After getting rejected from many other kings and queens Christopher Columbus goes to Queen Isabelle and King Ferdinand. He requests that they financially support him while he finds land for them. They both agree to that in return for goods and new land.
Columbus sets off, determined to find a route directly to Asia, hoping to be able to bring back gold and goods to Spain.
He reaches new land, thinking it's Asia, but really, he found the Americas.
