   ENRIQUE, Magellan's Interpreter, A Cebuano?


Enrique, Magellan's slave bought in Malacca who confirmed Magellan's belief of a land further beyond Malacca. He was brought before the King of Portugal and later to Spain for Magellan's Expedition to discover the new trade route and thus discover Cebu. Upon landing in Cebu, Enrique became Magellan's interpreter to the King of Cebu, Humabon. Dr. Alejandro Roces claims that Enrique must have been a Cebuano or a Visayan in origin.
