Sailing in haste from Lisbon, the Sao Jose was the Almiranta of a fleet on a King's mission. It was transporting royal treasure to Goa, the capital of Portugal's overseas empire. Traveling with the fleet was Francisco da Gama, the great grandson of legendary Portuguese explorer Vasco da Gama, en route to Goa, India, to reign as Viceroy. Attacked at sea by English and Dutch ships, they battled heroically for several days, but in the end, the Sao Jose and da Gama's royal treasure were lost off the Mozambique coast.
