The Amazon was opened by conquistador Francisco de Orellana, the first of the Europeans to cross South America in its widest part. In the summer of 1542, his detachment allegedly saw a tribe of legendary Amazons and entered into battle with them. Today it is believed that these were either Native American women who fought alongside men, or simply long-haired Indians, whom the Spaniards mistook for women. Initially, de Aurellana wanted to name the river by his own name, but after the battle he settled on the Amazon.
