What about this woman named Kathleen McGowan who claims to be from the "sacred bloodline" (descendant of a union between Jesus and Mary Magdalene).

USA Today Article



Meet Kathleen McGowan, novelist and self-proclaimed descendant of a union between Jesus and Mary Magdalene. McGowan, who says she is from the "sacred bloodline" Brown made famous in his mega-selling novel, says she's ready to cope with people who think she's crazy or a heretic.

But among believers are her powerful literary agent and the editors at New York publisher Simon & Schuster, who are throwing their weight behind her autobiographical religious thriller The Expected One, out July 25, with a sizable first printing of 250,000 copies.

McGowan says evidence of her ancient French lineage and connections to the sacred bloodline have been passed down through many generations of her family but admits "there are certainly holes in it." Much ancestral documentation, she says, was destroyed during the French Revolution.

So no direct and solid proof.

A New York firm throwing their weight behind her new book, trying to raise her profile and the publicity surrounding her new book. Something seems quite odd to me.

Perhaps i'm abit tied up with the fact/fiction case surrounding the 'holy grail' but I was under the impression the descendents were all sworn to secrecy over the matter?

IMO It is pure publicity in quite bad taste cashing in on the Dan Brown fictional novel.

Without any evidence so far in support of her claim, i`m guessing its just a ploy to sell more books!

Claims to be from the "sacred bloodline" made famous in the novel?

Does she have a clue what a novel is? Can we say fiction?

So what is her book classified as?
I can't wait to see how many people fall for this one.

Edit: Oh, this is rich! It's fiction, and here's why:

Q & A to Author

It took many years for me to uncover the entire story of Mary thst I tell in The Expected One. Had I continued to write nonfiction, I would not have been able to use the most important and exciting discoveries I had made. I had to protect my sources and will continue to do so as the astounding information continues to flow.

The interesting twist here is that, as I allowed myself the freedom that comes with fiction, I was able to tell a complete version of this story, which in many ways is far more honest than anything I could have done within the confines of nonfiction!

Well anything to make a buck, I would have done the same but I have no french blood on me.

But I got italian!!!!!!!!!!, perhaps I may change the history to claim that it was not french but Italian from where the blood line ended.

I've just spend three days in Belgium with Kathleen McGowan, author of "The Expected One" and "The Book of Love". And I'm afraid, she turned me into something like a believer too. I guess her novels are as much "standard religious thrillers" as the Kamasutra or The Divina Commedia is. "Jesus taught through parables," Maureen Paschal says in "The Book of Love". So, this is not about fact or fiction or even historical faction. This is about history coming to us through myths and legends and teaching with parables, or: "Storytelling with symbolism". You simply know Kathleen has a point when she claims history was written by men who didn't want women in their chronicles. Remember Mary Magdalene or Matilda of Tuscany. Where are they now? Who were they really? If you want to know that, you will not find an answer in the mainstream history books.

Unless she's (not likely) the only child from a single line of people who had only one child (and that one child survived)... let's see... about 100 generations of them, then she would NOT be the only one.

In fact, since my husband's family traces back to the de Medicis in Rome, he could be part of the bloodline!!!

My family's a bunch of mutts and Native Americans, but there's some Scottish and English blood and the English were a product of the Romans and French and Germans and so forth, so I could be part of the bloodline!!!

In fact, if each one of the bloodline had exactly two children who had 2 children, etc, etc, there would be 2^100 people related to Jesus by marriage.

That's everybody! QUICK!!! WRITE SOME BOOKS!!!!!

Well she does have Jesus Christs simple and direct honesty. Well ok no she dosen't but if christ had her agent and publisher things would have gone very differently, and isn't that what really counts?

Ok well maybe it isn't what counts. But the great truths contained in this complete work of fiction transcend the actual truth! But you won't truly understand until you buy the book. You don't even need to read the book, buying it is enough to have played your role in something truly monumental!

Anyone know where the Magdalene was buried. Or if bits of her were kept somewhere? That might prove something out.

She's talking about the merivingian bloodline. Wow. And the actual concept that it originates that way, rather than through the legendary lost tribes, such as Dann. Yes there are many. She's not alone. Though probably an abductee.
A walking testube.

The Sinclairs were supposed to be descendants of the Merovingian blood line, too. But, as Mr. Sinclair himself said when confronted with the possibility, "even if there were such a blood line and even if I were descendant from that blood line (a lot of "if's"), it would be so diluted by now as to be non-existent."

I'm descended from captains, judges, Governors, inventors, adventurers, etc. but I'M not any of those things so what's the point? If she does something miraculous, I'll buy her book. Until then, it just seems like false advertising.

What you said. BINGO.

It's nonsense. Everyone is of god. It's the birth of the spirit/soul. Anyone claiming any kind of divinity through the physical is simple a liar or mislead.

Do people forget Jesus did not claim Joesph or Mary as his parents? That he only recognized god as his father? The bloodline doesn't matter at all, the spirit is what is divine.

2 births. 1 is of the physical, and 1 is of the spirit/soul.

John 3

5Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

6That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

7Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

8The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.

Don't know if I've read the links right, but it MIGHT be possible that she could be a descendant of Mary Magdalene. I'm sure Magdalene got married eventually and had children.

But the link between Magdalene and Jesus is tenuous at best.
It's just a theory without any proof.

So, even possibly being a descendant of Magdalene would make it a good read for this fact alone. IMO.

Hello Wise One's.

There are many alive today from the blood line of the Adama, all are of the kingship of the house of shimti by Enki and his sister-wife Nin-Khursag, Shi-im-ti meant 'breath of life'.

The Bible explains that the Bloodline story began with Adam and Eve (known then as 'Atabba' and 'Ava', and jointly as the 'Adama') from whose third son, Seth, evolved a line which progressed through Methoselah and Noah, and eventually to Abraham who became the Great Patriarch of the Hebrew nation. After a few generations we got David of Bethlehem became King of the newly defined Kingdom of Israel. Well, we all know Jesus was from King David's line, so from there we know the Messianic blood line moved on though Mary and the French king's until today.

Let me say this, there can only be one new Massia, Christ, King of Kings, he is alive in theses times and will be known soon. If he ever publish's a book I would think I would buy it.


As for this woman, she is just cashing in and why not if she is royal, the rest do...

We have a genealogy book dating back to the early 1500's when some of our ancestors crossed over escaping persecution (blue-blood thing), so we are able to trace our roots that far back. We had castles and a whole city named after us, which interestingly enough still exist to this day in Normandy. I wonder if heredity claims can be used after so many centuries? hmm... I wouldn't mind living in a castle when the SHTF

If in the event there is confirmed a true Mergovian bloodline the debate will not be answered either way.

I may not be for the shrouded secrecy bit, but for protection of this bloodline is paramount as it can have unforseen circumstances.

I know the truth but and bound by contract to not either endorse nor confone such items.

I've just spend three days in Belgium with Kathleen McGowan, author of "The Expected One" and "The Book of Love". She makes you read the gospels and look at the history books with other eyes, with the eyes of Magdalene and Matilde of Tuscany, with "her" eyes, from the point of view of the women Time forgot.

If you read closer, it doesn't really matter if Maureen or Kathleen are "bloodliners". They don't make a big deal of it. After all... and more than 20 centuries later... there are many, many other "bloodliners".

"Jesus taught through parables," Maureen Paschal says in "The Book of Love". So, this is not about fact or fiction or even historical faction. This is about history coming to us through myths and legends and teaching with parables, or: "Storytelling with symbolism".
