“I have not come here for such reasons, I have come to take away their gold.” That is some words Francisco Pizarro said from the past. Francisco Pizarro was known as one of the most successful conquerors in Spain. I will be discussing Francisco Pizarro's whole life, career, contributions, and what life would be like without Francisco Pizarro. Francisco Pizarro was born in Trujillo, Spain around 1474. He was born an illegitimate child.
He was the illegitimate son of infantry Colonel Gonzalo Pizarro, who was served in Navarre and the Italian campaigns and his mother is Francisca Gonzalez, who was a poor woman and she married late and had a son who is Francisco Martin de Alcantara. How his childhood plays a role in his achievement: Francisco Pizarro was uneducated and grew up illiterate. I think that the reason behind that is that he did not grow in a family like the others. Based on that he becomes a shepherd to live because his parents were not beside him. There was something missing in his childhood
Growing up Fransico was illiterate, he spent his time herding his father's pigs and when the tales of the new world came along he became captivated by the opportunity for succes, fortune, and exploration. He . When Pizarro was a young man he heard stories of the Americas and was captivated by a want of adventure a riches. His first expedition was in the year 1510, when he and spanish explorer Alonzo de Ojeda went on a journey to Columbia, the mission had an unsuccessful ending however it proved the trustworthiness of Pizarro. It was these actions in Francisco Pizarro's earl that will later determine the accomplishments in his future

Based on that he becomes a shepherd to live because his parents were not beside him. There was something missing in his childhood that impact his personality, something like feeling and emotions.
His achievements were so impressive, like his explorations, that today he is looked at and known for the great things he had discovered and done. Francisco Pizarro had not gotten where he was without trying. He had to work his way up and learn lots of new things in order to get where he had been. Francisco first started out as what was an ordinary farmer, for his times, and was not satisfied. He had a desire for joining the army, so he did.
Francisco Pizarro was a Spanish explorer who conquered many places and gained land for Spain. He went on numerous explorations where he founded Peru and its city state. Pizarro was an explorer who was historically important because he was on two explorations that were not led by him, although he was a participant in discovering the Pacific Ocean and the city of San Sebastian, he joined the expedition of Nunez de Balboa where they discovered the Pacific Ocean in 1513, and he founded Peru and took over the Incan people Peru and took their leader hostage. These reasons show that Pizarro was historically important, even if citizens of Spain and the Incan citizens thought he was greedy and rude, he still showed importance from his discoveries. Francisco Pizarro was on two explorations as a participant in the discovery of the Pacific Ocean and founding the city of San Sebastian, also known as “Holy Savior”.
Jose Rizal: Not Only a Genius On June 19 1861, history was born. The highly cultured and accomplished woman Donya Teodora Alonzo y Quintos Mercado of Meisic, Sta. Cruz, Manila delivered a child named Jose in the town of Calamba, Laguna. Jose’s father, Francisco Mercado Rizal, was an industrious farmer whom came from Biñan, Laguna. On the day that Jose was sent out to world, something special was been observed from him.
History tells us that Dr. Jose Rizal became the Philippine national hero as he fought for freedom using a pen as a sword. Rizal is well-known for his two novels, Noli Me Tangere and El Filibusterismo. Unlike other national heroes who fought aggressively and through violent means, Rizal believed that independence could be achieved peacefully. All Filipinos and even non-Filipinos who study the history of the Philippines know Rizal’s heroism primarily because of his martyrdom. Through many years and generations, historians, scholars, professors and students scrutinize and study almost every aspect of Rizal’s short but meaningful life and his vital part in history.
How will the society and the nation as a whole (i.e., the Philippines) benefit from the researches and studies in history? The Importance of Philippine History Subject by: Maribeth Q. Galindo (July 28, 2008) Often times, my students in Philippine history ask…”Ma’am, is the teaching of Philippine history subject still relevant in our course? Past is past, we could not change it. We could not give back the lives lost nor use the names of our hero’s, such as Jose Rizal, Emilio Aguinaldo, Andres Bonifacio and others as references when we apply for a job. If we do use their names, definitely, we will not be hired.
