HOW IT WAS IN REALITY

Chapter 3.
THE EPOCH OF THE XIII CENTURY

1. THE MIGHTY TROJAN WAR AS A REVENGE FOR CHRIST. RUSSIA-HORDE LAUNCHES CRUSADES TO CZAR-GRAD, AND WITHIN A SHORT TIME THE CENTRE OF THE EMPIRE IS TRANSFERRED TO VLADIMIR-SUZDAL RUSSIA.

In 1185 on the Beykoz mountain near Yoros the Emperor Andronicus-Christ was crucified. The outraged provinces, led by the Russia-Horde, started a war the goal of which was vengeance and 'the liberation of the Holy Sepulchre', i.e. capture of Czar-Grad = Jerusalem, the Empire's capital. This was the Trojan War also reflected in various documents under the names of: the Tarquinian War in 'ancient' Rome (allegedly in the VI century BC), the Gothic War in Italy (allegedly of the VI century), the Nika revolt in Czar-Grad (allegedly of the VI century), etc. See [2v].

The Trojan War was one of the biggest events in the history of Europe and Asia. The war was described by Homer, Herodotus and other 'ancient' classical authors, as well as by the Mediaeval Dare, Dictys, etc. 'Ancient' Titus Livy describes it under the name of 'Tarquinian War. While Prokopi Caesarian uses the names 'War with the Goths' and 'the Nika revolt', for example.

The same war is well known under the collective name of the Crusades of the XIII century, seizure of Czar-Grad in 1204, and then the fall of Czar-Grad in 1261. The Trojan War was essentially represented in a series of bloody battles. And as such it was described by 'ancient' Homer who lived in the epoch of the XV-XVI cc. Today in place of 'ancient' Czar-Grad = Troy there survive the ruins of the Yoros fortress on the Bosphorus, where the strait enters the Black Sea, 35 kilometres from Istanbul [].

Czar-Grad was captured in 1204 during the Crusade which today is erroneously called the Fourth. The city was ransacked and burnt by the Horde-Cossacks crusaders and their allies. They are the same 'ancient' Achaeans-Greeks described by Homer in 'The Iliad'. The Achaeans were led by 'ancient' Achilles, aka Russian-Horde prince Svyatoslav []. Those responsible for Andronicus-Christ's crucifixion were captured by the Hordians and were brutally executed. The fall of Czar-Grad was reflected in many chronicles as the fall of 'ancient' Troy allegedly in the XIII century BC; also as the seizure of the biblical Jerusalem by the Roman army allegedly in the I century; and as the seizure of 'most ancient' Babylon, etc.

Modern history attaches a great importance to the Crusades. In our reconstruction their role will grow in significance. The Trojan War of the XIII century was the FIRST WORLD WAR OF THE EARLY MIDDLE AGES. Its outcome predetermined several centuries of the course of world history.

 

2. THE CRUSADES ADVANCED ON TO JERUSALEM = CZAR-GRAD NOT FROM THE WEST, AS WE ARE BEING TOLD TODAY, BUT FROM THE EAST.

In [] we quote the Church-Slavonic book 'The Passion of the Christ'. As it happens, according to church tradition in order to capture Jerusalem the armies marched not from the WEST, but from the EAST. In other words, from Russia-Horde. Also the fact, that the great = 'Mongolian' conquest started shortly after, supports this view. The Scaligerian history later began to claim that The Crusades allegedly advanced to the Holy Land from the West. This is just another distortion of the true history and geography. In [v1] and [v2] there are given many examples when the ancient maps were turned upside down, i.e. North was drawn in the bottom and South - on the top. Consequently East and West were changed places. It is quite possible that on account of this confusion Eastern crusades 'turned into' Western ones and vice versa.

