The “Mero-” or “Mer-” element in the name suggests a sea or ocean (see Old English “mere,” Latin “mare,” or even the Modern English word “mermaid”, etc.). The “Salian” in “Salian Franks” may be a reference to salt, a reminder of their pre-migration home on the shores of the North Sea (alternatively, it may refer to the Isala or IJssel river behind which their homeland, the Salland, may have been located).
Probably we are heading towords the most controversial subject matter.
But I am helpless.For long time I was reading and persuing facts about the present “Afghan problem”. During this search on internet ,I come across so many new facts that lead me towards “ Ram”… “Vanvasi Ram”.
“Ram” means a warrior who fights for Mother India ( Bharatvarsh). Ram means a warrior who choose to go to “vanvas”(Exiled) to save Mother India.Ram means the sons of Ikshvaku. Ram means suryavanshi ( Sunline )warrior of Aryavrat .
This book is written ,out of gratitude towards Great warriors, who chosen the path of sacrifice and “vanvas”(Exile) to defend “ the gates of India”. Unfortunately we forget them all.
Now let us go straight towards the facts that leads us towards our “Ram”…..Vanvasi Ram….!
“ Merovech (Latin: Meroveus or Merovius) is the semi-legendary founder of the Merovingian dynasty of the Salian Franks (although Chlodio may in fact be the founder), which later became the dominant Frankish tribe. He allegedly lived in the first half of the fifth century. His name is a Latinization of a form close to the Old High German given name Marwig, lit. “famed fight” (cf. mari “famous” + wig “fight”) compare modern Dutch mare “renowned” and vecht “fightThe first Frankish royal dynasty called themselves Merovingians (“descendants of Meroveus”) after him.
According to another legend, Merovech was conceived when Pharamond’s wife encountered a Quinotaur, a sea monster which could change shapes while swimming. Though never stated, it is implied that she was impregnated by it. This legend was related by Fredegar in the seventh century and may have been known earlier. The legend is probably a back-formation or folk etymology used to explain the Salian Franks’ origin as a sea coast dwelling people and was based on the name itself. The “Mero-” or “Mer-” element in the name suggests a sea or ocean (see Old English “mere,” Latin “mare,” or even the Modern English word “mermaid”, etc.). The “Salian” in “Salian Franks” may be a reference to salt, a reminder of their pre-migration home on the shores of the North Sea (alternatively, it may refer to the Isala or IJssel river behind which their homeland, the Salland, may have been located). The legend could also be explained in a much easier way. The sea monster could have been a foreign conqueror, coming from the sea, taking the dead king’s (Chlodio or Pharamond) wife to legitimise his rule.”
Yes , It is beginning ….the history unfolds its truth , with the help of the legendary king “Merovech”..In coming facts we will see that the Merovingian king’s ancestors were the great defenders of the gates of India, the kings of Kabul and Zabul, whose name has been all but forgotten by an ungrateful people. These were men of peerless courage and a soul of steel forged in the fire of war. They were the sword arm of Dharma, defending the land of the Bharatavarsh against those who would seek to defile it by their touch.
Now let us check the further facts……
“ The Merovingians (also Merovings) were a Salian Frankish dynasty that Merovech came to rule the Franks in a region (known as Francia in Latin) largely corresponding to ancient Gaul from the middle of the 5th century. Their politics involved frequent civil warfare among branches of the family. During the final century of the Merovingian rule, the dynasty was increasingly pushed into a ceremonial role. The Merovingian rule was ended March 752 when Pope Zachary formally deposed Childeric III.
Zachary’s successor, Pope Stephen II, re-confirmed and crowned Pepin the Short in Childeric’s place in 754 beginning the Carolingian monarchy and early introduction of the Holy Roman Empire.
They were sometimes referred to as the “long-haired kings” (Latin reges criniti) by contemporaries, for their symbolically unshorn hair (traditionally the tribal leader of the Franks wore his hair long, as distinct from the Romans and the tonsured clergy). The term “Merovingian” comes from medieval Latin Merovingi or Merohingi (“sons of Merovech”), an alteration of an unattested Old West Low Franconian form, akin to their dynasty’s Old English name Merewiowing .
The Merovingian dynasty owes its name to the semi-legendary Merovech (Latinised as Meroveus or Merovius), leader of the Salian Franks, and emerges into wider history with the victories of his son Childeric I (reigned c.457 – 481) against the Visigoths, Saxons, and Alemanni. Childeric’s son Clovis I (481 – 511) went on to unite most of Gaul north of the Loire under his control around 486, when he defeated Syagrius, the Roman ruler in those parts.
Very little is in fact known about the course of the 7th century due to a scarcity of sources, but Merovingians remained in power until the 8th century.
Clotaire’s son Dagobert I (died 639), who had sent troops to Spain and pagan Slavic territories in the east, is commonly seen as the last powerful Merovingian King.
