No portrait of Columbus exists....No artist or sculptor considered the great "Admiral" and "Discoverer" of the New World a fit subject for a portrait because they did not want to retain an image of a PIRATE for posterity!!

The first mention of Columbus was in a piratical attack on Venetian shipping in 1485.

This biography of Columbus was written by his son, Ferdinand. This battle was supposed to have taken take place in 1476, but according to the Venetian Archives, it took place on August 22, 1485. The pirate Colombo the Younger had 7 warships and took the captured galleys to Portugal.


"The first cause of the Admiral's coming to Spain and devoting himself to the sea was a renowned man of his name and family, called Colombo, who won great fame on the sea because he warred so fiercely against infidels and the enemies of his country that his name was used to frighten children in their cradles....He must have been a formidable person, indeed, because on one occasion he captured four large Venetian galleys of such great size and armament that they had to be seen to be believed. He was called Colombo the Younger to distinguish him from another Colombo who in his time also won fame on the sea. Marcus Antonius Sebellicus, the Livy of our age, writes in the eight book of the Tenth Decade of his work that about the time Maximillian was king of the Romans, Hieronimo Donato was sent as ambassador from Venice to Portugal to thank King João II for for having clothed and relieved the people on these great galleys, which were returning from Flanders when they were met and defeated near Lisbon by Colombo the Younger, that famous corsair, who robbed the ships' people and turned them ashore.

"I return to my main theme. While the Admiral was sailing in the company of the said Colombo the Younger (which he did for a long time), it was learned that those four great Venetian galleys aforesaid were returning from Flanders. Accordingly Colombo went out to meet those ships and found them between Lisbon and Cape St. Vincent, which is in Portugal. Here they came to blows, fighting with great fury and approaching each other until the ships grappled and the men crossed from boat to boat, killing and wounding each other without mercy, using not only hand arms but also fire pots and other devices. After they had fought from morning to the hour of vespers, with many dead and wounded on both sides, fire spread from the Admiral's ship to a great Venetian galley. As the two ships were grappled tight with hooks and iron chains which sailors use for this purpose, and on both sides there was much confusion and fear of the flames, neither side could check the fire; it spread so swiftly that soon there was no remedy for those aboard save to leap in the water and die in this manner rather than suffer the torture of the fire. But the Admiral, being an excellent swimmer, and seeing land only a little more than two leagues away, seized an oar which fate offered him, and on which he could rest at times; and so it pleased God, who was preserving him for greater things, to give him the strength to reach the shore. However, he was so fatigued by his experience that it took him many days to recover." (Life of Columbus, pp.37-38.)

Here is the same account from the Venetian Archives for the year 1485.

"A dì 8 ditto, vene nova come, a dì 22 avosto le 4 galie nostre di Fiandra —Capetanio Bortolamio Minio quondam sier Marco —partide di Cades, se incontrò in Colombo ((zovene)), zoè Nicolo Griego, capetanio di 7 nave armade, con le insegne dil Re Carlo di Franza; et erra di note sora cao San Vicenzo; et poi, il zorno, fonno a le man; fo morti galioti 300, e sier Lorenzo Michiel quondam sier Thomà, patron di una galia, et sier Iacomo Dolfim quondam sier Dolfim:) patron di L'altra galia, con altri nobeli. Durò la bataglia da prima horra de dì, fino a horre 20, a la fin Colombo fo vitorioso, e plese le dite galie, et quelle menò a Lisbona, terra dil Re di Portogalo; e lì il Capetanio, li do patroni e merchadanti fonno, dal ditto corsaro, relassati a pena vestiti.
Le galie discargono, e tolto la roba in Ihoro nave, lassò le galie vuode, et de lì se partirono.
Ma quel Re di Portogalo, memore che uno d'i soi progenitori Re vene a Veniexia per andar in Hierusalem, et cussì, poi uno fiol, dil re, et fo molto honorati de Venitiani, vestite il Capetanio Minio, li do patroni e altri nobeli et galioti, che erano spogliati, datoli danari, si messeno in camino per vegnir per terra in questa Terra. Et cussi veneno."(Le Vite dei Dogi, p. 504).

This is an extract from the Venetian Archives for the month of August, 1485. It is in 15th century Renaissance Italian and Latin.

The truth is that Columbus was a free lance PIRATE employed at that time by the king of Portugal. All the captured ships were brought to shore and became the property of the king.


According to his son, Columbus did not fare well in this battle. The outnumbered Venetians fought like LIONS....His ship caught fire and he grabbed an oar and swam to shore. As a result of his narrow escape from death, the "reformed" pirate decided to give up his life of piracy, settle down, and become a "family" man. He was about 50 years old at that time.

With the loot from the stolen Venetian galleys, Giovanni Griego alias Columbus, settled in Portugal and married a rich lady of noble birth named Doña Felipa Perestrella. They settled on the island of Madeira south-west of Portugal. It was on that island that 5 shipwrecked sailors died in the house of Columbus. These sailors were blown by a horrific hurricane all the way to the West Indies.

In 1486, 5 shipwrecked Spanish sailors died in the house of Columbus after returning from a voyage to the West Indies!!

Island of Madeira where Columbus lived.


As blood is thicker than water and the leopard cannot change his spots, Columbus resorted to his old habits of piracy, murder and theft when 5 sailors were shipwrecked on the island of Madeira. All the sailors conveniently died in the house of Columbus leaving him with their maps and charts of the location of the New World.

It was safer to be in the middle of a raging story in the Atlantic than to be a guest in the Columbus house!!

How the New World was discovered by Garcilaso de la Vega.

  " ...And because of the delay they ran out of water and supplies. For this reason and because of the great privations they had suffered on both journeys, they began to sicken and die, and of seventeen men who left Spain, no more than five reached Terceira, among them the pilot Alonso Sanchez de Huelva. They stayed at the house of the famous Genovese Christopher Columbus, because they knew he was a great pilot and cosmographer and made seamen's charts. He received them kindly and entertained them lavishly so as to learn the things that had happened on the long and strange voyage they said they had undergone. But they arrived so enfeebled by hardships that Christopher Columbus could not restore them to health despite his attentions, and they all died in his house, leaving him the heir to the hardships that had caused their death" (Royal Commentaries of the Incas, vol. 1, pp. 12-14).

Columbus goes to the king of Portugal.

With the dead pilot's maps and charts in his possession, Columbus went to the king of Portugal and gave him a long list of demands as his price for "discovering" new islands. The king refused his offer because he did not trust a pirate and he could easily send his own expedition using the dead pilot's maps and charts. Columbus then left Portugal and arrived in Spain in the year 1487.

Columbus in Spain.

When Columbus arrived in Spain, that country was completely dominated by an alien force called the "Bank" of Rome. Its practical outworking was the infamous Spanish Inquisition led by the dreaded Dominican monks. The head Inquisitor named Torquemada was also spiritual advisor to Queen Isabella.

St. Paul was the founder of the church of Spain ... not Santiago.

St. Paul was the founder of the church of Rome . . . and the church of Spain.... St. Paul told the Christians in Rome that he would stop and visit them on his way to Spain. While St. Paul was on a ship bound for Rome, Satan raised up a tremendous storm which raged for 14 days. Satan does have the power to raise ferocious storms. His plan was to sink the ship or blow it all the way to the New World in order to prevent Paul from reaching Rome . . . and Spain!!

"Whensoever I take my journey into SPAIN, I will come to you: for I trust to see you in my journey, and to be brought on my way thitherward by you, if first I be somewhat filled with your company."(Romans 15:24) "When therefore I have performed this, and have sealed to them this fruit, I will come by you into SPAIN" (Romans 15:28).
"But not long after there arose against it a tempestuous wind. called Euroclydon. And when the ship was caught, and could not bear up against the wind, we let her drive"(Acts 27:14-15). "And when neither sun nor stars in many days appeared, and no small tempest lay on us, all hope that we should be saved was taken away"(Acts 27:20).

Giovanni Griego the pirate becomes Christopher (Christ bearer) Columbus!!

The Christ bearer Columbus.

When Columbus arrived in Spain, he changed his name to Christopher or Christ bearer. This was probably done on the advise of the Dominican monks who knew that the best way to approach their Catholic majesties and get financing for his expedition was to tell them that he was going to bring the Good News of Jesus to the benighted heathen in the New World.

At first the Spanish monarchs were very reluctant to meet his exorbitant demands but they later relented and sent him on his voyage of "discovery" in 1492.

The reason for this was that the news of the discoveries of John Cabot were beginning to reach Spain. The last thing in the world that Satan wanted was that England should colonize the New World. His plan was that the infernal Spanish Inquisition should dominate and destroy the New World as they had dominated and destroyed the old.

It was no coincidence that exactly 9 days after Columbus left Spain, a Spanish Pope — the infamous Borgia —was elected to head the "Bank" of Rome.

Washington City becomes Washington D.C. District of Columbia!!

In the U.S., the big push to canonize or deify the pirate Columbus came after the fall of the Papal States in 1870. On June 1, 1871, the name of the headquarters of the government was changed from Washington City to Washington D.C. —District of Columbia!! No expense was spared by the Knights of Columbus to glorify this thief, murderer, pirate and buccaneer.... A seal and motto, "Justitia Omnibus" (Justice for All), was adopted for the District of Columbia.

In 1937 President Franklin Roosevelt proclaimed every Oct. 12 as Columbus Day and in 1971, President Nixon declared it a federal public holiday on the 2nd Monday in October.
