Why did Spain send Francisco Pizarro to explore?
Well Spain was poor so they sent Pizarro to find new land. The Incas were rich people but very easy to defeat. So Francisco Pizarro went and conquered the Incas for their riches.
Spanish explorers in the New World did more than explore. Their mission as "conquistadors" were to battle & defeat Native Americans in order to control large parts of North & South America. The "conquistadors" were able to steal silver and gold and send these precious metals back to Spain. Two famous conquistadors were Cortes and Pizarro.
Francisco Pizarro is a spanish explorer who discorved that the incas had gold in the Acountries so he took his crew over there to take their gold and send it to his hometown. francisco pizzarro was a christian, and when he went to the Andean countries he tried to force the incan to become christians. the incan fought for their rights and finally the lost. francisco took atahuallpa(incan emperor) to be in-slaved. after a while…
Henry Tutor didn't explore, but Elizabeth 1 did send Drake to harass the Spanish and Drake did find San Francisco Bay as well as trying to keep the Spanish out of the Pacific and sacking their ships. Sir Walter Raleigh did establish the Roanoke colony off the coast of South Carolina. The English wanted a foothold in the new world to off set the Spanish colonies in Florida and the Southwest.
More than likely as the main goal was to get gold to send back to Spain and the indians were the only available not quite human (to the Spanish) labor force very little would have changes with the conversion of the natives to Christianity. Much the same as the Christian slaves in the American south were still property not people.
