Is it a coincidence that the Templar assets
from France that went to Scotland and Portugal provided
the liquidity for firstly the Prince Henry Sinclairs voyage to
North America, and then subsequently the liquidity for the Portuguese
explorers in opening up Brazil, and the Cape route to the East Indies,
Goa, and Portuguese East Africa. Certainly many of the early Portuguese
navigators were Templar followers of the Portuguese order.
In this case French ( or French domiciled) capital helped two other nations,
firstly the Scots and later the Portuguese, to open up trade routes
to the East and the West.
Laura Zola is indeed following in ancient footsteps of the Templars
who managed to flee from France.
