The New World is one of the names used for the majority of Earth's Western Hemisphere, specifically the Americas (including nearby islands). In 1492, Christopher Columbus, supported by the Spanish government, undertook a voyage to find a new route to Asia and inadvertently encountered “new” lands in the Americas full of long established communities and cultures.

Other European countries quickly followed suit and began to explore and invade the New World. Jacques Cartier undertook a voyage to present-day Canada for the French government, where they began the settlement of New France, developing the fur industry and fostering a more respectful relationship with many of the inhabitants.

The Spanish conquistadors invaded areas of Central and South America looking for riches, ultimately destroying the powerful Aztec and Inca cultures. The course of New World explorations was deeply affected by the invaders’ interactions with indigenous groups—interactions that, through a combination of violence and disease, resulted in massive declines in indigenous populations.

This name is of very early origin, for Ferdinand inscribed on the tomb of Columbus, “To Castile and to Leon Columbus gave a new world.” The Americas were also referred to as the "fourth part of the world". The term originated in the early 16th century after Europeans made landfall in what would later be called the Americas in the Age of Discovery.

This period of history lead to the expansion of the geographical horizon of classical geographers, who had thought of the world as consisting of Africa, Europe, and Asia, collectively now referred to as the Old World (a.k.a. Afro-Eurasia). The phrase gained prominence after the publication of a pamphlet titled Mundus Novus attributed to Italian explorer Amerigo Vespucci. This process culminated with the complete mapping and exploration of the planet as we see today.
