Aeneas Bearing Anchises from Troy, by Carle van Loo, 1729Anchisa "The Dardanian" of  Troy - Prince of Troy

    Birth 1275 BCE
    Death 1180 BCE

Aeneas'_Flight_from_Troy_by_Federico_BarocciAeneus Latium
    Birth About 1245 BCE in Latium

In Greco-Roman mythology, Aeneas (pron.: /ɪˈniːəs/; Greek: Αἰνείας, Aineías, possibly derived from Greek αἰνή meaning "praise") was a Trojan hero, the son of the prince Anchises and the goddess Aphrodite. His father was the second cousin of King Priam of Troy, making Aeneas Priam's second cousin, once removed. He is a character in Greek mythology and is mentioned in Homer's Iliad, and receives full treatment in Roman mythology as the legendary founder of what would become Ancient Rome, most extensively in Virgil's Aeneid.

          Aeneas' Flight from burning Troy - by Federico Barocci

Iulus (Julus) Ascanius Ap Aeneus - King of Alba Longa, King di Italia
    Birth 1200 BCE in Troy, Asia Minor

Ascanius is a legendary king of Alba Longa and is the son of the Trojan hero Aeneas. He is a character in Roman mythology, and has a divine lineage, being the son of Aeneas, who is son of goddess Venus and the hero Anchises, a relative of the king Priam; thus Ascanius has divine ascendents by both parents, being descendant of god Jupiter, his wife Juno and Dardanus. He is also an ancestor of Romulus, Remus and the Gens Julia. Together with his father, he is a major character in the Aeneid, and he is depicted as one of founders of the Roman race.

According to the accounts of Dionysius of Halicarnassus, the kings of Alba Longa gave a direct line of descent between Ascanius and Romulus.

Silvius "Selys Hen" Ap Iulus Ascanius - Prince of Alba Longa
    Birth 1170 BCE in Rome 

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 Karl_Bodmer_New_Harmony_1832_-_1833Ascanius, 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.

Brutus Hen Ap Sylvius "Selys" - King of Britons
    Birth 1150 BCE in Alba Longa

Through genealogical research data some legends can become historical figures or at least legends with
sound factual basis. Brutus of Troy is one such legend.

He is a direct descendant of Trojan Aeneas and the Romans banished him from Rome when he was a teen
 after he accidentally killed his father with an arrow.

-Coat_of_arms_of_GreeceHe went to Greece and formed a sizable army of Trojan warriors whom he had personally liberated from Greek enslavement. After reaching sizable numbers, he and his army sailed to Gaul to begin a campaign of plunder and conquest.

Several years later, the Goddess Diana came to him in his sleep one night to show him his new kingdom and how to get there. He and his army presently sailed to Briton and up the Thames River. Having conquered the entire island, Brutus renames the island after himself and becomes its first king. Corineus becomes ruler of Cornwall, which is named after him. They are harassed by the giants during a festival, but kill all of them but their leader, the largest giant Goemagot, who is saved for a wrestling match against Corineus. Corineus throws him over a cliff to his death. Brutus then founds a city on the banks of the River Thames, which he calls Troia Nova, or New Troy.

The name is in time corrupted to Trinovantum, and the city is later called London. He creates laws for his people
and rules for twenty-four years. After his death he is buried in Trinovantum, and the island is divided between his
three sons, Locrinus (England), Albanactus (Scotland) and Kamber (Wales).

Locrinus Ap Brutus Hen - King of Britons
    Birth 1110 BCE in Britain

Locrinus was a legendary king of the Britons, as recounted by Geoffrey of Monmouth. He was the oldest son of Brutus
and a descendant of the Trojans through Aeneas. Following Brutus's death, Britain was divided amongst the three sons,
with Locrinus receiving the portion roughly equivalent to England, Albanactus receiving Scotland (Albany), and Kamber
receiving Wales (Cymru). He ruled a portion of Britain called Loegria, named after him, which is roughly the boundaries
of modern-day England. He reigned 10 years, most of which were peaceful.

-  Mymbyr Ap Madog - King of Britons
    Birth About 1030 BCE in Britain

Efrog Gadarn Ap Mymbyr - King of Britons
Birth About 1010 BCE in Britain

Ebraucus (Welsh: Efrawg/Efrog) was a legendary king of the Britons, as recounted by Geoffrey of Monmouth. He was the son of King Mempricius before he abandoned the family.

