Pedro IV of the Castilian Burgundy dynasty was born in 1427 as the son of Pedro III and his wife. After the early death of his father, he became king of Castile and Portugal at the age of only eight years.
When the infamous Sacco di Roma happened in 1466, many people from Castile-Portugal went there to fight for the pope; although Pedro also sent some troops, he didn't declare war on the Rum-Seljuks, which many sides criticized. The king only succeeded in making the eastern parts of the Papal States the new Duchy/Protectorate of the Marches, theoretically still under the pope, de facto under the Duke of Alba (Castile).
1492 (SCNR), a Castilian expedition (well, it was funded by the king, and some of his people are on the ship, but since the Portuguese insisted, the captain and all the sailors were Portuguese - Castilians weren't allowed to build caravels) crossed the Atlantic, made landfall in Florida, claimed it for Castile-Portugal. It is safe to say, however, that the old king didn't participate much on this decision.
