A VERDADE NUNCA REVELADA SOBRE CRISTÓVÃO COLOMBO 
 “Colombo Mistério Resolvido”, a obra do historiador e investigador português Manuel Rosa, provavelmente o maior especialista internacional sobre a temática Cristóvão Colombo, vencedora do Prémio “Independent Press Award in World History – 2017”, nos Estados Unidos da América, será finalmente editada e apresentada em Portugal. A obra apresenta as mais recentes conclusões de uma investigação profunda, que o autor iniciou em 1991, apresentando documentos nunca antes analisados, que vão desde testes de ADN até cartas assinadas por Cristóvão Colombo e seus familiares directos, que afastam definitivamente a possibilidade de Colombo ser Genovês. Mas o autor vai mais longe, comparando a heráldica usada por Colombo e seus descendentes, comparando-a com outros brasões antigos, mas também fazendo a evolução dos mesmos através da descendência do navegador (e espião) até épocas mais recentes, nomeadamente até se confundirem com simbologias maçónicas. A edição desta obra e de outros estudos de Manuel Rosa, já fizeram com que, nos Estados Unidos, mas um pouco por todo o mundo, surjam vozes a pedir a revisão de manuais escolares, retirando dos compêndios de história as referências à origem genoveva do descobridor da América. Quem era de facto Cristóvão Colombo, que relação tinha ele com Portugal e geral e com a região algarvia em particular, que proximidade tinha com D. João II, porque ofereceu os seus serviços a Espanha, porque regressado da América reuniu primeiro com D. João II, antes de se dirigir a Espanha, são alguns mistérios resolvidos pelo autor nesta obra, prefaciada na sua edição portuguesa por Nuno Campos Inácio e editada em Portugal pela Arandis Editora. 


::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

COLOMBO: MISTÉRIO RESOLVIDO
Referido em várias críticas internacionais como o melhor e mais autoritário livro alguma vez escrito sobre Dom Cristóvão Colon, a sua edição inglesa venceu o Prémio de Melhor Livro de História Mundial, na sua edição de 2017, nos Estados Unidos.
O livro, que se lê não apenas como um trabalho histórico biográfico, mas como uma obra de mistério e suspense, qual história de aventura, esmaga todos os tipos de paradigmas.
A obra é composta por inúmeras afirmações extraordinárias, feitas desassombradamente pelo autor, que tem o cuidado de confirmá-las sempre documentalmente, recorrendo inclusive a testes de DNA. Cada detalhe é um facto inédito e convincente, que deixa o leitor constantemente na expectativa da revelação seguinte, viajando constantemente por trilhos laterias excitantes, que nenhum pesquisador do “Colombo” alguma vez sequer percebeu existirem, e muito menos, ousou se aventurar. 
O livro revela um mundo surpreendentemente sofisticado em espionagem geopolítica no século XV.
O navegador apresentado na nova biografia não é um incompetente marinheiro, lunático, que se perdeu no caminho para a Índia, ganhando imortal fama pela sua ignorância. Era realmente outro James Bond altamente qualificado no seu tempo, que planeava cada passo com cuidado e executava-o com perfeição. Foi-lhe confiada uma missão secreta, e ele realizou-a tão perfeitamente através de mentiras, intrigas e traição, que demorou meio milénio para alguém descobrir a verdade.

Esse facto, por si só, derruba um imenso complexo de mitos, fraudes, confusões e controvérsias que durante séculos rodeavam o papel e a identidade de “Cristóvão Colombo,” embora o raciocínio para sustentar esta afirmação seja muito intrincado e abrangente para ser resumido em poucas palavras. Basta dizer que o descobridor era um personagem radicalmente diferente, em uma missão radicalmente diferente, do que há muito se supôs.” - Bob Lamming

Considerado a maior autoridade hoje sobre a vida do descobridor das Américas, Manuel Rosa iniciou a sua “viagem de descoberta” em 1991, durante os preparativos para o Cinquentenário nos Estados Unidos. Em 2006, publicou os iniciais resultados surpreendentes da sua pesquisa n’O MISTÉRIO COLOMBO REVELADO

