The Goïdels


The Goïdels

§14. It was at this time that Gaedel Glas was born, of Scota daughter of Pharaoh. From her are named the Scottish,

So we say
The Feni are named after Feinius
Meaning without secrets:
Goïdel of the Gaedel Glas rider,
The Scots of Scota.

§15. It was Gaedel Glas who shaped the Gaelic language from the sixty-two languages: here are their names, Bithynian, Scythian, etc.

So says the poet
The languages of the world, see for yourselves
Bithynia, Scythia, Cilicia, Hyrcania, Gothia,
Greece, Germany, Gaul with horror,
Pentapolis, Phrygia, Dalmatia, Dardania.
Pamphylia, Mauritania, Lycaonia so populated,
bactria, Crete, Corsica, Cyprus, Thessaly,
Cappadocia, the noble Armenia, Raetia,
Sicily, the land of the Saracens, Sardinia.
Belgium, Boeotia, Brittany,
The melodious Rhodes, Hispania, Rome,
Rhege, Phenicia, India, Golden Arabia,
Mygdonia, Mazaca, Macedonia.
Parthians, Decay, Syria, Saxons,
Athens, Achaia, Albania,
Palestine, Arcadia, clear Galatia,
Troy, Thessaly, Cyclades.
Moesia, Media, Persian, Francs,
Cyrene, Lacedaemon, Longobards
Thrace, Numidia, Hellas - Hear!
Noble Italy, Ethiopia, Egypt.
Here is the count of unblemished languages
From which Gaedel formed Gaelic:
I know their register of comprehension,
Groups, multiple languages.

§16. Or Sru son of Esru f. Gaedel, he was the leader of the Goïdels who left Egypt after Pharaoh had drowned: seven hundred and seventy years from the Flood until then.
Four hundred and forty years from that time when Pharaoh was drowned, and after Sru f. Esru had come out of Egypt, until the sons of Mil came into Ireland, namely, Eber and Eremon

In this regard we say:
Forty and four hundred years - that's no lie -
From the time the people of God came,
Be certain, on the surface of Mare Rubrum,
Until they disembark at Scene from the crystal clear sea,
They, the sons of Mil, in the land of Ireland.

§17. Four strong ship crews led Sru out of Egypt. There were twenty-four married couples and three mercenaries for each ship. Sru and his son Eber Scot, they were the leaders of the expedition. It was then that Nenual f. Baath f. Nenual f. Feinius Farsaid, prince of Scythia, died: and Sru also died immediately after their arrival in Scythia.

§18. Eber Scotus forcibly removed the Scythian kingship from the descendants of Nenual, until he fell by the hand of Noemius f. Nenual. There was a conflict between Noemius and Boamain f. Eber Scot. Boamain took the throne, until he fell by the hand of Noemius. Noémius took the principality until he fell by the hand of Ogamain f. Boamain in revenge on his father. Ogamain seized the throne until his death. Refill f. Noémius took the kingship, until he fell by the hand of Tat f. Ogamain. Thereafter Tat fell by the hand of Refloir f. Refill. Subsequently, there was a conflict for the principality between Refloir, grandson of Noemius, and Agnomain f. Tat, until Refloir fell by Agnomain's hand.

§19. For this reason the descendants of Gaedil were driven out to the sea, namely Agnomain and Lamfhind his son, so that they were seven years on the sea, traveling the world on the north side. One can well imagine the misfortunes from which they suffered. They had three ships linked together, so that none of them could get away from the others. They had three chiefs after the death of Agnomain on the surface of the great Caspian Sea, Lamfhind and Allot and Caicher the druid.

§20. It was Caicher the druid who gave them the remedy, when the siren sang her melody to them: sleep invaded them to this music. Here is the remedy that Caicher found for them, to melt wax in their ears. It was Caicher who spoke to them, when the great wind pushed them towards the ocean, so that there they suffered a lot of hunger and thirst: until at the end of a week they reached the great a promontory which is north of the Riphean Mountains, and on this promontory they found a spring that tasted like wine, and they feasted there, and slept there three days and three nights. But Caicher the druid said: Get up, he said, we will not rest until we have reached Ireland. What is this place, Ireland? says Lamfhind f. Agnomain. It is further than Scythia, says Caicher. It is not ourselves who will access it, but our children, at the end of three hundred years from today.

