When did Ferdinand Magellan sail for Spain?
He sailed in the 10 of august 1994
Ferdinand Magellan sailed for Spain because the Spanish government was willing to fund him. Magellan's native Portugal believed that the best way to get to East Asia was by traveling around Africa and would not sponsor a trip westbound as he proposed. However, the Spaniards disagreed with the Portuguese government and, accordingly, funded Magellan's exploration to find a way to the Pacific around South America.
