Storyboard Text

  • Although there were people already there
  • I am most commonly known for the first discovery of finding the new world of the Americas
  • My voyage started in August, 1492 with three ships the Niña, the Pinta, and the Santa María with 87 men.
  • We headed west from Spain across the Atlantic ocean and sighted land on October 12. I had underestimated the size of the world and though this was Asia.
  • Eventually in 1493 i sailed back to Europe bringing back tobacco, turkey and some new spices.
  • After the first voyage i made three more similar ones to establish colonies in the Americas with my last being in 1502
  • Sadly i died in prison not knowing that i didn't make it to Asia.
  • 1502 i demostrated that brazil and the west indies did not match the Asia's eastern outskirts.
  • So i suggested there was an entirely new landmass which i named the 'Americas'
  • It is said that Vespucci had made four different voyages but only the second and third can be confirmed.
  • The date of my 'first' voyage was from May 1497 And the date of my 'Fourth' was from 1503 to 1504.
  • Soon after my return back to spain I became a spannish citizen and n March 22, 1508 I was made the pilot major of Spain by Ferdinand II of Aragon in honour of his discoveries.
  • I also ran a school for navigators in the Spanish House of Trade, based in Seville.
