Queen Teia Tephi: Ireland’s Israelite Queen
By Timothy Spearman
Ireland has an amazing history. The Irish kings, for instance, the Kings of Ulster, are said to descend from the Egyptian pharaohs, the Pharaoh Concubar in particular, who came to Ireland in antiquity to seek asylum from the Roman legions, who were hell bent on eliminating any threat to the ascendancy of the Roman emperor, especially those who ruled by the Divine Right of Kings as the Egyptian pharaohs were believed to have done. Egyptian ships did in fact reach Irish shores. Since it was beyond the reach of the Roman world, it was viewed as a place of asylum and safety to those who sought refuge. And since the Egyptian royals found their lives imperilled under Roman occupation, many of them sought solace on the Emerald Isle.
The Israelite Princess Teia Tephi, the daughter of King Zedekiah, was sent away during the days of the Babylonian invasion of the Holy Land to seek safety in the land long known to be inhabited by the Tuatha de Danaan, better known as the Tribe of Dan. Teia Tephi would go on to be an honoured Queen in her adopted land and would even marry in to the royal family of Ireland. And since the Jewish faith accepts that any descendant of a Jewish mother is Jewish that would make Teia Tephi’s descendants Israelites. How ironic that the racist euphemism, “He must be Irish” that used to be used in reference to someone who is a follower of Judaism should turn out to be true in part, since the tribe of Israelites known as the Tribe of Dan are known to have settled in Denmark and Ireland.
During the destruction of Jerusalem, by King Nebuchadnezzar’s troops in 588 B.C., Jeremiah hid with Zedekiah’s daughter Teia Tephi under The Temple of Solomon, in a cave where the Ark of the Covenant was concealed along with Jacob’s Pillar known as The Bethel/Lia Fail Stone, which is King David’s Throne of Israel. Inside the Ark of the Covenant were kept the original Five Books of the Torah and the Stone Tablets, on which the Ten Commandments were written, that were given to Moses at Horeb in Sinai.
Baruch, Jeremiah’s scribe, came and told them that the coast was clear, so Jeremiah took Teia Tephi and the holy relics to Mizpah and then on to Tahpanhes (Tanis) in Egypt, where it was safe at least for the time being. There they stayed in a palace that was given to Teia Tephi by Pharaoh Hophra, who adopted her as his own daughter. The palace, although now in ruins at Tel Defneh, is still known as Quasr Bint el Jehudi, which means “Palace of the Daughter of Judah.” Teia Tephi even foresaw this in her book.
The royal party stayed at Tanis temporarily until Jeremiah received a warning through Divine agency that Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon planned to invade Egypt and that they must leave and remove the Ark to its intended place of safety. Jeremiah’s group left Tanis on a moonless cloudy night, sailing in a ship of Tyre, piloted by a Danite named Buchi son of Helek, who was accompanied by his son Boedan, to Carthage, where they arrived three weeks later, weighing anchor offshore without disembarking. At sunset, a strong wind blew from the desert, driving them north and tearing their sails. On the seventh day, they entered a little bay by the mouth of an unknown river that ran from east to west, where they dropped anchor.
Drawing lots to see who would go ashore to find out where they were, the lot fell upon Boedan, the pilot’s son, who rowed ashore in their skiff. Boedan captured a local and brought him aboard the ship so that Buchi the pilot, who spoke a polyglot gifted in languages, could ask him where they were. They discovered that they were in the Tiber Estuary and were advised to avoid Rome at all costs. Jeremiah made many such prophecies concerning Rome, including about the time of the Roman Crucifixion of Jesus and beyond. From there, they sailed on between Corsica and Sardinia, where Jeremiah prophesied that in the latter days Napoleon would unsuccessfully attack Russia.
Jeremiah’s group soon arrived at Gibraltar, the Gate, which consisted of a rock shaped like a lion. There Teia Tephi was proclaimed Queen, by the Gadite Israelites who had settled there and the rock itself even cried out her name, acknowledging her as its Queen. Teia found many of the inhabitants worshipping Melcarth, better known as Neptune, and condemned them for their idolatry. There was even an idol of Neptune at a shrine and the idol held a golden trident in its right hand, which Elier, the ruler of Gibraltar, ordered to be taken from the idol and given to Teia Tephi to go with the Olive-sprig she had brought with her from Jerusalem. But when the priests struggled to remove the trident, the idol was smashed in two.
