In 1540, the King of Spain sent Francisco Coronado to America to get wealth and power and also Francisco went there for glory and also the wealth.
The year Francisco Coronado explored was to the years of 1540, to 1542.
The reason why Francisco Coronado explored was because he was told to, and also cause they wanted power and riches.
Francisco's claim to fame was to reach the 7 cities of gold witch he try to find cause a boy told him this story so he try to find it but couldn’t so he went back to the village and killed the boy.
A couple of interesting facts was that in my opinion he was mean and selfish and also he killed a boy for telling him a story that wasn’t true.
