Ancestors of Yngvi-Frey King of The Swedes

26 May 2001


This report includes Joseph of Arimathea (born 0030 BC). Uncle of Mary, Mother of Christ. Keeper of the Holy Grail, much more.....He, along with Mary's father, is descended from the line of David via Nathan.

Also here is Thor King of Thrace, leading back to the early Trojans.

Legend and myth cross reality here, including that of the Holy Grail and more……

This report concludes with the biblical branches of Arphaxad and Madai, which continue back to Adam. Also an early “Kings of Briton” branch. These two branches are at very different places on the timeline, as I have condensed generations here more than once. Take reference to the Notes!

Mymbyr’s line continues back in Rep_Mymbyr, passing through Troy and continuing back to Noah.



First Generation


1.      Yngvi-Frey King of The Swedes was born about 235 in Uppsala, Sweden.


         Frey took the kingdom after Njord, and was called drot by the Swedes, and they paid taxes to

         him.  He was, like his father, fortunate in friends and in good seasons.  Frey built a great temple

         at Upsal, made it his chief seat, and gave it all his taxes, his land, and goods.  Then began the

         Upsal domains, which have remained ever since.  Then began in his days the Frode-peace;

         and then there were good seasons, in all the land, which the Swedes ascribed to Frey, so that

         he was more worshipped than the other gods, as the people became much richer in his days by

         reason of the peace and good seasons.  His wife was called Gerd, daughter of Gymis, and their

         son was called Fjolne.  Frey was called by another name, Yngve; and this name Yngve was

         considered long after in his race as a name of honour, so that his descendants have since been

         called Ynglinger.  Frey fell into a sickness; and as his illness took the upper hand, his men took

         the plan of letting few approach him.  In the meantime they raised a great mound, in which they

         placed a door with three holes in it.  Now when Frey died they bore him secretly into the mound,

          but told the Swedes he was alive; and they kept watch over him for three years.  They brought

         all the taxes into the mound, and through the one hole they put in the gold, through the other

         the silver, and through the third the copper money that was paid. Peace and good seasons


From "Heimskringla" a chronicle of the Kings of Norway By Snorri Sturluson (c. 1179 - 1241)



         Yngvi-Frey married Gerd Gymissdotter. Gerd was born about 239 in Uppsala, Sweden.



Second Generation


2.      Njord King of The Swedes was born about 214 in Noatun, Sweden.

         (after Odin's death) Njord of Noatun was then the sole sovereign of the Swedes; and he

         continued the sacrifices, and was called the drot or sovereign by the Swedes, and he received

         scatt and gifts from them.  In his days were peace and plenty, and such good years, in all

         respects, that the Swedes believed Njord ruled over the growth of seasons and the prosperity

         of the people.  In his time all the diar or gods died, and blood-sacrifices were made for them. 

         Njord died on a bed of sickness, and before he died made himself be marked for Odin with the

         spear-point.  The Swedes burned him, and all wept over his grave-mound.


         Njord took a wife called Skade; but she would not live with him and married afterwards Odin,

         and had many sons by him, of whom one was called Saeming; and about him Eyvind

         Skaldaspiller sings thus: --


              "To Asa's son Queen Skade bore

              Saeming, who dyed his shield in gore, --

              The giant-queen of rock and snow,

              Who loves to dwell on earth below,

              The iron pine-tree's daughter, she

              Sprung from the rocks that rib the sea,

              To Odin bore full many a son,

              Heroes of many a battle won."


         To Saeming Earl Hakon the Great reckoned back his pedigree.  This Swithiod they called

         Mannheim, but the Great Swithiod they called Godheim; and of Godheim great wonders and

         novelties were related.

From "Heimskringla" a chronicle of the Kings of Norway By Snorri Sturluson (c. 1179 - 1241)




Third Generation


4.      Yngvi King of Sweden was born about 193 in Noatun, Sweden.

         Yngvi is described in the Prose Edda as the son of Oden who became the king of Sweden after

         Oden. There is some confusion here between the Anglo-Saxon Chronicles and Snorri's

         account, involving this Yngvi, his son Njord, and Njord's son Yngvi.



