On May 30, 1498, Columbus (1451-1506) left Cadiz for his third voyage with six ships and 300 men. After a brief stop in the Canaries, at La Gomera, the ships split up: three continued on the now known route to the Antilles (West Indies); the others, led by Columbus, headed toward the Cape Verde islands, turned west, and reached the island of Trinidad on July 31. Columbus then explored the Gulf of Paria, the eastern coast of present-day Venezuela, and the delta of the Orinoco. However, he believed that all the lands he had reached were islands. On August 11, the fleet arrived at Hispaniola, where Bartolomew Columbus (ca. 1460-1514) had, in the meantime, founded the city of Santo Domingo. Clashes between settlers, along with Columbus's demands, caused the Spanish monarchs to send a new inspection mission. Columbus and his two brothers were arrested and brought back to Spain in October 1500. Columbus was later released but forced to give up the title of governor of the islands and mainland.
