Godfrey de Bouillon Bogart and Rosemont


When I entered Christine’s home for the first time, Vicki and I sat in the living room. I asked about the large mural over the fireplace. Vicki got up and gave me a laminated piece of paper containing the history of this work depicting Godfrey de Bouillon entered Jerusalem. Godfrey has a foot on a dead Saracen. I had seen this work in the book ‘Holy Blood, Holy Grail’ a couple of months earlier. Vicki told me when our sister gave a tour of her home, she stopped before this work, and declared;

“And, this is my mad brother!”



If I had signed the agreement Tom Snyder sent me, I would not have been able to author anything about my late sister, thus, connect her to Godfrey and the Cuycks, who are a famous Dutch family, and thus, was a great interest to Henry Brevoort.


Hendrik ROELOF ROVER van RODE, geboren circa 1190, overleden vóór 1256, zoon van Roelof ROVER van RODE (zie II.1) en NN.
Gehuwd voor de kerk circa 1220 met Margaretha van CUIJCK, geboren circa 1200, overleden circa 1260, dochter van Albrecht van CUIJCK en Hadewich Rutgers van MERHEIM (Heilwich).
Ridder van Miertlo.

“Heilwig van Rode ?” The Niece of Godfrey de Bouillon
Ida of Boulogne was the sister of Godfrey de Boulogne. She married
Herman of Malsen van Cuijk/Cuyck. Their daughter, Heilwig, married
Arnold van Rode, thus the niece of Godfrey Bouillon was a van
Rode/Roesmont. Ida’s mother was Ida of Lorraine.

When my mother called Sydney Morris, he told her he and Stacey Pierrot were in Christine’s house the day before and had emptied it, but for a box of our family photos.

“Do you want them?” Bob Buck’s partner asked.

“Of course I want them!” answered Rosemary who is kin to the four generations of the Roover family – who are kin to the Rosemond family –  seen in the oldest surviving Dutch painting. They are paying homage to Our Lady that members of the Swan Brethren worshipped, including Hieronymus Bosh – and several generations of the Rosemont family. Gottstalk Rosemont, was the Master of the Falcon Art College. I recovered all this information. Those photos were going to be thrown away. Why? The ghost of Godfrey was watching every cunning move of ‘The Caretaker’ Morris would sell everything to. De Bouillon was standing next to the ghost of Christine Rosamond.

Pierrot was a front for Mark and Vicki Presco, and Garth Benton. The law office of Heisinger, Morris, Rose, and Buck, were around the corner from the Rosamond Gallery. Stacey&Sydney, were tight. They held pow-wows, and did lunch. Pierrot convinced Robert Brevoort Buck’s law partner, Shannon Rosamond and myself, were insane. She never met me. Mark backed Pierrot from THE SHADOWS.  I will be rendering his genealogy titled ‘The Evil Tree of Dark Mark’. He is the real Mad Brother!


There is a very good chance Bosch saw the painting of the Roover-Montfoort family at Janskirk. Their cote of arms is made up of the mills, the iron that holds the sails of the windmill. These arms are owned by the rulers of Toxandria. The Rosemondt’s owned Wolfswinkel House, a mill that run by water. The map of Montfoort depicts an ideal town that was carried to New Amsterdam, Harlem, and New York.

EXTRA! I just discovered Humphry Bogart and I are in the Roover-Montfort family tree! These talented folks will be going in my Rosy Dutch Family Tree. Every time I see a pic of Lauren Bacall, my heart skips a beat. Do you think these Movie Stars are happy to be in My Rosy Family Tree, or, would they prefer to be in Dark Mark’s Neo-Nazi bush of thorns?

Bogart is also kin to Godfrey de Bouillon in a more direct way. My grandfather was a writer who camped on the Channel Islands with Dashiell Hammett and other members of the Black Mask. The Maltese Falcon begins with fake history about the Knight Templars founded by Godfrey. This fiction proceeds the fiction of Dan Brown by fifty years.

I will show this video at my Sanity Hearing.

“My kindred drove me mad. I had to have her, because, I knew how to whistle! I am guilty of this, and nothing more! These royal people were a bad influence on me. I see Lauren seducing Godfrey before he conquered Jerusalem. Saladin had to have her – too! Holy Crusade – my ass!

For two thousand years writers have suggested Jesus could not resist Mary Magdalene. I hopped on the bandwagon so I would have money. I was poor. I wanted my daughter to love me. Instead, she sucked up to Vicki Presco and Daryl Bulkley who blessed Dark Mark and Tom Snyder – who wrote the worst book in human history! They made no money! Did I tell you my grandmother is Mary Magdalene Rosamond? I thought if I had money, people would stop calling me insane. Vicki told me Sydney Morris took a good long look at my letters I sent him – for a physical threat. He read my cryptic messages about our Rose Line that I sent him and the Judge Silver back in 1997 – and beyond! ”

M letters are written in the codex of Hardboiled Detective writer – with Bouillon and the Mona Lisa thrown in to stir up the pot. Note the date on my letter. The Da Vinci Code came out in 2003, four years later.