Few names of Kings
– Guntram : king of Burgundy (died 592)
– Sigebert III : king of Austrasia (died ca. 656)
-Dagobert II, king of Austrasia (died 679)
Merovingians in pseudo-history / popular culture
Various myths have the Merovingians as descendants of the Trojans, or of a five-headed sea monster known as the Quinotaur. The Merovingians are extensively featured in the book The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail, in which they are claimed to be the descendants of Jesus, based on a hoax originating with Pierre Plantard in the mid-20th century. The 2006 film, The Da Vinci Code, based on a book by Dan Brown, is a fictional treatment of themes from Holy Blood. In it the main character, Sophie, discovers that she is a descendant of the Merovingian blood line as well as Jesus Christ.” (Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)
Yes, my search began with the names of Merovingian kings
The king names Guntram , Sigebert III and Dagobert II and their “ long hair”, puzzled me. My intuition compeled me to go for further details.And the details I encountered plunged me into the sea of deep pathos, sorrows and grief.
Yes , it is Holy blood. It is Holy blood of the world.They ever suffer on befalf of people.They ever choose the path of Exile ,suffering and sacrifices , the path chosen by their great ancestors. Unfortunately , people worship their ancestors but don’t recognise them.The “Vanvas” of Ram still continue.
Now let me conyey you the facts that plunged me into deep pathos and anguish.
(1) I come accross the fact that there is a “Merwede river”
The Merovingian Dynasty probably derived its name from this river. (See Emil Rückert ) .
“ Merwede river”
The Merwede (etymology uncertain, possibly derived from the ancient Dutch (Merwe or Merowe) word meaning “wide water”) is the name of several interconnected stretches of river in The Netherlands, all part of the Rhine-Meuse-Scheldt delta. The Meuse river joins the Waal at Woudrichem to form the Boven Merwede (Upper Merwede). A few kilometers downstream it splits into the Beneden Merwede (Lower Merwede) on the right and the Nieuwe Merwede (New Merwede) on the left. All these rivers are tidal. The Nieuwe Merwede joins the Bergse Maas near Lage Zwaluwe to form the Hollands Diep estuary, and separates the Island of Dordrecht from the Biesbosch National Park. The Beneden Merwede splits into the Noord River and Oude Maas near Papendrecht.
In medieval times there was no such distinction. The Merwede (or “Merwe” in Middle Dutch) was the name of a continuous stretch of river, considered to be the lower part of the river Waal (being a major distributary branch of the Rhine). Although the name Merwede is currently only used between the towns of Woudrichem and Papendrecht, during its early history it carried on his name all the way to the sea – including the rivers currently named Noord river and Nieuwe Maas.
The situation changed during the later Middle Ages, when a major flood forced the Meuse river to shift its main course towards the Merwede as well. From that moment on, several stretches of the original Merwede were named Meuse instead and served as the primary outflow of that river. These are currently known as the Oude Maas and Nieuwe Maas. However, during another series of severe floods (such as the St. Elizabeth flood) the river Meuse (and, to a lesser extent, the river Rhine as well) found an additional path towards the sea, resulting in the creation of the Biesbosch and Hollands Diep. Because of this, the influence of the river Meuse on its former estuary branches slowly diminished. In recent centuries the influence of the Meuse has decreased even further, to the point that the major stretches of river called Oude Maas and Nieuwe Maas were essentially cut off from the river Meuse completely.
(2) Maru / Manu / mermaid
Historian J.P. Mittal mentions in his book “History of ancient India From 4250 b.c. to 637 A.d.” that the term “Maru” and “Manu” are similar terms . ( P.395)
(3) Toxandria / Taksh shila
Toxandria was the classical region in Netherlands and Belgium. The Salian Franks that settled the area in the 4th century became known as Toxandrians. These tribes gave rise to the Merovingian dynasty that came to dominate what is now Belgium and France.
CHARLES WILLIAM WASON helps us to know about the term “Toxandria”. In his book “The ancient geography of India” he m entioned that…
“The copper plate obtained by Mr.Roberts ,containing the name of Takhasila,the Pali form of Takshasila, from which the greek obtained their Taxila.”
“Toxandria is the classical name for a region between the Meuse and the Scheldt rivers in the Netherlands and Belgium. The name is also spelled Taxandria. The Salian Franks that settled the area in the 4th century became known as Toxandrians. These tribes gave rise to the Merovingian dynasty that came to dominate what is now Belgium and France.
In the ensuing years, the Toxandrians did not continue to collectively wander from one place to another as other Germanic tribes, but instead began to expand their territory outwards. The Romans were soon again under attack with the emergence of the first strong leader Meroveus, after whom the Merovingian dynasty would be named. Notably, his son, Childeric I made further agreements that expanded their territory while aiding the Romans in driving out several invaders from around Orléans and Angers. In the ensuing years, Childeric’s son Clovis I emerged as the dominant force who would, through his military might, add parts of present day Germany to his kingdom and shape what was to become modern day France.”(Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)
I felt something like” Marwad” and “ Takshashsila” bubbling there in Netherland .
(4) Lakki Marwat in Hindukush
Further we can find “ Lakki Marwat “ District in the North-West Frontier Province of present day Pakistan.
Lakki Marwat is one of the Southern District of Khyber PakhtunKhawa in Pakistan. It was created as an administrative District on July 1, 1992, prior to which it was a Tehsil of Bannu District.
