Ferdinand Magellan

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

A Portuguese sea explorer who sailed for both Portugal and Spain. He was the first to sail from Europe westwards to Asia, the first European to sail the Pacific Ocean, and the first to lead an expedition for the purpose of circumnavigating the globe. Though Magellan is often credited with being the first to circle the globe, he himself died in the Philippines and never returned to Europe.
