Final Answer

In the 15th century Christopher Columbus, who was well-read in geographical and theological literature and had extensive maritime experience, believed he could steer a westward course across the Atlantic to Asia. Failing to gain support for his project in Portugal, he decided to move to Spain, where politically favourable circumstances and good fortune led the Catholic monarchs, Isabella of Castile and Ferdinand of Aragon, to approve the venture.

Columbus set forth commanding three small ships, and after a long drawn-out journey landed on the coast of a Caribbean island. Thus commenced the Spanish conquest of America.
