Storyboard Text

  • Father?!
  • Ok. We shall leave in two years. 
  • Marco!  The chaos of the Mongol Empire had blocked our way home, so we had to turn East in order to trade.  But now, Kublai Khan has sent us on a goodwill mission to the pope. We must leave quickly!
  • Marco Polo was raised by his extended relatives for the first 15 years of his life. 
  • When they finally arrived at Kublai Khan's palace at Xanadu in 1275, Marco Polo was taken in as a tax collector. 
  • It is amazing how many people we have met from different religions and cultures while trekking through deserts, mountains, and other rough terrain!
  • I can't believe we have already sailed to Acre and secured holy oil, gifts, and papal documents at the request of Kublai Kahn! 
  • Marco Polo was captured in battle by Genoa after he returned from escorting a young princess to her intended husband.
  • I am Rustichello, from Piso. Would you like to collaborate on a manuscript, called "Description of the World"? 
  • I may as well, since I have no hope of getting out of this prison... I can tell you tales about warfare geography, money, and other really cool inventions. 
  • And so, Marco Polo lived happily ever after... in a prison..
  • Until a Genoese-Venetian peace treaty about 2 yers later allowed Marco Polo to return home and marry Donata Badoer.
