=== കൊച്ചിയിലെ ഒന്നാം യുദ്ധം (1503) ===
=== First siege of Cochin (1503) ===
 
The city of [[Cochin]] (''Cochim'', Kochi) was a growing commercial town perched on the edge of the [[Vembanad]] lagoon. The ruling Hindu prince, Unni Goda Varda, the [[Kingdom of Cochin|Trimumpara Raja of Cochin]], was not secure in his own position. Formally, he was a minor prince, subsidiary to senior family members across the lagoon at [[Edapalli]] (''Repelim''), the official overlords of the lagoon. Indeed, it is quite probable Trimumpara was in the midst of a family quarrel and originally sought out the Portuguese alliance to strengthen his own position against his relatives.<ref>The status of the Trimumpara Raja remains a little unclear. According to Dames (1918: p.&nbsp;86n), the formal ruler of Cochin was the king of [[Edapalli]], across the lagoon on the mainland, that the Cochinese peninsula (with capital at [[Perumpadappu (Malappuram district)|Perumpadappu]]) had at some point been detached as an appanage for a son, who, in turn, had detached the northern tip, [[Cochin]] city proper, for another son. These [[appanage]]s were not supposed to be permanent fiefs, but rather to serve as temporary 'training' grounds for princely heirs before they moved up in succession order. In other words, the ruler of Cochin was the second heir of Edapalli. Upon the death of the ruler of Edapalli, the first heir was supposed to leave the peninsula and take up his duties in Edapalli, and the second heir move from Cochin to Perumpadappu, and assign Cochin to his own successor (the new second heir). It seems the Portuguese arrived at a time when the princely heirs were somewhat at odds with each other (Cochin's rising prosperity possibly encouraged its prince's assertiveness). Nonetheless, it is only afterwards, under Portuguese protection, that the ruler of Cochin finally became a proper king (i.e. the Edapalli throne moved to Cochin).</ref>
