biographical and/or anecdotal:

Macbeth siezed the throne of Scotland in 1040 after defeating and killing *Duncan I near Elgin.

He based his claim to the crown on his wife's royal descent (Duncan's former wife Sibyl).

Malcolm III, (son of Duncan I), and Earl Siward of Northumberland defeated Macbeth at

Dunsinane in 1054, but they did not dethrone him. Three years later, Malcolm III killed

Macbeth at Lumphanan. Macbeth's stepson Lulach reigned for a few months,

and then Malcolm III succeeded him as king.

William Shakespeare based his play, Macbeth, one of his greatest tragedies,

upon a distorted version of these events which he found in

Raphael Holinshed's 'Chronicle of Scottish History.'

The only kernel of historical truth in the play is Duncan's death at the hand of Macbeth.

From this fact, Shakespeare drew his portrait of ambition leading to a violent and tragic end.

Drosden Stone st_vigeans

This Celtic Pictish stone known as the Drosten Stone, which is found in the St. Vigeans museum in Scotland near Abroath and is dated to the 9th century, shows the symbols that appear at Gobekli including the boar, cat, vulture, dog, deer and bear. The boar appears on Celtic stones in the same way it appears at Gobekli Tepe. In the Dogon religion the Mistress of Speech, who was also known as the Seventh Ancestor, was symbolized by the donu bird, the fish, serpent, ostrich, deer, or gazelle. The arrow which appears on this stone is associated with the hunt, which I mentioned previously is a regeneration ritual in the Dogon religion. The Mistress of Speech (Seventh Ancestor) was the mistress of the hunt. I believe that the eagle was also a symbol of her in ancient religions. The dog, cat, dual serpents, fish, bird, eagle, goat, which was a symbol of the Jackal, and a dinosaur-like figure appear on this stone. The Celtic knotted image in the centre looks like a tunning fork.

The origins of the Picts are clouded with many fables, legends and fabrications, and there are as many theories as to who the Picts were (Celtic, Basque, Scythians, etc.), where they came from, what they ate or drank, and what language they spoke, as there once were Pictish raiders defying the mighty legions of Rome. Legend tells us, perhaps incorrectly, that Rome's mighty Ninth Legion, the famous "Hispana" legion, which had earned its battle honors in Iberia, conquering Celtic Spain for Caesar is never heard of again when faced against the Picts (they actually surfaced years later in Israel). We do know that the Picts may have spoken a non-Celtic language, (although many Celtophiles feel the Picts spoke a Brythonic-Gaulish form of Celtic language) as St. Columba's biographer clearly stated that the Irish saint needed a translator to preach to the Pictish King Brude, son of Maelchon, at Brude's court near the shores of Loch Ness. At other times the Pictish king lived at Scone, and we know there often were two separate Pictish kingdoms of Northern and Southern Picts. We know that they were mighty sailors, for the Romans feared the Pictish Navy almost as much as the wild men who came down from the Highlands to attack the villages along the wall. We also know that as far as the 9th century they wrote in stone a language which was not far in design from the Celtic "Ogham" script but was not Celtic in context, although Prof. Richard Cox thinks that it is Norse, which has really turned the carefully galvanized world of Pictish academic opinions upside down. By the legacy of their standing stones, we know that they were great artists as well. It is also well known that the Picts were one of Western culture's rare matrilinear societies; that is, bloodlines passed through the mother, and Pictish kings were not succeeded by their sons, but by their brothers or nephews or cousins as traced by the female line in (according to the scholar Dr. Anthony Jackson) a complicated series of intermarriages by seven royal houses.

 

It was this rare form of succession which in the year 845 A.D. gave the crown of Alba and the title Rex Pictorum to a Celtic Scot, son of a Pictish princess by the name of Kenneth, Son of Alpin. This Kenneth MacAlpin, whose father's kingship over the Scots had been earlier taken over by the Pictish king Oengus, who ruled as both king of Picts and Scots, and who possibly harbored a deep ethnic hatred for the Picts, and in the event known as "MacAlpin's Treason" murdered the members of the remaining seven royal houses thus preserving the Scottish line for kingship of Alba and the eventual erasure from history of the Pictish race, culture and history.

 

The true mystery in Pictish studies is the extraordinary disappearance of the culture of the tattoed nations of the North. The fact that within three generations of MacAlpin kings, the Picts were almost held in legendary status as a people of the past must be the real question to be answered, and the historian is consumed by legend, lack of facts and the nagging story of an obscure intrigue leading to genocide of a people, its customs, culture, laws and art.

 

It is in the sculptured stones of Scotland, left behind by the Pictish and proto-Pictish people of ancient Alba and present day Scotland that we can find some information about a mighty race of people who defied and defeated Rome and who slaughtered the invincible barbarian hordes of Angles Germans at Nechtansmere in Angus, and hammered the invading Vikings back home thus forever preserving a separate culture and race in Scotland. It is in these sometimes mighty, sometimes delicate stones that the history of ancient Scotland is now recorded. Were they descendants of the ancient Basque people of northern Spain once known to Rome as Pictones, who then migrated to northern Britain after they had helped the Empire defeat the seagoing people of Biscay? Or are they descendants of the dark tribes of ancient Stygia and the huge Eastern steepes? No one knows - only the Stones.

