The Wettins built Wettin Castle on the German Saale river. "The [Wettin] family claims to descend from one Wittekind, a leader of one of the Saxon tribes converted to Christianity under Charlemagne. However, this is conjecture..." Conjecture doesn't mean that it isn't true, and if correct that the Wettin family itself makes the claim to Wittekind, there's got to be some teeth to it.
When rulers by the name of Wittenberg died out, we find that the Wittenberg estate (on the Elbe) dropped into the hands of the Wettins, and yet I cannot find one article making a Wettin connection to the previous Wittenberg house...even though Wettins themselves claim to stem from the Saxon king, Wittekind. My impression is that the previous house of Wittenberg must have been Wettins if upon their losing hereditary rights a Wettin took over the estate.
The said previous Wittenberg rulers were "Ascanians," the surname of Albert the Bear, the founder of Wittenberg. Until shown otherwise, I'm going to assume that Albert was a Wettin, and that Wettins trace themselves to his stock. What stock was that? When we find that "He had conquered the surrounding territory from the Slavs and replaced them by German colonists, especially by Flemings from the lower Rhine," we must ask, why "especially by Flemings"? At first glance one would think that Albert was of Fleming stock, and this may indeed be half the story, for while it is said that he was a Dane, the Danes apparently made an alliance with Flemings.
I was convinced of this alliance taking place due to a certain website showing that various Dane surnames/families of the Viking period are now being identified (with DNA evidence included) as Fleming stock instead. Both sides of this controversy can be correct if there had been an alliance, you see. A Fleming-Dane identity of the Templars does not contradict a Franko-Dane identity, for I am in the throws of tracing Flemings to Franks stemming from William of Gellone.
While it's known that Flemings were central to Templarism, their alliance with the Dane Rus can explain the term, "Rosicrucian." Therefore, a Fleming-Dane alliance may just be paydirt for the view that Templar-related Rosicrucianism was based in a Rus bloodline. In Gaelic, "ros" means "rose," wherefore one can see the possibility of the Rosicrucians disguising themselves as pertaining to the rose when in fact they pertain to the Ros/Rus.
Albert the Bear used the gold and black bars of Saxony (the same colors were shared by Flanders), thus assuring his connection to the white Saxon dragon...which is conspicuous because "Witte" means "white." Some have gathered that the Billung surname was, like the Wettins, from king Wittekind, and moreover that Billungs are at the root of the Ascanians, suggesting again that Wettins were the heart of the Ascanians. The article below provides some possible evidence to this end where it says: "When the [Ascanian] line became extinct in 1422, the country fell to Frederick the Warlike of Wettin and his descendants."
I have not yet concluded hard that Wettins were Wends, or that the house of Windsor (assumed to be from the Wettins) was named after Wends. Assuming for good reason that Albert was a Wettin, how is it that he invaded Wends? A would-be tyrant starts off by bringing the branches of his own bloodline under his authority, and sometimes it requires force.
Albert's bloodline should be investigated for connection to the Hohens who would later rule Brandenburg, and who shared the black-lion-on-gold symbol of Flanders. Albert did support Barbarossa Hohen in warfare. If the connection can be found, the Wettins were Cohens in some way...but wait till I show that proto-Cohen Huns used the swastika symbol. There is no doubt in my mind that Hitler opposed Hohen powers of Germany when he arose supreme in that country, and while at first I did not know that Hitler traced to the same Rosicrucian stock as the Hohens, I now think it's true so as to expose a schism that developed in the Rosicrucian cult.
Adding to the evidence that Ascanians were Wettins, Brandenburg was taken over by the house of Wittelsbach upon the Ascanian line running dry. The identification of Wittelsbach with the Wettins is very important because the Arms of Wittelsbach used the blue and white diamonds that became the diamonds of Bavaria. These diamonds, I am quite certain, indicate a major branch of the blue and white checkered Cohens. Suddenly, the question arises as to how much Cohen stock was involved in the Bavarian Illuminati.
I learned that these Bavarian diamonds "were inherited by the Wittelsbachs from the counts of Bogen - whose possessions were near the Danube river around Regensburg." The Bogen design was transferred to Wittelsbach in 1240, but unfortunately I do not read anything telling where the Bogens received the diamonds. While I do read from houseofnames.com that the Bogen surname was first found in Bavaria, I will soon trace them further back to Transylvania, to the same Kabar/Khazars stock as produced the Rothschilds. I have seen glimpse that Hohens were from the Salian Franks of Bavaria/Franconia, and do note that the colors of the Bogen Coat shown are black and gold!
The Bogen symbol shown is a bow for shooting arrows, reminding me that the Rothschild symbol is the arrow. I became half-convinced that Rothschild ancestry was connected to the naming of Bavaria because the real Rothschild surname was Bauer. I see that versions of the Bogen surname are variations of "Boager," which, because it evokes a bower (i.e. one who shoots bows), makes me theorize (for the first time) that the Bauer surname, said by many to mean "farmer," actually meant one who shoots bows. After all, a common version of "Bauer" is "Bower"!
Take a look at the Scottish Bower Coat and see the bows and arrows (!!), and note that a version of the name is shown as "Beauer." Plus, at the page showing the German Bower Coat, we find the variation, "Bauer." This page tells that the Bauer surname was first found in Austria and Bavaria. These things tend to reveal that Rothschilds descended from Bogen elements, no small finding since there are many researchers in high places who thus far have sought Rothschild roots in vain. It is quite interesting that I will soon trace the name to Biharia (in Transylvania), and that the Bahr surname of Germany is depicted as a bear. After making that trace to Biharia, I will make a trace further back to Persian elements called "Bahram," keeping in mind that Persia is depicted in Daniel 7 as a bear.
As another version of "Bauer" is shown as "Bohr," perhaps this was the boar line which I identify as the Eburs (who founded York, the city known to be named after the boar). Perhaps the very term, boar (Old English = "bar"), was created after the bower that shoots the boar. In the Caledonian-Boar myth, the boar was in fact shot with bow and arrow.
It's interesting, since I traced Flanders to Blanda of Lucania, that the father of Albert the Bear was count of Ballenstedt. Ballenstedt was home to the Ascanians, and at the Wikipedia article on the subject one can see that the Arms of Ballenstedt were the makings of the black and gold bars of Saxony. One can probably trace Ballenstedt to the modified blue and white diamond design of the Phalen/Whalen Coat. Are you with me? I'm suggestng that the Phalen surname is a variation of Ballen, and by that connection I'm tracing the Ascanians of Ballenstedt to Bavaria's blue and white diamonds owned by the Bogens of Bavaria.
This exposes the Phalens as blue and white Cohens, wherefore note the deer as Crest in the Phalen surname, for the Cohens used deer antlers as one of their many symbols. The deer stag was also the sacred symbol of the proto-Hungarians, and it just so happens that I was led to Biharia in the first place when dealing with the Kabar roots of the first Hungarians!
As I entertain Albert the Bear to be of Fleming background to some extent, see that the Ballen-surname Coat uses a black lion (which is also the symbol of Flanders). As the black lion traces to Baldwins of Flanders, perhaps the Baldwin/Balduin name was somehow in honor of Blanda elements.
In my Wars of the Rose chapter, I was able to trace the Fulk/Folk surname of Anjou forward to the Bale surname of England. Knowing already that Fulks of Anjou were Veres/Cohens, I must assume that the Bailey surname is related, for it uses nine white/Vere stars on blue. In light of the black-lion Ballen surname now being found almost-certainly to belong to black and gold Illuminati families, see the black eagle wings on gold in the German Fulk Coat, and that these Fulks were first found in Brandenburg where the eagle was a prime symbol. Also note the black eagle as the Fulk crest. The black eagle was/is the symbol of the Hohens, wherefore look at the blue and white Cohen checks that make up most of the Italian Fulk Coat!! This is evidence that Fulks were of the Veres, as per the French Fer Coat.
Due to what I am about to reveal in coming chapters, that the Kabar bloodline of Biharia became directly connected to the Vere rulers of Anjou, I am becoming convinced that Rothschilds descend in-part from Veres and/or Fulks. Note the eagle wings, and what appear to be gold Vere stars on blue, in the German Bauer Coat. Could the shield's green background explain why the first Rothschild later changed the name of his household from "Red Shield" to "Green Shield"?
I am now easily convinced that the blue boar symbol of the Veres belongs to the blue boar in the Bailey/Baly Crest, and that this boar color relates, not just to the blue in the Bailey Coat, or to the Cohen checks, but to the blue of Wettin...explaining why Ascanians were of Ballenstedt and meanwhile appear to be Wettins.
I wouldn't have come to the German Billung surname if not for the Billung house falling to Albert the Bear upon the Billungs running dry of an heir. While this suggests that Albert was a Billung in some way, I retreat from my first impulse of making a "Ballen(stedt)" equation with "Billung."
Albert the Bear received Lusatia (in the Brandenburg area of Germany). The blue and white horizontal bars of Lusignan now become important, for I connect the dragon peoples of Lusatia and Lusignan. I'm suggesting that the bars of the Lusignan Arms are a variation of the Saxon/Ascanian bars because the rulers of Lusignan became connected to the Ascanians...which should explain why Albert the Bear (the Ascanian) received Lusatia. Later, the Wettins received Lusatia, expect-able if Albert was himself a Wettin.
Consider that Brandenburg, first in the possession of Wends and then of Albert, passed from the blue and white Wittelsbachs to Luxembourg, and that the Arms of Luxembourg also use blue and white horizontal bars. You can see much information on the Luxembourg Arms at the website below, but it is not able to tell with certainty where its bars originated.
I'd say from Lusignan stock, surely, for "Lux" and "Lus" are virtually the same terms. Moreover, as the Arms of Luxembourg use a red lion, note below that the Lusignan Arms in both Cyprus and Cilicia also use a red lion. These far-off domains were due to the (short) period that Lusignan came to rule Jerusalem, but it hasn't escaped me that Cyprus and Cilicia were two major homes of the Aphrodite-Hebrew holy grail bloodline.
The Luxembourg webpage above says that the Luxembourg blue and white bars may have originated with the "Bierset Estate." I checked the Bier Coat to find that it uses a bear as symbol! If Albert's bear symbol was due to his being of Bier stock, then apparently he was a blue-and-white barred Cohen of Lusignan/Luxembourg stock. This could explain why the Scottish Bayer Coat is blue with a white chevron while the German Bayer Coat shows a bear. The English Bayer Coat is one large red rose, too large to be non-important. I would be very surprised to find that the large single red rose does not link to a prominent Rosicrucian family.
A version of the English "Bayer" surname is "Beier," looking very much like "Bier." I should add that the namers of Bavaria are said by Wikipedia to be the "Baia" peoples, a term evoking "Baja" and therefore the Bajocasses Celts of Bessin. It seems like a fine idea to modify "Bayer" from "Bajo," especially since Bessin was later "Bayeux." The flag of Bayreuth (in Bavaria) uses the Hohen black and white quartered shield as well as the black lion surrounded by a red and white border, the symbol of Nuremberg Hohenzollerns.
The following quote tells that the blue and white bars came to Luxembourg by marriage to the Biers, wherefore I will assume that the Bier surname was connected to the mermaid (Melusine) of Lusignan, an idea that stands up to scrutiny when a "Wier" version of "Bier" is found (for Melusine depicted a Vere/Weir/Wier bloodline).
According to Ralf Harteminck who maintains a great site of civic arms, the Bierset arms came from the famous Bierset-family, who played a great role in medieval times. The estate came by marriage to the House of Luxembourg.
In Kanton Luzern, Switzerland (arms white-blue shield) we have Schwarzenberg, Malters and the next village Ruswill has the same Knights Templars arms as in Bierset, red shield parted in four by [three] white [horizontal] bars"(round brackets not mine).
You now know that Lusatia, Luxembourg, and Luzern were all founded by the same peoples. Plus, as I have shown the Sybaris peoples of Calabria/Lucania important to the Varangian side of the Rosicrucians, let me remind you that the peoples of Sybaris founded nearby Laus. You should find it shocking, American, that the Washingtom Monument is the penis of the Laz dragon. You should revolt, American, against the powers in your country who have stood this vile monument before your good face. They surely laugh behind your back as they convince you to be patriotic to all that America stands for.
I now have some powerful information on the roots of the blue and white bars. I repeat my discovery that Lusatia was founded by the proto-Leslie clan. It is said that Leslies proper of Scotland descended from one Bartholemew of the Hungarian theater at the same time that the Drummonds appear in Scotland directly from the blood of Hungarian royals. The Drummonds were in the same retinue that saw the coming of Bartholemew to Scotland, a retinue escorting princess Margaret from the supportive hands of king Andrew. I mention this here because the German Drummond Coat consists of three white wavy bars on a blue shield!! It is clear from the Scottish Drummond Coat, using exactly the same wavy bars (except in red on gold), that the German and Scottish Drummonds were of the same clan. What could this mean but that Drummonds were a branch of the proto-Leslies of Lusatia? While the means by which this was true had eluded me, I have finally found the answer, to be explained in a coming chapter. May I now ask why is the Scottish flag is a white cross on blue???
I had traced the Leslies to the Laz dragon, not just because the Leslie Crest uses a green dragon, but because I trace Lusatia to the Laz Caucasians, and the Laz to Lothian. See the Seton/Sayton Coat also using a green dragon, and note that Scottish Setons were first found in Lothian. The importance of the "les" (not necessarily indicating lesbians, but rather female-ness) in the Leslie surname now becomes important, for "Seton" appears as a version of "Sitone" (= inhabitants of Kvenland), and especially of Setonia (in Estonia) across the waters from the Kvenlanders. The Sitones, you will recall, were a matrilinear society...as were the Picts (in the Lothian region) depicted in British myth with the color green. The Veres also used a green dragon, and a major tribe of Picts were the Caledonians, which I trace to the Calydonian-Boar peoples...whom in Greek myth were of mythical Artemis, a depiction of a brutish female-ordered society among Amazons. The Veres of Oxford (see Arms of Oxford) used a beaver symbol that could trace to Bavarian roots.
My finding is that the white on blue colors stem, more deeply than Bavaria, from certain "Rangabe" imperials of Byzantium who were involved in inter-marriages with Varangians. In fact, the mother of the first Drummond was Anastasia, daughter of the Varangian king, Yaroslav of Kiev, while Byzantines provided a princess (Anna Porphyrogeneta,) for Yaroslav's father, whom some say was Yaroslav's mother (though some deny this even as they see the similarity between "Anna " and "Anastasia"). See the Drummond tree:
Anna was a daughter of the Amorian dynasty because her father traces back through the male/imperial line to the extra-marital affair of Micheal III (an Amorian emperor) and Eudokia Ingerina. Now Eudokia Ingerina (9th century) was the daughter of Melissena and Inger, and Melissena was a Rangabe...a family which used blue and white colors! In this way the blue and white Drummond colors may have been passed to them from Anna > Yaroslav > Anastasia > George Drummond.
While I feel confident that the Cohen blue and white checks were of Rangabe stock (since I have been defining the Cohen surname as the direct offspring of Melissena for a while now), I have yet to connect the Rangabe clan to Khazar kagans, but feel I am on the threshold of doing so [indeed, I have found it, details soon]. The point to make here is that the blue and white bars may not have been from the blue and white checks, but that the checks and bars were independently formed from different Rangabe stock: the checks from Melissena, and the bars from descendants of Melissena that transferred through Kiev and Hungary and finally through Leslie elements to Lusignan > Luxembourg.
Long after Eudokia Ingerina (and also after the formation of the Drummonds and Leslies in Scotland), the blue and white Luxembourg rulers became Roman emperors, for which reason the Luxembourg-tied rulers of Brandenburg became Electors to the Roman/imperial throne. It was the Luxembourg emperors which gave Brandenburg to the Hohens (i.e. to Frederick I of Hohenzollern), which reinforces in my mind that the Luxembourg emperors were themselves Cohens of sorts. If you take a look at the Arms of the Luxembourg emperors at the webpage below, which was a few generations before the Hohenzollerns were granted Brandenburg, you will see the black Hohen eagle, meaning that Hohens received the symbol from the Luxembourg emperors.
There is some good proof that these emperors had been Cohens in that the first Luxembourg emperor, Henry VII, took his imperial position when it was left vacant by the Hohenstaufen, Frederick II. The latter had also been king of Cyprus and king of Jerusalem...not long after Guy of Lusignan had been king of Jerusalem and Cyprus. At the website below, we can see that the black Hohen eagle had belonged at first to the Hohenstaufens (i.e. it was they who passed it on to the Luxembourg emperors).
Coming back to the Ballenstedt surname of Albert the Bear, see that the Vallen-surname Coat uses blue and white bars that would seem to be those of Lusignan and Luxembourg. "Vallen" is identical with "Ballen," you see. As these Laz entities trace to Sithones, could we link surnames such as Vallen/Ballen/Phalen/Whalen to the city of Sitten/Sion since it was in the canton of Valais/Wallis? I think yes. Look at the greyhound in the Vallais-surname Crest, and compare it to central greyhound in the Falen Coat and Crest. Also, the Vallais Coat and the Seton/Sayton Coat both use three crescents.
I have discovered yet another house of Cohen with a shield full of black and gold checks. I discovered this while seeking a Billung coat, which I didn't find, but when I searched "Bill," zowie, take a look at the German Bill/Bils Coat and Crest. The colors are explained in that Billungs were margraves of Saxony.
The Billings Coat turned up what could be construed as the Templar flag of Jerusalem. Apparently, the Billungs were very much a Rosicrucian family. Although I'm not jumping to make a Billung-Ballen equation, the two surnames did merge when a daughter of the last male Billung (Duke Magnus) married Otto, Count of Ballenstedt. Moreover, it seems that Billungs came from the same Wettin stock as the Ballenstedts, for an online claim is made wherein "The earliest layer of entries suggests that the Billungs emerged from the 'descendants of Widukind...'"
The parents of the earliest-known male Billung (Hermann, born about 900) are said to be unknown. As he became margrave of Saxony by the will of the Roman emperor from Saxony, Otto I, I suspected that Otto was himself a Billung...and this proved to be true. For, Otto's grandfather, Otto the Illustrious (duke of Saxony, born 851), was the son of the earliest-known Billung, Oda. The father of Otto was Liudolf (duke of Saxony), and another son of Liudolf was Bruno: "According to legend, Bruno is the founder of Brunswick."
