Juan Sebastian Elcano was a Spanish explorer who served as a naval commander of Charles 1 of Spain & took part in the expedition to the Philippines. He participated in fierce mutiny against Magelian before the Armada discovered the passage through South America, the "STRAIT OF MAGELIAN. He was spared by Magellan and after five months of hard labour in chains was made captain of the Galleon a large, multi-decked ship. He was monumental in the survival of men that went out on an expedition and came back alive after crossing the Indian & Atlantic Ocean!
