Actually the Queen didn't like him very much at all. She and the King only tolerated Columbus because he was their best hope for beating Portugal to the riches of Asia in their eyes. The belief that Columbus was a favorite of the Queen is just another myth.
Columbus asked King Henry of Portugal for ships and sailors to discover the way to China and Japan. King Henry said no.. Then Columbus went to Spain and asked Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand. There was a war in Spain. "Wait until the war is over," Queen Isabella said.. Columbus had to wait many …years. The war was over, at last, in 1492. Then Queen Isabella said yes.. The city of Palos gave Columbus three ships: the Nina, the Pinta, and the Santa Maria. Queen Isabella gave Columbus money and ninety sailors.. The three little ships sailed from Palos on August 3. First they stopped at the Canary Islands for more food and water. They left the Canaries on September 6. ( Full Answer )
Christopher Columbus did not discover India. India was known centuries before his birth. I don't believe he ever got to India. He was trying to find a shorter route to the Indies when he tripped across the Americas.
They appointed him Admiral of the Sea. They also promised to makehim the governor of all the lands he claimed for Spain.
Already in the service of King John II of Portugal, Columbus in1484 proposed a new sea route to Asia. John dismissed Columbus'project following Bartholomew Diaz's discovery of a route to Indiavia the Cape of Good Hope. Funding still another search for anIndian passage seemed unnecessary.
King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella King Ferdinand II was King of Aragon. Queen Isabella I was Queen of Castile and Leon. They were co-rulers of Spain but neither was really Spanish Royalty. There were other independent kingdoms that had to be joined to Aragon, Castile, and Leon to form Spain.
Christopher Columbus was an explorer during the Age of Exploration. He had a theory in proving that the world's circumference was not as great as others thought. By proving this theory, he would said sail west instead of east to reach Asia. However, Christopher Columbus realized that this expedition… would be very expensive. He asked Queen Isabella to finance the voyage. After much persistence, the Queen accepted to pay for the exploratory expedition. ( Full Answer )
Because he persuaded her that there were great riches to be found in the "Indies". Wealth was all then
The King and Queen who sponsored Christopher Columbus were Ferdinand II of Aragon and Isabella I of Castile.
Queen Isabella chartered Columbus to find a route westward from Spain to China and the Indies.
Why King Ferdinand and queen Isabella of Spain first finance Christopher Columbus to find a new trade route to the east?
Christopher Columbus was to find new trade routs to Asia via the Atlantic Ocean, because the Moors where battling over the old land trade rout, Silk Road.
How would you describe the relation of christopher columbus to authority in his letter to the king and queen?
He was loyal to the authority of the king and queen and wanted to gain their favor. He was also somewhat boastful.
It was King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella the first of Spain. Ferdinand (1452-1516) was Ferdinand II of Aragon and Ferdinand V ofCastille following his marriage to Isabella I, queen of Castille(1451-1504).
Columbus wanted 10% of any riches produced in the land he might discover and he wanted the title of Admiral of the Ocean Sea, which would be passed to his descendants. He never got any of what he bargained for. He spent the last 10 years of his life haggling over his right to 10% of the revenues of …the New World. ( Full Answer )
Christopher was originally looking for Asia and that is where the King and Queen of Spain believed he was going to sail to. They wanted to find a new trade route to Asia and spread Christianity.
they sponsored him because he promised to bring riches to them when he returns from his exploration
King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella sponsored Columbus because Columbus told them that if they gave him the money to find another trade route to India he would spread Catholicism in India (king and queen of Spain were Catholic)
I'm assuming the question is, "what king and queen gave christopher Columbus his ships?". With that said I believe it was King Ferdinand II of Aragon and Queen Isabella I of Castile.
In the letters that Christopher Columbus wrote to the king and queen of Spain how did he treat his relationship to their authority?
Columbus didn't write letters. He kept a journal and that is how we know his thinking and route. They were the crown who gave him money, but until the day he died he felt that they had cheated him out of his reward. He had made a deal that included 10% of the gold from ANY future expeditions that he… took plus those of other people. Never got that and died an unhappy man who thought he had found India and didn't get any gold or find any. ( Full Answer )
1486, but Queen Isabella said no at the time.six years later christopher columbus asked again. this time she agreed.
Queen Isabella gave him 3 ships, enough food for 90 days, and enough men for the job. All the exports were send back to Spain, but the land that Columbus found he was able to govern. LOL
The only thing that Columbus offered to the king and queen of Spainwas a promise to bring back riches. He did not give them anytangible thing.
What best describes the relation of Christopher Columbus to authority in his letter to the king and queen?

They first sponsored his voyage because they believed it would lead to China and the wealth that would come with it. Then they sponsored his subsequent voyages to gain wealth from the Americas!
The short answer is that he wasn't. In fact the truth is that Columbus had to petition for many years to get permission to go and explore the ocean. The reason why he needed permission was that he could not raise the necessary funds all by himself, because at that time of his life he was not very… wealthy and did not even live in his own house but in a humble apartment above the cartographer's shop where he worked. So Columbus hoped that King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella would lend him enough money to fit out an expedition. In return he promised to give them seven-eighths of everything he found, keeping one eighth for himself (and the King and Queen considered this rather greedy of him, which is one of the factors that contributed to his lengthy wait). The most significant cause for the delay in obtaining permission was that the King and Queen waged a series of what they regarded as "holy wars", first against the Moors and then the Jews, and this led to that terrible period which came to be known as the Spanish Inquisition where many thousands of people were persecuted, tortured and even killed in the name of religion. All of this activity placed a considerable strain on the royal coffers, and so the King and Queen were quite reluctant to lend any money to Columbus, especially since many of their most senior advisers and scholars considered Columbus to be a crackpot adventurer (and that was when they were being nice about him!). After some fourteen long years of being constantly fobbed off by the Spanish royals, Columbus finally got fed up with waiting and decided to try his luck with the King of France. Then by one of those strange quirks of fate that make history so fascinating, Columbus happened to stop one evening at a certain monastery to beg for food and lodging for himself and his son Diego (at the time about 11 or 12 years old). They were tired and hungry, so the Prior took pity on them and invited them in to share a meal. During the meal Columbus related some of his tale to the Prior, and the Prior was fascinated by everything he heard. Unlike so many of his contemporaries, he believed that Columbus was really onto something with his theory of land far across the ocean, and when he heard that this great opportunity for discovery was about to be lost to France he begged Columbus to be patient and wait for him to return. He would, he said, ride to see the Queen and ask her to reconsider Columbus's request. The odd coincidence is that out of all the places where Columbus could have stopped to seek help, he happened to choose the one monastery in which the Prior just happened to have been the former religious confessor to the Queen. Because the Prior was a man who the Queen respected and trusted, she was willing to listen to his opinion, and this persuaded her to summon Columbus for one more meeting and a chance to put forward his case once again. This time he was heard more favorably and after a little haggling on either side over minor details it was finally agreed that Columbus would be provided with money, ships and men to help him carry out his expedition. So that is the story of how, by the strange coincidence of happening to stop in the right place at the right time and then talk to exactly the right person, Columbus was finally able to achieve his dream.

The Queen of England had nothing to do with the voyages of Columbus. He sailed for Queen Isabella of Castile and Leon, part of what in the next generation, became Spain.
He needed money to purchase supplies for his long journey. The Queen supported him because she wanted to find a quick route to East Asia by sailing across the Atlantic. This would avoid the dangerous and expansive overland routes and the eastward water routes controlled by the Portuguese.
how yall suppose to be the website to give us the answer but yall asking us
In 1485, Columbus presented his plans to John II, King of Portugal. He proposed the king equip three sturdy ships and grant Columbus one year's time to sail out into the Atlantic, search for a western route to the Orient, and return. Columbus also requested he be made "Great Admiral of the Ocean", a…ppointed governor of any and all lands he discovered, and given one-tenth of all revenue from those lands. The king submitted the proposal to his experts, who rejected it. It was their considered opinion that Columbus's estimation of a travel distance of 2,400 miles (3,860 km) was, in fact, far too short.

Christopher Columbus didn't usually drive a vehicle, he road in a nao(boat) called The Santa Maria...
Yes, they did, upon the second time he went to them saying the world is round. He said that if he sailed west, he would find India and China much faster than going east. All the other major sea-going countries (France, Britain, Portugal) had all said no, so he went back to Spain.
She was the one who funded for his voyage when Columbus was turned down by King John II.
To see if there was an easy trade with Asia rather than going around southern africa.
What are 5 good reasons why Christopher Columbus asked the king and queen of Spain why he wanted a trip to find a western route to Asia?
Christopher Colunbus is the person who thought the world was flat. So when you sailed you would sail right off the earth.
Christopher Columbus is not a title granted to anyone. It is a name given to a person.
Since Christopher Columbus is already dead and has been for a solid period of time, I doubt you will be able to ask him any questions anytime soon.
His voyage during which he discovered America was sponsored and financed by Queen Isabella of Spain.
This question makes no sense. Isabella and Ferdinand were both already King and Queen. Columbus didn't make them anything except money.
Schoolchildren are taught that Christopher Columbus wanted to find America, or in some cases that he wanted to prove that the world was round. He convinced Queen Isabella of Spain to finance the journey, and she sold her personal jewelry to do so. He bravely headed west and found the Americas and Ca…ribbean, making friends with natives along the way. He returned to Spain in glory, having discovered the New World was told to give them money, new cities and countries, and people to become Christians. ( Full Answer )
What did christopher Columbus promise to the king and queen of Spain in return for the grant needed for his expodition?
That he would claim new land he found as he sailed trying to find a water route to Asia and he mistakenly landed upon US and claimed more land for England.Does this make sense to you?
Columbus asked the king and queen for excessive titles (like being called the Admiral,) he also asked to be the Governor of any establishments made, and he wanted 10% of what he found (mainly gold.)

Probably in the hope of gaining more overseas territory for Spain.Also for the rumoured riches that Columbus would bring back.
Christopher Columbus, under the auspices of King Ferdinand andQueen Isabella, set out from Spain to find an all-water route toAsia.
She had no problem paying for Columbus'journey. On the contrary,she was smart enough to only pay him the promised amount a yearlater, in 1493 when he had safely returned, bringing along enoughgold to immediately cover the Queen's expenses for the trip. Isabella did however make problems when Columbu…s claimed 10% of allincome to be made from the New World. Columbus spent the rest ofhis life in ligitation against the Spanish Crown, without everbeing awarded this part of his hoped-for payment. He did not helphis own case by showing gross mismanagement, wholesale theft and areign of terror when he was awarded a Governorship of the islandshe had discovered. Spain had him transported back in chains. ( Full Answer )
