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 )
Rodrigo de Triana Juan Rodriguez ; Martin Alonso Pinzon was the captain of the Pinta; that's just a few I know
christopher Columbus was born at Genoa!! ,he had three boats ,he died and was buried
Christopher Columbus was born in the Republic of Genoa (Italy) in1451. He later moved to Spain. His exact nationality is unknown. Being Genoese, he may have beenfrom the city of Genoa (and therefore Italian). Others believe hewas a Nobleman from the Genoese possession of Chios, and so wasGreek. Oth…ers say his ancestry is Spanish or Portugese. He was Italian, but he sailed for the king and queen of Spain, KingFerdinand and Queen Isabella. ( Full Answer )
Columbus landed in Palos, Spain March 15, 1493, but he will sail again in Sept. 1493 with 17 ships and 2,000 colonist. When he reaches Hispaniola he found that the crew he left was killed by the Native Americans, so he built a new settlement called Isabella. He, then, sailed on to look for a route t…o Asia. Later he will return to Isabella and find the colonist sick, dead, and fighting with the Native Americans. He returned to Spain in1496 and his 3rd voyage will begin in 1498 which resulted in the discovery of the South American mainland. His last great trip was in 1502-04 along the south side of the Gulf of Mexico. He died in Valladolid, Spain and was buried in a monastery near Seville, but in 1536 his remains were removed to Santo Domingo in Hispaniola. In 1796 it is said that they were moved again to Havana, Cuba, but in1899 brought back to Spain and in 1902 reburied in Seville. ( Full Answer )
Christopher Columbus was a man who is known as a navigator who sailed around the world with his three ships, Nina, Pinta and Santa Maria.He was the first European that sailed to North America after the vikings.
Christopher Columbus made his first journey with a crew that wasadventurous and daring. It is good to know that they did not knowwhat to expect to find when they set out on their voyage.
Yes, they did. On october, the seventh Columbus had to face a mutiny because the crew felt taht they were lost in the middle of the Ocean. At the beginning of the voyage, the did not trust very much in an foreigner who wanted to carry out a crazy project; however they finally accepted to enroll in s…uch an adventure. But after thirty days sailing in the middle of the scary ocean they thought that Columbus was lying about the distance to sail to get ashore. The admiral could finally suffocate the mutiny, but three days later a secon mutiny, harder than the first one, occurred. They were completely sure that Columbus was not telling the truth about the distance to sail to find land, and that they were being deceived into thinking they were not lost. This time the Pinta's captain, Martin Alonso Pinzon had to intervene, because the crew even thought of throwing Columbus off the ship. As Alonso Pinzon was a well known mariner who counted on the admiration of the crew, the seafarers calmed down, but Columbus had to commit himself to return if they did not find land in three days. Two days later, they finally came across the New World. ( Full Answer )
Christopher Columbus sailed the ocean blue. There are manyarguments about whether he discovered America, so that has to beleft up to your opinion based on evidence.

Christopher Columbus was a brave man. But he failed many times. I am Shure at times he wanted to give up. He failed when he joined in the attempt to conquer the Kingdom of Naples. He was captured by Portuguese ships. He didn't even find India, like he was supposed to. He failed at many things but th…at didn't get him down. He just kept on going. This is a valuable lesson to be learned, don't let you're failures get you down. ( Full Answer )
On a scale from one to 10. . .I'd say a 5. He may be good a navigating the sea, but not so much in other areas. Points for trying though.
Christopher columbus is from the Genoan Republic, near Italy. Christopher Columbus was born in Genoa Italy in 1451.
yes christopher treated his crew very well, he gave them time out and fed them well
He was an Italian navigator and explorer who convinced the SpanishMonarchy of of Isabella of Castille and Ferdinand of Aragon financea 3 ship expedition to seek a westward route over the ocean toreach Asia (assuming it would be a straight shot over the oceanrather than interrupted by those pesky Ame…rican continents) tocompete with the overland routes through the Middle-East and long,dangerous ocean routes around the Horn of Africa and across theIndian Ocean. ( Full Answer )
noting Columbus sailed to the New World 3 times. And I suspect the crew was properly paid.
