Nantes - (Merovingian Line Nonsense): Scraps of a newly discovered document found in Nantes Public Library written by the Renaissance genius may have decoded the mystery behind the WikiLeaks founder.
Leonardo's signature back-to-front script in the body of the text refers to a 'Julian Assange' by his anagram name of 'Jesus Anal Gain'.
The manuscript dates from Da Vinci's Blue Period and was donated to the City of Nantes by French philantropisst Pierre-Antoine Labouchere in 1872.
