  6. ^ The traditional May 21 date is the Protestant feast day for Saint Helena (empress), and would not have been marked this day by the Portuguese, because they were members of the Catholic Church, and also because the island was discovered before the Reformation started. The discovery date is quoted as 3 May during the 16th/17th centuries, corresponding to the Catholic Feast day of the True Cross, a date that is closely linked to the name of Saint Helena.
