    Vasco da Gama: 1488, from Portugal, sailed around Africa to India (King John II of Portugal)

    Cortes: 1519-1521, from Spain, invaded Mexico, conquered the Inca Empire (Charles V, king of Castile and Holy Roman Emperor)

    Pizzaro: 1532, from Spain, conquered the Inca Empire (King Ferdinand II of Spain)

    LOL Rae, the Indians (native Americans) discovered that those sticks that Columbus's men were carrying hur like the dickens when they made fire. they discovered that the blankets made them sick and die. that the Europeans had a sickness that made them crave Gold and Silver. that the Europeans had NO respect for the Earth, and seemed to feel that the Earth was theirs for the taking rather than something to be loved and tenderly cared for.
