Christopher Columbus (31 October 1451 - 20 May 1506) was an explorer, colonizer, andnavigator, born in the Republic of Genoa, in northwestern Italy.Under the auspices of the Catholic Monarchs of Spain, he completedfour voyages across the Atlantic Ocean that led to general Europeanawareness of the A…merican continents in the Western Hemisphere.Those voyages and his efforts to establish permanent settlements inthe island of Hispaniola initiated the process of Spanishcolonization, which foreshadowed the general European colonizationof the "New World." In the context of emerging western imperialism and economiccompetition between European kingdoms seeking wealth through theestablishment of trade routes and colonies, Columbus' far-fetchedproposal to reach the East Indies by sailing westward received thesupport of the Spanish crown, which saw in it a promise, howeverremote, of gaining the upper hand over rival powers in the contestfor the lucrative spice trade with Asia. During his first voyage in1492, instead of reaching Japan as he had intended, Columbus landedin the Bahamas archipelago, at a locale he named San Salvador. Overthe course of three more voyages, Columbus visited the Greater andLesser Antilles, as well as the Caribbean coast of Venezuela andCentral America, claiming them for the Spanish Empire. Though Columbus was not the first European explorer to reach theAmericas (having been preceded by the Norse expedition led by LeifErickson,) Columbus's voyages led to the first lasting Europeancontact with America, inaugurating a period of European explorationand colonization of foreign lands that lasted for severalcenturies. They had, therefore, an enormous impact in thehistorical development of the modern Western world. Columbushimself saw his accomplishments primarily in the light of thespreading of the Christian religion. The name Christopher Columbus is the Anglicization of the LatinChristophorus Columbus. His name in Italian is Kristoforo Colombo,and in Spanish it is Cristobal Colon. Columbus was born between 25August and 31 October 1451 in Genoa, part of modern Italy. Hisfather was Domenico Colombo, a middle-classed wool weaver whoworked both in Genoa and Savina and who also owned a cheese standat which young Christopher worked as a helper. Christopher's motherwas Susanna Fontanels. Bartolomeo, Giovanni Peregrine and Giacomowere his brothers. Bartolomeo worked in a cartography workshop inLisbon for at least part of his adulthood. Columbus never wrote in his native language, which is presumed tohave been a Genie's variety of Liberian. In one of his writings,Columbus claims to have gone to the sea at the age of 10. In 1470,the Columbus family moved to Savina, where Domenico took over atavern. In the same year, Columbus was on a Genoese ship hired inthe service of Renie I of Anjou to support his attempt to conquerthe Kingdom of Naples. Some modern historians have argued thatColumbus was not from Genoa, but instead, from Catalonia, Portugal,or Spain. These competing hypotheses have generally been discountedby mainstream scholars. In May 1476, he took part in an armed convoy sent by Genoa to carrya valuable cargo to northern Europe. He docked in Bristol, England;Gala, Ireland and was possibly in Iceland in 1477. In 1479 Columbusreached his brother Bartolomeo in Lisbon, while continuing tradingfor the Centurion's family. He married Felipa Monies Priestley,daughter of the Porto Santogovernor and Portuguese nobleman ofGenoese origin Bartolomeo Peristyle. In 1479 or 1480, his son DiegoColumbus was born. Between 1482 and 1485 Columbus traded along thecoasts of West Africa, reaching the Portuguese trading post ofAlumina at the Guinea coast. Some records report that Filippa diedin 1485. It is also speculated that Columbus may have simply lefthis first wife. In either case Columbus found a mistress in Spainin 1487, a 20-year-old orphan named Beatriz Enrique DE Adriana. Columbus was not a scholarly man. Yet he studied these books, madehundreds of marginal notations in them and came out with ideasabout the world that were characteristically simple and strong andsometimes wrong kind of ideas that the self-educated person gainsfrom independent reading and clings to in defiance of what anyoneelse tries to tell him. Ambitious, Columbus eventually learned Latin, as well as Portugueseand Castilian and read widely about astronomy, geography, andhistory, including the works of Ptolemy, Cardinal PierreDilly'sImago Mind, the travels of Marco Polo and Sir JohnMandeville, Pliny's Natural History, and Pope Pius II's HistoriaRerum Ubique Gestarum. According to historian Edmund Morgan, Columbus sailed for King Ferdinand II and Queen Isabella of Spain.On his first trip, Columbus led an expedition with three ships, theNina, the Pinta , and the Santa Maria (captained by Columbus), andabout 90 crew members. They set sail on Aug. 3, 1492 from Palls,Spain, and on October 11, 1492, spotted the Caribbean islands offsoutheastern North America. They landed on an island they calledGuantanamo, but Columbus later renamed it San Salvador. They weremet by the local Taine Indians, many of whom were captured byColumbus' men and later sold into slavery. Columbus thought he hadmade it to Asia, and called this area the Indies, and called itsinhabitants Indians. Throughout his life, Columbus also showed a keen interest in theBible and in biblical prophecies and would often quote biblicaltexts in his letters and logs. For example, part of the argumentthat he submitted to the Spanish Catholic Monarchs when he soughttheir support for his proposed expedition to reach the Indies bysailing west was based on his reading of the Second Book of Esdras(see 2 Esdras 6:42), which Columbus took to mean that the Earth ismade of six parts of land to one of the water). Towards the end oflife, Columbus produced a Book of Prophecies in which his career asan explorer is interpreted in the light of Christian eschatologyand apocalyptic. While exploring the islands in the area and looking for gold toloot, Columbus' men traveled to the islands of Hispaniola (nowdivided into Haiti and the Dominican Republic), Cuba, and manyother smaller islands. On the return trip, the Santa Maria waswrecked, and the captain