He sailed across the ocean blue. In fourteen hundred andninety-two. Sailing for the king and queen of Spain, Italian-born Columbus waslooking for a passage to China without going around the tip ofAfrica or across the Middle East on land. Using erroneous figuresfor the Earth's circumference, he thou…ght that he could reach Asiaby sailing west across the Atlantic. As far as he knew, the giantocean west of Europe and Africa was the same giant ocean that waseast of China and Southeast Asia. He ended up landing in the Americas, which he did not realize was anew world until much later. The islands of the Caribbean wereeventually named the West Indies, a reference to the East Indiesislands of Indonesia, the Philippines, and New Guinea. ( Full Answer )
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 )

Christopher Columbus was an important man in history. He lived inItaly, Portugal, Porto Santo Island and Spain in his lifetime.
He thought he had arrived in India, but found an island called Hispaniola. He was a very disappointed man because the natives didn't have any gold to give him. He cut off a Native American hand because the man only brought him gold nuggets. Columbus, despite the popular belief, did NOT land in North… America. Nor did he "find" it and his 4 voyages to the "New World" were very much failures. On the last one he was shipwrecked for over a year before help came and soon after getting back home he died. His youngest son sued the Spanish crown ( didn't win) for the deal his father had made with them when he sailed in 1492. ( Full Answer )

There is significant evidence suggesting Columbus was, in fact, a Spaniard even though legend holds that he was from Genoa, Italy. - Correspondences with his brother were in Spanish. (If they were Italian, wouldn't they have written in Italian?) - Correspondences with his bankers in Genoa, Ital…y were in Spanish. (If Columbus were Italian, why would he communicate with his Italian bankers in Spanish?) - Columbus never claimed to be from Genoa, and in fact was always vague about where he was from. Although the myth said he went to sea as a young adult, his own writings claimed he went to sea as a boy. - There is evidence of a merchant family named Colon (the accepted Spanish version of Columbus) which was on the wrong end of some internal political strife in Spain, so disguising his origins would be in his self-interest when approaching the royal court for backing of his expeditions.

that question cannot be answered as as to how , or where , but assuming that this happeened around 1490's it is safe to assume that his mom is actually long dead by now.
He should have, because he prepared for a trip to the EastIndies that he was convinced was a little over 3,000 miles long,while in reality the westward trip would have been over 20,000miles long. He purely by accident stumbled upon the Caribbeanislands and to his death remained absolutely convinced …that he hadfound islands close to the coast of India. . As it was, he did not die - not even almost - during his tripsacross the ocean, but he had to be saved from death by starvationonce, when he got stranded on one of the islands on one of hislater trips and no-one knew where exactly to find him.