What became of this mural? Did Garth take it down and sell it?





Ghisburtus van Roesmont was a Dutch nobleman of some importance. His mother was jonkvrouw Adriana Theodorici ROVER. the daughter of Dirk Edmondszn ROOVER. The Roover family appears to descend from one of the Radbot rulers of Holland who was given the name Roover, or Rover due to conquest of the Netherlands. The Roover family would build Montroort castle one of the most prestigious castles in Holland. These two families were keen on forming a marriage alliance as Arnold Rover married Heilwigis Arnoldi Danielis ROESMONT. For this reason I suspect the Roesmont Wolf names came from Roelof the Roover R + Odilia van Montfoort. Perhaps the Roovers owned Wolfhouse where the Roesmonts came to live in 1450.

Ghisburtus was the master of Saint Janskerk, and a member of Lieve-Vrouwe-broederschap that met in Janskerk church. Hieronymus Bosch was a member of the Zwanenbroeders (swan brothers) and was commissioned by the master of Janskerk to do a stained-glass window for the church. The Zwanenbroeders commissioned Bosch to do other work the most important being ‘The Marriage Feast at Cana’. This painting has symbols that relate to the Zwanenbroeders and thus this painting may constitute the only true riddle involving a brotherhood of men and a supper where Jesus is centerpiece

The Memorial tablet for the lords of Montfoort is the oldest known surviving painting that was made in the Netherlands. The lords of Montfoort are shown between Mary and Saint George. From left to right these are: Jan I van Montfoort, his uncle Roelof de Rover, his uncle Willem de Rover, and presumably Hendrik de Rover Willemsz. The first three died along with William IV, Count of Holland at the Battle of Warns. The latter is held by Saint George. This signifies the fact that he was the only one of the four persons on the painting to have survived the battle.

The painting was restored in 1608 and 1770. The four personal arms symbols were added later. The painting was originally on the Mary-altar in the St. John’s church in Linschoten. Later it became part of a private collection, also in Linschoten. On 9 August 1884, the painting was donated to the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam, where it is still located.


The history of the van Cuyck family goes back to the 11th century. It begins with a man called Herman van Malsen. He married Ida of Boulogne, sister of the great Godfrey of Bouillon, daughter of Eustace II, Count of Boulogne, and (Saint) Ida of Lorraine. The family of Herman van Malsen held land in the Betuwe around Geldermalsen and Meteren. Receiving the Land of Cuijk as a fief from the Emperor, his descendants started to use the surname ‘van Cuyck’.

The van Cuyck family became an important family. They developed a very close relationship with the Dukes of Brabant, whom they represented on several occasions. In contrast, the relation with the Counts of Holland was more a problematic one, starting with the murder on Floris the Black, which caused eventually a loss of family lands in Rijnland. But overall the van Cuyck family was a family of high nobility, high ranking and very important on the political scene in Brabant, Holland, Gelre and the Holy Roman Empire.

At the beginning of the 14th century the Lords of Cuijk were at the height of their power. Jan I van Cuyck (+ 1308) was a top European diplomat in his time. He acted as ambassador, negotiator, counselor, arbiter, witness and combatant. Princes and kings employed his services. He ranked among the high nobility of his time. Jan’s son Otto van Cuyck (+ 1350) was the Duke of Brabant’s principal vassal and also became a pensioner of the English King Edward III. But Otto left behind a financial battlefield and his descendants were no longer able to maintain the important position of the Cuyck family. They lost power, had financial problems and quarrelled over possessions and land. In 1356 the Land of Cuijk became a fief of Brabant. Some time later the Lords of Cuijk got caught in the middle of a conflict between Brabant and Gelre and finally lost their land in 1400.

For a long time it was believed that this was the end of the Cuyck family, but recent research has shown that the Cuyck family that appears in Culemborg at the beginning of the 15th century is in fact related to the Lords of Cuijk. The Cuycks clearly took a fresh start, succeeded in increasing their possessions and developed again into an important family of politicians and functionaries, first in Culemborg, later in Utrecht. The success story continued. They were politicians, lawyers and respected scholars. One branch of the family founded a peat exploiting company. In the 17th century a branch of the family moved to Afferden, part of the Catholic Southern Netherlands. A century later they continued their history in present day Germany.

De molenijzers aan de zijden van de kasteel torens (in het wapen) zijn afkomstig van het geslacht De Rover en zo in het wapen van de stad Montfoort verwerkt. The mills on the sides of the castle towers (in the weapon) are derived from the genus De Rover and thus processed in the arms of the town of Montfoort.