During their five month stay, Queen Teia and the prophet Jeremiah made many prophecies about the future of Gibraltar, only one of which still remains to be fulfilled. The crew of the Tyrian ship that brought them to Gibraltar were evil and plotted to kill Jeremiah, Teia Tephi and the others, but three months after their arrival, the crew’s evil plot was discovered and foiled, so they fled to Egypt in shame.
On their way back to Egypt, the Tyrian ship sank with no survivors, which explains why nobody knew where the Ark went after it left Tanis. This was confirmed by Baruch who saw a vision of the ship sinking, immediately before his own death, passing away at the age of eighty and being buried at Caer Teia, Gibraltar.
During their stay in Gibraltar, the Ark was kept in St. Michael’s Cave in the Rock of Gibraltar. Michael, after whom the cave is named, is the Archangel who taught Moses in Michael’s Cave long before the birth of Jesus, as recorded in Surah 18 of the Koran. He is also known as Christ the Spirit-Being, God’s oldest son, who is believed to have incarnated as Jesus. It is prophesied in the Bible, the Koran, Nostradamus’ Centuries and The Book of Tephi, that Jesus the Christ will return to Ireland, and according to the prophecies of Nostradamus, unveil the recovered Ark of the Covenant as incontrovertible proof to the world that the Irish people are true Israelites.
Two months after the Tyrian ship had left Gibraltar and sunk, the Gadites’ Milesian allies helped Jeremiah’s party by capturing a Greek vessel, which was then sailing with the aid of Simon, the son of Elier the ruler of Gibraltar, guiding them across the Bay of Algeciras and through the Straits to Breogan in Spain. There Jeremiah introduced them to Ith Cian, the Israelite ruler, who like the Egyptian pharaoh before him, adopted Teia Tephi as his daughter. Ith told them of his missing son called Lughaidh, who had sailed off several years before with his five ships and was presumed dead, but that as we shall learn turned out to be a wrongful assumption.
When they left Breogan en route to Ireland, they got caught in a violent storm that lasted seven days and broke the oars and rudder of their boat, so they could not control the direction of the ship. After being blown north for several days, they sighted land and the wind guided their boat right into the bay at Mara-Zion, near St Michael’s Mount in Cornwall. This miraculously ensured they would not land unannounced and unprotected in Ireland. At Mara-Zion, they met Elatha, the powerful Israelite ruler of Cornwall, who was a kinsman of Ith Cian of Breogan and an ally of Elier bar Ziza of the Gate of Gibraltar. Elatha welcomed them and saw to it that their boat was repaired. He then sent a message to the King Ard ri of Ireland to say that Teia Tephi, the Queen of Jerusalem, was coming and requested a guarantee of safe passage for her.
When Teia Tephi and Jeremiah informed Elatha of the fall of Jerusalem, he wept bitterly, which gave Mara-Zion its name, which is Hebrew, and not Cornish or English, and means “Bitter for Jerusalem”. Elatha consulted with Jeremiah and was consoled by the knowledge that all of the Promises God made to His friend Abraham would be fulfilled, when Christ would come from the Tribe of Joseph / Ephraim and would once again reunite all of the twelve tribes of Israel, including the Irish Danites.
The Irish kings on receiving Elatha’s message, responded with their reply, which was a message of welcome and many gifts of gold and silver to Teia Tephi to show her she would be safe and that they all sought her favour, some even offering her their hand in marriage. Eochaidh sent his family’s most treasured heirloom, a piece of jewellery called the “Sun of Helen”, referring to the famed Helen of Troy for whom a thousand war ships had set sail. His sires had purportedly the precious heirloom as a spoil of war at the Battle of Troy, where his Zarahite ancestors and the Danite Greek ancestors of the Irish people, including Ulysses, had built their famous Trojan horse, which had tricked the Trojans, allowing them to breach the city walls.
After receiving their positive answer and invitation, Elatha sent his son Bressail, who was Nuadh, the King of Ulster’s Champion and fifty-three ships, with two thousand and five men, to escort Teia Tephi safely to Ireland. Jeremiah at that point was advised through Divine agency to take the Ark of the Covenant in a separate ship and hide. He was warned that there was going to be a rebellion and it was not yet safe to bring the Ark of the Covenant to Tara.
Teia Tephi arrived with the Bethel / Lia Fail Stone and her two handmaidens at Pen Edair (Binn Eadair – Howth), near Ath Cliath (Dublin) Ireland on June 18, 583 B.C. She was greeted by Eochaidh, the High King (Ard ri – Heremon, which probably derives from Mount Hermon in the Golan Heights, which is the original settlement of the Tribe of Dan) and Ethan, the king’s harper and intimate friend, between whom she was carried ashore. Both instantly became smitten with the extraordinary queen. Teia Tephi knew only the identity of the harper Ethan and didn’t know that the other person carrying her was actually Eochaidh, the High King, whom she was destined to marry. She stayed that night at the Fort of Crimthann, which was built on the top of Howth Hill.
