" ARNOLD " -- " A TRUE STORY - 400 AD "
edmondsallan - Hello - How did the brain teaser go ( the DNA et'c ).
just in case you are still struggling with it , I thought you could put the " Brain Teaser " down , read this story to relax , then go back to the other . Would you like that ?? - you would -- ok .We going to jump to around 400 AD which was around the time frame this story took place .
This story was documented by 'Italian Priests " and is still held in their archives by them in the town of " Bludenze " Austria - This township is about 20 kilometres from the ' Swiss - Austrian Border .
By the way , the name of " Arnold " was derived from the " Germanic - Scandinavin name of " Arnulf " meaning - " EAGLE RULER "
Their were two brothers " Arnulf and Alaric " Both are related by blood lines to " Magog " already mentioned in our ancestry in Part ( 4 ).and was the start of the name eventually becoming " Arnold " These two brothers lived in the Swiss province / canton of " Thurgau " They had many followers and they were all known for their infamous deeds , plundering / raping / capturing / enslaving etc ,.( you name it - They did it by invading other countries near them . Their is one particular journey they repeated several times in their efforts to rob & plunder , etc . You may need the Map book , showing Italy
Switzerland etc . They would cross over the swiss border , sail down the Italian Lake of " Largo di Como " - then down the river of
" ADDA " right down to the sea to the Township of " Po della pila" into the Adriatic sea , then go further on the east coast to then named " Porto d ' Ascoli" There they travelled up the river as far as they could go , tramped over the mountain pass till they reached the " Tevere River ( now known as the Tiber ) and sail down to " Rome " to the Vatican itself there the plundered & carried out all the other things they wanted and enjoyed . When they were finished , usually a week or two , they went back to their home in Switzerland
the same way . with their treasures and other things . These were real bad robbers . As it was happening to often and the vatican as losing a lot of wealth . the Vatican made a financial arangement with these Two Swiss brothers and their followers to to stop raiding them and also supply protection from any others who may want to do the same They supplied the vatican with their own men to guard them for a huge annual financial fee . Today the Swiss Guards -- guard the Vatican in Italy . This one of the reasons that this came about and is still being used today . I was unable to find out whether the Financial agreement is still in place between the Vatican & Switzerland . The answer is well guarded by those in charge . Till we meet again - Regards - edmondsallan