Van Montfoort was een middeleeuws adellijk geslacht dat het bezit had van Montfoort en door de jaren heen meerdere heerlijkheden en ambachten in bezit kreeg, zoals Abbenbroek , Blokland , De Eng , Hekendorp , Heeswijk , Cattenbroek , Linschoten , Lange Linschoten , Linschoter Haar , Purmerend, Purmerland en Ilpendam , Rateles , Reyerscop , Snelrewaard , Velgersdijk , Vlooswijk , Waarder , Willeskoop , Wulverhorst en IJsselvere . Montfoort was a medieval noble generation owned by Montfoort and over the years had many glories and crafts, such as Abbenbroek , Blokland , The Eng , Hekendorp , Heeswijk , Cattenbroek , Linschoten , Lange Linschoten , Linschoter Haar , Purmerend, Purmerland and Ilpendam , Rateles , Reyerscop , Snelrewaard , Velgersdijk , Vlooswijk , Waarder , Willeskoop , Wulverhorst and IJsselvere .

Kasteel Montfoort werd vermoedelijk gebouwd tussen 1156 en 1178 als sterkte of burcht om de expansiedrift van het graafschap Holland tegen te gaan. Montfoort castle was presumably built between 1156 and 1178 as a strength or castle to counter the expansion of Holland ‘s county . De bisschop van Utrecht, Godfried van Rhenen , benoemde toen een persoon uit zijn ministerialiteit of een leenman om kastelein te worden van de sterkte om er op toe te zien dat de veiligheid in het zuiden van het Sticht Utrecht gewaarborgd bleef. The bishop of Utrecht, Godfried van Rhenen , then appointed a person from his ministeriality or a lender to become the cast of the strength to ensure that security in the south of the Stichting Utrecht remained secure. In een eeuw tijd waren er vier generaties kasteleinen. In a century there were four generations of castles. De laatste was Willem die een dochter genaamd Odila had. The latter was Willem who had a daughter named Odila. Zij huwde met Hendrik de Rover , afkomstig van een geslacht uit Vlaanderen . She married Hendrik de Rover , from a genus from Flanders . Dit geslacht wist meer roem te vergaren en bracht tien burggraven voort, tot het geslacht De Merode het overnam in 1545 . This gender was able to gain more fame and brought ten burggraven until the genus Merode took over in 1545 .

Stamwapen de Rover-van Montfoort Montfoort Rover-of-Arms

Vanaf 1260 was het duidelijk dat het geslacht de Rover zijn intrede had gedaan; From 1260 it was clear that the Rover’s gender had made its entry; het volgde een politiek die alle kanten op kon en zelfs familieruzies niet uit de weg ging. It followed a politics that could affect all sides and even family choices did not get out of the way. Zo was Zweder I een trouwe bondgenoot aan de bisschop van Utrecht, terwijl zijn broer Roeland bij de graaf van Holland in de gunst was gevallen en elkaar betwistten om het landgoed van Linschoten (1320). Thus, Zweder I was a loyal ally of the bishop of Utrecht, while his brother Roeland was at the count of Holland and challenged the Linschoten estate (1320). Zweders opvolger Hendrik II hing juist weer de politiek van Holland aan, wat de vrede met het naburige Linschoten weer beklonk, alleen werd de verhouding met het aartsbisdom Utrecht minder. Swimmer’s successor Hendrik II was once again in charge of Holland’s politics, as regards peace with neighboring Linschoten, only the relationship with the archdiocese of Utrecht became less. De familie onderscheidde zich onvergetelijk bij de Slag bij Warns in 1345 , waarbij driekwart van de aanwezige Van Montfoorts sneuvelde met aan het hoofd Jan I van Montfoort . The family distinguished themselves unmatched at the Battle of Warns in 1345 , with three quarters of the Van Montfoorts present falling with head Jan I of Montfoort . Zij werden vereeuwigd op een schilderij dat nu als oudste overgebleven schilderij in Nederland bekendstaat. They were immortalized on a painting now known as the oldest remaining painting in the Netherlands .

De Van Montfoorts waren verwoede Hoeken in de Hoekse en Kabeljauwse twisten . The Montfoorts were devastated Angles in the Angle and Cod twist . Jan II was een trouwe vazal van Jacoba van Beieren die haar steunde toen ze de vestingdriehoek GoudaOudewaterSchoonhoven had ingenomen maar kon niet verhinderen dat het beleg van Gouda in 1428 niet ontzet werd. Jan II was a loyal vase of Jacoba of Bavaria who supported her when she took over the fortress triangle GoudaOudewaterSchoonhoven but could not prevent the Gouda siege in 1428 from being disturbed. Eind 15e eeuw was Montfoort eigenlijk een ministaat met een eigen beleid. By the end of the 15th century Montfoort was actually a ministry with its own policy. Het was de enige stad in de Nederlanden die de Jonker Fransenoorlog steunde en het zelfs voor elkaar kreeg om Woerden in te nemen in naam van Frans van Brederode . It was the only city in the Netherlands that supported the Jonker French War and even got it together to take Woerden in the name of Frans van Brederode . Jan III van Montfoort hield zelfs in het kasteel van Woerden enige tijd zijn zetel. Jan III of Montfoort even held his seat for some time in the castle of Woerden .

