    Notes 
    • King Marcomer IV (?-169) of the Franks, founded the city of Marburg, Germany, married Princess Athildis of Camulod (?-?), elder sister of King Lleiffer Mawr (or Lucius) of Britain

      There are three legends concerning the ancient Merovingian dynasty:

      1.) That their Sicambrian roots stretch back to the lost Hebrew tribe of Benjamin, which fled Israel following a civil war and voyaged to Greece where they become intermarried with the princes of Arcadia and supposedly helped found ancient Troy. At about the time of the Roman conquest of Greece, these "Benjaminites" journeyed north to the mouth of the Danube River on the Black Sea and eventually followed it west to ancient Gaul along the way absorbing into their ranks smaller Germanic groups.

      2.) Through marriages with Visigoth nobility from southern France and Spain they descend from the Desposyni (descendants of the relatives the Christ family) that fled the Holy Lands following the crucifixion and settled in south France.

      3.) That the royal line possessed magical powers and were more priest-kings than political rulers. These magical powers were centered in their long hair like Samson of the Bible, which they never cut leading to the name "the long haired kings." When Pepin "the Short" deposed the last of the Merovingian kings with the help of the Pope, he refuses to have "holy blood" on his hands and instead had the king's head shaven and then had him locked away in a monastery for the rest of his life. It is an interesting fact to note that Pepin tried to lend legitimacy to his usurping of the Frankish throne by marrying a Merovingian descendant, Countess Bertha "Big Foot."