Eochaidh, who was called away to rescue his kidnapped sister, had as a child been given a vision and told that he must not marry no matter how far on in years he got, since one day his queen would arrive from the East. When he received the message from Elatha that the queen was coming from Jerusalem to live in Ireland, he realised that his wait was almost over and his boyhood vision was about to come true.
Teia Tephi was then escorted to Cathair Crofinn (The Hill of Tara), where she arrived on the June 20, 583 B.C. and was escorted to the house that had already been prepared for her (Rath Grainne – Fort of the Seed) there, where the Druids had written ‘Jerusalem’ in Hebrew above the door.
At Tara, there were a number of priests, who followed the satanic Baal-religion and who had erected a phallic-pillar stone in order to worship the mythical pagan gods associated with Baal, the demonic fertility god. Teia Tephi had brought with her the Torah or “God’s Laws”, which state that worshipping false gods and making graven images of them, is strictly forbidden and punishable by death (the Second Commandment), so she ordered that the obscene stone phallus be removed immediately and the Bethel Stone / Lia Fail (God’s Throne of Israel) be installed in its place on the Forrad (Inauguration Mound).
The Baal-priests didn’t listen to her at first and left the phallic stone in place. They then decided that they would choose who Teia Tephi would marry by firing an arrow in the air so that whoever’s seat the arrow landed closest to would be the one chosen to marry Teia Tephi. To begin with, they fired arrows from a bow dedicated to Baal without success due to its wild inaccuracy.
It was then decided that the Bow of Strength (Samson’s Bow), since Samson was one of their Danite ancestors, should instead be used. Samson’s Bow was accompanied by three arrows that were far truer, but before it could be used, they had to find someone strong enough to string the bow. The broadest man on the island was Ethdan, who strained to bend the bow far enough to be able to fit the string, but he eventually succeeded as the string snapped into place inside the groove. Ethdan moved swiftly to the centre of the circle, laid down, placed his feet against the bow and fired the first arrow, which was gold-tipped, into the air and it came down with a ray of bright light hitting the Lia Fail Stone (Bethel Stone – House of God). This symbolized the fact that Teia Tephi was to be first and foremost married to God and His Laws found in the Torah, humbly serving her people as their queen.
While the divining of issues by the use of arrows was forbidden by Divine law, an important exception was made in this case to ensure that the Lord’s well-laid plans would not be thwarted. Hence, it is believed that the arrows were miraculously interfered with and made to go where He wanted them to go. Meanwhile, Teia was anxiously looking around for the strong but gentle man whom she had instantly felt safe with at Howth, to no avail.
The second arrow to be dispatched had a silver tip, which came down on the seat of Eochaidh, the High King of Ireland, indicating that Eochaidh was the man that Teia was predestined to marry. Tephi did not know that Eochaidh was the one she was looking for or that this was his seat because no one was sitting in it at the time. As a result, they decided to fire the last of the three arrows with the Bow of Strength, which had a bent shaft and a tip of lead. As they fired the arrow, it spun off to the side twisting appropriately like a snake and hitting the phallic Baal-pillar, knocking the gilded horns off in the process, proving that Baal-worship was forbidden because of its evil and satanic nature.
When the people saw what had happened, they realised that Teia Tephi’s previous words of warning were true, so the Druids repented and took her side against the Baal priests and removed the phallic Baal-pillar from the Inauguration Mound (Forrad) and buried it near where Duma na nGiall (Teamur – Tephi’s wall – now known as The Mound of The Hostages), where it stands today.
Eochaidh the Ard ri (the High King), whose seat the silver arrow had hit, arrived and introduced himself to Teia Tephi. Teia instantly recognised him as the one she had met and fallen in love with at Howth and knew that he was the one she was destined to marry, filling her heart with gladness. They then gave their pledges of marriage over the Lia Fail / Bethel Stone, and Teia Tephi stood upon the Lia Fail, where she was declared the Queen of all Ireland.
As Eochaidh was from the Zarah (the ‘Red Hand’) branch and Teia Tephi was from the line of David of the Pharez branch of Judah, their marriage sealed the breach caused centuries before when Judah’s twin sons were born. This marriage union, which took place at Rath na ri (the Fort of the kings) at Tara in Royal Meath, is commemorated on the Ulster flag, where the ‘Red Hand’ of Zarah is mounted upon the Star of David under the single Royal Crown, symbolizing the union of the two royal lines that sprang from Judah.