I am of he opinion that, while Fred and Wilma Flintstone were codes for Hohens of Flanders, Barney and Betty Rubble were codes for Hohens of Germany. I had identified Barney Rubble (wearing brown) as the house of Brunswick. It can now be seen why Barney's wife was made "Betty" in depiction of the Wettins, for if indeed the Billungs were Wettins, Bruno's father was married to a Wettin, a marriage evoking Barney and Betty beyond my wildest hopes. What's more, these "crazy" notions have led me to identify the Billungs as fundamental parts of Bamm Bamm.
Yes indeed, the details will come later, but to tweak your interest let me say here that Bamm Bamm depicted the Pamphylians on the Bilis (!!) river of Paphlagonia. Also, see the club symbol (used by Bamm Bamm) on the Brunswick family Arms. This may turn out to be a profound discovery, all thanks to a cartoon where its creators went too far in revealing what we are not supposed to know. Then again, it may be that the creators themselves didn't know that Bamm Bamm depicted Pamphylians, for I discovered this only as a result of identyfying Babenburgs of Bamberg as Paphlagonians...when I read that Pamphylians and Paphlagonians were essentially the same peoples. In other words, while the creators of the Flintstone cartoon knew that Bamm Bamm depicted the founders of Bamburg, you and I might be the only ones who know that the founders of Bamberg were Pamphylians.
I therefore feel bang-on in pegging the Babenburgs of Bamberg as a basis of the Illuminati, for the dragon bloodline has been traced independently to the Heneti > Veneti by several other courses. Later I will show that the proto-Leslies of Germany were intricately tied to Babenburgs, this being yet another profound discovery tending to prove that Babenburgs did indeed honor the dragon cult.
In the previous chapter, I left off at the mention of the Brunswick bloodline resulting in-part through an unknown Liudolf, and in-part through his wife, Oda Billung. I showed evidence that the Billung term was connected to the Cohen surname, and that all related elements were at the roots of the Bavarian Illuminati. As the first Rothschilds are said to have been affiliated in some way and to some degree with the Bavarian Illuminati, I found it interesting that the earliest Rothstein surname was found in Brunswick. We do not find "Rothschild" listed among the alternatives of the Rothstein surname, but if you do a Google search for "Arms of Rothschild," this very Rothstein Coat will come up (i.e. suggesting that the Rothstein surname is indeed a variation of "Rothschild," but that modern Rothschilds would rather that we not know).
Evidence lies in the central feature of the Rothstein Coat: a single arrow. It's known that the traditional Rothschild Coat of Arms has been five arrows, bundled tightly in their centers so as to create ten protrusions/ends (depicting Mayer Rothschild's five sons and five daughters). While "Rothstein" may mean Red Stone, it's possible to derive Red Cup, for our English "stein" is borrowed from German and is defined as a mug. By "red cup" I'm alluding to the pagan holy grail; the Italian deck of cards uses a red cup as one of its four suits, and for another we find a green club (the Bamm Bamm type of club).
There are times when I consider potential things of importance but decide to leave them out of this book, only to regret it later. One such thing might be that the eight-pointed star, seen on the Rothstein Coat, is also on the German Albert Coat and the Roca Coat. The previous chapter spent considerable time on Albert the Bear, a German ruler who was rooted in draco-Cohen elements, and I add this piece here because I had tentatively concluded that Albert was a Rus, but in particular of the Roxolani Rus, while "Roca" certainly evokes those peoples. This then serves as some evidence that the Albert surname of Germany was a take from Albert the Bear. (I should add here that the Stein Coat uses an eight-pointed star, suggesting that the same star in the Rothstein Coat belongs to the "Stein" portion of the surname (which then clarifies that the arrow belongs to the "Roth" portion.)
The bear symbol traces back to Medo-Persians, according even to Biblical prophecy, and so I will re-iterate what I had said before, that online articles are rife in identifying the eight-pointed star as a symbol of Ishtar, the Mother of the original dragon cult in Sumeria. I have repeatedly identified Ishtar as a Mede goddess (of the Guti Aryans) but borrowed and beloved by the Hebrews of Chaldea/Babylon. I have for a long time identified Ishtar as evolving into "Babylon the Great" of Revelation 17. I and many others identify the latter as the Roman empire, but also the end-time European Union, wherefore it shouldn't be surprising, and yet it's quite shocking, that servants of the European Union had considered using the eight-pointed star as the EU flag.
Yes, in 1951, the very basis of the current EU flag was chosen by Salvador de Madariaga. Although the EU flag committee chose five-pointed (gold) stars (on blue) in the end, Madariaga's stars were eight-pointed. In 1952, a crescent moon with single Venus star, having a larger six-pointed star in the background, was put forward for EU-flag consideration. Clearly, the Rothschilds were front and center in the flag committee, as expected...since Rothschilds had become the undisputed invisible rulers of Europe long before the 1950s.
Madariaga was the grandfather (on his mother's side) of Javier Solana, the latter being, as I write (2007), the "big visible boss" of the European Union!! Solana's mother had written a large book (over 600 pages) in honor of Francis Bacon, the Rosicrucian authur of "New-Atlantis." It's interesting how some writers claim that when Bacon disappeared, he re-appeared in Germany as the pro-Luther Rosicrucian, Johannes Andraeas. Note that the Arms of Johannes Andreas appear on the Arms of the Brandenburg Electorate. If the question is, who borrowed from whom. I would (perhaps too hastily) say that the Andraea family merged with Brandenburg Hohens in some way. As I will later reveal that proto-Leslies of Germany were surnamed, "Lazer," I might even go so far as to peg Luther as part of the proto-Leslie family (Luther's personal symbol was a cross on a rose).
I think that Albert the Bear, as a Rus, could have stemmed from the Ares/Eros cult, and so I should cite the infants seen in the Andreas Arms, for I detect that these constitute a symbol of the crude and lewd mythical Eros (a major part of the Muse/Arthurian bloodline). Eros was a symbol of child-sex i.e. adult males with male boys. That the Roman Catholic church has become infested with these types is no coincidence, for Rosicrucians and other dragon-liners infiltrated the Vatican and the rest of the Catholic church.
You will note a black bear in the midst of two horns in top-right of the Arms of the Brandenburg Electorate. This was the symbol of the Zahringers from whom the Brandenburg Hohens borrowed. For example, "The original arms of the Zahringer dynasty was a red eagle on gold," and this eagle later became the symbol of the Brandenburg Hohenzollers. The two horns look like steer horns, except that they are too vertical. Buffalo horns are not curved in that way, and yet below we find that Zahringers used buffalo hors, wherefore I'll assume that the horns above are a species of buffalo (I'm not very good with horn types).
I have neglected to mention much about the Zahringers in the past because I have as yet to determine their significance in the dragon cult, if any, and more frankly I have been waiting to find some solid evidence to show that they were Hohens/Cohens themselves. I will mention here that "Zahr" rhymes with "Bahr" = "bear," but that this may be a coincidence. I'll also include the following quote, first reminding you that I identify Bedrock (of the Flintstone cartoon) as Baden, and that the Water Buffalos Lodge that Fred and Barney belonged to must depict the Zahringers as they evolved into Hohens:
"The Markgraves of Baden are descendents of the Zahringer dynasty...The original arms of the Zahringer dynasty was a red eagle on gold. Whether the Counts of Baden have used this eagle is not clear. In any case, from the beginning of the 13th century the red bend is used as the arms of Baden. The meaning or origin of this bend is not known. As crest two buffalo horns are used."
As I wondered why the family chose to use buffalo horns, I recalled the Greek version, "boubalos," and the French "bubale." Can it be a coincidence that I have tied the Babel surname to Babenburgs? There are two immediate conclusions to make here: 1) it might be true that Zahringers were Babenburgs of the Babel surname in the first place, but if not, then 2) those Babenburgs merged with Zahringers and thereby transferred the buffalo symbol to them.
Beside the Zahringer design in the Arms of the Brandenburg Electorate, we see, not just buffalo horns, but the head of a red bull, while on a Hohen-family plague that is the Arms of Prussia, we see the red bull in full body almost centrally upon the Arms. The red bull is also the central feature in the Oxford Arms, and as such I take it that this particular bull was a Vere symbol. Therefore I now introduce the Veringen family that was part and parcel with Wurttemberg, for while three blue deer horns depicted Wurttemburg (see website below), three red deer horns (on gold) depicted Veringen. What does this tell us when we consider the region called "Baden-Wurttemburg"? It suggests that Zahringers and Veringens were the same stock.
This theory can then explain why "Zahr" looks like "Bahr," for "Veringen" easily modifies to "Beringen." In fact, Poppa, the wife of Rollo, was the granddaughter of a Babenburg named "Poppo," and the latter named his son after a family name, "Berenger." The greater point here is that Babenburgs and Veringens became one. Let me share the following quote again:
"Henry (died 886), a son of Count Poppo of Grapfeld, one of the first Babenbergs...Henry was the ancestral lord of a castle, Babenberg, on the River Main, around which the later city of Bamberg was built...It has also been suggested that Henry had a son, named either Henry or, on the basis of onomastics, Berengar after his grandfather. This Berengar had a daughter named Poppa..."
Henry is styled Heinrich von Babenburg and Henry of Franconia. He had Hedwig von Babenburg for a daughter, and she maried Otto I (duke of Saxony), the son of Oda Billung. Much later I will trace Grapfeld (modern Grabfeld) to the Jebusites at Gareb hill in Jerusalem, and not merely for the similarity of terms. This finding becomes central to this book and provides an unexpected climax to this reseaerch project. Amazingly, I was also able to trace the Gareb term to the Caucasian origin of mythical Ares. It raises the possibility that Babenburgs were Jebusites/Amorites of Jerusalem evolving into the Hebrew-Rus dragon cult. The Veringen and Berengar terms make it possible that the lot of surnames under discussion stemmed from Varangian Rus, and that the modern bear symbol of Russia belonged to the same. This idea not only leads to the understanding that Paphlagonians/Pamphylians merged with Varangian stock in Germany to produce a Baben-Varangi mix, but that Rollo married into the Baben-Varangi family when he married Poppa.
I've now got to say that Rosicrucianism was fundamentally a Baben-Varangi mix. The idea just feels right with me. But didn't I say that Rosicrucianism was from Hungarians mixed with Varangians? Amazingly, there is no contradiction, for Hungarians depicted themselves with a deer. In fact, in Hungarian myths, Hungary was founded when certain Huns followed a stag (= a male deer) through the wilderness. Convinced, therefore, that the Hungarian deer symbol passed to Veringen, I must only find how it did so. We read:
"The oldest seal of the town [of Veringer] dates from around 1320 and already shows the lion and the deer antler...The antler is, contrary to most arms of Wurttemberg, derived from the arms of the Counts of Veringen."
A distinction is thus made between the founders of Wurttemburg and the counts of Veringen prior to the merger of the two, and it's the latter that brings the stag symbol to the region, thus serving as hint that the counts of Veringen were Babenburgs. Another website tells that "Hartmann of Wirtinsberc (= Wurttemberg) was married to a Countess of Veringen." As the Babel surname was first found in Wurttemburg (according to houseofnames.com), might it have arrived to that place from the Baben-Veringen alliance?
It's interesting that another spelling of the place is "Wuerttemberg," what evokes the north-Netherland region of Wieringen, a place ruled and founded by one of the first Varangians, Rurik (ninth century). I think the very term, Varangian, derives from "Wieringen," but shouldn't "Veringen" also derive from that place? Wurttemburg, by the way, was not far from Frankfurt, where the Rothschilds emerged.
As I've rooted both Cohens and Rothschilds in Hungary's founders, albeit the Kabar sector of those founders, I expect that Babenburgs should trace to those Kabars. Perhaps the stag in the Crest of the Rothes surname of Scotland is indication that the surname was of the proto-Rothschilds. Since the Rothes surname was first found in Moray (according to houseofnames), I'd peg them as part of the neighboring Ross clan...that I have traced to the Drummond Kabars of Hungary!! It is also amazing that I have already (but to be explained later) exposed proto-Rothschilds as Merovingian founders of Moray. Without delveng into it, I should also mention the following here:
"The original arms of Wurttemberg are three deer antlers. They are first mentioned in 1228 as the arms of count Konrad and his father Hartmann. The arms were derived from older arms of the counts of Nellenburg, that showed three blue antlers. Both the counts of Nellenburg and of Wurttemberg were related to the counts of Veringen."
I mention this only to inform the reader, and meanwhile recording it for later use, that the antler symbol of Wurttemburg was first from Nellenburg. What now strikes me is that the Irish Fleming Crest uses a stag. It is striking because I will later show how the Kabars of Hungary's founding -- the very same ones from Biharia to which I trace the Rothschilds and Cohens -- were the founders of the Flemings on one side. It is just now that I recall two things: 1) the Kyle family using the stag symbol in various of their historical Arms, and, 2) my finding that the pipe in the mouth of the black lion of Flanders was the pipe of king Cole (Kyles claim to be named after king Cole).
The Arms of the Brandenburg Electorate also shows the black and white quartered coat of Frederick I Hohenzollern (of Brandenburg). That Babenburg elements used white symbols on black background becomes important for making the Babenburg connection to Hohens, but also for tracing the whole lot to Paphlagonians. I've already touched on this Babenburg connection to Paphlagonia in a previous chapter, but will do so again later with newer insights. For now I wish to show that a white Zionist star on black was the symbol of a "Hewen" surname, which I would construe as a version of "Hohen" (just as "Cohen" and "Cowan" are the same surname). The website at the following link shows the Hewen Coat.
Although it seems likely that varied Hebrew groups could have used the Zionist star, it may yet be that the first Rothschild became committed to Hohen political/financial causes...if indeed Rothschilds, as claimed by many, did use the Zionist star as their own symbol. There's a hiccup in the theory that Rothschilds were pro-Hohen, however, in the story that's told about the Bavarian Illuminatist who got struck by lightning. In his pocket was found some papers having the socialist agenda of his organization, telling of the formation of a government for the purpose of seizing private property, and in other ways controlling society as did the Communist Russians a century later (i.e. when the Rothschilds siezed Russia in 1917). The problem with the idea that the first Rothschild was partnered with the Bavarian Illuminati is that, as the story goes, the Prussian government supposedly wiped the Illuminati out of Germany after the discovery of these papers.
If this was true, then it would appear that the Hohens, who controlled Prussia at the time, were opposed to the Bavarian Illuminati. There are multiple ways to interpret the reality, including: 1) the Prussian government faked opposition to the Illuminati, and instead hid/protected its leaders rather than chasing them out; 2) the Prussian government was opposed to the Bavarian Illuminati because it was a rebellious off-shoot of the Hohen Illuminati. It's a fact that, in those very times, Prussian kings willingly allowed themselves to be called "Illuminated Despots" in a political system controlled by the new "ethics" of the Enlightenment Movement. The impression I received when reading up on the topic (from 1970 Britannica, I think), was that, rather than being totally ousted from power by the invisible rulers of society, the kings settled for an alliance with the Illuminati.
It would be remarkable if the visible founder of the Bavarian Illuminati, a Hebrew named Adam Weishaupt ("haupt" means "head" in German), had a surname that was a variation of "Wassa/Washington." It's intriguing that Weishaupt formed the Illuminati in 1776, the year of American independence...occurring just a generation before the Bavarian Illuminati succeeded in bringing about the "enlightenment" of French independence. Clearly, the torch-weilding Statue of Liberty, given by French Freemasons as a gift to celebrate the first centennial of American Independence, is a symbol of the Bavarian Illuminati.
There is yet a question as to whether the Bavarian Illuminati was connected to the Hohens of Prussia, who by the way had amalgamated Prussia with Brandenburg. I await the evidence to show one way or the other, but already feel that there must have been some blood relation between the two. In the past, I had reason only to connect Rothschilds to the Bavarian Illuminati, as others do, but my work has now led me to believe that Rothschilds were more likely connected to Hohens. Consider that Hohens, because they used red and white checks, were a red version of the blue and white checkered Cohens. Mayer Bauer's new surname of "Red Shield" might just have depicted Hohen red. If so, we'd want to know where the Hohen red came from. I shared in the previous chapter that Albert the Bear had won Brandenburg from the Wends long before the region, with its red eagle, passed to the Hohenzollerns. Consider now the following quote that tends to identify Albert as a Zahringer, and then ask once again if "Zahr" and "Bahr" had been inter-changeable terms:
"According to tradition, the Markischer Adler, or red eagle of the Mark Brandenburg, was adopted by Margrave Gero in the 10th century. Gustav A. Seyler states that the Ascanian Albert the Bear was the originator...The Mark Brandenburg, known as the Holy Roman Empire's 'sandbox' (Streusandbüchse), was bought in 1415 by Burggrave Frederick VI of Nuremberg of the House of Hohenzollern. The Hohenzollerns made the poor marshes and woodlands over the centuries the nucleus of a powerful state.
After being formally enfeoffed as Elector Frederick I of Brandenburg, he quartered the arms of Hohenzollern (quarterly black and white) and the burgravate of Nuremberg (a black lion in gold in a red and silver border) with the Brandenburg red eagle"(brackets not mine).
Whether or not "Zahr" and "Bahr" were interchangeable, it seems likely that Albert was named after the black Zahringer bear, or vice versa, for, as I shared earlier (from website below), "The original arms of the Zahringer dynasty was a red eagle on gold". If true that Zahringers were Varangian Rus, the red of the Zahringer eagle must have been the basis of Red Communist Russia, and it cannot be a coincidence that the cause of Weishaupt's Bavarian Illuminati was taken up by Carl Marx, the writer of the Communist Manifesto that under-girded Russian Communism. Therefore, we see both the Bavarian Illuminati and the Hohens connected to Zahringer red.
It then becomers significant that while the Zahringer side of the family used blue antlers, the Veringen side used red antlers. Moscovite Russia was founded by the Varangian Rus (of Kiev), you see. And of course the Red Rus of Galicia come to mind, a region ruled by the Varangian king, Vladimir I, when he was involved with Kiev. Some have argued well that "white Russians" had been in Kiev.
Since Albert the Bear comes out looking like a Zahringer, one possible way of tracing the proto-Illuminati cult further back than Zahringers is to look at the Billungs. The earliest-known Billung was Oda (born about 800), wife of Liudolf and therefore mother of Bruno, founder of the Brunswick house. At the website below, we learn that the arms of Brunswick were two gold lions on red, which was not only the symbol of Normandy, but of the Abreu surname. Since I've traced the Abreu term to the Eburovices Celts (of Evreux, Normandy), might "Bruno" have derived from a term that was formed in honor of the Eburs?
