John Cabot (Italian: Giovanni Caboto, Venetian: Zuan Chabotto; c. 1450 – c. 1499) was an Italian explorer and navigator.
In 1497, Cabot was commissioned by Henry VII of England to establish a trade route to the Indies and China. Cabot documented the Gulf of Saint Lawrence during his expedition, which is commonly held to have been the first European encounter with North America since the Viking discovery of Vinland in the eleventh century.
