Ferdinand Magellan

The Life of Ferdinand

I was born in Portugal. My parents were members of the Portuguese nobility. After my parents death I became a page for the Queen at age 10. He went to school at the Queens Leonoras School of Pages in Lisbon. I studied cartography, astronomy, and celestial navigation. Which helped me in my later life. When I was in my mid-20's I found myself joining a Portuguese fleet that was headed for East Africa.
