Early life

Fransisco Coronado was born in 1510 in Salamanca, Spain.

For a career, Fransisco Cornado was a nobleman until he was sent out to explore.

He was also sponsored by Spain, and was sent out to find riches for Spain.

Coronado made a big impact for Spain, in which he found riches and new land for map makers, for they named Cornado heights after him. Cornado died in September 22, 1554, because of an infectious disease, but the disease is unknown.
