David Livingstone (March 19, 1813 – May 4, 1873) was a Scottish medical missionary with the London Missionary Society. He wanted to be a missionary, but he could not get many people to convert to Christian beliefs, so instead, he explored and charted most of Africa. He gave the Victoria Falls their name. He named them after his queen, Queen Victoria.
