Exilarchy of the Throne of David


Arthur J. Zuckerman, A Jewish Princedom in Feudal France

The first Jewish ruler of the House of David in Narbonne was called Machir. Machir of Narbonne had several wives as did the Frankish monarchs and many of the aristocrats at that time. The son of Machir was William while the son of Pepin was Charlemagne and the son of Charlemagne was Louis. William (the son of Machir) ruled over the area of Septimania. He was made Duke of Aquitaine and is referred to as "King of the Goths" since the area of southern France was a place of Gothic settlement. Descendants of Machir intermarried with French monarchy and upper echelons of the aristocracy. Their descendants helped fertilize the nobility of France, Flanders, Scotland, and England.

The British House of King David! by Athol Bloomer

Athol Bloomer has discovered some amazing facts in the field of Geneaology. Athol explains how the first Norman king of England traces his ancestry back to the first bard of Israel and the greatest monarch in history! William the Conqueror in the male line was a direct descendant of King David! Charlemagne was a descendant through his mother. The Four Sons of Machir; Rollo of Norway Ancestor of William the Conqueror.

The institution of the Babylonian Exilachate came when King Nebuchadnezzar took Jehoiachin, King of Judah captive to Babylon in c.597 B.C. After being imprisoned for 37 years Evilmerodach King of Babylon released Jehoiachin and "he spoke kindly to him and gave him a seat of honor higher than those of the other kings who were with him in Babylon" (Kings 25:28). Archeology has discovered the royal accounts recording the food allowance granted to Jehoiachin and his five sons in prison in Babylon. From Jehoiachin arose a royal Davidic dynasty in Babylon reigning from their own palace and court over the Jewish communities of the East. They reigned in regal splendor until the beginning of the fifteenth century when Tamerlane deposed them in 1401 and a branch of the family transferred to Baghdad to lead the Jewish community until 1700. Gershom and Machir went to Narbonne and founded the Western Dynasty of Exilarchs there. Pepin (king of France) installed Machir son of the Babylonian Exilarch as the Jewish King of Narbonne. Machir (Theuderic) married a sister of Pepin called Alda. His son Guillame d'Orange, is also famous in the French Chansons was nicknamed 'Hook Nosed'. He was fluent in Arabic and Hebrew. The Heraldic device on his shield was the same as that of the Eastern Exilarchs -the Lion of Judah. Guillame observed the Sabbath and Sukkot during his campaigns. Machir's sister known as Bertha Bigfoot married Pepin, and became the mother of Charlemagne.

The Plantagenet Kings of England in the male line were descended from Gershom the brother of Machir. Rollo the ancestor of William the Conqueror was in the direct male line descended from Machir Theodoric of Narbonne! One Line of descent from Machir ben Judah (also called Theodoric of Narbonne) is to John 1st Duke of Atholl an ancestor of Princess Diana.
