Christopher Columbus wanted to travel to the indies. He believed that he would reach theirs quickly by traveling to the west. He went to ask for help to get money for a voyage from the King of Portugal and France but they denied. Suddenly in 1492, the king and queen of Spain agreed to help him. Christopher Columbus has achieved three ships the Nina, the Pinta, and the Santa Maria.
