We have returned, Your Majesty, with more goods and knowledge to trade.
It is nice to see you again!
This is my son, Marco.
After that, Marco went back to Venice along with his father and brothers.
In 1271, 17-year old Marco Polo went with his father and uncle to trade goods and knowledge with the Mongol emperor, Kublai Khan. They traveled for three years along what later became known as the Silk road.
Later, Kublai Khan took a liking to Marco and gave him many jobs to do for the kingdom, for 17 years.
He joined the war of Genoa until he got caught and was put in jail for a year. There, he met a writer named Rustichello. Marco couldn't write, but he had many stories from his life to tell others. So, he dictated all of them for Rustichello to write down a book. The book became famous, and so did Marco.
