MAGELLAN’S VOYAGE

By Matthew Brown  |  4.12.19

The voyage was about trade to the Far East.  The Portuguese owned all routes that went east around the Horn of Africa. Ferdinand Magellan’s mission was to find a route to the East Indies by going west, around the Americas.

Because he himself was Portuguese, Magellan was held in suspicion by the Spanish crown, even though it financed his voyage. Instead of his chosen Portuguese sailors, he was given instead a heavily Spanish crew for his five ships.
