Christopher Columbus was an explorer and anavigator. He is well known for his exploration of going out west. .
Christopher Columbus (1451-1506) was the first European explorer to begin the exploration and colonization of the Americas. On October 12, 1492, he landed at a small island in the Bahamas. He then sailed south to Cuba and Hispaniola, and returned to Spain believing that he had found islands off the… coast of Asia. He made three other voyages to the New World, and was temporarily an unpopular governor of the Spanish colony on Hispaniola, leading to a short imprisonment in Spain until he was exonerated by King Ferdinand.

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 born in the Republic of Genoa (Italy) in1451. He later moved to Spain. His exact nationality is unknown.

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 )

They stored their food in earthenware jugs and in wooden casks. They also stored in other containers but i am not aware of them so you can google that and probably find the answer there.
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.
His life was very normal and received a good education......... Columbus spent some of his early life at his fathers trade ofweaving and later became a soldier.
Why were there no lucayans living in the Bahamas 25 years after christopher Columbus came to the Bahamas?
Because Columbus raped them out. He took some to Spain as slaves and the others died on the various Caribbean islands of European deceases and slavery.
He did not discover America. Infact he found modern day haiti he stayed for about a week

Christopher Columbus's ship, Santa Maria, got shipwrecked. He also had a lack of food and water. On his way back from the first voyage he had to leave 40 men behind. When he came back most of them were dead. He enslaved most of the natives. Years later he got sent to prison for what he had done
no one- it was like the 1500s- and how could he contact anyone from the middle of the Atlantic ocean?
He my friends was born in 1451-1506. He died in 1506 because of an heart attack. He actually went to Asia when he wanted to go to India and China to trade chillies. He had three brothers and three ships. the names of the ships were Nina, The Pinto Santa Maria.
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.
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 )
Presumably somewhere under the auspices of King Ferdinard. Of course he wasn't Spanish, he was Italian.
It was to sail to India but he sailed to America so he called the strangers he saw Indians because he thought he went to India.
His impact was very minor if he had any. In his life he was considered a failure. Not only didn't he find a water route to Asia, but he also did not bring home riches, gold, or spices. As far as the crown was concerned he didn't meet the demands of his contract with them. When he died he was broke, …sick, and was a disgrace. His son files a suit against the crown to try to claim some of the contract in his father's name after his death. ( Full Answer )
This is not an actual question. Someone must have not been paying attention while typing.
Christopher Columbus' father was Domenico Colombo, a middle-classwool weaver, who later also had a cheese stand both in Genoa andSavona, Italy.
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.
No changes. He did very little and wasn't where he thought he was.The contributions of Columbus has been overly exaggerated. He was afailure and a greedy mean man.
Columbus wasn't that important, so someone else would have come along and found the islands he found. His legend has been over blown and made the man into larger than life. He actually did very little, was a selfish man, and treated his crew with disrepect. He killed the natives he found and only wa…nted the gold. He died fighting the crown for the promises that made him when he sailed in 1492. ( Full Answer )
He was named Christopher because he was named that . Italian: Cristoforo Colombo Spanish Cristobal Colon Latin Christophorus Columbus
Christopher columbus spent most of his days on ships or watchingships. He somtimes helped his father woolweave.

Columbus never got to the "Americas". He did land in islands in the Bahamas and never reached the American continent. Had he landed in South America or Mexico he may have found Incas and Mayans as well as many other Native American peoples.
At first he wanted to prove that the world is round and he also wanted to get some spice from India
I'll tell you... :) How about you get off of that lazy bum of yours and actually do the research? :)
very difficult and crazy. Some of his crew were about to rebel if they didn't see signs of land soon, so he was in danger the whole time.
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 allowed the people to have a better life on the islands or villages he found.
He was in 1492 and it began middle 1400's. So he was in the late Renaissance.
you are right young lad, because the Amerindians is the one who discovered the land that's why there were people living on it . Christopher rediscovered the land.
He meant he discovered a new land for his country, because they were conquerors. People already living there didn't mean anything to them, unless those native people could fight to defend their land, but Columbus had guns.
He made four voyages, in which he mainly discovered and named theislands in the Caribbean area. His efforts at colonization largelyfailed: usually at each trip he found the colonists he had leftbehind earlier either massacred or in full revolt because thegolden opportunities he had promised had neve…r materialized.
