Pohl’s main source of information and inspiration was Zeno Narrative, a collection of dispatches written by Sinclair’s tireless chronicler Antonio Zeno who accompanied “A Prince of the Islands” on a transatlantic voyage and described in detail their arduous journey. Thanks to Pohl’s patient research (which includes an astonishing piece of calligraphic detective-work), we now know how the purpose of the expedition, the exact date of its arrival in New World and place of landing: we know of Prince Henry’s meeting with natives and of the enormous cultural impact he made upon them; and we know that he left a permanent memorial stamped on a rock in New England.
