The Republic of Genoa

Genoa. Genoa. Genoa. There is “something” about the Republic of Genoa that I can’t quite grasp yet. It’s so bloody annoying! Why do the history books all say that Christopher Columbus was from Genoa when he was more probably from Chios? He was Greek. I’ve covered him and his son Hernando already here a while […]

Napoleon Bonaparte

Napoleon has been bugging me for quite a while now. I have this sense that his official history is All Wrong but can’t work out why. Two questions – Was Napoleon a little, angry megalomaniac bent on causing havoc wherever he went? OR Was Napoleon pissed off because he hated how the new world order, […]
