Christopher Columbus was an Italian who was "sponsored" by the queen/king of Spain to set out on a voyage to find the Northwest Passage, a route that was believed to take you to the coast of Asia without dialing around Africa. He set out on this voyage with three ships, known today as the NiÃ±a, P…inta, and the Santa Maria. These ships departed on August, 3 1492 and made landfall at San Salvador on October 12. From there his voyage continued to explore the coast of Cuba, Hispanola, and current day Haiti and the Dominican Republic, where the Santa Maria ran aground on Christmas day, and was forced to be abandoned. Columbus then left some men in a settlement they built, La Navidad, and sailed for Spain. There was a strong storm along the way and the caravan ended up landing in Portugal, Castillian Spain bitter enemy, but they were spared, and after spending a week in Portugal they returned "home" to Spain.

From the King and Queen of Spain at that time....at first they didnt fund him but later decided to by giving him ships and money
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. Additionally, he would also have the option of buying one-eighth interest in any commercial venture with the new lands and receive one-eighth of the profits. ( Full Answer )
In 1492, Christopher Columbus left his port in Spain and travelled to Cuba and back.
Columbus and the sailors' journey ended with exploration of so manynew islands. This was during the time when the Spaniards had sourrelations with the people of Hispaniola.
On the evening of August 3, 1492 Columbus began his first journey to the New World from Palos de la Frontera in the Province of Huelva, Spain.
We would not be be here today living the way we are living now. Had Columbus not journeyed to the US, America would have stayedwild and uncivilized, probably full of Indian tribes. In turn,Europe would have rotted and decayed due to its political andeconomical conflicts.
Well, his whole journey was to prove that the earth was round and go all the way across the world to China, and come back with Chinese stuff. It WAS a difficult journey, yes indeed. But Christopher C. made it to North America, so if you think about the meaning of his journey, no he wasn't successful…. ( Full Answer )
because we wouldn't know what its like to travel and explore the world and to be a leader to others and have followers..
You mean, 1492. Ostensibly, he was looking for Asia. The location of his first landfall in the New World is unclear, but probably somewhere in the Bermudas.
Christopher Columbus went on his journey because he heard about the riches in India and wanted to find a quicker route to India (instead of walking which was dangerous because of robbers). When he tried he found San Salvador (off the coast of Florida) also part of the US.
Columbus set on his famous voyage of discovery with three ships, the Santa Maria, the Pinta and the Nina. The voyage was fairly easy, not least because the ships has the current and the trade winds to help them, and the weather was pleasantly hot. However, the crew nearly mutinied when they feared… "falling of the edge of the world"! ( Full Answer )
Marco Polo I want to add here that Columbus wasn't coming to "America" he was looking for Asia and found an island called Hispaniola. He never reached North America.
the queen of Spain. her name was queen Isabella, and the kings name was Phillipe
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 believed, the world being round rather than flat, that if he sailed west he would find a short cut to reach the land of India and conduct trade with them there. Of course he found a new continent in between Europe and India.
Yes and no. Yes: He left on his first voyage to the "New World" in 1492 from Palos de la Frontera, a town located in southwestern Spain. And no: His intention was to sail to Asia, but instead he landed in the Bahamas archipelago, at a locale he named San Salvador. And, there were people alread…y living there that called their place Guanahani. America was not called America at the time, it was given that name after the Florentine explorer Amerigo Vespucci, which was at a later date. So, technically, there was no America at the time Columbus 'discovered' it. In fact, he never set foot on American soil, not on North or South mainlands, anyway. And so the myth that Columbus discovered America is most likely false. He, instead, discovered the Caribbean Islands and Central America. It was the other explorers from other European countries that helped colonize the Americas in the years that followed. Plus: Columbus was not the first European explorer to reach the Americas. About five centuries earlier a Norse expedition led by Leif Ericson established the short-lived colony of Vinland in what is now Newfoundland, which is on the North American continent, proper. Also plus: The Bering land bridge is believed to have enabled human migration to the Americas from Asia about 20,000 years ago. So the people that Columbus encountered in 1492 had already 'discovered' it many thousands of years before he was even born. So, yes: Christopher Columbus sailed from Spain to America. But no: That is not the whole story. ( Full Answer )

India , but he ended up in America/West Indies, hence the name the West Indies ;)
Most explorers had sponsors to finance their journeys, since ships, crews and the food needed cost alot of money. The church and kings usually demanded percentages of the goods that explorers would bring back from the conquests in exchange for financing the journeys.
He sailed because: 1st: to show people that the earth is not flat AND 2nd:cause there wasn't any submarines at their times
His journey wasn't to discover America. He was going to India. He just thought it was India.
When America's founding father discovered the great land ofAmerica, he started a whole system of trade. Many of the populationof Europe heard of Columbus' expedition, and decided to go see forthemselves, considering it was deemed safe for travel after theMayflower expedition. This continued until it… was unbearable toNative Indians. The Europeans saw great oppurtunity with exchangingitems with the Natives and that huge trade system is called theColumbian Exchange. Items that were traded were; livestock, crops,people and even the diseases. The outcome was the Indians dying offof the disease and spoiled food items given from the Europeans. ( Full Answer )
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.
Christopher Columbus made a total of four trips to the Caribbean and to South America in the years of 1492-1504.
Columbus made four voyages to America, not just one, over aten-year period from 1492-1502. But yes, he returned from them allsuccessfully, eventually dying of what is now believed to beReiter's Syndrome in the Spanish town of Vallidolid in 1506. Hisremains lay buried there until the French takeover …of Hispaniola in1795, when for some reason they were transferred there, but thenreturned to Spain in 1898 where they now lie buried in an elaboratetomb in Seville Cathedral. . Columbus was not the first person to discover America- theViking explorer Leif Erikson landed there in the 11th Century, andthere is also some evidence that it was first of all discovered bythe Welsh, under an expedition led by Prince Madoc, who befriendedthe Mandan Indian tribe and led to the Welsh language being spokenamongst some native Americans up until the mid-19th Century.However, both English and American historians are keen to glossover this due to a mutual dislike of the Welsh nation.
