    .
    In II Chronicles 9, we read the famous story of the Queen of Sheba visiting Solomon in Jerusa lem:
    Now when the queen of Sheba heard of the fame of Solomon, she came to Jerusalem to test Solom on with hard questions, having a very great retinue, camels that bore species, gold in abunda nce, and precious stones; and when she came to Solomon, she spoke with him about all that wa s in her heart. So Solomon answered all her questions; there was nothing so difficult for Sol omon that he could not explain it to her.
    .
    And when the queen of Sheba had seen the wisdom of Solomon, the house that he had built, th e food on his table, the seating of his servants, the service of his waiters and their appare l, his cupbearers and their apparel, and his entryway by which he went up to the house of th e Lord, there was no more spirit in her...
    .
    Now king Solomon gave to the queen of Sheba all she desired, whatever she asked, much more th an she had brought to the king. So she turned and went to her own country, she and her servan ts.-- Verses 1-4, 12.
    .
    In a parallel account in the Antiquities of the Jews, by Flavius Josephus, the author state s that the queen was monarch of BOTH Ethiopia AND Egypt! In Matthew 12:42 and Luke 11:31 Jesu s called the Queen of Sheba "the queen of the South." If you carefully read the eleventh chap ter of the book of Daniel, you will find that the king of the SOUTH is the ruler of BOTH Egyp t and Ethiopia. Jesus' comments about the Queen of Sheba being the "queen of the South" there fore means that she was the ruler of Ethiopia AND Egypt. Who was this queen whom Solomon so a wed with his wisdom and magnificence?
    .
    During the long history of the Egyptian nation there were only THREE WOMAN PHARAOHS or queen s recorded -- Nitocris of the 6th Dynasty, Scemiophris (Sebeknofru) of the 12th, and Hashepso we (Hatshepsut) of the 18th. Which one of these could have been the Queen of Sheba?
    .
    Immanuel Velikovsky, in his ground-breaking work entitled "Ages in Chaos," discovered a clue:
    .
    There is a detail in the Ethiopian legend [about the Queen of Sheba] which only by a RARE CHA NCE could have been invented. The Ethiopians call the Queen of the South MAKEDA. The royal na me of QUEEN HATSHEPSUT, mentioned throughout the Punt reliefs, is MAKERA. "Ra" is the divin e name of a god. (Likewise "DA" could be the divine name ADAD or ADA, which is a part of seve ral scriptural names). The main part of the name of the Egyptian queen is IDENTICAL with th e first two syllables in the name of the Queen of the South [Sheba]. It was preserved in th e Ethiopian tradition; it did not come from the Scriptures. .Doubleday & Company, Inc. Garde n City, N.Y. 1952. P. 137.
    .
    Furthermore, Josephus preserves the NAME of the Queen of Sheba in his "Antiquities of the Jew s":
    .
    I suppose also that Herodotus of Halicarnassus, when he said there were three hundred and thi rty kings of Egypt after Menes, who built Memphis, did therefore not tell us their names, bec ause they were in common called Pharaohs; for when after their death there was a queen reigne d, HE CALLS HER BY HER NAME NICAULE....I have discovered from my own books, that after pharao h, the father-in-law of Solomon, no other king of Egypt did any longer use that name; and tha t it was after that time when the FORE-NAMED QUEEN OF SHEBA [NICAULE] came to Solomon.-- Boo k VIII, chapter vi, part 2.



