Francisco Vásquez de Coronado is a popular Spanish explorer who had led expeditions across North America.
He was born in Spain in the year 1510 . He was born into a noble family and had lived in Spain his whole life. At the age of 25 he had left Spain and had inherited a large portion of estates in New Spain which is now known as Mexico. He got married and had 8 children.
Coronado had set out leading his first expedition in 1540 and had set out from Compostela which is a big city in New Spain occupied by the Spanish. Coronado's expedition had about 400 European men at arms and around 1,500 native Mexican allies. He had set north words to word now known New Mexico, Arizona, and Texas.
Coronado had set out on the northern trail on April where his men started to starve and there was low water so they had to split up in smaller groups in search for water. They had found the Sonora river which they would now follow to make a good supply route. They had followed this for some distance.
They had come across Cíbola which is said to be the golden city which was one of there goals to find during the expedition. As they found Cíbola there was big disappointment that there was no golden city. Cíbola was occupied by the Zuni Indians who had refused for Coronado to let in to the city so in late 1510 he had concurred Cíbola where he was injured which had halted the expedition.
After the Conquest of Cíbola the Cornado led his expedition up the Colorado river as he was in search for Quivira which is suppose to be a very wealthy city led by tribes of the Plains Indians. Cornado's expedition had left the Colorado River in search for Quivira were he had come across trbes telling him that he was going the wrong way and should head east wards. They told him to head north. Cornado was miss lead by previous tribes as they were probably wanting them to get lost in the wilderness. As he was searching for Quivira he sent most of his expedition back to New Mexico because confidence was low. As he found Quivira he had found about 20 settlements living there. He was again disappointed that the only wealth was copper. All that there was were corn, beans, and squash which was not what Coronado wanted to see.
Coronado had finished his expedition because he was badly injured after falling off his horse. He had travelled back to New Mexico leaving behind two friars. The whole expedition was considered a failure. He has in heavy debt when he had returned to Mexico City. He died from infectious disease on the 22, September 1554.
