he said that he would bring gold and spices from the new world. King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella (espically the queen) wanted to spread Christianity. Before Christopher Columbus's first expedition to the New World, the Islamic people had just been completely driven out. The queen wanted millions of other people to be saved and accept Christianity and Jesus Christ.