§21. They later settled in the Meotic Marshes, and there a son was born in Lamfhind, Eber Glunfhind. He was the chief after his father. Her grandson was Febri. Her grandson was Nuadu.

§22. Brath f. Death f. Ercha f. Allot f. Nuaduf. Nenual f. Febri Glass. Agni Find f. Eber Glunfhind f. Lambhind f. Agnomain f. Tat f. Agnomain f. Boamain f. Eber Scott f. Sru f. Esru f. Gaedel Glas f. Nel f. Feinius Farsaid: it is this Brath who came out of the Marshes along the Tyrrhenian Sea to Crete and Sicily. They arrived in Spain afterwards. They took Spain by force.

§23. As for Agnomain f. Tat is the leader of the Goïdels who left Scythia. He had two sons, Lamfhind and Allot. Lamfhind had a son, Eber Glunfhind. Allot had a son, Eber Dub, during his stay in the Marais. They had two grandsons in the joint reign, Toithecht f. Tetrech f. Eber Dub, and Nenual f. Febri f. Agni f. Eber Glunfhind, there was also Soithecht f. Mantan f. Caicher. Ucce and Occe, two sons of Allot f. Nenual f. Nemed f. Allot f. Ogamain f. Toithecht f. Tetrech f. Eber Dub f. Allot.

§24. Four strong ship crews led the Goïdels to Spain: on each ship fourteen married couples and seven unmarried mercenaries. Brath, a ship's crew. Ucce and Occe, two ship's crews, Mantan, one ship's crew. Thus, they fought three battles after arriving in Spain: a battle against the Tuscans, a battle against the Langobardi, and a battle against the Barchu. But a plague fell upon them, and twenty-four of them died, including Occe and Ucce. Of the two ships, none escaped, except twice five men, including En f. Occe and Ún f. Ucce.

§25. Brath had a good son named Breogan, by whom the Tower and the city were built - Braganza was the name of the city. It was from Breogan's Tower that Ireland was seen on the evening of a winter day. Ith f. Breogan saw her.

So says Gilla Coemain:
Gaedel Glas, from whom descend the Goïdels,
He was a very valuable son of Nel:
He was mighty in the west and in the east,
Nel, son of Feinius Farsaid.
Feinius had two sons - I'm telling the truth -
Nel our father and Nenual,
Nel was born in the East Tower,
Nenual in Scythia, bursting like a shield.
After Feinius, the hero of the ocean,
There was great jealousy between the brothers;
Nel killed Nenual, who was not gentle;
The High King was expelled.
He went to Egypt because of his valor
Until he reached the mighty Pharaoh;
Until he married Scota, of great beauty,
The modest, agile daughter of Pharaoh.

Scota bore a son to noble Nel,
From which was born a great and perfect race:
Gaedel Glas was the name of the man -
Green were his arms and his garment.
The fierce Esru was his son,
A Lord with heavy arms:
The son of Esru, Sru of the ancient armies,
Who deserved the reputation that was attributed to him.
Sru f. Esru f. Gaedel,
Our ancestor, rejoicing with the troops,
It was he who went north to his house,
On the surface of the red Mare Rubrum.
The crews of four ships, this was the count
Of his army along the red Mare Rubrum:
In his plank house, can we say,
Twenty-four married couples.
The prince of Scythia, it is an obvious fact,
The young man whose name was Nenual,
It was then that he died there in his house -
When the Goïdels arrived.

Eber Scotus of the heroes assumed the Kingdom
On the offspring of Nenual without shame,
Until the moment he fell, without gentle kindness,
By the hand of Noemius son of Nenual.
The strong son of Eber, who was called Boamain,
Perfectly pure, to the shore
Of the Caspian Sea he was king,
Until the day it fell from Noemius's hand.
Noemius f. Nenual full of strength
Settled in Scythia, squared like a shield:
The perfect and righteous prince fell
By the hand of Ogamain f. Boamain.
Ogamain was subsequently prince
After Noemius at the right force:
Until his death in his territory, without faith:
After him Refill was king.
Subsequently Refill perishes by the hand
From Tait f. Ogmain:
Tait fell, although he was not weak,
By the hand of Refloir f. Refill.
Reflection and Flawless Agnomain,
Seven years they were in conflict,
Until Refloir crashed down
By the victorious hand of Agnomain.
Noinel and Refill, with a spear point,
Two of Refloir's sons f. Refill,
They drove out Agnomain on the raging sea,
Large and green.

