At a very young age, Magellan became a page to Queen Leonor. It would be a while before he would be able to go on an expedition.
THE STRAIT OF MAGELLAN!
Hmm... What shall I call this... I got it!
In early 1505, Magellan joined an expedition that sailed along the Indian and African coastlines to check for Muslim sea power. Magellan is said to have been wounded in a naval battle on this expedition.
Magellan was appointed captain to an expedition meant to seek an all-Spanish route to the Moluccas. Some people were outraged that Magellan was made captain, since Magellan had transfered allegiance from Portugal.
We've done it! We've arrived back in Spain! We circled the planet!
Starting from Spain, Magellan sailed westward, around South America, and discovered the Strait of Magellan.
Magellan sailed to the Philippines to gather provisions and secure a base, instead of heading directly to the Spice Islands. It was here that we was killed a few weeks later in a fight with people of Mactan Island.
Even though Magellan had died, his crew continued his journey, and completed the first circumnavigation of the globe. Ferdinand Magellan was credited as the man who led the expedition that circled around the Earth.