Passados mais 11 anos de incansável pesquisa em documentos históricos de vários países, este COLOMBO: MISTÉRIO RESOLVIDO apresenta mais factos novos, nunca dantes ligados ao misterioso navegador, e traz soluções para por fim a todos os enigmas e mistérios que ainda existiam na vida de Dom Cristóvão Colon. 
O que transparece com evidência numa procura autêntica, rigorosa e sem «pré-conceitos» da verdade histórica é o genial plano secreto da Junta de Matemáticos e do Rei D. João II, sem dúvida, um dos grandes génios e estrategas políticos do passado milénio. Viaje até aos bastidores do Era dos Descobrimentos num texto que se lê sofregamente, página a página, e está recheado de surpresas. 
Após a leitura do COLOMBO: MISTÉRIO RESOLVIDO a história jamais será vista como dantes. 
O véu de mistério e segredos tecido 500 anos atrás foi retirado.

"A informação contida nas páginas de COLOMBO: MISTÉRIO RESOLVIDO é nada menos que autêntico abridor de olho". -Anita Lock do IndieReader.com

Eu tenho feito pesquisas históricas por mais de 50 anos e encontrei o livro de Manuel Rosa como uma extraordinária pesquisa arquivística.” - Dr. E. Lee Spence, Arqueólogo Subaquático. Presidente da Sea Research Society.

"Agora acredito que Colombo é culpado de uma enorme conspiração realizada ao longo de duas décadas". - Professor James T. McDonough Jr., St. Joseph’s University.

Manuel Rosa will be at The Regulator Bookshop - October 7, 2016



Manuel Rosa, "Christopher Columbus: The Untold Story"

MANUEL ROSA
Friday, October 7 at 7:00PM
Manuel Rosa will be at The Regulator Bookshop in Durham NC, to read and sign his latest book, Columbus -- The Untold Story, a biography which unravels historical discrepancies surrounding Columbus and presents answers to the many reasonable questions that have never been explained. Columbus is truly an enigma with a much more complicated personal and professional life than history has told, including the high probability that he was of Polish royal blood.
Rosa has spent over a quarter century investigating America's legendary "discoverer" and his books have garnered International media attention and inspired dialogue amongst scholars, historians and educators. Now regarded as the world's foremost authority on Columbus, his own "voyage of discovery" began during the Columbus quincentennial, when his doubts were stirred by the supposed marriage of the lowly Italian peasant to a highborn Portuguese lady. Rosa has essentially proven that Columbus served as a double-agent for the Portuguese crown, that the Santa Maria never sank, but, rather, was purposefully marooned and that Columbus' 1498 Last Will and Testamentis a forgery.
Manuel Rosa is a Portuguese-American investigative historian who received the Boston Globe’s Art Merit Award in 1976, the Lockheed Martin Lightning Award in 2002, and the American Institute of Polish Culture’s Special Recognition Award in 2015. He has authored six foreign books on Columbus, has advised UNESCO and the Haitian government on matters related to Columbus' lost ship, the Santa Maria, and has appeared on BBC, NPR, the Travel Channel's "Expedition Unknown," and numerous foreign-language media.

Who was Columbus? - Xavier University May 20, 2016

May 20, 2016 is the 210th Anniversary Of the Death of Columbus: Died May 20, 1506


The untold story – was Columbus not Italian but of Polish Royalty?
Dinner with Manuel Rosa

Friday May 20 – Conaton Board, Schmidt Hall, Xavier University
5:30 – 6:15 reception; dinner at 6:15 / lecture and discussion starts at 7 pm


Join us for dinner and discussion with Manuel Rosa, author of COLUMBUS- the Untold Story.

Christopher Columbus's origins have long been shrouded in mystery for be utilized an assumed identity in Spain and continuously hid and lied about his past. Schoolbooks teach that the navigator was a poor Italian from a Genoese family of peasant wool weavers. Over the centuries there were claims that Columbus was a native of Greece, Spain, France, Scotland and even Jewish but according to new evidence, Columbus was none of the above for he hailed from Polish royalty.

Hear the latest evidence from Columbus expert Manuel Rosa, author of COLUMBUS. The Untold Story, who has spent 25-years investigating historical documents in various countries and bas unearthed unknown facts which are turning the Columbus history upside-down. "Our whole understanding of Christopher Columbus has for 500 years been based on misinformation. We couldn't solve the mystery because we were looking for the wrong man, following lies that were spread intentionally to bide his true identity," Mr. Rosa told The Daily Telegraph.

