Victoria (ship)

The Victoria was one of the five ships of Ferdinand Magellan's expedition to the Spice Islands or Moluccas. It was named after the church of Santa María de la Victoria de Triana, where Magellan took an oath of allegiance to Charles of Spain.

She was the only ship to survive the expedition which circumnavigated the globe between 1519 and 1522. Only 18 of the 265 crew that the expedition started with survived the trip. Magellan himself had been killed in the Philippines.

The four ships that did not return were the following: the Trinidad (tonnage 110, crew 55), the San Antonio (tonnage 120, crew 60), the Concepción (tonnage 90, crew 45) and the Santiago (tonnage 75, crew 32). The Trinidad was Magellan's flagship.

Victoria was classified as carrack or nao (ship), as were all the others except Trinidad, which was a caravel.

Importance of achievement

On September 6, 1522, the Victoria returned to Sanlúcar de Barrameda, Spain, with Juan Sebastián Elcano and 17 survivors of Ferdinand Magellan's 265-man expedition, becoming the first ship to circumnavigate the globe. In proving that ships could sail around the planet, Magellan's expedition ended a long era in which men had lived in a constantly expanding world. One of the survivors was Antonio Pigafetta, whose journals provide most of what is known about the voyage around the world.