In 1648 verkocht Ferdinand Filips van Merode het burggraafschap Montfoort aan de Staten van Utrecht . In 1648 , Ferdinand Filips of Merode sold the Montfoort municipality to the states of Utrecht .

Voorstelling [ bewerken ] Presentation [ edit ]

De Heren van Montfoort zijn afgebeeld tussen de Heilige Anna en Sint-Joris . The Montfoort Men are depicted between Saint Anna and Saint Joris . Van links naar rechts zijn dit burggraaf Jan I de Rovere van Montfoort , zijn oudoom Roelof de Rovere van Montfoort , de broer van burggraven Jan I en Zweder II, Willem de Rovere van Nesse , en Hendrik de Rovere van Montfoort , de zoon van Roelof. From left to right are this burial mound, Jan I de Rovere of Montfoort , his oldman Roelof de Rovere of Montfoort , the brother of Burggraven Jan I and Zweder II, Willem de Rovere of Nesse , and Hendrik de Rovere of Montfoort , the son of Roelof. Hendrik wordt vastgehouden door Sint-Joris. Hendrik is held by Saint Joris. Dit symboliseert dat hij als enige van de afgebeelde personen de Slag bij Warns overleefde. This symbolizes that he survived the Battle of Warns as the only one of the depicted persons. De anderen sneuvelden, net als hun aanvoerder Willem van Henegouwen . The others collapsed, like their captain Willem van Henegouwen . Hierdoor stierf de mannelijke lijn van het Huis van Holland uit. This resulted in the male line of the House of Holland. Onder de voorstelling staat de volgende tekst: Below the presentation is the following text:

Op het werk staat ook vermeld dat het in 1608 en nogmaals in 1770 gerestaureerd is. At work it is also mentioned that it was restored in 1608 and again in 1770. De vier wapens met helmen en (hertogelijke) kronen boven de vier heren van Montfoort zijn later aangebracht. The four weapons with helmets and (duchy) crowns above the four gentlemen of Montfoort were later applied.

Herkomst [ bewerken ] Origin [ edit ]

Het schilderij werd circa 1380/1400 in opdracht van een lid van de familie Van Montfoort vervaardigd voor het Maria-altaar in de Sint-Janskerk in Linschoten . The painting was commissioned by a member of the Van Montfoort family around 1380/1400 for the Maria altar in St. Janskerk in Linschoten . Vanaf de 17e eeuw hing de Gedachtenistafel generaties lang in de hofstede Heulenstein in Linschoten. From the 17th century the Gedessistafel has been in the hofstede Heulenstein in Linschoten for generations. In 1659 was het schilderij privébezit van jonkheer Godschalk van Harmale. In 1659 the painting was the private possession of Jonkheer Godschalk of Harmale. Na diens dood in 1662 erfde zijn neef Gerlach van der Capellen, heer van Mervelt en Schalkwijk, het doek. After his death in 1662, his cousin Gerlach van der Capellen, Mr. van Mervelt and Schalkwijk inherited the canvas. In 1666 deed hij het over aan Leonard van der Nath, die het in 1705 op zijn beurt overdeed aan Magdalena van Outvorst. In 1666 he transferred to Leonard van der Nath, who in turn transferred to Magdalena of Outvorst in 1705. Toen zij in 1712 stierf liet zij het na aan haar zoon Hendrik de Sandra. When she died in 1712 she left her son Hendrik de Sandra. Elisabeth Buijs, vrouwe van Kattenbroek, nam het doek in 1775 over van de erven van Hendrik de Sandra en deed het op 28 november 1810 over aan Bastiaan van Rossum. Elisabeth Buijs, the wife of Kattenbroek, took over the canvas of Hendrik de Sandra in 1775 and handed it over to Bastiaan van Rossum on 28 November 1810. Hij liet het in 1836 na aan Jan Knijff, die het in 1848 weer naliet aan Mensina Knijff. He left it in 1836 to Jan Knijff, who resigned to Mensina Knijff in 1848. Toen zij in 1880 stierf werd het eigendom van haar echtgenoot Hermanus van der Lee, die het in 1884 naliet aan Jan Janse Koning. When she died in 1880, it became the property of her husband Hermanus van der Lee, who abducted Jan Janse King in 1884.

About Gouwgraaf Arnoud I Werner van Rode


Bronckhorst is the name of a municipality in Gelderland, the Netherlands. The municipality is the result of a merger of the former municipalities Hengelo, Hummelo en Keppel, Steenderen, Vorden and Zelhem, on 1 January 2005. The new municipality is named after the medieval castle of the Bronckhorst family, who once ruled this area.

