Scotland's Namesake

The original Scots-Gaels were descended from a princess named Scota.  Her husband was Niul, the Governor of Capacyront, by birth, a Black Sea prince of Scythia.  Her name “Scota”, which was Scythian for “ruler of the people” was gained by the princess when she married Niul.   

Scota was the daughter of Egyptian Pharaoh Smenkhkare.  Smenkhkare was known by several other names and spellings of his own name.  These include Smenkhkara, Smenkhkaron, Achencheres (in Manetho’s Egyptian King List), Cencheres (the version used by the Christian church-father Eusebius), and Cinciris (from early Gaelic history).  The phonetic version of one name listed above, that of Smenkhkaron, provides the name by which history knows him best, that of Aaron – described in the Bible as Moses’s brother.  In actuality, Aaron was Moses’s first cousin and a feeding-brother of Moses.  (Aaron’s mother Tey was the woman who nursed Moses when he was born).   

Aaron, or Smenkhkare, was pharaoh for a short interim period when Akhenaten was forced to abdicate when he tried to impose only one god (named Aten) on the Egyptians.  Akhenaten (meaning Glorious Spirit of Aten) was originally born named Amenhotep (meaning Amen is pleased).  He ruled as Amenhotep IV until he changed his name and tried to get the Egyptians to worship the one god Aten, instead of the chief god among many – named Amen.  Akhenaten is best known in history by his Hebrew name used in the Bible – that of Moses.

Back to Scotland - According to the 17th century History of Ireland, Niul and Aaron entered into an alliance of friendship with one another.  The Gaelic text further states that Gaedheal (Gael), the son of Niul and Princess Scota, was born in Egypt, at the time when Moses began to act as leader of the children of Israel. These leaders, from which the Gaelic people descended, were themselves descended from historic people. The Scythians, before the migration of Niul and Scota to Ireland and Scotland, were descended from the Biblical Ham and Japhet. Ham, was known as Thoth, (the supposed author of the Egyptian Book of the Dead, containing the original version of the Ten Commandments) to the Egyptians and Japhet was known as Iapetus II to the Greeks. 

The Declaration of Arbroath in 1320, announced to the world the heritage of Scotland from Scythia.
