In the video, experts discuss the mystery of Christopher Columbus' origins. They believe that he may have been from a humble background and covered up his identity to avoid embarrassment or shame. If he was from a more modest family, it is more likely that his brothers would have been less involved in his later voyages to America.

  • 00:00:00 In the video, scientists at the University of Granada are examining the remains of Christopher Columbus, which have arrived at their laboratory. One of the scientists, José Antonio Lorente, is an expert in DNA analysis, and he will examine the genetic code of the remains. The professor of forensic anthropology, Miguel Botella, is also involved in the analysis. The anthropological analysis could reveal crucial information about the age of Columbus at the time of his death, and it could also change our understanding of his life and legacy. However, there have been no results yet that prove that Columbus was not Italian. This would mean that we would have to rewrite many parts of his history. Charles Merrill, an expert on Christopher Columbus, is in Genoa, Italy, and he wants to examine a document that is supposed to prove that Columbus was Genovese.

The professor who made the discovery suggests that Colom was killed in a gruesome practice known as "manto," in which the remains of the victim are cut open and their organs extracted. The bones are then smashed to pieces and the remains left to rot. Though the theory has been met with some skepticism, the discovery of Colom's bones in Spain and the Dominican Republic has reignited interest in his story.
  • 00:10:00 The video discusses the mystery of Christopher Columbus, discussing the possible reasons behind his coverup of his identity. Experts believe that he may have been motivated by fear of something or of feeling embarrassed/ashamed of his humble origins, and that his brothers would have been less likely to have known about them if he had come from a more modest family background. If Columbus had come from a Genovese family of poor peasants, it is more likely he would have wanted to keep them away from him when he achieved power. Columbus' two brothers followed him to later voyages to America. If Columbus was not from a poor background, it is less likely that he would have wanted to have them around during his rise to power.