of the Pinta sailed off on his own to tryto beat Columbus back. Columbus returned to Spain in the Nina,arriving on March 15, 1493. Christopher Columbus also took theNative Americans back to Europe, and they became slaves eventhought the Native Americans were nice and respectfully to Columbusand his people. But Columbus didn't care how the Native Americansacted to him and his group. All Columbus cared was how wealthytheir mother country was. There was also two people who joinedChristopher's voyage. They were the Pinzon Brothers. These brotherswere Spanish sailors, explorers and fishermen, natives of Palos dela Frontera, Huelva, Spain. All three, Martin Alonso, FranciscoMartin and Vicente participated in Christopher Columbus's firstexpedition to the New World (generally considered constituting thediscovery of the Americas by Europeans) and in other voyages ofdiscovery and exploration in the late 15th and early 16thcenturies. The brothers were sailors of great prestige along the coast ofHuelva, and thanks to their many commercial voyages and voyagesalong the coast, they were famous and well off, respected along theentire coast. The strategic position offered by the historicAtlantic port of Palos, from which expeditions had set forth to theAfrican coasts as well as to the war against Portugal, for whichmost of the armadas set forth from this town, organized, on manyoccasions, by this family. Martin Alonso and Vicente , captains of the caravels La Pinta andLa Nina, respectively on Columbus's first voyage, are the bestknown of the brothers, but the third brother, the lesser-knownFrancisco Martin, was aboard the Pinta as its master. It was thanks to Martin Alonso that the seamen of the Tinto-Odielwere motivated to participate in Columbus's undertaking. He alsosupported the project economically, supplying money from hispersonal fortune. Francisco, master of the Pinta, appears to have participated inColumbus's third and fourth voyages of discovery as well as in thefirst, but because his name was a common one, the facts of his lifecannot be easily sorted out from those of contemporaries with thesame name. Vicente the youngest of the three brothers, besides participatingin Columbus's first voyage, once Columbus's monopoly ontransatlantic trade was ended, made several voyages to the Americason his own account and is generally credited with the discovery ofBrazil. Although they sometimes quarreled with Columbus, on severaloccasions the Pinzin brothers were instrumental in preventingmutiny against him, particularly during the first voyage. On 6October, Martin intervened in a dispute between Columbus and thecrew by proposing an altered course (which Columbus eventuallyaccepted) and thus calmed simmering unrest. A few days later, onthe night of 9 October 1492, the brothers were forced to intercedeonce again, and this time they proposed the compromise that if noland was sighted during the next three days, the expedition wouldreturn to Spain. On the morning of the 12th (there is some questionof the location): see Guanahani) was in fact sighted by JuanRodriguez Bermejo (also known as Rodrigo de Triana). ( Full Answer )

Answer Columbus was to be made "Admiral of the Seas" and would receive a portion of all profits. The terms were unusually generous. More Information (Credit goes to "Christopher Columbus" related link) According to the contract that Columbus made with King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella, if C…olumbus discovered any new islands or mainland, he would receive many high rewards. In terms of power, he would be given the rank of Admiral of the Ocean Sea and appointed Viceroy and Governor of all the new lands. He had the right to nominate three persons, from whom the sovereigns would choose one, for any office in the new lands. He would be entitled to 10% of all the revenues from the new lands in perpetuity; this part was denied to him in the contract, although it was one of his demands.

Christopher Columbus was an explorer. Some people viewed him as a hero and others as a villain. He discovered many new lands, but as he discovered these lands he killed many innocent people that treated him kindly.
the queen of Spain. her name was queen Isabella, and the kings name was Phillipe
He was named Christopher because he was named that . Italian: Cristoforo Colombo Spanish Cristobal Colon Latin Christophorus Columbus
He was trying to get to the east indies but ended up in the New World (Americas). He thought the world was 1/3 of its actual size.
At first he wanted to prove that the world is round and he also wanted to get some spice from India
From India he brought slaves, corn, cassava bread, tobbacco, and colorful parrots. He greeted Spain with these new items. Hope this helps!
he five fears: seamonsters, scurvy (lack of vitamin c), getting lost at sea, not knowing what to expect (could be sailing to no end), falling off the edge of the earth. Source(s): international studies.
he sufferd through a shot leg a went an extra 6 miles to get medical help
All of them started the voyage, otherwise we would not think of them as his ships. Not all of them got back to Spain, however.
Why did Christopher Columbus a difficult time finding sailors to take the journey to the new world with him?
Columbus had a hard time finding men because many thought the world was flat therefore they thought at some point they would fall off the earth, but some of them thought there were monsters that would tip the boat or something like that. hope that helps
well i know he first sailed to the Canary Islands, owned by Castile, where he reprovisioned and made repairs.
He wanted to find an all-water route to Asia by sailing west. He was right that one might reach Asia by sailing west but he did not know that the continents of North and South America lay between Europe and Asia. What he accomplished was of far greater significance in the long run.
Christopher Columbus expected to find a western route to "the Indies" meaning China, Japan, and other places in south and southeast Asia.
Voyage to the Americas would not have been possible without the support of Queen Isabella of Spain, also he was a sailer
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 )
