Ferdinand Magellan

Magellan was born in 1480 in Portugal. He asked the king of Spain if he could have a boat and some money to discover a new trade route to India. So Spain gave Magellan a boat. He sailed west around the world to get to India. Magellan was able to reach the Phillipines. He was so close to India but he was killed in a battle by a tribal chief.