He probably ordered his crew to do it and he also had hands cut off for the Natives that didn't bring him gold. He was also cruel to his own people. When the settlers on Hispaniola grew hungry and sick he commanded them to hunt for more gold. He held people's salaries and hanged colonists for crimes… as minor as stealing fruit. ( Full Answer )

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.
Christopher Columbus landed on Guanahani Island, Bahamas, whichlocated southeast of Florida, on October 12, 1492. But actually hewas searching for India and believed he actually found it.
During his first voyage in 1492, he reached the New World insteadof arriving at Japan as he had intended, landing on an island inthe Bahamas archipelago that he named "San Salvador". Over thecourse of three more voyages, he visited the Greater and LesserAntilles, as well as the Caribbean coast of Ve…nezuela and CentralAmerica, claiming all of it for the Crown of Castile. ( Full Answer )
He attended Prince Henry's school of Navigation. He was from Spain ( not Italy) and was a cabin boy at about 12 years old.
Because no one knows for sure when Christopher Columbus was born,only that he was born between October 31 1450 and October 1451 sohe could be any astrological sign but is most likely born in the(Chinese) year of the Goat.
How about "Hey, look! The coast of India!" (see, Columbus thought he had found another route to India... he didn't realize that he had found a whole new continent at the time).
He was named Christopher because he was named that . Italian: Cristoforo Colombo Spanish Cristobal Colon Latin Christophorus Columbus
Columbus's three ships had a total crew of ninety men--85 Spaniards, four Italians and one Portuguese.
Probably, either how happy they were gonna be whenever they were planning to take credit for the new world from others, or eith how the white man was gonna take over all the new "indians".
Water, wine, olive oil, molasses, cheese, honey, raisins, rice,garlic, almonds, sea biscuits, dry legumes such as chickpeas,lentils, beans, salted and barreled sardines, anchovies, meat, andfish. Dried beef, hardtack, and dried peas for all three meals.
Got it. On the first voyage, the crew was paid as follows: Masters and pilots, 2000 maravedis per month; able seamen, 1000 maravedis per month; ordinary seamen and ship's boys, 666 maravedis per month. Total payroll was 250,180 per month.
The Santa Maria carried 41 crew including Columbus, the Nina 24 andthe Pinta 26, making a total of 91.
they ate and drank water vinegar wine olive oil molasses cheese raisins rice garlic sea food fish...........
Certainly. That was one of the reasons Columbus needed money from Queen Isabella, to purchase the ships, supplies and hire crews.
Soon after he set sail because the barrels of water and dried food both leaked and spoiled.
He got his crew because they were his brothers and the rest were his friends.
christopher's dad was a weaver so he worked for him then he was a cabin boy
In the age of exploration only the rich had proper education and the poor had some education. Most of Columbus crew thought the world was flat and they would fall of the face of the earth they also thought the sea contained monsters so they were afraid of that also.
Columbus and his crew were not searching for America - the were searching for an alternate route to the Indies when they found the Americas quite by accident.
yes but some people on them on the mayflower he didnt like because they kelp saying they were lost a sea Christopher Colombus said that is they didnt make it back to cut off his head and they were teasing him that he wasnt gonna make it.... =)
The 39 men he left on the island in the Bahamas were killed by the Native Americans. He does not record any death on his 33 day voyage.
The Columbus crew is an American professional club which competes in the Major League Soccer. Some of most notable players are Emilio Renteria, Alejandro Moreno, and Will Hesmer.
Columbus Crew Stadium is located in Columbus, Ohio in the United States of America. Its street address is 1 Black and Gold Boulevard. The stadium hosts a number of events, as well as other services such as catering, premium suites, party suits, premium seating, and event suites.
Since Columbus always believed he had found a way to the Indies and never considered that he might have found an "undiscovered" continent, if he crew had told someone that he didn't discover America, he would have said they were telling the truth.
Yes they were. First because they had survived the ocean crossing, and secondly because they thought they had found South East Asia.
