Queen Scota

Post by Spiritwind »

I mentioned Queen Scota on the Standing Rock thread, but it seems to deserve its own thread. I cannot prove the veracity of these stories, but nonetheless intriguing to think about. Our true history is probably far more interesting than we have been taught, for sure, and it does seem as though there have been some deliberate efforts to keep the truth from the general population. Someone somewhere knows though.

The Descendants of Gael and Scota



SCOTA

-Irish history records the story about Scota, the daughter of Pharaoh of Egypt who arrived in the southern part of Ireland between 4,000 and 3,500 years ago. She took on the trade route, sailing in search of the new world. She travelled to Spain from the Delta, by means of an Egyptian ship. She settled in the country of Kerry (south-western part of Ireland) and married Milesius and gave him eight sons.

Milesius, an invader from Spain, came to Ireland to conquest the ancient tribes and to take the kingdoms from Tuatha-De-Danaans. MacCuill, Mac Ceacht and Mac Greine fought in a long bloody battle about three miles from Tralee. Not only did the Danaan princes die in the battle of Tralee but also Scota the warrior Queen of the invaders was also killed. It seems that her sons Heremon and Heber were the only surviors of Milesius ruling family and that they divided the country between them. One took the north and the other the south. Then they inevitably quarrelled and Heber was slain.

Scota is buried on the sloped mountains in view of Tralee Bay at a place called Glenscoheen (Scota's Glenn). Irish archaeologists have not yet carried out any investigation on the site, which consists of woodland and natural rocks. The Ordnance Survey of Ireland has shown the actual location of the burial of Scota.

Gaels were descended from a princess named Scota. Her husband was Niul, the Governor of Capacyront, by birth, a Black Sea prince of Scythia. Her name “Scota”, which was Scythian for “ruler of the people” was gained by the princess when she married Niul.

Scota was the daughter of Egyptian Pharaoh Smenkhkare. Smenkhkare was known by several other names and spellings of his own name. These include Smenkhkara, Smenkhkaron, Achencheres (in Manetho’s Egyptian King List), Cencheres (the version used by the Christian church-father Eusebius), and Cinciris (from early Gaelic history). The phonetic version of one name listed above, that of Smenkhkaron, provides the name by which history knows him best, that of Aaron – described in the Bible as Moses’s brother. In actuality, Aaron was Moses’s first cousin and a feeding-brother of Moses. (Aaron’s mother Tey was the woman who nursed Moses when he was born). Aaron, or Smenkhkare, was pharaoh for a short interim period when Akhenaten was forced to abdicate when he tried to impose only one god (named Aten) on the Egyptians. Akhenaten (meaning Glorious Spirit of Aten) was originally born named Amenhotep (meaning Amen is pleased). He ruled as Amenhotep IV until he changed his name and tried to get the Egyptians to worship the one god Aten, instead of the chief god among many – named Amen. Akhenaten is best known in history by his Hebrew name used in the Bible – that of Moses.

Back to Scotland - According to the 17th century History of Ireland, Niul and Aaron entered into an alliance of friendship with one another. The Gaelic text further states that Gaedheal (Gael), the son of Niul and Princess Scota, was born in Egypt, at the time when Moses began to act as leader of the children of Israel. These leaders, from which the Gaelic people descended, were themselves descended from historic people. The Scythians, before the migration of Niul and Scota to Ireland and Scotland, were descended from the Biblical Ham and Japhet. Ham, was known as Thoth, (the supposed author of the Egyptian Book of the Dead, containing the original version of the Ten Commandments) to the Egyptians and Japhet was known as Iapetus II to the Greeks. The Declaration of Arbroath in 1320, announced to the world the heritage of Scotland from Scythia. (Gardner)

The Gaels are named after their common ancestor, Gael [also known as Gaedheal, Goadhal, Goidel, Goidel Glas, Gathelus or Gaythelos], who was born in Egypt around the time of the Biblical Moses. Gael was the son of Prince Niul, who was a son of King Fenius the Antiquary [Feaniosa Fearsuidhe] of Scythia, and of Princess "Scota", a daughter of Egyptian Pharaoh "Cincris" or "Achencres".


Scythia was the name given by much later Greek writers to the area north of the Black Sea between the Carpathian Mountains and the Don River, in what is now Moldova, the Ukraine and eastern Russia. Scythians kept large herds of horses, cattle, and sheep, and were famed for their horsemanship and skill as archers. The Scythians had developed a rich and sophisticated civilization by 4000 BC, as evidenced by bronze and gold objects of mesmerizing technical and artistic skill, found in the recently excavated, opulent tombs of their kings and nobles:

The most detailed accounts of King Fenius of Scythia, his son Niul and his grandson Gael come from the "Foras Feasa Ar Éirinn", known in English as the History of Ireland, written by the Gaelic scholar Seatrún Céitinn, D.D. sometime prior to 1640 AD:

When Fenius became King of Scythia, he was determined to become acquainted with the various languages that had sprung up after the confusion of tongues that, according to Biblical tradition, had taken place long before at the Tower of Babel in Sumeria. He sent seventy-two of his court scholars to the various countries on the three continents of the world that were known to be inhabited, and charged them to remain abroad for seven years, so that each of them might learn the language of the country in which he stayed. At the end of seven years, they returned to Scythia and to King Fenius, who then established a school for the teaching of languages.

Upon hearing of this school, King Ninus of Sumeria [ancient Babylonia] summoned Fenius and his scholars to the capitol city of Ninevah. Fenius obeyed the summons of King Ninus, his overlord, and journeyed to Ninevah, together with his scholars and a large number of the youth of Scythia, leaving his eldest son Neanuall to rule Scythia in his absence. At the command of King Ninus, Fenius established schools for the teaching of the various languages at a city called Eathena on the Plain of Seanair near Ninevah. The three senior sages who presided over these schools were Fenius from Scythia, Gaedheal from Greece, and Iar from Judea.

It was about this time that Niul, a son of Fenius, was born at Eathena. Feinius remained in charge of the schools at Eathena for many years in order that this son Niul might become a scholar of languages. Then, after twenty years at Eathena, Fenius returned to Scythia, re-established the schools there and appointed his friend and associate Gaedheal to take charge of them. King Fenius also commissioned Gaedheal to formalize and record the language of the Scythians. It is after Gaedheal that the Scythian language was named "Gaeilge" [also known as Gaelic].

The origins of the name Gaedheal [also spelled as "Gael"] have been disputed among scholars for hundreds of years. Becanus said that it derived from the words "goedin", meaning "noble", and "uile", meaning "all", that is "all noble", or from the Hebrew word "gadhal", meaning "great", because Gaedheal was great in learning, wisdom and languages. However, Gaelic tradition holds that "Gaedheal" derives from the two words "gaoith", meaning "wise", and "dhil", meaning "loving", that is "lover of wisdom".

Fenius ruled Scythia for twenty-two years after his return from the Plain of Seanair. At the point of death, he bequeathed the sovereignty of Scythia to his eldest son Neanull, and left to his younger son Niul only what profit he could derive from the schools for sciences and languages.

Prince Niul ran his schools in Scythia for a long time, during which his fame for knowledge and wisdom spread throughout the nations of the world. Because of Niul's great renown as a scholar and teacher, Pharaoh "Cincris" of Egypt sent envoys to him, inviting him to Egypt to teach the sciences and languages to the youth of Egypt. Niul accepted the invitation and sailed to Egypt with Pharaoh's envoys.

The name "Cincris" does not appear in any of the known king lists of Egypt. "Cincris" could have been the name of one of the rulers of a Nile Delta nome [province] or the name of one of the Hyksos pharaohs [who the Egyptians called "hequa khasut" or "rulers from foreign lands"], for which written records are scarce. One of the known Hyksos pharaohs of the 15th Dynasty, which is believed to have ruled from the city of Avaris in the Nile Delta from around 1663 BC to 1555 BC, was named Khyan ("Xian" in Greek), who was also called "Great Hyksos". It is possible that "Cincris" is a variant of "Cian Groi" [Khyan the Great] or "Cian nGriosach" [Khyan of the Hot Ashes]. Pharaoh Khyan was likely ruler of Lower Egypt when the Minoan Empire and much of the eastern Mediterranean basin were destroyed by the cataclysmic volcanic eruption of the Minoan island of Thera in 1628 BC. It is also possible that "Cincris" was not a person's name, but rather an archaic translation of the Greco-Egyptian word "pharaoh", which literally meant "great house". Another possibility is that the pharaoh being referred to was "Achencres", the Greek spelling for Pharaoh Akhenaten.

Pharaoh "Cincris" gave the land called Campus Circit [also known as Capacyront] beside the Red Sea to Prince Niul. Pharaoh also gave his daughter "Scota" in marriage to Niul. The name "Scota" is not an Egyptian name, but a very much later Latin name meaning "mother of the Scotii", because the inhabitants of Ireland were called "Scotii" by the Romans. After Niul married "Princess Scota", he established schools at Campus Circit for teaching science and various languages. It was there that "Scota" gave birth to a son, whom Niul named Gael [also spelled "Gaedheal"] , after his old friend and teacher.

Sometime after the birth of Gael, Moses and the children of Israel escaped from Pharaoh's bondage, marched to the shore of the Red Sea and made camp near Campus Circit. When Niul heard of this, he went to meet with them and to find out who they were. At the outpost of their encampment, he met Aaron, the brother of Moses, who related to him the story of the children of Israel, and of Moses, and of the miracles that God had wrought against Pharaoh. Niul and Aaron entered into an alliance and friendship with one another, and Niul offered him whatever corn and means he had to assist them. Then Niul went back to his own people, and told them that the children of Israel were nearby, and about all that had befallen them.

That same night, as Gael was swimming, a venomous serpent bit him on the neck. Some say that it was from the desert that the serpent came, and that it bit Gael while he slept. In either case, he was soon at the point of death. Niul took the dying Gael to Moses. Moses prayed to God, and applied the rod given to Moses by God upon the wound, and thus healed Gael. Moses then said that, in whatever place that the issue of Gael would settle, no serpent would ever have venom. According to Gaelic tradition, Gael was thereafter called Gaedheal Glas because of the green scar that remained on his neck. Others state that Moses had placed around the neck of Gael a locket with the green bracelet that Moses had worn on his own arm, and that it was from this bracelet that he was thereafter called Gaedheal Glas. At that time, each chieftain wore such a bracelet on his arm as a mark of his tribal supremacy. Still others assert that he was called Gaedheal Glas after the grey-blue colour of his weapons and armour.

