Circumnavigation of Globe

Magellan didn’t circumnavigate the globe. Magellan only made it to the Philippines, where he started a battle and was killed by natives. It was one of his Captains, Juan Sebastián Elcano (1476 – 1526), who actually completed the journey, yet historically has not received credit for his journey.
