Diogo Columbus
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1480
Death: 1526

Only son born to the marriage of explorer Christopher Columbus of Italy, and wife Philipa Moniz Perestrelo of Italian and Portuguese heritage. Her father, thought to be Bartholomew Perestrelo, was captain of Porto Santo Isle. After Bartholomew's death, Philipa's mother, Isabel Moniz, gave his navigation maps and other documents to her son-in-law, Christopher Columbus - and the rest is history!

Diogo was born on Porto Santo Isle and his mother died soon thereafter. Illegitimate children were later born to Christopher Columbus, however Diogo was his only heir and was buried beside his father upon death.