    Anybody with an understanding of philology (historical and comparative linguistics) would imm ediately recognize in the name NICAULE (NIKAULE in Greek) a form of the Egyptian MAEKAURE -th e PRENOMEN OF HATSHEPSUT!
    .
    This evidence (and other which I don't have room for here) proves beyond a shadow of a doub t that Queen Hatshepsut of the 18th Dynasty was the Queen of Sheba who visited Solomon in Jer usalem.
    .
    We learn from the Bible that Solomon was not adverse to having children by foreign women and , according to Ethiopian history, the Queen of Sheba (Hatshepsut) married King Solomon and pr oduced a son. "The Ethiopian Royal Chronicles record that Prince MENELIK I. of Ethiopia was t he son of Solomon and the Queen of Sheba. He lived in the palace in Jerusalem and while bein g educated by the priests of the Temple he became a strong believer in Jehovah." ("Armageddon : Appointment with Destiny," by Grant R. Jeffrey. Bantam Books, 1990. P. 113).
    .
    In the September, 1935 issue of the "National Geographic" magazine, an article appeared recou nting this same story. Priests in different parts of Ethiopia told the author, L. Roberts, th at the Queen of Sheba had visited Solomon in Jerusalem and bore him a child. According to thi s article: "Solomon educated the lad in Jerusalem until he was nineteen years old. The boy th en returned to Ethiopia with a large group of JEWS..." This son of Solomon and Hatshepsut, hi mself part Jewish, founded the longest-living monarchy in history when he returned to Ethiopi a.
    .
    The descendants of the Jews who accompanied him to Ethiopia formed the ruling class during th e greater part of the country's history, and are known today as "Falasha" Jews. "The dynast y from Solomon and the Queen of Sheba [through their son Menelik] ruled continuously until th e twelfth century. The Abyssinian Royal Chronicles record that the Jewish Ethiopian kingdom w as still being ruled by a Falasha Queen Judith about A.D. 950 and continued for two centuries . For several hundred years following a Muslim invasion in the twelfth century, the Muslims t hen ruled most of Ethiopia. Finally the original Solomonic dynasty was reestablished in A.D . 1558 by a Jewish king and continued until Emperor Haile Selassie." ("Armageddon: Appointmen t with Destiny," pp. 115-116).
    .
    When Ethiopia was taken over by a Communist coup in 1974, the royal line from Solomon and Hat shepsut came to an abrupt end and Emperor Haile Selassie was imprisoned. He later died and wa s buried in an unknown grave. Some of his descendants managed to escape from the country an d are now living in the West. THIS LINE OF DAVID, THE ONLY ONE TO CARRY ON BEYOND THE DESTRUC TION OF JERUSALEM BY NEBUCHADNEZZAR, IS NOW DEFUNCT AND "CAST DOWN...TO THE GROUND." This onc e again shows that God's promise to David was CONDITIONAL and dependent upon the actions of h is sons.
    .
    Astonishing New Evidence -- David Visited Ireland!
    ,
    On the Ordnance Survey maps of Ireland there is an area three miles north of Tara Hill and on e and a half miles from the old Tara castle called "Dowd's Town" -- literally "DAVID'S TOWN. " How did this area receive its name?
    ,
    In the 29th chapter of Isaiah are some enigmatic verses that will take on a NEW MEANING in an swer to this question! Notice:
    Ah, ARIEL, ARIEL, THE CITY WHERE DAVID EN-CAMPED!
    Add ye year to year,
    Let the FEASTS come round!
    Then I will distress ARIEL,
    And there shall be mourning
    and moaning...(Jewish trans-lation).
    .
    If we go to the Septuagint translation of the Old Testament, these verses take on even more m eaning:.
    .
    Alas for the city ARIEL, which David BESIEGED. Gather ye fruits year by year; eat ye, for y e shall eat with Moab. For I will GRIEVOUSLY AFFLICT ARIEL: and her strength and her wealth s hall be mine. And I will COMPASS THEE ABOUT LIKE DAVID, and will RAISE A MOUND ABOUT THEE, an d SET UP TOWERS round thee. And thy words shall be brought down to the earth, and thy words s hall sink down to the earth, and thy voice shall be as they that speak out of the earth, an d thy voice shall be lowered to the ground. (Verses 1-4).
    .
    Herman L. Hoeh notes that this prophecy refers to the House of Israel:
    .
    The climax of the prophecy is the time of divine intervention in all human affairs. But why s hould the "city where David encamped" symbolize the center of government of the House of Isra el today? It is NOT a fitting expression for Jerusalem and Mt. Zion, for David did more tha n encamp there. He DWELT AND RULED THERE! Notice further the name ARIEL. Here is a city wit h the name Ariel. It symbolizes the same people as does Mt. Zion in prophecy, but it is NOT M t. Zion. It is only a place where David ENCAMPED.
    .
    Cities in early times often changed names, or were given different names, due to famous men w ho restored or rebuilt the sites, or to men who established the priority of their names i n a genealogical line. Take for example the change of the name of Aegialea to Sicyon in Greec e....Was there at TARA a famous king with the name of Ariel whose blood line rules today in t he British Royal Family? Indeed there was. Of four sons of Gede the Herimon, only the LINE O F IRIAL (Irish for Ariel) continued to rule from Tara. His name was as RARE in Irish histor y as the name DAVID was in Jewish history!
    .
    These scant evidences of history are more than mere coincidence. NO OTHER PLACE ON EARTH bear s the names of Eber, of Dan, of David, of Ariel. -- "Compendium of World History." Vol. I. Am bassador College, Pasadena, CA. 1963. Pp. 426-427.
    .
    If we study the king lists in the "Annals of the Kingdom of Ireland," by the Four Masters, w e find that the sixth Milesian king of Ireland was named IRIAL Faidh. He ruled from 1414 B.C . to 1404 B.C., and was the first of the Irish kings to FORTIFY AND BUILD EMBANKMENTS aroun d the city of Tara. He also cleared the plains and built forts throughout the land. Because o f his fame, Tara was named after him for a period of time.
    .
    Obviously then, this city of Ariel was the city of Tara -- the city which King David besieged ! It is no accident that the area three miles from the hill of Tara in Ireland is known as "D avid's Town" or the "Settlement of David."
    .
    Now, if we examine the annals of Ireland we find ruling, in Ireland, AT THE SAME TIME AS KIN G DAVID OF ISRAEL, a famous king called OLLAMH FODHLA. In an article entitled Was Ollamh Fodh la King David of Israel?, I give convincing evidence that this Ollamh Fodhla was none other t han King David of Israel! According to most of the histories the name Ollamh Fodhla means th e "Ollamh" or chief POET of "Fodhla" or Ireland. However, the word Ollamh -- pronounced "Olla v" -- bears a striking resemblance to the Hebrew word "olam" which means "forever" or "everla sting." Could not "Ollamh" Fodhla, then, mean "The Everlasting One of Ireland"? Could this b e a reference to David who was a TYPE of Christ -- the Everlasting One? Is this just a coinci dence?
    .
    This Ollamh Fodhla was the most famous king in Irish history; and he established institution s in the land which brought peace and prosperity to the people of Ireland. Thomas Moore, in h is book "The History of Ireland," reveals how OUTSTANDING this king was:
    .
    Among the numerous kings that, in this dim period of Irish history, pass like shadows befor e our eyes, THE ROYAL SAGE, OLLAMH FODHLA, is almost the ONLY ONE who, from the strong ligh t of tradition thrown round him, STANDS OUT as being of historical substance and truth. It wo uld serve to illustrate the nature and extent of the evidence with which the world is sometim es satisfied, to collect together the various celebrated names which are received as authenti c on the strength of tradition alone; and FEW, perhaps, could claim a more virtual title to t his privilege than the GREAT LEGISLATOR of the ancient Irish, OLLAMH FODHLA....(Longman, Brow n, Green & Longmans, London. 1846. P. 110.)
    .
    In "The Story of the Irish Race" we see how accomplished this king really was: "The legends i ndicate that he was a TRUE FATHER to his people, and an ABLE STATESMAN. He organized the nati on for efficiency -- dividing it into cantred, appointing a chief over every cantred, a bruga id (magistrate) over every territory, and a steward over every townland. Some traditions sa y that he established a School of Learning. And as a CROWNING GLORY he established the celebr ated Feis [FEAST] of Tara, the great triennial Parliament of the chiefs, the nobles, and th e scholars of the nation, which assembled on TARA HILL once every three years to settle the n ation's affairs. This great deliberative assembly, almost UNIQUE AMONG THE NATIONS in those e arly ages, and down into Christian times, reflected not little glory upon ancient Ireland." ( Seumas MacManus. The Devin-Adair Company, N.Y. 1949. P.15.)
    .
    This great feast of Tara fell in the FALL of the year and lasted for SEVEN DAYS! Some of th e Irish annals state that the Feast of Tara, as established by Ollamh Fodhla, was held EVER Y YEAR during his reign, and after his death was reduced to every three years -- finally fall ing into disuse. This yearly feast in the fall could only be the Feast of Tabernacles!