The phallic pillar stone dedicated to Baal, which is now wrongfully and blasphemously called the Lia Fail, was rediscovered and placed on the Inauguration Mound at Tara sometime between 1839 and 1845. As the real Lia Fail is also known as Bethel, meaning ‘House of God’ in Hebrew and it is prophesied that Christ will come and be Inaugurated King of the Israelites, including the Danites of Ireland, upon the Lia Fail Stone at Tara, there could be no greater insult to God or Christ than to name a stone phallus the Lia Fail. This is blaspheming God whose House, where His honoured son should come and live, is a stone phallus and that Christ should come and sit on it. The wrongful naming of the obscene phallic stone at Tara is believed by many to have brought a curse upon Ireland, which brought about the Great Famine of 1845-52, which is still referred to as the “Curse of Tara” to this day. Beginning in 1845, the six years of famine is estimated to have killed over a million Irish and caused another million to flee the country in desperation.
Ireland in the mid-1800s was an agricultural nation with a population of eight million, who were among the poorest people in the Western World. Only about a quarter of the population could read and write. Life expectancy was short, just forty years for men. The Irish married quite young, girls at sixteen, boys at seventeen or eighteen, and tended to have large families, although infant mortality was also quite high.
A British survey in 1835 found half of the rural families in Ireland living in single-room, windowless mud huts with no chimneys. The people lived in small communal clusters, known as clachans, spread out among the beautiful countryside. The cabins were built to hold up to a dozen people, sleeping in straw on the bare ground, sharing the space in many cases with the family’s pig and chickens. In some cases, mud cabin occupants were actually the dispossessed descendants of Irish estate owners. It was not uncommon for a beggar in Ireland to mention that he was in fact the descendant of an ancient Irish king. If this doesn’t suggest a fall from grace caused by a great curse, then it begs for explanation.
Most of the Irish countryside was owned by an English and Anglo-Irish hereditary ruling class. Many were absentee landlords that visited their properties once or twice a year if at all. Mainly Protestant, they held titles to enormous tracts of land confiscated from native Irish Catholics by British conquerors such as Oliver Cromwell. The landlords often utilized local agents to manage their estates while living high on the hog from the rents received from dispossessed Irish Catholics.
Throughout Ireland, Protestants known as middlemen rented large amounts of land on the various estates, then subdivided the land into smaller holdings, which they rented to poor Catholic farmers. The middleman system began in the 1700s and became a major source of misery as they kept subdividing estates into smaller and smaller parcels while increasing the rent every year in a practice known as rack-renting.
The average tenant farmer lived at a subsistence level on less than ten acres. These Catholic farmers were usually considered tenants-at-will and could be evicted on short notice at the whim of the landlord, his agent, or middleman. By law, any improvements they made, such as building a stone house, became the property of the landlord. Thus there was never any incentive to upgrade their living conditions.
The tenant farmers often allowed landless laborers, known as cottiers, to live on their farms. The cottiers performed daily chores and helped bring in the annual harvest as payment of rent. In return, they were allowed to build a small cabin and keep their own potato garden to feed their families. Other landless laborers rented small fertilized potato plots from farmers, with a portion of their potato harvest given up as payment of rent. Poor Irish laborers, more than anyone, became totally dependent on the potato for their existence. They also lived in a state of permanent insecurity with the ever-present threat of being thrown off their land.
The most fertile farmland was found in the north and east of Ireland. The more heavily populated south and west featured large tracts of wetland and rocky soil. Mountains and bogs cover about a third of Ireland. By the mid-1800s, the density of Irish living on cultivated land was about seven hundred people per square mile, among the highest population desnity in Europe.
Potatoes are not native to Ireland but likely originated in the Andes Mountains of Peru. In the early 1500s, Spanish conquerors found the Incas growing the vegetable, which the Spanish called patata. They were taken back to Europe and eventually reached England where the name changed to potato. About 1590, potatoes were introduced to Ireland, where farmers quickly discovered they thrived in their country’s cool moist soil. An acre of potatoes thriving in fertilized soil could yield up to twelve tons of potatoes, enough to feed a family of six for a year with enough to spare to feed the livestock.