The Ulaid/Ui Neill of Ireland and the Ouled Nail of the Sahara Connection

by Moe | May 16, 2013 | History of the Brotherhood,

 

The Ulaid or Ulaidh (singular Ulad or Uladh), were a people of early Ireland who gave their name to the Irish Province of Ulster. They were also known as the Picts (Painted People) of Ireland and Scotland. The Kings of Ulster were of the Ulaid and Dál Riata who were a branch of the Érainn, also known as the Darini of Ptolemy, which is another name for the Ireland (Érin) royalty. These Semitic people had migrated to this land from the East approximately 2,700 years ago and are descendants of the Phoenicians, who we also know of today as the Hebrews. Another Ulaid related group were called the "Northern Ui Neill" who rose to power in west Ulster at a later date. They appear to be Vikings who had subjugated or united with the ancient royal families of the Ulaid.

Ouled Nail womenOn the other side of the world, there is another tribe with a very similar name to the Ulaid and Ui Neill. They are called the Ouled Nail (Ouled Nayl or Arabic: Awlad Na'il), who are a Berber people that are said to have originated in the "Montes des Ouled." Their territory is in the Saharan Desert in Algeria, from Biskra to Jelfa. The Ouled Nail have Caucasic features that are far finer than the average European or Caucasian, and are said to be a blend of the Hamites (Egyptian; Arabic) and Semites (Phoenician; Hebrew). One of the main cities of the Ouled Nail is Constantine, Algeria, which is named after emperor Constantine the Great who had rebuilt the city in 313 AD when he had defeated Roman Emperor Maxentius. The city was originally founded by the Phoenicians.

The Constantine connection of the Ouled Nail in Sahara and Algeria is very similar to the Ulaid people of Ireland and Scotland. When you combine Ulaid with Ui Neill it almost matches the tribe of the "Ouled Nail"of Algeria. But the connections do not stop here.

The emperor, Constantine the Great had rebuilt the city in Algeria where the Ouled Nail still live today. Over in Ireland and Scotland, a little while later we have descendants of Constantine in the territory of the Ulaid.  Constantine I of Scotland; in Latin “Constantín mac Fergusa” and in English “Constantine son of Fergus” was king of the Picts (or of Fortriu) in modern Scotland, from 789 until 820 and Cusantin mac Aeda who is Constantine II, the king of the Picts who died  in 877.

These two tribes not only have very similar names in Ulaid and Ouled, and with both of their leaders being called 'Constantine'; they both had practiced the ancient art of tattooing as well. The Ulaid of Ireland and Scotland were also known as the Picts (the painted people) because they were heavily tattooed from head to toe. The Ouled Nail of the Sahara had also practiced the art of tattooing, and they actually still tattoo themselves to this very day.

The Ulaid (Picts) religious customs and their secret society were led by a priestly class called the Druid Bards who were the successors of their ancestors, the Phoenician Bards. The Druids were master poets who often concealed their secret teachings orally in their poems and by the time they were 20 years old, they were said to have mastered by memory only, over 20,000 poems. Women were also allowed to be Druids as well. The Druids often held ceremonies sometimes lasting a week-long, involving lots of dancing, partying and sex. The Druids are even alleged to have circular dance parties that had occurred at Stonehenge. This ancient druidical custom of the practice of dancing in a circles around stones or oak trees continues to this day, with the month of May celebrations of dancing around what we call today, the May-pole.

The Ouled Nail women were and still are master dancers, the originators of the belly dance and also poets. They earn their income from dancing and also through the ancient sex trade known as prostitution. The Ouled Nail teach their children these ancient art forms of seduction for an income at a very young age, and in which they still make a living by these means to this very day.

 

In the early 1900's, Ted Shawn, the famous American dancer had witnessed the dance of the Ouled Nail and wrote; "It is not a suggestive dance for the simple reason that it leaves nothing to the imagination, and because of this unashamed animality, revolts the average white tourist to the point of being unable to admire the phenomenal mastery which these women have of parts of the body over which have no voluntary control at all."

Both the Druids of Ulaid and Ouled Nails of the Sahara also had worn similar jewelery during religious ceremonies. The Druids of Gaul, according to Strabo, wore gold necklaces and bracelets. The Ouled Nail women also wear a lot of jewelry such as earings, rings, necklaces made of coins they had earned, and bracelets with 1-2 inch spikes that they used as weapons to protect themselves.

Are all these similarities a coincidence, or is this an actual connection between two tribes of people in two very different areas of the world? I do not know about you, but my intuition and research seems to easily prove the latter.
