Castles and the Rosette Map

The headdresses the women in the Voynich manuscript wear tell us plainly that they gathered from different areas in Europe. We know from history and genetics that Finno-Ugric peoples underwent series of migrations west.

Note that throughout all of these posts, we are still within the circled area that presents the most likely region from which the Voynich originated.

Here is a comparison of buildings in the Voynich manuscript with those found mostly around Prague, Czech Republic and accompanying waterways. For example:

Schwerin Palace gains access to the Elbe. (The map above shows this castle as Hluboka. This is an earlier, incorrect assumption.) The journey is on the whole linear but within each rosette it is non-linear, the castles acting as centers of a funnel to tributaries into the main waterways--rendezvous places for the journey.
Blatna Water Castle: the Lomnice.
Karlstejn: the Berounka.
Kokorin: also the Elbe.
Pardubice/Hrad Kunětická Hor: Elbe to Vltava (Moldau) to Danube

A. Schwerin Palace*
B. Blatna Castle

C. Karlstejn Castle
D. Křivoklát Castle
E. Kokorin Castle

Correction: A. is not the State Chateau of Hluboká pictured above , as previously posted,
but rather Schwerin Palace pictured at the top of the post.

  1. Could I ask how you figure the area of origin? Every reputable source I have encountered agrees it was written in Northern Italy and has many German influences, so most likely somewhere along the border between Italy and Germany. Nowhere near Northern Europe, almost certainly more Central Europe. Your area of origin seems at odds with everything known about the manuscript, to be honest.
