    I guess it would've been more appropriate to do this trivia 4 days ago on Columbus Day but I just thought of it today. We all know Columbus wanted to find a route to Asia via a direct westward route across the Atlantic from Europe, but does anyone know for what reason he wanted wealth from Asia.

      I know the answer, but what would be the fun of getting it on the first post and not letting anyone else try?

          Because refrigeration did not exist. SO People invented ways to preserve their food. Columbus Day is the day for making Wine.

              This is just a guess, but I think he was hitting on Queen Isabella of Spain, and she was a high-maintenance broad.

                    I may be "mistooken", but I believe the spice trade was in full tilt.

                      Since people have guessed now I'll answer. Columbus wanted wealth to launch another crusade to the Middle East so he could retake Jerusalem, a crusade he believed the Bible prophesied about him leading.

                        Redhawk is correct. Columbus hoped to find a westward route to Asia so he could conquer that continent to fund a crusade to the Holy Land which he hoped to lead. Columbus was a devout Catholic who is said to have said the daily Catholic prayers and chants more than the average priest. Columbus presented the Spanish royalty his Book of Prophecies which was supposedly an interpretation of the Bible. His book said that the world would end in 1650 and that before that time he had to personally lead a crusade to liberate Jerusalem to fulfill the Biblical prophecy.

                              He wanted a route to increase trade so that it was easier to get items such as silk (which was a VERY popular item) to Europe without having to take the "silk road" which was a very dangerous path at that time.