By the 1800s, the potato had become the staple crop. More than three million Irish peasants subsisted solely on the vegetable, which is rich in protein, carbohydrates, minerals, and vitamins such as riboflavin, niacin and Vitamin C. It is possible to subsist on a diet of potatoes alone, though the Irish often drank a little buttermilk with their meal and sometimes used salt, cabbage, and fish as seasoning. In fact, Irish peasants were healthier than their counterparts in England or Europe, where far less nutritious bread was the staple food.
Irish farmers utilized an ancient “lazy bed” planting technique. Using a simple spade, they first marked long parallel lines in the soil about four feet apart throughout the entire plot. In between the lines, they piled a mixture of manure and crushed seashells then turned over the surrounding sod onto this, leaving the grass turned upside down. Seed potatoes were inserted in-between the overturned grass and the layer of fertilizer then buried with dirt dug-up along the marked lines. The potato bed was thus raised about a foot off the surrounding ground, with good drainage provided via the newly dug parallel trenches.
Planting occurred in the spring beginning around St. Patrick’s Day. Most of the poor Irish grew a variety known as Lumpers, a high yielding, but less nutritious potato that didn’t mature until September or October. Every year for the poor, July and August were the hungry months as the previous year’s crop became inedible and the current crop wasn’t quite ready for harvest. This was the yearly “summer hunger”, also called “meal months”, referring to oat or barley meal bought from price gauging dealers out of necessity. During the summer hunger, women and children from the poorest families resorted to begging along the roadside while the men sought temporary work in the harvest fields of England.
By autumn, the potatoes were ready to be harvested, carefully stored in pits, and eaten during the long winter into the spring and early summer. The Irish consumed an estimated seven million tons in this way each year. The system worked year after year and the people were sustained as long as the potato crop didn’t fail.
In response to the blasphemous acts of the Baal worshippers, and the wrongful instillation of the phallic pillar stone as the Lia Fail, Teia Tephi began instituting the Torah in Ireland. The Torah is perfectly fair and judicious as a code of law, uniting everyone regardless of class under one system. Under the Torah, nobody can oppress anyone else by inflicting their own selfish opinion or laws and taxes on them, so nobody can lord themselves over others, since all men are created equal in the eyes of God.
As Ireland had been divided into many small kingdoms each with its own king or warlord who had made up their own self-serving laws, many of these kings and warlords didn’t like the Torah, because under God’s Laws, they would have to redistribute the wealth they had appropriated from the people. They would lead rather than “rule” as the peoples’ equals, or servants as a rightful king should (Deut. 17:14-20), rather than falsely placing themselves above their people as an aristocratic caste of exploiters.
Bressail Mac Elatha, the champion of King Nuadh of Ulster was one of the evil rulers who didn’t want to conform to the Laws of the Torah. He gathered the support of other selfish kings and rulers of Ireland, Scotland, Wales and England, who shared his wrongful ideology. Bres even tried to seek the support of Elatha (meaning Wisdom), but she was righteous and too wise to fight against God’s chosen, so he refused to join his son in what he viewed as a blasphemous rebellion against God’s covenant.
In the meantime, Queen Tephi and Kimg Eochaidh travelled north to visit Nuadh, King of Ulster, where they were entertained at Navan Fort. They journeyed from Navan Fort to Mullagh, where they held council about the rebels. Dala from Ath Cliath (Dublin) came close to the gate of Mullagh and insulted them. Ethan ran forward returning the insult and rammed a hard apple into Dala’s mouth, breaking his teeth and causing him to stagger backward in agony, where he then collapsed with the apple still stuck in his jaws. Tephi went after Dala with some sherry wine to tend to his injury and met with Lughaidh, the once missing and presumed dead son of Ith Cian of Spain. After establishing each other’s identity through a charming question-and-answer recognition scene, Lughaidh swore allegiance to his stepsister, Queen Tephi. Tephi told him about how concerned his father, Ith Cian, was about his welfare, bidding him to contact him straight away with news of his survival. Lughaidh then took Tephi south to visit his camp in Bregia and introduced her to his men. Lughaidh’s force split and some followed him to join Tephi, while others left to join the rebels. They later decided to go north again to inform Nuadh that they had managed to gather new allies.
On their journey, they met up with Ith Cian, who had received word from Bregia that his son, Lughaidh, was alive and well and living in Ireland. Upon hearing the glad tidings, Ith made haste to Ireland to visit his long lost son. At this happy reunion, grim news was received that a rebellion led by Bressail had been launched against Teia Tephi and the Torah, so Ith returned to Spain tomuster his forcces in defense of Queen Tephi.
