Amerigo Vespucci
Amerigo Vespucci is an Italian businessman, explorer and navigator born from the Republic of Florence, named after the person with the term "America". He became a Castilian citizen in 1505. Between 1497 and 1504, Vespucci made at least two Discovery Era voyages, first on behalf of Spain and then on behalf of Portugal. In 1503 and 1505, two pamphlets were published under his name, containing colorful descriptions of these supposed expeditions and voyages. Both publications are extremely popular and widely read in most European countries. While historians were still debating the copyright and authenticity of these stories, at the time they were a tool to raise awareness of new discoveries and increase notoriety for these stories.

Vespucci claims to have understood, in 1501 during his Portuguese expedition, that Brazil was part of a new continent for Europeans, which he called the New World.
