Francisco Vasquez De Coronado
      
Was the First European to Explore North America's Southwest
(1510-1554) Ruthless governor of New Galicia, Mexico, he searched fruitlessly for treasure in fabled seven Golden Cities of Cibola. He traveled through what is now northern Mexico, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas. He killed many native Americans who refused to convert to Christianity and his expedition was viewed a failure by Spain.