On the way to Howth, from where he was to set sail back to Spain, he was attacked by three men of Tyre – Tyrians (known in Irish legend as the sons of Turenn – whom he had previously driven out of Eber (Spain). The three ruffians stoned him to death and buried him under a pile of stones in a place now called Cian aneus Mor or Ceanannus Mor (Kells), which means Great Cian from the South (the King of Spain). Spain was also known as the Sunlands of the South. When Lughaidh later learned what had become of his father, he tracked down and slew the three ruffians who had killed him, and buried them under the same stones that they had killed and buried Ith Cian under.
Teia Tephi, Eochaidh, Lughaidh and Armagh arrived at Navan Fort, and Lughaidh played a joke on the guards where Nuadh, the King of Ulster lived. They later mustered their forces to defend Teia Tephi and God’s Laws against Bressail and the rebels, who were plotting to destroy them all. They sent a message across the land to gather the righteous and God-fearing to join them. Then Tephi returned to Mullagh, in what was then her province of Teffia, where she heard of the many fomorian (pirate) ships bringing Bressail’s rebels to Ireland from Wales to fight for Bressail. There were so many ships that they almost looked like a bridge. Teia Tephi then sent a message to Elatha of Cornwall to tell him of his son Bressail’s evil deeds, so Elatha sent his ships to put a stop to the fomorians and limit the income of rebels, many of whom left Ireland and returned back to their homes for fear of Elatha.
It was decided that the battle would be held at the Ford of Unna (meaning “Destruction”). There, they assembled their forces to prepare for the battle that would take place on October 31, 583 B.C. On October 16, there was a Lunar Eclipse in the Constellation of Taurus, the astronomical Zodiac Constellation represented by the bull symbol, during which time the moon would have looked blood-red and would have been seen as an omen of death and defeat by the Baal-worshippers, whose symbol is also a bull.
In the early stages of the battle, Ethan, the king’s harper, who was love-sick and melancholy over Teia Tephi, ran forward unarmoured, to take-out Bressail, first with a spear and then his sword, but his sword broke on Bressail’s breast-plate and Bres knocked Ethan to the ground, but then protected him by laying his shield over him. Bennan sneaked in and stabbed Ethan under Bres’ shield with his spear, so Teia Tephi, seeing this, sent Aci to seek justice for the death of Ethan. Other losses were of Nuadh, who was slain by his old enemy Balor, who himself was later killed by Lughaidh. Then Ogma and Indech, who rode against each other, simultaneously killed each other with their spears.
Because Teia Tephi’s army was fighting for God and His Laws, they defeated the rebels with ease, even though they were greatly outnumbered, as Ith Cian had been murdered and so had not returned with his army. Five thousand and sixty-three were killed on the side of Bressail, including forty-two kings and many captains of hundreds, after which Tephi took Eochaidh’s white horse and bravely rode up to the enemy lines, carrying her golden trident, where she bravely offered to accept the enemy’s surrender. Bressail knowing that he was beaten, surrendered and swore allegiance to Teia Tephi. She then ordered him to help Lughaidh clear the seas of Fomorians (pirates).
On Queen Tephi’s side, the casualties were relatively few, only sixteen hundred and five in total, less than a third of the number slain on Bressail’s side, including the Baal worshippers and other rebels. Tephi became the legendary War-queen of Ireland, with her olive sprig and trident, because of her prowess and success on the battlefield. Many believe she would have won regardless of the odds due to receiving Divine favour. Unfortunately, from this latter belief, she was later wrongfully deified as the mythical goddess Bo/Bovinda and once having entered the realms of myth and fantasy she became lost to history as the real-life queen of the Israelites and Danite Irish.
To try to prevent this blasphemous deification, which had already begun whilst she was still alive, Teia Tephi told the Irish people to hold, near her palace at Teltown close to Kells, the “Funeral Games” on the anniversary of her death, in order to prove that she was human and not a goddess). She died on the Calends, August 1, 534 B.C. These games had special rules based on the Torah, to commemorate and remember, both her and the Torah (God’s Law), to make the people keep only God’s Law as He commanded the people of Israel (Deuteronomy 4:2; 17:14-20), in order to prevent her descendants and others from inventing their own laws and the people thereby returning to poverty, division, strife and war as an accursed people.
After the Battle of Unna, in which the Baal-worshippers were defeated, peace was finally brought to Ireland because the Torah was fully instituted as National Law. The people of rank who died in the battle of Unna were buried in the mound of Knowth and those of lower rank were buried in the many satellite graves and burial mounds around Knowth and throughout the Boyne Valley. It was from these many burial mounds that the battle became known as the Second Battle of Moytura, or more correctly, the Battle of the Second Moytura (Plain of Towers).
