Seville

 km W by S of the island of Ushant in Brittany on route from Seville, Spain to Troon, Scotland. The ship was owned by John Cory & Sons of Cardiff. Etymology There is the belief that the name is derived from the Aymara (Aymara language) ''kota kahuana'', meaning "view of the lake." Nevertheless, the social scientist Mario Montaño Aragón, found in the "archives of Indias" in Sevilla (Seville), Spain, a completely different history: "Kotakawana" is the god of the fertility in the ancient Andean mythology, the equivalent to the classical Greek goddess Aphrodite or the Roman Venus (Venus (mythology)). This god is androgyne and lives in the Titicaca, and his court consists of criters (male and female) that are represented in the colonial sculptures as in the Catholic churches they were called "Umantuus", known as mermaids in Western culture. The earliest accounts provide little detail. In one account the Moorish forces are led by five Kings (''Life of St. Theotonius''), while in another, the Muslim forces are under the command of one King, Ismar (''Chronciles''). In the more detailed ''Chronicle of the Goths'', Ismar waited until Henriques penetrated into Moslem territory, then systematically sent his troops from Seville, Badajoz, Elvas (Elvas Municipality), Évora and Beja (Beja Municipality) against the Portuguese count. Further, the Portuguese forces were surrounded on the hilltop where they encamped, Ismar hosted knights, who were executed later by Henriques, and that the Moorish king escaped in defeat. Arab and Spanish accounts do not clarify the circumstances, and confuse the issue, identifying the Ismar as, alternatively, Ismar Abuzicri or Ismar and Abuzicri, with later historians identifying Abu Zakariya, the governor of Santarém as the protagonist. It is also likely that the numbers were inflated by the chroniclers from a large-scale raid to grand assault by Muslim forces. Further, the defeat of Moorish forces is disproved the following year, when Ismar returned to attack Leiria with troops from Santarém, Évora and Badajoz. * WikiPedia:Seville commons:Sevilla
