Christopher Columbus was an Italian explorer.  He is from Genoa, Italy located in northwestern Italy.  His dream was to sail west across the Atlantic ocean to Asia.  He believed that the earth was round and that there is more land than water.  For that reason, he believed that it would be a short voyage to the Indies.

He eventually received the money he needed from Spain to complete the voyage.  He left with three ships the Nina, the Pinta, and the Santa Maria.  On October 12, 1492 Columbus discovered the Bahamas.

If Bartholomew Dias, a Portuguese explorer, discovered America the name and language would be different.