Later, Niul told Moses that Pharaoh "Cincris" was very angry with him for having welcomed the children of Israel and for having offered them assistance. Niul feared the wrath of Pharaoh. Moses offered to take Niul and his people along with the children of Israel to the land promised to Moses by God, and to provide for them a share of that land, or to help Niul seize Pharaoh's fleet so that Niul and his people could flee Egypt by sea. Niul accepted the latter offer, and a thousand armed men were sent with him to seize Pharaoh's ships. Niul and his people embarked upon them and beheld the events of the following day, namely the parting of the Red Sea before Moses and the children of Israel, and then its closing back upon Pharaoh and his army of sixty thousand foot soldiers and fifty thousand horse soldiers, drowning them all. Niul, having witnessed the death of Pharaoh and his host, returned to Campus Circit, since he no longer feared Pharaoh's retribution.



Some time afterwards, Niul died, and Gael and his mother took possession of the lands at Campus Circit. Later, a son was born to Gael, whom he named Easru, and some time after that, a son was born to Easru, whom he named Sru, and they remained on their lands at Campus Circit. As for the Egyptians, Pharaoh "Intuir" had assumed sovereignty over Egypt after the drowning of Pharaoh "Cincris". When Pharaoh Intuir and the Egyptians had restored their army and strength, they rekindled their enmity against the descendants of Niul. They made war upon them, and drove them from Egypt.

Thomas Walsingham agreed with this account in "Upodigma", where he said: "When the Egyptians had been drowned, the portion of the inhabitants who lived after them expelled a certain Scythian nobleman who dwelt amongst them, lest he might assume sovereignty over them."

The descendants of Gael and "Scota" fled Egypt, and embarked upon a long oddessy that, over the succeeding generations, would take them from Egypt, first to Candia [ancient Crete], then back to their ancestral homeland of Scythia, then to sail the Caspian Sea for several years, then to Getulia [ancient Libya], then to Galicia [northwestern Spain], then back to Scythia, then back to Egypt again where another "Scota", a daughter of Pharaoh "Nectanebus", would marry the Gael's leader Míl [Milesius], then to the islands of Irena and Gothia, then back to Galicia, and finally on to the conquest of Ireland, the promised land of the Gaels, under the leadership of the sons of Míl and their mother, the second "Scota".

There is recent speculation that the first "Scota" may have been the daughter of the "heretic" Pharaoh Akhenaten and Queen Nefertiti.

According to Lorraine Evans, in her book "Kingdom of the Ark", Princess Merytaten, a daughter of Akhenaten and Nefertiti, may have taken Gael as her husband after the death of Pharaoh Smenkhkare. This Scota and her husband were reported to have fled Egypt and eventually to have sailed to Britain, where the wrecks of two Egyptian ships, discovered near Hull in 1937 AD, have been radio-carbon-dated to the period 1400 BC to 1350 BC.

According to the "Scotichronicon", written around 1435 AD by Walter Bower, the Abbot of Inchcolm Abbey in Scotland: "In ancient times, Scota, the daughter of pharaoh, left Egypt with her husband Gaythelos by name and a large following. For they had heard of the disasters which were going to come upon Egypt, and so through the instructions of the gods they fled from certain plagues that were to come. They took to the sea, entrusting themselves to the guidance of the gods"… "After sailing for many days over the sea with troubled minds, they were finally glad to put their boats in at a certain shore because of bad weather." Bower went on the relate that the "certain shore" was in the north of Britain, and that Scota and Gaythelos and their followers eventually settled in what is now Scotland for a while, until being forced to flee to Ireland. The original source for Bower's account of Scota and Gaythelos may have been the "World Chronicle" compiled by the Roman writer Eusebius of Caesarea around 320 AD, based upon the earlier "History of Egypt" compiled by the Greek writer Euhemerus around 300 BC.

Elven Faerie Druid Star Seeds Dark Age Witchcraft Burning Times

The magickal mystical metaphysical realm of knowledge and lore remains either wholly underground and shroud in concealed mystery or else left to the contemporary public “New Age” movement to become the “straw man” fallacy to those who have failed to understand the true legacy that is deeply embedded within. . . This current excerpt is from the “Book of Elven-Faerie” (2006, Joshua Free), which Mardukite Chamberlains currently recognize as the revised volume: Druids of the Necronomicon – Secrets of Elves, Dragon Kings & Scions of the Anunnaki by Joshua Free available from the Mardukite Truth Seeker Press in both paperback and limited hardcover
editions.

Druids of the Necronomicon - Secrets of the Elven-Faerie, Dragon Kings & Scions of the Anunnaki by Joshua Free

Throughout the Dark Ages, the persecution of magick drove its beliefs, practices and practitioners out of public sight. The remaining magickal blood and lineage was then split in two. One group went into the deep woods where these Nature-oriented shamanic-like people could maintain the ‘folk-witch’ traditions in secret. On the other hand magick was also carried by an elitist group that maintains a better known chain of secret societies that coexist with mortal society and play an important role, while at the same time existing almost independently and ‘above’ that same society. I am referring to that Elven-Ffayrie branch of Illuminoids and Masons.

The ‘secret society’ (Elven Council) of the Dark Ages did not exist with the same societal role as in the Age of Faerie, nor do people see it as very significant today. The lineage has also fallen along the way and continues to be removed from the original Elven-Ffayrie race. It has endured its own evolution and so its members remain today, reconstructionists. ‘Distant descendants’ with ‘mystical inclinations’ who were not actively a part of the ‘pureblood lineages’ that ruled these secret societies for thousands of years, have and continue to be granted membership ‘on-commitment.’ This occurs (or has occurred in the past) when an organization’s membership is on the decline. Just as the Danubian Drwyds broadened their restrictions when they were in danger of losing their tradition and culture, the Freemasons do so today.

Between the Ancient Drwyds and the neo-Druids, there stands a long lineage of Masonic organizations, each claiming to have a secret knowledge about our history, as well as practical metaphysical lore. Nearly all secret, mystical and magickal cabals and sects have at one time been incorporated into this story and have common ground. We can assume from the Elven Histories that after its ‘star origins,’ the magickal tradition mainly emerged from the Mediterranean/Mesopotamian region forming a delta of Sumerian, Greek and Egyptian traditions sharing the name, “Hermetics.” This original ‘Hermetic Tradition,’ is what modern occultists can trace their varying ‘secret traditions’ back to, making it an archetype for all magickal systems. As a result of the knowledge migrating across Europe, different factions began to emerge in different times and under different regional nationalities.

The Dagon of the Nile region (Africa) is one such tribe that came from Sumeria around the time the Tuatha D’Anu were leaving to move across Aeurope to the West, among others. The great cataclysm that must have dispatched so many people in so many different directions has only been speculated as the ‘Black Sea Flood’ or ‘Fall of Atlantis.’ These Dagons possessed ‘star knowledge’ from the Sirius system and another Nile tribe, the Nubians, had an obscure knowledge (reminiscent of the Sumerian Ubaid) that was set down in the Book of Khemet, more commonly known as the Egyptian Book of the Dead. Those familiar with my prior work, Merlyn’s Magick should notice the connection here concerning Egypt. The knowledge of the tribes is believed to not have originated with the Egyptians and Sumerians themselves, but to have been taught be an inter-stellar ‘star-race.’ In writing these words I am reminded of the work of Zecharia Sitchen, who I have not personally referenced but who, I am told, has produced thousands of pages of good research material that would support the Elven Histories.

The elitest practitioners of Modern Hermetics trace some of their lore and tradition to the Gnostics. Gnosticism was the highest religion of the Hermetic-Delta until the arrival of the Roman Empire. After this, the tradition is developed in Western Aeurope where it is maintained by the Celtic Druids of the La Tene culture until it is finally pushed to the very shores of the ocean and its islands as well as the Northern-Hyperborean reaches of the European mainland. Finally it is forced underground, but it is certainly not obliterated. The tradition is split in two between the secret mystics in the woods and the paladin-rangers who rise up against the Crusades, naming themselves the ‘Cathar’ and ‘Knights Templar’ (Mergovian Knights of the Temple) who were pledged to uphold the legacy and culture of the ‘True Church,’ which had descended from Hermetic-Gnosticism and was no longer being upheld in Rome.

In the late 1500s, a member of the mystic tradition who was in service as Wizard to Queen Elizabeth I, discovered, was taught, or carried an obscure branch of Ancient Hermetic Tradition. John Dee was able to access the Otherworld with the aid of a young alchemist/seer named Edward Kelley. The system of magick they channeled changed the nature of the philosophical Gnostic form of Hermetics into an elitist ceremonial ‘Enochian Tradition,’ clearly related to Enoch. It is very similar in nature to the ceremonialism of the Sumerian/Babylonian styled magick that is recorded on tablets or demonstrated in Simon’s Necronomicon. While I make a comprehensive investigation of these connected but separate systems in Merlyn’s Magick, several fundamental ideas seem to overlap specifically in the Elven Histories. I do suggest that Renaissance and Medieval sorcery should only be studied, rarely, if ever, used.

Donald Tyson, a modern Wizard and author adept in the history and use of Enochian practices, has suggested that the Enochian system might hold the ‘key to the apocalypse,’ in his book Tetragrammaton. Both the Gnostic-Enochian system and the Hebrew-Sumerian mythos suggest that there is a gate or seal protecting this world from a malignant force kept “outside” (or if it is not evil, of a chaotic nature that would be disruptive to the existence of the world as we know it.) Gerald and Betty Schueler, in their Advanced Guide to Enochian Magick have suggested that the Enochian system was indeed the magick of the Necronomicon. In the case of the Necronomicon itself, it is written that the book is to be left to the Wizards of Men and Elves as a means to keep the energy current of the ‘Ancient Ones’ out of our time-space and sealed behind the ‘Gate of the Elder Gods.’ Such would make this the magick of Enki, creator of the Human Hybrids, and that would make the magick of the Enochian Tradition kept secret by the Hebrew Kabbalists, descended from the Enoch-Cano line. Enoch is reported in the Holy Bible as being the offspring of Cain. No matter what way you look at it, the Enochian and Cthonic systems seem inappropriate for use (but not necessarily study) by Humans or even naïve Elves.

