Columbus comes across as deeply religious, strategic, and politically ambitious. Firstly, Columbus comes across as deeply religious based on the way he acknowledges God for bestowing on him myriad journey mercies that led to a successful voyage. Additionally, since he knew Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand II had strong ties with the Catholic Church, Columbus tactfully introduced the idea that the numerous native peoples he had found constituted a prime ground for Christian conversion and expanding the monarchy’s political jurisdiction. Secondly, Columbus is highly strategic, starting with the way he throws in political and religious ideas to the Spanish rulers, trying to demonstrate that the Indies were ready for conquering by Europeans.

Now Jean Marzollo may say that ‘Columbus was brave, and he was bright.’
People have very different opinions on Christopher Columbus. My opinion is he was a very greedy man, the only thing he cared about was money. He would do anything possible to get it, even if he was already rich he would want more and more. Some things he did was took 10% of any riches in a land he might discover. Also, he didn't care whose flag he was sailing under, he only cared about getting the money.
