Achievments

Amerigo was said to have discovered America and it is named after him to! but since the continents had girls names so they had to make it feminine so they got America! Amerigo made many voyages back to the Americas and even set up some trades.

Impact on the world

Amerigo had a huge impact on the world, without him first of all, a not so important thing, the continents would not be named America!

He studied many indians and traveled to America
