GilVicente's prominence as a playwright was a result of his association with the royal court of King John II of Portugal.
The first work of GilVicente's is believed to have been written for the birth of the future king John III in 1502.
GilVicente'strilogy called the Auto das Barcas is considered one of his finest consisting of Auto da Barca do Inferno (Auto of the Ship of Hell, 1516), Auto da Barca do Purgatório (Auto of the Ship of Purgatory, 1518), and Auto da Barco da Glória (Auto of the Ship of Glory or Heaven, 1519).
It is named GilVicente after the Portuguese playwright of the same name.
GilVicente was founded in 3 May 1924, after the creation of other clubs in Barcelos, such as Barcellos Sporting Club and União Foot-ball Club Barcelense.
GilVicente lost its place in the BWINLIGA to Os Belenenses as a result of the Mateus affair, about the Angolan national team player being used in some games, in a way that the "Blues" (Belenenses) consider illegal, because of the usage of regular justice courts, instead of sports courts.
Vicente was attached to the courts of the Portuguese kings Manuel I and John II, and he may have been identical with, or related to, an accomplished goldsmith of the same name at the court.
Vicente's lyric plays and entertainments were created (c.1500c.1536) for production at court, and they varied from slight, farcical interludes to full comedies and tragicomedies.
Some are profoundly religious, some especially satirical; Vicente was antagonistic to the corrupt clergy and pretentious parvenus at the court, and he decried the superficial glory of empire that hid the increasing poverty in Portugal.
He was probably apprenticed to Martim Vicente, a close relative and goldsmith, and it was as a goldsmith that Gil attracted the attention of Queen Leonor, who in 1495 was widowed by King John II.
Its 114 lines are in Spanish, partly in deference to Queen Maria's birthplace (she was a daughter of the Catholic Kings) and partly because Spanish was the fashionable language of the Portuguese upper classes.
Vicente's career as the unofficial court poet was launched, and for the next 34 years he entertained the courts of Manuel I and of John III with his lyrics, music, and dramas.
