“History is the lie commonly agreed upon,” said Voltaire. Those who get to agree are the educators who wish to simplify or those with a political agenda who want to toss blame. Columbus might have discovered America, but his discovery was five hundred years after Norse farms existed in the maritime provinces of Canada. It was also one hundred years after an expedition from Scotland landed in Nova Scotia. The Sinclair family sought America not to find riches, but to conceal them. The Lost Treasure of the Knights Templar tells the tale of a treasure taken from Paris by wagon train and the Templar fleet before the French king could grab it. Workings on tiny Oak Island indicate that only someone with advanced knowledge of engineering and hydraulics could have built the remarkably complex tunnel system that has never given up its treasure. The Templars had such knowledge.
The Lost Colony of the Templars shows that the Sinclair family not only discovered “America” they regularly visited it. They even attempted to plant a colony and left behind a monument unique to Templar builders. They also settled the island of Madeira in the Atlantic. It was only after Columbus married into a family related to the Sinclairs and settled on that tiny island, that he would find his way to America.
Allegedly looking to trade with Chinese emperors and Indian maharajahs, he brought with him trinkets and mirrors. If he was going to the Far East he might have brought more suitable gifts.
The French king had managed to smash the Templar organization by cutting off the head, but Hydra-like the Templars survived as bankers, pirates, slavers and soldiers. While they evolved, heirs to the Templar organization are responsible for major historic events from the Revolution, to the American Civil War, to events in the headlines today.
Secret Societies of America’s Elite shows the extent of the sub rosa powers that move America even today.
After Lost Treasure of the Knights Templar was published it was my pleasure to hear from readers whose genealogies may have had a connection to someone in the book. The most interesting person who wrote to me, told of her family whose roots extend to most ancient times. I had just finished reading Iman Wilken’s Where Troy Stood and her tale sidelined my focus on the Templars to an even more distant past. What started in the library brought me to Portugal, Spain, Morocco and Italy, north to England and Sweden. I was soon convinced Troy could never have been in Turkey, nor could the wanderings of Ulysses have happened in the Mediterranean. Triumph of the Sea Gods is the evidence for such a conclusion.
