Hernando Colón devoted the last years of his life to elaborate the biography of his father and the history of his travels. The History of Admiral Christopher Columbus was not published during Hernando Colón’s lifetime. The manuscript passed to María de Toledo, his sister-in-law, the wife of Diego Colón.
Later Luis Colón (son of Diego) gave it to the Genoese Baliano de Fornari. This took him to Venice, where it was printed in 1571, with the title of Historie del S. D. Fernando Colombo; nelle s’ha particolare et vere relatione della vita e de fatti dell’Almiraglio D. Christoforo Colombo suo padr e.
The delay in its publication was probably due to the strong criticism he poured towards the Spaniards who participated in the expeditions of conquest after his father’s trip.
The History of Admiral Christopher Columbus contains a detailed account of Columbus’ expeditions and the discovery of America. However, his main interest lies in the geographical and anthropological information he provides about the American lands, extracted from the admiral’s own writings.
The authenticity of this biography of Christopher Columbus is controversial. Some historians defend the authorship of Hernando and consider his historical inaccuracies the result of the translator’s mistakes or mistakes. Others even believe that it was not written by Hernando Colón.
