The intent of the first three expeditionsnamely, those of Jiménez, Federmann, and Belalcázarwas more exploratory than colonizing; they were to find something whose existence they suspected and then gain Page 6 control of it. The other three ventures, led by Lebrón, Montalvo de Lugo, and Luis de Lugo, would settle an area already explored. The first three expeditions require an individual study of their antecedents to determine their purposes, that is, what they were looking for. Such analysis is not necessary for the other three since their purpose was clear from the outset; that is, they sought to colonize only what had been found already.

The gold collected, so necessary to pay the sums owed to the waiting shipowner as well as other impending obligations, instead was taken in secrecy by Alonso to the Canaries. Thus, he was accused of having robbed not only the conquerors that collected it, but also his father, who denounced him to the authorities. There exists the possibility, however, that Don Pedro was aware of his son's secret trip. 15 Who knows what other more pressing needs the Lugos had on the other side of the Atlantic? The adelantado of the Canary Islands, governor of Tenerife and La Palma, and now adelantado, governor, and captain general of the province of Santa Marta must have had powerful reasons to prefer, at sixty years of age, the wild and alien life in the Indies over his comfortable situation in the islands.

Belalcázar's expedition was complemented by another group, led by Juan Cabrera, which arrived in the New Kingdom a year and a half later; Luis de Lugo's was preceded by a party he sent ahead, under the leadership of Alonso Suárez, about one year before he left Spain. The area taken from the Indians by the conquerors and settled included the Muisca heartland and its surroundings. It was equivalent to what the royal cosmographer Juan López de Velasco, in 1570, called the provincia of the New Kingdom, to differentiate it from the distrito of the Royal Audiencia of the New Kingdom of Granada that included its province, and those of Santa Marta, Cartagena, Río de San Juan, and Popayán.
