Scota, Egyptian Queen of the Scots. by Ralph Ellis

Ireland and Scotland were first settled by Egyptians.

The legends of Ireland and Scotland tell a fantastic tale of an Egyptian queen and her Greek husband, who were exiled from Egypt to Ireland at some point during the second millennium BC. It is said that it was from this Queen Scota and King Gaythelos that the modern titles for the Scottish and Gaelic people were derived. But what are we to make of this ancient story – is it based more upon fact or fiction?

Historians have, as one might expect, taken the story to be complete fiction; but Ralph Ellis has taken a lateral look at this mythology, and found many links and associations that lead to one inescapable conclusion – that the extraordinary tale of Queen Scota and King Gaythelos is probably true.

It is likely that the king and queen in question were Pharaoh Aye and Queen Ankhesenamun, of the Amarna dynasty. Having been exiled from Egypt in about 1320 BC they travelled initially to the River Ebro in Spain, then the Balearic Islands, and thence to Ireland and Scotland.

About the Author

Ralph Ellis has been touring the Mediterranean and researching Egyptian and biblical history for over 30 years, and his comparisons between the two have greatly assisted our understanding of biblical history. It would appear that much of biblical history was derived from Egypt, and this includes: the history of the patriarchs, the Santorini-Exodus event, the United Monarchy of kings David and Solomon, and the New Testament accounts as well. Jesus, as readers will recall, went to Egypt for his education, and this educational exile was neither coincidental nor made through necessity.
This gradual uncovering of the Egyptian history of the Tanakh and the Gospels has finally delivered the the ultimate in theological discoveries - the real identity of Jesus in the historical record and the location of his palace and small kingdom. But this is a story that should be savored rather than rushed, so readers should start with 'Jesus, Last of the Pharaohs' and then progress to either:

New Testament history:
Jesus, Last of the Pharaohs.
Cleopatra to Christ.
King Jesus.
Jesus, King of Edessa.

Old Testament history:
Jesus, Last of the Pharaohs.
Tempest & Exodus.
Eden in Egypt.
Solomon, Pharaoh of Egypt.
Scota, Egyptian Queen of the Scots.
