The Italian navigator Amerigo Vespucci was one of the earliest explorers of the New World. The continents of North and South America are named in his honor. Vespucci was born into a noble family in Florence around 1451. While still a boy he became interested in navigation and geography. But he went to work in a bank, and in 1492 he was sent to Seville, Spain. Mere, as a bank official, he financed some of the early voyages to the New World, including Coumbus' second voyage in 1493. This contact with explorers made Vespucci decide that he would sail for unexplored lands himself. On the voyages he made in 1499 and 1501, Vespucci explored about 6,000 miles of the South American coastline. He made maps and wrote an account of what he saw. During he voyage of 1501 he first recognixed that what we now call South America was a continent not series of small islands as had been previously though. On this voyage he also devised a way t o determine the circumference of the earth at, the equator. His figures missed the actual distance by only 50 miles. In 1507 a German geographer and map-maker published Vespucci's letters and suggested hat the continent of South America be named a for him. His name was later given lo Norh America as well. In 1508 Vespucci was appointed pilot major, or chief navigator of Spain. He served in his 1 position until his death in Seville in 1512.
