Columbus "Secret Identity" in Boalsburg, PA

Columbus was a Polish Prince, Claims Visiting Historian.
Chicago Film Crew Will Film His Lecture
and His Visit to the Columbus Chapel on April 6, 2013, 


 (Boalsburg, PA) -  Manuel Rosa, a long-time historical researcher, author of four foreign-language books on Columbus and a native of Portugal, has researched Columbus’ mysterious origins and has come to a conclusion quite different from the conventional wisdom. He has decided that new evidence points to Christopher Columbus being a Polish prince.

Mr. Rosa will visit Centre County on Saturday, April 6, 2013, with a Polish film crew from Chicago. Early in the day he will pay homage to Boalsburg’s Columbus Chapel, the nation’s strongest link with the famed explorer, and then will give a lecture at a reception at 4 pm at the Boal Mansion titled "The Secret identity of Christopher Columbus: Peasant to Viceroy in 33 Days.”

For the last 21 years, Mr. Rosa has investigated and searched out the facts concerning the discovery of America utilizing a non-biased scientific approach that has taken him to Portugal, Spain, the Dominican Republic, Poland and many places in-between in his pursuit of Columbus’ origins. The new information he garnered about Columbus resulted in the publishing of his first book in 2006.

Mr. Rosa has appeared in various TV documentaries, on many European TV and Radio interviews as well as on BBC Radio and WNPR. His book has even been mentioned on Saturday Night Live.

The 4 pm lecture and reception is sponsored by the Boalsburg Village Conservancy. It is free and open to the public. For more information, see or contact 814-466-9266 or
