El Enigma de los tesoros malditos

When Captain William Kidd was hanged in London on 23 May 1701 left more than a legacy of death, leaving the illusion of finding his lost treasure. Since then many dreamers traveling the globe in search of these wrecks, sometimes protected by curses unfathomable ...

Kidd is the stereotype of the pirate, and bloodthirsty
keeper of the secret of an immense treasure hidden somewhere
place on the planet. A number of novelists were inspired by
his exploits as James Fenimore Cooper, and Edgar Allan Poe
Robert Louis Stevenson in Treasure Island, a novel that
contains all the ingredients for a good story of
pirates: a map unintelligible, a mysterious island,
conspiracies, mutilation, murder and a lot of gold
buried. The good news is that most of these ingredients
adorned the life of William Kidd. In a desperate attempt
to save his life, wrote to the Speaker of the House of
Common English Parliament by promising to reveal the
situation of a part of their wealth, amounting to one hundred
thousand pounds, in exchange for not execute. Not accepted
The "generous offer" and the pirate Kidd had to face
try your luck at the gallows. Some believed that this letter does not
was just a bluff, but others thought that exaggerated and not
your treasure-o-treasures were hidden in several
parts of the world. The legend spread after Kidd
death and many were adventurers, and that cazatesoros
embarked with the idea of finding these caches. So
only after 200 years, in 1929, the first
evidence that was not a bluff. Hubert Palmer, lawyer
English retired, bought an oak desk century
XVII with the following inscription: "Captain William Kidd.
Adventure Galley, 1699. " Referring to the name of
and the pirate ship in which he tropelías by their various
oceans, Adventure. Palmer sought secret compartments
and found a narrow tube containing a brass with a
map of parchment rolled up. It appeared an island surrounded
by the China Sea, with the initials "WK" and the date
1699, which coincided with a calligraphy written with Kidd.
The discovery was the starting point of a series of
expeditions to various regions of the east coast
American, Indian Ocean and the Sea of Japan in search of
Kidd fabulous treasure. All this has generated a great
rocambolescas number of episodes of betrayal,
murders and bankruptcies on a par with a number of places
in which he felt a foot juntillas that there was
buried the treasure of this and other pirates. Gave equal; rioja
was important to get rich at the expense Kidd, Morgan, Drake and
and that was that despite the curses and
many deaths surrounding the treasures, stained
Blood from the outset. Things pick and shovel to take
The frantic search was launched in the most
strangers and pilgrims that one can imagine. Any
hint, rumor or piece of map was more than enough to
go beyond the seas in search of great treasure, but until
the time has been able to locate. There is still awaiting a
someone with more luck, more technical and
economic, or simply find more clever
Treasure Island first and then the exact location where
dig. There are several places that have been discussed
around the legendary treasure of Kidd. If you have an idea
done with it, take note, not repeat it twice:

Oak Island or Oak Island, off the coasts of
Nova Scotia, Canada, sought unsuccessfully since 1804.

Yokoate Island, part of a
archipelago that stretches from southern Japan to

Gardiner Island, off the coast of New
York. Coco Island in the Pacific, southwest of Costa

Juan Fernandez archipelago.

Clipperton Island, or Island of the Passion, in the
Pacific, southwest of the Mexican coasts.

In one of these six sites should follow the
treasure or treasures-laughing all the unwary that have been
approached by its edge without adequate protections
physical and psychological, as something said by the legend that
money is cursed. In February 2000 an expedition
U.S., led by archaeologist Barry Clifford,
found the remains of the sunken boat Kidd, the Adventure,
object of desire of treasure hunters near the
coast of Madagascar. But that was not the treasure ...