Over Gouwgraaf Arnoud I Werner van Rode (Nederlands)

Als sterfdata van Arnold I komen voor: 1116, 1119 en 1135.

De adellijke familie van Bronckhorst is genoemd naar het kasteel Bronckhorst dat zij lieten bouwen. De streek rondom het kasteel heet van oudsher Bronkhorst. Ook heden ten dage is er nog het plaatsje Bronkhorst, dat voortgekomen is uit de oude streek Bronkhorst. Dat plaatsje maakt onderdeel van de relatief nieuwe gemeente Bronckhorst (met de c), die genoemd is naar de oude burcht. Tegenwoordig komen er ook families van Bronkhorst voor die niet afstammen van de oude adellijke familie, maar uit de streek komen. Ook zijn er van Bronkhorst takken die wel van de adellijke familie afstammen, maar waarbij de c verloren is gegaan, met name bij de Ned.Indische tak.

Greg, you use the French numbering system of the Toneys. I use the English. Ralph de Toney who came with the Conqueror was Ralph III. He did not own Hose, Leicestershire. This manor was held by his uncle Robert de Toney. who held Belvoir Castle. I use the modern spelling of the Toney name because all the manors held by the Toneys in England who bear the name use the modern spelling., Also, most of tthe Toneys living worldwide live in America and use the modern spelling.

Herman van Malsen (ca. 1030-after 1080) is the ancestor of the genus of Cuijk.
Herman was Mr van Malsen (may refer to several places in the country rivers) and burgrave of Utrecht for Bishop William of Guelders (in some sources also Willem van Cuijk).
His father was Unruoch III count of possible Teisterbant, the brother of Bishop Ansfried of Utrecht of Utrecht.
Hermans main achievement was that he participated in the battle on 28 June 1061 Nederhemert. The troops of the Bishop and his allies were defeated by count Floris I, count of Holland. Herman raided the army regrouped and resting of Floris. Floris and many of his soldiers were killed. Herman was pledged by Emperor Henry IV with the land of Cuijk.
Herman was married to Ida, Ida of Boulogne, possible daughter of Eustace II of Boulogne and sister of

Godfried van Cuijk (1070-1134)
Helwig of Cuijk (1075-1128), in 1096 married Arnold I of Red.
There are also sources that Ermengol of Namur, daughter of Albert II of Namur, as his wife.

Arnold III of Red, count of Red, born about 1130 as a son of Gijsbert van Red, married about 1154 with Mathilde, daughter of Giselbert of Alaysa Tilborch and Valentin. The couple had at least three children: Giselbert (1155), Roelof Meyrle (1160) and Rover Emont of red (1162). Of himself is not much more known, of the County, however, all the more.

Taxandria, a Shire under the Merovingse dynasty, lay in the bishopric of Liège in the 7th century and was divided into three counties, whose names were known until much later: Strijen, Wage and red. These counties had an important role in the socio-political organisation of Taxandria. The count carried out the authority on behalf of the King in his area, he spoke right, inthe taxes and carried out in wartime the called able-bodied men. Churches and monasteries had legal immunity so that the graves had nothing to say about that. Taxandria had to in the 10th century still natural limits that were formed by the Meuse River in the North and the Peel region in the North-East. Starting from Kessenich the river Maas, in the South-East, the rivers the Jeker and the Demer in the South, the river Nete and the river ‘ Striene (The ‘ Striene was a water flow between the Schelde near Tholen and the Maas) in the West. After the St. Elizabeth’s flood in 1421, the watercourses in the Meuse-Rhine delta drastically changed and the ‘ Striene no longer existed.
Originally was a Red border county of Merovingse between the Empire and the Frisians. Bakel in that period was a prominent position where the King of the Merovingiers Pippin of Herstell (Pepin II) had a villa. This accommodation is Herelaef to Bishop Willibrord in 721 described as his possessions in Bakel. After the victory of Pepin II on the Frisians in 695 slowly kept the role of the County Red as “military” defense on Willibrord was appointed Archbishop of the new diocese of Utrecht appointed and followed the advice of the nobles in Taxandria Pepin on to the new diocese to support it. Willibrord founded a Benedictine monastery in Echternach for guidance of his work. At his death in 739 AD Willibrord the obtained land donations to the monastery of Echternach, which under Episcopal authority of Trier fell. He was not so confident that the peace would be remaining in the area (this is also the assumption of the jadeja C. Wilde, who has studied the gold treasure of Walsall. He came to the conclusion, that around 750 AD the gold treasure had to be buried, to ensure the safety of the money due to the ever-rebellious Frisians. The verdedigingsrol of the County Red remained then maintained.). By the testament of Willibrord arose in the Peel country ecclesiastical boundaries, including those at the Asdonk on the border between Rixtel and Bakel.

The early medieval elite of Taxandria has in that period contributed much to the development of the bishopric of Utrecht. The counts of Red with varying degrees of success, more than two centuries long had influence on the developments in Taxandria. On 6 may 1069 confirms Pope Alexander II again the donations to the monastery of Willibrord of Echternach, including possessions in Waalre, Diessen, Deurne and Bakel with churches and accessories. The shire county of Taxandria was a title that the graves of Red belonged. Taxandria as Shire existed then no more. The County of Strijen, named after the watercourse “‘ Striene”, is not much mentioned in the historiography. Knight William Vazquez was in 1322 count of Strijen, that when a small area between the Biesbosch and Oosterhout. In 960 was count Garnerus Lord in the County of Loon, whose motteburcht when was destroyed. One hundred years later built a castle with a drawbridge UNNIKRISHNAN Rummen. It was but a short life. Shortly after the building was completely destroyed and invaded the County of Loon under the tutelage of the prince-bishopric of Liège. The County was annexed by the Principality.

The County Red, that in the 10th century by name was named, included the north-eastern part of Taxandria, with the seat in Eerschot, the oldest core of the current St-Oedenrode. Eerschot was then also the headquarters of the Shire Taxandria, so the count also count of red wax. Waalwijk lay on the border between red and Strijen. Archbishop Bruno of Cologne (953-965), also Duke of Lorraine and brother of Emperor Otto I, has been dealing intensively with Taxandria because of the many church property in that area. It was not until the 11th century, the count of Red with first name: Dan Arnold of Red moved his seat around 1080 by Eerschot a little further along the Dommel to St-Oedenrode. His son Arnold II built there its lock. The castle complex consisted of two large omgrachte areas, which were located between the Dommel and the Hill.
During the five centuries that has existed as an independent district of the County of Red there are many wars and several marriages concluded regional strategic power reasons. About boundaries or scope of the County Red of that time is little known. By tactical marriages and to the mutual wars tried digging their power areas increased. The count of Guelders had possessions in Red (e.g. Geldrop), while the graves of Red belongings to the IJssel had to their field (e.g. Bronckhorst). In the end, the County of guelders, geännexeerd or Red by, whether or not forced, to Gelre sold. Times were changed. Taxandria was no Dana more, but more a region name.

The power of the count of Red during the 12th century further reduced because the German Emperor there allodium rights gave to the Lords of Valerie (The gentlemen or dig Valle were the former counts of plague “band (= Betuwe). Plague “band was in the 11th century between the count of guelders and the bishopric of Utrecht), the Lords of Vught, the Lords of Boxtel, the so-called Giselberten of Tilburg and the Bert wood from Mechelen.
In 1145 was Kasim, Lord of Megen, Haren, macharen and Teeffelen, granted the title of count. In 1211 and in 1246 to this count of Megen also possessed estates Rixtel and LIESHOUT.

Both the Duchy of Brabant in the 12th century as the County of Guelders had interest in the Shire Taxandria, because of the increasing prosperity of this area and perhaps also to military motives. This led to various armed conflicts in which also the local nobility played a role. The clashes rose from the moment Geldrop in hands of the count of Guelders came and ended with the complete annexation of the County in 1190 AD. A treaty which Brabant and Gelre locks in 1203 the County Red was transferred to Henry i. that fell through, so that there was a marriage contract in 1206 which Gerard III of guelders, the son of the count of Guelders, and Margaret of Brabant, the daughter of Henry I, would marry, where Margaret the absolute possession right (allodium) of Red would get. This marriage was not consummated. In 1229 it was agreed that Gerard III for 2000 marks to the Duke of Brabant would sell. That transfer in november 1231 finally took place. The young Otto II of guelders was then under the tutelage of his grandfather Henry I of Brabant.


DaVinci seems to have had a “thing” for John the Baptist, which seems quite consonant with the apparent “PoS” interest in Johannism (the idea that John was the true Messiah and Jesus a false one, or, alternatively, that they were equal co-Messiahs). Johannites believe that there was a secret teaching passed from John the Baptist to John the Beloved Disciple (whose given name was Lazarus, but he took the “alias” of John to honor the Baptist), and to a “John” ever since. (Supposedly, every PoS GrandMaster takes the name “Jean” as an honorary title, in addition to being known as “Nautonnier” or Navigator.) Pincknett and Prince believe Da Vinci put his own face on the Shroud of Turin (despite accounts which suggest it was first shown at Lirey 200 years earlier), which was confirmed to them by someone they believed to be a member of the PoS, “Giovanni”.

The Rose: Rosicrucianism, the Rosy Cross, and rose-line symbolism is all over the place in this mystery. In Sauniere’s church, St. Germaine de Pribrac releases a bevy of roses from her apron. The “Fleury Mural” seems to show a rose-filled flowery landscape, associated with the Fleury family. Go to Rodez, and you will find a rose-colored cathedral with rose windows emblazoned with the Star of David. In the Middle Ages, the rose was a symbol of esotericism – sub rosa means to do something in secret. The Templars’ cross pattee was a red or rose cross.

