Biography Juan Sebastián Elcano (1486-1526) was a Spanish (Basque) mariner, guide and adventurer best associated with driving the second 50% of the first round-the-world route, having assumed control after the demise of Ferdinand Magellan. Upon his arrival to Spain, the King gave him an ensign that contained a globe and the expression: "You Went Around Me First."

Soldier and Merchant In his initial years, Elcano was a traveler, battling with the Spanish armed force in Algiers and Italy before settling down as commander/proprietor of a vendor ship. When he was compelled to surrender his boat to Italian organizations to which he possessed cash, he discovered he had overstepped Spanish law and needed to approach the King for an absolution. The KingCharles v. Youthful King Charles V concurred, however on the condition that the talented mariner and guide present with an endeavor the King was financing: the quest for another course to the Spice Islands, drove by Portuguese pilot Ferdinand Magellan.

The Magellan Expedition Elcano was given the position of boat\'s lord on board the Concepción , one of five boats making up the armada. Magellan trusted that the globe was littler than it really is, and that an easy route to the Spice Islands was conceivable by experiencing the New World. Flavors, for example, cinnamon and cloves were hugely important in Europe at the time and a shorter course would be justified regardless of a fortune to whoever discovered it. The armada set sail in September of 1519 and advanced toward Brazil.

To the Pacific Magellan lost two ships: the San Antonio came back to Spain (without consent) and the Santiago sank, albeit the greater part of the mariners were saved. At this point, Elcano was chief of the Concepción. In October-November of 1520 the armada investigated the islands and conduits at the southern tip of South America, in the long run finding an entry through that right up \'til today is known as the Strait of Magellan.

Across the Pacific According to Magellan\'s computations, the Spice Islands ought to just be a couple days\' sail away. He was severely mixed up: his boats took four months to cross the South Pacific. Conditions were hopeless on board and a few men kicked the bucket before the armada achieved Guam and the Marianas Islands. Proceeding with westbound, they achieved the present-day Philippines in mid 1521.

Death of Magellan In the Philippines, lamentably, Magellan was one of a few Europeans slaughtered in the resulting fight. Elcano was currently second in charge of the Victoria, under Juan Carvalho . They chose to annihilate the Concepción and head back to Spain in the two residual ships: the Trinidad and the Victoria.

Return to Spain Heading over the Indian Ocean, the two boats made a stop in Borneo before ending up at the Spice Islands, their unique objective. Stuffed with important flavors, the boats set out once more. About this time, Elcano supplanted Carvalho as commander of the Victoria. Trinidad soon sank and a number of the Trinidad\'s mariners were caught by the Portuguese. Elcano cruised the Victoria once more into Spain on September 6, 1522. The boat was manned by just 22 men:18 European survivors of the voyage and four Asians they had grabbed on the way.

Commemoration Elcano has sadly been for the most part overlooked by history, as Magellan still gets all the acknowledgment for the principal circumnavigation of the globe. Despite the fact that there is a statue to Elcano in the place where he grew up of Getaria, Spain and the Spanish naval force named a boat with his name.
