The Frankish King Dagobert II, and the Merovingian dynasty from which he came, have been romantically mythologized in the annals of both local legend and modern mystical pseudo-history, but few have understood the true meaning and origins of their alluring mystery.

 

The mystique that surrounds them includes attributions of saintliness, magical powers (derived from their long hair), and even divine origin, because of their supposed descent from the one and only Jesus Christ. However, the importance of the divine ancestry of the Merovingians, and the antiquity from whence it comes, has never to this author’s knowledge been fully explored by any writer or historian.

 

However, I have uncovered mountains of evidence which indicates that the origins of the Merovingian race, and the mystery that surrounds them, lies ultimately with a race of beings, “Nephilim” or fallen angels, who created mankind as we know it today.

 

It also originated with a civilization, far more ancient than recorded history, from which came all of the major arts and sciences that are basic to civilizations everywhere.

 

As I intend to show, all of the myths and symbolism that are associated with this dynasty can, in fact, be traced back to this earlier civilization. It is known, in some cultures, as Atlantis, although there are many names for it, and it is the birthplace of agriculture, astronomy, mathematics, metallurgy, navigation, architecture, language, writing, and religion. It was also the source of the first government on Earth – monarchy. And the first kings on Earth were the gods.

Their race was known by various names. In Assyria, the Annodoti. In Sumeria, the Anunnaki.

 

In Druidic lore, the Tuatha de Danaan. In Judeo-Christian scriptures, they are called the Nephilim, “the Sons of God”, or the Watchers. They are described as having attachments such as wings, horns, and even fish scales, but from the depictions it is clear that these are costumes worn for their symbolic value, for these symbols indicated divine power and royal blood.

 

The gods themselves had their own monarchy, with laws of succession similar to our own, and they built a global empire upon the Earth, with great cities, temples, monuments, and mighty nations established on several continents. Man was separate from the gods, like a domesticated animal, and there was a great cultural taboo amongst the gods against sharing any of their sacred information with humanity, even things such as writing and mathematics. These gods ruled directly over Egypt, Mesopotamia, and the Indus Valley, and their rule is recorded in the histories of all three civilizations.

This global monarchy was the crowning glory of the ages, and the period of their rule came to be called “the Golden Age”, or as the Egyptians called it, “the First Time”, when the gods watched over man directly, like a shepherd does his flock. In fact, they were often called “the Shepherd Kings.”

 

One of the symbols of this world monarchy was an eye hovering over a throne, and this eye now adorns our American dollar bill, presented as the missing capstone of the Great Pyramid of Giza, underneath which are written the words “New World Order.”

 

Clearly this New World Order is the global monarchy that or Founding Fathers (not a Democrat among them) intended for this nation to participate in all along, symbolized by a pyramid as a representation of the ideal and perfectly ordered authoritarian empire.

 

During the Golden Age of the gods, a new king’s ascendance to the global throne would be celebrated by the sacrifice of a horse, an animal sacred to Poseidon, one of the Atlantean god-kings and Lord of the Seas.(1) In fact there is an amusing story about how King Sargon’s rebellious son Sagara tried to prevent his father’s assumption to the world throne from being solidified by stealing his sacrificial horse. The horse was not recovered until years later, and Sagara, along with the “sons of Sagara”, i.e., those members of his family who had assisted him, were forced to dig their own mass grave. This grave was oddly called “the Ocean.”

It was a rebellion such as this that led to the downfall of the entire glorious empire. At some point, it is told, some of the gods broke rank. This is again recorded in just about every culture on Earth that has a written history or oral tradition. Some of the gods, finding human females most appealing, intermarried with them, breaking a major taboo within their own culture, and creating a race of human/god hybrids. Some of these offspring are described as taking the form of giants, dragons, and sea monsters, while others are said to have borne a normal human countenance, with the exception of their shimmering white skin and their extremely long life spans.

 

This is the bloodline that brought us Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, King David, Jesus Christ, and many others – in other words, the “Grail bloodline.” Legend has it that these beings taught mankind their secrets, including the above-mentioned arts of civilization, as well as a secret spiritual doctrine that only certain elect humans (their blood descendants) would be allowed to possess.

 

They created ritualistic mystery schools and secret societies to pass this doctrine down through the generations.

However, these actions (the interbreeding with and sharing of secrets with humans) incurred the wrath of the Most High God, and a number of other gods who were disgusted by this interracial breeding. This sparked the massive and devastating battle of the gods that has come down to us in the legend of the “war in Heaven.” Then, in order to cleanse the Earth’s surface of the curse of humanity, they covered it with a flood. Interestingly, this flood is mentioned in the legends of almost every ancient culture on Earth, and the cause is always the same.

 

Often the waters are described as having come from inside the Earth.

“The Fountains of the deep were opened”, it is said. “Suddenly enormous volumes of water issued from the Earth.” Water was “projected from the mountain like a water spout.”

The Earth began to rumble, and Atlantis, fair nation of the gods, sunk beneath the salty green waves.

 

As we shall see, this is analogous to part of the “war in Heaven” story when the “rebellious” angels or gods were punished by being cast down “into the bowels of the Earth” – a very significant location.

To be certain, some of the Atlanteans managed to survive, and many books have been written about the Atlantean origin of the Egyptian, Sumerian, Indo-Aryan, and native South American civilizations (bringing into question the validity of the term “Native American”).

 

Little, however, has been written about those who escaped into Western Europe, except for a passing reference in Ignatius Donnelly’s Atlantis: The Antediluvian World, in which he writes:

“The Gauls [meaning the French] possessed traditions upon the subject of Atlantis which were collected by the Roman historian Timagenes, who lived in the first century before Christ. He represents that three distinct people dwelt in Gaul:

1. the indigenous population, which I suppose to be Mongoloids, who had long dwelt in Europe

2. the invaders from a distant land, which I understand to be Atlantis

3. the Aryan Gaul”

That the Merovingian bloodline came from elsewhere is clear because of the legend that surrounds their founder, King Meroveus, who is said to have been the spawn of a “Quinotaur” (a sea monster), who raped his mother when she went out to swim in the ocean.

 

Now it becomes obvious why he is called “Meroveus”, because in French, the word “mer” means sea. And in some traditions, Atlantis was called Meru, or Maru.(2) For these gods, navigation above all was important to them, for it was their sea power that maintained their military might and their successful mercantile trade.(3)

 

The Atlanteans were associated with the sea and were often depicted as mermen, or sea monsters, with scales, fins, and horns. They were variously associated with a number of important animals, whose symbolism they held sacred: horses, bulls, goats, rams, lions, fish, serpents, dragons, even cats and dogs. All of these things relate back to the sea imagery with which these gods were associated.

Now lets go back to the Quinotaur, which some have named as being synonymous with Poseidon, the Greek god of the sea and, according to Plato, one of the famous kings of Atlantis.

 

Others have seen it as being emblematic of the fish symbol that Christ is associated with, thus indicating that he was in fact the origin of the Merovingian bloodline. However, the roots of this Quinotaur myth are far more ancient. The word itself can be broken down etymologically to reveal its meaning. The last syllable, “taur”, means “bull.”

 

The first syllable “Quin”, or “Kin”, comes from the same root as “king”, as well as the Biblical name of Cain, whom many have named as the primordial father of the Grail family.(4) The idea of the “King of the World” taking the form of a sea-bull was a recurring them in many ancient cultures, most notably in ancient Mesopotamia. In fact it originated with that dynasty of kings who reigned over the antediluvian world and who were all associated with the sea, as well as this divine animal imagery.

 

These kings included Sargon, Menes, and Narmar. Their historical reality morphed into the legends we have in many cultures of gods said to have come out of the sea at various times and to teach mankind the basic arts of civilization. They were known by various names, such as Enki, Dagon, Oannes, or Marduk (Merodach).

 

They were depicted as half-man and half-fish, half-goat and half-fish, or half-bull and half-fish, but as I have said, in many of these depictions it is clear that this affect was achieved merely by the wearing of costumes, and that these god-kings were using this archetypal imagery to deify themselves in the minds of their subjects.

Dagon was depicted with a fish on his head, the lips protruding upward, making what were referred to as “horns.” This may be the origin for the custom (common in the ancient world) of affixing horns to the crown of a king. It has also been historically acknowledged as the origin of the miter worn by the Catholic Pope.(5) The Christian Church has always been associated with fish.

 

Christ himself took on that imagery, as did John the Baptist, and the early Christians used the fish sign of the “Ichthys” to designate themselves. From the name “Oannes” we get the words “Uranus” and “Ouranos”, but also supposedly “Jonah”, “Janus”, and “John.” Perhaps we finally now understand why the Grand Masters of the Priory of Sion assume the symbolic name of “John” upon taking office.

The syllable “dag” merely means “fish”, which makes it interesting to note that the Dogon tribe of Africa, who have long baffled astronomers with their advanced knowledge of the faraway star-system from which they say their gods came, claim that these gods were “fish-men.” We may wonder if the words “dag” and “dog” are not etymologically related, especially since the star from whence these fish-men supposedly came is named Sirius, “the Dog Star.”

 

From Dagon comes our word “dragon”, as well as the biblical figure of Leviathan, “the Lord of the Deep”, a title also applied to Dagon.

 

In fact, many of these Atlantean god-kings received the titles “the Lord of the Waters”, “The Lord of the Deep”, or “the Lord of the Abyss”, which appear to have been passed down from father to son, along with the throne of the global kingdom.

 

These kings were specifically associated with the Flood of Noah, which, as I have mentioned, destroyed their global kingdom, and was somehow linked to their disastrous breeding experiment with the human race that lead to the “Grail bloodline.”

 

For this they were consigned to the “Abyss” or the underworld, which is why these gods were known as the lords of both.

In addition, Enki was known as the “Lord of the Earth”, and it is because of this “amphibious” nature of their progenitor, who reigned over both land and sea, that the Merovingians are associated with frogs. But this “Lord of the Earth” title is significant, for this is a title also given to Satan. It has been acknowledged elsewhere that Enki, as the “fish-goat man”, is the prototype for the Zodiac sign of Capricorn, which is itself recognized as the prototype for the modern conception of Satan or Lucifer.

 

Furthermore, a well-known and pivotal episode in Enki’s career was his fight against his brother Enlil over the succession of the global throne. Enki eventually slew Enlil, something that is recorded in the Egyptian myth of Set murdering Osiris, and perhaps in the Biblical story of Cain murdering Abel.

 

The connection between Enki and Enlil and Cain and Abel can be further proven by the fact that Enki and Enlil were the son of Anu (in some Sumerian legends, the first god-king on Earth), whereas Cain and Abel were the sons of the first man, called “Adamu” in Sumerian legends. “Adamu” and “Anu” appear to be etymologically related.

This family feud erupted into a long and overdrawn battle between the gods, who were split into two factions over the issue. These appear to be the same two factions who were at odds over the mating of gods and men to create the Grail bloodline. Those who supported Enki/Satan and Cain were clearly the ones who were inclined to breed with mankind, perhaps in an attempt to create a hybrid race that could assist them in retaining the throne for Cain.

 

But they were overpowered. After they lost the “war in Heaven”, they were cast into the Abyss (according to legend, now the realm of Satan), and the Earth was flooded so as to rid it of their offspring.

Yet according to the legends, those gods who had created the hybrid race contacted one of their most favored descendants (called Uta-Napishtim in the Sumerian legends, or Noah in the Jewish), helping him to rescue himself and his family, preserving the seed of hybrid humanity.(6)

 

We see remnants of this in the Vedic legends of the Flood, in which the Noah figure, here called “Manu”, is warned about the Flood by a horned fish (who turns out to be the Hindu god Vishnu in disguise). The fish tells Manu to build a ship, and then tie its tip to his horn. He then proceeds to tow Manu’s ship to safety upon a high mountain.

 

So clearly Vishnu is connected to Enki, Dagon, and Oannes, and clearly he is the same one who saved Noah from the Flood. Yet this very deed became attributed, in the Old Testament, to the same god, Jehovah, who had purportedly caused the Flood to begin with. In fact the word Jehovah, or “Jah” is said to have evolved from the name of another Sumerian sea god-king, Ea, “the Lord of the Flood.”
