a Spanish conquistador, soldier and explorer, and the first adelantado of New Andalusia. In 1529, he offered to explore South America at his own expense and establish colonies. Thanks to the efforts of his mother MarĂ­a de Mendoza, in 1534 his offer was accepted: he was made adelantado governor, captain general, and chief justice over New Andalusia. This grant allowed him authority over as much land as he could conquer, within 200 leagues of the southern limit of New Toledo.
