Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Ioánnis Fokás, better known by the Spanish transcription of his name, Juan de Fuca (born 1536 on the Ionian island of Cefalonia died there 1602 ), was a Greek maritime pilot in the service of the king of Spain, Philip II. He is best known for his claim to have explored the Strait of Anián, now known as the Strait of Juan de Fuca, between Vancouver Island, now part of British Columbia, Canada and northwestern Washington state, United States. Fokás's grandfather, Emmanouíl Fokás , fled Constantinople at its fall in 1453, accompanied by his brother Andrónikos. The two settled first in the Peloponnese where Andrónikos remained, but in 1470 Emmanouíl moved to the island of Cefallonia. Iákovos , Ioánnis's father, established himself in the village of Valeriáno ) on the island, and came to be known as "the Valeriáno Fokás" to distinguish him from his brothers.
