Leif Eriksson (Icelandic Leifur Eiríksson ['lɛiːvʏr 'ɛi: riksɔn]; * circa 970 in Iceland; † circa 1020) was an Icelandic explorer. His nickname was 'the lucky'.
Leif Eriksson was presumably born circa 970 as the son of Erik the Red and his Wife Thjodhild. As the colonisation of Greenland began circa 986, it is assumed from the date of birth that the birth took place in Iceland.
