Storyboard Text

  • Hello. I am Marco Polo. I was born in 1254 into a very well off family of merchants.  When I was young, my father and uncle left on a trading expedition. When I was young, my mother died, and I was raised by extended relatives. I first met my uncle and dad in 1269.
  • Two years later, My father, uncle and I went to Acre. we got some holy oil, then backtracked to Acre to pick up many thing. We then went to Hormuz, but unable to find any good boats, we took the silk road. In 1275, we arrived at Kublai Khan's summer palace in Shangdu. I was taken in as a tax collector.
  • After many years, we were finally able to escort a princess to her future husband. Unfortunately, he was dead, and she was made to marry his son. We stayed with his brother for 9 months before heading to Venice, Constantinople, and Negroponte. We arrived home in 1295, and Kublai was dead. Shortly after, I was captured by Genoa. While in prison, I collaborated with Rustichello to make a manuscript entitled, "description of the World". In 1299, a peace treaty allowed Me to return home. In 1300, I married Donata Badoer and had 3 daughters. 
  • And that is the story of my life. Bye!
