Chapter 65: The Merovingians
The royal, matriarchal lineage of the Merovingians, as noted by Gardner, descended not coincidently from the Sicambriums through Queen Cambra. The Sicambriums were originally from the mysterious nation of Scythia, north of the Black Sea, 16 just as the Alains were from the Black Sea area. The Sicambriums were a Celtic/Teutonic/Aryan tribe that was also believed to have carried high concentrations of Israelite bloodlines stemming from wandering Benjamites. 17 These details mesh neatly with the Priory’s belief that a branch of the Merovingian dynasty originated with a lost tribe from Benjamin that first migrated to Greece and then Germany, becoming the people identified as the Sicambrium Franks, the people that later intermarried with a descendant of Mary Magdalene and Jesus. 18 The Sicambrium queen who married the descendant was Argotta of the Sicambriums; she married the Fisher King Faramond, who reigned from 419–430 C.E. 19
According to Keith Laidler, the Merovingians seem to have appeared royally mature before the Sicambrium Franks crossed the Rhine, because their legacy almost came about suddenly, fully formed, and widely accepted as royal; they were almost instantaneously exalted with a most mysterious pedigree. 20 No doubt this mysterious pedigree derived from all their diverse and alleged Messianic and royal bloodline s . At that time, there would not have been any kingships that held a competitive pedigree other than the Grail kingships of England.
As we have already noted, Faramund was the grandson of Boaz Anfortas, a direct descendant of Aminadbad, who was the son of Josue, son of Josephes, son of Jesus. It was Faramund and Argotta that begat Clodiu, who begat Meroveus, who begat Childeric, who begat Clovus, the founder of the official Merovingian dynasty. 21 This background lends itself harmoniously with the Merovingians’ belief they were descended from Jesus, as well as others holding royal pedigrees of the highest and most royal orders.
The Fisher Kings, the Merovingians, were a numinous dynasty mythologized to have possessed mystical power to communicate with animals, manipulate the weather, and heal the sick by the touching of hands, just as Jesus did. 22 They wore their hair very long, never cutting it, in the tradition of the scriptural Israeli Nazarites, 23 the most famous of whom was Samson, 24 who the Merovingians and Gnostics held in curiously high esteem. Laidler further notes that all of the Merovingians possessed a curious red, cross- shaped birthmark located either above the heart or between the shoulder blades, 25 representing their true heritage. Merovingians were sorcerer kings in the same spirit as King Solomon, with his judgment and wisdom, as well as his (alleged) prowess as a (Masonic) mystical magician in the Ring Lord tradition. 26 The Merovingian kings were extravagant polygamists after the spirit of the pharaohs, David, the Nephilim, Lamech, and of course, Solomon. 27
