Fair Rosamond – A Literary Theme

In 1997 I read ‘Fair Rosamond a study of the development of a literary theme’
by Virgil B. Heltzel.

This book listed around 160 poems, novels, novelettes, and plays where Rosamond Clifford ‘Rose of the World’ is the subject. In the Templar groups I was evicted from, I claimed I was only studying my family genealogy – our rosy theme – and did not subscribe to the Sinclair claim, only that I had married Maryann Thoraldson, who was kin to Eric the Red and Leif Ericson, via from Thorvald Asvaldsson which my wife’s maiden names stems. I submitted this Literary Thema as evidence in Christine Rosamond Benton’s probate, that I was the one destined to carry on the search for our Rose Line Grail – that some say is a bloodline! Fair Rosamond descends from Vikings.

I angered folks because according to the themes of their study and books, I am THE ONE! They thought I was guilty of spiritual arrogance, because they only went so far as to claim they own “GNOSTIC SECRETS” which was the cowards way of saying “I AM THE ONE!”

The Viking came, saw, and took! Rena Christiansen also has Viking Blood, which tells me these Rangars took home the Best of the Best, the Fairest Maidens in all the land!

The name, Maryann, is a Marion name. Not able to conceive, she and her husband adopted a blond boy whom they name Eric, and a Eskimo, a Skhaeling. Then, out of nowhere they born Brigit, my step-daughter, who at thirteen chose me over he father, when the Judge asked who she preferred to be with! No family member has shown me such loyalty!

There already exist two books about my late sister, the world famous artist ‘Rosamond’ and two screenplays. Here is the continuation of the Literary Theme I presented to a Superior Court in Monterey, and was utterly ignored due to the attention my brother got when he claimed $3,000 dollars from the probate! He lent the Rose of the World money – and wanted it all when she died! Here is your Judas Loan Shark – a chip off the ol block!

Erik Thorvaldsson (Old Norse: Eirīkr Þōrvaldsson; 950 – c. 1003 CE), known as Erik the Red (Old Norse: Eirīkr hinn rauði[1]), is remembered in medieval and Icelandic saga sources as having founded the first Nordic settlement in Greenland. The Icelandic tradition indicates that he was born in the Jæren district of Rogaland, Norway, as the son of Thorvald Asvaldsson, he therefore also appears, patronymically, as Erik Thorvaldsson (Eiríkr Þorvaldsson). The appellation “the Red” most likely refers to his hair color.[2] Leif Ericson, the famous Icelandic explorer, was Erik’s son.

Thorvald Asvaldsson (Old Norse: Þōrvaldr Āsvaldsson) was the father of the colonizer of Greenland, Erik the Red, and grandfather of Leif Ericson, who visited North America centuries before Christopher Columbus. Thorvald’s father was Asvald Ulfsson, whose father was Ulf Oxen-Thorisson, whose father was Oxen-Thorir, brother of Naddodd, discoverer of Iceland.

Thorvald Asvaldsson was born in Norway. He was exiled from Norway c. 960, during the reign of King Harald Fairhair, because he had committed murder. He fled with his son Erik to northwest Iceland, where he died before 980.

Rosamund Clifford (before 1150 – c. 1176), often called “The Fair Rosamund” or the “Rose of the World”, was famed for her beauty and was a mistress of King Henry II of England, famous in English folklore.
Rosamund was the daughter of the marcher lord Walter de Clifford and his wife Margaret Isobel de Tosny (referred to as “de Toeni” on the Page of her husband, Walter de Clifford). Walter was originally known as Walter Fitz Richard, but his name was gradually changed to that of his major holding, first as steward, then as lord. This was Clifford Castle on the River Wye.
Rosamund had two sisters, Amice and Lucy. Amice married Osbern fitz Hugh of Richard’s Castle and Lucy Hugh de Say of Stokesay. She also had three brothers, Walter II de Clifford, Richard and Gilbert.
Rosamund probably first met the King when he passed by Clifford Castle in 1163 during one of his campaigns in Wales against Rhys ap Gruffydd.
Her name, Rosamund, may have been influenced by the Latin phrase rosa mundi, which means “rose of the world.”[1]

This chapter exposes the dragon bloodline more than a thousand years after Jesus Prophesied/Ordained the destruction of Jerusalem. It shows that the Rus were part and parcel with the Franks in forming the Templars, and this supports my findings that Franks and Russians were from the same stock of peoples: the Redones. It’s up to you to decide whether the Templars came to inhabit the city in His good will, or whether they were attempting to do their own. My mind is definitely made up.