The knight-ranger lineage became the Illuminoids who inspired the Masonic Traditions today. The other arm, the Mystics, became the Rosicrucians, ‘Mystics of the Rose-Cross.’ Illuminoid Masons and Rosicrucians who were more interested in the magickal aspects of the Hermetic tradition formed the “Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn,” or “GD.” This was an elitist and secret organization up until the publication of a version (or interpretation) of the system by Aleister Crowley. This was later clarified and republished in the authentic Golden Dawn format by Israel Regardie. Crowley was a ‘protestant’ and left with the teachings of the Golden Dawn to form his own Masonic organization, “OTO,” the “Ordo Templi Orientis.”

The neo-Druids (and neo-Masons for that matter) emerged into the public eye in the year 1717 in England. In terms of a true lineage traced on paper, this is where most of the modern traditions and organizations can truly be traced. Only after the end of the Dark Ages do both the ‘Ancient Order of Druids’ and the ‘Ancient Order of Freemasonry’ publicly emerges in England. From there they spread across the word in some revival form. Many scholars viewed (and continue to view) these reconstructionists as completely without grounds and call(ed) them frauds. This continued through much of the 1900s as well, and although allegedly having past through an era of “Enlightenment,” Humans have still been subjected to the same ignorance. Both the Renaissance era and the modern “New Age” saw a revival in the examination of old ideas forgotten and repressed.

The solitary folk and family traditions did not have the same ties to the more organized revivals throughout the Dark Ages and after. In addition, it has only been for the last hundred years that the folk-hereditary magickal practitioners have had access to neo-Druidry, and the GD Ceremonialism of Medieval and Renaissance sorcery. This fueled the emergence of “Wicca” in the modern “New Age.” For the first time in over a thousand years, a mystical Nature-oriented religion could exist in the public eye. This new Keltoi-Norse eclectic Faerie Tradition was published openly and maintains organizations with open membership and access to all information and lore. It is particularly useful for those who do not already have some kind of access to the magickal tradition by blood lineage and heredity for themselves (independent of an instructor.) This could be interpreted as somewhat dangerous.

The pharaoh's daughter who was the mother of all Scots DIANE MACLEAN "From various writings of ancient chroniclers we deduce that the nation of the Scots is of ancient stock, taking its first beginning from the Greeks and those of the Egyptians."
- Walter Bower, Scotichronicon

WALTER Bower wrote his compendium of Scottish history, Scotichronicon, in the 1440s. This sweeping Latin text aimed to set down the history of the Scottish people from the earliest times – and by so doing to show what race of people we were.

He referenced his chronicle from ancient texts and oral history. What he recorded was astounding.

According to Bower, the Scottish people were not an amalgam of Picts, Scots and other European peoples, but were in fact Egyptians, who could trace their ancestry directly back to a pharaoh's daughter and her husband, a Greek king.

A replica of an Egyptian mask similar to that found with Tutankhamen.

The queen's name was Scota – from where comes the name Scotland. The Greek king was Gaythelos – hence Gaelic, and their son was known as Hiber – which gives us Hibernia.

Nor was Bower the first to propose such exalted lineage for the Scots. The story goes back further and was even included in The Declaration of Arbroath. This seminal document - written in 1320 by the Barons and noblemen of Scotland - was a letter imploring the Pope to intervene on their behalf during the Wars of Independence. The text refers to "the ancients" who "journeyed from Greater Scythia … and the Pillars of Hercules … to their home in the west where they still live today".

According to tradition, this royal family was expelled from Egypt during a time of great uprising. They sailed west, settling initially in Spain before travelling to Ireland and then on to the west coast of Scotland. This same race of people eventually battled and triumphed over the Picts to become the Scots – the people who united this country.

Few historians have taken the story to be anything more than a verbose bit of Middle Ages origin story-spinning, created by a nation who needed to prove that they were of ancient stock.

"Most political entities [in medieval times] try and trace the origin of their race back into biblical times," says Steve Boardman, lecturer in Scottish history at Edinburgh University. "It was a way of asserting the natural existence of the kingdom of the Scots."

But now a new book, Scota, Egyptian Queen of the Scots, by Ralph Ellis, claims to prove that this origin myth was no made-up story but the actual recording of an Egyptian exodus that did indeed conclude in Scotland.

In tracing the sources that could have influenced the Declaration and Bower's Scotichronicon, he finds that the main British reference was likely to be the eighth-century historian Nennius. But it is in tracing Nennius's sources that Ellis thinks he's found the answer.

He believes that that the originator of the Scota Gaythelos story was an ancient text, The History of Egypt, written in 300BC by an Egypto-Greek historian called Manetho.

From Ireland it was a short hop across the water as later Iberian "Egyptians" seeking a new homeland in Ireland were told to populate Scotland. This colony became so successful that eventually many of the original Irish "Scots" then moved across too.

It all seems exceptionally compelling. Who's to say that just because it's unlikely it isn't actually possible? Well, most historians for one. Boardman says of Ellis's research that to "search for historical figures is just madness. It's never going to work". He concludes, that much as medieval Scots – and clearly present-day ones too – would like to believe in these ancient roots there isn't much chance that it is true.

"Because of our training we never like to say a definitive no," says Boardman. "But as far as I could, I would say that it is all nonsense."

In 1955, archaeologist Dr. Sean O’Riordan of Trinity College, Dublin, made an interesting discovery during an excavation of the Mound of Hostages at Tara, site of ancient kingship of Ireland. Bronze Age skeletal remains were found of what has been argued to be a young prince, still wearing a rare necklace of faience beads, made from a paste of minerals and plant extracts that had been fired.

The skeleton was carbon dated to around 1350 BC. In 1956, J. F. Stone and L. C. Thomas reported that the faience beads were Egyptian: “In fact, when they were compared with Egyptian faience beads, they were found to be not only of identical manufacture but also of matching design.

The famous boy-king Tutankhamun was entombed around the same time as the Tara skeleton and the priceless golden collar around his mummy’s neck was inlaid with matching conical, blue-green faience beads”. An almost identical necklace was found in a Bronze Age burial mound at north Molton, Devon.

Myths of the dragon Princess Scota relate her to the royal Irish and Scottish lines. She is claimed by the Dragon Lineage. According to Bower’s manuscript, Scota’s descendants were the high kings of Ireland. ‘Scota' is not an Egyptian name, but Bower’s manuscript says Scota’s father is actually named Achencres, a Greek version of an Egyptian name. In the work of Manetho, an Egyptian priest, Evans discovers the translation of the name—the pharaoh Achencres was none other than Akhenaten, who reigned in the correct timeframe of 1350 BC.

Evans believes that Scota was Meritaten, eldest daughter of Akhenaten and Nefertiti. The third eldest daughter, Ankhesenpaaten, married her half-brother, King Tutankhamun, son of Akhenaten and his secondary wife, Kiya. The controversial religious shift to the god Aten caused conflict with the Amun priesthood, who reasserted their authority after Akhenaten’s reign ended and he disappeared from history. This conflict and the rumored deaths by plague would have been sufficient motivation for the pharaoh’s eldest daughter to accept a foreign prince in marriage, rather than being Tut’s wife as would have been normal protocol, and to flee from the conflicted country.

Thomas reported that the faience beads were Egyptian: “In fact, when they were compared with Egyptian faience beads, they were found to be not only of identical manufacture but also of matching design. The famous boy-king Tutankhamun was entombed around the same time as the Tara skeleton and the priceless golden collar around his mummy’s neck was inlaid with matching conical, blue-green faience beads”. An almost identical necklace was found in a Bronze Age burial mound at north Molton, Devon.

In Kingdom of the Ark, Lorraine Evans reveals plausible archaeological connections and evidence between Egypt and Ireland. In 1937 in North Ferriby, Yorkshire, the remains of an ancient boat were discovered. Excavation produced what was thought a Viking longship yet more boats were much older than Viking ships and were of a type found in the Mediterranean. They originated 2000 years before the Viking age and were radiocarbon dated to around 1400 to 1350 BC. Evans argues these boats could originate from Egypt, based on dating of the faience beads. While investigating the origins of the people of Scotland in the Bower manuscript, the Scotichronicon, she discovers the story of Scota, the Egyptian princess and daughter of a pharaoh who fled from Egypt with her husband Gaythelos with a large following of people who arrive in a fleet of ships. They settled in Scotland for a while amongst the natives, until they were forced to leave and landed in Ireland, where they formed the Scotti, and their kings became the high kings of Ireland. In later centuries, they returned to Scotland, defeating the Picts, and giving Scotland its name.

What happens to Scota and her people? Irish myth claims the Tuatha de Danaan, the magical children of the Goddess Danu "originally established the site of Tara, in the Boyne river valley, as the ritual inauguration and burial place of the ancient kings of Ireland. They were generally regarded as the gods and goddesses of the "Celtic" tribes, but it is believed that their true origins date far back into prehistory”. Could the de Danaan even perhaps have been the descendants of the lost land of Atlantis, migrants to Ireland after its final destruction, between 7-10,000 years ago?

Further compounding the mystery, Michael Tsarion offers the revisionist view that Scota was returning to the Western land of Egyptian origins. Was the Irish/Egyptian connection a two-way street? Civilization may have spread into Europe from the West as well as the East. The religion of the Druids parallels the ancient Egyptians. Their name is linked to the word 'door' or portal and 'bringer of truth."

"The Caucasian features described by Sir Elliot Smith are to be seen on the face of Queen Nefertiti, her sister Mutnodjmet (wife of Pharaoh Heremheb), and her daughter Meritaten (Scota). Indeed, there is little doubt in our minds that Nefertiti and her family were of Irish ancestry. This explains why Scota, her eldest daughter, traveled to Ireland by way of Spain after the fall of Akhenaton's corrupt dynasty and why her grave was found, not in Egypt, but in Ireland's County Kerry." ("Irish Origins of Civilzation")

In the Annals of the Four Masters, dating to 1632-36, Scota’s husband is named Eremon, and it is Eremon and Eber who divide the land of Ireland between them, with Eremon in the north and Eber in the south. Egypt was divided into Upper and Lower Egypt, unified by a central connecting city, Memphis. If we consider the existing myths of Ireland’s legends, it, too, was divided to have a central site of unity, known as Mide, the omphalos of Ireland. Within Mide is where the Hill of Tara is situated, as a site of the High Kingship, representing the unity of the land and all of its people.

Sadly, it is in the battle for Ireland at Slieve Mish, as recorded in the Lebor Gabala, that Scota meets a tragic end and is killed. After her death in this battle, the war continued on at Tailtinn against the three kings of the Tuatha de Danaan, the husbands of the Goddesses Banba, Fodla, and Eriu: MacCuill, MacCeacht, and MacGreine. The sons of Mil, after prolonged battle, conquered the de Danaans and took the seat of Tara. According to the Bower manuscript, Scota was buried “between Sliab Mis and the sea,” and her grave, Fert Scota, is found in a glen located in Glenscota. The exact location of Scota’s resting place remains a mystery, much like the particulars of her past. She lent her persona and identity to the landscape of the land she became a part of, giving Scotland her name.

Scota: Namesake of Scotland

by Glenn Kimball

There is another critical reason the Kolbrin Bible ancientmanuscripts.com has such a pristine story of the Exodus of Moses. The story of Moses in England comes from a firsthand-eyewitness of the Exodus. However, to understand the source one must return to the time of Moses and locate the people who carried it to England.

By the time of the birth of Jesus the world had accumulated a wealth of prophecy about the coming of the Messiah. The stories had been told and retold for thousands of years to the point where they had been colored by culture, tradition and time. Jesus came into the world like a match to an already existing powder keg and exploded onto the human scene like the cataclysms of old. Each culture, tradition and geographic division integrated the story of Jesus and the Bible to merge into their individual beliefs and ancient traditions. The explosive entry of Jesus into the world didn’t function like the amalgamation it should have been. It didn’t bring people together. It didn’t gather traditions into a common pool for reassessment and realignment. It actually separated the world farther from each other. By the time of the Nicene Council, three hundred years after the death of Jesus, there were more Christian religions than there are today. In addition the history of Jesus had merged with every single culture and religion on the earth. Jesus became the greatest of the Buddha’s in the East, the prophet of Judaism and Hinduism, and the great prophet of Mohamed. Jesus became the fare-skinned prophet of the Americas and the hometown hero for the descendants of the Druid/Magi fraternity in Western Europe.

Emperor Constantine We have to thank Catholicism and the British born and educated Caesar Constantine for institutionalizing the life of Jesus in our Holy Bible, though he admittedly didn’t send out an edict to gather the story of Jesus from the four corners of the world. That was his greatest mistake. Had Constantine not institutionalized the life of Jesus the history of Jesus would be even more fragmented today. Constantine wasn’t a convert from Roman-based paganism. He was the descendant of Bishop Linus who had lived in Rome and returned to Britain to be the first bishop of the Culdean-based Christians in the first Century. (See “Drama of the Lost Disciples”

http://www.ancientmanuscripts.com/books/drama.htm" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; ) Constantine had been preconditioned to Christian conversion by the traditions of his ancestors in England. He eventually merged the two Roman Caesarships back together as one and moved the capital of the Roman Empire to Constantinople for a very important reason. Constantinople was both the gateway to the silk trade routes to the Far East and the crossroads of the story of Jesus from East and West. It made more sense to establish Christianity at the crossroads of tradition rather than to leave it in Rome where Christians had been persecuted or in his homeland in England where the British Christians dominated the story of Jesus for three hundred years after Jesus’ death. (See “Celt Druid and Culdee” http://www.ancientmanuscripts.com/books/celt.htm" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; ) The British Culdee were the legitimate first above ground Christians after the death of Jesus. Christianity was first launched from Britain and her Christian following and not from Jerusalem or Rome.

Did Moses Influence The British Isles In His Day?

One of the very first biblical influences in Britain came at the time of Moses. According to an encyclopedic account of Scottish history, Pharaoh's daughter Scota in the time of Moses (1300 BC) married one of Judah's sons and traveled to Ireland in search of a place to settle. The couple was given land by the Irish king. The land became known as Scotland in honor of Scota.

Arthur C. Clark - Ireland's Cleopatra

“Does the blood of Egyptian pharaohs run through Irish veins today? Did an Irish Cleopatra lead a Gaelic army into battle in County Kerry? Is that her tomb over there across the stream? That hoary stone sunk into the ground amid the gorse in Foley's Glen?...

According to some sources, the story of Ireland's Egyptian princess dates back to 1700 B.C. when, says T.J. Barrington in Discovering Kerry, Gads - "with their iron spears" - invaded Ireland from Spain to avenge the death of a clansman who had gone over from Spain to explore Ireland and had been killed by the inhabitants. Those who organized this expedition were from the family of Miles, or Milesius, depending on the source consulted. Miles - a word meaning "soldier" in Latin - was a member of a warlike, aristocratic Gaelic family in Spain, with roots in Scythia, an area northwest of the Black Sea, now in the U.S.S.R. One source says Miles was "supposedly descended from Scythian nobles who had been expelled from Egypt and settled in Iberia [Spain]." Another, The History of Ireland to the Coming of Henry II, by Arthur Ua Clerigh notes that when Miles grew up "he went on his wanderings (from Spain) first to Scythia... and afterwards to Egypt where he married Scota (Scota ) the daughter of the Pharaoh Nectonibus."

Back in Spain, Scota bore Miles six sons. But then Miles, on the eve of his invasion of Ireland to avenge his uncle's death, died and his mantle fell on the shoulders of his Egyptian princess. Like Cleopatra, another renowned Egyptian woman, Scota did not shirk her responsibilities: with her six sons, and two other of Miles' sons from another union, she set out in a fleet of 30 ships some time about 1300 B.C.

Casualties, writes Barrington, were incurred almost immediately. "As they sailed westward, Erannan, the youngest of the sons, climbed the mast first to see Ireland, but fell and was drowned ...Ir, a third son, was rowing so hard that his oar snapped and he fell back into the boat and died..."

The fleet sailed on, however, and three days later landed at Kenmare Bay in County Kerry. The Gaels fought their way to Tara, their enemy's capital and, later, the place where the High Kings of Ireland were crowned.

There, they demanded surrender or battle - but got neither. Somehow, the enemy got the Gaels to withdraw in their fleet and while they were offshore a tempest sank many ships and drowned most of the surviving sons.

Enraged at their losses, the remaining Gaels beached their craft on the north shore of the beautiful Dingle Peninsula and the army began to march through the foothills of the Slieve Mish Mountains, hard by Ireland's Atlantic coast and not far from the present city of Tralee. It was there, in the most ferocious battle with the inhabitants, that the Gaelic invaders lost their Egyptian princess. "In yon cool glen, beside the mount, close by the wave," says one 17th-century poet, "fell Scota while pursuing the enemy across the hills."Though Scotad early in the fray, her forces went on to victory and it is she that is remembered. Says Thomas I. O'Sullivan in his 1931 Romantic Hidden Kerry, "Though she failed to stay the career of the foe, she died and gave her name to the land, for our island was Scota long before it was known as Hibernia."…

On the other hand, even modern scholars leave a bit of room for those of us with imagination… It is certainly true, moreover, that the Gaels did come to Ireland by the Late Bronze Age, and that they did bring with them the skills of iron-mongering. And some of the dates and names in the legend do accord with some of the accepted history of both Ireland and Egypt.

Though Scota's father, for instance, is called the "Pharaoh Nectonibus" by Ua Clerigh in his 1910 Irish history, a name not to be found among the lists of ancient Egyptian kings, his name bears a striking resemblance to those of two much later rulers: Nectanebo I and Nectanebo II, described by Martha Ross in Rulers and Governments of the World as "among the last Egyptian Pharaohs."

These rulers, moreover, "made attempts to gain Greek alliances" to stave off invaders from the East. It is not beyond the realm of possibility, therefore, to suggest that they could have also made alliances with the Scythians who, in the preceding centuries, had penetrated the Middle East as far as Palestine, and thus were on Egypt's border.

In A Folk Register, A History of Ireland in Verse, contemporary historian

The day of poets and iron men
Had dawned, and with a clang...
Long had they coursed, the sons of Mil
From Scythia's Black Sea shore,
Goidels (Gaels) who journeyed to fulfill
Their destiny of yore...

Extract from the book - "The Roots and Blood of the Scots"

An Overview From The Gaelic Annals (1500 BC To 2000 AD)

Around 1500 BC, in the Middle East there lived a man, one the Gaelic annals called "Fenius Farsa". He was born to be a "Prince of his people". Alas his twin brother was chosen before him, so although the elder of the two he decided that it would be wise to leave his homeland for greener pastures.

Five sons were born to Fenius Farsa. Two of these sons and their families followed the middle-aged patriarch on his travels. Leaving the area of the Middle East, this close knit tribe of family and servants migrated North to the area known as "Ancient Scythia". Finding either the climate too harsh, or the Scythians too warlike, the tribe of Fenius Farsa traveled South again to the warmer waters of the Aegean and the Ionian Seas. They settled in this area of Greece for a short period until hostilities with neighbouring tribes forced them to leave the mainland for the safety of the island of Crete.

Here in Crete, Fenius Farsa's tribe began to train themselves to be a band of mighty and powerful warriors, for if they were to survive as a tribe, they would have to defend themselves or face slavery.

It was in Crete, the ancient annals say, that Gaythelos, the grandson of Fenius Farsa became known as a great warrior and leader of a formidable force of mercenaries. His renown as a "Fighting Prince" gained the attention of the Pharaoh of Egypt, who hired Gaythelos and his mercenary force to fight his wars in the South and East of Egypt. Over the years Gaythelos became victorious and was appointed the Commanding General of the Egyptian army.

Meanwhile more and more of Fenius Farsa's people left Crete to enlist and bask in the amazing favor and wealth of the Egyptians. Eventually the majority of the tribe left Crete altogether to enjoy the pleasures and comforts of the worlds richest nation. So successful were Gaythelos and his forces in his wars for Egypt that Pharaoh rewarded him with his daughter's hand in marriage. The Egyptian Princess called Scota and her husband Gaythelos (Mil) were to have a tremendous influence on their people - the family and tribe of Fenius Farsa that had migrated from their ancient homeland in the Middle East. It was from the Princess Scota that the very root (etymon) of the tribal name Scot is derived, and it was the great-great-grandson of Scota who would call himself Heber Scot. (Eber is the father of Peleg and Joktan the biblical origins of all Hebrew nations) He was the prince and leader of his tribe at the time his people took on the tribal name Scot. It was from her husband's name Gaythelos or Gadelius that the people derived the name Gael.... So it was from this union of a warrior Prince from Crete and an Egyptian Princess that a national name was born.

The Scots Gael

There are many motives put forward by different historians for the migration of Prince Gaythelos, Princess Scota and their people from the land of Egypt. We will allow the readers to choose their own preferences as we present the differing records later, however migration was in the air again as this now sizeable tribe set sail for a new homeland. This time their destiny would lead them to the Iberian Peninsula - the area of Spain and Portugal today - where they were to settle and call home for the next 19 generations. Interestingly it is said that the root (etymon) of Portugal comes from Port Of Gael!

It was here that Heber Scot would reign as Prince over his warrior tribe of Scots Gaels - and warriors they had to stay to survive, as they were surrounded by hostile nations and tribes all hungry for more and more land.

The Scots Gaels proved they were a formidable fighting machine. It was this trait and tenacity that saved them from being consumed in the next 19 generations in Iberia. Thus they survived as an independent tribe and called themselves "Scots Gaels".

After many centuries in Spain and Portugal a Bard of the Scots prophesied another migration of the people to a Western Isle guarded by a great ocean. Stirred by the Bard's vision and the need to find safer shores, another relocation was set in motion, it had become a constant battle for survival as mightier tribes came to contest for the best parts of the land of Iberia.

Around 600 BC warriors were sent by ship to look for this Western Isle and after weeks of searching through stormy and dangerous seas the Scots expeditionary party found an "Island" West of the British Isles. They navigated the length and breadth of the Island and ventured up the rivers and finding little opposition, this they duly reported on their return to Port of Gael in Iberia.

During this period the Scots Gael's "Royal Prince" was Mycelius or Mile, and upon hearing the reports he sent some of his sons to conquer the island for the Scots. How long it took we cannot be sure, but Irish folklore and legend has much to say about the conquest of "The Gods" by "The Mortals". It seems the Irish saw these invading Scots as "lesser" and "mortal" due to their "barbarian" tendencies.

There are records of many battles but eventually the prophecy came to pass and the Scots Gaels became rulers of a new "Island Home" that they would call Erin or Ireland. The Romans would call it "Scota" (Scotland) because the "Scotti" ruled as High Kings over the local tribe of Tuatha De Danaan Celts (Irish).

The Scots In Ireland 600 BC to 500 AD

The Stone of DestinyThe Scots Gaels were to stay in their new Homeland of Ireland as Overlords and High Kings ruling over the subdued Celts (Tuatha De Danaan) for over 900 years. Once more in this new land significant events would occur that would influence the role and the blood of the Scots nation. Around 600 BC the first High King of Ireland was the Scots Prince Eochaidh The Heremon (Heremon means High King). It was his eventual marriage to the Jewish Princess Tamar Tea Tephi that would heal the breach between two ancient Royal Dynasties, bringing together the blood that was to flow in later British Royals. (Tea Tephi was the illustrious ancestor of Jesus himself) It was also their marriage and reign that began the ancient Tara Dynasty Of Gaelic (Scots) Royalty that would sit on the Stone of Destiny (Lia Fail) ruling over all Ireland.

With the blood of Jew and Scot mixed in this Royal couple the Lion Rampant took on its full meaning (although modern historians believe that the Lion Rampant dates back to William the Lion. The Lion Rampant was the Royal Standard for both Royal Dynasties. About 900 years later this same Scots Dynasty and their Scots Gael people readied themselves for another migration (shows why you find Scots in every part of the earth today - that same desire for migration seems to have been helped along by the marauding Vikings as they started to penetrate deeper and deeper into the Irish Mainland).

Dalriata To Dalriada

From Ulster (Dalriata) the Scots began to colonize the West Coast of North Britain which they called Dalriada (the valley or plain of Red Hair). The Scots found this a safer shore as the local Celts (Romans called them Picts or Caledonians) were friendly towards the Scots. This was due to the fact that many hundreds of years before these same Celts, who had arrived from Europe in their ships, had wanted to settle in Ireland but the Scots of Ireland would not allow them in. The Scots advised them to settle in the Northern parts of the British Mainland. These Celts (or Picts) had another problem. They had not brought any women folk with them; so the cunning Scots suggested they would supply them with wives on condition that they trace their Royal Dynasty through the female line; this the Celts agreed to. They sailed to the North of Britain with their Scots wives where they settled and multiplied, becoming masters of the major area of North Britain. So it was to the friendly shores of the north of Britain that the Scots from Ireland emigrated.

Stone Of Destiny Leaves Ireland

It was in 506 AD that Fergus The Great, King of Scots raised his Lion Rampant standard on the shores of his new land and to seal it as the New Scota he brought over the famous crowning stone of the Scots Gaels - Lia Fail (the Stone of Destiny). Nearly 300 years later the Scots Gaels of Dalriada and the Picts or Caledonians of Albany united to form the Kingdom of Scots, their common land Scota or Scotland. The Scots Gaels had reached their destiny. This was to be the land where they would put down their roots and defend with all their might. Many times their sovereignty and independence would be tested by Viking and English but again and again the Scots would fight for survival as a nation and kingdom.

Home At Last

The Scots and their forefathers traveled from the Middle East through Scythia, Greece, Crete, Egypt, Spain, Ireland and finally settled down in the North of Britain, which they called Scotland or Alba. Joseph of Arimathea was referred to as the “Merchant of Alban” from the “Apocryphal Acts of Thomas” ancientmanuscripts.com.

It was from this homeland of Scotland that millions of Scots would leave for foreign lands either individually or with families throughout the years, but not again as an entire nation - the Scots had a "home" at last.

The Royal Family’s Genealogy

It is common knowledge that the HEIR to the British throne, Prince Charles, and his late wife Princess Diana, have one common ancestor (not an English King as the Tudor line died out with Elizabeth I of England) but in fact a Scots King who united the Island into Great Britain. We all know he was JAMES VI of Scotland later crowned JAMES I of Great Britain. (It was through his daughter Elizabeth Stewart that our present Royalty has its blood line). It is only through the line of Scots Kings that we can trace the thread of history into the ancient past and pierce through the mists of time to reveal who is who.

Egyptian tycoon Mohamed al Fayed, owner of Harrods and father to Dodi, Princess Diana’s companion in their fatal 1997 car crash, has listed his ten favorite books on the Manchester Guardian’s website. One of them is “The Scotichronicon: A History Book for Scots,” described simply as “Scotland’s debt to Egypt revealed at last.”

In 1296, King Edward I (Long Shanks) removed the Scots symbols of royalty and nationality, including the famous Stone of Scone or Lia Fail. In his rage against the independent minded Scots Long Shanks removed a prophecy in Latin and Gaelic from the Lia Fail or stone of destiny. But the text was preserved in secret and it was rhymed in the Saxon tongue by Sir Walter Scott:

STONE OF DESTINY

In 1296, King Edward I (Long Shanks) removed the Scots symbols of royalty and nationality, including the famous Stone of Scone or Lia Fail. In his rage against the independent minded Scots Long Shanks removed a prophecy in Latin and Gaelic from the Lia Fail or stone of destiny. But the text was preserved in secret and it was rhymed in the Saxon tongue by Sir Walter Scott:

Unless the prophets faithless be
and the Seer’s words be vain
Where’re is found this sacred stone
The Scottish race shall reign!

In 1292 John Balliol became the last king to use the Stone in Scotland. Edward I of England took it and other important relics of nationhood and placed it in Westminster Abbey. It remained there for the next 700 years, a part of the throne of Edward the Confessor on which all new sovereigns sit during their coronation. The last time it was used was at the coronation of HM The Queen in 1953. It was finally returned to Edinburgh Castle, Scotland in 1996.

The 2000 acres (3 1/2 x 1 miles) with temperate but unpredictable weather, embodying the darkness and mystery of the Golden Age, is an ancient historical seat of learning, healing, and religion. There is still much to learn from her. To have a piece of the island is considered lucky; I have such a crystalline stone -- a talismanic Druid's Egg (anguimum) or Serpent's Egg -- that perfectly fits my hand, to cherish as a connection to my ancestral land, the Earth and cosmos. I hold it now, listening to its ancient resonance. Other serpent's eggs may be of green serpentine. Here is a piece for you, a fractal hologram of eternity from beyond these shores. The pieces of Iona are seemingly infinite.

Teia Tephi brought the Stone with her from Jerusalem in 583 B.C. All of the kings of Ireland descended from her and Eochaidh were crowned on the Stone, right up to Muircheartach (Murdoch) son of Earc, who was Columba's uncle.

HISTORY OF THE DRUIDS: http://books.google.com/books?id=zrnUAA ... eBLOODLINE" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; OF THE HOLY GRAIL

By Laurence Gardiner

The Stone Of Destiny

"Not only were the Grail Knights and Templars appointed Guardians of the Stewart Sangreal [Holy Grail] in Scotland, they also became protectors of the Stone of Destiny (the Stone of Scone). This most sacred of Scots treasures had been brought to Scotland from Ireland by Fergus Mor mac Erc, the first King of Dalriada, in the 5th century, having originally been carried to Ireland from Judah in about 586 BC. The venerated holy relic was said to be the Stone of the Covenant, known as 'Jacob's Pillow' (Genesis 28:18-22), on which Jacob laid his head and saw the ladder reaching up to Heaven at Beth-el. In a dream God promised Jacob that his seed would generate the line of kingship to follow -- the line which in due course became the Davidic succession.

"When the Jews were persecuted by Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon, Mattaniah, the son of King Josiah (and a direct descendant of David), was installed in Judah. Known as King Zedekiah, he acceded to the throne of Jerusalem in 598 BC. Twelve years later Jerusalem fell to Nebuchadnezzar, whereupon Zedekiah was taken to Babylon and blinded (Jer. 39:6-7, 52:10-11). His sons were murdered, but his daughter Tamar was removed to Ireland (via Egypt and Spain) by the prophet Jeremiah. He also brought the anointed Stone of the Covenant, which became known as Lia Fail (Stone of Destiny). In Latin it was the Saxum Fatale.

"Princess Tamar (Teamhair) gave her name to Tara, the seat of the High Kings of Ireland, and she married Ard Ri (High King) Eochaid, ancestor of Ugaine Mar (Ugaine the Great). Subsequently, over a millenium, Eochaid's successors were

crowned in the presence of the sacred Stone. The Irish heritage then progressed to Scotland, where the relic of Judah became synonymous with the Kings of Dalriada. King Kenneth ( MacAlpin (844-859) later moved the Stone to Scone Abbey when he united the Scots and the Picts. By the time of William the Lion (d. 1214), the Stone of Destiny bore witness to nearly a hundred coronations in sovereign descent from King Zedekiah.

"On declaring himself Overlord of Scotland in 1296, Edward I of England stole what he thought was the Stone of Destiny. What he actually got was a piece of sandstone from a monastery doorway, which has since rested beneath the Coronation Throne at Westminster Abbey. This piece of rubble is 26 inches long by 11 inches deep (c. 66x 28 cm) and weighs about 335 lbs (c. 152 kg). Royal seals of the early Scots kings depict a much larger installation rock, but this rock was not the sacred Stone of Destiny -- no more than is the medieval masonry prize of King Edward. The real Stone of Destiny is said to be smaller, more naturally rounded, and is of inscribed black basalt, not of hand-cut sandstone. It was hidden by the Cistercian Abbot of Scone in 1296, and it has remained hidden ever since. The Columbian tradition tells us that, on secreting the Stone, the Abbot prophesied that one day 'The Michael' would return to his inheritance. It is of importance to note that the X sign, which became so hated by the Roman Church, was identified with the archangel Michael (Melchizedek) onwards from Old Testament times. The heritage of St Michael was the dynasty of high Zadok priests -- a heritage that prevailed in the continuing Messianic line." (BLOODLINE OF THE HOLY GRAIL, Gardiner, Element Books Ltd., 1996, pp. 297-299)

Among the Grail romances, the most famous is "Parzival" composed by Wolfram von Eschenbach. In this mystical poem, the Grail is identified as a Stone upon which appear inscribed the names of the heirs of the throne of Jesus, typified by the phoenix, which will rise again and restore the inheritance of the Merovingian bloodline:

"You say you yearn for the Grail. You foolish man, I am grieved to hear that. For no man can ever win the Grail unless he is known in heaven and called by name to the Grail. This I must tell you about the Grail, for I know it to be so and have seen it for myself...By the power of that Stone the phoenix burns to ashes, but the ashes give him life again. Thus does the phoenix moult and change its plumage, which afterward is bright and shining and as lovely as before...Such power does the Stone give a man that flesh and bones are at once made young again. The Stone is also called the Grail. This very day there comes to it a message wherein lies its greatest power. Today is Good Friday, and they await there a Dove, winging down from heaven. It brings a small white wafer, and leaves it upon the Stone... Hear now how those who are called to the Grail are made known. On the Stone, round the edge, appear letters inscribed, giving the name and the lineage of each one, maid or boy, who is to make the blessed journey. No one needs to rub out the inscription, for once he has read the name, it fades before his eyes." (HOLY BLOOD, HOLY GRAIL, p. 297, SPEAR OF DESTINY, Trevor Ranvenscroft, pp. 191-2)

It is interesting that BLOODLINE OF THE HOLY GRAIL mentions the someone of lineage of Michael the Archangel who will one day inherit the throne as "The Michael." The forward to this book is written by Prince Michael Stewart of Albany who, the authors contend may be the legitimate heir to the throne of England (the Stewarts claim to be related to the British Stuarts) and heir to the throne of David through the purported Merovingian lineage of Jesus Christ. Prince Michael of Albany may also be "The Michael" who was prophesied by the Abbot of Scone to receive his inheritance, supposedly being in the lineage of Melchizedek and the Zadok priests, and Michael the Archangel himself!

The STEWART CLAN INTERNET page on the "Stone of Destiny" includes this very interesting interpretation of Ezekiel 37:22

"And I will make them *one nation* (one stick, one people) in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king (Christ) shall be king to them *all* (Shiloh; Whose right the Stone of Destiny represents): and they shall be no more two nations (two sticks), neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all:" Can Christ be a King over anything except people? These two sticks being joined are specifically used to remind the descendants of Israel, even today, that they will yet be reunited into one nation -- a single people -- in the original land given to Abraham!

"So, this movement of the Stone of Destiny could very well be the beginning of a chain of events to shape the world -- and prepare His remnant today -- for the things about to come to pass; the false Messiah shall come first and try to fake uniting the people (Daniel 9:27) under the promised covenant of peace, but he will fail. He will pass himself off as Israel's Messiah, and Christianity's Christ."

- end quote -

In Daniel 12:1, Michael is called "the great prince" --

"And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book."

Will Prince Michael Stewart of Albany come forward (stand up) as the lineal descendant of Jesus Christ and the apotheosis of Michael the Archangel who defeats "Christianity's Christ" who will "fake uniting the people...under the promised covenant of peace"? In BLOODLINE OF THE HOLY GRAIL, is found in the centerfold a picture of the Phoenix with this caption: "The day of fulfillment when the DRAGON is slain and the PHOENIX shall rise." [Caps mine]

According to HOLY BLOOD, HOLY GRAIL, early Christian sects such as the Waldensians, Albigenses and Cathars were occult groups similar to the Priory of Sion and for this reason suffered the persecutions of the Catholic Church. The authors identify the Christian Church as the Catholic Church, which the Priory despises and has determined to destroy in revenge for the martyrdom of Jacques de Molay, the last Grand Master of the Priory.

In BLOODLINE OF THE HOLY GRAIL, the authors stated:

"Fragments of the Prince Melchizedek Document found among the Dead Sea Scrolls indicate that Melchizedek and Michael were one and the same. It is this representation which features in the Revelation when the Archangel Michael (the descending Zadokite power of the Messiah) fights with the ROMAN DRAGON of oppression." [Caps mine] (p. 177)

The caption under the Stewart Crest of the Phoenix on the Scottish Stewart Clan Home page reads: "Courage gains strength from a wound." Is the Rosicrucian Priory of Sion "the beast which had the wound by a sword, and did live"? (see Rev. 13:3, 12, 14) This also explains Rev. 17:16: "And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire." Revelation 18 proceeds to describe the destruction of Mystery Babylon which Rev. 17:9 reveals as "sitting on seven mountains" or Rome.

Fritz Springmeier states in his book, TOP 13 ILLUMINATI BLOODLINES: "The 13th bloodline lacks nothing to bring forth their Anti-Christ who will appear to have all the correct credentials. I would not even be surprised if their Anti-Christ, in order to appear real, will expose another Anti-Christ." (p. 229)

We must not underestimate the importance of the Priory of Sion, the elite order of Rosicrucians who now claim to be the authors of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion. Authors of HOLY BLOOD, HOLY GRAIL state that the Protocols "in their present form" are a radically altered form of the original, which was authored by the Order of the Rose Croix and not intended as anti-Semitic propaganda. Rather than the revised document which Hitler used to vilify the Jews, the Priory would now have the world believe that it was originally a humanitarian proposal to reorder society under a benign priest-king of the lineage of Jesus Christ.

Finally the authors of the New Age Grail books thoroughly discredit the Christian New Testament and argue that the Gnostic Nag Hammadi Scrolls predated it and are therefore more authentic. Upon reading the Grail books, one discovers the massive indoctrination in occult lore which is taking place on a worldwide scale. The Scottish Stewart Clan Home Page and the Toronto/Pensacola Revival are now introducing their mythology into the church.

Spiritwind, this has got to be one of the most interesting & detailed finds on our forum.

I used to be so curious about the Tuatha de Danaan after reading Tolkien.... yikes.. your research explains a TON of separate things that I did not realize were related.

Many Scottish people feel tied to the landmarks in Egypt and understand what the objects are for, but did not realize they were genetically related to the original people who lived there prior to the civil war between Northern & southern kingdoms.

Thank you for finding & sharing this treasure trove of collected research. I need to read maybe 2 of the later middle posts but read the first 3 and at least the last 1.

There is more from the website in the above posts, but ran across this little piece of supporting evidence from, surprisingly, Wikipedia.

In 1975 the mummy of Rameses II was taken to France for preservation. The mummy was also forensically tested by Professor Pierre-Fernand Ceccaldi, the chief forensic scientist at the Criminal Identification Laboratory of Paris, who wrote: "Hair, astonishingly preserved, showed some complementary data - especially about pigmentation: Ramses II was a Red haired cymnotriche leucoderma", that is a fair-skinned person with wavy red hair.[27][28]

Here is more corroborating evidence about the early Egyptian mummies that have been found.


THE PREDYNASTIC AND MOST EARLY DYNASTIC EGYPTIANS WERE CAUCASOID-EUROPEANS

http://www.celticnz.co.nz/Nazca/Ancient ... ptians.htm" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
Prior to 2000-BC especially, Egyptians were of Caucasoid-European ethnicity. This is evidenced by the physical anthropology of oldest mummies found, as well as busts or statues of the Pharaohs and their wives, coloured wall paintings and descriptions in historical accounts. Beyond about 1500 BC the population became increasingly mixed with Nubians from the South of Egypt and present day Egyptians stem from this latter era admixture. The last few Pharaohs of Egypt were Nubians. Shabaka (721 to 706 BC) consolidated the Nubian Kingdom's control over all of Egypt from Nubia down to the Delta region.

The majority of the Caucasoid-European occupants of Egypt began to exodus the increasingly arid country as early as 5000 BC, preferring the verdant climes of Europe which had shed it's glaciers and was becoming increasingly more habitable over vast regions. The migrants left waymark trails out of Egypt, all along the seacoast of North Africa to the Pillars of Hercules, where they crossed the thin strip of water into Europe. They left their waymark trails up the coast of Spain and Portugal towards France and Scandinavia and these survived intact into the late 19th century. Those coming out of Egypt brought their harps, bagpipes, plinn rhythms, mathematics, measurements, astronomical knowledge, navigational knowledge and even the venerable Oak tree with them.

The same measurements that were used to build the Pyramids were also in use within Europe prior to 5000 BC. The thousands of large menhirs (obelisks) erected at Carnac and other areas of Brittany in France represent a huge library of mathematical information from Egypt. These French obelisk sites were built from as early as 5000 BC and contain the same information and using the same modus operandi (by way of distance and angle from hubstone positions to individual outer-marker components), as one finds at sites like Nazca in Peru.

In his book, The Innocents Abroad (1869) Mark Twain passed on the claim that the fuel for Egyptian trains “is composed of mummies three thousand years old, purchased by the ton or by the graveyard for that purpose'. This is also stated by A.J. Goldfinch & P.W.B. Semmens in their book, How Steam Locomotives Really Work, who claim that mummies were used for this purpose in Egypt during the 1850s. If this is so, then conceivably a huge amount of valuable anthropological information went up in flames with them.

Consider the following:

The mummy of the wife of King Tutankhamen has auburn hair.

A mummy with red hair, red mustache and red beard was found
by the pyramids at Saqqara.

Red-haired mummies were found in the crocodile-caverns of Aboufaida.

The book History of the Egyptian Mummies, mentions a mummy with reddish-brown hair.

The mummies of Rameses II and Prince Yuaa have fine silky yellow hair. The
mummy of another pharaoh, Thothmes II, has light chestnut-colored hair.

An article in a leading British anthropological journal states that many mummies have dark reddish-brownhair. Professor Vacher De Lapouge described a blond mummy found at Al Amrah, which he says has the face and skull measurements of a typical Gaul or Saxon.

A blond mummy was found at Kawamil along with many
chestnut-colored ones.

Chestnut-haired mummies have been found at Silsileh.

The mummy of Queen Tiy has "wavy brown hair."

Unfortunately, only the mummies of a very few pharaohs have survived to
the 20th century, but a large proportion of these are blond.

The Egyptians have left us many paintings and statues of blondes and redheads. Amenhotep III's tomb painting shows him as having light red hair. Also, his features are quite caucasian

A farm scene from around 2000 B.C. in the tomb of the nobleman
Meketre shows redheads.

An Egyptian scribe named Kay at Sakkarah around 2500 B.C. has blue eyes.

The tomb of Menna (18th Dynasty) at West Thebes shows blond girls.
The god Horus is usually depicted as white. He is very white in the Papyrus Book of the Dead of Lady Cheritwebeshet (21st Dynasty), found in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo.

A very striking painting of a yellow-haired man hunting from a chariot can be found in the tomb of Userhet, Royal Scribe of Amenophis II. The yellow-haired man is Userhet. The same tomb has paintings of blond soldiers. The tomb of Menna also has a wall painting showing a blond man supervising two
dark-haired workers scooping grain.

The Funerary stele (inscribed stone slab)of Priest Remi clearly shows him as having red hair,

The eye of Horus, the so-called Wedjat Eye. is always blue.

A very attractive painting is found on the wall of a private tomb in West Thebes from the 18th Dynasty. The two deceased parents are white people with black hair. Mourning them are two pretty fair-skinned girls with light blond hair and their red-haired older brother.

Queen Thi is painted as having a rosy complexion, blue eyes and blond hair. She was co-ruler with her husband Amenhotep III and it has been said of their rule. "The reign of Amenhotep III was the culminating point in Egyptian history, for never again, in spite of the exalted effort of the Ramessides, did Egypt
occupy so exalted a place among the nations of the world as she had in
his time."

Amenhotep III looks northern European in his statues.

Paintings of people with red hair and blue eyes were found at the tomb of Bagt in Beni Hassan. Many other tombs at Beni Hassan have paintings of individuals with blond and red hair as well as blue eyes.

Paintings of blonds and redheads have been found among the tombs at
Thebes.

Blond hair and blue eyes were painted at the tomb of
Pharaoh Menphtah in the valley of the Kings.

Paintings from the
Third Dynasty show native Egyptians with red hair and blue eyes.
They are shepherds, workers and bricklayers.

A blond woman was painted at the tomb of Djeser-ka-ra-seneb in Thebes.

A model of a ship from about 2500 B.C. is manned by five blond sailors.

The god Nuit was painted as white and blond.

A painting at the tomb of Meresankh III at Giza, from about 2485 B.C., shows white skin and red hair.

Two statues from about 2570 B.C., found in the tombs at Medum, show Prince Rahotep and his wife Nofret. He has light green stones for eyes. She has
violet-blue stones.

A painting from Iteti's tomb at Saqqara shows a very Nordic-looking man with blond hair.

Grafton Smith mentions the distinctly red hair of the 18th Dynasty mummy Henutmehet.

Harvard Professor Carleton Coon, in his book THE RACES OF EUROPE, tells us that "many of the officials, courtiers, and priests, representing the upper class of Egyptian society but not the royalty, looked strikingly like modern Europeans, especially long-headed ones." (Note: Nordics are long-headed.) Long-headed Europeans are most common in Britain, Scandinavia, the Netherlands, and northern Germany.

Time-Life books put out a volume called RAMESES II THE GREAT. It has a
good picture of the blond mummy of Rameses II. Another picture can be
found in the book X-RAYING THE PHARAOHS, especially the picture on the
jacket cover. It shows his yellow hair.

A book called CHRONICLE OF THE PHARAOHS was recently published showing paintings, sculptures and mummies of 189 pharaohs and leading personalities of Ancient Egypt. Of these, 102 appear European, 13 look Black, and the rest are hard to classify. All nine mummies look like our Europeans.

The very first pharaoh, Narmer, also known as Menes, looks very Caucasion

The same can be said for Khufu's cousin Hemon, who designed the Great Pyramid of Giza, with help from Imhotep. A computer-generated reconstruction of the face of the Sphinx shows a European-looking face.
It was once painted sunburned red. The Egyptians often painted
upper class men as red and upper class women as white; this is because
the men became sun-burned or tanned while outside under the burning Egyptian sun. The women, however, usually stayed inside.

In 1902, E. A. Wallis Budge, the renowned Egyptologist, described the pre-dynastic Egyptians thus:

"The predynastic Egyptians, that is to say, that stratum of them which was indigenous to North Africa, belonged to a white or light-skinned race with fair hair, who in many particulars resembled the Libyans, who in later historical times lived very near the western bank of the Nile." [E. A. W. Budge, Egypt in the Neolithic and Archaic Periods (London: Kegan Paul, Trench & Trübner, 1902), p. 49.]

Later, in the same book, Budge referred to a pre-dynastic statuette that: "has eyes inlaid with lapis-lazuli, by which we are probably intended to understand that the woman here represented had blue eyes." [Ibid., p. 51.]

In 1925, the Oxford don L. H. Dudley Buxton, wrote the following concerning ancient Egyptian crania:

"Among the ancient crania from the Thebaid in the collection in the Department of Human Anatomy in Oxford, there are specimens which must unhesitatingly be considered to be those of Nordic type. [L. H. D. Buxton, The Peoples of Asia (London: Kegan Paul, Trench & Trübner, 1925), p. 50.]

The Scottish physical anthropologist Robert Gayre has written, that in his considered opinion:

"Ancient Egypt, for instance, was essentially a penetration of Caucasoid racial elements into Africa . . . This civilisation grew out of the settlement of Mediterraneans, Armenoids, even Nordics, and Atlantics in North Africa . . ." [R. Gayre of Gayre, Miscellaneous Racial Studies, 1943-1972 (Edinburgh: Armorial, 1972), p. 85.]

When English archaeologist Howard Carter excavated the tomb of Tutankhamen in 1922, he discovered in the Treasury a small wooden sarcophagus. Within it lay a memento of Tutankhamen's beloved grandmother, Queen Tiye: "a curl of her auburn hair." [C. Desroches-Noblecourt, Tutankhamen: Life and Death of a Pharaoh (Harmondsworth: Penguin Books, 1972), p. 65.] (See mummy picture)

Queen Tiye (18th Dynasty), was the daughter of Thuya, a Priestess of the God Amun. Thuya's mummy, which was found in 1905, has long, red-blonde hair. Examinations of Tiye's mummy proved that she bore a striking resemblance to her mother. [B. Adams, Egyptian Mummies (Aylesbury: Shire Publications, 1988), p. 39.] (See mummy picture)

A painting of the mother of Pharaoh Amenhotep IV (18th Dynasty), reveals that she had blonde hair, blue eyes and a rosy complexion. [W. Sieglin, Die blonden Haare der indogermanischen Völker des Altertums (Munich: J. F. Lehmanns Verlag, 1935), p. 132.]

Princess Ranofri, a daughter of Pharaoh Tuthmosis III (18th Dynasty), is depicted as a blonde in a wall painting that was recorded in the 19th century, by the Italian Egyptologist Ippolito Rosellini. [Ibid., p. 132.]

In 1929 archaeologists discovered the mummy of fifty year-old Queen Meryet-Amun (another daughter of Tuthmosis III); the mummy has wavy, light-brown hair. [R. B. Partridge, Faces of Pharaohs (London: Rubicon Press, 1994), p. 91.]

American Egyptologist Donald P. Ryan excavated tomb KV 60, in the Valley of the Kings, during the course of 1989. Inside, he found the mummy of a royal female, which he believes to be the long-lost remains of the great Queen Hatshepsut (18th Dynasty). Ryan describes the mummy as follows:

"The mummy was mostly unwrapped and on its back. Strands of reddish-blond hair lay on the floor beneath the bald head." [Ibid., p. 87.]

Manetho, a Graeco-Egyptian priest who flourished in the 3rd century BC, wrote in his Egyptian History, that the last ruler of the 6th Dynasty was a woman by the name of Queen Nitocris. He has this to say about her:

"There was a queen Nitocris, braver than all the men of her time, the most beautiful of all the women, blonde-haired with rosy cheeks. By her, it is said, the third pyramid was reared, with the aspect of a mountain." [W. G. Waddell, Manetho (London: William Heinemann, 1980), p. 57.]

According to the Graeco-Roman authors Pliny the Elder, Strabo and Diodorus Siculus, the Third Pyramid was built by a woman named Rhodopis. When translated from the original Greek, her name means "rosy-cheeked". [G. A. Wainwright, The Sky-Religion in Egypt (Cambridge: University Press, 1938), p. 42.]

We may also note that a tomb painting recorded by the German Egyptologist C. R. Lepsius in the 1840s, depicts a blonde woman by the name of Hetepheres (circa 5th Dynasty). The German scholar Alexander Scharff, observed that she was described as being a Priestess of the Goddess Neith, a deity who was sacred to the blond-haired Libyans of the Delta region. He goes on to state that her name is precisely the same as that of Queen Hetepheres II, who is also shown as fair-haired, in a painting on the wall of Queen Meresankh III's tomb. He deduced from all of this, that the two women may well have been related, and he suggested that Egypt during the Age of the Pyramids, was dominated by an elite of blonde women. [A. Scharff, "Ein Beitrag zur Chronologie der 4. ägyptischen Dynastie." Orientalistische Literaturzeitung XXXI (1928) pp. 73-81.]

The twentieth prayer of the 141st chapter of the ancient Egyptian Book of the Dead, is dedicated "to the Goddess greatly beloved, with red hair." [E. A. W. Budge, The Book of the Dead (London: Kegan Paul, Trench & Trübner, 1901), p. 430.] In the tomb of Pharaoh Merenptah (19th Dynasty), there are depictions of red-haired goddesses. [N. Reeves & R. H. Wilkinson, The Complete Valley of the Kings (London: Thames & Hudson, 1997), p. 149.]

