Amerigo Vespucci
He was famous for getting north and south America named after him.

He was born in Italy on March 9,1454 he died in February 22, 1512 from malaria in Seville Spain.

My four facts are:

His father was named Nastagio Vespucci. He sailed with a guy named Florentine Gianetto Berardi. Vespucci and Columbus were good friends. He also played a major part in exploring New World. He was a Italian navigator
His Education University of Pisa.
His three ships names were San Antiago, Repertaga Wegiz and Girmand.
Vespucci claimed that he was the captain of all of his voyages but he was only a navigator.
After his death in 1512 his scholars began to wonder about his discoveries.
Famous quote:
They live together without king, without government and each of own master.... Beyond the fact that they have no church, no religion and are not Idolaters, what more can I say? They live according to nature, and may be called Epicureans rather than stoics.
He was the 3rd son.
