the story of la merika is based around an alleged voyage that henry sinclair made from scotland to present- day america in the early 1400s, almost 100 years before columbus made his voyage in 1492. theorists speculate that sinclair discovered a royal archive under the temple mount in jerusalem, stating that phoenicians from tyre, voyaged to a western continent following a star called la merika. According to some, the templars learned that in order to reach present-day America, they had to follow a star by the same name, which became the origin of the name america.
