History of Lanzarote
Lanzarote may have been named after a Genoese sailor called Lancelotto, who landed on the island in 1312. Or some say that it was down to the Norman knight Jean de Bethencourt who broke his lance on arriving on the island and declared “Lanza rota”, meaning broken lance. Alternatively, it could be due to the French nobleman, Lancelot, who came tot he island on one of Bethencourt’s expeditions.
The most important expedition in the history of Lanzarote was ordered by King Alfonso IV of Portugal. The sailors on this expedition counted 13 islands in the Canaries. There were 7 major islands: Tenerife, Lanzarote, Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria, La Gomera, El Hierro and La Palma. Then they also counted 6 minor islands: Alegranza, Montana Clara, La Graciosa, Roque del Oeste, Roque de Este and Lobos. The sailors were greeted by the local Guanches graciously, but sadly in the years to follow there were many private raids.
