Long overdue in the eyes of many scholars, this comprehensive examination into the life of Christopher Columbus rehearses the many alternative theories of Columbus s origins and the objections each has to the Italian theory of his birth. School children around the world are taught that Christopher Columbus was Italian, or, more precisely, a Genoese who sailed to the New World for the Spanish only because that country s sovereigns gave him the money for the project; many scholars throughout history, however, have cast doubt onto this version of the explorer s story. After digging up these counter-cultural theories and discussing their individual merits and prejudices, this scholarly investigation selects the theory most likely to be true: Christopher Columbus was a Catalan, born in the principality of Catalonia, a member of a family hostile to the dynasty that ruled his newly united country.Biografía del autor:
