I don't think that's Columbus. Can anyone here identify the image? This is all I could find.

Yes. It's a landsknecht. That link is for an e-card site. What do they know of history?

I'm curious if anyone knows the specific woodcut (or whatever) the image comes from. It looks awfully familiar to me. I guess the landsknechte served Spain at times, so there's at least a bit of a connection with Columbus and Spanish imperialism.
