when he was on one of four ships that were lost in a storm. Ironically, the fatal storm arose off the Cape of Good Hope, which Dias had discovered earlier, on his expedition of 1487-1488 around the southern tip of Africa. No information is available as to the exact date and location of Dias' birth. But an educated guess may be birth on his saint's day. For Dias was Catholic, and St. Bartholomew's day is celebrated on August 24th. Another educated guess may be birth in Novais, a parish of Vila Nova de Famalicao, which is a municipality in the northern Portuguese district of Braga. For both of Dias' children, Simao and Antonio, had as last names Dias de Novais, which could mean the Dias family from Novais.
