Change Date: 29 SEP 2004
He is most popularly regarded as the youngest son, though some traditio ns regard him as the eldest son.
JAPHETH, son of Noah (No. 10 ante), is stated in O'Hart's Irish Pedigre es to have had fifteen sons. Besides those mentioned in the Bible, Gome r, Magog, Madai, Javan (or Iauan), Tubal, Meshech, and Tiras, O'Hart (Iri sh Pedigrees) mentions Baoth, who received Scythia as his lot upon the div ision of the land, but another authority states that Baoth was a son of Ma gog and grandson of Japheth. Another son of Japheth was Bedwig (or Belwig ), according to the Genealogical Chart of the Royal Houses of Europe, by F rederick D. Hartland (1854) in the Library of Congress, Washington. Japhet h, in the division of the land, received western Asia beyond the Euphrat es and Europe.