Fourth Generation


8.      King Oden (Woden, Woutan) of Asgard was born about 215 in Asgard, Asia or East Europe. He married Frigg.

         Other children of Odin: Wechta, Wihltaeg, Casere, Sjold, Saeming (the last by other wife). Oden's two sons listed here began long lines of rulers, Yngvi in the Scandanavian regions and Beldeg in the Northern German /  Saxon lines, including a long line of rulers in Wessex.


         I finally made a connection to this Anglo-Saxon line, passing through Albert the Great King of England.

         I am connected to Yngvi as the Scandanavian line leads to Rollo marrying Lady Poppa, William the Conqueror's ancestors.


         (this is from Brian Tompsett's notes)

         The Prose Edda shows the names of other Sons who became the Kings of Denmark, Sweden

         and Norway, but I can't find analogues for these in the Anglo Saxon Chronicles. They are

         Skjöldr of Denmark, Saemingr of Norway and Yngvi of Sweden.


***********************(following is from Snorri)

         The country east of the Tanaquisl in Asia was called Asaland, or Asaheim, and the chief city in

         that land was called Asgaard.  In that city was a chief called Odin, and it was a great place for

         sacrifice.  It was the custom there that twelve temple priests should both direct the sacrifices,

         and also judge the people. They were called Diar, or Drotner, (Craig's notes: Druids? Odin's

         wife Frigg was descended from Druids) and all the people served and obeyed them.  Odin was

         a great and very far-travelled warrior, who conquered many kingdoms, and so successful was

         he that in every battle the victory was on his side.  It was the belief of his people that victory

         belonged to him in every battle.  It was his custom when he sent his men into battle, or on any

         expedition, that he first laid his hand upon their heads, and called down a blessing upon them;

         and then they believed their

         undertaking would be successful.  His people also were accustomed, whenever they fell into

         danger by land or sea, to call upon his name; and they thought that always they got comfort

         and aid by it, for where he was they thought help was near.

         Often he went away so far that he passed many seasons on his journeys.


         There goes a great mountain barrier from north-east to south-west, which divides the Greater

         Swithiod from other kingdoms. South of this mountain ridge it is not far to Turkland, where Odin

         had great possessions.  In those times the Roman chiefs went wide around in the world,

         subduing to themselves all people; and on this account many chiefs fled from their domains. 

         But Odin having foreknowledge, and magic-sight, knew that his posterity would come to settle

         and dwell in the northern half of the world. He therefore set his brothers Ve and Vilje over

         Asgaard; and he himself, with all the gods and a great many other people, wandered out, first

         westward to Gardarike, and then south to Saxland.  He had many sons; and after having

         subdued an extensive

         kingdom in Saxland, he set his sons to rule the country.  He himself went northwards to the sea,

          and took up his abode in an island which is called Odins in Fyen.  Then he sent Gefion across

         the sound to the north to discover new countries; and she came to King Gylve, who gave her a

         ploughgate of land.  Then she went to

         Jotunheim, and bore four sons to a giant, and transformed them into a yoke of oxen.  She

         yoked them to a plough, and broke out the land into the ocean right opposite to Odins.  This

         land was called Sealand, and there she afterwards settled and dwelt.

         Skjold, a son of Odin, married her, and they dwelt at Leidre. Where the ploughed land was is a

         lake or sea  called Laage.  In the Swedish land the fjords of Laage correspond to the nesses in

         Sealand.  Brage the Old sings thus of it: --

              "Gefion from Gylve drove away,

              To add new land to Denmark's sway --

              Blythe Gefion ploughing in the smoke

              That steamed up from her oxen-yoke:

              Four heads, eight forehead stars had they,

              Bright gleaming, as she ploughed away;

              Dragging new lands from the deep main

              To join them to the sweet isle's plain.