How interesting, then, to discover, as I have recently, that the name of several places in France – Rhedae/Rennes, Rouen/Rhodom, Rodez/Rhodes, are derived from the Greek Island of Rhodes, whose name itself comes from the rose-goddess Rhoda. Contemporary texts say that the red-haired Celtic “Redones” or “rose people” (Rutheni/Rhodanim) setlled both Rennes in the Midi and Rennes in Brittany – the name derives from the ethnic group. It is said that the resident goddess of Mount Sion-Vaudemont, the “other Sion” of the “priory of Sion” in Switzerland, is Rosemertha – the Rose mother. Interestingly, one interpretation of the King Arthur legends is that “Arthur” or “Ursus” was really Riothamus, a Dark Age Celt ruler of a “thalassocracy” that spanned Brittany in France and Cornwall in England. Many of the places near Breton Rennes are associated with Arthur and the Grail legends, and many of the Breton kings had Judaic names. And some derive Riothamus’ name from… Joseph of Arimathea, the supposed bearer of the Grail to Glastonbury.

“Heilwig van Rode ?” The Niece of Godfrey de Bouillon
Ida of Boulogne was the sister of Godfrey de Boulogne. She married
Herman of Malsen van Cuijk/Cuyck. Their daughter, Heilwig, married
Arnold van Rode, thus the niece of Godfrey Bouillon was a van
Rode/Roesmont. Ida’s mother was Ida of Lorraine. The name Ida may
have come from Saint Oda a Scotish Princess who came to Holland. The
Rode family appear to have taken their name from the town and church
they built for this princess, Saint Odenrode. Rode means clearing in
a forest. An elevated place within this glade would be a mound, thus
the name, Rodemound.

“huwelijk (van Rode-van Cuijk):”

Godfrey de Bouillon was titled `Duke of Lorraine’. The Dukes of
Lorraine descend from Ragnar the Viking and are close kin to the
Dukes of Brabant, if not the same family, thus the crossbeams in the
Cross of Lorraine?

There are about a dozen Ida or Oda names that may have been taken
from Saint Oda of Scotland. Robert de Bruce descends from Ida of
Louvain. Maud of Louvain married Count Eustace of Bouillon, and thus
is the great grandmother of Heilwig Roesmont.whose Roesmont
descendant may have carried on her name and that of her husband,
Arnold van Rode.

“Heilwigis Arnoldi Danielis ROESMONT [Parents] married Arnoldus
Other marriages:
VAN DER POIRTEN, Arnoldus Rover ”

There is a line of Arnold van Kleef (Cleves). Were they the
progenitors the Countess of Cleves throws in the face of Elsa of
Brabant the wife of Hylas, the Swan Knight, only to have him reveal
his own Arnolds? Could they be the same?

Beatrice de Bar married Geofrey the Duke of Lorraine. Beatrice if a
Ferrette who owned Rougemont castle. Here is where the genealogical
search for the source of the Rosamond name, ends, for they belong to
the same family that begot Godfrey de Bouillon, a co-founder of the
Knight Templars, and perhaps the first king of Jerusalem whose large
portrait hung over my late sister’s mantle, she the world famous
artist, Rosamond.

I suspect Saint Oda may have originally been a Queen of the Frisians
who born a liniage of Roses, and the Lords of Rode. That Godfrey’s
sister, Ida, is disappeared from most geneaologies, along with his
niece Heilwig van Rode, tells me there is a REAL ROSE LINE that could
have been revelead by the Swan Knight.

“The Swan Knight’s adventures bring him to the defense of the
dispossessed Duchess of Bouillon, whose land has been seized by
Regnier (Ragnar) of Saxony, whom he challenges to a duel. The Swan
Knight defeats Regnier and wins the daughter of the Duchess in
marriage. They have a daughter, Ida, who can see the future and knows
that she is destined to be the mother of Eustace, Godfrey, and

On May 9, 2006 I posted on Atland, the Frisian Atlantis. The Frisians
were ruled by Rosamond, the Earth Goddess Mother. Was her mythical
being based on Saint Odarode?

This post is my capstone. Like a blind man I have been groping in the
dark, moving forward, and never wavering. I came to touch the statue
of Oda the blind saint, and all is revealed, all I have written made
clear in what can surely be titled `The Prophecy of Rhodemond’.
Consider the name of Rhodos’s father and the name of the Swan Knight,

RHODOS (Rhodos), was, according to Diodorus (v. 55), a daughter of
Poseidon and Halia, and sometimes called Rhode.

Now, with sword in hand, and the flag of Oedenrode, I come to Carmel.
And kick down the door of the Rosamond gallery, and claim it in the
name of my Rode family; for no sooner was my artistic sister dead,
did the parasites get rid of the surviving artist in the family.
Within twenty four hours, we were gone, and the feeding frenzy of the
un-gifted ones began.