Rosa will present new insights into ulterior motives for the epic 1492 voyage across the sea. Columbus was not in search of the real India at all, but was acting as a double-agent with the secret mission of taking the Spanish crown, Portugal's only European enemy, as far away from India as possible. In this secret mission, the navigator was a true James Bond whose successful lie of America being India managed to fool the world for five centuries.

Manuel Rosa is a Portuguese-American historian and author who emigrated from the Azores to Boston in 1973. A graphic artist working for Atlantic Monthly and Boston Magazine, he became an IT Professional with Lockheed Martin and now works at Duke University. Mr. Rosa has lectured at European and American universities, has advised UNESCO and the Haitian government on matters related to Columbus, bas appeared on BBC, the Travel Channel's Expedition Unknown, on NPR, and many other media and foreign language documentaries.

Join us for a stimulating and entertaining evening about world history that you won 't want to miss.

Guests are welcome. RSVP to kstrunk@fbtlaw.com or call 513-651-6166. FPLC, Brueggeman Center, and World Affairs Council members-$25 / guests-$30. Pay at event or send check (payable to FPLC) to Joe Dehner, 3300 Great American Tower, 301 E. 4th Street, Cincinnati, Ohio 45202.

ASSOCIATION CRISTÓVÃO COLÓN,  a non-profit organization, in collaboration with Nowy Dziennik – Polish Daily News, is funding the publication of the English language Edition of Manuel Rosa's award-winning and groundbreaking book COLUMBUS THE UNTOLD STORY.



For 10 years now, Mr. Rosa has been fighting the establishment and its Matrix trying to convince US Publishers to make his research available to the American public, all to no avail. Therefore, we are going directly to you. We feel you deserve to know the truth and that because you want to know the truth, you will support us in bringing "COLUMBUS. The Untold Story" to American readers by pre-ordering your copy today.

Mr. Rosa's first book on Columbus was publish in 2006 in Portugal. He next published "COLÓN. La historia nunca contada" (COLUMBUS. The Untold Story) in 2009 in Spain, then in Poland as "KOLUMB. Historia nieznana," which made the cover of Newsweek, selling out in months, and lastly in Lithuania as "KOLUMBAS. Atskleistoji istorija." 
COLUMBUS. The Untold Story reveals incredible hidden secrets of the life of Columbus, his double-mission in Spain and the surprisingly sophisticated world of fifteenth century, geopolitical politics and espionage. 

Another nutty conspiracy theory!! That’s what I first supposed. I now believe that Christopher Columbus is guilty of a huge fraud carried out over two decades.” - James T. McDonough, Jr., Ph.D. Professor for 31 years at St. Joseph’s University.


Columbus-The Untold Story Book Release event in Vilnius, Lithuania, 2014

Miltiades Varvounis, distinguished Greek-Polish historian, researcher and author wrote in an extensive article about Manuel Rosa's book on Christopher Columbus saying that the book, "is a magnum opus and by no means should be considered a work of pseudo history or just another source of nutty conspiracy theories. Rosa's numerous reliable findings and solid theories would make Sherlock Holmes jealous. The History of Columbus has many mixed-up facts and personalities, and maybe the time has come for the discoverer's life to be finally rewritten." - Source Lithuanian Heritage Magazine, (January/February 2913) pg. 28.
Cover of Newsweek, Poland, Feb. 2011 and enthusiastic readers showing off the Polish edition

This 25-year-long investigation has unearthed unknown facts regarding historical documents discovered in various countries, the information that the supposedly Italian Columbus did not even use Italian in his letters, not even to his brothers, neither did his brothers write Italian to Columbus. 

Add to this the sheer impossibility of a peasant Columbus being able to marry into the socially-superior nobility in Portugal plus have direct access to several monarchs in order to carry out his quest and it becomes apparent how the history we learned was not accurate. In short, academics now are forced to acknowledge that the Discoverer of America was no simple wool-weaver’s son from Genoa.

