• King Charles I of Spain contracted Ferdinand Magellan, to find a westward route to the Spice Islands for Spain. Magellan’s expedition left in 1519 and was the first to cross from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean. Magellan did not complete the entire journey; he was killed in the Philippines. Juan Sebastian Elcano led the rest of the expedition, arriving back in Spain by 1522. Only 18 of the original 237 men completed the entire voyage.
