Hernando de Soto

Hernando De Soto was born in Spain and explored for Spain

Hernando explored the Indies with Fransisco Pizzarro

This exploration helped Spain by conquering Peru, but needless to say, this didn't work out well for the natives.

He explored in the years 1514-1542. He had three voyages , the first one lasted a 2 years, the second one lasted a year , and the last one lasted from 1548 to his death
