De Soto, a Spanish explorer, heped to defeat the Inca empire and led the first European expedition to reach the Mississippi River. From 1539 to 1542, he led a large Spanish expedition through what is now the southern United States. He became known as a courageous explorer who helped conquer the New World for Spain.

His tales of the fabled Seven Cities of Cibola led to the famous expedition of Francisco Coronado in 1540. In 1527, both Dorantes and Estevanico joined Narvaez' expedition to conquer Florida. Estevanico was excellent at learning the languages of the various Indian groups. Three years after completing the journey with Cabeza de Vaca in February 1539, Estevanico agreed to lead an expedition north into New Mexico to prepare the way for Coronado, who was considering going to look for the "Seven Golden Cities of Cibola."
