From what historians have been able to gather about the early life of a man called Cristóbal Colón, many details of his life do not match Genoese documents about a Cristoforo Columbo born in 1451. There is evidence to show that Columbus was born earlier than 1451. For example, Andrés Bernáldez, a friend of Columbus and a historian, said that Columbus was “about 70” when he died in 1506. If that is true, Columbus was born in 1436.