One possibility, therefore, is that the Red Shield that was "Rothschild" was the red shield of Brunswick, in which case Rothschilds trace back to a red branch of Eburo Hebrews (interesting enough, certain Eburs founded York, depicted eventually by a white rose as opposed to the red rose of Lancaster). I traced the Bruce kings of Scotland to the same Eburovices, which may then explain why the Bruces changed their blue lion symbol to a red saltire cross on gold.
For the first time ever, I can now take a stab at identifying the red rose of Lancaster...as the red heart of Luneburg. In fact, Luneburg became amalgamated with Brunswick in what became Brunswich-Luneburg. The Brunswick-Luneburg webpage shows the symbol of Luneburg: a blue lion on gold with red hearts (seen also on the Arms of Brunswick Duchy). This design reflects the gold lion on blue with red hearts that was and still is the Danish flag/arms, which can't be a coincidence. Keep in mind that these very blue and gold lions were used as symbols also by the Templars. As I write, I have already found (and written several times on) a large, single red heart symbol belonging to a Flemo-Vero-Merovingian bloodline leading to the founders of the United States; the details are in coming chapters, but as yet I do not believe I have found the symbol's full significance. I have known for some two years that red hearts appear on the Hohen-family Arms of Prussia, and clearly these must belong to Luneburg, something I had not known until now. Note that the red hearts are on a white background, and placed directly beside the Hohen red and white checks.
On the other side of the red hearts we see the anchor symbol. Is it a coincidence that the Huggo Coat uses the very same mermaid seen in the German Babel Coat, while that mermaid (in the Huggo Coat) holds an anchor? Later, I will show that this anchor belonged to the proto-Bruce family called "Bratt," a family that traces to proto-Leslies and proto-Drummonds in Podebrady, Bohemia. Is it a coincidence that beside the anchor (in the Hohen-family Arms of Prussia) we see a stag, and that the Kyles used both a stag and an anchor in their historical crests? No, this is not a coincidence, and the telling detail is that Hohens were closely related to the Arthurian character, king Cole. As crazy as that sounds, startling evidence is coming soon, when I reveal early Babenburgs in the region of Yorkshire, where king Cole ruled.
I read from Wikipedia that Oda Billung was the daughter of a French prince named Billung. Oda is said to have been born in 806, during the reign of Charlemagne, wherefore if true that she was the daughter of a French prince, she must have been the daughter of a son or grandson of Charlemagne. Others make her father Billung I, count of Thuringia, but I can find no mention in any article on this character, wherefore he may have been fabricated by those who know that the Billungs trace to Thuringia.
As I expect Cohens to appear in Europe from Byzantine interests in northern Italy, especially in Friuli, I would root Oda to the French king of Italy, Carloman (re-named "Pepin"), son of Charlemagne, who was allied to Eric, duke of Friuli. In one a family tree, Oda's mother (Aeda) is a daughter of this same Pepin of Italy, which presumes that Aeda was Pepin's daughter, Atala. However, the dates don't allow for two generations between Pepin (773-810) and Oda (born 806), wherefore I'll take a tentative position that Oda was Pepin's daughter.
I did not know, when choosing Pepin for Oda's possible ancestry, that he plays right into the thick of the legendary Makhir topic, for he "married Bertha, daughter of William of Gellone," the son of Makhir. It's not possible for Oda to have been the daughter of Pepin with Bertha, since Oda's mother was an Aeda. I at first wondered whether Aeda could have been Auda, wife of Makhir, since it's possible for Pepin to have slipped into her bedroom in that he was her husband's son-in-law, but as Auda was born before 724, she would have been at least 70 when Pepin was a man of 20. The better alternative is that Aeda was Auda's daughter, making Aeda a sister of William Gellone (died 812-815) and offering an explanation for the Billung surname...that passed to Oda. That is, "Billung" may have been in honor of "William." As evidence that William's father (i.e. Makhir) was an Avar Hun, William recorded the names of his two wives, writing: "uxoribus meis Cunegunde et Guitburge." The first-named wife smacks of the Huns.
In the course of taking this novel path, where I identified Makhir as an Avar ruler captured by the Franks and then allowed to rule a French district as Theodoric IV, I found that "In 795 or 796, Eric [of Friuli] and Pepin [of Italy], allied with the Western Avar tudun, led an attack which forced the submission of the chief [Avar] khagan and led to the capture of the Hunorum Hringum, or Ring of the Avars, their chief camp. The khagan was taken to Aachen, where he was baptised as Theodorus." Hmm. I have insisted that the Cohen surname derives from "kagan," and perhaps the Cohens stem either from the above-mentioned Avar tudun, or the captured kagan; either option would certainly explain how the Veres were both Cohens and Avars. Note that Wikipedia defines a tudun as a Gokturk or Khazar governor.
I've yet to mention the modern Israeli Defense Forces (IDF), the military arm of modern Zionism, which in Hebrew is, "Zeva Haganah Le-Yisrael" ("zeva/zeve" means "wolf" in Hebrew). In the beginning (1920), the group was simply, "Haganah," said to mean "defense" in Hebrew. I do not find this term in the Bible, however, as it's not in Strong's dictionary (which lists every Biblical word in alphabetical order). The Bible uses other words for "defense," but I would like to know how "haganah" came to mean the same. The Bible uses terms such as "(c)hag" (#2282) and "(c)hagag" (#2287), rooted in the idea of a circle/ring. Hmm. This Haganah Poster of the 1940s shows that the Israeli flag had been in existence before the Israelites turned official statehood (in 1948). The Zionist star, in the white color on blue background, was in existence even in World War I (1914-1918), as we see on this British recruitment poster put out during that war. Both images are from Wikipedia's article on the Haganah.
It should be emphasized that "Ring of the Avars" is literally "Ring of the Huns." That's our first clue to making an Avar connection to Hungarian Kabars, especially as it's theorized by some that "Avar" evolved into "Kabar." Keep in mind that the term "Hungarian" itself is said to derive from "On-Ogur," said to mean "ten arrows." Whether or not this was the true definition originally is not important here, for it may be that the term merely sounded like "ten arrows," wherefore certain families used ten arrows as their symbol. The Vere dragon symbol called "Melusine" was depicted in mythical stories with magic rings of power, and these can perhaps be identified as the Ring of the Avars, which the article describes as "the Avars' ring-shaped strongholds."
I came across circular forts belonging to one Danish king alone; I have yet to form an opinion on whether these Danes were from Varangians:
"Trelleborg is a collective name for six Viking Age circular forts, located in Denmark and the southern part of modern Sweden. Five of them have been dated to the reign of the Harold Bluetooth of Denmark (d. 986). The fort in Borgeby has been dated to the vicinity of 1000 AD, so it is possible that it too, was built by the same king." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Viking_ring_castles
Round forts/houses have been ascribed to Templars as well, for which reason Harold Bluetooth becomes a prime proto-Templar suspect. Since I recalled that Tolkien mentioned an "Avari" tribe of elves, I checked to see what he wrote that might support or add to these findings. I found this:
"In The War of the Jewels, names of six tribes of Avari in their own languages are given, all being cognates of the Quenya word Quendi... Kindi, Cuind, Hwenti, Windan, Kinn-lai, Penni."
These terms evoke the Heneti > Veneti > Wend line known to any seasoned historian. It would appear that in Tolkien's mind, certain Heneti descended from, or were related to, certain Avars. In my mind, this reflects my independent findings that Hungarian Kabars came to Germany as Paphlagonians (i.e. especially the Babenburg/Babel family that produced such terms as "Poppo/Pepin"). Charlemagne thought so highly of the "Pepin" term that he re-named Carloman of Italy by that term, but there may have been more to it. Charlemagne may have known that Carloman was from, or twinned with, the Babenburg bloodline. It so happens that Pepin's mother goes back to rulers of Swabia, where Hohens arose.
Avars of Europe had distinct Hebrew elements, and moreover the Heneti lived beside the Kabeiri-infested Halybes. Isn't it exceptional that the Veneti lived smack beside Friuli, and that the founders of Friuli were Veneti/Heneti themselves? Tolkien's Avari would appear to be the European Avars under discussion here, wherefore Tolkien could lend more clues for unlocking Illuminati secrets to us.
Tolkien had a "Sauron" character as the creator of the magic rings. I identify that term as Taurus and therefore the Taranto line of Spartans leading into the heart of French Europe. Tolkien has Sauron originating from a Maia term, which in Greek myth was the Atlantean peoples who named a region in eastern Italy, the region where we find Abruzzo and therefore the root of the Eburs. Taranto is also in eastern Italy, you see.
I remind you that Adam Weishaupt took the alias, "Sparticus." If you've read my previous material, you may recall that the Taranto Spartans arriving to eastern Italy were called "Phalantos," a term that I connect forward to the founding of Flanders. In this picture, Flemings were not strictly the founders of Flanders, as claimed by some, but I would rather see Flemings as merely involved with the Phalantos Spartans in the founding of Flanders. As I see it, the Kabar bloodline under discussion comes not as the Spartans of Flanders, but as the Fleming Kabars, and if true that Sauron was associated with the Ring of the Avars, I would peg him as the Flanders-Fleming alliance. Keep in mind that Greek myth traced the Sparti to the Ares dragon immediately, and less immediately back to the Tyrians under myth code, Cadmus (I equate Tyre/Tyrus with Taurus).
In Tolkien's work, the rings of power come off as Illuminati circles, each vying for world rule. The Veneti are often said to be the heart of the Rosicrucian Illuminati, but now it would appear that the Avars amid the Veneti played an important part in the "Jewish" Illuminati. I take the position that Arthurian characters, the origin of the Illuminati round table, depicted Rus peoples, and indeed in the Avar Huns we could just have the makings of the Varangian Rus. The Zahringers and Veringens of Baden-Wurttemburg are thus being traced backward in time to the European Avars.
After looking further into Avar history, I learned that the real name of the above-mentioned kazar was Abraham. No more Hebrew name could one have! The second-listed webpage below claims that, after Charlemagne's death, a certain Abraham followed by an Isaac became the Avar kagans. It makes much sense to me that the Cohen surname arose from this batch of peoples. But wherein is historical Melissena? How does she enter the picture?
Since so little is known of the Avars of the final Avar empire, not even the names of their kagans, it's plausible that the Avars allied with Friuli were of the Khazar side of Melissena [I later show excellent evidence, if not down-right proof, that this was so]. For the record, the Khazar side of Melissena was the female side of her father, Theophylactus Rangabe, and later I'll show how the Rangabe term traces to Makhir. As I've taken the view that the first Varangian was Makhir of the Avar kingdom, Melissena's Varangian husband (Inger, born 800-820) must have been a near-immediate descendant of Makhir, probably a grandson, but no more than a great-grandson.
If Billungs do in fact trace forward from Oda Billung to Zahringers, the latter term may just have been fashioned as Zahr-Inger. It may even be that "Zahr" was a version of Czar, a term that some associate with "Khazar." As Aeda was mother to Oda Billung, it can easily explain why Inger named his daughter Eudokia. In this picture, Aeda was Inger's mother, and Oda his sister. If Oda was indeed the daughter of Pepin of Italy, then Inger was Pepin's son. If Pepin was indeed a Paphlagonian/Veneti, ditto for Inger. This picture may be drawn too hastily, but what comes to mind is that Aeda was the Avar element...undergirding Inger's Varangian stock. Pepin was in a perfect position to mate with an Avar.
As Aeda seems to be the fountain of the Billung surname, perhaps she was of Thuringian elements (i.e. as per Billung I of Thuringia), and I do now note that I had traced Taranto to Thuringians. In this foggy mess, the only way that I can trace Inger to both Aeda and Makhir is to make Aeda the sister or wife of Makhir...and it's of course conspicuous that the wife of Theodoric IV of Autun -- who was really Makhir -- is sometimes rendered "Auda."
As I believe that Melissena was the mermaid symbol of the Babel surname, and also because I believe that the Babel/Baben/Pepin-like surnames stemmed from Paphlagonia, my hunch is that the offspring of one Pepin or another was the root of the Babel surname, a better theory yet since Pepin was involved (politically, at least) with Friulians, who were likely Heneti Paphlagonians. It's tempting to view the Babel surname as short for "Babylon." Perhaps "Paphlagonia" was itself rooted in "Babylon." In order for this to be true, I would not read the term as Paph-Lagonia, as I have read it until now, but as Paphla-Gonia. Indeed, as these peoples were also Pamphylians, which I would read as Pam-Phylians, the "Phylia" in the latter term should equate with the "phla" in "Paphla."
Byzantium comes into the Inger picture because Melissena was a Byzantine princess (of the Rhangabe surname), and moreover their daughter, Eudokia, was mistress to an Amorian emperor of Byzantium. I had seen glimpse that this Amorian imperial blood was somehow at the root of Anjou, France. It therefore floored me to discovered that the Arms of Michael I Rangabe were identical to the Bouillon family Coat now displayed at houseofnames.com (Godfrey de Bouillon, first Templar ruler of Jerusalem, comes to mind).
I began to see that the Byzantine-Anjou (or Byzantine-Merovingian) connection occurred through Friuli politics, only to find further that Pepin of Italy, who was the Frank power behind Friuli, married the daughter of William Gellone. At about the same time I had found how Veres of Anjou were connected to William directly, and even theorized on a trace of the Rangabe/Rhangavis term to "Anjou/Anjevin," but it was the Avar connection to the Vero-Gellone family that allowed me to bring the Cohens into the picture so as to explain why the French Fer Coat is identical to the German Cohen Coat.
I followed the leads to find that the Avar who connected to the Gellone family was of the Khazar bloodline in Melissena's ancestry, giving me two options in which to root the Cohen surname, either in the offspring of Melissena herself, or a generation or two earlier in the offspring of the first Avar who came into contact with the Gellone family. It blew my mind to find that the Rangabe and Bouillon symbol was an ancient symbol of the Avars. Look at the Avar Cross (taken from webpage below).
At the same Wikipedia webpage is shown an Avar swastika that so evokes the Rosicrucian symbol of Johannes Andreas that one needs to understand. I had traced Rosicrucianism to the Varangian Rus out of the same intuition that has guided me throughout this book, and only mentioned as a remote theory (some eight years ago) that Varangians stemmed from Avars, and here I now find that Rosicrucianism stems from Avars! I haven't yet proven that Varangians stemmed from Avars, but am in the throws of showing some evidence that Varangians trace to the Franko-Avar family under discussion.
Where have we heard that Rosicrucianism stems from Avars? No one I've read makes this claim. Some have had knowledge enough on the Illuminati topic to root the Illuminati to Venetians, but they didn't mention Avars that were allied to Friuli smack next to Venetia. II am certain that the Illuminati does not wish to be discovered as Avar-based.
The Nazis were recently discovered as a Scandinavian cult of Rosicrucians, and their Nazi swastika is in the same saltire (i.e. x shape versus + shape) position as the Avar swastika. The Wikipedia article shows gold jewelry in the shape of swastikas, from Guilan, a region near Varkana (south Caspian sea), and then connects the swastika to the god of Lithuania, Perkunas, which term I had traced back to Varkana! In my treatment on Guilan, I identified it as Hermes-related Armenia/Cadusia, and in turn I traced this very Armenia to Germanics. Clearly, the Nazis were a Hermes cult, and it's no secret that Rosicriucians honor Hermes.
I now see that the eagle symbol of Venetia, which was no doubt the eagle symbol of the Romans/Latins, stems from "Guilan," for "aquila" is the Latin eagle. Let me repeat that the spouse of Perkunas was Lada = the Biblical Ladon dragon which elsewhere (i.e. aside from Lithuania) put forth the Lydian > Latin line. I long-ago caught glimpse of the origin of the Illuminati eagle in Varkana, and yet when I attempted to write my evidence down for that claim, there really wasn't any. How did I know that the eagle symbol was from Varkana? Here I am, some six to eight years later, with solid evidence toward that idea.
Is it another coincidence that, while I traced the Hermes cult to Taranto, the swastika article shows a "Greek helmet with swastika marks on the top part (details), 350-325 BC from Taranto..."? The article shows swastikas also in the realm of India, and this can be explained by the Avars migrating India way. I identified these Avars as the Mandaen Avars from mythical Tiresias > Daphne (in some myth cases, Tiresias was substituted for Ladon himself). Daphne as the dolphin symbol does indeed lead to Taranto, for this city was founded by the mythical dolphin, Taras, which no doubt depicted a branch of Tiresias, Daphne's father. It can then be surmised that the Daphne cult moved into Sabine territory, where we find Abruzzo and it's city, Aquila. Abruzzo was itself founded by elements of the Abreu surname, and houseofnames.com then reveals that the Abreu surname was first in Padua of Veneti realms. Forgive me for repeating this information yet again, but it's going to be very important when I get to tracing the Ladon dragon to the Leslie surname, for I happened upon some information that traces proto-Leslies to Padua!
It's no secret that while Varangians of Kiev had opposed Byzantium, Inger the Varangian became a military supporter of Byzantium. However, as Friuli had been on friendly/diplomatic terms with Byzantium, beginning just before Inger was born (800-820), I seek Inger in the Friuli theater rather than in the Kiev theater, especially as I feel certain that Melissena must connect to the Veres/Fers of Friuli.
Before 900, Varangians of Kiev were somewhat on friendly terms with Khazars of the Volga. But look at the following (!!) super evidence for a Varangian-Avar connection of still earlier times:
"According to chronicles, Rus' prince Oleg, who in the 9th century had captured Constantinople, had nailed his shield (which had a large red swastika painted on it) to the city's gates" (brackets not mine!!).
Oleg was a Varangian of Kiev, the successor of the "great" Rurik who lived contemporaneously with Inger; the latter had been a Varangian guard in Constantinople (capital of Byzantium). The line of Rurik would provide king Vladimir I and his son, Yaroslav, whose bloodlines would mesh with king Andrew I of Hungary and thus provide the white and red rose lines of Rosicrucianism. As we know that Yarolslav gave at least five of his daughters in marriage to various European kings, in an attempt to spread Varangian powers worldwide, we should half-expect that the Kievo-Hungarian rose lines should merge with the Varangians of Inger's theater. This underlines the importance of finding the parents of Inger, but so far as I can see online, they are unknown.
In such cases of the unknown, I look at the names of the children. In this case, Inger's daughter was Eudokia Ingerina, wherefore I look to a "Eudokia"-like mother for Inger. The task is made easier due to my strong suspicion that Inger was from Makhir. I had written the possibility that "Auda/Aeda" was a term denoting the Autun region of France, but deleted it because a connection purely on similarity of terms is insufficient to found a case. My long-standing theory had been that Autun was named after mythical Aedon, queen of far-away Thebes, and one can see how "Aeda" evokes Aedon. But then William of Gellone entered the Oda topic, and his father was the husband of Auda, known to historians, not as Makhir, but as Thierry/Theodoric IV de Autun! The wheels of my mind started to spin wildly, and I decided to view the Wikipedia statement, "Autun derives from its Latin name Augustodunum," as "nice try, but no cigar."
Theodoric was a Merovingian (= bee worshipers), while Thebes was the capital of the bee-line state of Boiotia/Boeotia, which state had mythical Melia (= "honey") as symbol, a goddess that was allied to the Bebryces peoples. The latter were in Bithynia, smack beside Paphlagonia, and the Autun peoples (called Aedui) lived in the French region of Bibracte. There are now two similarities of terms, Aedon of Thebes with Autun of France, and Bebryces with Bibractes. This is sufficient to start a case for a connection. Interestingly, Hedwig von Babenburg (wife of Oda Billung's son) is also shown online as "Hadui," very close to "Aedui"; Wikipedia even gives an "Hedui" alternative for the Aedui. It could therefore be that Odo/Oda/Otto names were formed in honor of the Aedui peoples. Might they have been the ancient Hatti, who I say were also the Cati? Indeed, I identify Cadmus as code fore the Cati, and he was made (by myth writers) the founder of Thebes.
If one searches online for "Thierry IV" or "Theodoric IV," two different men will come up in France, both living under king Charles Martel. One Theodoric IV (died 737) was a son of the Merovingian king, Dagobert III, and this Theodoric was made a king by Martel. The other Theodoric was a Merovingian on his mother's side, whose death is placed in about 747, a decade after the first Theodoric died. This second one was given the daughter (Auda) of Martel to wed, and this is the one that must have been Makhir. One wonders why the two of them both held the number, IV, and it may be that the second one was, in Charles' mind, an extention of the first. That is, when the Dagobert-related Theordoic died in 737, Martel installed Makhir. I should add that the second one did not likely die in 747, since his son (William of Gellone) was born around 755. It should also be noted that, in this picture, Godfrey de Bouillon, said to be descended from William of Gellone, could not have been from the Dagobert bloodline, but rather from Makhir.
These various things merit further investigation into the Thebean roots of Autun. My contention that the Hebrew side of Merovingians was of the Kabeiri dragon cult is now showing some teeth, for in previous investigations I found that the Kabeiri cult was in Thebes more-so than in all other mainland locations of Greece, and in fact one article said that Thebes was the only mainland center for the Kabeiri cult (they spread elsewhere under different names). There have been various stories concerning William of Gellone and the holy grail, and too many times today the holy grail is falsely connected to an ancestry in king David of Israel and/or Jesus himself. That the holy grail symbol was of the Kabeiri cult is more apparent where Thebes was founded by mythical Cadmus = the Cati (for I identify the pagan holy grail as symbol for the Cati peoples).
If you're a new reader, I identify Cadmus' mythical brother, Cilix, as the chalice=grail line, and while it's widely known that Cilix represented Cilicia, it's not so well known that a Cati peoples lived in Cilicia. It is highly suspect, therefore, that William Gellone was a descendant of the Kabeiri Hebrews whom I found, with absolute certainty, to have been inhabitants of a Phrygian location called "Cilicia." That is, some of the very generators of the Kabeiri cult, for example mythical Eetion and Iasias, were rulers of Phrygian Cilicia. Here's what I wrote in a previous chapter:
"I then went searching other avenues. I came across an interesting website sharing that king Eetion of Thebe (not to be confused with Thebes) was tied to the Kaberi cult...The first thing I learned was that Eetion was identified with Iasion...the very brother of Dardanus, co-founder of Troy...I learned immediately that Iasion was the leader of the Kabeiri cult in the island of Samothrace, where Dardanus lived before founding the proto-Trojans:
"...[Zeus] instructed [Iasion] in the initiatory rites of the mysteries [of Samothrace], which had existed on the island since ancient times but was at that time, so to speak, put in his hands; it is not lawful, however, for any but the initiated to hear about the mysteries. And Iasion is reputed to have been the first to initiate strangers into them and by this means to bring the initiatory rite to high esteem."
There we see the ancient Illuminati, huddled together as snakes in the Aegean islands, isolated from mainland enemies that would have preferred their deaths. It was therefore important to the cult that they develop means by which to disguise their reality and meanwhile cleanse their reputations, by lies, trickery, and codes/symbols amid their writings/arts. I believe that Revelation 17 reveals the Kabeiri-based Illuminati under the phrase "Babylon the Great Mother of Abominations." In Phrygia, the Great Mother goddess was Kybele, known to be the goddess of the Kabeiri cult. She was made married to Atti(s), who may have depicted a Hatti peoples...that put forth the Aedui. This picture easily explains why there is some Hebrew preoccupation, among modern writers, on the Gellone circle of importance.
There were of course more Kabeiri bloodlines in the world than that of William Gellone, but it was his bloodline, via his father, that became infused with the proto-Cohen bloodline so as to bring about the Templar and Rosicrucian cults. The history around Theodoric IV is uncertain; we can't even know whether his Autun side was in his father's bloodline. I will assume that his position of power in Autun was via his marriage to Auda, a seemingly good theory as per the similarity of terms. Someone else agrees: "Alda [= Auda] may have received Autun property thru her mother[,] & her father [Charles Martel] had the power to give it."
Charles Martel's immediate ancestry on the male side destroyed and replaced Merovingian rule, yet he married the Merovingian, Rotrude (died 724), and she was the mother of Auda (born before 724). This, squares with my contention that Auda was of bee-line Boiotians (since I trace Merovingians to Boiotians). Interestingly, while the goddess, Melia, represented Boiotia, note Melissena.
The Boiotian bee line was anciently merged with the Meropian bee-line, for mythical Aedon (of Thebes) was "granddaughter" of mythical king Merops. Aedon was not of Thebes naturally, for she was the daughter of a king of Ephesus (who was in turn the son of Merops). Therefore, proto-Merovingians were an Ephesian peoples, or at least a peoples living/ruling in Ephesus, but who conquered and/or ruled Thebans and thereupon continued to live in their midst. It's known that Ephesus was founded by Amazons, and I'm now of the opinion that mythical Hephaestus, leader of the Kabeiri, was named after Ephesus stock.
My previous theory on the roots of Ingelger (father of the Anjou Fulks) now comes into play. Ingelger (an adult by 870) was given two myth codes for his ancestry: Torquatius and Tortullus. Assuming that the "Tor" prefixes can be ignored in both cases to get at the roots of the codes, we are left with what appears to be Quatius = the Cati holy grail, and Tullus. Although I have another theory for the root of these terms, to be shared much later, it's interesting that Theodoric IV and William of Gellone were both styled rulers of Toulouse, while the Cati of Cadmus' Thebes put forth Theodoric's wife, Auda.
Whatever the two Tor terms turn out to be, my guess at present is that Ingelger belonged to the line of Milo de Vere, otherwise viewed by myself as the line of Melissena, for Melissena's father, Theophylactus Rhangabe, appears to be a version of the "Fulk" name. Remember too that "Rhangabe" looks like "Anjevin," and that Fulks ruled Anjou. My speculation is that Makhir was in reality "Mikhil," and therefore "Milo de Vere" was used (by modern draconian Veres) as code for this Mikhil. As Milo was supposedly the count of Anjou in 740, I'd place his (i.e. Makhir's) birth about 700-720, which fits since Makhir's wife (Auda) was born before 724. Inger fits as father/grandfather of Ingelger (the latter was an adult by 870).
A simplistic version of speculation, serving as a starting point for arriving to the truth, is that Milo de Vere gave birth to Theophylactus Rhangabe (= "of Anjevins"). It is said by moderns that there was a second Milo de Vere about the year 800, and I happen to entertain "Milo" as a version of "Mikhil" simply because I'm pegging the second Milo as Byzantine emperor, Michael I Rhangabe, known to be the father of Theophylactus. This then establishes the Byzantine link to Anjou that I suspected to have somehow formed, and may explain the formation of the Fulk surname. If correct, Ingelger (immediate ancestor of the Fulks) had to stem from the Rhangabe bloodline, and in the process Ingelger's line becomes a Vere bloodline as well. Since Ingelger is expected from the loins of Theophylactus, Melissena's father, she must be closely related to Ingelger, quite possibly his mother.
Another possibilty is that Inger (born shortly after 800) was a Varangian via Ingerman of Hesbaye, whose birth in about 750 fits his being the son or son-by-marriage of Makhir and Auda. Ingerman plays a large role in this story, and represents the key to unravelling the roots of the Vere line in Worms. Details later.
Eudes of Paris (died 898) was married to an Ingeltrude (born 805ish), the name of which makes her a prime suspect for Ingelger's relation. A key can be determined round-about by the fact that the Lorraine side of Godfrey de Bouillon was Godfrey I of Lorraine, whose ancestry was in a child of Eudes and Ingeltrude. Therefore, if the claim is true that Godfrey de Bouillon derived from William Gellone, it seems conclusive that either Eudes or Ingeltrude (or both) stemmed from Gellone...and therefore from Gellone's parents (at least one of which is pegged here as an Avar). If true that the Rhangabe surname was, as explained above, also from Gellone's parents, it could explain why both the Rhangabe and Bouillon surnames use the same symbol (shared also by Avars).
"Eudes" (also "Odo") evokes Eudoxia/Eudokia Rhangabe (i.e. Inger's daughter), so that he too may have been a Rhangabe. The Rhangabe name is then suspect as linking back to Auda, wife of Makhir, and therefore back to the Aedui of Autun, which represented the Merovingian side of the Franks. The problem is, there was a clear distinction between Merovingians and Avars. The solution is, the two became allied royally. Moreover, the Avars should trace to Kabars and therefore to the Kabeiri cult, and this is exactly where the Aedui peoples trace. Again, Merovingians trace to mythical Aedon, stem of Ephesians founded by Hephaestus Amazons, overseers of the Kabeiri cult. In this picture, Avars and Franks were branches from the same stock, which then jibes with a Varangi-Franki equation.
Eudes, as the known son of Robert the Strong, was thereby a Robertian, with ancestry in Ingerman, therefore. Eudes's mother is sometimes thought to be Adelaide (born 795-825), daughter of Hugh of Tours (765-837). Others disagree, and I tend to think the same, for the birth of Eudes is then forced into the mid-860s due to Robert's death in 866 and Robert's marriage to Adelaide in 864. As Eudes earned (i.e. not by inheritance) his French crown by military success, it's doubtful that this in itself would have caused his ascending the throne (in 888), for he would merely have been in his early 20s...if he was the son of Robert and Adelaide. I'm not suggesting that Robert the Strong did not marry Adelaide of Tours, but that the couple did not give birth to Eudes.
It seems much better to assume that Eudes was a man of more years and experience by the time he ascended the throne by the manner that he did. The solution, based on the idea above that Eudes traces back to William of Gellone, is that his mother was of the Rhangabe bloodline, and that because she was born about 800, she should prove to be closely related to Melissena, if not Melissena's Khazar mother. This would make Eudes the brother of Melissena, and perhaps explain why Melissena's daughter was Eudoxia Ingerina (i.e. a near-match with "Eudes"). If this is correct, Eudes becomes a proto-Cohen, wherefore Cohen blood made it to the French throne in 888. If this is correct, then Cohens were at that early time of the Ingerman-to-Robertian bloodline (on one side), which well explains how Cohens and Veres were the same bloodline, not only due to this trace to the Rhangabe line (which was a Vere line), but because I have traced Veres independently to the Ingerman line.
As Robert the Strong was therefore a proto-Cohen, and because I've already found Ingelger to be of the Vere line, Robert must have been related to Ingelger in some way. I suspect with very good reason that Robert mated with Ingeltrude of Orleans (wife of Eudes, Robert's son), which fits not only because Robert was over Anjou, Tours, Le Mans and even Autun while Ingelger (born 840-850) was count of both Anjou and Orleans not long after Robert's death, but because it's logical to assume that Ingelger received his position in Orleans due to Ingeltrude of Orleans being his mother. That is, when Robert died (866), Anjou came under the lordship of Ingeltrude, and so passed to Ingelger, his and her son.
Of note is that Robert was made the count of Anjou by king Loius the Bavarian, the son of Ermengarde of Hesbaye, the daughter of Ingerman (!), though this power transfer should be to no surprise since Robert was himself from Ingerman's ancestry (Robert was the grandson of Ingerman's brother).
In this picture, the Fulks of Anjou stem almost directly from Robert and Ingeltrude, and yet Fulks must trace to the Rhangabe name if true that they were named after Theophylactus. One possibilty is that Ingelger (father of Fulk I) married into the offspring of Theophylactus; the other possibility is that his proposed mother (Ingeltrude) was closely related to Theophylactus.
Hesbaye was directly related to Worms, Germany. Ermengarde of Hesbaye died in Anjou, and for other reasons one can get the impression that the Worms side of the Veres was none other than the Hesbaye bloodline. Until now, the Vere-Worms connection that I've entertained may have lacked solid evidence, but as I now find that Worms > Hesbaye elements came to rule Anjou as counts, chances are that the the Vere and Worms lines merged into one. The non-Worms side of the Veres was the Avar side mingled with Autun elements, and one can expect that the Worms side, the Robertians, married into the Avar-side, with a resulting Varangian-Worms mix. Since it was Robert the Strong who was put in charge of both Anjou and Autun, he must have contacted Veres in both places. My problem was, I had nothing to support my claim that Veres were in Autun...until the next day, when, while researching Autun a little more, I found "Audri of Autun" losing Autun to Guerin of Provence.
This "Audri" name was indeed interesting, for "Aubrey" was a name used by Veres, and I remembered that "Audrey" was an alternative. I verified this when finding that Audrey de Harcourt was also Aubrey(e) de Harcourt. The 1911 edition of Britannica had this to say: "[The founder of Ver, Normandy], Aubrey (Albericus) de Vere, appears in Domesday Book (1086) as the holder of a great fief in Essex, Cambridgeshire and Suffolk." The article suggests that this locality of Ver was the origin of the Vere surname, but I would contend vice-versa, that Ver was named after Veres. By the way, the Robert the Strong in the Harcourt tree at the webage below is not the Robert the Strong under discussion here.
The point I wanted to make above is that Robert the Strong (of Worms) under discussion was granted Autun in 856 (by Charles the Bald), when it was taken away from the dominion of Louis of Bavaria ("The German"), who was the king that had previously taken it from Audri of Autun and granted it instead to Guerin in 842. Since both Audri and Robert had supported Charles the Bald (against Louis), it's feassible (if not expected) that the two bloodlines merged to produce my hypothetical Vere mix with Worms; it's even possible that Robert's line merged with Guerin's (looks like "Vere"), for in 858 (just two years after replacing Guerin in Autun), Robert rebelled against Charles the Bald (i.e. possibly at the instigation of Guerin). Robert was given Autun five years before he acquired Anjou, so that he may not as yet have contacted Veres of Anjou when in charge of Autun. In fact, Robert may have derived power in Anjou just because he had mixed with Veres of Autun.
I was floored to find, also yesterday, that Robert the Strong was shown at a webpage with three wives, one of them unidentified. This helps to confirm a marriage to Ingeltrude of Orleans, as an explanation for the passing of Anjou to Ingelger. The webpage below (as do others typically) shows Robert married to Adelaide of Tours in 864, and yet his son Eudes was born in 856, wherefore the webpage is unreasonable in showing Eudes as the son of Adelaide. In fact, three of Robert's children are listed as sons of Adelaide, and yet all three are shown born before 864! The webpage, aside from dating his marriage to Adelaide in 864, then says: "MARRIAGE: Also shown as Married 854." No wife is given. As I said, since Robert's mother was from Orleans, he could have married Ingeltrude of Orleans; she could even have became "of Orleans" through her marriage with Robert. It's even possible that Ingeltrude's known husband, Eudes of Orleans, was Robert's brother (not the Eudes under discussion, who was Robert's son, styled Eudes of Paris).
As I was investigating the mother's side of Robert, less than 30 minutes after writing the above, I came across the webpage below showing Eudes of Orleans as Robert's brother (both descending from dukes of Swabia as per Gerold I). This may then explain why he would marry Ingeltrude of Orleans, for she was then his brother's wife. It's not known with certainty when Eudes of Orleans died (born about 800), but Robert could have taken his wife lawfully after his death. I have read that he died in 834, well before Robert's marriage to an unknown in 854.
Robert has been styled "Rutpert IV, Count in Wormgau, of Anjou, Blois, Tours, Auxere, and Nevers, killed 15 Sep 866." Orleans is not mentioned. However, the same article shows him to be: "Count Of Paris Robert Duke Of France Count Of ORLEAN." It is suspected that he lost Orleans to Vikings, who in various years took some of his realms, including Anjou, and finally killed him (in Anjou).
Robert's close ties to Orleans are seen more vividly where, Charles the Bald, the king (of France) who made Robert his ally and later bestowed both Autun and Anjou upon him, was married to the daughter (Ermentrude) of Engletrude and Eudes of Orleans! Eudes was dead by the time that Robert arose to the alliance with Charles, meaning that he was free to marry Ingeltrude, which may have been his marriage to the unknown in 854 (Ingeltrude was then 50 years old at the oldest). Indeed, look at the timing: "[Robert] was first nominated by Charles the Bald missus dominicus [in the provinces of Maine, Anjou, and Touraine] in 853." The next year, Robert is married to the unknown woman, while Ingeltrude (Charles' grandmother, remember) was a widow. Two years later, Eudes of Paris was born to Robert, probably named after Robert's brother, Ingeltrude's late husband...thus tending to prove that Ingeltrude was the mother of Eudes of Paris.
Not surprisingly, some webpages push Robert's marriage to Adelaide of Tours 10 years (or more) earlier to accomadate the birth of Robert's first son from her. The problem is, 10 years prior to 864, Adelaide was married to Conrad I of Auxerre: "In 858, [Conrad] and his family — his wife Adelaide and his sons Hugh and Conrad the Younger — abandoned their sovereign Louis the German and went over to Charles the Bald." Moreover, Conrad died in 862/3, making it quite apparent that Robert didn't marry his widow until after that time...which justifies the several websites dating the marriage to 864.
