There can be little reasonable doubt that Jesus was actually married. As we see will in Chapter Eight on the marriage of Jesus Christ, the heir to the Davidic line was required by law to marry. Not only that - they were required to sire at least two sons (an "heir and a spare," as they say about the British royal family.) Such present-day lifestyle choices as live-in partners or single-sex relationships simply did not exist in first century Judea. Marriage for those of the Davidic line was ritualized to the extent of making redundant any necessity for romanticism. The necessity of continuing the survival of the line in such a rural and, at the same time, persecuted community was paramount to all. Jesus and his wife, Mary Magdalene, after fleeing from the Holy Land, had several children who were brought up in a Jewish community in southern France. Jesus had been known as a "fisher" from the time that he was admitted into the priesthood in the Order of Melchizedek, as described in Hebrews 5. In this way the House of Judah became a dynasty of Priest-Kings who were referred to in the Grail mythology as the "Fisher Kings." The line of descent from these Fisher Kings became the French House del Acqs. The name "Acqs" comes from aquae meaning "waters" and the family was a major influence in the French area of Aquitaine. The Merovingian dynasty came from this line and were the Counts of Toulouse and Narbonne and the Princes of Septimania Midi in what is now south-west France. In the fifth century, it seems that the descendants of these children married into the royal line of the Franks, bringing about the Merovingian dynasty.
As we have seen before in this chapter, the Roman Catholic Church made a pact with Clovis, one of the Merovingian kings, in 496 AD, in which it pledged itself for all time to the Merovingian bloodline. This was presumably because they recognized the true identity of the Merovingian bloodline. Clovis was offered the title of Holy Roman Emperor (or "New Constantine," as the title was then phrased), and therefore did not become King, although of course, by Merovingian succession traditions, he was recognized as such.
It seems conclusive that the Church played a part in the assassination of Dagobert II and was never able to forgive itself for this. This resulted in the betrayal of the Merovingians and it was vital to the Church that this knowledge was not widely known, as it would have played straight into the hands of Rome's enemies. Rome was, however, unable to suppress the truth completely and one of the ways in which the truth of the matter was revealed was allegorically, through such literature as the romances of the Holy Grail.
Thus the Holy Grail had two simultaneous identities. The first was that of the "Sang Real": the "Real" or "Royal" blood of which the Knights Templar were guardians. Second, it would have been the vessel or receptacle of Jesus' blood (or rather semen) - that is, the womb of Mary Magdalene. Thus many of the churches that are supposedly dedicated to the "Virgin" Mary in the form of "Black Virgins" or "Black Madonnas" were in fact been dedicated to the Magdalene.
The Holy Grail may also have been, literally speaking, the treasure that had been taken in 70 AD when the emperor Titus plundered the Temple of Jerusalem. This vast wealth eventually found its way to the Pyrenees mountain range, and is today reputed to be in the hands of the Priory of Sion. As well as this treasure, the Temple of Solomon is likely to have contained birth certificates, marriage certificates and other documents relating to the royal line of Israel. It would no doubt also give evidence of Jesus Christ's claim to be King of the Jews.
There is no evidence that Titus or his soldiers found such documentation. Logic, however, would lead us to believe that the soldiers would have been happy to carry away the copious amounts of gold and jewels that were available, thus leaving the way clear for the more sensitive documentation to be hidden away.
The descendants of Jesus Christ had reached positions of influence and importance by 1100 in Europe and also, through Godfroi de Bouillon, in Palestine. Even though they may have been well aware of their ancestry, they may not have been able to prove it without the documentary or other proof that remained at the Temple of Solomon. This would explain the excavations that the Knights Templar made around the area of the Temple at that time. On the basis of the evidence that Leigh, Baigent, and Lincoln found, it appears that not only were the Knights Templar sent to Jerusalem to find something, but that they did, in fact, succeed, and returned with it to England. It is unclear what happened to it then, but it is known that the fourth Grand Master of the Order of the Temple, Bertrand de Blanchefort, concealed something near Rennes-le-Chateau and German miners were brought to construct a hiding place. There is speculation over what this "something" may have been, ranging from Jesus' marriage certificate and/or birth certificates of his children to his mummified body. Any of these may have been passed to the heretical Cathar sect in the area of Languedoc near Rennes-le-Chateau, who were massacred mercilessly by 30,000 of the Pope's soldiers in 1209. Treasure was hidden at the Cathar stronghold of Montsegur, which was under siege for ten months until March 1244.
Once the Merovingians re-established themselves in Jerusalem, they could better afford to make the facts known. This explains why the Grail romances, which were associated so closely with the Knights Templar, started appearing at this time. Eventually no doubt the full truth of the Merovingian kings would have come out and they would have ruled extensively over Europe, replacing the Pope and making Jerusalem the capital of the Christian world. If Jesus had been accepted as a mortal prophet, a priest-King and the descendant of the Davidic line by Christians, he may also have been accepted by the Muslims and Jews. That would obviously have changed Middle East history drastically. However, this was not the course of history and the Frankish kingdom of Jerusalem did not succeed. With the loss of the Holy Land in 1291 to the Muslims, the Merovingians were sidelined and the Knights Templar rendered redundant. Since that time, the Roman Catholic Church has continued to strengthen at the expense of the truth.
