Was Tartarian Quinsay in Russia? TPTB says it was in China.

If anything, this article is an additional tribute to how messed up our history is, as far as locations and times go. As a food for thought, think about why the maps attributed to the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries used to display Scythia. Scythia kicked the bucket around 100 BC. Naturally, why 1,800 years later we can still see it mentioned the maps? Our contemporary cartographers do not mix in some ancient Roman Empire, or ancient Greece into our contemporary maps. These are just a few, but we have quite a lot out there.
Could Scythia be much closer on the time table than we are lead to believe? The reason I mentioned Scythia in this manner is due to me questioning the timing of the existence of Marco Polo, and Niccolo de Conti. Allegedly they lived in the 13th-15th centuries. I think the timing should be closer to the 1600s. That is if they even existed, for we have Jesuits in the mix, and this fact is a wild card of sorts. Anyways, Marco Polo and Niccolo de Conti are the primary sources for the information related to the city of Quinsay. There are other ones out there, but these two guys are special.

The City of Quinsay
12,000 bridges & 100 miles across

I will post a few cut outs from various books, but, in reality, you have to do some research/reading of your own. This topic has people like Columbus and Toscanelli in the mix. In general, the info is out there, and for those interested there will be a way to find some. Marco Polo was accused of exaggerating the observed in the city of Quinsay. 1,200 Quinsay bridges were reduced to 10, and some other things... what else is new? Here is an example of poor Polo being ridiculed. And this here is an example of TPTB moving the city of Quinsay to China.

About 45 degrees North








For those interested in the Columbus connection, please consider visiting the source of the cutout below.



With Quinsay being arguably one of the greatest city this world has ever known, it is not surprising that the Powers That Be want us to know nothing about it. I should probably make two corrections here. Of course, it is not this world, but the previous one, and it was not in Russia but rather in the area currently occupied by Russia. We could say that the city of Quinsay was located in the eastern Tartaria. Yet, I'm inclined to think that these legs grow from Scythia, which allegedly predated Tartaria. Here are a few links to the images attributed to Quinsay:
  • QVINZAY: highly zoomable + backside
    • An aerial view of the city of Hangzhou, showing its buildings, canals and bridges, and junks in the surrounding water. This unusual plan perpetuates the description of Hangzhou given by Marco Polo in the late 12th century: its 12000 bridges, its massive network of canals, its paved roads and its large lake with island pavilions and palaces upon it. Jansson reproduced this information with fanciful embellishment. This is the only plan of China and the Far East to appear in Jansson's "Theatrum Urbium Celebriorum" (Amsterdam, 1657).

  • Daniel Keller. Asiae nova descriptio.


Judging by where the Wiki supported narrative wants to redirect us, we are required to think that Quinsay was in the area currently occupied by the Chinese city of Hangzhou.

Hangzhou North-South Coordinates:
  • 30°15′N

I think that the city of Quinsay North-South coordinates were indeed:
  • ~44 to 45°N
These 15° degrees would mean an approximate difference of 1,000 miles, if we go straight up North from Hangzhou. This distance escalates to approximately 1,250 miles, when we account for the outline of the continent of Asia. Of course, this location would also mean that Marco Polo traveled to some places the knowledge of which TPTB chose to keep to themselves.

Polo had never visited Russia, right?

Quinsay on the Maps
With the Straight of Anian, aka Bering Straight to the right, and Japan just below, it is hard to imagine how TPTB managed to move the city of Quinsay all the way to 30° N.
You are welcome to play with this progression yourself. In the process you will see the floating island of Korea approaching its place of rest where it eventually turns into a peninsular.

Prester John
Somehow, we have Prester John in the mix here. Go figure why 17th century maps would have this important historical figure mentioned at all. I've seen quite a few of them maps mentioning the guy.

Interesting enough, but one of the allegedly earliest depictions of the Three Wisemen, or Three Magi (with one claimed to be Prester John) has all three wearing Scythian Hats. Those little coincidences...

KD: This info is just for an FYI. Do with this what you will. Whether Marco Polo went there or not appears to be fairly obvious. The narrative says otherwise. So many cities can be observed in that area. Whatever happened...