In the Book of the Dead, the eyes of the god Horus are described as "shining," or "brilliant," whilst another passage refers more explicitly to "Horus of the blue eyes". [Budge, op. cit., pp. 421 & 602.] The rubric to the 140th chapter of said book, states that the amulet known as the "Eye of Horus," (used to ward-off the "Evil Eye"), must always be made from lapis-lazuli, a mineral which is blue in colour. [Ibid., p. 427.] It should be noted that the Goddess Wadjet, who symbolised the Divine Eye of Horus, was represented by a snake (a hooded cobra to be precise), and her name, when translated from the original Egyptian, means "blue-green". [A. F. Alford, The Phoenix Solution (London: Hodder & Stoughton, 1998), pp. 266-268.] Interestingly, the ancient Scandanavians claimed that anyone who was blue-eyed (and therefore possessed the power of the Evil Eye), had "a snake in the eye," and blue eyes were frequently compared to the eyes of a serpent. [F. B. Gummere, Germanic Origins (London: David Nutt, 1892), pp. 58, 62.]

In the ancient Pyramid Texts, the Gods are said to have blue and green eyes. [Alford, op. cit., p. 232.] The Graeco-Roman author Diodorus Siculus (I, 12), says that the Egyptians thought the goddess Neith had blue eyes. [C. H. Oldfather, Diodorus of Sicily (London: William Heinemann, 1968), p. 45.]

A text from the mammisi of Isis at Denderah, declares that the goddess was given birth to in the form of a "ruddy woman". [J. G. Griffiths, De Iside et Osiride (Cardiff: University of Wales Press, 1970), p. 451.] Finally, the Greek author Plutarch, in the 22nd chapter of his De Iside et Osiride, states that the Egyptians thought Horus to be fair-skinned, and the god Seth to be of a ruddy complexion. [Ibid., p. 151.]

Re: Queen Scota

Post by Spiritwind »

This is basically much the same story here, told a bit differently with a few other details. I’m quite interested in using my intuition and putting the pieces of what has come down through various sources, to see if a picture emerges. We even have a road and what used to be a small community called Scotia up around where we live, although I can’t seem to track down any information about who they were.


Picts, Gaels, and Scots: Exploring their Mysterious (and Sometimes Mythical) Origins - June 19, 2018 by Steven Keith

https://www.ancient-origins.net/human-o ... cal-021949

When the tribe of Chatti arrived in Scotland at the beginning of the Christian era and became the embryonic clan Keith, they assimilated with the people known to us by their Roman name, the Picts. They, however, knew themselves by another name, the Kalti or Kelti. We are aware of this fact from the written work of the Roman scribes, who quite naturally filled in the details of the unknown that they were expected to.

Where the Picts came from and who they were, other than the carvers of often monumental monoliths and the speakers, readers and writers of a script we are still yet to decipher, understand and know, remains mysterious to the masses.

Descendants of a Goddess
They themselves believed that they were the descendants of the Goddess Brigid, considered to be sacred and benevolent across the disparate communities of the ‘Celtic’ world. Kenneth MacAlpin, considered to be Scotland’s first king, was a descendant through his mother, as all Pictish kings were, as a consequence of their matrilineal system of inheritance.

To the Gaelic speakers who had arrived in Ireland, the Picts of  what they called Alba (Scotland) were known as the Cruithne, which translates into English as ‘wheat growers’, and that name too was to be found in use in Ireland at that time to describe the non-Gaels. Their land was known as Cruithentuath. The Cruithne had populated Ireland before the arrival in Hibernia of the Gaels from Iberia.

Accounts in the Book of Lecain and Told By Strabo
In the Irish chronicle, the Book of Lecain, it is written that from Noah came Japheth and then father after son, Fathecht, Mais, Buain, Agnoin, Partilan, Luchtai, Cinge, and Cruithne - who himself produced the seven sons, Cait, Ce, Cirig, Fib, Fidach, Fotla, and Fortrem, each of whom were Kings of the seven provinces, or Kingdoms, of Cruithentuath.

The Greek historian Strabo, writing in the first century AD, asserted that the Picts or Kaltis had been displaced to Scotland from the Celtic lands of Gaul, which he called ‘Galati’, by the Samaritans, whose soldiers had invaded from beyond the river Rhine and from the mountains that are now part of Switzerland. In fact, he tells the reader that they had arrived in ‘Celtae Galatea’ from Asia Minor, where they had been known as the Kaldees or Galat from Galatia, the area that was formally the lands upon which the Hittites had built their capital of Hattusa. Are they the same people as the Chaldeans who migrated from the neighborhood of Sumer, north toward Anatolia?

Holy Ancestors?
The Gaels themselves recorded their descent through time in the Lebor Gabala, written in the eleventh century AD. It claimed that their ancestor was a Scythian King, Fenius Farsaid, also a descendant of Japheth and one of the seventy-two chiefs who began the construction of the ill-fated Tower of Babel.

His son, Nel, wed the Egyptian Princess Scota and from that union came the son, Gaedel Glas, from whom came the Gaelic culture and language (one of the original seventy-two tongues that emerged following the curse on the seventy-two chieftains intent on building a tower to talk to God!).

Nel and Scota spent their time in Egypt before they left for Spain, leaving at the same time that the Hebrews departed. Wherever they left to, they brought with them the accumulated knowledge of that civilization.

The Hebrew Bible or Old Testament is, of course, where we first read of the Tower of Babel and Japheth, as well as his second born son, Magog. From the Romano/Jewish historian of the first century AD, Titus Flavius Josephus, born Yusef Ben Matityahu, we learn that the Scythians are descended from Magog. Could it be that from the fist born son of Japheth came the Picts and from the second born came the Gaels? The biblical Tribe of Dan has often been connected with the story of Ireland, particularly with one of the founding people of that land, the Tuatha De Danann, which can translate as the ‘tribe of Dan’.

The Dan Hebrews, who occupied a coastal territory in ancient Israel, were mariners and merchants. They were also of the lands of Crete and Greece, from where they left at the time of a famine and the schism within the House of David that saw the ten northern tribes seceding over the ascension to the throne of Solomon’s son, Rehoboam, before a reconciliation and the reunification of the Kingdoms of Judah and Israel. These were concurrent events.

According to history, from the Greek islands they arrived in Denmark, giving that place its name. Interestingly, the peopling of the rest of Scandinavia began at Denmark, for obvious geographic reasons, therefore it would have been possible for the Tuatha De Danann to have arrived in Ireland from the north, as the Irish chronicles inform. Scotland too, is to the north of Ireland.

According to the ancient myths of Ireland, (recorded at different times, in different languages and by different peoples) upon the arrival of the Gaels on the island, Ireland was inhabited by a people who were known to history as the Tuatha De Danann. According to legend, the first Gael ashore was met by the three high Kings of the Tuatha De Danann, MacCuill, MacCecht, and MacGreine, accompanied by their queens.

More Mythical Elements
The story continues that a deal was struck, and the Gaels agreed that they would wait on board their ships anchored offshore, in the meantime one of the queens conjured a tempest with the intention of scattering the invading fleet. However, it abated with the magical words of a Gaelic poet. In the end the surviving Gaels, or Milesians, as they were known to the Tuatha De Danann and to the chroniclers of the time, landed and agreed that Ireland should be split between them; the Gaels taking the ground of the island and the Tuatha De Danann inheriting the underground, where they would continue to live as the fairy people of fable.

The Tuatha De Danann had themselves invaded Ireland, relieving those they knew as the Fir Bolg, of their command. Scholars assert that the Fir Bolg were the Celts displaced from the area of today’s Belgium, which was being incorporated into the Romanized world. That would confuse things, as the dates for the Roman advance on Belgae are too late to fit. Or are they? Legend asserts that the Fir Bolg were descendants of 5000 people who had originated in Greece and arrived in Ireland from there after first traversing continental Europe as far as the English Channel.

Eternal Symbols and Stories
Were the Tuath De Danann and the Cruithne one and the same people? By becoming the fairies residing in the underworld or spiritual world, they became eternal. Their symbols, names, histories and legends would become part of the high culture of the Gaels of Ireland and remain so, as indeed happened across the water in Scotland, where the spiritual heritage of the Picts or Cruithne was the glue that held together the new society forged by their merging with the Scots of Dal Riata, to create a Gaelic Scotland.

The name Eire, the Gaelic form of Ireland, comes from Eriu, one of the triumvirate of Goddesses of the Tuath De Danann and the wife of King MacCecht. Her sisters Banba and Fotla have given their names informally and poetically, to their land. Fotla was also a son of Cruithne. Could he instead have been a daughter, perhaps more appropriate in a matrilineal succession? Sons and daughters sharing the kingdom.

The Result of Seven Years of Famine?
Is it not reasonable to suggest that the mass displacement of populations that occurred around the globe, but specifically for this piece, in North Africa, the Levant, Anatolia, and the Black Sea area, during the seven years of famine, between 1703 BC and 1696 BC, was the primary driving force for the settlement of Scotland, Ireland, and much of northwestern Europe, for that matter?

This catastrophic calamity, that was recorded from China to the Americas in literature and in the rings of trees, forced starving Aryans from their desiccated grasslands, over the Hindu Kush towards the civilization of the Indus valley. It drove the Scythians westward too, into Europe and thus creating the Celtic nations of Europe, that over time themselves spread westward until being isolated there millennia later.

We can see that the seafarers of the Mediterranean had already established intercontinental trade routes. The builders of the monuments of the Middle East had already navigated the northern European coastline. It doesn’t stretch the imagination to see the connection between the Levantine leviathans and the Pictish stones at Callanish, both constructed to monitor and honor the sun and its cycle. It seems that the ancestral origin myths, retained and remembered by the modern Scots and Irish, are borne out.

A Fusion for Familiar Faces?
In my recent article, ‘Names from the Near East’ , it is asserted that there was a fusion between the Hittites of Anatolia and the Picts. Were they already familiar with each other from their shared time together in the Middle East, the crucible of modern civilization?

Each of the original waves of invaders of what would eventually become the British Isles, launched themselves from the Mediterranean. It seems that they moved because famine had caused the collapse of their societies. City states were collapsing. Civilizations too. Sumer, like it’s teacher, Harappa, also collapsed at this time, perhaps forcing its most famous son, Abraham, credited with teaching science to the Egyptians, to begin the migration that would allow him to fulfil his God-given duties to teach.

The first to reach those windswept northern shores built the structures that allowed civilization to exist, specifically to track time. Each of the civilizations in that area at that time were polytheistic, sun worshippers. They had emerged from the same root, one teaching the other and pushing knowledge of the material world further along the road of discovery. They brought all their knowledge and customs with them. They also brought their spiritual inheritance and it has never left us.
I see your love shining out from my furry friends faces, when I look into their eyes. I see you in the flower’s smile, the rainbow, and the wind in the trees....