Following the death of his father, Mempricius, he became king and reigned 39 years. According to Geoffrey he was admired, tall, and remarkably strong. He was the first to wage war on the Gauls since the time of Brutus. By pillaging the cities and shores and slaughtering many men, he became extremely wealthy and enriched the lands of Britain. He founded Kaerebrauc (City of Ebraucus) (later York) north of the Humber, (see Eboracum) and Alclud in Albany, (see Dunbarton, capital of Strathclyde). He had twenty wives who produced twenty sons and thirty daughters. All his daughters he sent to his cousin Silvius Alba in Alba Longa (Italy) to be married to the other Trojan descendants. Except for Brutus Greenshield, all of Ebraucus's sons, led by Assaracus, went to Germany, creating a kingdom there. Brutus thus succeeded Ebraucus upon his death.

The Mammouth Book of British Kings and Queens by Mike Ashley: page 76:

"Only one classical reference exists to Arviragus and that is in a poem by Juvenal which calls Arviragus a "Black Bull", probably meaning his strength and his dark flowing hair, as he rode his chariot recklessly through the Roman streets terrifying Nero.  There is a strong Welsh belief that Arviragus, or Gweirydd, was the king of the Silures who joined forces with Caratacus (possibly his brother) against the Romans.  He was captured alongside the Catuvellaunian chief and taken to Rome where he was also pardoned.  Tradition states that Arviragus returned to Wales and established the royal line from which King Arthur was descended.  Arviragus is treated as the king who welcomed Joseph of Arimathea to Britain in about 63 and granted him land at Glastonbury for his church.  The date of 67 has been assigned to his death on the basis of the Welsh genealogies.  Geoffrey of Monmouth extends the independence of Arviragus, making him a tribute-paying king who marries the daughter of the Emperor Claudius.  Through the friendship of Claudius, Arviragus is installed as ruler of Britain and the city of Glouchester is built.  Arviragus later defends Britain from an invastion by Vespasian and dies in old age, much loved and honoured.  According to Geoffrey he was succeeded by his son Marius."

"Old King Cole was a Merry Old Soul" of Nursery Rhyme fame known in other histories as Coel Hen Godhebog, Coel founded the city of Colchester that still bears his name (Kaercolim). His daughter, Helen, was married to Constantius, a Roman Senator, who was sent to Britain as legate. He became king on Coel's death. Coel was a British King, whose capital was Colchester. He married his daughter Helena to a Roman general and she subsequently became mother to the Emperor Constantine and was subsequently declared as saint for her work in spreading Christianity. Presumably Coel's good humour relates to the peace his daughter's marriage brought to his kingdom

There is no contemporary evidence for a king of this name, and modern scholars believe that his appearance in the Liber Pontificalis is the result of a scribal error.  However, for centuries the story of this "first Christian king" was  widely believed, especially in Britain, where it was considered an  accurate account of Christianity among the early Britons. During the English Reformation, the Lucius story was used in polemics by both Catholics and Protestants; Catholics considered it evidence of papal supremacy from a very early date, while Protestants used it to bolster  claims of the primacy of a British national church founded by the crown

Dolbadarn Castle Llanberis GwyneddLlywelyn ap Seisyll (died 1023) was a King of Gwynedd and of Deheubarth in north-west and south-west Wales, also called King of the Britons by the Annals of Ulster. Also called Llywelyn ap Seisyllt

Little is known about Llywelyn's father Seisyll, who may not have been of Royal blood. According to some genealogies Siesyll and his son Llywelyn were associated with * Rhuddlan, perhaps originally as lords of the Rhuddlan commote in Rhos.[1] Llywelyn's wife Angharad was the daughter of Maredydd ab Owain, who ruled much of both northern and southern Wales for a period.
Military successes: Llywelyn won control of Gwynedd in 1018 when he defeated Aeddan ap Blegywryd in battle, killing him and his four sons. He later gained control of Deheubarth, defeating Rhain, an Irish pretender who claimed to be the son of Maredudd ab Owain, at Abergwili in 1022.

According to the annals in Brut y Tywysogion, Llywelyn's reign was a period of prosperity, "there was no one needy in his realm, and there was no town empty or deserted". His reign was cut short by his premature death in 1023.

Succession: His son, Gruffydd ap Llywelyn, though still a youth when his father died, was later able to gain control of almost the whole of Wales

He was a womanizer and Haaland frequent liaisons 1571 Elizabeth I created him Lord Burghley, a year later, Knight of the Garter and Lord Treasurer.

Lord Burghley conducted what amounted to a school for young noblemen at his estate, partly to educate and partly to build the governing class and strengthen Elizabeth I. He was the founder of the Cecil dynasty which has produced many politicians including two Prime Ministers.

