The Lords of Til-Chatel and Rougemont descend from the Merovingians via Garnier, Count of Troyes. There is a Gendolfus in this line, and Nibelung “the historian”. Much of the history of the Franks is myth that influenced J.R. Tolkein. The Franks claim they descend from the Kings and Queens of Troy, thus the city names of Paris and Troyes.
Many authors claime the Knight Templars descend from the Franks, but, there is no evidence of this link – until now!
I can go anywhere with my genealogical research. Anywhere! The love story of Pharamond and Rosamond is at the very root of Western Storytelling.
I saw myself as Strider as a young man. I behold Rena as the epitone of the Rosamonds. My personal myth has no bounds. I have overcome the Western World!

The Lords of the place have their origins ofAudón I of Til-Châtel, son of Garnier, count of Troyes which found the signature in an act of Richard, Duke of Burgundy, dated 918. They pay tribute to the Dukes of Burgundy.
Til-Châtel family members will follow one another until 1299, date to which the name blends into the family of Rougemont through Til-Châtel Jeanne, daughter of Guy III of Til-Châtel. At the end of the 15th century, the last of the Rougemont, absence descendants, ceded the seigniory to Antoine de Baissey, which immediately paid tribute to the Bishop of Langres

The Frankish mythology that has survived in primary sources is comparable to that of the Aeneas and Romulus myths take in Roman mythology, but altered to suit Germanic tastes. Like many Germanic peoples, the Franks told a founding myth story to explain their connection with peoples of classical history. In the case of the Franks, these peoples were the Sicambri and the Trojans. An anonymous work of 727 called Liber Historiae Francorum states that following the fall of Troy, 12,000 Trojans led by chiefs Priam and Antenor moved to the Tanais (Don) river, settled in Pannonia near the Sea of Azov and founded a city called “Sicambria”. In just two generations (Priam and his son Marcomer) from the fall of Troy (by modern scholars dated in the late Bronze Age) they arrive in the late 4th century AD at the Rhine
When writing The Hobbit in the early 1930s Tolkien gave the name Gandalf to the leader of the Dwarves, the character later called Thorin Oakenshield. The name is taken from the same source as all the other Dwarf names (save Balin) in The Hobbit: the “Catalogue of Dwarves” in the Völuspá. The Old Norse name Gandalfr incorporates the words gandr meaning “wand”, “staff” or (especially in compounds) “magic” and álfr “elf”. The name Gandalf is found in at least one more place in Norse myth, in the semihistorical Heimskringla, which briefly describes Gandalf Alfgeirsson, a legendary Norse king from Eastern Norway and rival of Halfdan the Black.
Odin, the Wanderer (1886) by Georg von Rosen (1843–1923)
“Odin disguised as a Traveller” from 1914.
The name “Gandolf” occurs as a character in William Morris’ 1896 fantasy novel The Well at the World’s End. Morris’ book is a multi-part ‘magical journey’ involving elves, dwarves and kings in a pseudo-medieval landscape which is known to have deeply influenced Tolkien.
The wizard that was to become Gandalf was originally named Bladorthin. Tolkien later assigned this name to an ancient king who had ordered some spears from the dwarves.

The name Rosamund means “horse protection”. The names Hengest and
Horsa means “stallion” and “stud” respectively. These twin brothers
were Jutes from Jutland where the Cimmerians came to dwell. Gauthier
de Costes de la Calprenede is said to have written the first historic
romance novel when 1668 he compiled the history of the Merovingian
Frankish Kings in ‘Faramond’. Within we have an account of
Pharamond’s love for Rosemonde, the Cambrian princess whose tribe,
the Cimri, are mentioned in the Bible, they associated with the Royal
Scythians and the people of the ‘Prince of Rosh’ that Ezekiel
prophecised against in chaper 38. They are the horseman of the
Russian Steppes who would form the Celtic peoples when they moved
west. The ancestors of the Merovingians are kin to the Cimri, who
they chased into Asia, all the way to Ceylon India. The Royal Scots
claim in the ‘Arbroath’ they are descended from theCimri, a name that
means “red”, or “rouge”.
“That which I was obliged to tell you of the beauty of Rosemonde,
inrecounting to you what fashion she appeared to the eyes of my
master, hindered me from extending something upon that of Albisinda:
but Imay tell you with truth, that if Rosemonde were not in the
world, perhaps there would be nothing more beautiful then that
Princess; and that next to Rosemonde, she has those particular
charms, which nothing can withstand: she has without doubt has less
splendor and Majesty than the Princess of the Cambrians.”
