The motions of the lithospheric plates have been reconstructed for three time intervals back to the Early Cretaceous. These displacements were analyzed to determine the best-fitting rigid rotation, which could then be ascribed to true polar wander. The true polar wander so obtained is no larger than a few degrees and is within the magnitude of the uncertainties involved.