    Does the line of this Ollamh Fodhla (or David) reach down to Queen Elizabeth today -- uninter rupted and undiluted? Could Queen Elizabeth, after all, be descended from David by way of th e line of Ollamh Fodhla?

    After the death of Ollamh Fodhla, four of his sons ruled in succession over the land; then th e throne went to Bearnghal, grandson of Ollamh Fodhla through his son Gedhe Ollghothach. Gedh e was a warlike monarch; and there was continual fighting during his rule which led to a grea t scarcity of food throughout Ireland. After ruling for twelve years Bearnghal was slain by h is cousin Oilioll (son of Slanoll, the second reigning son of Ollamh Fodhla) in a CIVIL WAR t hat was supported by SIRNA OF THE HOUSE OF HEREMON, who was paving the way for his own takeov er of the throne.

    Did the end come to Ollamh Fodhla's line when Oilioll was killed by this Sirna (son of Dian ) in the sixteenth year of his (Oilioll's) reign? The "Annals of the Kingdom of Ireland" reve al that "It was this Sirna, son of Dian, that WRESTED the government of Teamhair [Tara] fro m the ULTA [line of Ollamh Fodhla]." Of this same event, the Annals of Clonmacnoise say tha t "Oilell was king 15 years, and then was slain by Siorna [Sirna] Mac Deyn (of the SEPT OF HE REMON), who was he that VIOLENTLY TOOK THE GOVERNMENT OF THE SCEPTRE OF THIS LAND FROM THE SE PT OF ULSTER."

    Some claim that a daughter of Ollamh Fodhla (David) -- or one of his sons or grandsons -- mar ried into the line of Heremon, thus healing the breach and making it possible for Queen Eliza beth to be descended from David. There is NO EVIDENCE of this ever happening, however. In ou r article, "Joseph of Arimathea and David's Throne in Britain" we show WHERE the breach was h ealed -- write for this exciting information about the LINE OF JOSEPH in Britain!
    .
    The bottom line is, though, that the reign of the Davidic line in Jerusalem is TEMPORARILY IN TERRUPTED. Another line of David, however, was established in the house of Israel in exile. N evertheless, the royal line of Judah (through Zarah) DID go to Ireland (during the time of Mo ses) in the person of Heremon, who was the son of Gathelus and the great-great-grandson of Ju dahthus fulfilling the prophecy in Genesis 49:10: "The scepter shall NOT depart from Judah, n or a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh comes...."
