Discovery of America

Cristobal Colon (Christopher Columbus) is credited with the discovery of America; although the Italian, who thought he was a Spaniard, didn't realise there was another continent there at all.

Thinking he was in the Indies, it was Amerigo Vespucci who later realised that they had discovered a continent.