 

3. HELEN OF TROY AND MARY MOTHER OF GOD.

Everyone knows the legend of Helen of Troy, wife of Menelaus. She is one of the main characters in the Trojan War. Between the three 'ancient' goddesses a dispute breaks out – which of them is most beautiful. Each of them praises herself [851], p.71. This seemingly innocent dispute gives rise to the vicious Trojan War. The chronicles tell us that in the forest of Mount Ida (the forest of Judaean mountains?) the famous Judgement of Paris took place. Paris, a son of a Trojan King, judges the contest of 'beauty' between three goddesses presenting a prize of an 'golden apple' to Aphrodite, the goddess of love, who promised him the hand in marriage of the world's most beautiful woman Helen of Sparta [851], p.93. A war breaks out. We would like to point out that the Bible often identifies 'wives' with different types of RELIGIONS [544], v.1. It is possible that the legend of the Judgement of Paris describes a dispute between several religions, which were nominally called 'women-goddesses'. The Trojans chose a Bacchic 'ancient' religion. From three wives-religions they chose the religion of love, Aphrodite.

So here 'ancient' Paris is possibly medieval Paris (Paris, francs, France) and choses for himself the most 'pleasant' goddess-religion Aphrodite. It's worth remembering the erotic cult of the Western European Bacchic Christianity, which blossomed particularly in France in the XII-XV cc. This adoration of the 'Christian Aphrodite' was depictured in various erotic sculptures and drawings which adorned Christian French temples [2v1], ch.1.

Something similar to the "religious choice' of Paris is also known to us from the history of the Ancient Russia. Prince Vladimir who baptised Russia also listened to the representatives of several religions and chose Orthodox Christianity to be the state religion of Russia. Was this choice of Vladimir not reflected in the 'ancient myth' of the choice of Paris, in other words ‘Prus’ (which means P-russian) ? Possibly it's not a coincidence that it concerns Aphrodite, whose unvowelled name FRDT or TRDT could have originated from the word Tartars, Tartar.

The following famous storylines are the phantom-duplicates. 1) "Ancient' Greek Paris and Helen or Venus. 2) Biblical Adam and Eve (and the sly serpent). 3) 'Ancient' Perseus and Andromeda (and the sly serpent /sea monster). 4) 'Ancient' Jason and Medea (and the sly serpent (sleepless dragon) 5) Medieval St. George and the Princess (and the serpent/dragon of the sea).

At the same time, the Trojan War and all its duplicates (Tarquinian War, Gothic War…) are described as the 'wars to avenge the dishonouring of a woman' [2v]. But is it possible, that because of a woman, even one as distinguished and beautiful as this, that such a vicious war could break out? Here quite naturally occurs a thought which puts many things in their place. As there existed a medieval tradition to nominally call different religions 'wives', i.e. women, then the cause of the Trojan = Tarquinian = Gothic war could have been a RELIGIOUS DISPUTE: whose religion or 'wife', was better. The grounds to war was the offence to a religion or 'wife'. There survive sculptural depictions of Religion in the form of a woman, and also Christian Faith is represented in the female form [2v1], ch.5.

Our reconstruction corresponds well to the essence of the Crusades, which primarily and officially, were RELIGIOUSLY MOTIVATED ACTIONS – TO AVENGE THE OFFENCE GIVEN TO THE RELIGION. In other words – revenge for insulting the Mother of God – for the execution of her Son Jesus Christ. Then the Trojan myth acquires a natural explanation – it tells us about an important religious Cross bearing war.

So, the central narrative of the Trojan War is a legend about the offence given to some distinguished woman, which resulted in either a war, or a state coup. The Trojan version tells us about the abduction of the Greek Helen of Sparta, the Tarquinian version of Titus Livy – about the rape of the Roman Lucretia, the Gothic version – about the murder of the Gothic queen Amalasunta. An equivalent story we find in the description of events allegedly of the VI century B.C. told by 'ancient' Herodotus. King Candaules, tyrant of Sardes, 'argues' with Gyges claiming that his wife is the most beautiful woman in the world. A conflict erupts.

On account of Herodotus' [163] famous 'Story' we say the following: this work, as the works by other 'ancient' authors, is by no means a falsification. Herodotus describes the real events of the XII-XVI cc. He himself lived in the epoch of the XVI-XVII cc. Then the later chroniclers erroneously cast him and his writing many centuries back. However, Herodotus' writing was 'carefully edited' according to the recently introduced Scaligerian history. The same was done with the other 'classics'.