“Pharamond was a legendary Frankish king, possibly a historical ruler
of the fifth century. His life parallels that of Vortigern and
Arthur. Indeed, one can make a case Arthur was modeled after
Pharamond. In Arthurian romance he was a freedman (a slave who had
been setfree) who seized the French throne. He came in disguise to
Arthur’s court, for Arthur was an enemy, but his disguise was
penetrated. His daughter, Belide, was enamored of Tristan, who did
not requite herpassion, thereby causing her to die of a broken heart.
Pharamond provided a refuge for Tristan and Gorvenal after the of
Meliodas. Ariosto tells us that Tristan defeated Pharamond’s son,
Clodion, in combat . According to a non-Arthurian romance of the
seventeenth century, Pharamond was enamored of Rosemonde, daughter of
the King of the Cimbri. Gauthier de Costes de la Calprenede is the
said father/inventor of Historic-Romance, and his ‘Pharamond’ has
Rosemonde as the centerpiece of his story. ”
I am looking at the possibility Rosamund ‘Hrosmund’ is kin to the
horse goddess, Epona for the fact reliefs of her were nailed to the
centerpost of barns, and fresh garlands of roses hung about her image
for protection of the barns and the horses within. This may be the
source of the Rosary, a means of protection from the plague. Barns
were prone to catch barn due to lightening strikes and spontaneous
If history in the last two thousands years had been written by
horses, rather then by the celebate fathers of Saint Paul, the lying
Pharisee for the Herodians, then one would behold the origional
Nazarite church going forth on horseback to all parts of the world,
even China, spreading the teaching of the Parthian ‘King of Kings’.
The Chinese called the Parthian horses “dragons”, no doubt Rouge
Dragaons of the Scythians and Cimri.
One author associates the Cimmerians to Tolkien’s horseman of Rohan.
Another suggestes the Cimri are the ‘Rose Line’ made famous by Dan
Brown. Allow me to tweak his code device, and reveal to you the APPLE
is a member of the ROSE family, and thus as a MAGIcian, I turn the
apple into a rose. Now, whom PROTECTED this real ROSELINE?
Pharamond King of FRANCE Pharamond Lord of the West FRANKS (b. 380, d. 428)
Pharamond Lord of the West FRANKS (son of Marcomir Duke Of The East FRANKS and Hatilde (Princess) of FRANKS) was born 380 in Westphallia, Germany, and died 428. He married Argotta (Rosamunde) Queen of FRANKS.
Aragorn II, son of Arathorn is a fictional character from J. R. R. Tolkien’s legendarium. He is one of the protagonists of The Lord of the Rings. Aragorn was a Ranger of the North, first introduced with the name Strider at Bree, as the Hobbits continued to call him throughout The Lord of the Rings. He was eventually discovered to be the heir of Isildur and rightful claimant to the thrones of Arnor and Gondor. He was also a confidant of Gandalf and an integral part of the quest to destroy the One Ring and defeat the Dark Lord Sauron.
In J. R. R. Tolkien’s legendarium, the Rangers of the North, also known as the Dúnedain of the North, were the descendants of the Dúnedain from the lost kingdom of Arnor. Their menfolk ceaselessly patrolled the boundaries of Eriador and were by necessity skilled with the sword, bow and spear.
The Rangers were grim in life, appearance, and dress, choosing to wear rusty green and brown. The Rangers of the Grey Company (see below) were dressed in dark grey cloaks and openly wore a silver brooch shaped like a pointed star during the War of the Ring. These Rangers rode rough-haired, sturdy horses, were helmeted and carried shields. Their armament included spears and bows.
Rosamond and Female Line begot Franks
The male line from Pharamond to Merovee is traced from
Rosamond/Argotta and her daughters. Rosamond was an heiress, the
daughter of the Frankish King, Genobald. That the heiress, Jeanne de
Rougemont, one of four daughters of Ulrich de Rougemont, begot the
Habsburgs, and from Rougemont comes the name Rosamond, is profound,
as Jesus’ mother has been titled the ‘Rose of the World’. Some
authors claim the Habsburgs descend from Jesus’s brother,
James/Jacob the Nazarite, who I claim were a ‘race of prophets’.
This puts the name Rosamond at the apex of the Grail liniage.
“note: the first three Frankish kings, Faramond, Chlodio, and
Merovee, were NOT father, son, & grandson, as they appear in
traditional genealogies, but rather each came from different
families, and are connected by marriages and/or female-links. the
Salic Law was not introduced until the time of Clovis I “The Great”,
from whom all succeeding Merovingian kings sprang. the traditional
genealogy of his descendants, the Merovingians, should be re-edited
to show that Thibert I, King East Franks 534-548, & Thibaut, King
East Franks 548-555, were NOT father and son, but brothers. too,
another side-bar, Caribert II, King West Franks 629, was father of
Chilperic (d632), father of Childebrand, father of a son, Clodulphe,
Duke of Austrasia (d718), &, a dau, Chalpaida, 3rd wife of Pepin II,
Major Domo of France.

