Did You Know?
According to the song about a Viking chief discovering the Americas, the other Vikings didn't believe his stories, with Columbus many centuries later wondering if the story might be true after all and taking credit for the discovery. In truth, the Vikings did try to settle in North America, but finally their colony was given up. Since their discovery wasn't written down in historical records, it was forgotten and Columbus never learned of it. Columbus wasn't even trying to discover the Americas, since he didn't know they existed. Instead, he hoped to travel to Asia westwards. See more
