    4. He funded voyages into the new world

    Explanation:

    A nobleman of English, French, and Spanish family, Prince Henry earned his fame by sponsoring many trips of exploration onward the western coast of Africa. Many people think that great navigator Henry prince was an extraordinary navigator but this is not a truth. He even did not set sail on journeys for discovery.

    Prince Henry had many causes for killing his campaigns. He expected to find rumored Christian collaborators, add to geographic understanding, and possibly find a sea map to the East. But he also expected to get gold. For hundreds, of gold objects from sub-Saharan Africa had gained their route to Europe. Some Portuguese even considered that the objects came from a "River of Gold." If only this gold stock could be located, Henry's costly journeys could start to pay for themselves and possibly even add Portugal's economy.