Early Frankish Kings
by RDAVIDHUGHES1@[EMAIL PROTECTED] (David Hughes) Apr 30, 2004 at
The outbreak of civil war in Gaul in Year 451 obliged Ambrosius to
postpone his planned expedition to Britain. The civil war was among
the Franks between two claimants to the Frankish kingship, namely,
Clodoric [son of Chlodio, King of the Franks, and Pharamond’s
daughter] and his half-brother, Merovee [son of Pharamond’s daughter
and her first husband, a Roman prefect]. Pharamond [Faramond],
sometimes called the first King of the Franks, is an interesting
person with an even more interesting pedigree. His father was
Frotmund, the Duke of Provence, representing a “desposynic” descent-
line [the cousin of the Prefect of Viennensis; and their cousin, the
Marquis of Septimania, who represented a third branch of
the “Kyriakon” Family]. His mother was a Frankish princess, Hatilde,
daughter and only child of Himbald, King of the Franks, mentioned in
the “HRB” as the contemporary of the Roman Emperor Maximus.
Pharamond [Faramond], of his first wife, Imbegride, the daughter of
Basogast, a Frankish prince, begot a son, whose name is unsure, who
was murdered upon his father’s death in 428 by rival claimants to
the Frankish kingship; and, of his second wife, Rosamunde [also
called Argotta], daughter of Genobald, King of the Franks, begot two
daughters: Argotta [also called Siegse] [wife of Chlodio, King of
France; his third marriage, her second marriage] and Belizde [wife
of Gundicar (Gunther), King of Burgundy]. Argotta [Siegse] was
called “the ancestress of the French royal line” as the mother of
Merovee [after whom the Merovingians, the first French dynasty, take
their name], the founder of the first royal house of France. The
father of Merovee, the first husband of the Frankish heiress,
Argotta [Siegse], was Quintus Tarus [d438], Prefect of Province, who
descended from another desposynic descent-line [not from ancient
Trojan kings, which is a medieval invention]. Argotta, the Judeo-
Frankish princess, was the mother of three sons of her second
husband, the Anglo-Gothic prince, Chlodio, of the Balthae Dynasty
[identified with the Lombardic king Letho], namely, Cloderic [rival
claimant], Gunderic [King of Burgundy], and Childeric I [King of
France]; the three half-brothers of Claffo [King of Lombardy], the
son of Chlodio and his second wife, name unsure, a Lombardic
princess. Her sister, Belizde (Bellicies), killed herself in a
failed marriage. The confusion in the early genealogy of the
Merovingian kings is notable when comparing the various genealogical-
data given by early medieval writers.
Gauthier de Costes de la Calprenede is said to have written the first
historic romance novel when 1668 he compiled the history of the
Merovingian Frankish Kings in his monumental work ‘Pharamond’. Within
we have an account of Pharamond’s love for Rosemonde, the Cambrian
princess whose tribe, the Cimri, are mentioned in the Bible, they
associated with the Royal Scythians and the people of the ‘Prince of
Rosh’ that Ezekiel prophecised against in chaper 38. They are the
horseman of the Russian Steppes who would form the Celtic peoples
when they moved west. The ancestors of the Merovingians are kin to
the Cimri, who they chased into Asia, all the way to Ceylon India.
They are more then likely the Tocharain people who traveled the Silk
Road, and whose mummies are now being unearthed.
Notes for Pharamond Lord of the West FRANKS:
AKA Faramund (Pharamond) of the GRAIL-KING
PHARAMOND, KING OF ALL FRANKS & keeper of the Grail lineage.
Under Pharamond reign the Franks were united under one crown. He succeeded his father as Duke of the East Franks in 404 A.D.; became King of the West Franks in 419 A.D. and King of Westphalia in 420 A.D. He married Argotta, daughter of Grimald, Duke of the West Franks, in 409 A.D. At his father-in- law’s death in 419 A.D., Pharamond became Duke of the West Franks
Note: 1. Pharamond, Duke of the East Franks, 404 A.D., elected King ofthe West
Franks, 419, died in 430, 16th in descent from Boadicea. He married
Argotta, “the mother of all the kings of France.” They were the great
great grandparents of Clovis. He was descended 13 generations from
Athildis, who married in 129 A.D. Marcomir IV., King ofFranconia, who
died in 149. Athildis was the daughter of “Old King Cole,” known also as
Colius I., who died in 170 A.D. He was educated in Rome, King ofBritain
in 125. Colius I. was the son of Marius
Note: This lineage comprises the mythical “Fisher kings of the Holy Grail.” Faramund is the Merovingian King Pharamond, q.v., but his alleged pedigree in Fisher King myth is different from the traditional Merovingian myth.