From Michael David Smart: "Sixty Old Master paintings drawn from the collection of one of England's grandest Elizabethan houses came to Lakeview museum in Italian Renaissance and Baroque Paintings, Paintings from the Burghley House Collection... This outstanding collection of 16th - 18th century paintings has remained near intact for more than 300 years at Burghley House, a 750 room house located 90 miles from London and home to 17 generations of the Cecil family. The house is the oldest home in England still lived in continuously by the same family.

Burghley House was finished in 1587 for Sir William Cecil... Though the interior was remodeled in the 1690's the house remains the finest example of late 16th century architecture in England.

Father of Ignatius Constantine Cissell: Thomas Washington Cissell; Alexander Thomas Cissell; Ann Cecilia Cecil; Ann Savilla Cissell; Thomas W. Cissell
.  He married Henrietta Hedric Medley, born Washington, KY.

Henrietta’s father, Ignatius Medley, was a native of St. Mary's Co, MD immigrated to KY through Lexington, where for about three years he worked as a house carpenter, and laid the first tongue-and-groove floor ever put down in Lexington. Upon locating in Washington Co. he married Sarah, daughter of Charles & Mary Boone, and purchased a tract of land on Hardin's Creek known as the Rice Survey, upon which land he erected the first copper still ever operated in Washington Co. They raised their grandchildren in 1833 after daughter Henrietta Hedric Medley Cissell and her husband Sylvester Cissell died of cholera.

Henrietta’s grandparents, John and Elizabeth (Beaven) Boone, were considered well to do and from a line of family wealth. John was a Planter in Prince George County, Maryland.  They had a chapel built on their property, which was the first Catholic Church edifice erected in Maryland after the relaxation of the penal laws enacted by the Puritan Council in Annapolis, Maryland. The Chapel, built of wood construction, was known as Boone's Chapel, (in present day Rosaryville), Prince George's County, Maryland, 1710, for use of the Catholics in the area. Boone's Chapel was used until 1842 when time and weather deterioated the chapel. A large oak tree stands as a memorial of the historic chapel. There are remaining crosses and markers in the old cemetery. The present day Most Holy Rosary Parish and Catholic Church stands near its place and continues the spiritual mission of the historic Boone's Chapel.

"Near its (Boone Chapel) site 'at the Woodstock gate,' according to the Planter's Advocate of June 8, 1859, 'the corner stone of a new chapel was laid, which is to be built of wood and will be called Boone's Chapel. The church was dedicated 'with the Rev. N.D. Young officiating, assisted by the Rev. Kelly, Provincial of the Dominican Order from Ohio and Rev. Bochkle of St. Dominic's Church, Washington, D.C." "Across the Years - In Prince George's County, by Effie Gwynn Bowie (pg 345)

Rev. Msgr. Edward P. Mc Adams, then Pastor of St. Joseph's Catholic Church, Washington D.C., tells that the Boone Chapel served Catholics of Prince George's County, Maryland during the time of Arnold Livers (1705-ca 1767). "Catholic Review," 22 Dec 1944

Archbishop John Carroll was baptized in Boone's Chapel, ca 1735. John Carroll was born 8 Jan 1735 in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, a short distance from the Boone's Chapel and present day Rosaryville, Maryland.

Archbiship John Carroll was instrumental in religious issues during the pre-revolutionary years and perhaps the 6th Amendment, sec. 3 to the US Constitution. John Carroll is credited to writing the "An Address to the Roman Catholics of the United States of North America" published 1784 in Annapolis, Maryland as the first Catholic work written by an American Catholic published in the USA.

Fr. John Carroll was the first bishop of the hierarchy of the USA. He was appointed as a bishop 6 Nov 1789 by Pope Pius VI, consecreated 15 Aug 1790 in England, and returned to Baltimore 7 Dec 1790 and celebrated his first Mass in the USA as a consecrated bishop.

Archbishop John Carroll was also the founder of Georgetown (College) University.

Interesting to note (a personal ‘Wow’ that I discovered in more recent years):

On the 207th day of the year in 1953, on the seventh month of that year, and the 26th day of that July (on my side of the world, yet the 27th on the other side of the world) ... it was on a Sunday (the seventh day of the week for some, yet the 1st day to others) when the a Full Moon was Eclipsed by a Total Lunar event, sometimes referred to as a Blood Moon for its red color.

They are known to be rare with only one out of three lunar eclipses being total.

It was a moment in history when the moon passed directly through the center of earths’ shadow, a natural cycle of our Universe.

Astrological calculators reveal it was the Longest Total Lunar Eclipse of the Twentieth Century and will not occur again at that length of time until November 4th, 2264.
