Cabot himself was an Italian. However, he sailed under the commission of Henry VII of England. He was first European who reached North-American coast since the times of Leif Erikson. Exact location of his landing is disputed. Historians have proposed present-day Newfoundland, Cape Breton Island, Labrador or Maine.