At Tara, Teia Tephi’s judgment place, she was attacked with a poison blade by Cethlenn, the widow of Balor whom Lughaidh had killed in battle. Eochaidh was swift to defend Teia Tephi from her attacker, but the poison blade fell from Cethlenn’s hand and wounded Eochaidh in the foot, which very nearly killed him. He never fully recovered from this wound, hich stayed with him in the form of a lim for the rest of his days.
Jeremiah landed in Ireland with the Ark of the Covenant and it was placed, along with a number of other significant artifacts including David’s harp, the Irish national emblem, in a specially constructed subterranean Grand Mergech (Mergech is not an Irish word but a Hebrew word for “a secret treasure store”), beneath the Mound of The Hostages, at the Hill of Tara. The Mergech, which was also designed to be Teia Tephi’s tomb, was then sealed up, until the death of Teia Tephi on the Calends, August 1, 534 B.C., after which her body was then placed in the Mergech tomb, where it was resealed and has remained untouched ever since.
In various Irish historical writings, the Tomb of Teia Tephi is said to be northeast of the Forrad, south of the Rath of the Synods and under a mound that measures 62 feet by 62 feet. Based on sacred writings, the only place it is believed it can be is under the Mound of the Hostages at the Hill of Tara.
Legend has it that Jeremiah landed at Carrickfergus in Northern Ireland and brought the Ark across country to Tara, in Royal Meath. Once the Ark was safely sealed in Teia Tephi’s future tomb, Jeremiah’s mission for God was complete and he died on the September 21, 581 B.C. He was buried in what is now called Cairn T at the Loughcrew Hills graveyard.
The people never forgot Bressail’s selfishness, wickedness, and arrogance, so he was buried in a tomb that faced the setting sun as opposed to the rising sun of dawn, and his grave was named Dowth, which is derived from the ancient Gaelic word Dubad meaning “darkness”. Teia Tephi had a palace built at Teltown near Kells, where she lived with Eochaidh and her four children named Aedh, Ainge, Aengus and Cermad.
The Lia Fail Stone that Teia Tephi brought with her from Jerusalem stayed in Ireland, on the Forrad or “Inauguration Mound” at Tara, and all of the Irish kings were crowned upon the Stone up to c. 500 A.D. It was then loaned to Fergus, the brother of Muircheartach (Murdoch) King of Ireland, who had emigrated to Scotland and wanted to be crowned king of the Irish who had settled there and had become Scottish.
The Stone was never returned to Tara and stayed in Scotland, where it was called the Stone of Destiny (English for Lia Fail) and all of the Scottish kings were crowned upon it, until 1296 A.D. when Edward I of England, better known by the nickname “Longshanks”, invaded Scotland, defeated the Scots and took the Stone, from Scone Abbey near Perth to London where all of the English kings were subsequently crowned in Westminster Abbey upon the Stone of Destiny up to and including George VI.
In 1950, four Scottish Nationalists removed the Stone from Westminster Abbey, took it back to Scotland and a substitution, called the Stone of Scone, was later placed at Arbroath, from whence it was taken to London. It was this counterfeit stone that Elizabeth II was crowned upon in 1953, so in actual fact she has never really officially been crowned Queen of the British people, since the coronation ceremony was never conducted with the proper sacred relic in place.
All of the Irish, Scottish and English monarchs after 583 B.C. descend from Eochaidh and Teia Tephi of the line of David from the House of Judah. The Stone was taken in 1950 from the House of Windsor from the line of David in fulfillment of the prophecies in the Book of Genesis, chapter 49:10 – “The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a law-giver from between his feet, until Shiloh comes.” That is its destiny, preordained by God and why it has always been known as the Stone of Destiny, since it was first removed from Bethel by the Israelites and carried through the wilderness on a pole for forty years with Moses.
Teia Tephi left many prophecies in her autobiography, most of which have been fulfilled in exact and minute detail. The most important one is yet to be fulfilled and it states that she will, one day very soon, as Nostradamus apparently concurs, be recovered from her tomb at the Hill of Tara and the Torah contained in the Ark of the Covenant will once again be reinstituted, bringing peace and prosperity to a unified Ireland, with the simultaneous ascension of the Shiloh to the throne, as King of the faithful of Israel upon the real Bethel / Lia Fail / Stone of Destiny on the Inauguration Mound at the Hill of Tara on the Island of Destiny.