The webpage below, while showing evidence that Robert's father was from Worms, makes mention of a controversy once surrounding Robert's ancestry, as per his father's identification in one source as Theotbert, Count of Autun: "[Robert's] ancestory is a matter of hot dispute. Possible a descendant of Charles Martel. The genealogy from the 'Dictionary of Royal Lineage' has Robert's father as Theotbert, Count of Autun."
Another page on this topic has this to say: "The second source identifies the father of Robert (The Strong) as one of three possibilities. The source selected Theotbert, Count of Madrie (Autun) [RN 26160] who died in 830 and is identified by ALLSTROM. Theotbert was the son of Nivelon I Nebelung (Niebelung), the Historian, Count of Autun & Burgundy who died in 805; grandson of Childebrand I who died in 753; great grandson of Pepin II, Count of Heristal..." The latter was a Pippinid, but in any case this ancestry for Robert is apparently discounted today.
One important point that we can take away from this is that Theotbert of Autun, and his father, also of Autun, lived just one or two generations after Makhir of Autun, and may therefore have been Makhir's descendants. Remember, Makhir (throne name, Theodoric) married the daughter of Martel, wherefore if Theotbert was descended from Theodoric, it would make the above claim true that Theotbert was a: "possible a descendant of Charles Martel." When I wrote the paragraph above, I had no idea yet what extreme importance the Nebelung term would have in this Illuminati story, for connecting to Jerusalem's pre-Israeli inhabitants: the dragon cult of Zeus and Hera. Never in the wildest imaginings of a best-selling fiction writer would the idea be born of Zeus and Hera in Jerusalem, but here in this story of real history, it is exactly what I have been led to uncover. If I'm correct, Theotbert traces back to the Zeus cult of Jerusalem.
I went seeking like a mad dog for evidence of anything that could disclose Theotbert's connection to Makhir, and unbelievablably I found someone dealing with the topic in a scholarly piece. It first tells that "The wife of King Pepin I [of Aquitaine, not Italy] is called 'filia Theotberti comitis'" That is, Pepin married the daughter of count Theotbert. The article then identifies her name, via a poem written to Pepin, as Ringart/Irmgart...and yet Wikipedia (in it's Pepin article) and others translate this name as "Ingeltrude"...because Pepin was married to an Ingeltrude. Rather, it seems plain enough that "Irmgart" is the typical "Ermengarde"?
The article then reveals Theotbert's daughter as "sororem Robertus." Sister of a Robert, that is, making Robert a son of Theotbert, and yet we don't know that this was Robert the Strong. As we don't know who Theotbert married, he could have married into the Robertian fold, explaining how Robertians (via Robert the Strong) came to rule in Autin just after Theobert's line did so. The article shares a key quote from "a charter of Pepin King of Aquitaine dated 12 Mar 836," but unfortunately, the quote is shared in the original language, and, as is the author's bad habit, he/she isn't kind enough to translate it for those of us who can't quite make it out fully/accurately:
"...uxoris nostræ Ingeltrudæ reginæ et…Hermeingardæ quondam reginæ genetricis nostræ, Thetberti ac Nebelungi comitum, patris et avi eiusdem Ingeltrudæ."
It should be said that the webpage claims as "spurious" the charter of Pepin from which this quote is taken, but this particular quote seems to be solidly true. We see two reginas=queens, one that can describe Pepin's mother (Ermengarde of Hesbaye), and the other (Ingeltrude) his wife from Theotbert, thus agreeing with the other report(s) that this Pepin married a daughter of Theotbert. My best shot at translating the quote is this: "...our queen Ingeltrude and...Ermengarde the previous queen our mother, Theotbert of count Nebelung, father and grandfather of the same Ingeltrude." I would therefore conclude that Theotbert had two daughters, Ermengarde and Ingeltrude, which makes it appear as though he was indeed related to the Hesbaye bloodline.
It's interesting that these two female names together evoke Armenia's god, Angl-Thork. It's even more interesting that this was a god of the Yervand dynasty of Armenians, while I have traced the Gareb hill of Jerusalem to Jerevan, Armenia.
I found that the translated webpage, LES PIPPINIDES NIBELUNGEN, makes "Ingeltrude of Autun" the wife of Pepin of Italy, which apparently takes this same Ingeltrude of Theotbert and links her to the wrong Pepin. This website writes: "Theodebert (770-822), fils de Nibelung II et de Berthe d'Autun, Comte de Madrie (802-822)." I note that this Nibelung II is given the date of 805 as his death, matching the date of death for Nibelung I in the quote further above (i.e. the same man is being cited with different numbers). The point is, we see Theodbert's mother as Bertha of Autun, while William of Gellone (died 812ish) had either a daughter or a sister (or both) by that name. If Bertha was Theotbert's mother, I would have to say that he was of the Makhir bloodline. As Makhir (William's father, remember) was styled, Theodoric, a marriage between his Bertha and Nebelung can explain the naming of a son, Theotbert.
For your information only (I won't comment on it), another webpage on this topic has the wife of Childenbrand II as "Bertha De AUTUN...Children were: Theodoric De VERMANDOIS." Here we have yet another Theod name as a result of a marriage to a Bertha of Autun. Note the Worm-like root of "Vermandois."
The Les Pippinides link above shows the Theotbert line, at Thierry III count of Vexin (Normandy), becoming also the count of Valois. The Vexin was previously overseen by Nebelung II, Theotbert's father. By what circumstances did peoples in and around Autun get to rule far to the west in the Vexin? This may be an important key for those who seek the roots of Rollo the Viking, and his wife, "Poppa of Valois," for the Vexin was that part of Normandy where Rollo (a century after Nebelung) positioned his seat of power. The answer should be in the Vikings before Rollo, for they sought to take larger regions of France, and as I've said, they succeeded in taking Autun a few times, and even killed Robert the Strong.
The theoretical conclusion is that it was Vikings from the Vexin that had taken Autun, resulting in a mingling of Viking blood with that of Makhir's (this could explain how Veres became Varangian-branch Vikings). One website puts it this way: "The second son, Childebrand the Second, was the father of Nivelon the Second, who appears to have continued the line of the Counts of Madrie and to be of the same stock as those of Vexin." That is, the father of Theotbert was of Vexin stock, so that Theotbert was likewise. However, Theotbert's father, in marrying Makhir stock, also gave Theotbert some Vere blood, which can then explain why Veres ended up living in Ver, Normandy.
I was hoping to avoid discussing Madrie in order to keep this shorter, but Madrie turns out to be in the thick of things for my long-standing theory that Normandy was founded by the Abreu surname. I realize that a lot of heads would shake at such a wild conclusion, but I didn't think it was a coincidence that the Abreu Coat used two gold lions on red, the symbol (but with lion-position changed) also of Normandy. The reason that I didn't think this was a coincidence was that I traced "Abreu" to Evreux, in Normandy, and then identified the Abreu surname as the root of the Ebroicum Celts (who named Evreux), which I had identified as a Hebrew-Celt peoples from Aphrodite and her Kabeiri cult. As I looked into Madrie, I found not much more than this at Wikipedia: "As Madrie (Pagus Madriensis, later pays de Merey) it was a pagus in the north of Gaul lying between the Seine river and the rivers Eure and Iton."
Not knowing my French geography very well, I checked to find the location of Merey/Madrie, and found that the Iton river flows through Evreux, and that the land between the Seine and the Eure is smack next to Evreux. The Vexin was directly across the Seine river from Evreux. Therefore, the Nebelung family was seated in the Evreux-Vexin region. Aphrodite's husband (Hephaestus) represented the proto-Kabeiri cult that I equated with Aten/Aton of Egypt, a god reflecting "Iton" very well. Keep reading for yet another clue to an Aten > Nebelung link.
Veres of Normandy came to use red and gold colors at some point, which begs the question of where the color link occurred to Normandy's red and gold. I identified the red and gold quartered Vere Coat with the red and gold checks of the Baux/Vaux peoples of southern France. Is it a coincidence that Childebrand (son of Pepin II de Herstal) is styled "Seigneur de Baugy"? (See LES PIPPINIDES NIBELUNGEN.) The same title is given to Childebrand's son, Nebelung, and to the Nebelung line up to Echard (810-876), son of Childebrand III. As the Veres are (in my picture) the first Cohens, it should explain the Cohen checks of the Vaux Coat.
My theory is that the Baugy surname was the Vaux term that named the Vexin, and that Normandy's red and gold colors were founded therein. Apparently, the red and gold of Vaux was connected to the red and gold of Abreu stock, though it's interesting that both the Vaux and Abreu terms originate in northern Italy. The locality of Baugy, though about 100 miles west of Autun and not very near to Evreux, is nonetheless at Bourges, which was "Avaricon" to the Gauls, but named after the Berrichon Celts. These terms smack of "Ebroicum" and "Abr(eu)," though this might be coincidental. Note that the Arms of Autun uses an upright red lion on gold, the reversal of the Abreu colors. The Avaricum term certainly smacks of the Avars, and may lend a clue to an Avar root for the Abreu/Ebroicum peoples.
The non-Avar side of the Veres was in Worms-based Robertians of Autun and Anjou, and so note the red and gold of the Arms of Worms. Another pertinent point is that the red lion on gold became the Wells Coat, which surname was an alternative of "Vaux." Not only does a Wells-surname webpage claim that "Wells" was a "Vaux" branch/variation, but in these two Wells Coats (from webpage below), the gold star on red matches the Scottish Vaux Coat.
This is my first sight of the Arms of Autun. I sought more on Autun coats of arms, and found the following key statement (from this Adobe publication, page 173): "Autun, the old Druidical city...On the Arms of Autun were, first the Druidical serpent, and then the hog..."
The evidence will later show that Nebelungs were, or evolved into, a Rus peoples, namely Varangians. Therefore, see this large white rose on red that's the Dutch Nobel Coat, and ask if this surname isn't Nebelung-related. After all, there is evidence, aside from the following also, that Nebelungs used red and white. I could find just one more Nebel-like surname, the English Nevels surname, using a white saltire on a red background.
The French Vaux Coat uses red roses (on gold). I recall tracing the Wells surname to the Wallis canton where we find Sitten/Sion. I also recall tracing the white rose to the white-lion fold of Montfort, which surname (of Normandy) was traced back (by me) to Monferrat (north Italy), which was moreover identifed as a Fer-branch location. I happened to trace the Montfort surname to Monfort in the Langhe region of Cunea and noted that the Montfort surname (as per Simon de Montfort), as an extention of the Vielles surname (in the Beaumont fold), came to rule Lancaster briefly...just before Lancaster was taken (from the Montforts) by the red-rose-depicted rulers, starting with Edmund Crouchback. His mother traces back through a long line of Savoy rulers, but I tend to trace the red rose to the Plantagenet surname that was Crouchback's father, king (of England) Henry III Plantagenet.
Recall that I traced the red triple chevron, on gold background, which was a symbol adopted by the Viking family of Clare , to the Berg surname...that married into the royal Sinclairs of Normandy. I suspected that the triple-chevron symbol traced back to the Egyptian pyramids, and though it was a wild guess, note that between Autun and Baugy there is the city of Nevers, what I am certain was a land founded by the Nefertiti cult of Egypt. As I identified "Nefer(titi)" with mythical Nephele, is it a coincidence that "Nebelung" smacks of the same? Look it. We have Nevers smack beside Baugy, and then we have the Nebelung family with interests in Baugy. I' can then see that Autun was named after the Egyptian god, Aten/Aton, while Nevers was named after Nefertiti, for he/she was foundational to the Aten cult. Plus, I have already traced Autun to Meropian Ethiopia, while a trace of the Aten cult traces to the same realm (also called "Punt"), as we shall see.
The conclusion is that England was founded by the Ingelger bloodline, even though it's known alternatively that England was an extention of Normandy. There is a way to reconcile these things. When I traced Ingelger's line to Harcourt Danes of Torville association, I had not understood the Ingelger connection between Anjou and the Torville Danes (at Paris). It would now seem to be in Rollo's Danish Vikings, as they mixed with Veres over the years, and therefore with the Ingelger portion of the Veres.
One can ask if "Viking" was a take on "Vexin," or vice versa. If so, a Viking link to the Vaux term is likely. The Vaux are said to have been Goths from northern Italy, and this of course fits a Viking picture, since Goths were earlier in Scandinavia. A Goth-Avar (or Vaux-Avar) mix must be assumed in defining Vikings. That is, a Goth mix with Hebrews of the dragon bloodline. Goths of northern Italy came under Byzantine authority before the Nebelung era, but eventually we find Nebelungs in the Vexin. Since we see the Nebelung family tied to both Baugy and the Makhir Avars, the Avar-Vaux mix must be viewed also with Nebelung elements. As per my claim that Makhir chose "Theodoric" as his political name, it's conspicuous that Goths of north Italy were led by Theodoric I (5th century), who signed an agreemnent with Roman powers to allow his Goth people a settlement in southern France. Although it was 300 years later, the unknown Theodoric of Autun (= Makhir) turns up as a ruler in southern France:
"The county of Autun is one of the first Burgundian counties to be mentioned in primary sources. The first recorded Comte d'Autun is Theoderic [I], whose origins are not known definitely but who was most probably related to the Carolingian family of Childebrand/Nibelung (see CAROLINGIAN NOBILITY). His descendants continued to hold the county of Autun until Bernard Marquis of Septimania lost it in 830. No record has so far been found of the rulers of the county from that date until 864, when it was awarded to Bernard 'Plantevelue' son of the previous Comte Bernard" (square and round brackets not mine).
We see that the region of Autun was in Burgundy, a term smacking of "Bourges," which is conspicuous in the face of the fact that Nebelungs, though in Bourges, are known to have been a branch of Burgundians...who derived from the island of Bernholme. The Arms of Bornholm shows a wyvern dragon, the species used for the Vere dragon.
The article goes on to identify the unknown Theodoric as the father of Willelmus of Gellone, Comte de Toulouse, Marquis de Septimanie, and gives recorded evidence for the names of William's brothers: Theodoino and Theodoric (not to mention Adalelmo). More Italian names are evident in the sons of William, registered as "Barnardo, Witchario, Gotcelmo, Helimbruch." This Barnardo (795-844) was count of Septimania (also styled "of Narbonne"), but banished from Autun in 830, into Septimania, though from there he ended up in Spain. After his death (844), we find "filio Bernhardi" (i.e. his son) siding militarily with Pepin of Aquitaine, which makes sense because Pepin married Ingeltrude (822), daughter of Theotbert. These points are evidence that the Nebelung > Theotbert line married into the Makhir line during or before the time of Bernard's son in Spain. The Catholic Encyclopedia says that Bernard's father (William Gellone) is styled by some as "Duke of Aquitaine."
Bernard's son was known as Bernard Plantevelue. We of course see immediately a similarity with Plantagenet of Anjou. I don't buy the going story as to how Geoffrey Fulk got his Plantagenet surname, and would prefer a more logical origin. I might not mention a Plantagenet link to the earlier Plantevelue term except for the fact that Gellone's son, count Theodoric, "ordered the restitution of property at Baugy claimed by 'Fulchardus advocatus…Nivelongo comiti' in a charter dated Apr 818" (webpage above). That is, Fulchardus was the advocate of count Nebelung, and the two won a judgment thanks to the uncle (count Theodoric) of Bernard Plantevelue. I doubt very much that it's a coincidence for the Fulch-based name to appear in conjunction with Plante(velue) while Geoffrey Fulk later got "Plantagenet" as his surname. If not a coincidence, I'd have to say that Fulks descend from the Fulchardus term, and I do note the similarity with "(Theo)Phylactus."
I should add that Fulks are hereby traced to the threshold of the Nebelung merger with Gellone's family, giving reason to seek a deeper Fulk root in Nebelung history. Was Ingelger a Nebelung, in other words? Thus far I have made Ingelger the son of Ingeltrude of Orleans and Robert the Strong, and will later show that Robertians were Nebelungs to some pointed degree even if Robert the Stromg was not the son of Theotbert (son of Nebelung II). The fact that Theotbert named a son, Robert, would suggest a Nebelung link to Robertians in some way, and later I'll show that Hesbaye elements (at the root of Robertians) were joined closely to Nebelungs.
Understand fully what I'm leading to, by no pre-meditation on my part: after i discovered that Templars sought to conquer Jerusalem because they trace back to Jerusalem's Amorites, I independently traced Nebelungs to Jerusalem's Amorites (details not yet given), so that the topic at hand that appears to independently trace Fulks to Nebelungs becomes important because Fulk V became a Templar ruler of Jerusalem. If it can be shown that Fulks descend from Robertians, the whole lot of them are then identified as Amorites from Jerulsaem. If you're thinking that there's just no way to discover where Jerusalem's Amorites migrated after leaving Israel so long ago, let me assure you that there are ways, and that I think I have found several.
The birth of Bernard Plantevelue in 841 matches the time of Ingelger's birth near enough to disqualify a father-son relationship. Judging from the family records, the Fulks did not issue from Bernard's male side, wherefore his mother is suspect. She was Dhuoda (died after 843), of "a noble family," says the Catholic Enyclopedia, though nothing else is given of her background or even her date of birth. One website makes her Dhuoda of Gascony, daughter of Sancho, duke of Gascony, but no explanation is given for this position.
Then I found the answer in a very logical quote, revealing one parent of Dhuoda. The problem is in an ancient record revealing a certain Heribert as the "brother" of Bernard of Septimania, father of Bernard Plantevelue. The quote below solidly shows that Heribert was instead the brother-in-law, and in so being he was Dhuoda's brother, thus revealing one of her grandparents as his known grandparent. Very cool work. Wait till you find out who this known parent was. First, here's the quote:
"...Odo of Orleans was a first couson (consobrinus) of a Heribert who was blinded in the course of Lothar's uprising in 830; this Heribert was the frater of Margrave Bernard of Septimania (d. 844). In the Manual of Bernard's wife Dhuoda, Heribert is described as the avunculus (maternal uncle) of Bernard's sons. The term 'avunculus' does not easily extend to paternal uncle (which 'patruus' serves). But 'frater' extends readily to 'brother-in-law.' Clearly, Dhuoda was Heribert's sister, and one of their parents was a sibling of Odo's mother, that is Waldrada."
Waldrada was the grandmother of Robert the Strong (!!), wherefore Bernard Plantevelue derives from Robertians, but that's not the biggest shocker. I was suspecting that Dhuoda was a Nebelung, and so hoping to find her Nebelung parent. As soon as I learned from the above that one of her parents was a sibling of Waldrad, I Googled Waldrada and Odo, and read this: "...Waldrada, a Nibelungid"!!! Here I thought I was in the throws discovering something of a great key as-yet unkown, but someone had known all along.
