Summary of Marco Polo Season 2 DVD
Morgan argued that Polo as a mere Venetian merchant would not had been considered an important person in the Mongol Empire, so his omission is not surprising, especially if one considers that the bridal entourage numbered in the hundreds.The British historian David Morgan argued that Polo and/or his ghost-writer Rustichello da Pisa certainly exaggerated and lied about his status in China,Marco Polo Season 2 DVD making him the friend of Kublai Khan, the governor of Yangzhou and helping the Mongols take Xiangyang, but these falsehoods do not prove that Polo never went to China.Morgan argued that it is possible that Polo served in the Imperial Salt Monopoly in Yangzhou, but he was never the governor of Yangzhou as a European ruling an important and wealthy city like Yangzhou would have been a sufficient novelty in 13th century China to merit a mention in the Chinese records, and there is none.In defense of Polo,Marco Polo Season 2 Morgan noted that the voyage of the princess from China to Persia to marry the Īl-khān is confirmed by a 15th-century Chinese encyclopedia and by the Persian historian Rashid-al-Din Hamadani in the Jami' al-tawarikh-through neither mentions Polo or indeed any European as part of the bridal party.
