Prince Edward's crusade

Second trip of the polos

After two and a half years of waiting in vain for the election of a new Pope, Niccolò and Matteo Polo decide to go on a second trip east to Great Khan Kublai without a papal blessing . Since Niccolò's wife has died in the meantime, he takes his 17-year-old son Marco with him on the trip. The Polos first stop in Acre and, with the consent of the papal legate Tebaldo Visconti, get some oil from the lamp of Jesus' tomb in Jerusalem . The three Venetians set out for Ayas with a letter from the Cardinal Legate to the Great Khan, confirming the honest efforts of the Polos to fulfill their mandates and justifying their partial failure with the continuing vacancy . On the way they find out that the legate has meanwhile been elected Pope as Gregory X. on September 1st and travel back to Acre at his request. The Holy Father hands them letters to the Great Khan and gives them at least two Dominican brothers named Niccolò da Vicenza and Guglielmo da Tripoli who happen to be in Acre.
