Map of Magellans round the world voyage, 1519-1521. Artist: Unknown
Map of Magellan's round the world voyage, 1519-1521. A Portuguese-born navigator sponsored by Spain, Ferdinand Magellan (c1480-1521) led the expedition that made the first circumnavigation of the globe. This Mercator projection map shows the route taken, which included the first passage through the straits at the southern tip of South America that bear Magellan's name. Magellan did not himself complete the voyage, as he was killed in the Philippines in a clash with natives. Of the five ships that set out from Spain in 1519, only one, the Victoria, commanded by Juan de Elcano, returned safely. From the Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris.
