Many thanks


i did my homework as requested,, i hope my thesis meets your approval,, ohh cloaked one



CONFIRMED AS SCIENTIFIC FACT

1. Schleeman was correct. he did in fact Find Troy/Elesia/

Troy was had an Allience with the Hittite Empire.

2. Troy was a SANCTUARY CITY.

qUESTION:
1. Did Helen flee too Troy, because it was a Sanctuary City.

And she wanted too get away from her religion.?


2.Ancient eleusis/,,,,,Was the Defender of Troy/Elesia
a Russian or Germanic Prince?

(The double eagle chevron.)




they went that way




next quetion,, what did the bible say about the Hittite Empire, around 2000 b.c?


wow
what if the Bible mentions Troy,, anyone check?

Elesia,,,hmmmmm?

here is the wiki link that talks about the bible and the hittites:
en.wikipedia.org...

so, the bible does talk and them....

furthermore; the documentary talks about how the hittites and troy where allies. which would example how a long war could happen.

what i think is interesting, is; troy was a major trade city and had access to raw materials such as
tin, gold, stone etc. some of which the greeks needed. so, the whole war for helen, while it may have
been apart of it had nothing to do with the real reasons for the war....

According to thorough research by Dr. Hoeh in "The Compendium of World History Vol 2" the fall of Troy is synchronized with 1181 BCE (the age of judges in the Bible). In his work he states:


from Compendium of World History Chapter XII
CHAPTER XII
TROJAN MIGRATION TO FRANCE
After Troy fell, in 1181 BCE, the populace in the conquered regions
fled from the Greeks to various parts of Europe. One of these groups
was led by Aeneas and finally reached Italy. But, there were other
groups who left Troy after the First Trojan War.

Another group of Trojan refugees was led by Francio the son of the
ill-fated Hector, and heir to the line of Samothes in Gaul. These fled
to the northern shore of the Black Sea, then returned to Isauria in
Asia Minor, from where they migrated to Pannonia and then on to Western
Europe. From these Trojans is descended the house of the Dukes of
Brabant (an old province embracing parts of modern Belgium and the
Netherlands). From this Assyro-Judaic family came Charlemagne, the
first emperor of the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation.

A complete list of these Trojan rulers, from Hector down to
Charlemagne, is found in the work by Jhr. C. A. Rethaan Macaré entitled
"Oude Kronijk van Brabant", in the "Codex Diplomaticus Neerlandicus,"
series 2, part 3, published by Het Historisch Genootschap te Utrecht,
Utrecht, Holland in 1855.

The chronology starts with 1181 BCE and continues right down the line
without complications till Silvius Brabon II, who begins to reign in
732 BCE. The beginning and end of each reign is synchronized with
contemporary Biblical history, which, incidentally, is presented in its
correct chronology down to a period long after the dividing of the
monarchy."


I thought these historical records might help bring some context to Troy. Thanks OP.

God Bless,
