FC: Amerigo Vespucci's & prince henry's dreams by Kara Kohler

The exact date of his death is unknown. | As a young boy he loved to learn, and often dreamed about becoming a mapmaker. Soon afterward, his dreams came true. Before he died at age 57, he demonstrated that Asia was not a new world but a new continent.

2: As a young boy he was sent to explore the coasts of South America. Originally he was a mapmaker, but soon realized that Columbus had discovered a new land, launching his career as an explorer.

3: Prince Henry the Navigator was born in Portugal around 1394-1397. The exact date of his birth is unknown.

4: Henry opened a prestigious navigation school for the best ship captains, cartographers, and ship designers. Henry sent over 5 ships, which were all unsuccessful.