As the Red Knight of the Lords of Rode, who were close kin to
Godfrey, I challenge my powerfyll foes, bid them to come out of their
dark hiding place, and face me like a man.

I have recovered my child and grandchild in my recent trip to Santa
Rosa. “All’s well, that ends well.”

First records of the settlement called Rhode date from the year 500.
Sint-Oedenrode was a small settlement on an elevated place near the
river Dommel. The settlements on both riverbanks (Rhode and Eerschot)
merged into one larger settlement.

In the 11th century the Lords of Rhode build a castle on the elevated
area (during excavations in 2005 remains of the castle were
uncovered, proving the early records to be valid). The Eerschot part
of the settlement constructed the first church (the church has been
rebuild many times over the centuries, the early base can still be
seen in the church which is nowadays named ‘Knoptoren’).

The settlement thrived and became an important place in the region.
Sint-Oedenrode was granted city status in 1232 by the Duke of Brabant
(at that time Hendrik I of Brabant). This promoted Sint-Oedenrode to
the capital of the Peel (the name of the region in North Brabant).
RHODE (Rhodê),a daughter of Poseidon by Amphitrite, was married to
Helios, and became by him the mother of Phaeton and his sisters
(Apollod. i. 4. § 4). It should be observed that the names Rhodos and
Rhode are often confounded (Diod. v. 55).

RHODOS (Rhodos), was, according to Diodorus (v. 55), a daughter of
Poseidon and Halia, and sometimes called Rhode. The island of Rhodes
was believed to have derived its name from her. According to others,
she was a daughter of Helios and Amphitrite, or of Poseidon and
Aphrodite, or lastly of Oceanus (Pind. Olymp. vii. 24; Tzetz. ad
Lycoph. 923). She was a sea-nymph, of whom the following legend is
related. When the gods distributed among themselves the various
countries of the earth, the island of Rhodes was yet covered by the
waves of the sea. Helios was absent at the time; and as no one drew a
lot for him, he was not to have any share in the distribution of the
earth. But at that moment the island of Rhodes rose out of the sea,
and with the consent of Zeus he took possession of it, and by the
nymph of the isle he then became the father of seven sons. (Pind. Ol.
vii. 100, &c.; Ov. Met. iv. 204.)

Ida of Boulogne (c. 1160–1216) was Countess of Boulogne. She was the eldest daughter of Matthew of Alsace by Marie I, Countess of Boulogne. Her maternal grandparents were King Stephen of England and Matilda I of Boulogne.
Her mother had been placed in a convent, but was removed in order to marry Matthew. As a consequence, her parents’ marriage was rather controversial and they finally divorced in 1170. Her father continued to rule until his death in 1173, when she succeeded.
On the advice of her uncle, Philip I, Count of Flanders, she married first in 1181 to Gerard of Guelders, but he died the same year. Ida quickly remarried to Berthold IV of Zähringen, but he too died in 1186. According to the contemporary historian Lambert of Ardres:
“…so left without a man, [Ida] indulged herself in worldly delights and pleasures of the body. She fell passionately in love with Arnold II of Guînes, and tried as hard as she could to seduce him; or rather, with typical feminine fickleness and deception she feigned that emotion. Emissaries and secret tokens passed back and forth between them as indications of certain love. Arnold either loved her or with masculine foresight and prudence pretended to; for he aspired to the land and dignity of the County of Boulogne once he could gain the Countess’ favor through love feigned or true.”
This relationship came to naught when Ida was abducted in 1190 by Count Renaud de Dammartin, who carried her off to Lorraine. This was a common enough fate for medieval heiresses. The situation became complicated when Arnold of Guînes received messages of enduring love from Ida. He promptly rode to her rescue, only to be captured and imprisoned by friends of Renaud in Verdun. Arnold was only freed due to the intervention of William, Archbishop of Reims. Ida was supposed to have purposely deceived him to lead Arnold into a trap. Whatever the truth, she remained with Renaud and produced a daughter, Matilda II of Boulogne (died 1258).

The Trump administration demanded in unusually strong terms Friday that Kurdish leaders in Iraq cancel a referendum on independence set for later this month, saying it was “distracting” from the military effort against Islamic State terrorists.

The White House statement came hours after the parliament of Iraqi Kurdistan voted to go ahead with the referendum. The developments are the latest in an intensifying campaign, some of it waged on Capitol Hill, over whether the Kurds should hold the vote. It’s an especially sensitive issue because the Kurds are critical U.S. allies in the anti-terrorism fight in Iraq and Syria, providing ground troops that have scored numerous successes.

“The United States does not support the Kurdistan Regional Government’s intention to hold a referendum later this month,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Friday. “The United States has repeatedly emphasized to the leaders of the Kurdistan Regional Government that the referendum is distracting from efforts to defeat [the Islamic State] and stabilize the liberated areas.”