         Now when Odin heard that things were in a prosperous condition in the land to the east beside

         Gylve; he went thither, and Gylve made a peace with him, for Gylve thought he had no strength

         to oppose the people of Asaland.  Odin and Gylve had many tricks and enchantments against

         each other; but the Asaland people had always the superiority.  Odin took up his residence at the Maelare lake, at the place now called  Old Sigtun. There he erected a large temple, where there were sacrifices according to the  customs of the Asaland people.  He appropriated to himself the whole of that district, and called it Sigtun.  To the temple priests he gave also domains.  Njord dwelt in Noatun, Frey in Upsal, Heimdal in the Himinbergs, Thor in Thrudvang, Balder in Breidablik; to all of them he gave good estates.

From "Heimskringla" a chronicle of the Kings of Norway By Snorri Sturluson (c. 1179 - 1241)

9.      Frigg was born about 220 in Asgard, Asia or Eastern Europe.



Fifth Generation


16.     Frithuwald (Bor) was born about 190 in Asgard, Asia or East Europe. He married Beltsa.

         Shown in Anglo Saxon chronicles, but not shown in The Prose Edda.


         Odin had two brothers, the one called Ve, the other Vilje, and they governed the kingdom when

         he was absent.  It happened once when Odin had gone to a great distance, and had been so

         long away that the people Of Asia doubted if he would ever return home, that his two brothers

         took it upon themselves to divide his estate; but both of them took his wife Frigg to themselves. 

         Odin soon after returned home, and took his wife back.

         From "Heimskringla" a chronicle of the Kings of Norway By Snorri Sturluson (c. 1179 - 1241)


17.     Beltsa was born about 194 in Asgard, Asia or East Europe.


18.     Cadwalladr.



Sixth Generation


32.     Frithuwulf was born about 160 in Asgard, Asia or East Europe.


         Not shown the Prose Edda but Shown in the Anglo Saxon Chronicles. Various sources list /

         omit differently. Confusions about names of these: Flocwald, Frithuwulf, Frealaf, Frithuwald


36.     Llewfer Mawr (Lucius) ap Coel King of Siluria died 181. He married Gwladys (m. Llewfer Mawr).

         Llewfwer's line continues forward in interesting directions:

         His great grand daughter Helena Augusta Brittanica beget a line of Roman Emperors.

         His great-great grand daughter Frigg married Odin King of Ansgard, whose sons included several

         founders of dynasties throughout Europe.

37.     Gwladys (m. Llewfer Mawr).


Seventh Generation


64.     Finn was born about 130 in Asgard, Asia or East Europe. He was married was married about 152 in Asgard, Asia or Eastern Europe.


72.     Coel (Coilus) died after 120.


75.     Eurgen.



Eighth Generation


128.  Flocwald was born about 100 in Asgard, Asia or, East Europe.

         Flocwald is omitted in some lines.



144.  Cyllin King of Siluria.

         This is a different Cyllin than the King of Britons, although the time is about the same, and both had sons named Coel. Note also there is a Coel, King of      North Britain circa 400 A.D.


150.  Meurig (Marius) King of Britons was born in Briton. He died 125. Meurig married Victoria Ferch Prasutagus.

         Carlos Parada,  Author of  Genealogical Guide to Greek Mythology, has Meurig as Coel's of

         Briton's father. But Brian has Cyllin of Britain.

         Check BRITONS to find Coel and Cyllin. CHECK: there are two different pairs of Cyllin / Coel

         linked to each other!

         Both of these sources list Althidis as Meurig's daughter.

         Coel was the earliest Briton I had on file for a long time, until finding the information from Carlos:

         Throne Succession: From Troy to Rome

         Another issue here: Coel is identified as Gaodhal, King of Gaul by O'Hara. Dubious connection:

         see also Gaodhal, King of Gaul who descended from Frankish line in my gedcom. Note also

         the time difference.

