Christopher Columbus "Italian peasant wool-weaver" proven to be Historical Lie
New technologies like DNA and Forensic Science are derailing longstanding ideas about the discoverer of America. Saturday, October 9, Portuguese Academics will reveal solid proof of the historical lie of an "Italian Christopher Columbus.”
By: Association Cristovao Colon, Cuba, Portugal
Everything indicates that Columbus was not the peasant Italian after all but a noble Portuguese spy, secretly infiltrated into the Spanish court by Portugal’s King John II.
This lecture, promoted by the Association Cristovao Colon and by the City Hall of Portimao, presented at the Manuel Teixeira Gomes Library in Portimao (Portugal) will feature invited speakers Dr. Nuno Campos Inácio (Genealogia of Algarve), Dr. José de Matos Anastácio (Association Cristovao Colon) and Dr. Manuel Rosa (a Portuguese-American historian from the USA and an expert on Columbus History with three books published) who will present the results of his 20 years of investigation into the life of Christopher Columbus followed by a book signing session of the book "COLOMBO PORTUGUÊS-NOVAS REVELAÇÕES"
Manuel Rosa has also been invited to take part in an academic conference at the prestigious Sociedade de Geografia de Lisboa (Lisbon, Portugal) on October 11 where new Columbus findings will be presented and discussed.
On October 14 Mr. Rosa will be in Valladolid, Spain at the Casa Museo Colón, (Centro de Estudios de América of the University of Valladolid), where he will present "La Esposa de Colón -Comendadora de Santiago," [The Wife of Columbus-Comendadora of Santiago] following on the heels of the release of his new book in Spain titled "COLÓN. La Historia Nunca Contada," [Columbus. The Untold Story] (Esquilo - Ediciones y Multimedia, Badajoz, Spain, 2010).
A few months ago, on June 15, the Casa Museo Colón was host to Alfredo Pinheiro Marques, Portuguese historian, who presented "The Continuation of the Scientific Fraud of the ‘Portuguese Columbus’ in the Scope of the Unfortunate Situation of Portuguese Historiography in the Beginnings of the 21st Century" in a direct attack of the members of the Portuguese Association Cristovao Colon. On October 14 Manuel Rosa ( founding member of the Association Cristovao Colon) will be in the same Casa Museo Colón to reply to the charges and show exactly who is basing their history on facts and who bases themselves on fantasy. The Association Cristovao Colon is a non-profit organization created in 2008 with a mission to investigate and promote the scientific facts of the life of Christopher Columbus in order to expose the truth. Its members are devoted to show who is supporting fantasy, inventing history, using frauds and who is revealing the true fraud of Columbus history by showing facts and concrete scientific evidence.
The life of Christopher Columbus had remained shrouded in mystery up to now because the discoverer's name, Cristóbal Colón, was an alias used to trick the Spanish since the discoverer of America was in fact a James Bond-style secret agent for King John II of Portugal. According to Rosa, the explorer convinced Spain’s King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella to open a new route to a “false India” to safeguard the way for the Portuguese to round Africa and reach the real India, which Vasco da Gama did in 1498.
Since a rivalry existed between Castile and Portugal over the Atlantic trade routes, in 1483 Queen Isabella planned the attempted assassination of Portugal's John II with the aid of two highly placed Portuguese nobles, Marquis D. John of Braganza and Count D. Lopo de Albuquerque, nephews of Columbus.
This moved the Portuguese king to work out a conspiracy with the help of the future Admiral of the Indies, who infiltrated the court of Castile accompanying his traitorous nephews, a historical fact clearly detailed in Rosa's latest book “Colon: La Historia Nunca Contada.”
Among other details presented in the new book, a result of 20 years of scientific investigation, is:
- solid proof that the Last Will of Columbus dated 1498 is a forgery created 80 years after Columbus died
- that the ship Santa Maria never sank off the coast of Haiti but was instead dragged onto shore and shot with a cannonball through its sides to maroon the Spanish court's overseers so they could not contest the version of the facts given to the court upon Columbus's return
- that the New World was already known to exist prior to the First Voyage
- that Columbus's wife was a member of the chosen elite of Portugal unable to marry anyone without the King's permission
- and that Columbus knew before he left Spain where exactly where he was headed and the type of people he would encounter on the voyage. For this reason he took in his treading trunk nothing of any value such as glass beads, hats and hawk's bells, all things of no value that would be laughed at in the real India.
The secret mission even included a Portuguese spy on the Pinta who secretly carried cinnamon to give to Martin Pinzón saying he got it form a native who carried bunches of it. An outright lie since cinnamon was never found in the New World until this day.
Columbus, acting as a true 007 of his day, was not working alone in Spain and had a whole committee of underlings in Seville, all working for the King of Portugal, minutely detailed in this new book "COLÓN. La Historia Nunca Contada," [Columbus. The Untold Story]. "Columbus could not have been Italian because he never wrote a single letter in that language, all letters were in Spanish with Portuguese phrases, which shows that Portuguese was his first language. And in a letter to Ferdinand and Isabella Columbus called Portugal ‘the land of my birth." says Mr. Rosa
Many academics support the new research. Professor Antonio Vicente from the University of Lisbon, say that Rosa’s book is the “first to be written about Columbus without being influenced by previous accounts and which develops each hypothesis point by point.”
The weightiest commentary comes from Joaquim Verissimo Serrao, a Portuguese historian and recipient of the 1995 Asturias Prize for Social Sciences, who wrote the book’s prologue. “Rosa has woven a story about the discoverer of the New World, in a work of revision that deserves to be described as serious and diligent...he has given himself up completely to the greatest dream of his life. And that dream is the new biography of Cristopher Columbus,” Verissimo Serrao writes.