Another point of amazing significance is that, at the beginning of chapter 31 of her Book, Teia Tephi prophesied that the last overturn of the Throne to Christ, would happen on the 2,484th anniversary of her death, in 534 B.C., which coincides perfectly with 1950 when four brave Scottish Nationalists removed the Stone of Destiny from Westminster Abbey, so that Elizabeth could not be crowned while the promised Shiloh is on Earth. All that remains now is for the Ark to be recovered and Shiloh to be crowned King at Tara on the Stone of Destiny.
The rivalry between the two English royal houses seems to be between the Tribe of Dan and the Tribe of Judah. The War of the Roses, representing a conflict between the Red Rose of the House of York and the White Rose of the House of Lancaster, appears to symbolize a feud between rival tribes. The Tribe of Judah is represented by the Lion, depicted roaring and in its power, and the Tribe of Dan, represented by the Unicorn, chained and in bondage in the British Royal Coat-of-Arms.
The royal line of Ireland has the Haplotype R1B1 genetic. The Irish king line has the Cohen Haplotype, the genetic line of the Jewish priesthood, the Cohenim. The Tuatha de Danann or Tribe of Dan is known to have gone to Ireland. His uncle was Joseph of Arimathea. “Arimathea” is a royal Danite title. Hence it may be that Jesus is not from the line of Judah at all, but rather the line of Dan. In the Holy Land, the Danites hail from the Danite mountain stronghold known as Mount Hermon. Mount Hermon is in the Golan Heights and is the traditional site of the Danite settlement, where they undertook Druidic practices as Druids.
Despite being one of the sons of Jacob, the Tribe of Dan apparently has Celtic roots, and the bloodline has been traced to a common ancestor in the Caucus Mountain region 9,500 B.C. Jesus and his uncle traveled to England and Ireland. Jesus’ uncle Joseph of Arimathea had tin mines in Cornwall, which he mined to render unto Caesar the things that were his like Roman swords, shields and armour. Joseph also apparently established the birthplace of Freemasonry in England at St. Albans in 63 A.D.
The oldest royal family of Ulster, Ireland is the McNea family. They descend from Egyptian and Danite royal lines. They later migrated to the county of Westmoreland in Scotland. Scotland is really Scota-land, named after Pharaoh Akhenaten’s daughter Scota. The McNea family changed their name to Nevill when they settled in Westmoreland, Scotland. They later moved to England. The king lines of both the House of York and the House of Lancaster took assiduous pains to marry into the Nevill family or related families like the de la Pole family.
Many of the true claimants to the throne on both the Lancastrian and York sides were hunted down and killed by Tudor King Henry VIII, since they had a greater claim to the throne since his own line had been tainted through the marriage of his ancestor Edward IV to commoner Elizabeth Woodville, whose original name was apparently spelled Wydevil. Was she a witch belonging to a satanic family descended from the line of Cain?
Elizabeth, the daughter of Edward IV and Elizabeth Woodville, married Henry VII and gave birth to future King Henry VIII. Henry VII murdered rivals to the throne, killing Edward V and Richard Duke of York after 1485, as well as Edward Earl of Warwick. Henry the VIII continued his father’s work by murdering Sir Richard Pole, Edmund de la Pole, Henry Pole B. Montague, since the Poles all shared a family connection to the Nevills, having married into the true royal line.
Sir Geoffrey Pole escaped assassination by fleeing into exile, while John de la Pole, Earl of Lincoln, heir presumptive of Henry VII was killed in battle as was Richard de la Pole, whether by design or accident cannot be firmly established. Henry Pole was imprisoned in the Tower of London by Henry VIII, while Arthur Pole and Henry Pole suffered the same fate under Elizabeth I. Sir Edward Nevill was also executed by Henry VIII, while Lady Jane Grey, the Nine Days Queen, was executed by Henry VIII’s daughter Mary I in 1553, who also executed Thomas Stafford, son of Henry Stafford, a baron who had also married a Pole.
“Hamlet” is autobiographical and is a declaration that the royal court would return to the Stuart line of King James the VI of Scotland. Mary Queen of Scots and James VI are represented by Old Fortinbras and Young Fortinbras of Norway in the play, since Scotland is due north of England just as Norway is due north of Denmark. In “Hamlet”, a curse has befallen the prince’s family so that succession must go to the royal family of the “northern kingdom”. The author set the play in Denmark to disguise the references to the royal court of England. The rival bloodlines are represented by the red and white rose. The Tudor family holds the red rose pedigree of the York line, while the House of Lancaster, of which the Stuart line belongs, embodies the rival white.