The so-called “Rose Line” has been said to be the bloodline of Jesus Christ (via intimate relations with Mary Magdalene) that, through the centuries, came to produce the three brothers above. I don’t believe the Jesus-and-Magdalene part of the claim, of course, which is thought to be a claim peculiar to the Merovingians, but I do believe that the Rose Line existed. I’m not so sure that these French brothers had as much to do with the Line as others did, namely the descendants of Rollo the Viking. I have not heard of anyone attaching the Rose Line or the Rosicrucians to the Scandinavians, which is why I view it as a Ros Line; keep in mind, therefore, as you read this chapter, that it’s my personal theory/discovery. It’s a key that led me to discover the deepest roots of the Rosicrucians.

One could therefore conjecture that the ultimate Norman purpose in the heart of the Mediterranean was to pave an eastward Norman road to Jerusalem…and that the first Crusade (1096) was spurred first and foremost by that Norman agenda. The rising up of the Bouillon circle of French fighters then becomes a competitive response to the Norman vision.
In this light, I can make a suggestion to all who perceive the Rose Line as stemming through the Merovingian Franks (i.e. to the De Bouillon family): that’s only a part of the story, while another part is the Scandinavian right to the Rose-Line agenda, just as much or more than the Merovingians. Those who would buck against this suggestion should know that the Merovingians worshipped Odin and other gods worshiped by the Scandinavians. That is, both peoples shared the same roots.
The Viking army settled in southern Italy had attacked the papal powers and the Byzantine empire virtually all at once, and this seems a strike at world rulership. Guiscard had defeated the Vatican (1053) but thereafter made peace with a new Pope in order to have little to fear in Italy while waging war in Byzantine regions. Back in the north, other Normans were active militarily and were proving quite successful in Britain and on the French mainland. Had the Byzantines not made an alliance with the Varangian Rus of proto-Russia (who were themselves from Sweden), the Scandinavians just may have conquered the world at that time. As it turned out, the Varangian Rus fought against the Italian Normans on behalf of the Byzantines.

[edit] Victor at Hastings in 1066
He is one of the very few proven Companions of William the Conqueror known to have fought at the Battle of Hastings in 1066.[3]. Tradition says he gave up the role of standard bearer, his hereditary office, to Walter Giffard, in order to be able to fight closer to William, duke of Normandy.[4]
[edit] Marriage
He married Isabel de Montfort, daughter of Simon I de Montfort. There was a feud with Guillaume d’Evreux and his wife Helvise de Nevers, recorded by Ordericus Vitalis.[5] This came to open war in 1091–92, when Guillaume attacked Conches. A settlement was reached.[6] They later co-operated in attacking Robert de Beaumont, 1st Earl of Leicester’s county of Meulan.
[edit] In England
He had widely spread holdings, as recorded in the Domesday Survey. His seat was at Flamstead in Hertfordshire.[7] He held Clifford Castle.It is also believed that he held assets in the village of Hose, Leicestershire which was split into two manors, Tosny’s and that of the title holder of the Norman Belvoir Castle.
[edit] Family
Robert de Stafford was his brother.
His second son, Raoul III de Conches, was his surviving heir. He married Alice of Huntingdon, daughter of Waltheof, Earl of Northumbria and Judith of Lens.[8]
His daughter Godehilde married Baldwin I of Jerusalem.

From Wikipedia – Rognvald Eysteinsson :

Rognvald “The Wise” Eysteinsson (son of Eystein Ivarsson ) is the founder of the Earldom of Orkney in the Norse Sagas . Three quite different accounts of the creation of the Norse earldom on Orkney and Shetland exist. The best known is that found in the Heimskringla , but other older traditions are found in the Historia Norvegiae and the Fragmentary Annals of Ireland .

Sagas
The saga accounts are the best known, and the latest, of the three surviving traditions concerning Rognvald and the foundation of the Earldom of Orkney. Recorded in the 13th century, their views are informed by Norwegian politics of the day. Once, historians could write that no-one denied the reality of Harald Fairhair ‘s expeditions to the west recounted in Heimskringla, but this is no longer the case. The Norwegian contest with the Kings of Scots over the Hebrides and the Isle of Man in the middle 13th century underlies the sagas.[1]

In the Heimskringla, Rognvald is Earl of Møre . He accompanies Harald Fairhair on his great expeditions to the west, to Ireland and to Scotland . Here, Rognvald’s son Ivarr is killed. In compensation King Harald grants Rognvald Orkney and Shetland. Rognvald himself returns to Norway , giving the northern isles to his brother Sigurd Eysteinsson .[2]

The Heimskringla recounts other tales of Rognvald. It tells how he causes Harald Finehair to be given his byname Fairhair by cutting and dressing his hair, which had been uncut for ten years on account of Harald’s vow never to cut it until he was ruler of all Norway,[3] and it makes him the father of Ganger-Hrólf, identified by saga writers with the Rollo (Hrólfr), ancestor of the Dukes of Normandy , who was said to have been established as Count of Rouen by King Charles the Simple in 931.[4]

Earl Rognvald is killed by Harald’s son Halfdan Hålegg. Rognvald’s death is avenged by his son, Earl Turf-Einar , from whom later Orkney earls claimed descent, who kills Halfdan on North Ronaldsay .[5]

Historia Norvegiae
The Historia Norvegiae’s account of Rognvald and the foundation of the Orkney earldom is the next oldest, probably dating from the 12th century. This account contains much curious detail on Orkney, including the earliest account of the Picts as small people who hid in the daytime, but it has little to say about Rognvald.

In the days of Harald Fairhair, king of Norway, certain pirates, of the family of the most vigorous prince Ronald [Rognvald], set out with a great fleet, and crossed the Solundic sea…, and subdued the islands to themselves. And being there provided with safe winter seats, they went in summer-time working tyranny upon the English, and the Scots, and sometimes also upon the Irish, so that they took under their rule, from England, Northumbria ; from Scotland, Caithness ; from Ireland, Dublin , and the other sea-side towns.[6]
This account does not associate Rognvald with the earldom, but instead attributes it to his anonymous kinfolk.

Fragmentary Annals of Ireland

The oldest account of the Rognvald and the earldom of Orkney is that found in the Fragmentary Annals of Ireland. The annals survive only in incomplete copies made by Dubhaltach Mac Fhirbhisigh in the 17th century, but the original annals are believed to date from the lifetime of Donnchad mac Gilla Pátraic (died 1039). The annals are known to have had an influence on later writings in Iceland .

The annals make Rognvald the son of “Halfdan, King of Lochlann “. This is generally understood to mean Halfdan the Black , which would make the Rognvald of the annals the brother of Harald Finehair. However, the sagas claim that Rognvald’s grandfather was named Halfdan.[7]

These events are placed after an account of the devastation of Fortriu , dated to around 866,[8] and the fall of York, reliably dated to late 867. However, such an early date makes it difficult to reconcile the saga claims that Harald Fairhair was involved in Rognvald’s conquest of the northern isles.

Harald Finehair’s victory in the Battle of Hafrsfjord , which gave him dominion over parts of Norway, is traditionally dated to 872, but was probably later, perhaps as late as 900.[9] What little is known of Scottish events in the period from the Chronicle of the Kings of Alba would correspond equally well with Harald’s attacks on Scotland in the reign of Domnall mac Causantín (ruled 889-900).[10] However, this would not correspond with the sequence in the earliest account of the origins of the Orkney earldom, which places this a generation earlier.
Ragnvald married Ragnhild Hrolfsdatter 17 18 19 about 867 in Maer, Nord-Trondelag, Norway. Ragnhild was born about 857 in .

1 Response to Fair Rosamond – A Literary Theme

  1. Reblogged this on rosamondpress and commented:

    The father of our author was Geoffroy de la Tour, spoken of at the beginning of the fourteenth century as lord of La Tour-Landry, Bourmont, La Galonière Loroux-Bottereau, and Cornouaille, and who, under the banner of the Count of Anjou in 1336, distinguished himself by his courage in the war with the English.”

    Below is Albrecht Dürer’s painting of a Knight coming home from the Crusades. Did he find the Holy Grail? Is it only when we find our way home again, do we find what was lost?

    Albrecht Dürer did the illustrations for Landry’s work. I am this Knight Le Rouge. I did not forsake my Quest even though most of my friends and all my family, forsake me. I had a vision. I stuck to it. I am the Author of this Red Opera.
