Micronesia is a subregion of Oceania, comprising thousands of small islands in the western Pacific Ocean.
Micronesia began to be settled several millennia ago, although there are competing theories about the origin and arrival of the first settlers. The earliest known contact with Europeans occurred in 1521, when Ferdinand Magellan reached the Marianas. The coinage of the term “Micronesia” is usually attributed to Jules Dumont d’Urville’s usage in 1832, however Domeny de Rienzi had used the term a year previously.