Etymology of word explains us that there are two different stories about the “Lakki” part of the District’s name. One story says that since the main town of current District Head Quarter lies at the bottom or tail (called as “Lakai” in local dialect) of the entire geographic area inhabited by Marwat tribe therefore, it is called Lakai or Lakki Marwat. Another story links this name to one Lakki Ram or Lukko Ram, a Hindu trader who is considered to be the original founder of this town. .
The second part of astory says that the District’s name comes from the warrior tribe of Marwat who has inhabited the entire area for several centuries.
” Lakki derives from Pali language, which is equivalent of Laksmi, goddess of beauty and fortune. The last part of its name is “emarta’watta ”( AmritaWatta) means source of elixir. By the revages of time it changed to Marwat. It is a metaphor for the river Gambeela.”
Some mentions it as “Lakh (lac) Marwad” too.
Bannu : Paradise Lost
Bannu District is one of the twenty four districts of the Khyber PakhtunKhawa province of Pakistan, it is represented in the Provincial Aseembly by four MPAs. The chief city of the district is Bannu. The major industries are cloth weaving and the manufacture of cotton fabrics, machinery, and equipment. Bannu is famous for its weekly Jumma fair. Bannu is very green amidst rugged and dry mountains and has very fertile land. Early English visitors called it a “paradise”.
Merovingians / Marawad / Marwat
Yes , Root of the word “ Merovingians” lies there in the word “Marawad”.
Hwen Thsang ,The last and best of chinese piligrim, who first visited Takshasila,in a.d. 603,and again in a.d. 643,on his return to China.The royal family was extinct, and the province, which had previously been subject to Kapisa, or Capisa was then a dependency of kashmir.(The ancient geography of India”CHARLES WILLIAM WASON p-92)
With partition of Bharatvarsha we also opted to disconnect our history from that of Vanvasi Ram. We opted to be disconnected from our history.
The tide of the time proceed further…….
House of Brabant
“ Brabant, feudal duchy that emerged after the decline and collapse of the Frankish Carolingian empire in the mid-9th century. Centred in Louvain (now Leuven) and Brussels, it was a division of the former duchy of Lower Lorraine, which was split up into Brabant, Luxembourg, Hainaut, Namur, and other small feudal states.
It became an independent duchy in 1190 and is now divided between the southern Netherlands and north-central Belgium.
Duchy of Brabant
The Duchy of Brabant was a historical region in the Low Countries. Its territory consisted essentially of the three modern-day Belgian provinces of Flemish Brabant, Walloon Brabant and Antwerp, the Brussels-Capital Region and most of the present-day Dutch province of North Brabant.
The Flag of Belgium is based on the colors of Brabant’s coat of arms: black, yellow, and red.
In Roman times, the territory was situated in the Roman provinces of Belgica and Germania Inferior and inhabited by the Belgae, who were of both Celtic and Germanic origin. At the end of the Roman period they were conquered by the Germanic Franks.
The region’s name is first recorded as the Carolingian shire pagus Bracbatensis, located between the rivers Scheldt and Dijle, from bracha “new” and bant .”
In fact House of House of Leuven is clue to Lau nandan. Launandan made Sri Rama Vishwa samrat. Brussels and Belgium has roots in Bhabhar HImalayan Belt. The deep ancient forest area.
Bhabhar is the region south of the Lower Himalayas and the Siwalik Hills It is the alluvial apron of sediments washed down from the Siwaliks along the northern edge of the Indo-Gangetic Plain.
Brussels /Belgium /Bhabhar Belt
The name Bhabhar is derived from a local tall growing grass, Eulaliopsis binata used for manufacture of paper, and rope.Bhabhar is the gently-sloping coarse alluvial zone below the Siwalik Hills (outermost foothills of Himalaya) where streams disappear into permeable sediments. The underground water level is deep in this region, then rises to the surface in the Terai below where coarse alluvium gives way to less permeable silt and clay.
House of Lauven clue to Lau nandan.

Katyuri / Catuvellauni / Launandan
Learned Historian of Kumaon region shri Badri Datt Pandey wrote history of Kumaon .He says that Katyuri kings came from Ayodhya. They were of Bargujar clan and direct descendent of Lau ,edler son of Shri Ram. Now find “Catuvellauni ” , Brigantes ,Gangani and Causi (River Kaushiki) tribes in Britain.We find Lau nandan (Lowonidonjon that is LOndon) and River Tamas (Temes -Thames) in Britain.. We find Gwyddel and Kumaon (Cumbria in Britain. The Belgic tribes (Bargujar -Brabant) tribes also entered Britain. Then HOuse of Lauven is it not clear clue to Lau nandan?
BALOND BADRI / BOLGIOS
I want to remind you that King of Uttarakhand are called “Balond -Badri”- Chalta Badri (p=102). The book link will tell you story of Balond Badri. Then read about “Bolios” who took leadership of war against Macedonia and Greece. Then Bolgios reached Britain . They did not come back because we became Baudh meanwhile and forget Ram.
