Why was Columbus offer turned down by Ferdinand and Isabella at first?

I for one think that he was turned down by the King and Queen at first because they did not believed that he could travel to Asia but then Columbus promised them that he would bring back riches for them from Asia, but he never did reach Asia in turn he reached what we believed was the "New World" because he did not know that North America would be in the way of sailing West to Asia. =)

What did Abraham Lincoln turn down when the King of Siam offered him a gift?

Elephants.In 1856, the King of Siam, his Majesty Somdetch Phra Paramendr Maha Mongut, had received a multitude of publications from Lincoln's predecessor, President James Buchanan, which indicated our government's approval of a ratification of a commercial treaty between Siam, and the US.In return, the King of Siam sent the President elect, then, President Lincoln a handsome sword in a gold scabbard inlaid with silver, a daguerreotype portrait of himself and his child, and a pair of elephant tusks. The gifts contained a letter thanking the "President elect", which also included a paragraph, which stated that the US had no elephants. The King explained that "elephants being animals of great size and strength [they] can bear burdens through uncleared woods and matted jungles where no carriage and cart roads have yet been made." He proposed sending a couple of pairs, and that they could be turned lose in the forests, and develop into a herd.President Lincoln was very flattered by the King's gifts, and additional offer of elephants, as gifts. He replied to the King of Siam that he personally could not acceptthe sword, the daguerreotype portrait of himself and his child, and a pair of elephant tusks, but would place the gifts in the Government archive's, to be displayed as tokens of mutual esteem. As for the elephants, he replied to the King with many thanks, but the present condition of the United States would not support herds of elephants, even for the benefit of industrial use. He explained to the King that "Steam" was more practical for our current condition.SHORTER ANSWER: fine hansome gold sward
