Though Christopher Columbus was a genius sea traveler, his life was full of mysteries. It isn’t difficult to understand his purposes, but nobody knows which secrets he took to the other world. I think, I could find out most of his secrets. I’ll explain all of those secrets gradually. But first of all, I want to describe the traveler’s childhood and youth. After Columbus’s project was rejected by the “Mathema-tical Union” under the leadership of Diego Ortiz de Villegas, the king Juan II decided to send an expedition to the west of the Atlantic Ocean in order to check his project. The king and his advisers made this decision by common consent. At that time the “Island of Seven Cities”, Haldat and Anthelia Islands located in the west of the Atlantic Ocean were discussed in the Pyrenean peninsula and most countries of Europe. The king Juan II entrusted the Frenchman by name Ferdinand van Olmen known in Portugal as Fernando de Ulmo with realiza-tion of this work, he didn’t choose Columbus for this purpose.
