The strange career of Good King Lud

Tonight, April 22, London Earth Mysteries Circle will be giving a talk on The Strange Career of Good King Lud.

According to Geoffrey of Monmouth's History of the Kings of Britain, Lud was a king of Britain in pre-Roman times. His fortress was built in London and he is supposed to be buried at Ludgate. However, he also appears as a mythological figure in the Welsh tales of the Mabinogion.

London Earth Mysteries Circle meets at 7pm on every other Tuesday from 7pm at the Theosophical Society, 50 Gloucester Place, London W1U 8EA.

I see the Circle is doing a talk on May 13 on Elen, Goddess of the Leys. Any idea who this is? It might be an interesting talk to go to.

Me again. Don't worry about answering my last comment as I decided not to be lazy and use the Google search function on your blog to look up Elen. Interesting woman.

I live in bath and am writing a book on Bath it's various mystery schools , celtic origins and geomancy and much more but anyway...

I have identified over the last 8 years that the founder of bath -bladud- IS king lud and coming from wales i know that lud is the latin of lludd - the father of gwyn (king of the fair folk). And that the welsh lineage comes trickling through ireland and that ''lludd llaw eraint'' - lud of the silver hand is actually -LUGH- the inheritor of the kingship of the tuatha de danaan after the death of Nuada(silver hand) ...

It is just one point that can be proven where the early church re-wrote all the early legends- denegrating men ,women, druids and gods as they went.. My book is fucking contraversial but thats great- on my blog there is a recent interview that i have done --
It's part of a series that will be continued over the coming weeks..


take it easy..
