A BLOODLINE OF KINGS
An Epic Journey Into the Oldest Stories of Mankind
A BLOODLINE OF KINGS
THE ANCIENT OF DAYS
The Battle for your Heart has been raging since the Ancient Days, when your oldest ancestors walked the earth. In those Ancient Days, things were different. Angels and Demons fought among mankind. What changed?
For the first time, legend and history has been pieced together in The Ancient of Days, A Bloodline
of Kings. Areoch, the son of an ancient Sumerian King, sets out on a quest to become a man.
Re’Amu, an abandoned son whose world was destroyed, seeks to calm the waters of his heart. Both
will discover the power of ancient days, both of light and of darkness, still is hidden around them.
As the Oldest evil arises from the sludge of the earth, they will find they have a crucial part to play
within the story of history: for much good or for great ill.
History Behind The Story
The Sumerians Kings List
The Bloodline of Kings entwines the oldest surviving history with what many believe to be myth. Set
in a similar world circa 2800 BCE, the story varies very little from the historical records we have from time.
Archaeological records unanimously and cross-culturally attest to our ancestors being… different.
From the Chiranjivi in the Hindu culture, to the length of lives listed in Genesis, to the records of the
Sumerian Kings List, we see extraordinary long lives and the plans of Gods entwined with that of men.
We see records of angelic and demonic powers struggling, apparently over geological strongholds and
the humans dwelling therein.
The Bloodline of Kings is primarily based around the time of Sargon the Great and the invasion of the
Gutium as recorded on the Sumerian Kings List. The term “Gutium” has no agreed-upon translation.
Some believe it refers to “barbarians” while others record the translation as “shadows of men”.
Landscapes: While the landscape is slightly different from recorded maps of the ancient Sumerian
Kingdoms, early Mesopotamia, and the early Indus river civilizations, many city names are the same.
The Kingdom of Agade could be translated “Akkad” and is a historically the first kingdom established
under Sargons rule. Reference Genesis 10:10
Technologies: Oral tradition was the first historical record known to man followed by the world-changing invention of proto-writing and eventually the written word. This story reflects both the early Oral tradition and the earliest forms of Cuneiform writing. Similarly, very little is known about the earliest form of sea-travel except for many of the circumstances listed in this novel. Boats were woven from reads, riding upon animals was a new design, and bronze was a commodity highly sought after for the building of tools and weapons.
People: Many characters within are real, some borrowed from later times and others who perhaps actually encountered each other in the historical world.
Sargon the Great: King over the Kingdom of Akkad (Agade). Can be found on the Sumerian Kings list as the cupbearer to Ur-Zabab.
Enhuanna (Enheduanna): The daughter of Sargon the Great, and the first recorded female priestess. She is believed to have been expelled from Ur during a time of great turmoil and then re-instated as High Priestess.
Melkezadek: Unknown origins, though believed to be a priest, king, or other ancient figure. Can be found in Genesis
Abram: Is thought to have lived or traveled through ancient Ur and can be found in Genesis, often seen as the father of Judaism.
