Certainly the Don Cristóbal who wrote that he was 28 years old in 1484 could never be the Cristoforo Colombo from Genoa, who was described in the Assereto Document as being 27 years old in 1479.

Columbus secret identity is now revealed and his secret spy mission exposed.
You are invited to come by these free events and listen to the new evidence:
To Be Unveiled: Christopher Columbus’ Fort Navidad, Europe's First Settlement in the New World!October 9: Potomac State College of WVU, Keyser, WVRobert Rasche’s painting – which depicts the fate of Columbus’ flagship, the Santa María – was specially commissioned for this event. Author and researcher Manuel Rosa is going to present dramatic new findings which prove conclusively that the Santa María was NOT accidentally lost at sea on Christmas Eve of 1492, as has long been believed; it was marooned.This one fact by itself demolishes an immense complex of myth, fraud, confusion and controversy that has for centuries surrounded the role and identity of Christopher Columbus – though the reasoning to support this claim is both too intricate and too broad in scope to be summarized in a few words. Suffice it to say that Christopher Columbus was a radically different character, on a radically different mission, from what has long been supposed – and that another US institution of higher learning is standing forth to shine a light on this historic truth.Widely regarded as the world’s foremost authority on Columbus, Manuel Rosa was drawn into his own impassioned “voyage of discovery” in 1991, during preparations for the Quincentennial in Spain and Portugal. In 2006, he began to publish the astonishing results of this research in his native Portugal. Rosa will appear this fall at lectures and book signings in Portugal and Poland, where heavily updated translations of his book are about be released. The earlier Portuguese and Polish editions sold out quickly.As one might expect, the news about Columbus is spreading. Last year’s pilot translation of Rosa’s book into English – with four completely new chapters, all told nearly a third of its paradigm-busting content – was planned to coincide with the 500th anniversary of the great explorer’s death. Columbus: The Untold Story, won the 2017 Independent Press Award in World History, and the Huffington Post called it, “the best self-published book on History in 2016.”“I have been doing historical research for over 50 years and found Manuel Rosa's book to be an extraordinary piece of archival research.” - Dr. E. Lee Spence, Underwater Archaeologist. President, Sea Research Society.While supplies still last, copies of the special limited edition may be purchased on Amazon or at the author’s website: www.Columbus-Book.com.The lecture is free and open to the public.

Manuel Rosa's book "COLUMBUS-The Untold Story" wins 2017 INDEPENDENT PRESS AWARD®!
May 5, 2017 / PRZen / GARFIELD, N.J. -- The INDEPENDENT PRESS AWARD recognized "COLUMBUS - The Untold Story" by Manuel Rosa in the category of Biography: Historical, as a Winner of 2017 Independent Press Award.
The competition is judged by experts from all aspects of the book industry, including publishers, writers, editors, book cover designers and professional copywriters. They select award Winners and Distinguished Favorites based on overall excellence.
Columbus - The Untold Story (already named Best History Book of 2016 in the Huffington Post) smashes all kinds of paradigms of history. After 21 years of research into what he realized was a 500-year-old mystery of a man, and mission, and spy craft and espionage of the highest order, Rosa puts the pieces together like no one else before him has been able to. Columbus supposedly started life in a family of indigent wool-weavers in Genoa, however, this was speculative because Columbus went to great lengths to conceal his true name and nationality.
Rosa travels some exciting side trails too that no Columbus researcher ever even noticed before, let alone dared to venture down. He dug deeply into previously ignored archives, examined newly emerged documents, and read thousands of documents and books in Portuguese, English, Spanish, Italian, French and Polish.
Columbus used a secret identity in Spain, the book explains, because the discoverer was on a secret mission for Portugal to lure Spain away from India and secure Portugal's monopoly over the Spice Trade.
The book is chock full of reproduced documents and color plates that support Rosa's thesis. There are so many extraordinary claims the author makes in this book and yet he meticulously supports them throughout the book, even DNA tests to verify and repudiate relations and descendants. Every detail is a compelling fact that leaves you begging for the next one as the plot advances. It reads not only like a historical work, but as a spy thriller and adventure story as well.
"I am very happy to have my research recognized by Independent Press Award. It is an honor to know that my book brings value to the contentious subject of Columbus, who died 511 years ago on May 20th, 1506, but whose real story very few people knew," says Manuel Rosa.
"In 2017, we had worldwide participation, from London to Australia, from Portugal to Hong Kong, and are so proud to announce the winners and favorites in our annual INDEPENDENT PRESS AWARD. Independent publishing is alive and well, and continues to gain traction worldwide," said awards sponsor Gabrielle Olczak.
