America would not have been discovered in 1492. An incredible revelation that comes from an expert after years of research.

Christopher Columbus is considered for all intents and purposes the discoverer of America, thanks to his landing in San Salvador on October 12, 1492. As we know, the navigator was financed by the kings of Castile and Aragon, with l special interest of Isabella of Castile, thanks to which he managed to obtain the necessary money to sail.
In fact, Christopher Columbus, after studying his brother’s maps, analyzing the finds, and listening to sailors’ stories of the islands off the ocean (actually the Atlantic today), was convinced that ‘in addition to the Azores, there should be other lands, Asia.
This is how, having obtained the necessary money after many years, on August 3, 1492 at six o’clock in the morning, he left with the three famous caravels, the Nina, the Pinta and the Santa Maria. On October 10, there was a start of mutiny and the navigator promised that if they did not see land within three or four days, they would change their objective. On the 12th of the same month, the sailor Rodrigo de Triana sighted land. it was the island of Guanahani, which Christopher Columbus renamed San Salvador.
Christopher Columbus: Did the discovery of America happen a year earlier?
The historian and writer Ruggero Marino, however, believes that the discovery of the New Continent took place well before 1492, dating it back to 1491 again by Christopher Columbus, but under the protection of Pope Innocent VIII, who then died in July of the following year. . .
The hypothesis will be supported even today by the scientist, during the presentation of his book “Dante, Colombo and the end of the world”. The event will take place today July 11 at 6:00 p.m. at Palazzo Firenze in Rome, at the headquarters of the Dante Alighieri Society.

Marino is certain, also based on the 1507 “Chronicle of the Lives of the Roman Popes and Emperors”, that it was Rodrigo Borgia and not Isabella of Castile who was his chief financier. A truly puzzling assumption.
