AENEAS King of LATIUM who died about 1175 B.C. In 1240 B.C. Troy VII destroyed by the Greeks after a long siege... Aeneas escapes from Troy, with his son Ascanius, and eventually becomes King of Italy.This After the Trojan war, Aeneas fled from the ruined city with his son Escanius and came by boat to Italy. He was honorably received by King Latinus, but Turnus, King of the Rutuli, became jealous of him and attacked him. In the battle between them Aeneas was victorious. Turnus was killed and Aeneas seized both the kingdom of Italy and the person of Lavinia, who was the daughter of Latinus. He married CREUSA of Troy and had:

IULUS ASCANIUS , King of Alba Longa who died about 1137 B.C. was the founder of Alba Longa (Latium on the western shore of Lago di Albano), the city near which Rome was founded in 753 BC. Ascanius was the progenitor of the Julian gens, to which family Caius Julius Caesar (100-44 BC) belonged. When Aeneas' last day came, Ascanius was elected King. He founded the touwn of Alba on the bank of the Tiber. He married UNKNOWN and had:

SILVIUS (Selys Hen) APIULUS Prince Alba Longa married UNKNOWN. He was involved in a secret love-affair with a certain niece of Lavinia's; he married here and made her pregnant. When this came to the knowledge of his father Ascanius, the latter ordered his soothsayers to discover the sex of the child which the girl had conceived. As soon as they had made sure of the truth of the matter, the soothsayers said that she would give birth to a boy, who would cause the death of both his father and his mother; and that after he had wandered in exile through many lands this boy would eventually rise to the highest honour. The soothsayers were not wrong in their forecast. When the day came for her to have her child, the mother bore a son and died in childbirth. The boy was handed over to the midwife and was given the name Brutus. At last, when fifteen years had passed, the young man killed his father by an unlucky shot with an arrow, when they were out hunting together. Their beaters drove some stags into their path and Brutus, who was under the impression that he was aiming his weapon at these stags, hit his own father below the breast. As the result of this death Brutus was expelled from Italy by his relations, who were angry with him for having committed such a crime. He went in exile to certain parts of Greece; and there he discovered the Descendants of Helenus, Priam's son, who were held captive in the power of Pandrasus, King of the Greeks. After the fall of Troy, Pyrrhus, the son of Achilles, had dragged this man Helenus off with him in chains, and a number of other Trojans, too. He had ordered them to be kept in slavery, so that he might take vengenance on them for the death of his father. When Brutus realized that these people were of the same race as his ancestors, he stayed some time with them. Silnius and UNKNOWN are the parents of:

BRUTUS (Brwt) APSYLVIUS , King In Britain who died about 1091 B.C. He married UNKNOWN and was the first King of Britain who ruled for 23 years. He leads his people out of Greece and settles on the island of Britain (in those days called Albion), where he becomes its first king, roughtly 1100 years before the birth of Christ. When a young man he makes a journey westwards and wandered forty-two years in Africa, and arrived, with his family, at the altars of the Philistines, by the Lake of Osiers. Then passing between Rusicada and the hilly country of Syria, they travelled by the River Malva through Mauretain as far as the Pillars of Hercules..) The exploits of Brutus continue: After many encounters and victories over the Greeks, Brutus ploughed through the waves in a crossing which lasted thirty days arriving in Africa, still not knowing in which direction they should steer their ships. Then came to the Altars of the Philistines and to the Salt-pan Lake, and from there they sailed on between Russicada and the mountains of Zarec. In this spot they suffered great danger from an attack by pirates, but they beat it off and became the richer by booty and plunder. After this they passed the River Malve and landed in Mauretania. There they were harassed by lack of food and drink; they therefore disembarked from their ships, split up into groups and ravaged the country from end to end. \line\tab Once they re-victualled they sailed for the Pillars of Hercules, and there those deep-sea monsters called the Sirens made their appearance and nearly sank their ships as they moved forward. They escaped, however, and came upon four generations born to exiles from Troy, generations which had accompanied Antenor in his flight. Their leader was called Corineus. Corineus and Brutus did battle with the Kings and Princes of Gaul. After defeating King Goffar and his Poitevins, as well as kings and princes of Gaul, Brutus was nevertheless filled with anxiety, for the number of his men became smaller every day, while that of the Gauls was constantly increasing. Brutus was in doubt as to whether he could oppose the Gauls any longer; and he finally chose to return to his ships in the full glory of his victory while the greater part of his comrades were still safe, and then to seek out the island which divine prophecy had promised would be his. \line So, with the winds behind him, he sought the promised island, and came ashore at Totnes. At the time the island of Britain was called Albion. It was uninhabited except for a few giants. Brutus called the island Britain from his own name, and his companions he called Britons. His intention was that his memory should be perpetuated by the derivation of the name. A little later the language of the people, which had up to then been known as Trojan or Crooked Greek, was called British, for the same reason. Corineus, however, following in this the example of his leader, called the region of the kingdom which had fallen to his share Cornwall, after the manner of his own name, and the people who lived there he called Cornishmen.\line\tab When Brutus had built the city along the River Thames which he called "Troia Nova", he presented it to the citizens by right of inheritance, and gave them a code of laws by which they might live peacefully together. At that time the priest Eli was ruling in Judea and the Ark of the Covenant was captured by the Philistines. The sons of Hector reigned in Troy, for the descendants of Antenor had been driven out. In Italy reigned Aenes Silvius, son of Aeneas and uncle of Brutus, the third of the Latin Kings. Brutus and Unknown are the parents of:

CAMBER (Cymryw) AP BRUTUS , King Cambria & Cornwall. After the death of his father the kingdom was divided between he and his two brothers Locrinus and Albanactus (He took the region that is now called Scotland). Camber received the region which is on the further bank of the River Severn, the part which is now known as Wales but which was for a long time after his death called Kambria from his name. As a result the people of country still call themselves Kambri today in the Welsh tongue. Camber Duke of Cambria and Cornwall, whence Cambria. Eventually, when these three had reigned in peace and harmony for a long time, Humber, the King of the Huns, landed in Albany. He met Albanactus in battle, killed him and forced the people of his country to flee to Locrinus. As soon as Locrinus heard the news, he persuaded his brother Kamber to join him in an alliance. Locrinus called up all the young men of his country and went out to meet the King of the Huns somewhere near the river which is now called the Humber. When the two forces made contact, Locrinus forced Humber to flee. Humber retreated as far as the river and was then drowned beneath its waters, giving his name to the stream. Once he had gained victory, Locrinus distributed the spoils of the enemy among his allies, keeping back nothing for himself except the gold and silver which he found on board their ships.

Llud Llaw Eirint "Silver Haired" APBELI was born about 79 B.C. and died about 18 B.C. Legendary king of the British mentioned in Geoffrey of Monmouth's History. Lud is listed as the eldest son of Heli (or Beli), and the brother of the historically real Caswallon, which would place Lud's existence at about 60BC. Lud was that rare combination of warrior king and town planner. He rebuilt New Troy, or Trinovantum as it was then known, and renamed it KaerLud after him. This became Lud's Town or London. When he died he was buried by the city wall where Ludgate is named after him. There is a story of Lud in the Welsh tale "Lludd and Llefelys" collected in the Mabinogion, wherein Lud consults his brother Llefelys on how to combat three supernatural plagues that are smiting Britain. He succeeds in defeating the source of the plagues and rules peacefully thereafter. This tale, like that of Merlin's, to which it is closely related, may be about a real British prince who ruled later than Geoffrey's Lud, possible in the first or second centruy AD. He has become remembered in Welsh legend as the Celtic god Llud, also known as Nudd, the Celtic form of Nodens. A temple to Nodens was built at Lydney in Gloucestershire, where there are other places starting with Lyd-, and which may have some relation to a local prince who assumed the name Lud.Called Nodens by the Romans, was the Celtic god of Healing. He had a large shrine at Lydney in Gloucesterhire, where the devoted made offerings of small bronze representations of their deseased limbs. He was sometimes identified with the protective Mars or the regenerative Silvanus and his companion and symbol was the dog: a deerhound whose lick could cure the afflicted. An old story explains his connection with amputees. At one time, Lludd was the leader of the gods, but he was wounded in battle and lost his hand. Gorfannon, the divine-smith, made him a new one out of Silver, but he was still forced to abdicate in favour of his nephew, Lleu Llaw Gyffes. Later, Lludd was troubled by a constant scream that was heard the eve of every Beltane. He traveled to Gaul, where his brother Llefelys, was particularly worshipped, to ask his advice. He explained that the cry was made by two fighting dragons. Lludd managed to capture the creatures and imprisoned them deep below Dinas Emrys. Lludd may have been particularly worshipped in London, which was said to have been named after him. Lludd married UNKNOWN and had:

AFALLACH APLLUDD He was one of the Celtic gods of the Underworld. He ruled Avalon where he lived with his daughter, Modron, and her nine sisters. Avalon was like the Celtic heaven, a peaceful island far away where apples grew and after which it became named.

Coel was first buried in a mound there before being removed to the church at Coylton. The year was about AD 420. After his death, Coel's Northern Kingdom was divided between two of his sons, Ceneu and Gorbanian. (Click link for more about King Cole) He married YSTRADWEL VERCHGADEON who was born 350 and had the following child:

SAINT CENEU AP COEL King of Northern Britain was born 404 and died 470. His Kingdom stretched from Coast to Coast. Ceneu appears to have been canonized because he upheld the old Christian ways while under intense pressure from invading pagans. High-King Vortigern's policy of employing Saxon mercenaries to defeat British enemies meant that, for most of his reign, Ceneu was obliged to accept the help of the Saxons, Octha and Ebissa, in pushing back invading Picts from his kingdom. Their interference was widely resented and it was not until after the Kentish rebellion that they were finally brought under control. Magnanimous in victory, Ceneu allowed the Saxons to settle in Deywr (Deira - East Yorkshire). Ceneu appears in Geoffrey of Monmouth'sHistory of the Kings of Britain as having attended the coronation of thegreat King Arthur. if so, he must have lived to an extreme old age. Upon his death, Ceneu's kingdom was divided between his two sons, Gwrast and Mor. Gwrast took the western lands stretching from the Salway to the Mersey, while Mor inherited the central kingdom around the old capital, Ebrauc (York). CENEU married UNKNOWN and had:
