Transcript of Ferdinand Magellan
A brave, kind, noble and strong-hearted European explorer!!!
Though Magellan died before the voyage was completed, he is often credited with the first circumnavigation of the earth as he initially led the voyage. He also discovered what is now called the Strait of Magellan, named the Pacific Ocean, and South America's Tierra del Fuego. Magellanic Clouds in space were also named for him, as his crew was the first to view them while sailing in the Southern Hemisphere.
Ferdinand Magellan was really brave. I think that he shouldn't have died the way he did. He did alot of things to help the first nations and many Europeans. It isn't fair that he died due to the fact that he was misunderstood.

The Importance of His Exploration!
Ferdinand Magellan was born in 1480 in Sabrosa, Portugal to Rui de Magalhaes and Alda de Mesquita. Because his family had bonds to the royal family, Magellan became a page to the Portuguese queen after his parents' untimely deaths in 1490. This allowed him the opportunity to become educated and learn about the various Portuguese exploration expeditions- possibly even those conducted by Christopher Columbus.
Ferdinand Magellan was the first European explorer to ever circumnavigate the world. That means he was the first to ever sail all around the world.On March 28, they landed in the Philippines and befriended a tribal king, Rajah Humabon of Cebu Island. After spending time with the king, Magellan and his crew were persuaded into helping the tribe kill their enemy Lapu-Lapu on Mactan Island. On April 21, 1521, Magellan took part in the Battle of Mactan and was killed by Lapu-Lapu's army.
Most important to geography though, was Magellan’s realization of the full extent of the earth- something that significantly aided in the development of later geographic exploration and the resulting knowledge of the world today.
The natives in Homonhon Island where Ferdinand Magellan and his men first landed where used to seeing strangers. Ferdinand Magellan and his men were met pleasantly and given a taste of Philippine hospitality-food in large amounts. They were also welcome in Cebu, which was ruled by Datu Humabon. Datu Humabon and his family were the first native that change to Roman Catholicism.
However, Datu Lapu-Lapu, the chief of Mactan Island, did not welcome Ferdinand Magellan and his men when he came to know of their strategy of changing natives to Roman Catholicism first so it would be easy to eventually control them politically. Datu Lapu-Lapu and his men met Ferdinand Magellan and his men with arrows and spears when they came to Mactan Island. Ferdinand Magellan died in this fight, popularly known as the Battle of Mactan. The rest of his men retreated.
Some of his accomplishments are trading spice with the first nations and leading the first expedition around the whole world. The only few first nations that were actually impacted by the arrival of Ferdinand were Datu Lapu-Lapu and his army. The rest of the first nations were used to new people so it didn't bother them much.
