Biography of Gabriel Abos (1650-1703)

Bearn, Knight of Malta and Navy sailor bold, brother of Maximiliano Abos. Both in 1698 defended the port of Nio in 1698 with four ships against the capitan-baja Squad, composed of fifty galleys, and came out winners. Maximiliano died a few days after that fight, and his brother returned to Malta with a huge booty, when he/she was captured by Tunisian pirates and sent to Constantinople. Mahomet IV tried uselessly to make you enter your service, and, as he/she could not get it, did cut the head, in 1703.