151.  Victoria Ferch Prasutagus.



Ninth Generation


256.  Godwulf was born about 0080 in Asgard, Asia or, East Europe.


288.  Caradoc (Caractacus) King of Siluria was born abt 80 AD in Trevan, Llanilid, Glamorganshire Wales. He died Siluria (Monmouthshire).


         King Caradoc's birth-book (pedigree register) records his own as well as others' descent from

         illustrious ancestors, through thirty-six generations from Aedd Mawr.


300.  Gweirydd (Avirgus) King of Briton died 0074. He married Genissa

301.  Genissa.


302.  Prasutagus married Boadicea (Boudicca) Queen of Iceni.

303.  Boadicea (Boudicca) Queen of Iceni died 0062.



Tenth Generation


512.  Jat (Geata). (generations condensed in Note)

         From Geata back in time are probably Norse "gods" as described in the Prose Edda of Iceland, possibly with some thread of reality. It was a customary belief in the Middle Ages, evident from the sagas of the Kings of Norway that the ancient gods, especially Thor and Oden, really existed.


         These are the ancestors of Geata, back to Thor: Taetwa, Biaf (Bjar), Skjaldun (Skjold), Heremod, Itrmann, Athra (Annar), Bedvig, Seskef (Sceaf),


         NOTE from Luke Stevens: Seskef (Sceaf) evidently confused with Shem, in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicles, which make him a son of NOAH and say that he, or his son Bedvig, was born on the Ark! Trojan says he ruled Denmark until 999 B.C. Other sources call him either Woden the Odin of the North who ruled Asgard 70-55 B.C. In any case, the pedigree is deficient by several generations.

         Compare also the truly Bizarre British Edda.


         NOTE from Brian Tompsett: The Anglo Saxon Chronicles shows Bedwig as a Grandson of the biblical Noah at this point, whearas the Prose Edda shows the lineage from Thor to Odin.


         Geata's ancestors, continued: Magi, Modi, Vingener, Vingethor, Einridi, Loridi, Thor King of Thrace.


576.  Bran Fendigaid King of Siluria was born about 0020 BC. He died Aft 0036 AD. Bran married Enygeus (Latin var: Anna).


         Often credited with bringing Christianity to the British Isles. He may be the same person as

         Bron or Brons of Arturian legend, who was given the Holy Grail by Joseph of Arimathea.



         First King of the Silures. m. Anna of Arimathea c. AD 1. The legends of Bron, 'The Rich Fisher,'

         and Bran, 'The Blessed,' correspond in more ways than can be allowed for by coincidence. A

         long list of the most eminent Arthurian scholars including Heinrich, Martin, Nutt, Rhys, Brown,

         Nitze and Loomis all agree in regarding 'Bran Fendigaid' as the Celtic prototype of 'Bron' - the

         Rich Fisher or Fisher king.


         In Celtic myth, Bran is a great warrior god. He had a magic cauldron that could bring fallen

         warriors back to life --- the Grail?? Further, Bron of Arthurian legend was allegedly the son-in-

         law of Joseph of Arimathea, having married Joseph's daughter Enygeus ( a Latin form of Anna!)

         Bran is approximately the same age as Anna, daughter of Joseph of for

         thought at least! Beli Mawr is also oft-noted as husband of Anna, daughter of Joseph. But the

         dates are way out of whack!



         Bran, King of Siluria, also commander of the British fleet. In the year A.D. 36 (should that be

         0136?) he resigned the crown to his son Caradoc and became Arch-Druid of the college of

         Siluria, where he remained some years until called upon to be a hostage for his son. During his

         seven years in Rome he became the first royal convert to Christianity, and was baptized by the

         Apostle Paul, as was his son Caradoc and the latter's two sons, Cyllinus and Cynon.

         Henceforth he was known as Bran the Blessed Sovereign. "He was the first to bring the faith of

         Christ to the Cymry." His recorded proverb is: "There is no good apart from God." He

         introduced the use of vellum into Britain.


         (the following is from Jim Fina )

         A comment or two on the portion of this line under: "Line of Beli Mawr, King of Britain."

         First, Beli Mawr died in 0072 BC. Unless he lived to be an extraordinary age, he would appear

         to be far to old to have married Anna, daughter of Joseph of Arimathea. David Nash Ford has

         him born in 110 BC. Apparently he died before Joseph of Arimathea was even born. Two

         sources, "The Forgotten Monarchy of Scotland," by Prince Michael of Albany, and "Bloodline of

         the Holy Grail, The Hidden Lineage of Jesus Revealed" by Lawrence Gardiner, both have Anna,

          Daughter of Joseph of Arimathea, married to Brian "the Blessed," the great-grandson of Beli

         Mawr. Another source, Didot Perceval (The Romance of Perceval in Prose, translated by Dell

         Skeels, University of Washington Press, 1966), agrees. Even at that, Brian would have been

         considerably older than Anna.


         At any rate, the traditional coupling of Anna and Beli seems to highly implausible since they

         lived in different centuries. You have still another clue in the same line, "Gweirydd, (Arviragus)

         King of Britain," the same Arviragus who gave Joseph of Arimathea the 12 hides of land at

         Glastonbury, he's a 2nd great grandson of Beli Mawr (and as such, hardly a contemporary).

         Arviragus is listed as the King of Saluria by Gardiner and Prince Michael, and according to

         Gardner died in 74 AD. So he would have been a contemporary of Joseph of Arimathea who

         died in 82 AD. I've also seen Arviragus listed as Pendragon as well, so he may have been both.

         I don't mean to throw a fly in the ointment, but I thought I'd point out the timeline problem.”


577.  Enygeus (Latin var: Anna).


600.  Cynfelyn (Cunobelinus).


606.  Mandubratius.



Eleventh Generation


1024.    Thor King of Thrace married Sibyl (Sif).

         The following is from the Prose Edda:


         Near the centre of the world where what we call Turkey lies, was built the most famous of all palaces and halls - Troy by name. That town was built on a much larger scale than others then in existence and in many ways with greater skill, so lavishly was it equipped.


         There were twelve kingdoms with one over-king, and each kingdom contained many peoples. In the citadel were twelve chieftains and these excelled other men then living in every human fashion.


         One of the kings was called Múnón or Mennón. He married a daughter of the chief king Priam who was called Tróáin, and they had a son named Trór - we call him Thór. He was brought up in Thrace by a duke called Loricus and, when he was ten years old, he received his father's arms.


         When he took his place amongst other men he was as beautiful to look at as ivory inlaid in oak; his hair was lovelier than gold. At twelve years old he had come to his full strength and then he lifted ten bear pelts from the ground at once and killed his foster father Loricus with his wife Lóri or Glóri, and took possession of the realm of Thrace - we call that Thrúðheim.


         After that he travelled far and wide exploring all the regions of the world and by himself overcoming all the berserks and giants and an enormous dragon and many wild beasts.


         The Prose Edda lists several generations of descendents of Thor, with little of historical or tangible significance. These names are condensed in this file. See note for Jat (Geata) for these names.


1025.    Sibyl (Sif).


1152.    Llyr Llediaith (King Lear) was born abt 20 AD. He married Penarddun.


1153.    Penarddun.


         The following is by Teresa Williams,  (this wreaks havoc upon the thought that Bran Fendigaid married Anna, DAUGHTER of Joseph of Arimathea)

         A manuscript, held at Jesus College, shows the family tree of Joseph of Arimathea and gives

         confirmation that Penardin, granddaughter of Joseph of Arimathea married King Lear of Britain.

         Notice that far from being confined to Palestine, the Holy Family seem, through Joseph of

         Arimathea, to have intermarried into British royalty and to have left Palestine to live in Britain.


1200.    Tenuantius (Theomantius) King of Briton died 26 B.C.


1212.    Llud Llaw Erient "The Silver Haired" ap Beli King of Britons was born 0080 B.C. He died 18 B.C.



Twelfth Generation


2048.    Memnon, King of Ethiopia died 1183 B. C. He married Troan of Troy.


         Brazen-crested Memnon, a comely man according to Odysseus, is the King of the Ethiopians who came with a great force to help Troy against the Achaean invaders, and was killed by Achilles.


         But Memnon himself was, as Tithonus 1, related to the East, and he is said to have built a palace of many colored and shining white stones bound with gold in the city of Ecbatana. For Memnon, starting from Ethiopia, overrun Egypt and conquered the East as far as the city of Susa, which he surrounded by walls.


         So Memnon, although being king of the Ethiopians, came to Troy, not from what today is called Africa, but from Susa, not far away from the river Tigris, in what later became Persia. And when he made his march to the west, he subdued all the peoples that lived between Susa and Troy.


         When Hector 1, who was the pillar of Troy, was killed by Achilles, there was not much hope left for the Trojans, except that it was then that Memnon, wearing an armour made by Hephaestus, arrived from the east with a huge host to help the city.


         Memnon is said to have killed the Pylians Ereuthus and Pheron, who followed Nestor to the Trojan War, and also Nestor's son Archilochus, who died for his father's sake. For the horse kept Nestor's chariot from moving, since it had been wounded by Paris, when Memnon approached. Then Nestor shouted to his son Archilochus and he, coming to his rescue, saved his father's life at the price of his own. For, as some say, Memnon slew him, although there are those who say that Archilochus was killed by Hector 1.


         Nestor, who saw his son perish, asked Achilles to rescue his son's body and armour. That is why Memnon and Achilles fought against each other in single combat, and although Memnon wounded Achilles in the arm, he himself lost his life when Achilles plunged his sword beneath his breast-bone. But some say that it was Achilles' spear that killed Memnon.


         In any case some have told that when Memnon died, the whole Ethiopian army vanished with his king, the soldiers turning into birds.


         Now, some may feel tempted to reason that this is just a way of expressing the idea of the Ethiopian army escaping or being disbanded. And they may also feel that if the army was dispersed it would be better just to say so instead of making up capricious tales, which are most implausible. But, whatever they may feel, the Achaeans and Trojans were most amazed when they watched the Ethiopian army fly away. For current things amaze nobody, but    extraordinary and impossible things do. And that was a great marvel, unlikely to happen in our time, as no one has ever since claimed to have witnessed anything of the sort.

         (this note is from Carlos Parada. For original: )


2049.    Troan of Troy.


2304.    Baran.


2306.    Beli Mawr (Heli) King of Briton was born acc abt 110 BC in Briton. He died abt 72 B.C. Beli married Don (Anna, Anu) Ferch Mathonwy.

         Beli Mawr is claimed as the founder of the Deisi, later rulers of the kingdom of Dyfed. His

         daughter marries Llyr Lleddiarth (King Lear), who is claimed as the founder of Gwent.

         Geoffrey of Monmouth in his History of the Kings of Britain, attempted to list all of the kings of

         Britain reigning between the arrival of Brutus and the Britons (a possible, archaeology-

         supported, early influx of Continental Celts) in c.1100 BC up to AD 689 and the end of

         Gwynedd's attempts to regain the land lost to the Anglo-Saxons. Nominal rulers of the British

         Celtic tribes (starting initially in the south and east of Britain and working northwards), they

         were probably rulers of their own tribal groups and held at least theoretical over-kingship over

         the rest. They usually only exercised real authority in this role in times of emergency, such as

         at the landings of Julius Caesar in 55 and 54 BC.

         Pre-Roman, heroic age Celtic kingdoms almost always formed the basis of the ancestral

         heritage of later Post-Roman Celtic kings. Although largely legendary until elements of the

         Roman and Post-Roman periods, considering the importance that the Celtic warrior class

         placed on lineage, added to the tradition of being able to recite one's ancestors, these names

         may well reflect an element of truth. But, because the Pre-Roman Celts left no written records,

         and the Post-Roman Britons probably lost a large amount of whatever records they possessed

         after the Adventus Saxonum, very little of this can ever be proved.


2307.    Don (Anna, Anu) Ferch Mathonwy.

         The wife of many aliases. First story is that Beli Mawr married Anna, the daughter of Joseph of

         Arimathea, who took down Christ's body from the cross and gave up his tomb for Christ's body.

         But the dates don't make sense!

         Celtic mythology names the wife of Beli Mawr "ANU", a great Celtic mother-goddess

         associated with the founding and prosperity of Ireland, the mother of all Celt gods.

         Last, considering this naming, patromymics tell us that she is the daughter of someone named



         But see Beli Mawr's grandson Bran Fendigaid for the Rest of the Story on the Arimathea/Grail/

         Anna Connection....


13. Generation


4096.    Tithonus married Eos (Dawn).


         Tithonus 1, they say, was snatched away by Eos (Dawn) for love, and brought to that Ethiopia which is not in Africa but in the east, and there he founded the city of Susa. Tithonus 1 was made immortal after Eos asked Zeus that Tithonus 1 should be deathless and live eternally. However she forgot to ask youth for him and for that reason he suffers the full weight of Old Age, babbling endlessly and having no strength in his limbs. But before that Tithonus 1 and Eos lived rapturously as lovers do, and they had children: Emathion 1 and Memnon.

         (this note is from Carlos Parada. For original: )


4097.    Eos (Dawn).

         Anyway the death of this magnificent king (son Memnon) caused great grief to his mother, and because of her pain the colours of the morning skies grew dull and the heavens were overcast with clouds. And Eos came to Zeus and asked him to grant Memnon special honours as consolation for his death.


         Accordingly the smoke of Memnon's funeral pyre turn into birds, some of which killed each other over the flames. These birds, which are called Memnonides, used to return on stated days every year to Memnon's grave, in a hill above the outlet of the Aesepus River, which flows from the mountains of Ida in the Troad, and sprinkle it with the water of the river from their wet wings. But others say that Memnon was buried in Paltus, which is on the coast of Syria in front of the island of Cyprus.


         The Tears of Dawn

         Eos herself never ceased to lament the death of her handsome son who was also a magnificent king. For the dew, they say, is the tears shed by the goddess for the death of Memnon. And yet it has also been told that Zeus bestowed immortality upon Memnon at Eos' request.

         (this note is from Carlos Parada. For original: )


4098.    Priam (Podarces) King of Troy was born in See Note for many other children. He died 1183 B.C. Priam married Hecuba.


         First war against Troy.

         For this reason Heracles 1 made war on Troy one generation before the well known Trojan War.

         This attack on Troy Heracles 1 did in conjunction with Telamon, father of Ajax 1, among others.

         For this expedition Heracles 1 deployed eighteen ships with fifty oars each, that is an insignificant fleet compared with the one which sailed against Troy one generation after [see ACHAEAN LEADERS for details about this fleet]. After some fight the town was besieged and shortly after Telamon, who was the first to breach in the wall, entered the city and after him came Heracles 1. Heracles 1 killed King Laomedon 1 and his sons except for young Priam 1, who became then king of Troy. The king's daughter Hesione 2 was given to Telamon as a prize. Hesione 2 is mother then of Teucer 1, called Telamon's bastard son, who became leader of the Salaminians against Troy one generation after.


         Second war against Troy.

8192.    Laomedon King of Troy died 1235 B.C. He married Strymo "Placia".


         Tricky Laomedon 1.

         According to some Ilus 2's wife was Eurydice 6, and according to others Leucippe 5. By either of them Ilus 2 had a son Laomedon 1, who became king of Troy after him. When Laomedon 1 was king of Troy Apollo and Poseidon decided to put him to the test and, assuming the likeness of mortal men, undertook to fortify Troy for wages. But when the work was done, King Laomedon 1 would not pay their wages. So Apollo sent a pestilence, and Poseidon sent a sea-monster, which snatched away the people of the plain. The oracles foretold deliverance from these calamities if King Laomedon 1 would expose his daughter Hesione 2 to be devoured by the sea-monster. So he, more obedient of this oracle than of his agreement with the gods, exposed Hesione 2 to the monster by fastening her to the rocks near the sea. When Heracles 1 saw her exposed, he promised to save her on condition of receiving from Laomedon 1 the mares which Zeus had given in compensation for the rape of Ganymedes. Once again Laomedon 1 promised to pay for the service and Heracles 1 killed the monster and saved Hesione 2. But when this was done Laomedon 1 would not give the agreed reward.

16384.              Ilus king of Troy died 1279 B.C.


         The founder of Troy.

         At this point Ilus 2, son of Tros 1, founded the city of Ilium (Troy) that he called after himself. Ilus 2 went to Phrygia, and taking part in games that at the time were held by the king, he won victory in wrestling. As a prize he received fifty youths and as many maidens, and the king, obeying an oracle, gave him also a cow and asked him to found a city wherever the cow should lie down. This took place when the cow came to the hill of Ate, and in that spotIlus 2 built the city which he called Ilium. Then he prayed to Zeus that a sign might be shown to him and he saw the Palladium, fallen from heaven and lying before his tent. Ilus 2 was blinded, for the Palladium might not be looked upon by any man. But later, when he had made offerings to the goddess, he recovered his sight [read the story of the Palladium at Trojan War].

         Erichthonius 1 and Tros 1.


         When Dardanus 1 died, his son Erichthonius 1 became King of the Dardanians and, as they say, the richest of men, as he inherited both the kingdom of his father and that of his maternal grandfather. Erichthonius 1 married Astyoche 3, daughter of the River God Simois, or as others say, Callirrhoe 3, a sister of Teucer 2. By one of them he had a son Tros 1 who, after coming to the throne, called the people Trojans and the land Troad after himself. According to some it was Tros 1 who married Callirrhoe 3, but some say he married Acallaris, daughter of Eumedes 6.

18. Generation


131072.             Darda (Dardanus) King of Dardania died 1414 B.C.


         NOTE from Luke: his ancestry is disputed. He is probably the biblical Darda. This line is ultimately derived from Homer's Illiad, which calls Dardanus a son of the pagan god Zeus, son of Cronus.


         (more...Craig's note) Greek mythology identifies Dardanus as the son of Zeus. But he has biblical (mortal) ancestry as well. I have made the biblical father of Dardanus (Zerah) the "biological father". Dardanus is also listed here as the "adoptive son" of Zeus.

         (the two notes that follow are from Carlos Parada. For originals:


         Emigration of Dardanus 1:


         Dardanus 1, son of Zeus and the Pleiad Electra 3 lived in Samothrace, but when his brother Iasion [see Demeter], who was among the most handsome, was killed by Zeus with a thunderbolt, as some say, because of his love affair with Demeter, he left the island and coming to the opposite mainland he settled in the territory, which at the time was ruled by Teucer 2.

         Some say that this emigration took place because life in Samothrace, with its poor soil and boisterous sea, was hard for Dardanus 1 and his people. So sailing from the island he came to the strait called the Hellespont, and settled in the region which afterwards was called Phrygia.


         Family of Dardanus 1.


         According to some Batia 1 was Dardanus 1's second wife, whom he married after the death of his first wife Chryse 3. His sons by her were Idaeus 4 and Deimas. The latter stayed in Arcadia, whence they come from (as it is said that Atlas was king of Arcadia), but Idaeus 4 emigrated with Dardanus 1, first to Samothrace and later to Phrygia, where Mount Ida was called after him
