Christopher Columbus

Christopher Columbus wanted to find a new, faster route to Asia, by sailing west instead of going around Africa. He had studied navigation and knew the world was round, not flat, which was what many believed in his day. He planned to return to Spain with spices and gold. This would bring riches to the Spanish Crown. He also planned to spread the Roman Catholic faith to the natives.
