Once upon a time…………………….nah!!!!!………..its not one of those stories.
This is a story about history.
OURStory I would like to rename it. A true story hardly ever been told and definitly not being heralded loudly enough by our historians and academics. One has to question why?
Because in reality the real story is infinitly more fascinating.
What is this story about ? Its about an exiled princess from ancient Egypt, married to a Scythian King, King Mil with connections to Greece. It is said they traversed the ocean in search for a beautiful and magical island referred to as ‘The land of Destiny’ — in Gaelic— ‘ InnisFáil’ this as it happens was one of the earliest known of many names for what we refer to as todays Ireland.
It is also believed she carried the ‘Stone of Destiny’ with her and first brought it here. She and her husband landed like many including accounts of the Tuatha De Danann, off the Iveagh peninsula, the south west coast of Ireland, Kerry county. The Peninsula is a rugged landscape and its hard to imagine a large entourage of boats being able to land easily here, other accounts think its possible they landed on the east coast and may have travelled first up the river Boyne towards Tara.
Scotia is one of a few Pharaohs alledgedly buried in Ireland. References from ancient Irish texts particulary the ‘Book of Invasions’ and ‘The Lebor Gabála’ hold many accounts of origin stories of Ireland, including various other names of which the island would originaly be referred to. She came her with her Three sons one of which is Hiber/Heber/Hebermon, its very likely that is the ethymology for the name Hibernia and the Iveagh Peninsula in kerry and Iberia in Spain.

Ancient Egyptian texts describe how Egypt’s ancestors came from a sacred “island of flame” in the Atlantic Ocean that was devastated in a great flood.
Several ancient Egyptian texts, including The Book of the Dead, The Pyramid Texts and The Hymn of Rameses IV, tell of ten kings who ruled during the reign of the gods. One of these was Thoth, the founder of the Egyptian civilisation, God of the Moon, creator of languages, representative of the sun, who was born in a distant country to the west, a country which was across a body of water.
Other texts refer to this ancestral territory as the “sunset land” or the “island of the setting sun”. Still modern day Ireland is referred to as the land of the setting sun as well as many other invocative and inspiring names, such as,
Tir Na Nog
Land of Destiny/InnisFáil
The Emerald Isle
Numerous artefacts have been discovered in the rich soil of which are a number of Golden Torcs dated back to egyptian sources.How did they get here? Another interesting find in relation to Thoth mentioned earlier was the discovery of a Barbary ape skull in Navan Fort, Co. Armagh. Thoth was represented as an north African Ape or Baboon.
Further evidence backs up the Ireland/Egypt connection. In genetics, a haplogroup is a group from the same human family tree that traces back to one individual ancestor. The Irish are part of the same genetic haplogroup as the lineage of the pharaohs. The highest concentration of Pharaoh Tutankhamun’s Haplogroup R-M269 is found in IrelandFiona Cameron Lister.
So interestingly as it happens red hair,blue eyes and fair skin which is found in its highest amounts in Ireland is traced back to red haired mummies found in Egypt. There is so much more to know about our- hi-story and society which is not only relative to Ireland but the origin storys of many other countries also, which has been altered and kept out of the mainstream channells.
