Biography

Portuguese military man, a General, and President of Portugal for two years beginning in 1974. During his administration Portugal ended its rulership over its colonies in Africa.

A graduate of military schools and Porto University, where he majored in math, he was a fast climber through military ranks. He was stationed abroad in the colony of Macao where he headed the military there from 1949-1951. He then served on the NATO staff from 1954-1956. In 1961 he was implicated in a plot to unseat Antonio Salazar and in April that year he lost his post as undersecretary of state for the army. After he and Salazar made peace with each other, Gomes was promoted to Brigadier General and was stationed in Africa where he fought rebellions in Portuguese colonies there.

After he lost the 1976 elections, he retired from public life.

He and his wife had one son.

He died on July 31, 2001 in Lisbon, Portugal, age 87
