Hampi’s history starts with a popular folklore.
Two local chieftains, Hakka and Bukka, report to their guru an unusual sight they saw during a hunting expedition. A hare chased by their hound turns courageous & start chasing back the hound.
Vidyaranya, the guru, tells them that the place is very special and asks them to establish their local capital at this place. Thus, the seed of an Empire was sown.
Over the next 200 plus years (1336 AD 1565 AD) four dynasties ruled Vijayanagar.
The Vijayanagar Empire was established by Harihar and Bukka in 1336 AD. When they set up this principality, Muhammad bin Tughlaq was the Sultan in Delhi.
The Vijayanagar period is divided into four different dynasties- Sangama, Saluva, Tuluva and Aravidu.

In1555, Portuguese were at their peak
>Destroyed Zamorins of Calicut
>Captured Daman & Bombay. Made Goa headquarters
>Destroyed the ancient Kapaleeswarar Temple to build a Church over it
Next target was the super profitable port of Mangalore
Their only bad luck, just 14 kilometers south of Mangalore was the small settlement of Ullal - ruled then by a feisty 30 year old woman - Abbakka Chowta.
Initially, they took her lightly and sent a few boats/soldiers to capture & bring her back to Goa
>Boats never came back
Shocked/enraged, they sent a huge fleet of ships this time, under Admiral Dom Álvaro da Silveira
>Admiral soon returned, badly injured and empty handed
