Realm of the Ring Lords
Laurence Gardner

Realm of the Ring Lords

The legendary quests for the One Ring and the Holy Grail are brought together for the very first time in the same arena. From Arthurian romance to the world of J.R.R. Tolkien, these stories are enveloped within the magical lore of Elphame. However, the myths are based on no mere fantasy, but on an engaging and continual history of real events and characters in descent from the ancient Ring Lords of Scythia.

The enchanting history of the Ring Lords has been largely confined to popular mythology and half-remembered battles between good and evil. The ancient guardians of our culture have never featured positively in academic teachings, although they were once venerated as the Shining Ones. Instead, their reality was quashed and their story diminished. This led to a parallel diminution of their physical presence, and their revered noble existence dwindled into tales of fairies, elves and pixies.

Dealing with numerous aspects, from Sleeping Beauty to Robin Hood and Count Dracula, Realm of the Ring Lords reveals how a prestigious sovereign heritage has been strategically suppressed by parliamentary and church doctrine, facilitated by a forged document which has controlled all monarchical and governmental practices in Western Europe for over 1,200 years.
