Horatio Humboldt in "History of Liberty City"

Horatio Humboldt was an English explorer in Grand Theft Auto IV. He is based on the real life person Henry Hudson. Humboldt was hired by the Dutch to find a new place to sell weed. On September 4, 1609, he steered his ship into the mouth of a river coincidentally named the Humboldt by the local natives, based on Humboldt's writings. He is mentioned on CNT's show A History of Liberty City.


  • Humboldt's name is presumably based on Alexander von Humboldt, a German naturalist and explorer after whom many geographical features were named.
  • Humboldt claims that the natives have already named the river he finds the "Humboldt", although this might be a lie to justify his naming of the river after himself.
