The PEDIGREE of
Georges `le Grec' PALEOLOGUE de BISSIPAT

 
     aka Colon (Colombo) the Younger; aka Georgios (PALAIOLOGOS) DISHYPATOS (`Bissipat' = `Dishypatus' = `twice Consul'); aka Giorgio Griego, Zorzi Greco; Vicomte de FALAISE; Admiral; supporter (& possibly cousin) of Columbus

    Note: George the Greek was a Byzantine nobleman who escaped to Genoa at the 1453 fall of Constantinople; he became a prominent French Admiral and served as a key advisor both to King Louis XI of France and King Afonso V of Portugal. He served under Guillaume `Colon' de Casenove and was thus nicknamed `Colon the Younger.' George helped sponsor Christopher Columbus (who may have adopted the name `Colon/Colombo' because of this connection, and who may have been George's cousin: many scholars doubt Columbus was even Italian).
