Major Historical Figure from Asia!
Marco traveled to Asia, Italy and maybe even more. But the most important one was when he traveled to China. He told people that he saw the most wealthiest city he has ever seen. He even met with the emperor Genghis Khan! But then he went to prison at the Palazzo di San Giorgio from 1296 to 1299 for commanding a Venetian galley in a war against Genoa. After he got out, he returned to what he did best. But at 1324 CE on January, Marco Polo died at the age of about 69. In his will, he freed a "Tartar slave" who had served him since his return from China.
