Giovanni VerrazzanoIn the 1520s King Francis I of France sent Verrazzano to explore the East Coast of North America to find an easier route to Asia. The French wanted to control the passage (if there was one) because it would make them very rich and they could control the route to China and its jewels and spices. Unfortunately, after many years of exploration he did not find the route.
