Meet Ferdinand Magellan, the swashbuckling 16th-century explorer who masterminded the first-ever voyage to sail round the world and 'discovered' many new lands (even though loads of people already lived there!).

Find out: Why he was hated by royals and sailors alike; Why he made one of his sailors dance with a giant; How he was saved by a pot of jam!
