The Mystery of an Empire Lost in History

The Chinese have a proverb:

“The longest journey starts with but a single step”.

There’s a story circulating on the internet regarding a country lost in the chronicles of history. A country that once seemed to be world known is now forgotten, buried in the sands of time.

Johann Baptist Homann - Map of the World, 1716

French map dated 1700

“History is always written by the winners.
