In this latest book, the author continues an historic investigation into the origins of St Patrick and the significance of his family’s royal status. Loosening the ropes that bind us to a traditional historical enquiry, the reader is invited to enter the deeper and more dangerous seas of legend and uncertainty that surrounds St Patrick’s story. Was Patrick’s father, Calpurnius, really a ‘Scottish’ prince? According to local historians, two of St Patrick’s sisters were senior members of the Breton aristocracy founded at the time of the Emperor Magnus Maximus in 385 CE. Another ancient legend records that St Patrick’s ancestors were Jewish and that his family had close connections to the founders of the Merovingian Dynasty. If there is any truth in these claims, then St Patrick was related to the most sacred and controversial royal family of them all – the holy lineage of Jesus, King Arthur and the Bloodline of the Grail.
