Rabban Sauma, who is called the Chinese Marco Polo, became the only immigrant from China who described his journey through Europe. Being a Nestorian monk, Rabban set out on a long and dangerous pilgrimage to Jerusalem in the 1278 area. Having advanced from the Mongolian capital Khanbalik, that is, present-day Beijing, he crossed all of Asia, but already approaching Persia, learned about the war in the Holy Land and changed the route. In Persia, Rabban Sauma was cordially received, and several years later, at the request of Argun Khan, he was equipped with a diplomatic mission to Rome. First he visited Constantinople and King Andronik II, then visited Rome, where he established international contact with the cardinals, and eventually ended up in France, at the court of King Philip the Fair, proposing an alliance with Argun Khan. On the way back, the Chinese monk was granted the audience of the newly elected Pope and met with the English king Edward I.