So what do we have? Commonly, Waldrada (usually "Waldrat") of Hornbach is found as Odo's mother, and Waldrat of Orleans was her daughter (and Odo's sister). The website below, which at least explains it's positions, shares a record having a "Waldrada" of unknown parentage giving birth to Odo of Orleans. We then see "Wialdruth" as Odo's sister, and she married Robert III to give birth to Robert IV The Strong. Therefore, the Waldrada who is commonly styled, "of Hornbach," was Odo's mother, and she with her unknown sibling -- the mother of Dhuoda and Bernard Plantevelue -- were Nebelungs, wherefore it follows that at least one of Waldrada's parents was a Nebelung. Where a parent is given, it's usually Lambert of Hornbach.
The Wikipedia writer doesn't tell how he/she arrived at a Nebelung ancestry for Waldrada of Hornbach, but it's interesting that the mother of her husband (Hadrian of Orleans)', Imma of Swabia, had duke/count Nebi of Alemannia as a father. The website above says: "IMMA daughter of NEBE [Hnabi] Duke of Alemannia & his wife Hereswint..." Date of birth for Nebi is 700-710, and death in 788; these dates reflect the time of the Nebelung whose birth is as early (online) as 705 and whose death was before 786. Perhaps they were brothers, perhaps they were the same man. Assuming that Imma was a Nebelung, it would appear that Waldrada, herself a Nebelung, married a Nebelung line. In this picture, Robert the Strong had at least two Nebelung grandparents.
How interesting that Ingelger came out of Orleans. If I'm correct to have made him the son of Robert the Strong, the Fulks were indeed Nebelungs. This easily explains why a Fulchardus was an advocate of a Nebelung lord. One way for both Ingelger and Bernard Plantevelue's line to have contributed to the birth of Fulk I (an adult/count by 898) is for Ingelger to have mated with Bernard 's sister. Keep in mind that this sister would have been a grandchild of William Gellone, as Bernard himself was, and therefore a Rhangabe. Amazing, isn't it, that TheoPhylactus Rhangabe lived in the first half of the 800s, exactly when Fulchardus (an advocate in 818) lived?
As we know Bernard's father, who wasn't surnamed Plantevelue so far as it's not a surname attached to him, the surname must have derived from his mother, Dhuoda. I asked whether "Plante" was somehow rooted in "Billung," and then remembered the variations, Planque and Planquette, included at the houseofnames.com webpage for the French Plante surname. There is indeed a distinct similarity between "Billung" and "Planq." As Dhuoda's mother was a sibling of Waldrat of Hornbach, perhaps the Plante term was from Hornbach, or something near it. I note that not far from Hornback is Lampertheim (near Worms), a possible origin for Lambert of Hornbach (supposed father of Waldrat).
There is a Hornbach east of Saarbrucken in the Sudwestpfalz district. It's interesting but no longer a surprise that a region having as a root term what appears to be a "Paphl" variation should use a red triple chevron (on gold), seen in the Arms of Suedwestpfalz. The article from which this is taken says: "The three red bars on golden ground in the left half is the coat of arms of Hanau-Lichtenberg." Later, I'll explain how this symbol of Hanau passed to the Dutch Burghs and the Clares. I was amazed when I found it in Hanau, for I had a hunch so strong that it was a Rothschild and/or Rhodes Illuminati symbol that I published the idea without much evidence. Hanau happens to be an outskirt of Frankfurt, the city where the first Rothschild was born.
I should add the following quote here:
"'Pippinus maior domus' donated property to the abbey of St Denis by charter dated 11 Feb 747, which names 'fidelibus nostris…Haginone, Theudeberto, Remedio, Gerehardo, Fulgario..." (italics mine).
Fulgario? The Pippinus in the quote is Pepin III, Mayor of the Palace, and father of Charlemagne. I view this Pepin (and his Pepinid family) as a Babenburg Paphlagonian (others who know this tiopic view him in close association with Merovingians). I don't know the historical/political meaning of "fidelibus nostris," but it sounds like "our loyal supporters. The date of 747 seems a little early for Theodberto to be the Theotbert under discussion here, but if they were related, then both were Nebelungs.
The suspicion, since Nebelungs are being traced (here) to Upper Egypt and Punt (I'll discuss this more later), is that Nebelungs were either the basis of Merovingians themselves, or closely related to Merovingians (as far back in time as the Punt/Ethiopian region?). I was led to discover (details soon) that Nebelungs and Babenburg Paphlagonians were either one or closely tied, and if this is correct, Babenburgs are suspect as part of the Merovingian fold. If correct, it's of major interest, for it assists in tracking important Merovingians after their demise to Charlemagne's dynasty.
As I trace Babenburgs to Paphlagonia (Phrygia environs), it should be interesting to find where in the Phrygia area proto-Merovingians passed, and as whom. Thus far I believe that proto-Franks were Phrygians themselves. I would like to find more specifics, however, and one other clue we have is that Franks derive from the Taurus = Zeus cult, which was the Trojan family of peoples. The founders of Troy (Dardanus side) were also the founders of the Kabeiri cult so that Merovingian association with Anatolian Amazons is thereby known. I expect to find Merovingian roots in that part of Phrygia ruled by mythical Pelops, since it's understood (by many others besides myself) that Franks derive from the Heneti. The question then is, were the Heneti who lived in Paphlagonia Paphlagonians, or something else that came to live among Paphlagonians. And what were Paphlagonians anyway, prior to arriving to the Phrygia domain?
Can you see in the above statements how close Nebelungs had to be to Merovingians since both have been traced (by me) to Paphlagonia? I tell you no lie, that while I had known for years that Merovingians traced to the Heneti Paphlagonians, I traced Babenburgs to Paphlagonians independent of that understanding. Reasons will be shown later.
I found this Adobe publication, page 219 that sheds some light:
"...Fulk [III] had established Fulchardus of Rochefort as the vicarius of Saumuer, where he served directly under Geoffrey [son of Fulk III]. Rochefort was a key stronghold in the Anjevin defense system...twenty-eight kilometers upriver [on the Loire] from the newly constructed military complex of Saint-Florent-le-Vieil, where men from both Fulk's and Geoffrey's clientela, or military households, would be detailed to serve as garrison troopers" (underscore mine).
Another Fulchardus. One can sense that Fulks had been surnamed after a certain Fulchardus, and the finger points to the advocate.
Note the underlined "Viell" term, for it smacks of the Vielles surname of Torville. I had an inkling once that Ingelger's father belonged to Torville, which place was also "Torcy." Ingelger's legendary/mythcode grandfather and father were made Torquatius and Tortulus respectively (no one knows who these men were). The latter term evokes Torfulus de Harcourt (born after Ingelger's birth), father of Turchitel de Harcourt, whose brother, Tourude, was the father of Humphrey de Vieilles (born after 980). I don't think these similarities are coincidences; I think Ingelger stemmed from this Torville family, wherefore he was a Harcourt on one side. Underdstand that I had traced Ingelger to Torville for yet another reason (i.e. before I saw these similarities of terms), though at that time I had no reason to link him to the Vielle surname. Nor did I have any clue as to how a Torville family of Danes could link to Anjou, but suddenly the similarity between Viell and Vieilles may give the answer. Furthermore, I knew that the Danes of the period used three blue lions on gold, and although I suspected that this symbol traced to Anjou's three gold lions on blue, I didn't know how.
The Vieilles surname (the term means "old" in French) may have been play-on-words from "Veulles" (can be found online as the alternative of "Vieilles"), what may have been the truer spelling. When I searched "Veulles" just now, I found the following location close to Humphrey de Vieilles birthplace: "Small city of Veulles Les Roses along the coast of Normandy France." Humphrey was born in Pont Audemer, Normandy (where his father had ruled), directly west of Rouen (= Rollo's capital) and near the Atlantic coast. Humphrey de Vieilles was so styled after the village if Vieilles, which Wikipedia says is now part of the commune of Beaumont-le-Roger (named after Humphrey's son) in the Eure departement, Normandy. In the course of this search, I found Varengeville, on the ocean coast just 10 miles from Veulles Les Roses.
With Ingelger now linked to Harcourt Danes, his association with Rollo becomes possible, for the two men lived contemporaneously. I cannot find the location of Valois, Normandy, where Rollo's wife was supposedly linked, but while Torville is today a suburb on the south-east of Paris, the region of Pays de Valois, where we find the community of Crepy-en-Valois, is on the northeast side of Paris (but Paris was not in Normandy). Apparently, Crepy-en-Valois was named after the Crepon-surnamed Danes, a surname that will become very important later, when I investigate whether it was in honor of Gareb hill at Jerusalem. In fact, I was led to identify Rollo's family as Garebites most overwhelmingly (!) even without a Rollo connection to the Crepon surname (details later), though it was this surname, in part, that tipped me off. If I am correct in this, it is a spectacular discovery. In the course of that investigation, I was led to discover that Nebelungs lived smack beside the Gareb hill!! Therefore, if I am correct in identifying the Fulks as Nebelungs, Ingelger's ancestry traces back to a stone's throw from ancient Jerusalem.
The Valois-surname Coat, like the Plante/Plantagenet Coat, uses a red rose on white background. Crepons married both the Harcourts and the Rollo line at about the same time, so that this might explain the founding of Crepy-en-Valois. I cannot find a Crepon Coat, but the German Crab Coat comes up with red and white diagonal bars. It just could be that the Crab surname traces from Grabfeld/Crepfeld (in Germany). Grabfeld is in Thuringia, and I have already shown the red and white striped lion of Thuringia.
Some sources suggest that Tourude de Harcourt (the family to which I tentatively trace Ingelger) married a Crepon, perhaps Wevia Crepon. Could this be evidence that Ingelger's ancestry traces back to Garebites or neighbors who lived beside Gareb hill? Or is it a coincidence that I have traced Nebelungs and Crepons independently back to Gareb and a hill adjacent to it?
Why did Wevia's father, Herbastus de Crepon, name Wevia's sister, Avelina? Wikipedia tells that the ancient name of Avallon, in Burgundy, was a Celtic name, "Aballo," evoking Apollo. Is it a coincidence that Apollo turns up at the Syrian city of Harbiye (more-anciently the city of Daphne, though keep in mind that Apollo and mythical Daphne were as one peoples at one time). Moreover, Harbiye was near mount Okreb (another name for mount Saphon), and Apollo's symbol was made the harp (I later show that the harp symbol depicts Arphaxadite "Hebrews" who migrated from Jerevan to Gareb hill)? Remember, Nebelungs were a branch of Burgundians, and Avallon was in Burgundy. How close does this come to identifying the Arthurian cult as Garebites or their Nebelung neighbors?
Grabfeld was Babenburg and Hohen country!! Does this then incite me to identify C/Hohens and/or Babenburgs as Garebites, or Nebelungs who lived on a hill adjacent to Gareb??? You bet your ace of clubs.
I'll record here the red and white diagonal lines of the Belgian Gohn/Kohn Coat (looks like "Cohen"), which reflects the diagonal bars of the Arms of Burgundy, which in turn are quite identical to the French Nered Coat, a surname evoking Nerthus, the Mother Earth goddess of the Angles, Varni, Reudigni, and Eudoses (the latter evoking "Eudes" and perhaps the proto-Aedui of Autun).
The worshipers of Nerthus were on the Baltic mainland in front of the island of Bornholm; the latter is where Burgundians lived before finding themselves in the Avallon-Autun-Nevers region. This serves as tentative evidence that 1) the Angles moved down too, to name Angers and Anjou; 2) the Varni became the Varangians; and 3) the Eudoses came south too, to found Autun. I root the Rus to the Redones and the Rusi of Rodez, meaning that I distinguish between the Varangians and the Rus, though the two came to an alliance so as to become the Varangian Rus. A good theory is that the Varangian Rus were a Varni-Reudigni mix. Perhaps there was a Varni-Angli-Reudigni mix for producing the VarAngian Rus.
The "velue" In "Plantevelue" may have been a play-on-words, since it means "hairy" in French. This has caused much speculation as to what the entire surname might be defined as, or derived from. Did it really mean "hairy plant"? I doubt the man was named as such. Perhaps the Vuelles surname traces back to Bernard Plantevelue. This makes good sense, for if Ingelger the proto-Fulk was related to Humphrey de Vuelles (of Torville association), then perhaps Bernard was connected to the Vuelles surname, for Bernard was also a proto-Fulk...if indeed his surname was the basis of "Plantagenet." Again, Bernard and Ingelger were contemporary, so that both their lines may have made their way to Torville.
My guess is that Ingelger's Torquatius/Tortulus line was ancestral to Humphrey's father (= Tourude de Harcourt, brother of Turchitel). Humphrey then had good reason to marry into the line of Bernard, thus taking on the Velue portion of his surname. It was a bit staggering to find that this line married Robert the Dane. Here's how Wikipedia puts it: "[Humphrey de Vieilles] early life and origins are the subject of much discussion. He was the grandson of Torf (or Turolf), who some historians identify with Turstin le Riche, the father-in-law of Robert the Dane..." The problem I had, you see, was with my theory that Ingelger's father was Robert the Strong. If I then viewed Ingelger's ancestry in the stock of Torville Harcourts, it necessitated that Robert the Strong be among those Harcourts. But how could I find evidence for such a thing, that was the wee problem. The above quote might just serve as evidence. That is, did Robert the Dane get his name from being related to Robert the Strong?
Robert the Dane was also styled count Robert of Evreux, and archbishop of Rouen (wife was Herleva de Rouen). He was the son of Richard I (Sinclair), duke of Normandy. As Rouen was the capital of Rollo, it's interesting that he was also "Robert." Don't tell me that Rollo was a Robertian??? I mean, was he somehow? Although his father is known, his mother is not known with certainty. His mother (Hilda) was the daughter of Hrolf Nefia (parents not known) of Norway. Since Rollo was also called "Rolf," it's evident that he was named in honor of his mother's side. I do note his grandfather's surname, Nefia, as it reflects the Nefer/Nebel terms quite well. I didn't know about this surname until after tracing Poppa (Rollo's wife) to the Babenburg sector of the Nebelung family. If correct, Rollo may have been a Nebelung who married a Nebelung.
The ancestry of Geoffrey Plantagenet, on his mother's side, goes back to his great-grandfather, John de Baugency. Hmm, weren't Nebelungs of Baugy? While there's a Baugy is in what is now Saone-et-Loire, Baugency (now "Beaugency") is in Loiret (hmm, I am about to show my discovery that Nebelungs used a red triple chevron on white, which may then begin to explain why it is also the symbol of Eure-et-Loir). John de Baugency's son (Elias) married the daughter (Matilda) of a certain Gervais (i.e. looks like "Gareb/Jerevan"), and together they gave birth to Fulk V, king of Jerusalem. Coincidences? Or were these people from Garebites of old???
Recall that "Baugy" is also a variation of "Bourges" (the capital of the Cher departement). Then know that John of Baugency married a daughter of Heribert of Maine, who in turn may have been the ancestor of Hugh II, count of Bourges (see web-tree here/below). This Hugh was the great grandson of Hugh of Tours; the daughter of the latter married Robert the Strong (died 866), the Nebelung. Whether I'll ever be able to iink the line of these Hughs to Bernard Plantevelue (born 841), I do not know, but if I ever do, I'd be convinced that it leads to the first Plantagenet on his mother's (i.e. non-Fulk) side.
Some sources suggest that Humphrey had a Crepon for a mother (perhaps Wevia), who may have been the granddaughter of Harald Gormsson Blaatand of Denmark. My hunch, to be explored here, is that the Flaad term that brought forth the first-known Stewarts was earlier "Blaat." I found that "Saxo (Book 9) makes [Thyre/Tauri] a daughter of Aethelred [I] of England (d. > 871)" (square brackets mine). The article also gives another possible father, but Aethelred looks like the best option. Thyre was the mother of Blaatand, and when I went back through her ancestry (via Aethelred), I found some interesting things.
It turns out, from using the current analysis of historians with what records exist, Aethelred's line goes back very close to the very ancestry of Dhuoda, the mother of Bernard Plantevelue. That is, the line goes back to Hadrian of Orleans, husband of Waldrada, sister of Dhuoda's mother. Here's how. Aethelred's father (Ethelwulf) had for a mother, Redburga (born 770-80), whom in the records was said to be a sister of the/a French king. The record was written during Charlemagne's reign, but as he didn't have a sister by that name, some have considered Redburga his sister-in-law. The trick is then to discover which of Charlemagne's wives she was the sister of. Apparently, most historians chose his wife, Luitgard. I use the additional clue that Blaatand should trace back to the Plante surname.
When I learned of these things, I checked Wikipedia's Luitgard article, and read: "[Luitgard] was the daughter of an Alamannian count." The Alamannian count is apparently unknown, but I do see that Hadrian's mother, Imma of Swabia was also "of Alemannia," for she had duke/count Nebi of Alemannia as a father, and meanwhile she married count Gerold I (Vintzgau) of the Alemanni. The theory, therefore, is that Redburga was of this line...which may have been a Nebelung line. That's the first point, that the line from Redburga through to Blaatand was a Nebelung line, and that this transfer from Alemmania to the Danes may explain how Rollo was also a Nebelung. Secondly, note that the Alemannian count, Nebi, reflects "Nefia," the surname of Rollo's mother/grandfather.
I don't yet have an opinion as to whether Waldrada and all her siblings were Plantes, or whether the Plante name stemmed forth only from her sister somehow. You might like to keep an eye out for a clue as I advance ideas. I know already that Waldrada was a Nebelung because her mother, Waldrat of Hornbach (died by 823), was. If the Plante name comes from Waldrat, zowie, both it and this Nebelung bloodline comes down the same pipe.
I was just about to re-introduce Ingerman before being side-tracked by the Blaatand topic, wherefore I was intrigued to find at the webpage below that Ingerman was "probably" Redburga's father. Unfortunately, the webpage doesn't explain this position...in the face of several other webpages not giving Ingerman as her father. Fortunately, another webpage (which also gives an Ingerman > Redburga line) does offer an explanation.
