The second voyage of Columbus (1451-1506) raised great expectations. The admiral sailed from Cadiz on September 25, 1493, with 17 ships and 1,200 men, including his son Diego, his brother Giacomo, and the father of Friar Bartolomé de las Casas (1484-1566). On November 3, the fleet reached the Antilles and sailed through the archipelago to Hispaniola, where Columbus discovered that all 39 of his men had been killed. In January, 12 ships returned to Spain carrying a small amount of gold, while Columbus continued to explore Hispaniola before returning to Cuba, which—he concluded—was a part of Asia. These explorations were the source for the map later drawn by Juan de la Cosa, the navigator and cartographer who owned the lost Santa Maria. In September 1494, Columbus fell ill and handed over all his powers as governor of the new lands to his brother Bartholomew. A group of mutineers returned to Spain with three caravels, while conflicts broke out with the native population over the control of resources and territory. The Spanish monarchs sent out an inspector in October 1495. A few months later, in spring 1496, Columbus decided to return to Spain with the only surviving caravel, the Niña, and a ship built on the island for the homeward journey. He arrived in Cadiz on June 11, 1496.
