I've been seeking the family in Europe from whom the triple red chevron symbol was taken to create the original design of the Great Seal of the United States (this is a modern version of the original). But don't be deceived, the Seal is not great at all, for it belongs to Satanic powers disguised with a Christian cloak.
I had found that the triple red chevron on a white background had belonged to rulers of Wales, and that the Clare triple red chevron on gold came to depict areas of Wales where Clares had ruled.
I suspect that the one with white (technically, silver) background was a version of the one with the gold background, and I think I have now found the origin of the gold one in the Burgh surname that married the mother of a Claro (later "Sinclair," to be distinguished, according to some, from the "Clare" surname). I stumbled over this finding while seeking the origin of Brandenburg Hohens. When I learned that Potsdam-Babelsberg is the capital of Brandenburg, I recalled that the Babel surname was important, but couldn't remember why. Then I viewed it again: aside from the German Babel Coat being a mermaid (i.e. Melusine?), the English Babel Coat is very evocative of the Great Seal of the United States, using an eagle and exactly the 13 stripes, except in blue and white. [Strange. In August, I checked the English Babel Coat, but the one displayed was no longer the eagle on 13 stripes, but on only six stripes. I know I saw the 13 stripes. In the same way, I had described a certain Crispin Coat, but upon checking for it, it was gone and replaced with another design. The great importance of the Babel Coat using the same design as in the Great Seal is that the first design for the Great Seal (triple red chevron on white) is the symbol of the Babenburg-surname Coat.].
I then checked the Brent Coat to see if there was a Brandenburg connection. I found a wyvern dragon, a Vere symbol. In the surname's description, I found this : "The Brent family lived in Somerset in the area of Brent, from where their family name is taken. The Brent family was originally from Conteville, in the arrondissement of Eure in Normandy...they are conjecturally descended from Ralf de Conteville who was Lord of the manor of Brent..."
The natural thing to do was to look up Ralf de Conteville. I found that he was the son of Herlwin of Conteville, and that Herlwin had married the mother of William the Conqueror (died 1087), a Claro. This led me to the doorstep of the solution, for by this time I had known that the triple chevron on gold belonged to the Dutch Burgh Coat [update: chevron design has been changed at houseofnames to stars since writing this], and lo and behold that Herlwin was himself a Burgh:
John de Burgo CONTEVILLE, Earl of Comyn, Baron of Tonsburgh (Tourborough) in Normandy, general of the Norman duke's forces and governor of his chief towns, hence the family name de Burgo, or Burgh...Children: 1. Herlwin de Burgh de CONTEVILLE b. abt 1000/01, d. c 1066
There you have it. John Burgh had Herlwin Burgh de Conteville for a son, and he married the wife (i.e. widow) of the Conqueror's father (Robert I of Normandy). There are two points/problems to make here: 1) the Clares of Wales used the red chevron on gold and yet they were not descended from these Burghs/Contevilles, but rather from Richard I of Normandy (ancestor of the Conqueror), suggesting that these Burghs picked the symbol up from the Normans, not vice versa. Herlwin Burgh did not marry any of the Normans, but a wife of the Normans, wherefore, the problem is, there is a possibility that the symbol belonged, not to the Normans, but to her family. 2) She was Herleva (also "Arlette"), daughter of Fulbert, a tanner from Falaise (Normandy).
When I checked the Valley/Valles Coats, zowzers, I found that the French one uses three red bars on gold! I thought I had something of a key, but on second thought, it's not likely that Herlwin Burgh would have taken a symbol from merely a tanner (of Falaise). It's more likely that the tanner's daughter, marrying into the Claro family, adopted the triple-red chevron of the Claros, and then passed a straight-line version to her clan...by which I mean to suggest that the tanner of Falaise was of the straight-line Valles clan.
I have found another three-red-bar-on-gold Coat belonging to the Burghers of proto-Prussia, and while this makes my head spin, I'll take the clue for what it might be worth. In this Burgher Coat, the bars are wavy, as if to indicate the Sinclair Cross. This could then indicate that the symbol was at first that of the Claros (though not necessarily), and the finger points to Richard I of Normandy, ancestor of the Clares of Wales. From Richard, it passed to the Conqueror, and to his wife. From her, it passed to the Burghs when she married one, as well as to her Falaise family by the "Valles" version.
When I wrote this chapter, I was desperate to find where "Falaise" originated, but was unable. Since then, I have written a few other chapters, and these led me to Sion of Switzerland, which was in the Wallis canton, alternative spelling "Valais"!! Do I have it? Yes, surely, but also the origin of the Conqueror's bloodline on his mother's side, in/near Sion (also "Sitten"), what I revealed in the previous chapter as a town of the Sithone Edones. See location of Falaise on this map of Calvados..
Plus, when I was writing on Thuria (previous chapter), I saw the location of Stenyclarus in Messenia, directly north of Thuria, and so now I can suggest strongly that "Stenyclarus" evokes both the Sithones/Sitten and the Claros/Clares. Therefore, may I ask if the Conqueror married into a Sithone family because his own Claro ancestors had already married into a Sithone family...from the founders of Stenyclarus??? Indeed, a few generations before the Conqueror, his ancestor, Rollo, had married Poppa of Valois, a near-match with "Valais."
[Update March 2008 -- Just realized that "Valois," in the southern part of Oise, could thereby have named after Oise: "Val(ley) of Oise." There is in this area (of northern Paris) the modern region of Val-d'Oise. However, the Valois page at houseofnames.com once claimed that the surname, as a whole, meant "valley." To the east of Val-d'Oise is Pays ("country") de Valois, the territory in which we find the locality of Crepy-en-Valois. The latter was apparently named in honor of the Crepon surname, of Crispin affiliations, which last month I traced to Gareb, a hill in Jerusalem that I claim, with evidence, was founded by Yervand and/or Jerevan elements, namely Arphaxidite Hebrews who evolved into the mythical dragon of Ares. This topic will be in later chapters, not yet published as I write. Unfortunately, I cannot find an article telling where Valois of Normandy was located; Pays de Valois was outside of Normandy. End Update]
I should also mention that the "Steno" portion of "Stenoclarus" was likely depicted by mythical Sthenelus/Sthenelaus (depiction of Liguria but also of the swan line from Lake Sevan in Caucasia), the latter being made (by myth writers) a son of Aegyptus! That exclamation mark is because Aegyptus settled Messenia (not to re-mention my theory that the creators of the Great Seal of the United States knew themselves to be from mythical Aegyptus, for which reason they wrote "Coeptis" on that Seal). In this picture, the Sithones are from the Aegyptus part of Egypt, way upstream on the Nile as far as Memphis, and to that I'll add that I had traced the Sithones, in the previous chapter, to a mythical Memnon of Ethiopia...which would therefore appear to be a Memphis entity.
I recall suggesing a trace of the Claro clan also to Clarus, a sorcerous city of Lydia, and so behold that Sardis, the Lydian capital, was founded by mythical Sardo, son of Sthenelus! Another mythical Sthenelus was made a king of Liguria, and it could just be that from this Sthenelus (no doubt a depiction of Sithones in Liguria) founded Sion, for Liguria was home to Savona, while the House of Savoy stretched roughly from that region of Italy to Sion.
I am starting to feel that I have finally found the origin of the triple chevron, in the Valais/Wallis canton of Switzerland. My previous suspicion that the triple chevron traces to Piedmont is not necessarily contradictory, for Piedmont was in northern Italy in relation to Savoy. But why three chevron, I do not yet know.
I would suggest that the Burgh/Clare symbol was linked to the red and gold Vaux checks, since "Vaux" is said to mean "valley." This is not contradictory even though the Vaux were in southern France, for I have caught wind of, and will explore, the possibility that the Vaux stem from Goths of northern Italy.
See too that the Welles Coat is also red and gold; the Welles family claims that the surname is a version of "Vaux," but the Valles surname seems a better fit with "Welles"...meaning that "Vaux" should prove to be connected to the Wallis/Valais canton of Switzerland.
I now need to entertain the origin of the chevron symbol, not in the Norman Claro clan, but in Poppa of Valois. If true, the symbol entered the Claro family at Rollo's children...explaining why the Clares of Wales (to be distinguished from the Norman Claro line) used it, for we find the Clare line beginning after Rollo with Richard I of Normandy (died 996):
"The first recorded member of the de Clare dynasty was Godfrey, Count of Eu. Godfrey was an illegitimate son of Richard [I] of Normandy."
I now turn to the Crispin surname because it is believed to be at the roots of the Clare surname via Richard I. Here's the scoop:
BALDWIN of Moeles (d. 1100?) was the second son of Gilbert, count of Eu, who was a grandson of Richard the Fearless, and one of the guardians of the youth of William the Conqueror. On the murder of his father in 1040 Baldwin and his elder brother Richard, the ancestor of the house of Clare, were taken by their guardian to the court of Flanders for refuge....
Some say that Richard had relations with a concubine when giving birth to Gilbert Crispin (count of Brione, and of Eu) by his mistress, Constance, while others say that Crispin was the son of the Godfrey above. As Gilbert Crispin's son, Richard fitzGilbert, was the first earl of Clare, it would indeed appear that Gilbert Crispin was a Clare from Richard I.
I'm about to take the position that Gilbert Crispin (born 980ish) was from a bloodline connected to Falaise. Let me first show that, seven centuries before Gilbert Crispin, mythical/legendary "Crispin and Crispinian were once the Catholic patron saints of cobblers, tanners, and leather workers. Born to a noble Roman family in the 3rd century AD..."
Doesn't that evoke the tanner of Falaise? I ask this because the Crispin Coat, four red bars on white [design at houseofnames.com has changed since writing this], seems more a version of the Valles Coat than a version of the Clare chevron. Moreover, the Crispin Coat evokes the Wassa and Washington Coats, but couple these things with this:
"As William [the Conqueror] grew older he proved himself brave and wise. By the advice of his lords he appointed as his guardian Ralph de Wacy, who had slain Gilbert [Crispin] of Eu, and gave him command of his forces."
When I checked the Wacy Coat, I just about fell off my horse: it was the Wassa Coat!! Ralph was also "Raoul de Gace," and so see at the above link that "Gace" is included in the list of Wassa variations. Why have I not read this anywhere in articles on George-Washington roots? Surely, the Freemason founders/builders of Washington DC link back to this Wacy character, and I'm imagining that the Crispins and Wacys were somehow related for more reason that the similarity of their Coats.
A couple of days after making that find, I made a significant discovery seemingy clinching the Wacy connection to the Claros/Sinclairs): the English Vassy Coat uses the Sinclair-cross design, but the Coat is in red and white, the Washington colors. The Vassy surname derives from the location of Vassy, Normandy.
Gilbert Crispin goes back like so: Crispin > his mother Heloise of Guisnes > Gisela of Lotheringia > Teutberge of Arls > Boso III (died 855), and then to an "unknown" Engeltrude, wife of Boso III. The latter was count not only of Turin, but of Valois. I'm assuming that while Boso was count in Turin, Engeltrude was of Valois; e.g. her father had been a count of Valois, but on his death was replaced by her husband (Boso). The Arms of Turin are now a gold bull on blue background; compare it with the modern Boso-surname Coat.
I recall asserting many chapter ago, with absolute-zero historical evidence, that the chevron symbol was from Piedmont. I often find that when I make strong assertions on mere intuition, they turn out to be correct for reasons I can't explain at the ime, as though perhaps I am being Led to discover the dragon's den (just don't call me Clare-voyant). Turin just happens to be in Piedmont, wherefore I can now assume tentatively that the red triple chevron belonged to the family of Boso, for he could easily explain how it entered the Valois family. From Valois, it entered the Claro clan via Poppa's marriage to Rollo, and as their daughter was Crispina, some say, who gave birth to the Crispins, these Crispins, as the Clares, took the symbol forward to the Welsh borderlands, where it ended up in Gloucester and Pembrokeshire before the Atlantic crossing to Washington DC.
At the Valois Coat site, we find that the term means "valley," and that the surname was first found in Normandy. In fact, one variation given at the link above is "Valais," thus supporting a link to Valais of Switzerland. Turin was not far from Valais. Plus, as per my Taurus identification of the ancien Dorians, "Turin" ought to apply (especially as Turin (= "Torino") was indeed named after the bull). Because "bos" means "bull," I take it that Boso was a dedicated Dorian of the dragon cult i.e. from the Taurus = Zeus cult.
I'll add my tentative opinion that Crispin was from Poppa of Valois. To support this, there is the following evidence:
"According to [Mr. Grimaldi], Crispinus, Baron of Bec, was the son of Crispina, daughter of Rollo, by Grimaldus, Prince of Monaco."
Not all agree that Crispina was the daughter of Rollo and Poppa, but even those who aren't sure use them as her parents in genealogies. The website below shows that Crispina's son, "Crispin de Bec" (born 940: Wikipedia) was the father of Gilbert Crispin. This identifies the first Clares as Barons of Bec. For Rollo's family tree, see here.
At the Valois link, we read that the surname was "First found in Normandy where this distinguished family were anciently seated at Murcay. Hmm, the red triple chevron of Wales, on white background, belonged to the rulers of Morgannwg. I can't find the location of Murcay, but suspect that it links to Armorica (i.e. what was once Brittany and Normandy combined). Since writing this, I've found the district of Morges in southern Switzerland, which therefore becomes a prime suspect for furnishing the chevron symbol.
I found another red triple chevron on white background in the Arms of Eure-et-Loir, France. I think I can tie this Eure symbol to the same symbol in the Morgan terms of Wales. First off, the Brent surname (which descended from Conteville, where the triple-chevron-on-gold Burghs were from) was first found in Eure, and so recall that the Arms of Brandenburg Electorate incorporated the red triple chevron on white.
Secondly, Bec was in Eure, and moreover "The abbot of Bec was also a can. of Wells..." (this applies because I suspect that the triple chevron is from Wallis, Switzerland). Third, Gilbert Crispin of Bec, a candidate for belonging to the Wallis/Valais name, was a ruler of Brionne, also in Eure.
Many chapters ago, I displayed the triple red chevron on white from the
Arms of Letchworth Garden City. It was only upon discovering the symbol at Letchworth that I decided to peg it as an Illuminati symbol. At that early time, I had no idea if the symbol would turn out to be relevant to this dragon hunt. You can imagine my great satisfaction when learning (later) that the symbol was that of Washingon DC itself.
At the website below, where we see the Letchworth design and read the description, we find: "The [three red] chevrons refer to the old families of Montfitchet and Barrington, Lords of the Manor of Letchworth." From another website, I learned that a symbol of the Montfitchets is a red triple chevron on gold, and so I checked to see if the one on white belonged to the Barringtons, and sure enough houseofnames.com shows just that color scheme in the Barrington Coat. The Barrington Coat even has the same symbol at the top as has the Arms of Eure-et-Loir. What is very useful is the page telling the following about the Barringtons: "Their original family seat was at Barentin in Normandy." In fact, Barentin is in the Seine-Maritime departement, situated on the northern border of Eure, wherefore I would suggest that the Barrington Coat is of the same family which furnished the Arms of Eure-et-Loire.
I find Cohen-significance in the Barrington name, for it evokes the checkered Baring surname (red and gold checks). As Bec is looking very central, is it a coincidence that a version of "Baring" is "Beckering" (according to houseofnames.com)? Nay, but I feel confident in tracing the Barrington triple chevron symbol to Bec and/or its environs. Remember, the town was called Bec Hellouin, while the Hellouin Coat is very likely a version of the Clare Coat.
I now believe I can give an answer as to the origin of the triple chevron symbol. Recall the Beaumont earls of Leicester, that I had tied them to the fleur de lis and therefore to the French Levi family using a black triple chevron on gold. The first Beaumont, Robert (also "Roger" in some records), became earl of Leicester in 1081, and, by marriage, earl of Meulan the following year (the Arms of Meulan were red and gold checks, indicating roots in the stalk of Bec(kering) and Vaux). By the time of at least Robert Beaumont (died 1204), fourth earl of Leicester, the Beaumont Coat had itself become red and gold checks; see the Arms of Robert Beaumont here, or at the page below.
Robert Beaumont's 's father was Humphrey de Vieilles, a term that seems rooted in "vieil" = villa(ge). The webpage below implies that Beaumont was in charge of Bec in the period wherein the Crispin family had hold of it: "...the church of St Nicaise [was] refounded by the count [Robert Beaumont] as a priory of the Norman abbey of Bec-Hellouin." The possibility is, therefore, that Beaumont, through his rule in Bec, transferred the symbol there, it changing to a white/silver background in the process of spreading to/through the Barrington family. The significance here is that Beaumonts descended from Danes (i.e. Humphrey de Vieilles was from Danes), even as Rollo is said to have been from Danes. Note that while Rollo married Poppa of Valois, Robert Beaumont's son "married Isabel de Vermandois...[who] lived in Valois." The chevron symbol could therefore trace back to the Danish ancestors of the Beaumonts, who then passed it on to Rollo via Poppa. In this picture, the Danes which furnished the Beaumonts and/or Poppa must trace further back to the dragon cult in Valles, Switzerland...suggesting that Danes as a whole trace to Valles, especially as Valles and Savoy are beginning to look related. That is, I see a Sav(oy) connection to "Swiss," and in turn I suspect that these north-Italy terms furnished the Svi = Swedes in Scandinavia, brother tribe with the Danes.
Apparently, the Svi of north Italy, after migrating to Scandinavia, married noble Danann of Britain (themselves colonized in south-western Norway at the time) to form the Danes proper.
See the Baring/Beckering Coat again, not just the red and gold checks, but the black diagonal bar. I keep a record of various Coats of surnames that could potentially become important, and in one such case, in the Warrington surname, I had written this beside it: "three gold phoenix on black diagonal banner." The design shown at houseofnames.com has since changed, but the point is, "Warrington" seems a variation of "Barrington." See the same diagonal black bar in the Eure-surname Coat and Crest...which is essentially the Vere Coat and Crest. Then, see the Layton Coat, not just the Vere-like shield, but the wyvern dragon (a Vere symbol) as the Crest.
I'm showing the Layton/Laton Coat because the red chevron on gold that belong to the Montfitchets are seen on the Arms of Leyton Council. The webpage where the Leyton-Council Arms are displayed says this: "The Church of Leyton was given by Gilbert Montfitchet to the Abbey and Convent of Stratford in 1134...The Abbey of Stratford was founded in William Montfitchet in 1134 and the [three red] chevronels [on gold] are from his family's arms."
One could get the impression that the Montfitchets were using the Clare symbol. See the same black diagonal bar in the Arms of Pembrokeshire, and note the black cross...that I'd say is a version of the Sinclair Cross (Clares ruled in Pembrokeshire).
Eure-et-Loir goes back to the surname, "la Fleche," which as I have pointed out, was one side of the first Plantagenet (Geoffrey). Two generations after Lancelin de Beaugency, born in Fleche (he is the first-known La Fleche), Helie/Elias de la Fleche married Mathilde of Château du Loire, and together they had for a daughter Erembourge, wife of Fulk V, king of Jerusalem. Erembourge and Fulk produced Geoffrey Plantagenet. I don't think it's a coincidence that "Fleche" and "Fulk" are so similar i.e. they were likely the same family.
Since Poppa of Valois was born in Evreux, a town named by the Ebroicum ("Eburovices" on the alternative map of Gaul") whom I trace to Eburum on this map of ancient Lucania), see nearby Buxentium/Pyxus, which might now be a better candidate in your mind for furnishing Bec than when I mentioned it before. "Lancelin de Beaugency" evokes Buxentium. And do see Velia again smack beside Buxentium, as that should explain why a Wells family came to operate/rule at Bec.
See the Hales river also on the Lucania map. As I suspect the Velia peoples, on the Hales river, to be a colony of Halybes, they could have been responsible for the "Valibus" version of "Wells/Vaux." "Valibus" and "Halybes" are similar enough, and if they were the same term, everything Vaux and/or Baux are rooted in the dragon-cult Halybes. Therefore, not only did this lead to the PenDragon > Arthur cult (disguised by myth writers as a sacred Christian sect), but to certain Frank kings. Velia evokes the Veliocasses, which are seen on the Gaul map smack beside the Eburovices. Moreover, as proof that the Veliocasses were Halybes (alternatively the Khaldi), we see the Caletes smack beside the Veliocasses. These were all on the northern end of Normandy.
In these two Wells Coats (from webpage below), there's evidence for the Wells-surname link to the Vaux surname...which link was made by a Wells-surname website. The Wells Coat on the right (from Wells of Sommerset) uses a gold star on red, the same as used by the Scottish Vaux Coat.
Since I seek the triple chevron on white background in Eure-et-Loir, I'll add that Beaugency was a town on the Loire River, in the departement of Loiret. Also on the Loire is the city of Blois, which may have been a version of "Valois." I think these things are the well-guarded secrets of the secret societies.
[Update October 2007 -- The Beaugency family used blue and gold checks as early as Jean II de Beaugency (died 1217). I noted (at webpage below) that the counts of Dreux used the same checks, and it's interesting that smack beside Dreux was the county of Perche, which used the red triple chevron on white.
It's makes for quite the intriguing hunt to read the following two statements: "At the end of the Xth century, the count of Blois gave some lands around Nogent to one of his vassals, Rotrou, to prevent any Norman incursion" (italics mine). Nogent was in Perche, and as we see at the perse.modulonet webpage above, the red triple chevron belong to Rotrou IV (died 1191). Then at Wikipedia we read: "After 1325, both counties [= Perch and Alencon] were generally held by a member or members of a cadet line of the House of Valois."
One can see that "Perche" and "Burgh" are similar enough to investigate. I checked the Berk surname and got the Irish a Burgh/Burk Coat! What's more, the description says that they were "granted lands by Strongbow, the Earl of Pembroke, for their assistance in the invasion of Ireland in 1172." That was Strongbow Clare!! End Update]
Keep in mind that "chevron" may be code for "Hebron" and therefore the Eburs. The Eburovices did in fact live in northern Italy, but the details are unknown to me at this point. I can only suspect that they played a major role in southern Switzerland, in the regions of Morges, Lausanne and Valais. The Valais region was more-likely a Veliocasses settlement, but for all I know the Veliocasses may have been a branch of Eburovices.
As southern Italy was Muse infested, which Muses are the basis of the dragon cult all the way to British Avalon and America, I'll mention that Crispin's mother, Heloise of Guisnes (born 958ish), is Muse-interesting because "Guisnes" evokes "Kythnos," the latter island being a Greek source not only for Muses, but the origin of the Martinaki(a) family from which Inger the Varangian belonged. The island was also the location of Merichas, which evokes Mercia, Morges, Armorica, and Muse-important terms such as Morgan la Fay. She, a mythical code depicting Muses of Avalon, is likely the La Faye family...which married Clares: see
For new readers, I suspect that Inger was at the bottom of the so-called "Rose Line," though not in Sweden where other Varangians lived, but in France, in the very regions that were home to the Fulks. This theory was made before I had discovered the Illuminati-importance of the Swiss, wherefore now that I have become sure of Swiss ancestry to dragon-cult Swedes, I would peg Varangians (who did in fact display dragons on their ships) as one major extension of Swiss Illuminatists. I will view Inger's family as a Frank extension of the same, and keep an eye out for his unknown family origins. I have the feeling that the triple chevron was of his Varangian fold.
Guisnes (north-western France) was controlled by a combination of Dano-Normans and counts of Flanders, the Normans having conquered it from Flanders, though the two formed a marital alliance (in Arnolf I). Heloise (Crispin's mother) was herself the "daughter of Sigfried le Danois [i.e. Dane] de Guisnes and Elstrude de Flanders." One therefore has some reason to seek the Clare chevron symbol in these Crispin ancestors, especially as the triple chevron (in various color schemes) is rife to this day in the Netherlands.
Gilbert Crispin's parentage is disputed. He is sometimes said to be the son of Godfrey of Eu and Brionne (the first Clare mentioned at top of chapter). In any case, Gilbert Crispin was himself the ruler of Brionne/Brienne, and one wonders if this had anything to do with the Brent surname and/or Brandenburg, especially as a Brandenburg symbol (black lion on gold) is shared by Flanders to this day. Wikipedia, in a Brandenburg article, says that the city was a Slav settlement called "Brenna," very near indeed to "Brienne." Moreover, the "Brionne" version evokes the Mysian city of the Muses: Parion. Plus, Brandenburg possesses the county of Barnim, which evokes the sacred mountain of the Muses: Parnassus. If that's not enough, the river flowing from Stenoclarus (Greece) through Thuria is labeled "Parnisus on the map of ancient Messenia.
The following quote proves that Stenoclarus was founded by Dorians, but Muses were fundamentally Dorians:
"Later Greeks agreed that a body of Dorians under Cresphontes invaded [Messenia] from Arcadia, and, taking as their capital Stenyclarus in the northern plain..."
Cresphontes became not only the ruler of StenyClarus, but of the nearby city of Messene, a city that could certainly have been named after the Muses of Mysia. But doesn't "Cresphontus" evoke "Crispin"???!!!
That can't be a coincidence, for Crispins were among the first Clares. This proves that Clares were from Stenyclarus, no minor finding. Do you see what historians are missing? They have got to stretch out and fly from their rigid coops, and allow mythology to reveal what the great lack of historical documentation cannot. This is not to praise mythology, for it is in itself a dark science meant to disguise realities. The good news: one cannot disguise realities by mythology without leaving some clues to the realities.
It occurs to me that the Flintstone cartoon was devised around Flanders and Brandenburg. Fred Flintstone was, after all, a Mason who frequented the local Water-Buffalos lodge. The Arms of Baden used two buffalo horns, says the webpage below, and it was from that House that the red eagle passed to the Brandenburg Hohens. Perhaps "Bedrock" was a take on Baden.
Fred Flintstone could allude to the several Fredericks of the Hohen royal family. Doesn't "Flintstone" evoke Flanders, and couldn't Fred's wife, Wilma, be code for the Vlaams/Flemings, founders of Flanders? Her hair was red, after all, and she wore a white dress, while the colors of the English Flemings (and Hohens) were white and red. In fact, the English Flemings use a single red chevron on white...and may for that reason be one of the three entities depicted by the triple chevron. Apparently, a branch of Flemings carried red and gold checks to Ireland.
Fred's blonde neighbor, Barney, certainly smacks of Barnim, in Brandenburg, and as Barney wore brown, the German city of Brunswick (founded by the Saxon, Bruno II) comes to mind. Brunswick (using two gold lions) was allied to Hanover, and these entities entered the British royal line upon the eradication of the Stewarts. Barney's wife, Betty (who wore blue), may therefore denote the Wettin dynasty at the root of the Windsors. [Update, days after publishing this chapter, I found the city of Wettingen, Switzerland, smack next to the city of Baden, Switzerland, both cities close to the German border where Baden, Germany, and other Hohen territories arose. See map of Aargau/Argovia canton. Then, smack beside the Baden district of Argovia, there is the commune of Brunegg (see below). End update]
As we see clubs in the Arms of Brandenburg Electors, so Bamm-Bamm (the son of Barney) carried/used a club. Bamm Bamm may depict Bamberg (Germany), for the Arms of Bamberg uses an orangey shield, while the same color is seen on Bamm Bamm at the webpage below. Also Bamm Bamm was given white hair, the predominant color on the Arms of Bamburg.
Let me tell you that the addition of Bamburg in the paragraph above was an afterthought. Then I read that Bamberg was built around Babenburg. I investigated the latter for ties to the German Babel surname (which I had found American-important), and lo and behold, I couldn't believe my eyes when I checked the Babenburg-surname Coat: red triple chevron on white!! Plus, "The male line of the Babenbergs became extinct when [Frederick II] was killed in battle in 1246 (the Henneberg branch of the Franconian Babenbergs lived on until 1583 when its lands where divided among the two branches of the Wettin family)" (round brackets not mine).
Let me show the critical importance of the Babenburg Coat as compared to the English Babel Coat. I merely need to show the Great Seal of the United States that is essentially the Babel Coat, as compared to what was at first contemplated in an original design of the Great Seal of the United States. Note that the shield is blue in the latter design, and then compare it's American eagle on blue with the eagle also on a blue shield in the Arms of Bamberg!!! (Might "Pebbles" allude to Babel?) Could it turn out that the single-most-important factor in my uncovering American-Illuminati roots, in the Babenburgs, will be in the Flintstones, and more in particular in Bamm Bamm??
These finds are incredible for yet another reason, as they can now clinch the triple-chevron link to Poppa of Valois. First see that a certain 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." Then read:
"It has also been suggested that Henry [son of Poppo above] had a son, named either Henry or, on the basis of onomastics, Berengar after his grandfather. This Berengar had a daughter named Poppa..."
Yes, that's Poppa the wife of Rollo Sinclair, wherefore Poppa came from Poppo, he being of the triple-chevron wielding Babenburgs.
[Update November 2007 -- I don't know how I missed it, but "Grapfeld" evokes "Crepon," the surname connected closely to the Crispins. Since Poppo of Grapfeld lived before the Crispins, it could be that Crispins were Babenburgs. End Update]
The big questions are: where did the Babenburg triple-chevron design come from? Did the Babenburgs obtain it from Valois, or vice versa? Or were the Babenburgs a Valois-family branch to begin with? The answers won't come in this chapter, because frankly I don't know. The possible root of the symbol is now in the Capetian Franks, for Babenburgs were just from those Franks...who were in turn Merovingians on one side and Carolingians on the other.
[Update October 2007 -- I have found what appears to be the red triple chevron on gold on the German Cassel Coat. The Cassel surname was first found in Bavaria, but no dates are given to show whether or not it was the original design. Cassel/Hesse in Germany was the landing of the Holy Grail cult, named after the Catti Germanics. See the dragon with sword in the "Jewish" Hesse Coat. End Update]
Milo of Crotona, a mythical character of southern Italy, was depicted with a club, but as he was also depicted as a pugilist (i.e. a boxer), I root him to Puglia (Apulia), where we find the major Messapian (Messenian?) city of Brindisi! Note in the following quote the Brent term by which Brindisi was once called:
"Brindisi was probably an Illyrian settlement predating the Roman expansion. The Latin name Brundisium, through the Greek Brentesion, is a corruption of the Messapian Brention meaning 'deer's head.'
I also found this quote: "From the late 12th to early 13th centuries, Apulia was a favorite residence of the Hohenstaufen emperors, notably Frederick II."
Assuming with good reason that these Brent-like terms have "Ebur" as their root, I would create an hypothetical like so: Eburentium. What does that look like? It's amazing that even before I created this hypothetical, and even before I saw "Eber" in "Brent," I had Abruzzo in mind as the root of the triple chevron, for the Province of Aquila Arms (capital of Abruzzo) uses an eagle on three mountain peaks. I have long rooted the Eburs in Abruzzo.
The Arms of Provence-Alps also uses an eagle on three mountain peaks, and as evidence that this was a Cohen/Hohen domain and design, we first of all see a blue checkered pattern in the water. But as the eagle is red, it could just be the red Hohen eagle. The English Crispin Coat uses gold and green with horseshoes, as does the Leslie Coat. In the previous chapter wherein I traced the fleur de lis to Lusatia (of Brandenburg), I wrote:
When I found that there is a location of Lesna (in Upper Lusatia) by the Kwisa river, I stumbled over the city that may be the root of the Leslie clan of Scotland, for I read that the Polish city of Podkowa Lesna means "horseshoe forest." I verified that "podkowa" means "horseshoe" (I'll ignore the "forest" definition given to "Lesna"), and the point is: the Leslie Coat uses three horseshoes (and nails)."
During the writing of that chapter, I stumbled over Saxon origins on this Kwisa river. I now note the Saxon sword acting as the English Crispin Crest (link above), but certain that the Crispin surname was from the Danes, I now conclude that there was at some point a Danish-Saxon marital alliance in the family.
I had tentatively made a Pollock-surname connection to Poland for the obvious reason, but when I found that Podkowa Lesna was in Poland, I theorized that the Pollock clan (said to descend from Clovis I) was just from that city. Now I note that the Pollock Coat uses the same colors as the Crispin Coat, and that Pollocks stemmed from a "Fulbert the Saxon" while the tanner of Falaise (the Conqueror's father) was named Fulbert.
