Ferdinand Magellan was a Portuguese explorer who in 1519 set sail to find a route to the Spice Islands. While on the expedition, Magellan discovered the Strait of Magellan… and was the first European to cross the Pacific Ocean.

Ferdinand Magellan was killed in the Battle of Mactan, Mactan Island, Cebu, Philippines, by a tribal chieftain named Datu Lapu-Lapu. A poisoned arrow hit him in the leg. A bam…boo spear got him in the arm. When he fell, the natives fell over him with their spears. The Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan was hit by a poisoned arrow and killed with spears.

Ferdinand Magellan almost made it all the wayaround the world, and is credited with being the first European tosee the Pacific Ocean , which he named. The Straits of Magella…n , just south of Tierradel Fuego at the southern tip of SouthAmerica , are named for him. While he was in that vicinity,he and his crew spotted a new bird, thought at first to be adifferent type of goose that had to be skinned, rather than plucked- it was a penguin- now named the Magellanicpenguin ( Spheniscus magellanicus) in his honor. Ferdinand Magellan is credited as making the first successful circumnavigation of the world. Actually, Magellan himself did not complete the sail around the world. He started in Spain, but was killed in what is now the Philippines before the voyage was completed. Nevertheless, Magellan had sailed east of the Philippines on an earlier voyage, so he was one of the first two individuals to have traveled all the way around the earth. The other individual was Magellan's indentured servant, Enrique, a native of Malacca. There is some dispute as to whether Magellan or Enrique was actually the first to sail around the world. The exact place of Enrique's birth is not known with certainty, nor is the exact time at which he returned to his place of birth. (He departed from Magellan's fleet during a battle, which he may have incited himself, and so there was no communication between Enrique and the survivors of Magellan's fleet after his departure.) 23rbtye5hr 4jkyd46,rjdrtfy

Ferdinand Magellan, ExplorerBorn: c. 1480Birthplace: Villa Real, PortugalDied: 27 April 1521 (killed in battle)Best Known As: The first guy to circumnavigate the Earth Portugu…ese name: Fernao de Magalhaes Magellan was born in Portugal, but it was under the Spanish flag that he sailed in 1519 with the intention of reaching the Spice Islands by sailing west around South America. After much hardship he succeeded in reaching and then sailing across the Pacific Ocean. Soon thereafter he was killed while trying to subdue the natives on what is now the island of Mactan in the Philippines. After still more hardships, one of his original five ships, Victoria, eventually made it back to Spain. Though Magellan didn't complete the entire circumnavigation, as the expedition's leader he is usually credited with being the first man to circle the globe. Above retrieved from Answers.com Viper1 He Captained the first circumnavigation of the earth.
At the tip of South America Magellan found a route from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean.
Magellan's expedition was the first to successfully sail around the whole world (although only 18 out of 257 managed to return, and Magellan himself got killed on the way), an…d quite a few places and animals they found were previously unknown to Europeans. Among other things, Magellan discovered the Strait of Magellan, which runs between the Atlantic and the Pacific near the southern tip of South America, and a species of penguin called the Magellanic Penguin. His expedition also established the need for the international date line, you could say he discovered that. Among things he did NOT discover - he found them early but was not the first European to do so - are: The Magellanic Clouds, a pair of galaxies: Described by Magellan's crew, but observed by a couple of Italians about 30 years earlier, and described by a Persian astronomer 500 years prior to that. The Pacific: Magellan's expedition were the first Europeans to enter the Pacific through the Strait of Magellan, but Spanish explorer Vasco Nuñez de Balboa had seen the Pacific a few years earlier, by land across Panama. The Philippines: Parts of the Philippines were already known to the Portuguese, and Arab traders had established commerce there centuries earlier. See related links.
