Marco Polos life 1254-1324

Marco Polo was a explorer, a hero. He traveled to china when he was 17 years old. He has lots of family members and friends. He went to jail in 1280. He was born in 1254 and died in 1324. His childhood was mostly traveling.

When Marco Polo was 17 he traveled to China with his uncle, Maffeo Polo and his father, Niccolo Polo. This was his first ever adventure on a boat. They went there because his father and uncle were traders and had to trade something in China.

Marco Polo's childhood was mostly spent on traveling with his uncle because he was a trader same as his father. He lived with his uncle and aunt because his mother died after giving birth to him.

Marco Polo has lots of family members like his father and uncle, Niccolo Polo and Maffeo Polo also his aunt and his mother and many more. His best friend was Christopher Columbus, and they did everything together.

Marco Polo went to jail in 1280 because he got captured in war by some bad people, and stayed in jail for a very long time.

His journey started in 1254 and his journey ended in 1324 8 January. People were sad, Upset, and disappointed because all of that research and discovery is finished. I think Marco Polo was a hero and also a great Italian explorer
