    (March 9, 1454-February 22, 1512)
    Namesake of America
    Genoese merchant and trader
    Director of a profitable Spanish shipping company
    Allegedly made four voyages to the eastern coastline of South America (circa 1497-1504)
    Mapped 3,300 miles of new Portuguese territory in present-day Brazil
    Disproved Christopher Columbus' claim that he landed in India
    Little reliable information is available on his life.
    He was extremely wealthy, growing up in a huge mansion.
    Historians question how many times he actually sailed to the Americas.
    He stated that he captained all four voyages, when in fact he only led one of them.
    He may have been a complete fake and fraud.
    He had nothing to do with the pop group America except inspiring their name.
    He was well educated in mathematics, map making and the sciences.
    He was the first to claim that Columbus discoveries were brand new continents.
    He helped to finance Columbus' third voyage.
    Unlike many other explorers of his day, it appears he was friendly to the Native Americans he met.
    America is named after him.