Blaatand was a Dane, and Ingerman has been identified (by me) as a proto-Varangian. I have reason to believe, due to the round forts built by Blaatand, that he was of Avar (i.e. = Varangi) ancestry. Moreover, while Blaatant's ancestry was in-part the Anglo-Saxon blood of Aethelred and Aethelwulf, Ingerman smacks of Angle blood (Angle god was Ing). Further evidence for Ingerman (of Hesbaye) giving birth to Redburga is the known fact that Redburga gave birth to Aethelwulf in Aachen (795), smack beside Hesbaye. Aachen was stacked with Avars. If it's correct to trace Redburga to the Alemannian line of Nebi, then Ingerman might have married into that line in producing her birth.
I suspected that Flaad was from "Blaat" before I knew that Aethelflaed was the daughter of Alfred the Great, brother of Aethelred I, grandfather of Blaatand. Plus, Stewarts claim to descend from Anglo-Saxons. Veres are supporters of Stewart rule, showing that Stewarts were probably of the Vere fold, and of course Veres and Varangians are one in my picture. Early Stewarts (10th century) from Flaad used "Walter" for their names, what I suspect was in honour of the Scandinavian god, Balder, which may explain why Aethelwulf (Redburga's son) named his son, Aethelbald. It would appear that the Balder-worshiping cult in this family traces back to the parent(s) of Waldrada, what appears to be a feminine form of "Walter."
I found this German Walter Coat, including three gold Zionist stars. It's clearly a Hebrew surname. The Scottish Nobel Coat and Crest uses blue lions on gold, in the same position as the two gold lions on blue used in the Walter Coat. Multiple blue lions on gold were the symbol of Denmark, remember. Consider this quote: "The national Coat of Arms of Estonia, three blue lions on a golden shield, is almost identical to the Coat of Arms of Denmark, and its origin can be traced directly back to King Valdemar II and Danish rule in Estonia 1219-1346" (Wikipedia).
The lions were also the symbol of his father, Valdemar I (died 1182), who was born in the first Templar era. "Vlad(imir)" was a common Rus name, and so we find that Valdemar married Sophia of Polotsk, a Varangian princess. As the blue lion enters Denmark about that time (since it's not traced to earlier Danish kings), perhaps it was transferred to the Danes via this Varangian princess. Reminding you that Rurik founded Wieringen (Netherlands), this representing the origin of Varangians proper, see that Sophia descended from "Volodar of Minsk (Vladimir or Volodar Glebovich of the Rurikids)..." "Volodar" smacks of "Waldrada/Walter."
What has amazed me is that Wieringen is said (webpage below) to have been a colony of Fulda (Germany). I realized only then the similarity between the Balder-like terms with "Fulda"! Is it a coincidence that, during the life of Rurik, Baldwin I became the first count of Flanders? I still hold out that the Plante name was linked to Flanders.
Just two days after writing the paragraghs above and below, I found the German Vlatten/Flaten/Vlad Coat, a single large white Zionist star on blue. The only other one like this known to me is from the German Goth Coat. These are in the reverse colors of Israel's flag. Does "Vladim(ir)" use the Semite pluralizing suffix, "im"? Were Stewarts a Hebrew-Rus people? Is this ethnic mix not my definition of the dragon cult that belonged to Satan since the start of time on this side of the Flood?
In the midst of writing on this topic, I was side-tracked into doing a piece on Brody, a place in Lusatia that I regarded as key to tracing Laus peoples, especially the Leslie surname, to Lusignan, Luxembourg and Liege. In fact, I show later why I regard the Brody/Brady surname as root to the Bruce surname, and why "Brady" was carried by a Leslie-Abreu alliance via the Pratt/Bratt surname to Belgium, where it contributed to the Bruce family. The small locality of Brody in Lusatia proved to found the Brody location in western Ukraine, and as it turned out, that latter is in the Lviv oblast using a blue lion on gold today. I wanted to know if Brody of the Ukraine was founded by the Rurik dynasty of Varangians, and if its blue lion was from the Schleswig/Danish lion, a good possibility since Brody of Lusatia was in Silesia = "Schlesien" in German, but there was little written on the history of Ukrainian Brody, though there was this: "The first mention of a settlement on the site of Brody is dated 1084 (Instructions by Volodymyr Monomach)." As it turns out, the Varangians were ruling the Ukraine big time in 1084, not long after the death (1015) of Rurik's great-grandson, Vladimir the Great. This would be a good time to repeat that the Varangian Rus went on to found Moscow and the modern nation of Russia, wherefore the end-time anti-Christ (i.e. Gog) is expected from Rurik's bloodline.
Is it a coincidence that the location of Lesna, in Silesia, uses a gold zionist star on blue in its Arms of Lesna? Why do the colors and symbols of the dragon cult in the Liege region turn up in powers rooted to the Lesna region (Brody is on the Luzycha river)? Why is the nearby city of Legnica (less than 50 miles from Lesna) "Liegnitz" to the Germans? How can it be, that when I was side-tracked for a day to the Brody topic that I found strong evidence for a Stewart root in that area? By what odds is it that Lesna is both in Saxony and on the Kwisa river, a term that I say founded Gewisse, the ancient name of Wessex?
When I took another look at the Fulda geography, I couldn't believe my eyes: an excellent reason for tracing Blaatand (and Waldrada) back to Fulda. This excited me all the more because I had some days earlier found evidence, as per the Weser river at Wasserkoupe, for a proto-Washington (i.e. Wassa) presence at Fulda. As I suspect that the German Walter surname was connected with Fulda, note the Weiser Coat using gold Zionists stars (as does the Walter Coat).
Understand that (for reasons given in a previous chapter) I came to view the Wassa surname as a Saxon term that founded "Gewisse/Wessex." Again, the Wassa Coat uses a white Zionist star on red. The Scottish Bald/Baald Coat uses two red stars on white, evoking the http://www.houseofnames.com/fc.asp?sId=&s=washington">Washington Coat.
The first grand master of the Templars was Hugh de Payen, meaning "pagan." The French Payon/Pagon Coat uses three Zionist stars. Then see what comes up for the Italian Pagan Coat, a near match with the Washington Coat.
The Wierengen webpage above tells of "gifts" given by certain individuals -- whole tracts of land -- to "the monastery of St. Bonifacius in the area Wieringen," We first find a Gebi giving his mansion. Then we find this: "I, Gerwic of Friesland, transfer to St. Bonifacius of the monastery of Fulda the land that is under my jurisdiction...". The undescores are mine to indicate similarity with "Grabfeld/Crepfeld" because it's smack beside Fulda!! Note the name, Gebi, for my claim is that Jebusites were at Grabfeld as much as Jebusites were at Gareb hill.
I found three gold Zionist stars on blue in the Urban Coat, a variation of "Harvey" and therefore possibly rooted in "Grab(feld)." The Spanish Urban Coat modifies to three gold pentagram stars on blue, the same pentagrams (in the same colors) also seen in French Harve/Harvey Coat. Wonders never cease. At the last moment I decided to try the Garb Coat (German), and, voila! Two gold Zionist stars on blue! Remember Harbiye, what was anciently the city of Daphne/Daphnis, where Antioch (Syria) was later built by the Seleucid Greeks, the runners-up to the anti-Christ according to Daniel 8.
At Wikipedia's article on Fulda, we read:
"The Benedictine monastery of Fulda was founded in 744 by Saint Sturm, a disciple of Saint Boniface...a base from which missionaries accompanied Charlemagne's armies...The initial grant for the abbey was signed by Carloman, the son of Charles Martel. The support of the Mayors of the Palace and later, the early Pippinid and Carolingian rulers, was important to Boniface's success. Fulda also received support from many of the leading families of the Carolingian world...Fulda also received large and constant donations from the Etichonids, a leading family in Alsace, and the Conradines, predecessors of the Salian Holy Roman Emperors."
The Peppinid Mayors of the Palace were Paphlagonioans (in my opinion) who used black and white colors in their heraldry, smacking of the black and white Hohen shield. I've noted that the Arms of Fulda use a black cross, perhaps the root of the black Sinclair Cross. I also note that the Nevers Coat (albeit of Scotland) uses a black cross studded with five fleur-de-lys...in the position of the five crosses on the Templar flag of Jerusalem and in the roses of the Andreae Family Crest (Johan Andreae was a leading Rosicrucian). The Scottish Brugh/Burgh/Bruch Coat uses the same design, with four swans around a black saltire on white. As I'm about to bring the Billungs back to the fore, see the same positioning in the English Billings Coat. As I'm about to reveal a Nebelung alliance with Ingerman's bloodline, see the same formation in the coin of Louis the Pious (from webpage below), who married Ingerman's daughter. Louis ruled three centuries before the Templars were founded.
The English Black Coat: three red pentagrams on white, like the Washington Coat. The Scottish Black Coat, same red pentagram and a black saltire cross (soon I'll show Babenburgs of the English-Scottish border). Perhaps the Nera surname of Fulk III is Paphlagonian black. The Italian Nero Coat uses three gold Zionists stars, anyway.
The article cited above shows a painting of the baptism of Saint Boniface, with his baptismal tub having two blue bars...so that, if it had a blue Zionist star between them, it would be the modern flag of Israel. Then see the gold blocks in the Arms of Fulda, which may be copied in the modern modern flag of Jerusalem. What if modern Zionism has a heart in Fulda?
I am convinced that Templarism was strong in Fulda, explaining why Hesse is almost-always the topic when the "Jewish" Bavarian Illuminati is the topic. Look at the devil in the Weishaupt Coat (Adam Weishaupt founded the Bavarian Illuminati), and then know that the capital of Hesse is Weisbaden. Remember too, the Weis/Weiser Coat using three gold Zionist stars, and that the surname smacks of "Wassa." The Weser river begins at Fulda and at Wasserkoupe, locations that are also in Hesse. It begins to appear as though Hitler was correct, that certain "Jews" of Germany were attempting to rule the world...though I am not justifying what he did about it. I suppose one could say that the Wassas, as per Washington DC, do rule the world to this day.
In this book, I had traced the blue lion to the Stewarts before knowing that it was the symbol of the Danes, and before I had an inkling that Stewarts might be part-Danish via Blaatand. But overwhelmingly, due to a Stewart-Cohen connection that I have long held, I trace Stewarts also to the Varangian fold. I remind you that the blue lion transferred to king Rory of Bute, and that "Rory" and "Rurik" are identical terms. As Rory came forth from Ireland, it may not be a coincidence that the Irish flag is a red saltire on white, the reverse of the Scottish Nobel Coat. I have for a long time claimed, to the eye-rolling of my readers I'm sure, that Cohens were In ireland, and soon this idea won't seem so way-out any longer. Note that the symbol in the Scottish Nobel Coat was also used by the Irish Cohen Coat.
The blue lion was also that of the Bruces (before they became kings of Scotland in conjunction with royal Stewarts), and yet Bruces changed their symbol to a red saltire on gold. Their red saltire was taken from the Flemings, founders of Flanders: "Robert de Bruce very properly gave up the Louvain lion to Jocelyn de Louvain, a senior son of the family, when that prince married the heiress to the Percys; and the saltire, in the colours of Boulogne, became the mark of Bruce." I trace Bruces back to the Ebroicum-Celt fold, the same that established the red and gold colors of Normandy. As I also believe that the white rose of York came from the Bruce fold, let me re-show the large, single white rose on red that is the Dutch Nobel Coat. The French Noble Coat uses three black crosses of the three-fingered variety used by the Bouillon surname (and the Avars).
I kid you not, the next three paragraphs were written a couple of days ago, before I had ventured into the roots of Blaatand of Fulda as per the above. I had no idea when I opened the Blaatand investigation (just hours ago) that Ingerman could be his ancestry. I have left the three paragraph's unchanged, with current comments/corrections in square brackets. It just so happens that I was about to continue on the next paragraph as soon as I finished the Blaatand section, but in no way did I deliberately lead the Blaatand topic to Ingerman; it was the websites above that introduced Ingerman into the topic. As I wrote the Blaatand section and began to see the possible connection to Autun elements, Aeda (= mother of the known Billungs) came to mind as the root of "Aethel(wulf)." In fact, Aeda was then on my mind as Waldrat's sister (= Nebelungs). As that sister was Dhuoda's mother, be sure to consider the short second paragraph below, which was only a question two days ago.
The question of whether Inger the Varangian (born 800-820) fits into the Ingeltrude/Ingelger bloodline is still undetermined. It's time, therefore, to bring Ingerman (born 750ish) back into the picture, as I suspect that he was Inger's ancestry; I had come to a tentative theory that Ingerman was son-by-marriage of Makhir and Auda [edit: perhaps only Auda, but not Makhir]. As I reflected, I remembered Aeda and her daughter, Oda Billung, for I had made Aeda the daughter of Auda. As I was still wondering -- I kid you not, it wasn't any time before this moment -- I saw "Billung" in "Nebelung!! This gets even better because the name is "from Middle High German Nibelunc, from Old High German Nibulunc, Nibilung" (underscore mine). This is a much-needed key, telling that the mother of the first-known Billung (Oda, born 806) was the daughter of Nebelung II.
Note Dhuoda. Could she have been Oda Billung? Could Dhuoda's mother, name unknown, have been Aeda?
Amazingly, I found a webpage that gives this title: "Nibelung II OF HESBAYE." The page doesn't explain how this title was derived, whether from a personal opinion of a modern investigator, or from an ancient record. If from the latter, then a Nebelung link to Ingerman seems more than possible, for Ingerman was also styled "of Hesbaye." As he and Nebelung II were born roughly the same time, about 750, they may have been brothers-in-law...suggesting that Nebelung II had relations with Ingerman's daughter [needs re-consideration]. The importance here is in revealing where and how Egypt's line into Templarism and Freemasonry came into the picture, and may even be the reason for glorifying the Plantagenet line.
There we have the three paragraphs. They fit, support and add to conclusions made in the Blaatand section. Recall that Dhuoda and her sister could not be Nebelungs via the Alemanni line of Nebi > Hadrian. Yet, if "Billung" is a variation of "Nebelung," then Dhuoda was a Nebelung by this other way, if her mother was Aeda (= mother of the first-known Billung). In the first paragraph of the three above, it's concluded that Nebelung II (died 805) was Aeda's father (so that "Billung" refers to him in particular), this then making it quite possible that Nebi was Nebelung I. If Nebelung II was Aeda's father, then he was also Waldrada's father (if Aeda and Waldrata were sisters). In short, both Hadrian and his wife, Waldrata, were Nebelungs.
With Robert the Strong marrying the daughter (Wialdruth) of Hadrian and Waldrata, I conclude that a major line of Robertians formed a deep alliance with the Nebelungs. Were Robertians a Nebelung branch to begin with? Was Waldrada=Wialdruth a Rutpertian herself?
At the time that I was considering a trace of "Waldrada/Waldruth" to "Fulda" (or vice versa), I looked at the Fulda river (to the north of Fulda) and saw the city of Rotenburg. I wondered if Ingerman had named his daughter, Redbugra, after this town. Believing that Ingerman was a proto-Varangian, I stared at the possibility that Varangians originated in the Redburga environs, for I had discovered Rotenburg only as a result of finding Fulda elements moving to Wieringen (Netherlands), not to mention that Ingerman's immediate ancestry was from Worms, near Fulda. Then, while investigating Rotenburg, I found this: "Heringen is a town to the Hersfeld-Rotenburg district, in the north-eastern part of Hesse, Germany. It is located on the river Werra." Before finding this quote (placing Heringen on the Werra river), I had wondered whether the 'H' of "Heringen" might have converted to a 'W'. If so, I feel fairly certain that Heringen was proto-Wieringen.
This led me to believe that the Worms side of the Veres also had a root in Fulda. It was just a minute before finding the above quote that I clicked the Wikipedia link to Bebra, for the Bebra and Heringen links are on the same webpage (below). I was surprised to see a (white) beaver as the Arms of Bebra, for I have been seeking the beaver root of the Veres for a long time, as per the beaver symbol in the Arms of Oxford (Veres ruled Oxford for centuries).
In a previous chapter, I rooted the red ox of the Oxford Arms to the Oxonae peoples of northern Europe, mentioned only by Tacitus (correct me if I'm wrong), the same man who gave historians the list of Nerthus-worshiping peoples. I wrote: "Recall that the earldoms of Oxford (originally "Oxanforda") and Worcester united at one point, in particular during the Shakespearean era, and then know that -- if I'm not mistaken, it was Tacitus -- included, in northern Europe, a peoples called 'Oxonae.' Some websites share Ukert's claim that "the Hellusii and Oxonae are fabulous" i.e. non-real place/peoples, but...See here an online quote: "'Oxfordshire (abbreviated Oxon, from Latin Oxonia...' In light of this, why should an Oxonae peoples be unreal?"
I went searching just now to see if new light has been shed, and found the following old quote and its translation, where "Oxonae" is translated "Oxford":
"Libellus Rogerii Baconi Angli doctissimi mathematici et medici de retardis senectutis accidentibus et de sensibus conservandis. Oxonae. 1590. (A little book of the most learned mathematician and physician Roger Bacon Englishman concerning the retarding of old age and with the senses retained.) Oxford. 1590."
It just so happens that I keep a list of relevant coats of arms that might be needed at times, and, zowie, as I checked for one using a red bull just now, I found that it was used on the English Bevil/Baevil Coat, a surname that could have been a variation of "Beber" (= "beaver" in German), for it's all-too possible for "Bevil" to have been one with the German Bebel/Babel surname (!!), a mermaid-depicted surname that I see as the proto-Vere family. For new readers, I keep a theory in which the creators of the Great Seal of the United States trace back to the English Babel/Bebel surname, one that comes with 'r' variations such as "Beber."
As Hesbaye (Belgium, far from Fulda) is to the immediate west of Herstal, it's conspicuous that "[Bebra] is situated at the Fulda River between Bad Hersfeld and Rotenburg an der Fulda." Where Hesbaye elements found linkage with those in the Fulda region, might not Herstal have been linked to Hersfeld? As an historical fact, Nebelung I descended from Pepin II of Herstal, meaning that the Nebelung bloodline was in the Hesbaye realm before Ingerman's birth. The presence of Nebelungs at Hesbaye should then explain how Ingerman (of Germany) became styled, "of Hesbaye."
