Royal Bloodline and Relationship to the Merovingian Line

The Da Vinci Code:


The Da Vinci Code suggests that Mary Magdalene and Christ united to combine a powerful royal bloodline. Mary Magdalene was from the Tribe of Benjamin and Jesus from the House of David (248-249). Brown goes on to say that Mary Magdalene was in fact the bearer of this royal bloodline and the evidence that Jesus had a royal bloodline is within the Sangreal Documents (249). Mary Magdalene posed a threat to the men of the church by not only having been "assigned the task of founding the Church, but she also had physical proof that the Church's newly proclaimed deity had spawned a mortal bloodline" (254). The royal bloodline quietly grew in France under the heavy protection of the Knights Templar. They resurfaced again when it married into the French bloodline, thereby creating the Merovingian line. Brown also states that there are two direct lines of Merovingians that currently exist, the families of Plantard and Saint-Clair, probably under the protection of the Priory of Sion (260).

Evidence from The Da Vinci Code:

“My dear child, it was not Mary Magdalene's royal blood that concerned the Church so much as it was her consorting with Christ, who also had royal blood.  As you know, the Book of Matthew tells us that Jesus was of the House of David.  A descendant of King Solomon –King of the Jews.  By marrying into the powerful House of Benjamin, Jesus fused two royal bloodlines, creating a potent political union with the potential of making a legitimate claim to the throne and restoring the line of kings as it was under Solomon.” –Teabing (249)


“That's part of what the Crusades were about. Gathering and destroying information. The threat Mary Magdalene posed to the men of the early Church was potentially ruinous. Not only was she the woman to whom Jesus had assigned the task of founding the Church, but she also had physical proof that the Church's newly proclaimed deity had spawned a mortal bloodline. The Church, in order to defend itself against the Magdalene's power, perpetuated her image as a **** and buried evidence of Christ's marriage to her, thereby defusing any potential claims that Christ had a surviving bloodline and was a mortal prophet.” (254)


“…Mary Magdalene was pregnant at the time of the crucifixion. For the safety of Christ's unborn child, she had no choice but to flee the Holy Land. With the Help of Jesus' trusted uncle Joseph of Arimathea, Mary Magdalene secretly traveled to France, then known as Gaul. There she found safe refuge in the Jewish community. It was here in France that she gave birth to a daughter. Her name was Sarah.” (255)


“Magdalene's and Sarah's lives were scrutinously chronicled by their Jewish protectors. Remember that Magdalene's child belonged to the lineage of Jewish kings—David and Solomon. For this reason, the Jews in France considered Magdalene sacred royalty and revered her as the progenitor of the royal line of kings.” (255)


“…Christ's line grew quietly under cover in France until making a bold move in the fifth century, when it intermarried with French royal blood and created a lineage known as the Merovingian bloodline.” –Teabing (257) 

“With Dagobert's murder, the Merovingian, Sigisbert, secretly escaped the attack and carried on the lineage, which later included Godefroi de Bouillon- founder of the Priory of Sion.” –Teabing (258)

“The modern Priory of Sion has a momentous duty.  Theirs is a threefold charge.  The brotherhood must protect the Sangreal documents.  They must protect the tomb of Mary Magdalene.  And, of course, they must nurture and protect the bloodline of Christ –those few members of the royal Merovingian bloodline who have survived into modern times.” –Teabing (258) 

“Only two direct lines of Merovingians remain.  Their family names are Plantard and Saint-Clair.  Both families live in hiding, probably protected by the Priory.” –Langdon (260) 

The Origins of the Merovingian Line:

This site describes the origins of the Merovingian bloodline as being from the Germanic tribe of the Franks. Specifically, the Salian Franks who were located at the most northern part of the area along the Rhine River which the Franks occupied. The chief of the Salian Franks, Merovich, is where the name Merovingian originated. Merovich's son, Clovis is known as the first king of the Merovingians.

The Knights Templar:

The Knights Templar presents evidence that supports Brown's theory of the Merovingians being descendants of Mary Magdalene and Jesus, specifically the ancestry of the Frankish people that the Merovingians directly descended from. Dr. Steven Edward Mizrach elaborates on the conception of the first Merovingian king by providing a theory of how the mother of Merovich was actually impregnated by both King Chlodio and by a "Quinotaur," an aquatic creature. While this theory seems to be quite far-fetched to the educated reader, it does provide a credible history for what happened to the royal lineage.




The Merovingian Connection:

In Margaret Starbird's book, The Woman with the Alabaster Jar: Mary Magdalene and the Holy Grail, she breaks down the name “Merovingian” in a manner that insinuates Merovingian descent from Magdalene. “The name Merovingian may itself be a linguistic fossil. The lore surrounding the royal family of the Framks mentions an ancestor “Merovée.” But the word Merovingian breaks down phonetically into syllables that we can easily recognize: mer and vin , Mary and the wine. Broken down this way, it may be seen to allude to the “vine of Mary” or perhaps the “vine of the Mother” (Starbird 62*).


The Mermaid Myth of the Merovingian Dynasty:

An interesting correlation that Brown makes between the Disney movie, The Little Mermaid and Mary Magdelene, proves to be a common theory amongst the same people who correlate the Merovingian line to Magdalene. “When Langdon had first seen The Little Mermaid, he had actually gasped aloud when he noticed that the painting in Ariel's underwater home was none other than seventeenth-century artist George de la Tour's The Penitent Magdalene – a famous homage to the banished Mary Magdelene—fitting décor considering the movie turned out to be a ninety-minute collage of blatant symbolic references to the lost sanctity of Isis, Eve, Pisces the fish goddess, and repeatedly, Mary Magdalene. The Little Mermaid's name, Ariel, possessed powerful ties to the sacred feminine and, in the Book of Isaiah, was synonymous with “the Holy City besieged.” Of course, [Ariel's] flowing red hair was certainly no coincidence either” (262).

Margaret Starbird, one of the authors that Dan Brown mentions in The Da Vinci Code, provides many different theories about the origins of the Merovingian lineage. There is a collection of myths, that all seem to have one thing in common, the belief that the Merovingians have ancestry that is “half man, half fish.” The theories range anywhere from collaboration of mermaids to sea monsters. What Starbird points out is that, Mary Magdalene was in fact “identified with the shape known as the ‘Vessel of the Fish."' She believes that these “half man, half fish” myths carry on the theory of Magdalene being an ancestor of the Merovingian line.

“Only two direct lines of Merovingians remain.”

In the novel Dan Brown suggests that there are in fact two remaining sects of the Merovingian line, Plantard and Saint-Clair. It is suggested by the Priory of Sion, that Pierre Plantard is a hoax in regards to his descent from the Merovingian line due to the fact that his criminal record and belief that he falsified documents about his relation to the Merovingians. ABC News found two cousins that are actual descendants of William Sinclair who built the Roslyn Chapel.

Wind:
Very good read thank you. This subject has always interested me, it's one that I've spent many long hours researching.

Kabrina Teppe:
Great, do you have any opinion on the validity of it?
You know the Merovingians allegedly all could heal people by placing their hands on them, too.
