No he knew the Earth was round he just underestimated the size of the Earth. i.e He did think the Earth was as big as it is.
Contradicting popular belief, Christopher Columbus didnt think that the world was round, he thought he could sail around the world without falling off the edge. People didnt think this could be done, but Christopher Columbus's reasoning for this was that he could reach the east indies because the wo…rld was a cylinder. If you roll up a map you can under stand this because then, nobody had discovered up past the edges of Antarctica and the Arctic. So, Christopher Columbus didnt have much support in going to the east indies. Also, the Spanish didnt give him a very good ship either. They thought he was going to die. When he got there he killed many of the natives and enslaved others. That is why we think he is crazy now, but this isnt what we teach in elementary school ( Full Answer )

What did Christopher Columbus think he had discovered on his voyage and what did he really discover?
He thought he discovered Asia but they soon discovered he was wrong and called it the New World.
One was an "offical" and the other personal. He gave the offical one to the crown and kept the other for his use.
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.