The problem now lies in finding how Rurik the Varangian, ruler of Wieringen (and later of Kiev), could issue forth from the Ingerman > Redburga line. This would prove that Ingerman was a proto-Varangian, and that Varangians were from noble Worms entities, and connected to Fulda elements. The importance, in case you've lost sight of it, is that it traces the Hebrew-Rus of the Rosicruian cult to these parts of Germany. Remember also that Aachen and adjacent Hesbaye has already been pegged as a location inhabited by the Avars who were taken captive by the Franks; from the Wikipedia article on Charlemagne we have another account of this situation:
"For the next two years, Charles [Martel] was occupied with the Slavs against the Saxons. Pippin and Duke Eric of Friuli continued, however, to assault the Avars' ring-shaped strongholds. The great Ring of the Avars, their capital fortress, was taken twice. The booty was sent to Charlemagne at his capital, Aachen...Soon the Avar tuduns had thrown in the towel and travelled to Aachen to subject themselves to Charlemagne as vassals and Christians. This Charlemagne accepted and sent one native chief, baptised Abraham, back to Avaria with the ancient title of khagan. Abraham kept his people in line, but in 800 the Bulgarians under Krum had swept the Avar state away."
There we see Avars and even kagans in Aachen. Wouldn't they have formed their own Avar community nearby? Hesbaye (around modern Tongeren) was within 50 miles of Aachen, wherefore the first Varangians proper may have come out from the Hesbaye-Aachen region. Should I also remind you that Nebelungs were associated in Egypt specifically with pharaoh AchenAten?
Wieringen is less than 150 miles from Hesbaye, and seeing that both Ingerman and Wieringen had roots in Fulda, it's likely for nobles of Hesbaye to marry nobles of Wieringen. The dates allow Rurik (born after 800) to be either a son/grandson of Ingerman. Relevantly, the said properties granted to Wieringen "are all dated between 800AD and 820AD and include 5 manors...Silver treasure was found in 1996 in a pasture at the hamlet of Westerklief, showing that Wieringen in the 9th century was for a short time an operating base of Vikings." The gifts were therefore given at roughly the birth of Rurik, at what was then the start of the Viking-pirate era. A Dane connection to Rurik is given by this quote: "Rorik again went to Denmark and forced King Horik II (Erik Barn) to recognize his rule over Hedeby."
The latter location was smack beside Schleswig, where the two blue lions on gold became crown symbols. Remember, the blue lion of Rory (on Scottish Bute) is perhaps related to Rurik. I've also found that blue and gold are overwhelmingly the colors of the Fulda-region Hebrews (using gold Zionist stars). Also, I have rooted "Viking" to "Vexin," where Nebelungs were ruling in this period.
It was only in the course of investigating the roots of Rurik that I came upon a quote that solidly identified the Nebelungs with Burgundy: "The German Nibelungen and the corresponding Old Norse form Niflung (Niflungr) is the name in Germanic and Norse mythology of the royal family or lineage of the Burgundians who settled at Worms." Zowie, here I found that Nebelungs settled at Worms...after concluding that Nebelungs and Ingerman's ancestry at Worms were either related by marriage or the same family. It now explains how Nebelung II was styled "of Hesbaye" (since the Hesbaye house was from Worms). One can then postulate that Aeda (mother of the Billungs) was in Hesbaye (if I'm correct to make her Nebelung's daughter).
In making an Avar-Nebelung distinction, that article continues to say: "The earliest probable surviving mention of the name is in the Latin poem Waltharius (lines 555–6) in which Walter...says...'These are not Avars, but Frankish Nivilons, inhabitants of the region.'" The poem was written in Worms, and was found also in the text of Chronicon Novaliciense. The latter term smacks of "Nobel," wherefore see again the two blue lions on gold in the Nobel Coat. While Nebelungs and Avars were not the same peoples, I suspect that their commonality was their Hebrew-ness. It is the Nebelungs that I trace to Hephaestus' Kabeiri cult (reasons later).
This doesn't tell whether the two blue lions of Schleswig were from Nebelungs, or vice versa, but it does convince me a little ways into seeing Nebelung blood in Rurik i.e. explaining why he first asked, and then demanded, to be ruler of Hedeby (beside Schleswig). "The vast wealth of the Burgundians is often referred to as the Niblung or Niflung hoard," and we can easily make out a picture of Viking pirates and their stolen treasures, remembering that Templars were also rooted in pirates. Perhaps the Nebelung treasures relate to the secret treasures of Rennes-le-Chateau. There is an unfound treasure accompanied by the clue, "blue apples." As the blue was likely a heraldric color, I would definitely link it to the blue lion, but more in particular to Nebelungs of Avallon elements (since "Avalon" of Britain is thought to be defined as "apple orchard"). However, as Avalon was "Hesperides" in Greek mythology, wherein the apples were protected by Ladon, note how that place smacks of "Hesbaye"!!
I'm not suggesting that Hesbaye was necessarily the ancient location of the Hesperides, but, more likely, the founders of Hesbaye considered themselves stems from that Atlantean kingdom. They may have believed themselves connected to ancient Hesperides due to their roots in British Avalon, which I identify as Bute (using a blue lion as symbol). I am of the suspicion that the blue lion stems from the Lydo-Hercules lion once called Nergal. I had traced the (mythical) spouse of Nergal, Laz, to Luxembourg and Liege, and the Lys river to their west. Now I find Hesbaye smack beside Leige!
Then I came across this: "Der Ring des Nibelungen (The Ring of the Nibelung) is a cycle of four epic music dramas by the German composer Richard Wagner...The plot revolves around a magic ring that grants the power to rule the world, forged by the Nibelung dwarf Alberich from gold stolen from the river Rhine. Several mythic figures struggle for possession of the Ring, including Wotan (Odin)..." One can't help but notice similarity with Tolkien's magic rings (in his Lord of the Rings and similar works), that likewise came with powers for world rule (this is clearly Illuminati talk), and of course Melusine's magic rings also come to mind. However, Wagner above finished writing in 1874 and therefore predates Tolkien (born 1892). One can suspect that Tolkien was borrowing Wagner's storyline, and that Tolkien's elves were representing the cult of Milouziana (mother of the Veres)...who is said to have been an Elfen Princess. I see the magic ring by Wagner was forged by "the Nibelung dwarf Alberich" (I had suggested that "elf" was code for some Alba entity). I'll also remind you that Melusine was known to depict Lusignan elements...which I tie to Luxembourg and Liege.
The question still is: from where did Rurik come among the Nebelung and/or Hesbaye fold? As "Rurik is the Slavic rendering of the same Germanic name as the modern Anglo-Scots Roderick," a root in Redburga and/or the Rutperts (i.e. Robertians) seems possible. The Wikipedia article on Rurik claims that he was Jutish, giving reason for his seeking a seat in Schleswig (in what was alternatively Juteland). Consider now that "...Gorm den Gamle, Old Norse: Gormr gamli) was King of Denmark in the mid-900s. He was the husband of Thyra." What do you see? Do you see a Worm??? Could Gorm's father or mother have been of Worms elements? To repeat, I have come to the conclusion, to be explained, that Thyra was the proto-Stewart carrier to her son, and Danish king, Blaatand (also the son of this Gorm). Herein we may find why both Danes and Varangians were classified as Vikings, since both may have been rooted in Worms.
Remember, modern draconian Veres are Stewart supporters, and perhaps both families lead back to Worms. In fact, I now have reason to trace Stewarts to Hesbaye Nebelungs, though as yet I haven't evidence that Gorm was a Nebelung of Worms. It could even be that Thyre was of the Hesbaye lot of Nebelungs, perhaps explaining why Gorm maried her. We read that "There are contradictory accounts of Thyra's parentage. Saxo holds she was the daughter of Æthelred, King of England, but Snorri says her father was a king or jarl of Jutland or Holstein called Harald Klak. The latter interpretation is more likely." However, at the Harald-Klak article we read: "It is chronologically not possible that Harald was the father of Thyra." That's a good point. Harald died an aging man 840-850, and Thyre gave birth to Blaatand in about 910 (he died 985-7).
Harald, the brother of Rurik of Wieringen, ruled around Antwerp and Zeeland at the southern end of the Netherlands. One can entertain that Harald was Harald Klak, for Harald Klak ruled Holstein and/or other parts of Denmark. That is, the desire of Rurik (of the Netherlands) to rule in Schleswig in the early 850s might logically have been due to his brother ruling the same area in earlier years. In fact, history finds Harald Klak seeking to regain a hold in the Schleswig region, and we could expect Harald, brother of Rurik, to seek a power base in Denmark if Rurik had been...which is why Harald was probably Harald Klak.
Harald Klak had ruled Danish regions from 812, but was chased out of Denmark in 827, and afterward stuggled in vain to restore himself there. The webpage below says: "827 Harald Klak driven out of Denmark for good, given a fief in Frisia by the Franks." Wikipedia says: "In 841, Rorik and his brother Harald had been granted several parts of Friesland."
To both show that both Haralds were the same, and to explain all the better why Rurik wanted Schleswig (back), the webpage below claims that Harald Klak ruled Schleswig in the 812 period, and his "brother Roerek was appointed as underking of Jutland" at that time. In other words, both Haralds had a Rurik brother. If this Roerek was Rurik of Wieringen, therefore, we can assume that he was about 20 years of age in 812, and therefore born about 795 (in which picture he died at about 80). The birth of Harald Klak in the 780s (some say "about 800") falls in line with the birth of Ingerman's sons. Then we read: "At Ingelheim, near Mainz, in 826, [Harald Klak], his family, his two brothers Roerek and Hemming, and numerous followers were converted to Christianity in an elaborate ceremony conducted by Emperor Louis I."
This Louis was The Pious, the one who married Ingerman's daughter. Louis was not merely a figurehead at this ceremony; he was greatly devoted to Harald's Danish kingdom, for "in 814, Harald was forced to seek the protection of Emperor Louis, who sent an army to help him against the sons of Gudfred." Again, if Harald and Rurik were sons of Ingerman, and therefore brother's of Louis' wife, it would give Louis cause to send an army to their rescue. (Louis did not marry his second wife until 819.)
In 850, Rurik attacked (Utrecht) to the south of his base in Wieringen, with Godfrey Haraldsson. Wikipedia suggests that Godfrey was the son of Harald Klak, but that the latter was the uncle of Rurik and his brother, Harald. It seems that Harald was dead in 850, since he is not a part of the invasion, and this matches the time of death of Harald Klak, said to be in the 840s (though some say in the early 850s). The worldconnect article above equates Harald Klak with Harald, brother of Rurik: "[Haralf Klak] succeeded in extending his domain as far south as the present isle of Walcheren, where Hemming was killed in its defence in 837." Compare with Wikipedia on the "other" Harald: "...the seat of Rorik being the island of Wieringen, while Harald operated from the island of Walcheren."
Why was Harald baptised in Ingelhiem, a city near Worms (and across the Rhine river from Weisbaden, capital of Hesse), the very territory in which Ingerman and the Nebelungs revolved? Ingerman may have been named after Ingelheim elements. To the immediate south-west of Ingelheim sits Hunsruck, what I suggest was an Avar land, matching what I suspect about Hesbaye, that it was a land inhabited by Avar captives. The coastline ruled by the Rurik-Harald Varangians was in those days Friesland, and yet in that period, "East Anglian sources called the inhabitants of 'Frisia' Warnii instead of Frisians." This term, especially as it was use by Angles, certainly smacks of the Varni, who in turn smack of Varangians.
I can now begin to sink some teeth into the theory that Danes of the Viking period and Varangians were the same stock. Ingerman's line through Redburga goes to the Danes through the kings of Wessex like so: Ingerman > Redburga > Aethelwulf (of Wessex) > Aethelred > Thyre > Blaatand. This does in fact make Thyra a descendant of Ingerman, but only if he was indeed Redburga's father. The fact that Blaatand had Harald as a first name certainly seems conspicuous for his connection to the Rurik-and-Harald brothers (some even say that Harald Klak, instead of Gorm, was Blaatand's father).
The fact that Ingerman's line comes this close to known Varangians proper causes me to solidify the theory that he was the father or grandfather of Inger the known Varangian proper. If true, then Inger was likely a Nebelung. Assuming that proto-Stewarts went back to Ingerman, and that Inger's wife, Melissena, was a major part of the Anjou Veres, who were therefore also Cohens, it may thereby explain why the royal-Stewart bloodline (of Scotland) use Cohen checks to this day (see Scottish Stewart Coat).
Now that Aeda has been identified with Nebelungs of Hesbaye and Worms (as per identifying her father as Nebelung II of Hesbaye), the postulated Aeda > Dhuoda line (which gave birth to Bernard Plantevelue) is a candidate for having relations with Gorm's line (because I'm assuming that he was from Worms elements). I would therefore postulate that a woman in the family of Bernard Plantevelue (born 841) gave birth to Gorm. If it seems strange to have Gorm's birth from Franks, remember that Bernard Plantevelue was previously traced to Harcourt Danes of Torville, while Gorm was himself a Dane. I'm not an historian, and so I didn't even know who Gorm's father was when I wrote this paragraph. I naturally went to check for possible Gorm connections to Harcourts, and it turned out that Gorm's father was Harthecnut (oldest version, "Hardegon"). Coincidence?
I then followed the link to the Harthecnut article, and found evidence that his son (Gorm) was in fact, "Worm": "Hardecnudth Vurm, a double name not uncommon in that era, later changed to Hardecnudths son, Vurm but also changed to Athelstan Vurm." That is, Harthecnut's name changed to "Aethel"...very close to "Aeda." Assuming that Aeda was his mother, one can further postulate that he was from Autun Merovingians, not only because "Aeda" is a term I'm tracing to the Aedui of Autun, but because Bernard Plantevelue was the son of Bernard, son of William of Gellone, son of the Merovingian ruler of Autun, Makhir. Keep in mind that this Makhir was a carrier of important Merovingian blood (of the Rotrude line), while mainline Merovingians are herein being identified as Nebelungs.
Aethelred of Mercia (not the same as the Aethelred of Wessex (died 872) thus far under discussion) married Aethelflaed. Aside from asking whether these terms stemmed from Autun Merovingians who married into the Wessex Saxons, may we ask where did the "Flaed" term came from? It surely looks like the term that named Blaatand, grandson of Aethelred of Wessex (on his mother's side), but even if not, Alan the father of Flaad (i.e. the first-known proto-Stewarts) can be linked on a tentative basis to Aethelflaed (she was daughter of Alfred the Great). In this picture, Stewarts emerged from Wessex Saxons as well as Worms, but also from the Ethel terms. As it's known that Stewarts were Merovingians, might the Aethel term have been their Merovingian background?
The birth of Alan fitz Flaad was shortly after 1000, just a century after Aethelflaed's death, wherefore the Flaed term could certainly have carried over that span to Flaad. The importance of Redburga, in seeking the root of the Flaed term, is that Alfred the Great's father was Aethelwulf, son of Redberga. It therefore becomes difficult to overlook other Flaed terms that occurred in the thick of Redburga's ancestry.
The Aethelred tree (webpage below) shows a few earlier (7th-century) Mercian brothers, among them another Aethelred (died 704). With his birth, we are back in time as far as the Arthurian period, and I seek Merovingians in Britain, in that period, who were related to Arthur's Brits. Again, could the Aethel term, especially in Aethelred of Mercia, have been Autun's Merovingian blood in Britain?
Another Mercian brother (Peada) is shown married to Ealhflaed of Northumbria, making this line suspect as the proto-Stewart line, especially if it can be shown that EalhFlaed leads to the Redberga > Aethelwulf > Alfred > AethelFlaed line. I didn't know when I wrote this paragraph that Northumbria and and Mercia would together constitute a Babenburg-Nebelung stronghold going back to the beginnings of the Arthurian cult. Be patient and wait for the details.
The tree shows one Mercian king as Coenred, serving as evidence for a Red-Cohen understanding of "Conrad." The same tree shows three names using "Cyne," all directly related to the Mercian brothers named above. Keeping in mind the Zionist star of Ulster, "Cyne" smacks of king Kyan of Ulster (Ireland), an 11th century character that I hold out as a possible Irish Cohen, who fled to Scottland where he found refuge with Malcolm II.
In the ">Wessex Tree (website below), we see five Cuth(a) personalities surrounding Coenred, and multiple Wulf names that may parallel the dog symbols of the Irish Conns and/or Anglo-Saxon Stewarts. The Aethel terms, though thick and heavy after Aethelwulf's time, are sparse before his time, only two shown, both of which married daughters of Coenred (born 640). I would obviously wish to know who these Coens were, or how they were named. Thus far I have Cohens of Europe issuing forth from Melissena or her Khazar ancestors, but at a time later than the Mercian Coens under discussion. Am I now to amend my belief, that Cohens issued forth from Coens? If so, how does melissena fit into that picture, since she was born after 800, significantly after the Coens under discussion? My theory has been that Veres of Anjou were from a mix of Scottish Veres with the more-important Cohens of Melissena...so that modern draconian Veres could encode the mix as "Milouziana/Melusine." Might, therefore, the Scottish Veres have been from the Mercian Coens?
One clue that draconian Veres couldn't resist giving us is that Milouziana is the Elvin Princess. Consider Alfred the Great...who named his daughter AethelFlaed. Or, consider Aelfwynn, "the daughter of Aethelred, ruler of English Mercia, and Aethelflaed"!! I used to think that "Alfred" should be understood as Al-Fred, until now that I see Red terms...so that it should be understood as Alf-Red.
So what do we have here? Alfred (born 847) gives birth to AethelFlaed so that he through to her daughter, Aelfwynn, should be the elf line, and moreover it should be the elf line leading to the Flaad Stewarts. Yes, the elf line is code for the Stewarts. The first Stewarts became Stewards of the Scottish throne just after a Scot king married the Aetheling, queen Margaret...of Holy Ro(o)d. She, on the side of her father (Edgar the Aetheling), went back through an unboken line of male kings to Aethelwulf (= father of Alfred the Great); these kings included Edward the Aetheling, Eadmund II, and Ethelred II. See the Aethelred tree again to see a pre-occupation with Odo/Oda/Aeda-like terms.
I have been taking the position that Milouziana de Vere is code because there is no record of such a woman in Britain. As she is expected to be of the elf line, I'd suggest that Melissena's Khazar side married into the Alfred line. I can't imagine Melissena, of Byzantium, marrying the British Saxons in any other way apart from her marriage to Inger. Although he was a Varangian, I postulate that his ancestor was Ingerman, and when Redburga is accepted as Ingerman's daughter, voila: Redburga was Alfred's grandmother! In fact, the dates are such that Redburga may have been the (unknown) mother of Inger. In this picture, Ingerman and Veres of Worms are essentially the elf line, and Melissena married that line when she married Inger.
I apologize as I haven't been able to add to this as promised. I don't know when I can. I am busy with other matters at this time. For scattered continuations beyond the writing of this work, see Iraq Updates.
