Mauricio el de las islas

Johannes Mauritius
I believe this to be John Maurice, Prince of Nassau-Siegen (d. 1679)
- appointed governor of the Dutch possessions 
in Brazil in 1636 by the Dutch West India Company

[The island nation of Mauritius (below), located in the Indian 
Ocean, was named after Maurice, Prince of Orange (d. 1625)]