Good were the bosses, it was enough,
Who left Scythia;
Agnomain, Eber without blemish,
The two sons of Tait f. Ogamain.
Allot, Lamfhind with the green thumb,
The two remarkable sons of Agnomain the Brilliant,
Caicher and Cing, glory with victory
The two good sons of Eber with the red mount.
The number of their ships,
Three ships coming on heavy waves;
Three scores on each ship,
Clear words, and women for every third twenty.

Agnomain died, it was not a reproach
In the islands of the Great Caspian Sea.
The place they were for a year
They found it very secret.
They reached the open Libyan sea,
A crossing of six full summer days;
Glas f. Agnomain, who was not contemptible,
Died there, in Cercinie.
They discovered a beautiful island there
On the Libyan Sea with warlike blades:
A year and a season, with glory,
Their stay in this island.
They sailed on the sea,
A brilliant fact, day and night:
The shine of the hands of Shimmering Lamfhind
Was like beautiful candles.
They had four leaders who were not despicable,
After their crossing of the Libyan Sea:
Allot, rapid Lamfhind on the ocean,
Cing and his brother Caicher.
Caicher found a cure for them
Over there against the song of the Sirens:
Here is the remedy that the handsome Caicher found,
Melt wax in their ears.

They found a spring and a land
At Cape Riphéen with great strength,
Afterwards tasting wine:
Their thirst dominated them powerfully.
Deep, deep they slept
For three days without pain,
Until Caicher the Faithful Druid
Awakened noble men impatiently.
It's Caicher, (a great accomplishment!)
Who prophesied to them,
In the Riphée mountains with a cape -
“We have no rest until Ireland. "
"Where is noble Ireland?" "
Said Lamfhind the violent warrior.
"Very far," said Caicher,
“It is not us who will achieve it, but our children. "
They moved their battalion forward with anger,
Towards the south, beyond Cape Riphéen;
The descendants of Gaedel, with purity,
They landed in the swamps.

A glorious son was born there
De Lamfhind f. Agnomain;
Eber Glunfhind, pure the Griffin,
Febri's curly-haired grandfather.
Gaedel's family, the quick and white,
Was three hundred years in this country:
They resided there from then on,
Until the arrival of the victorious Brath.
Brath, the noble son of the faithful Death
Came to Crete, Sicily,
The crew of four ships of safe navigation,
On starboard towards Europe, then Spain.
Occe, Ucce and flawless,
The two sons of Allot f. Nenual;
Mantan f. Caicher, Brath the faithful,
They were the four leaders.
Fourteen men with their wives
Were the crew of every ship full of warriors,
As well as six noble mercenaries;
They won three battles in Spain.
Noble the first battle - I won't hide it -
That they won against the army of the Tuscans;
A battle against the Bachra with violence,
And a battle against the Langobardi.
It was after the grim battle
What a plague of a day fell on them:
The people of the ships of the sons of Allot
Without fail were all dead except ten people.

Ún and Én made it out,
Two noble sons of strong chiefs:
Subsequently Bregon was born,
Father of Bile the solid and the furious.
He fought a great number of fights and battles
Against the multicolored army of Spain:
Bregon the howler with brave deeds,
In the battles, by him, was built Braganza.
Bregon f. Brath, sweet and good,
He had a son, Mil:
The seven sons of Mil - good their army -
Including Eber and Eremon.
With Dond, and Airech in battle,
Including Ir, with Arannan,
Including Armorgen with a luminous face,
And with Colptha on the sword.
The ten sons of Bregon without lies,
Brega, Fuat, and Murthemne,
Cualnge, Cuala, although it was glorious,
Ebleo, Nar, Ith, and Bile.
Ith f. Bregon to melodious glory
First came to Ireland:
He is the first of the men who lived there,
From the noble descent of Gaedil the Mighty.