Lecture at Balzekas Museum of Lithuanian Culture, Chicago, 2012

A Portuguese historian believes he has solved the 500-year-old mystery of Columbus' true identity after a thorough investigation of medieval documents and chronicles. The origins of the man who discovered the Americas has long been a subject of speculation. Contemporary accounts named his birth place as the Italian port of Genoa to a family of wool weavers but over the centuries it has been claimed that he was a native of Greece, Spain, France, Portugal and even Scotland. Others claimed his origins were hidden because he was Jewish or secretly working as a double agent for the Portuguese royal family. But the latest theory suggests that the great navigator, who died in 1506 after four voyages to the New World, was in fact of royal blood: the son of King Vladislav III who was supposedly slain in the Battle of Varna in 1444 ... fled to live in exile on the island of Madeira where he was known as "Henry the German" and married a Portuguese noblewoman. - From Balzekas Museum announcement of the Lithuanian book,  Chicago, IL

REVIEWS OF THE FOREIGN LANGUAGE EDITIONS:

“The book is an extensive and well-documented work on the still-enigmatic figure of Cristóbal Colón, with evocative and notorious contributions that will, with absolute certainty, be talked about for a long time.”
  ­– Professor D. Félix Martínez Llorente, University of Valladolid

"Any historian who is lucid (also if he is not lucid he can hardly be called a historian), given the knowledge of the social relations that prevailed at the time, cannot have any doubt of the FACT, that is more than obvious, that CRISTÓBAL COLÓN HAD TO BE SOMEONE BORN OF THE HIGHEST NOBILITY. Regarding this fact, END OF DISCUSSION. The evidence is now so plentiful that one merely needs to enumerate it to come to this obvious conclusion. His high nobility birth is an issue that is no longer worth wasting our time debating."
 –João Abel da Fonseca, Deputy Secretary-General of the Marine Academy, Secretary of the Class of Maritime History, Academic Correspondent of the Portuguese Academy of History, Vice-President of the Division of History of the Geographical Society of Lisbon, and Chairman of the Council of the Institute of European Culture and Atlantic

“I am a professor of History who specializes in 15th and 16th century Portuguese contacts with West Africa. I do Portuguese paleography, and my research supports your conclusions that Colón was a Portuguese spy for King João II.”
 – Professor Trevor Hall, - PhD. in History from Johns Hopkins University

 "Without a doubt, Manuel Rosa shoved a stick into an anthill destroying a great design. Its publication evokes a historical tsunami, which, not only turns upside-down the history of the discovery of America, but also makes one reflect on the current textbooks in the canon of history . . .The book is extensive and you cannot approach it lightly, or seeking sensationalism. It requires the reader to focus, reflect deeply, persevere through all the arguments put forward by the author, which consist of up-to-now unknown facts of the biography of Christopher Columbus."
- Adam Pawlowski, history  professor in Poland.

"I agree with Manuel Rosa’s research one hundred per cent ... Nothing invalidates the concept that he could have been born in Portugal.”
-Joaquim Veríssimo Serrão, ex-Dean of the University of Lisbon, World-renowned Professor and President of Portuguese Academy of History for 25 years. (Prof.  Serrão wrote in his preface for the Portuguese and Spanish editions.)

"No serious historian, after reading the original Portuguese, Spanish and Italian documents from the 15th-16th Centuries and after having done a proper study of Colón's original heraldic shield, can be indifferent to the truth, and continue insisting in sanctioning unequivocally what others had written prior to the new evidence. Manuel Rosa made an exceptional investigation methodological and well documented."
 – Professor José Carlos Calazans, Lusófona University in Lisbon

“Cristóvão Colón was a Portuguese born noble tied to the House of the Duke of Viseu.”
– Professor Manuela Mendonça, declared to the media following Rosa's lecture at the Portuguese Academy of History, May 16, 2012, as its president


"For the first time ever, a book was written about Colón without starting from any preconceived certainties and every piece of the puzzle is explained point by point."
 – Professor Antonio Vicente, History Professor at Lisbon University

“Finally we have a work of investigation into the history of the discovery of America that is amply documented and shows the real fraud created by the proponents of the accepted tale of an ignorant Columbus. It offers abundant clues to unraveling the great mystery that surrounds the «discoverer of America» and puts forth the long needed change in the perspective of the analysis of this historical figure.”
–José Rodrigues dos Santos, author and nightly news anchor for RTP, Portugal
