Thanks, happy boy. You sure shot down my theory. No way that map could possibly be showing Mahone Bay, location of the Grail Star treasure, now that you have explained how impossible that is, using cold hard facts and logic.
Now here's another cool map image, by Casper Vopel, 1545.
It appears to show the King of Portugal in the late 1400s, Joao 2. Though the map was made later than that, it may have used the same king depiction as when the land was claimed. The later kings didn't look like that. On the other map, you saw that Nova Scotia was called Terra del Rey de Portugal, Land of the King of Portugal, and on this one we see him actually depicted. That is clearly not Newfoundland/Labrador. Though it does say "Laborador", in those days that referred to the whole East coast of Canada and even down through the New England area. Later it was contracted to its present size. You can easily identify the St. Lawrence River near the "Arctic Circle". The river right in front of the king would be the La Have River, the largest river in Nova Scotia and just below Mahone Bay. They don't seem to have depicted Nova Scotia as an identifiable peninsula, but blended it in with the general coastline. Corte Realis would likely have been Newfoundland. Newfoundland was also known as "Tierra dos Bacallaos", but certainly not Terra Del Rey de Portugal. I have just trumped all map experts of the world by correctly identifying Terra Del Rey de Portugal.
Two other Portuguese, Alvarex Fagundes and Estevan Gomez (the latter serving Spain) navigated, respectively, the Gulf of St. Lawrence and the Bay of Fundy before 1525, more than a decade ahead of the well-documented voyages of Jaques Cartier. In recognition of the contribution made by the Corte brothers, the King of Portugal granted to their descendants "Real and actual possession of the Mainland and Islands" discovered by Gaspar Corte Real during the expeditions which were financed and carried out by this Azores family at tremendous material and physical cost. Fagundes, in 1520, applied for and received a nominal royal grant of the lands he might discover "within the Portuguese sphere of influence". Some of the names he gave to points he discovered in the western part of Newfoundland were later changed to English and French nomenclature.
It has been asserted by some historians that the Portuguese were the first to exploit the fishing found on the Grand Banks, late in the 15th century. In support of this theory there is documentation of special tithes levied on catches of cod by King Manuel of Portugal as early as 1506. For a century or more after its recorded discovery, Newfoundland became known to Western Europe as "Tierra dos Bacallaos" (Portuguese for codfish). It is identified in this manner on a map published in 1569 by the celebrated Dutchman Gerardus Mercator, who marked Labrador (the Portuguese word for farmer) as "Terra Corte Realis". http://www.wordplay.com/tourism/portuges.html
