So wait a moment; why many historians claim that Columbus wasn't a reaĺ person  when there are letters and proofs dating back to his presence?

I wonder how the original letter was found and returned if it could have gone missing anytime in the past 90 years, no one knew it was missing until a tip off and no one knew who took it .

Now this is content worthy for a mystery/thriller book! Just add murder and a few plot twists and you've got yourself an entire plot.

Never heard any Historian claim Columbus wasn't a real person...he didn't discover America though, the Natives did, then the Vikings, then John Cabot.

Sounds like the plot of the next Dan Brown novel :D  

Although the mundane explanation is a rich, obsessive, collector wanted it to secrete in a safe in a vault where no-one but he would ever see it, and got someone to switch it.  Sad.

The true explanation is always much less interesting and exciting :sleepy: I'd much prefer the novel rather than reality.

Quick - Call Tom Hanks!  The articles says the "original" was a copy.so who wrote that?  Did Columbus find carbon paper or write one letter for each Monarch?
