Christopher Columbus (1451 - May 20, 1506) was an Italian navigator, colonizer and explorer whose voyages across the Atlantic Ocean led to general European awareness of the American continents in the Western Hemisphere.. Though not the first to reach the Americas from Afro-Eurasia - preceded s…ome five hundred years by Leif Ericson, and perhaps by others - Columbus initiated widespread contact between Europeans and indigenous Americans. With his several hapless attempts at establishing a settlement on the island of Hispaniola, he personally initiated the process of Spanish colonization which foreshadowed general European colonization of the "New World." (The term "pre-Columbian" is sometimes used to refer to the peoples and cultures of the Americas before the arrival of Columbus and his European successors.). His initial 1492 voyage came at a critical time of growing national imperialism and economic competition between developing nation states seeking wealth from the establishment of trade routes and colonies. In this sociopolitical climate, Columbus's far-fetched scheme won the attention of Queen Isabella of Spain.. Severely underestimating the circumference of the Earth, he hypothesized that a westward route from Iberia to the Indies would be shorter and more direct than the overland trade route through Arabia. If true, this would allow Spain entry into the lucrative spice trade - heretofore commanded by the Arabs and Italians. Following his plotted course, he instead landed within the Bahamas Archipelago at a locale he named San Salvador. Mistaking the North-American island for the East-Asian mainland, he referred to its inhabitants as "Indians".. Academic consensus is that Columbus was born in Genoa , though there are other theories . The name Christopher Columbus is the Anglicisation of the Latin Christophorus Columbus. The name is rendered in modern Italian as Cristoforo Colombo, in Portuguese as CristÃ³vÃ£o Colombo (formerly Christovam Colom), and in Spanish as CristÃ³bal ColÃ³n. . The anniversary of Columbus' 1492 landing in the Americas (Columbus Day) is observed throughout the Americas and in Spain on October 12. ( Full Answer )

Columbus explored for who ever could sponsor him. when he explored America Spain sponsored him,at first he tried the king of Portugal,England and France they all refused
He explored South America, Carribean Islands, and Central America. And for your information he did not explore India he thought he did that's why the Native Indians are called Indians because he thought he landed in India.
When Christopher Columbus was still young, he believed he was appointed by God to spread the Gospel to heathen lands; and so that was his biggest purpose. He wrote about it in his own journal. if you read a book called "The Light and the Glory" by Peter Marshall and David Manuel, you can see for you…rself. They took years to find this stuff.

Explorer would mean he discovered and left. But he is a Conquerer. He Raped,Murdered, and Pillaged the Native Americans which makes him a Conquerer. Which means everyone has always been taught wrong. Especially seeing that when he came the Norwegians were already here.
Christopher Columbous was an important explorer because he was the first to discover the New World - America! He crossed the Atlantic Ocean in search of new lands, which was a brave and daring expedition. Also, he helped gained economic growth of Spain by travelling to distant lands to trade goods.
\nThe proper way to ask this question would be, "Where did Christopher Columbus travel?" and he landed in the Indies, in Trinidad specifically.
Actually, his real reason was to search for another route to Asia for spices; but in the end, he found the 'new world'...(Americas)
Americans are so ignorant, just like you, first of all their is only one America from Alaska to the south pole, you stole the name, but all of us who are born-ed in this continent are Americans, Columbus did not arrive in or at America, since the continent was named after he died, Americo Vespucci a…nd Italian Geographer new that this land mass was different from the rest of the known world, and Spain and Portugal claimed it in equal half's. the year 12th of october 1492, the place he left puerto de palos EspaÃ±a, the place he disembarked was what we know now as Haiti, not what you idiots think is America.

Christopher Columbus was officially an Italian explorer for Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand. However, he was also accused of exploiting his position as governor and viceroy of the Indies and was arrested on behalf of governing tyrannically.
he explored the Americas and he went back to Spain and gave the queen his notes that was then published and he then brought a lot more people back to the Americas
Tat he would bring back all riches that he found. Queen Isabella promiced him all the land he found would go to him and it would be owned by Christopher Columbus. (my amazing social studies teacher taught me! HE is thee best)

He was funded by the King and Queen of France to try to make his way to India to get spices but ended up discovering the Americas
Columbus' exploration of South America was limited. On his third voyage in 1498, from August 4 through August 12, he explored the Gulf of Paria which separates the island of Trinidad from Venezuela. He explored the mainland of South America, including the Orinco River.
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 )

In 1497, Italian-born John Cabot sailed from England to North America, looking for a northern route to Asia. Accounts vary on where he landed; most likely it was the coast of Newfoundland, Labrador or Cape Breton.
Christopher Columbus discovered America (actually, not the mainland of America) but he did not know about it. He wanted to reach India, but he came upon the islands of the Carribean, that is why he named them West Indies (and the native people Indians). He thought that Cuba was China. Later he explo…red the coasts of Central America. ( Full Answer )
He got it because he would make money and he thought he would be a hero
Christopher Columbus NEVER set foot in India. He believed that he could sail the Atlantic Ocean to East Asia to find a trade route to India because trade through Turkey (Ottoman Empire) was difficult and expensive for western European countries. King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella of Spain financed hi…s trip. However instead of landing in India he came ashore in "The New World," the American Continents. He mistakenly called the natives of the island he landed on "indians" because he assumed he was in Asia/Inda. ( Full Answer )

Christopher Columbus was an Italian explorer and navigator. He was looking for a route to India to help facilitate easier trading. He discovered America.
The trade routes from Europe east to China were difficult, dangerous, and costly.

While trying to do that he landed in the Caribbean and began exploring what he thought were i…slands off the east coast of China. ( Full Answer )
Partially, originally he was trying to find a route to India where all of the very valuable spices were but he ended up discovering a whole new continent instead, which back then how much land a country had was very important.
