Mentz/Metz is south of Mosul on this Rhine map, due west of Mainz. The river Main runs into Mainz, and Mannheim is just upstream on the Rhine. For this reason I suspect that the Rhine was home to the Cottians (previously in the Alps), descendants of Cotys, son of Manes. That is, the Cotti were Getae and thus of Goth blood, wherefore they are contenders for Merovingian roots.
I equate the Cotti with the Chatti/Catti who did in fact live on the Rhine, and whom by others are said to be closely related to the Franks. The Chatti were ancestors of the Batavians, whom I suspect are the ancestors of the Bute clan, to which the Stewarts are closely associated to this day. The Batavians are said to be direct ancestors of the Dutch, but the Dutch were a Frank peoples. It's interesting that the Issel river (which is said to name the Salian Franks) is in Dutch territory. It is said that the Salians in particular formed the Dutch: "The Salian Franks formed, with the Nether-Saxons and the Frisians, the foundation for early Dutch culture and society"
The well-known fact that the Salians lived on the sea shore is good reason to entertain "Merovee" as meaning Sea Boi, or even Sea-Ubii since Franks were related to the Ubii peoples on the Rhine river. Homer wrote that the "Mysi" i.e. Mysians became the "Abii," whom (Homer said) were Sarmations (and therefore Alans).
[Update July 2006 -- Mysians were proto-Lydians, meaning that Mysians, and therefore the Abii, were of the Pelops golden-fleece line and/or the Leda-Lydian swan line. The Abii may have been the mythical Abas/Abae (of Phocis) that I entertain as the Avvites in Greece. The city of Abae was in Phocis, and so read this (End Update)]:
"It is said that the Turkish city of Eregli (ancient Bebryces) was founded by Megarians. Cassius Dio, in his Roman history's Book XIII, tells of a sea of Bebryces, which he said was also called the "sea of Narbonenses."
"The founding city of Narbonenses, Massalia (modern day Marseilles), was settled by the Phocaeans around 600 BC."
What's that? Bebryces was a Megarian entity? Interesting, since both Megarians and Phocaeans were Corinthian descendants, who were themselves the Ares dragon...the white dragon.
Massalia was at the mouth of the Rhone (ancient Rhodanus) on the Mediterranean, wherefore that was the sea of Bebryces. That is, the Bebryces Greeks must have become the Narbonenses Gauls. So recall from the previous chapter my Bebryces connection to Bibracte, where the latter was located around its (French) capital city, Auten/Autun; recall also my connection of Auten to the mythical Aedon of the Butes bloodline (of Cecrops), and keep in mind that I hope to connect these "b*b*r" terms to the green beaver symbol on the Vere/Oxford Coat of Arms, which I think included the Bauer (i.e. Rothschild) surname. Autun is just south of Avallon, just west of Beaune, and just north of Macon. You can see the Aedui on the Gaul map, beside the Mandubii (Mand-Ubii?).
(See map of Narbonenses).
[Update July 2006 -- I just realized while re-reading/editing this paragraph above that Aut(en)" is likely the same as "Avith" and "Avidia," two historical versions of the Biblical "Avviy." And as I have already connected the Avviy to Avalon in Britain, surely this French Avallon is the sister-region of the British one.]
The question is to what extent the Phocaeans mixed with the Redones (the red dragon) before founding the city of Narbonne (named after Narbonenses) more than 100 miles westward in Languedoc-Roussillon? That latter term was "Rosellon" to the Spanish. The Ruthene did in fact live in Languedoc-Roussillon, at Rodez, in the province of Aveyron.
[Update July 2006 -- Do you see an "Avviy" (Biblical spelling of "Avvite") in Aveyron? And see the city of Severat le Chateau just to the east of Rodez, evoking the Kabala "sephirot" and the Sepharvites.
Recall that I had connected the Avvites closely to the seven-headed Lotan dragon of Syria (which per chance might furnish the False Prophet and Biblical-dragon empire). Remember we're dealing with frogs here, the symbols of all three Revelation beasts. Recall that I had traced the Greek Ladon dragon (probably the same as the (white) Lotan dragon) to Lothian, where Roslin was located. This would suggest that the Ruthene named Roslin as they had named Rosellon, explaining why the Sinclairs, a Rus-Viking peoples, came to settle Roslin. And as Edinburgh is just six miles from Roslin, recall the Celt goddess was "Aedon," just like the Aedon of Greek myth, and that these terms likely depicted the Edones who named Edinburgh. As this Lothian region gave rise to the mythical Lot (who the mythologers then (deceptively) say founded Lothian), see that Severot de Chateau is on the Lot river!! This now connects Lotan/Ladon to the Sepharvites, and to the Bohemian Grove (California) which continues to honor, to this day, the Sepharvite god, Molech. End Update]
Narbonne was named after Narbo Martius, and I have been looking for just such a name for to discover the real roots for the Martinist Rosicrucians (I don't much trust explanations from Rosicrucians themselves), said to originate in southern France. Narbonne became the capital of Septimania, and Septimania (same as Languedoc) is where the Jesus-Magdalene heresy flourished, and where the first Templars gathered.
[It is said that Septimania was not a Merovingian-proper nation, but rather belonged to certain Goths, but as "Sept" has the makings of "sephirot," I would entertain a Goth-Merovingian mix to define Septimania.
It is my opinion that the Edones were Getae who became the historical "Eotens" (i.e Jutes), and were therefore Goths. Yes, I'm suggesting that the mythical Aedon depicted the Goths of Septimania. I think that these Goths took the continental route by way of Venetia/Etruscans (i.e. they were not the sea-faring Phocaeans), as per my previous explanation that the mythical Aedon gave birth to Itylus = Italy, and to the Veneti more specifically in that she was a daughter of Pandion.]
In keeping with my theory that the Getae were the Satyr goats (Satyr Thracians living amongst the Edones on the Strymon river), Templars worshiped Baphomet, a goat god. It's interesting that the kings of Kent (from "Centaur"?) were Jutes, and that Godfrey de Bouillon came forth from kings of Kent intermarried with the Anglo-Saxon kings. I'm suggesting that Godfrey was surrounded by Jute Templars from the mythical Aedon, and that Merovee had been named after her husband, Merops (Mer-Opis = sea bee), who was also king Tereus of Thrace.
See on this zoom-able Roussillon map that Narbonne was just next to Beziers, and do note how that term evokes "Byzas/Bias." You can see Rodez to the north, and Marseilles to the east; Rennes-le-Chateau (i.e. ancient Aereda), not shown, was just to the west of Narbonne, and south of Carcassonne. This suggests strongly that some Redones of the Rhodanus moved with the Bebryces Greeks to the Narbonne sea shore. I would also suggest that the Narbonne (Nar-Bonne?) Bebryces founded Bonn, and that "Bonn" is a Boi term, as when the Bia peoples named Van (Armenia).
Narbonne was "situated where the Via Domitia connected to the Via Aquitania, which lead toward the Atlantic..." To this I would add that the Boii city of Boiatium was in Aquitaine...on the Atlantic. But the Bebryces (Boi-Bryges?) Greeks must have moved north as well, into central France, to become the Bibracte empire; we find that Boii peoples (e.g. of Gorgobina) did live amongst the Bibracte. The Gorgobina may have been Gauls of Gergovia.
The Merovingian king, Dagobert II, married Giselle of Razes (7th century AD), and this latter term was the region surrounding Rhedae(-le-Chateau). Dagobert's son, Sigisbert IV, then became Duke of Razes and Count of the Rhedae. And there you have Merovingian involvement with the Rose Line. The Rod cult that these peoples worshiped included a female personality called "Roza," evoking Razes.
Terms like "Rosellon" should perhaps be understood as Rotellon, as in "rotelli" = "wheel." This would explain why Rosicrucian crosses are sometimes encircled, as in a Celtic cross, so that it appears as a wheel with four spokes (see here such a chariot wheel). It may be that "Roslin" and "Rothesay" are "roto" words linking back to the Rodez/Ruteni Gauls. Rothesay was the first name of the Island of Bute (Scotland), and it may just be that the island was an old Redone hang-out long before the Stewarts proper came to Scotland. The Stewarts, having been Merovingians and therefore having Redone blood, seized the island as their own as soon as there was a Stewart on the throne of Scotland. (see Gaul map).
I now wish to entertain a connection of the peoples under discussion to Cornwall/Wales. First let me say that, in support of my hunch that "Boii" was at one time "Bogi" (because I expect that "bij" (= "bee") derived from something like "Bogi"), the Russians call the Boii nation of Bohemia, "Bogemiya." Plus, modern Lamothe (in Aquitaine) was an old Boii city that the Romans named "Boiatium," and yet the modern form, "Biganos," shows the "g" form that I suspected of Boii terms.
It is said that the Belgae of Europe stemmed (in the second and first century BC) to become the Belgae of south Wales. I would add that the Fir Bolgs had been in Wales long before, for they were Geryon's Gorgons, and as they were in Erethlyn, Wales (i.e. like "Aereda"), I would moreover add that the Fir Bolgs were, at least in part, Redones. I tend to think that the "l" in "Bolg" derived from "Bologne/Boulogne," since it's known that Bologne (Italy) was founded by the Boii.
Now Geryon's people were depicted in the myth as cattle, and this in turn referred to Taurus, which, in light of Geryon being depicted as a monster, probably carried the idea of "giant (people)," for "bull" comes from the idea of "bulk," says my dictionary, even as a "bull market" refers to increasing prices. "Torus" is Latin for "swelling."
Note the similarity between "bullock" (Old English "bulluc") and "Bulgar/Bolg." Could Bologne, though not named after a bull, have been depicted by the bull as a play-on-words? Or is it possible that "Boii" became "Boille" (pronounced "buiy") in France, as in Godfrey de Bouillon?
"Torso" and "Taurus" are linguistically related, carrying the idea of bulk. But "torso" comes from the Greek, "thyrsos," meaning "stalk/trunk," and for that reason the so-called "thyrsos" of Dionysus was a symbol of a stalk/trunk i.e. ancestors (it depicted Attis of the Manes bloodline). Thus "Thrace" must have meant "bloodline-stalk," and for that reason "Draco" (from "Thrace/Thraco) meant the same thing. Perhaps the "Angus" breed of cattle may find origin in a term that brought about "Anglo." Note that a bull is a symbol of anger/fury.
I've read that the Angles were named after "angle." It's interesting that the French and Latin "angulus" (corner/angle) is similar to the French and Latin "avunculus," meaning "mother's brother" i.e. uncle; the term should be read as "av-unculus," which strikes me as being quite the same as "angulus." Now "culo" in Italian means "butt," and that brings the idea of "bull" back since the round bulk of a bull by which it's named is it's (large) butt. This is not to say that an uncle is a large butt, at least not my uncle, but that "unculus" appears to mean "from the loins of" i.e. "from the stalk/womb of." And so "uncle" is very much like "Angle" perhaps because the Angles were named after the idea of relatives; I would imagine that they were named by their tribal cousins.
Now the term "angulus" (angle/corner) would apply because the loin area is where our bodies bend. My dictionary defines a loin as "between the lower ribs and the hipbone," which happens to be the location of the unborn child/bloodline. In Latin "loin" is "lumbus," which sounds like "lumber" = "trunk/stalk." Indeed, our English word, "lumbar" (from "lumbus") means "pertaining to the loins."
This exercise was part of a period of several hours with my face in the dictionary trying to find a connection between "Bolg" and "Bologne," so that I was paralyzed to find that the Old-French words for "loin" were "loigne" and "logne," for they may just be the intent in "Bologne." Could we therefore read the word as Boi-Stalk?
As "loin" was from "lumbus," I was struck by yet another finding, that the dictionary's definition of "lumber" included: "Var[iation] of Lombardi in obs. [obsolete] sense of 'money-lender, pawnshop,' hence stored articles." This seemed amazing because I was tracking the Lombards at the time in an effort to connect them solidly to the Vandals (and the Vandals to the Merovingians), while at the same time suspecting that Bologne, Italy, was connected to Boulogne, France, the latter being the count-dom of Godfrey de Bouillon's father.
[Update August 2006 -- Consider this quote: "The swan was then [11th century AD], as it is still, the central heraldic mark of the arms of Boulogne. For the swan legend (in spite of Lohengrin) seems to have originated at the castle of Bouillon, which was the inheritance of Eustace II’s second son, Godfrey of Bouillon."

Gold "bullion" is from the French "bouillir" = "to boil," which is somewhat understandable since gold is melted to make bullion blocks. I may now understand what I couldn't at first, why "Bouillon" (the city) derived from the very same French word (above) that means "to boil." But surely "Bouillon" does not mean Hot/Bubbly Land. Wouldn't "bull" be a better root for both gold bullion and Bouillon, especially as bull is a money-term used in the stock market?
But I am torn over the possibilities. On the one hand "Bouillon" could mean "bee" (French "abeille"); on another hand "bull"; on another "gold bars"; on another Boi Land. It is said that the tomb of a primordial Merovingian king, the son of Merovee, contained a golden bull's head and gold bees. Were the Rosicrucians so silly that they would honor animal pictures? Was this a child's game? Are there not better things to honor than animals representing grandfathers? It is true what God has said, that He will make the wise of this world fools?
With the French word for bee, the Ubii peoples come to mind, and I do know that Mysia, where lived the Abii, was a land in particular having gold. It would be even worse if men should worship gold, for what is the fate of one who gives his soul to it when the gold is no longer there? I think of multi-millionaires going broke jumping off of high-rise towers, thinking they have nothing to live for anymore after giving themselves over to the sins that only ample money can buy.
I think I am beginning to understand that the bee and the bull were together objects of Frank worship because both, merely as play-on-words, came to depict Bolougne and/or Bouillon. Note that "apis" meant "bull" to Egyptian and Greek myth writers, and yet in Latin "apis" (Italian "ape") means "bee." In Dutch, a bee is a "bij" while in Polish a bee is a "bak"; both "Morbijan" and "Morbikan" are valid variations of the historical Morbihan peoples (see location of Morbihan). And so it seems feasible that the Merovingians were from the Morbihan Veneti who founded Vannes, Brittany.
"Bue" in Italian and "boi" in Portuguese are not a bee, but an ox. And while a Polish bee is a "bak," a Polish bull is a "byk," but also a "wolek" evoking "bullock" (and Bolg). "Bison" ("bos" in French and Greek) may have derived from the Bessi Thracians and/or the Bias/Byzas Megarians and/or the Buzi/Bosae Medes.
There is a word in my English dictionary that is exactly like the city, "Bouillon." It means soup, and like the gold bars, it too is said to derive from the French "bouil" = "boil." Everyone is familiar with beef bouillon, and even as "bouillon" looks rooted in "bull," see how it modifies to "bovillon," knowing also that "bovi/bovine" (the root of "beef") refers to cow things.
The question then is, does the word "boil" itself derive from the Boii? That is, were the Boii the inventors of metal, as even the Telchines are said to be, as even the proto-Trojans are said to be, as even the Minyae (i.e. Boiotians) are thought to be? The Minyae were named after their unique gray pottery, called "Minyan," meaning that they were experts in the use of the kiln. The inventors of metal were said to be from Euboia (next to Boiotia), who then moved to Chalcidice (in the neighborhood of the Paeoni), but the Megarians (i.e. the Buzas) that founded Byzantium are likewise said to have moved to Chalcidice. Wouldn't that explain why these peoples were rich, why there was a Minyan Treasury, and why gold blocks are called after the word, "boil"? Assuming that the Boii were in fact something like "Boil," such Greek pertinent terms as Pelops (Pel-Opis), Pelasgians (Pel-Asgi), and Bel/Baal come to mind.
See also how "buffalo" (a cow family) comes from the Greek "boubalos" (French "bubale") which can easily modify to "Bouvalos" (i.e. very similar to "Bouillon/Bovillon"). The "bubale/boubalos" may per chance be related to "Bebryces" and "Bibracte." In any case, read this about the Duchy of Bouillon: "Built as a fortress in the early 11th c., it was ceded by the famous crusader Godefroy de Bouillon to the bishops of Liége, who owned it until 1678. From 1678 to 1795, it was an independent and sovereign territory under the La Tour family..."
Liege may have something to do with Liguria, but the point is how "Tour" evokes the Taurus. Tourney, it should be added, was the seat of Salian Franks.
It may very well be that "Taurus" and "bull" has meant "wealth" for a long time, for my dictionary tells that "cattle" derives from the Latin "capitale" meaning "capital/wealth." Note that gold in certain languages is "dor/dora," an apparent variation of "tora/taurus." Consider now that Babylon in Revelation is likened to a money-making machine, and that "boubalos" (= "buffalo") is very close indeed to "Babylon."
[I'll bet you my golden bull-horn towel hooks that the Chaldean Illuminati -- the Kabala -- named "Babylon." "Kabala" is "caballa" = horse, after all, a term very much like "boubalos" = buffalo.
After Greenway7 tipped me off about certain oxen called "aurochs" that may be connected to the Araxes river (where I think Ares/Hros/Gog originates), I did a quick search, and found that the species was honored by various pagan peoples. In the quote below (italics mine), I got the impression immediately that the ancient Taurus cult -- still with us today and desiring to be honored by the world -- had various cow-names for various Taurus branches:
"The aurochs (Bos primigenius) is an extinct European mammal of the Bovidae family...alternative plural forms are aurochsen or urus. The animal's original scientific name, Bos primigenius, translated the German term Auerochse or Urochs, literally "primeval ox", or "proto-ox"...Taxonomists who consider domesticated cattle a subspecies of the wild Aurochs should use B. primigenius taurus."
Doesn't "urus" and "urochs" depict the Aras/Araxes valley, and might the author of this article have known it? Why is this species considered the "prima" and "proto" Taurus? Is this Rosicrucian code for the Hros peoples of that valley? Are the migratory paths of this species, as outlined in the article, the migratory paths of the Hros? The article mentions a "Javan cattle," that they do not descend from the aurochs. Hmm, I'm suspicious. Then, we read: "At one time there existed three aurochs subspecies," one in India, one in north Africa, and one in Indo-Europe. This so much sounds like the Aryans, does it not? And might the number three found so often in pagan symbolism depict just those three major branches of Aryans?
If that's not enough, the article claims that "Domestication of the aurochs began in the southern Caucasus and northern Mesopotamia," exactly where Aras/Araxes is located on the one hand, and exactly the bed of the Kabala dragon cult on the other hand. As "urus" looks so much like "Taurus," might the two terms have been synonymous, and might "urus" have been Uruk, since the earliest bull cult (of Sin) was in that city? If true, it connects Archevites to the Taurus cult, and may serve to reveal both Io and Zeus roots in Uruk, not a major surprise, anyway. End Update]
"Business" looks rooted in "bison." My dictionary says "business" is from the Old English "bysignis," and that "bysig" means our modern "busy." But perhaps business stems from the ox, the sale of cattle for easy money. See how "bysig," or "Byzas," evokes VISA, a modern symbol of big-business. Might the Image of the Beast include a bison or other form of bull, perhaps bull horns? As the Global Beast has been called by God, "Babylon the Great," remember that this Great-Mother stupidity was depicted by pagans as a bull. I don't "stupid" is a strong-enough term to do justice.
After Zeus turned Io into a white cow, Poseidon mated with her to produce the Egyptian king, "Epaphos." I'm suggesting that some "p*p" terms, like some "b*b" terms, meant "bull." We have all heard the phrase, "bull's eye," and so note that the center of the eye is called a "pupil." Then know that, as a mythical story with a meaning that no one seems to understand, the last Merovingian king was killed when Pepin speared him, right in his eye! The meaning seems to be two-fold, perhaps threefold: 1) that Merovingians were viewed as bulls, 2) that Pepin meant "pupil" (Pepin was a Merovingian); and, 3) that Merovingians were symbolized by spears, even as the Veres are said to be depicted by a shaking spear.
The Merovingians originated from a "quinotaur," a sea bull, according to Merovingian myth. "Merovech" translates to Sea Bull, apparently, since "vech" modifies to "bech," while those terms mean "bull" in certain languages e.g. Polish "byk" or Italian "vacca." These two languages are important, for the Franks descended, I think, from a mix of Poles and Italians. Note that our "buck" is defined as the male of animals, so that "Merovech" would mean Sea Bull rather than Sea Cow. And speaking of bucks, isn't that a money term too? The bull is a symbol of sin, the very sin that Jesus can to save us from, the lust of the eyes.
Because Oxford (England) is not on the ocean, it's strange, but now not incomprehensible, that there is a red ox standing on water in the Oxford arms. They say that the cow is on the Thames river, but I don't buy that because Oxford was ruled by Vere Merovingians for several centuries. A red rose is held by a lion/panther above the red ox; the cat is supposed to be dotted with Fleur de Lis. The green beaver with a lion's body may reveal something of the true nature of the Vere dragon. Both the beaver and the elephant have chains dangling from their necks, very odd indeed, but apt for an Illuminati peoples who pride themselves in the god of Control.
Now a pupil is also a student, but "pupil" derives from "pupus" = "boy." Can it be a coincidence that "boy" derives from Middle English "boi"? It may be that the meaning behind a boy is one in fetters to his father, for "boia" in Latin means "fetter/chain." Might "boia" have been the chain that tied a cow to its post, and might bull terms have derived from father terms, as for example "baba/papa"? Even the Hebrew "abba" seems near to "apis" (bee or bull). The Dutch grandfather is an "opa," like "opis" = bee. And "Butes" (referring to a bull) is similar to "pater" the derivation of "father." I'm suggesting that Gorgons worshiped bulls in worshiping their fathers, even as some east Indians worship cows to this day as their ancestors. This is Satanic Aryanism, and it leads to stupidity. I'm calling all readers to not worship the Roman beast and what the Bible calls the "Image of the Beast" that will soon be revealed as a Globalist symbol. Or else become a fool, it's up to you; if you don't care for your reputation or your life, why should I? Certainly God is going to let you choose, and He warns that anyone who worships the Image of the Beast will be forever lost from eternal life.
I'm also suggesting that the bee was a symbol for lordship/fatherhood/household/etc. The king bee, that is.
Remembering that Tydeus was of the Appian-Way bee line (of the Italian Opis cult), and was the Calydonian fighter with a boar symbol upon his shield, see that his mother was Periboea, a boar-bee combination. In the myth, he meets up and fights with Oedipus [Oed-Opis?], he having a shield with a lion symbol. Moreover, Oedipus just happens to be the step-son of Periboea, for she was married to his father, Polybus (read as either Poly-Bus). Now it just so happens that the Latin and Greek "bus" means "ox," as for example "Bosphorus means 'ford of the ox'".
Hmm, might Oxford (originally "Oxanforda") stem from the Bosphorus, where Byzantium was built? It is said in myth that the Bosphorus (technically "Bosporos") strait was named by Io when she as a white cow crossed it, suggesting that Io Argives had to do with founding proto-Byzantium on the Bosphorus. In Egypt, she became the red cow, known also as Hapi. But in Egypt, Isis was made the mother of this bull god, meaning that Isis was Io, which duo with wide agreement are also interpreted as Ishtar. Note that Byzantium became Istanbul, which seems to be Ishtar-Bull.
It can't be a coincidence that in Oxford, the Thames river is called the Isis. Nor can it be a coincidence that Oxford is one member of the ISIS group of schools. Moreover, when in the 1800s the Anglican Church attempted to rule Jerusalem (in conjunction with the Illuminati, in my opinion), it was Christ Church, at Oxford, that lead the way. More on this Jerusalem Bishopric in forthcoming chapters.
Boulogne, France, was on the coast facing England (see map); it was in ancient Belgica. As Liguria was closely associated with Bologne, Italy, so Belgica was adjacent to Lugdunensis. I learned that this region was named by the Romans after the god, Lug, suggesting that Romans, when they arrived and conquered, found the peoples there to be descended from Lug. The Lugii Gauls are pegged, but is it possible that the French "logne" (our "loin") was the meaning behind the god, Lug? Is it a coincidence that "Lug" looks like "log" (Middle English "logge") and that a loin/torso is a log/trunk/stalk? Therefore, if "Bologne" should be understood as Boi-Log, doesn't the "Fir" in "Fir Bolg" translate to "fir/pine" all the more?
Yet, recall that I had tied "wolf" to "fir" because wolves and pines go together, and to support this I shared that there are two kinds of barks, the skin of trees and the bark of a dog, remembering that "verk" = wolf. The same word for pine/fur was also the word for wolf, I figure, realizing too that "fierce" was rooted in "fir" so as to equate with the wolf. "Bologne" may thus be viewed either as Boi-Clan or Boi-Wolf; and "Fir Bolg" may thus be understood as Wolf Clan Of Boi.
Le Mans was in Lugdunensis, albeit the province covered much of proto-France; from the ocean shore facing England, it reached inland as far as the modern city of Lyons in the Rhone-river region. In fact, Lyons was at that time called "Lugdumim," and it was the capital of the Gauls. The Lugii lived in that region. Assuming that Lug was also Liguria, Lug was then the swan line depicted by Cygnus, king of Liguria (that would make Lug a Gogi peoples). Now behold a related swan:
Milo I de Vere was Count of Anjou, (hence eldest son of Melusine/Milouziana de Scythes/Maelasanu: The Elven, Dragon Princess, niece of the Swan Princess Morgan La Fey de Avallon del Acqs)" (brackets not mine, italics mine).
Page 450 'The Royal Genealogies' Dr. James Anderson, D.D., M.A
If the Veres were thus of Lug, and if both "Lug" and "Vere" mean "wolf," why couldn't we view "Fir Bolg" as Vere Bolg, especially as it can be shown by other means that the Vere-Picts (to which Milouziana belonged) were Fir Bolgs?
The Belgae of Wales had for its capital Venta Belgarum, a term that evokes the Veneti and/or the Vandals. This capital might have been the root of the Gwynedd kingdom, for that kingdom was formed by the "Venedotia" peoples, who must have been connected to the Veneti of Armorica/Brittany. Julius Caesar said that Armorica included the tribes of Redones, Veneti, and Venelli. Caesar said further:
"These Veneti exercise by far the most extensive authority over all the sea-coast in those districts, for they have numerous ships, in which it is their custom to sail to Britain, and they excel the rest in the theory and practice of navigation."
Though the Templars were organized officially about 1100 AD, note the early dating of 400 for an organization of Gaul Knights, which I would view as proto-Templars: "Following the Division of [the Roman] Empire c.AD395, the province of Belgica was divided in two, both regions coming under the direct control of the Magister equitum Galliarum or the 'Master of the Knights of Gaul'" (same website above, which has nothing to say of Merovingians or Templars, but is merely an article on Belgica history).
The Morini tribe of Belgica was, like Boulogne, situated where Europe was closest to Britain. The Morini settled Britain mostly in Kent, the part of Britain closest to Europe. This is a little interesting because Godfrey de Bouillon would stem from the kings of Kent. Kent would name "Canterbury," which would become the heart of the Anglican church.
The first division was Belgica Prima, centered on the coast just south of Boulogne, from Amiens on the Somme river to Picardi at its mouth. To the east of the Morini (and bordering them) in Flanders were the Menapii, the remnant of Manannan Danann from Ireland's Connacht region. As the ancient Fomorians were in and around Connacht, might they have become the Morini? As an alternative was "Formorian" (with an "r"), might they have been the Fir-Morini?? The European capital of the Menapii was Cassel (to be distinguished from Cassel, Germany). To the west of the Morini was the Nervii tribe of Belgae, the capital of which is now Bavai (see map of Cassel location)
Due east of the Boulogne coastal region is the city of Bonn (on the Rhine), which may have been named after the Boi: "Sometime between 205 and 184 BCE, T. Maccius Plautus refers to the Boii in his work, Captivi. 'But now he is not a Sicilian--he is a Boian; he has got a Boian woman.'" Immediately to the north of Bonn is Cologne, the chief city of the Ubii. The Boii lived due south of the Ubii on the Rhine.
"Boian" evokes MorBihan.
The Menapii in north-east Ireland were east of a region called "Boyne." "Pliny, in a list of names of islands stated by him to lie between Ireland and Britain, mentions [the Isle of] Mann, under the name Monapia...The modern S. David's in Pembrokeshire was anciently called Menevia...The names Monapia, Monavia, Mevania, Menavia, Manavia, Menapia, and Menevia, are all apparently modifications of the same word."
There you have it, the term must not be read as Menav-i or Menab-i because it's rooted in the island of Mann and/or the island of Mona. Therefore, especially as "Menavii" is indeed a valid variation of "Menapii," my hypothetical Mena-Bia or Men-Ubii is a plausible description of term. When the term is read as Men-Apii, it evokes Apis/Hapi the bull but also Apis the bee. As Men-Abii it evokes the bee.
The Salian Franks attacked the Ubii in Cologne and made it their capital. Why? Were these Salians previously Ubi themselves? Note this statement: "...just as the Sigambri, the Salii, and the Ubii came to be classed as Franks."
That's the Merovingians in a nutshell, the Sicambrian Franks, the Salian Franks, and the Ubii Franks. But the question remains, were the Ubii the Abii? If the Ubii were connected to Manes, I would think so, even as Manes was the root of the Mysians, while the Mysians consisted of the Abii. And so note that the Ubii were on the Rhine in the vicinity of Maine and Mentz.
Behold Strabo speaks of the Abii of Thrace : "And mingled with [the Abii] are also the Celtic tribes - the Boii, the Scordisci, and the Taurisci. However...the Taurisci are called also "Ligurisci" and "Tauristae."
Notice that the word used is "mingled," not merely living nearby to one another. Two points, the Abii lived among the Boii in Thrace, even as the Ubii and the Boii lived near each other in France. And the Taurisci, a bull peoples on the Danube, sound like they're the proto-Ligurians, wherefore the Boii among the Taurisci were likely the Boii that had founded Bologne (next to Liguria). I feel that the Taurisci are thus identified as the Pollux migration to Liguria, since Pollux became the Ligurians.
Eratosthenes put the following peoples together in one breath: "The Ethiopians, the Ligurians, and also the Scythians." What could Ethiopians have to do with Ligurians?
[I think the Ligurians were from king Tereus of Thrace, because I found he to be the same as Merops, king of Ethiopia. Doesn't "Tereus" evoke the Taurus bull? I think he'll prove to be the proto-Tros peoples that founded Troy, meaning that "Troy" is rooted in "bull" if "Tros" was.]
The Morini settled in Kent were joined by the Jutes, for it is known that Kent was settled by Jutes. They also settled Hampshire, where the Meon peoples lived. The Meonians were ancestors of Lydians (the sun god, Attis, was ruler of the Meonians and father of Lydus). Leo Diaconus, as late as the 10th century AD, called the peoples of Thrace (by that time the Bulgarians), Meonians.
As Manes was ancestral to Attis, can we read "Menapii " as the Meon-Apii and/or Manes-Apii? After all, a common alternative of "Meoni" is "Maeoni."
If the Bulgarians were Meonians, why couldn't the Fir Bolg and the Belgae also have been Meonians/Lydians? This places Lydians in extreme western Europe. And just as Lydians are mythically descended from Kybele, so "Herodotus, in a passage (vii. 77) speaks of 'Cabelees the Maeonians.'"
