Hi gang, The Forum has been kind of quiet lately, but my guess is that you monitor the postings from time to time.
I have been "on the record" for a long time with my account of how Richard and Roger from Flagi, Lower Normandy, France went to England ca. 1165 each bearing only ONE name with NO SURNAME. They were FROM Flagi (known as "Flagium" , the original latin name of the place, during that period).
The place had developed from the estate-name "Flaviacus", called thus from the rootword, Flavius, the name of the estate owner in the early 400's, with the "iacus" added according to custom to add "iacus" or "ianus" to the name of the owner to name the estate.
This much has been previously discussed more than once since my early work on the matter.
Now the "wrinkle".
The question raises itself, "What Flavius had an estate in Gaul and was, in fact, THE FLAVIUS of interest to us?
I am suggesting that the leading candidate was Flavius Constantius, III that historic warrior, -he whom Historians have said was also called "Uther Pendragon", father of King Arthur. Interesting idea, no?
Google will be a source for your learning about UTHER PENDRAGON. Some of the things I found there have advanced the ideas I'm laying out in this posting.
