Jesus As Claudius

Reading between the lines in the works of Robert Graves shows that he believes there are strong links between the Emperor Claudius and Jesus. The most obvious link is that they are the same person.

jesus-as-claudius A timeline comparison shows that this is theoretically possible. The dates are not an exact match. Claudius birth date is known exactly it was the date of the sanctification of the temple of the three Gauls in Vienne.

There are arguments about the birthdate of Jesus, but it is close enough that a substitution would not have been noticed.

The dates for Josephus, whose writings are famous as it is believed they provide a brief historical record of Jesus are entered to show that he lives in a significantly later time frame.

Claudius is Jesus

In this scenario Jesus message was deliberately defined and propagated by the Roman State, who found the Jewish faith totally contradictory to it’s own fundamental beliefs. Jesus was one and the same person as the Emperor Claudius. Claudius, intellectually strong though physically disabled was sent to Judaea. Having completed his ministry, he was not crucified, he returned to Rome. Claudius disabilities were caused by a miss-managed fake cruxifiction.

One might ask how a complete stranger could be launched into Judaean society. In fact the gospels themselves give us one possible explanation. That Jesus was hidden away from the public gaze from his twelfth to his thirtieth year and then suddenly launched his ministry in Galilee, not in Judaea itself.

The objective was to establish Jesus in the persona of the Messiah complete with a fabricated genealogy, deliver the chosen message and then terminate his ministry to make a folk hero of the persona he had created.

Claudius then returned to Rome, became Emperor and propagated stories about himself.

claudius Claudius had close relations with the Piso family and therefore according to many genealogies with Mariamne Aria, who is proposed as the real life Mary Magdelene

Certainly Claudius the Emperor had many mistresses any one of which under this scenario might have been Mary Magdelene.

This version does not require multiple alter egos, merely careful stage management.

As Pharaoh of Egypt, Claudius adopted the royal titulary Tiberios Klaudios, Autokrator Heqaheqau Meryasetptah, Kanakht Djediakhshuemakhet (“Tiberius Claudius, Emperor and ruler of rulers, beloved of Isis and Ptah, the strong bull of the stable moon on the horizon”).He could only have become Pharoh if he had been chosen by the senior princess Mirimamne of Parthia otherwise known as Mary Magdelene

Jesus is Claudius

A totally separate speculation but with identical outcomes. This Scenario is that the Roman State was actually controlled by the Egyptian State, who also disapproved of the Jewish beliefs.

In second scenario Jesus’ maternal grandfather was Alexander Helios, son of Cleopatra VII and Mark Anthony and his paternal grandmother was Cleopatra VIII daughter of Cleopatra VII and Julius Caesar. To make it doubly incestuous Cleopatra VIII ‘s partner was Caesarion, her full brother.

They operated under thinly veiled aliases,  Helios is known in the scriptural record as Heli and Cleopatra VIII is known as “Cleopatra Of Jerusalem”. The mission in Jerusalem was the same; to create a religion to replace the jewish religion. This Jesus in later life became the Emperor of rome, Claudius.

Claudius himself, severely disabled lived out his life in obscurity.

Interestingly when Claudius succeeded Caligula as emperor his mentor in Rome, who is said to have pleaded his case before the senate was Herod Aggrippa, grandson of Herod and therefore quite possibly great grandson of Antonius.

Someone else


There are many other theories about Jesus real identity; either a son of Herod the Great, or the King of Edessa or a son of Juba of Mauritania.

For all of these later scenario’s Jesus may have gone to Rome and there been substituted for an ailing Claudius, who was then permitted peaceful retirement.

In some of these scenarios Jesus retired to the east (Parthia or even further?)

John Stanley-26th April 1355


'Looks like we are going to see a bit of excitement, John. The Captain tried to get an agreement from the Prince that if there is surf running across the channel to Arcachon we will turn back to Bordeaux, but the Prince would hear none of it. Instead, he has offered to provide insurance for all three ships. If they are damaged or sunk, the owners will be compensated and every sailor who makes the passage will be given a bounty payment. What none of this seems to take into account is that if we sink in rough, fast-flowing waters we might all drown.'

John raised his eyebrows. 'But that is what we are going to do?'

'Yes, despite the fact that surf running accross the entrance is not uncommon and the deep water channel moves continually. In the end, the Prince attacked their captains on their weakest point, their professional pride! He threw down the gauntlet. He offered to take the Sally first through the channel, and to take control during the passage.' He raised his brow. 'We are going into the Bay of Arcachon, come what may! '

John Stanley - 22 July 1355

An hour later John walked with Ximene close to the river along the valley below St Feriole. It was the very essence of a summer’s day. The sun was fierce but in the shadow of the trees, it was cool and fragrant. The trees and shrubs along the riverbank hid their progress, from the Château, from St Feriole.

Eventually they reached a point where John thought it was safe to emerge from cover. To his satisfaction the stream extended into a pool with a sandy beach, shaded by trees. Where the stream entered the pool there was a flat grassy area, almost circular. Behind this, the bulk of two mountain ridges provided a splendid backdrop. He looked around once more ‘Not just a good training ground but a great training ground. If the Greek heroes knew about this they might be tempted to join me, to train with me’

Ximene laughed out loud. He turned to look at her. She had removed her outer clothes and was wearing a white chemise, cut short so that it barely reached her knees. Around her waist, she wore a plaited leather belt, obviously fashioned from the multitude of leather straps to be found in the tackle room.

She ran her hands down over her breasts. ‘When you were unconscious I heard you muttering about gods and goddesses, so  I have decided that from now on, for you, I will be the goddess.’

The Prisoner of FoixVol 1 of the series—The Treasure of Trencavel

Aquitaine, an English possession, is in crisis. It is under threat from neighbouring nations and internal dissension.

The Black Prince, King Edward III’s eldest son has been given the task of taking command in Aquitaine.

Suddenly there is an opportunity. Ximene Trencavel is the heiress to the lands of Occitan, to the east of Aquitaine: lands controlled by the Franks. Ximene wants independence, both for herself and for Occitan.

A union between Aquitaine and Occitan would be mutually beneficial. The Black Prince undertakes a secret journey to meet Ximene to negotiate a marriage contract. It is, however, a marriage neither of them really wants.

Meanwhile, the  Franks plot to murder Ximene to prevent ,not just the marriage, but any kind of union between England and Occitan.

The Eagle Of CarcassonneVol II of the series—The Treasure of Trencavel

The loose alliance between Ximene Trencavel and the Black Prince is under threat.

The Prince invades Occitan, to show his support for Ximene but it becomes an invasion which creates more problems than it solves.

The Prince has fallen hopelessly in love with Joan of Kent and Joan is now determined to marry him and become the next Queen of England.

Joan is therefore  determined to convince Ximene that she should not marry the Prince.

Part of her strategy is to encourage Ximene’s relationship with John Stanley—one of the Princes bodyguards—not an easy task as both John and Ximene have doubts about their compatibility.

However, John is grievously injured in a battle and Ximene commits herself to nurse him back to health.
