Pedro Reinel (? - c. 1542) was a Portuguese cartographer of the 16th century, author of one of the oldest signed Portuguese nautical chart (c. 1492). That is a portolan type of chart, covering western Europe and part of Africa, and already reflecting the explorations made by Diogo Cão in 1482-1485. His Atlantic Chart of c. 1504 is the earliest known nautical chart with a scale of latitudes, and the first to depict a wind rose with a clearly drawn fleur-de-lys.
