A NEW THEORY ABOUT KING ARTHUR
By Kelly d. Whittaker - Author of Knights Templar
interpreted the ancient manuscripts that were originally Celtic
languages as Old French therefore causing certain words to have
different meanings than those languages that were of Old German origins.
Bard Taliesin gave a description of Avalon as 'insula pororum Fortunata'
which in Old French translates to island of apples. The Bard spoke
Celtic which is a form of Old German therefore the description he
offered means island by the sea that has profuse vegetation and the
inhabitants lived very long lives, in German. King Orry was Guinevere's
father. Old French had his name spelt Gorre (Gorray). Gorray would have
been the lands in
. Another pronunciation was found by Chretien de Troyes and Marie de
France. The two poets stated that Guinevere was from the lands of
Gorry-Gorree. This changed the land mass from
to the Isle of Man. This location would explain the strange spelling of
Guinevere. Her name was pictish. The Picts were ruling the
Isle of Man
at the time of Arthur.
This opens a new
door or possibly a very old one to the legend of Arthur. Why the Isle of
Man and not
? What supporting documents are available on the location of Avalon? The
King of Norway, Marie de France and the Perceval manuscripts all
coincide with Lancelot's description of his trip to Avalon.
This little island
is St. Patrick's island off the west side of the Isle of Man. The ruins
remains even today. This small island was a very important place of
worship in the early Catholic Church. So important that the pope
actually sent Saint Germanus there in the 5th century. St. Patrick
preached there in 444. St. Germanus was there to convert the pagans to
Christianity and he did accomplish what he was sent there to do. St.
Germanus was also a very fair man, he allowed the Grail ceremony, Easter
and All Saints day to be incorporated into the Christian teachings.
Sir John Rhys and
other scholars had translated the old languages with supporting
documentation that Avalon, the
and Arthur's third castle Galoches was indeed on the Isle of Man.
Garvase of Tilbury painted King Arthur in a royal establishment,
claiming that the palace was in the three-sided, three-legged
. (Scicily also has the 3 Legs
emblem – hence the confusion)
mystery still remains why the legend was moved to
. A hypothesis is; King Henry II was so obsessed over the predictions of
Merlin, that King Arthur
would come back again that Henry actually had the evidence moved to
so he could have the Bishops keep a very close watch. When
burned, Henry II had it completely rebuilt. It was not completed at his
death so Richard the Lion heart finished the task.
The New theory had
been fully documented through out the past 1500 years. The information
stating that Arthur was a real king, Guinevere being a Celtic Princess,
Camelot being a real place and all the other people mentioned as once
living and fighting for their beloved religions, exists. The
and Avalon has now been translated from old documentation.

Arthurian Coin Collection
Despite the powers that be not taking the information seriously,
someone saw the potential to literally cash-in on the
international interest in King Arthur because in1996 the
Isle of Man
issued a set of five Camelot coins.Two of them are pictured
here. The others were Queen Guinevere,
Merlin and Sir Lancelot.
