Almeida, João de

João de Almeida (1873-1953) was a Portuguese military officer who held the João_de_Almeidafinal rank of General. In 1901 he wrote his undergraduate thesis on the subject of Atlantis, which he published[1474] in 1931 as O Espírito da Raça Portuguesa na sua Expansão Além-Mar(a), where he identified the Atlantic archipelagos of the Azores, Madeiras and Canaries as the remnants of Atlantis. He included two hypothetical maps showing Atlantis as a very large* landmass extending westward from mainland of Europe and North Africa* and incorporating those three archipelagos as well as the British Isles.

He returned to the subject of Atlantis again in 1950[1475] with a supplement in 1951[1476].
