Amerigo Vespucci
Birth: Mar. 9, 1454
Florence
Provincia di Firenze
Toscana, Italy
Death: Feb. 22, 1512
Andalucia, Spain

Explorer. Born in Florence, Italy, he was a skilled navigator and one of the early explorers of the New World. In 1497, as a trade ship pilot he was very interested in finding a quicker way to sail to Asia. He went on four voyages 1497 to 1504, to Central and South America, including Venezuela and Brazil. He was also known by the name of Americus, thus the continents of North and South America were named in his honor. After his explorations, he returned to Seville, Italy and became its Master Navigator until his death. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
