The Iberian destiny
Beginning with the Vth century, many Spanish writings support the idea that the fourth colonization of Spain by the Goths, considered to be in fact the ancient Getae („Getae illi qui et nunc Gothi”), has led to the foundation of the Spanish nation and of the Iberian state. Throughout the following centuries, this legend gathered momentum, becoming an actual historical, cultural and moral reference for the Spanish society. The Swedish also boast in their stories that the laws upon which their state and culture rely, are the laws of Zamolxis! Like any rational individual residing in a mioritic space, I wondered: are these nations off the track or is it that our realms reeks of infamy? In order to understand why the Spaniards spread such stories, we need to search carefully our ancient history, forged with so much resentment by the would-be mentors of our people! To the same effect, a great part of the answer to this question can be found on the lead plates concealed by the embittered employees at the Institute of Archaeology in Bucharest.
The Romanian historians who knew a thing or two about Getica of Jordanes cut it short, saying that the author of Gothic origin made a confusion between the Getae who destroyed the Roman Empire and the Goths who came to our lands during the second and third century AD. Their “farsighted” sayings remained deep-rooted and iron-bound for centuries to come. Still, these far-fetched ideas aren’t even stated anymore in the history books, to keep people from wondering if the reasoning is correct or it is plain raving.
On the tombs of the Visigoth kings in Old Castile, stands written for posterity: ,,Rex Godorum et Dacorum et Gaetorum et Hispaniae Rex”, meaning for our understanding „king of the Goths, of the Dacians, of the Getae and king of Spain”! Did these kings not even know who their subjects were, or should the wretched fellows from the mioritic lands should receive a “decoration of talent” for high treason against their nation and country? I will give one more example to show who they really are and how much evil they did to the Romanian people! In a document from 615 called Libbelus dotalis Morgingeba (Morgingeba’s Wealth Register), the Visigoth chieftain writes that their state was based upon “,...ordinis ut Getici est et Morgingeba uetusti” (“practices as of Getae and also used by Morgingeba”) meaning he writes and also leaves a testimony about leges bellagines. In the same document the author mentions the Visigoths received nobiliary titles, “...Insigni merito et Geticae de stirpe Senatus” (Honoured with military merits and Getae senatorial rights, following the example of Constantine the Great, who ennobled many barbarian knights that had proven worthy in the use of weapons).
The ancient gold and lead plates state that the Bastarni of Germanic origin were on the Getae territory around the middle of the IVth century BC; here, they were subjected to a strong process of “getization”. Beginning with the first century BC, our ancestors made contact to the east with the Goths arrived from Scandinavia. Both the Scandinavian mythology and the Germanic mythology show that those who went back to their homelands took with them many elements from the Getae religion and culture and the Bastarni were regarded by the other Germans as kin descended from the Getae.
Martial (ca.40 – ca. 103), in Pharsala, uses in the same verse the terms Dacian, Getae and Iberian – Hinc Dacus premat inde Getes ocurrat Hiberis. The verse was interpreted by Isidore in the VIIth century as a profecy; not only Spain was to be invaded by Getae, but the whole world. History becomes legend. The Spanish writer Paulus Orosius, who had taken refuge in Africa for fear of Goths and Getae, in the Histories he finished in 417, gives us information on the Goth migration to Spain and emphasizes: ,,Getae illi qui et nunc Gothi (the Getae who are now called Goths) and ,,Dacia ubi et Gothia – Dacia, also known as Gothia. He also makes a description of the tribes that amass crossing the Europe, pointing out that to the east there was Alania, in the middle there was Dacia, also known as Gothia and then there was Germania, mainly controlled by Sueves – their people comprises 54 tribes. The territory north of the Danube is called by him Barbaricum, while the territory south of the Danube is called Romania and includes Pannonia, Moesia, Dalmatia, Istria, Macedonia and Thrace. He recalls the battles waged by Domitian against the Getae and also brings into notice the ruler Diurpaneus, who will be mentioned in all the Spanish chronicles.
From the ancient Dacia (now “Gothia”) set sail the great invasions which destroyed the ancient world and led to the decline of the Roman Empire, as foreseen by Seneca (4 BC - 65 AD) and Lucan, both from Spain, in a prediction as yet unknown in the Romanian culture! The Hispanic philosopher says as in a “prophecy” that the wrath of the “fateful day” will come from the lands of the Getae, when the Danube unleashed will rise to the sky and in a single devastating vortex will swallow a great expanse of lands and strongholds. There will be endless rain pouring from the sky, the rivers will flood and the seas will get out of their beds, washing over the earth to destroy humankind. “How do you think the Rhone, the Rhine and the Danube will be, their course being tempestuous even in the riverbed, when they will carve new banks and get out of their channels, making the earth fall? ... When the Danube won’t reach just the mountain feet or the mountain belt, but it will sweep the tops, carrying with it the flooded slopes, the cliffs and the forelands of the wide territories which uprooted will separate from the continent? And then, finding no way out – because it had blocked itself all of the exits – it goes back in a whirlpool and swallows with a single terrifying vortex a tremendous expanse of lands and strongholds?” The picture continues with storms and thunders until the insurgent seas rise to the sky and swoop crushing upon the devastated lands. The unfortunate survivors of the human race cling for dear life on the last peaks – lost in the ocean – incapable even of pain.
We must keep in mind that Seneca wrote these lines in ca. 60 AD and his descriptions are very similar to the biblical flood, except that at the time, the Hebrew writings represented nothing to the Roman culture. It makes one wonder if this was just a premonition the philosopher had or did he know myths and legends that we know nothing about? He also speaks about the terrible Getae arrow flying to the sky – talis in coelum exilit arundo Getica visa dimitti manu – which sows death wherever it falls.
His nephew, Lucan, mentions the fame of the Getae bow, made of Armenian hardwood : “Armeniosque arcus Geticis intendite neruis”. He also writes about “the Massagetae living on the Scythian banks of the Ister, Dacians and Getae who lay in wait for the fall of the Roman Empire: “Shall unknown nations, touched by western strife, and monarchs born beneath another clime brave the dividing seas to join the war? Shall Scythian tribes desert their distant north and Getae haste to view the fall of Rome and I look idly on? ... Oh, gods, let us rather be foes of all the peoples. May the Getae press here, and the Dacian there; Pompeius meet the Eastern archers, Caesar in the West confront the Iberian.” But the Getae world was a mysterious and frightening world, and the Ister represented a nearly impenetrable frontier both for the Greeks and the Romans. The piercing cold, the dark and endless forests, the devoutness and the bravery of the Getae people made their territory seem more like a realm of legend than a world that the ancient Mediterraneans could understand. As they saw it, this land not only inspired fear, but it also had something magical, which sprang from the spirited mind of the people and came in its defense.
The fabulous history which fills the medieval Spanish chronicles is partly build up from Mediterranean myths and legends about the Orient, but mostly from legends about the mysterious lands between Caucasus and the Danube’s mouths, surrounded by impenetrable Arctic fogs and Thracian mysteries which dissipate in the night of time. There, in the fog of the Caucasus Mountains, between the Caspian Sea and the Cimmerian Bosphorus, lived a group of people called Iberians, who couldn’t be strangers to the Iberians from beyond the Pillars of Hercules. Aeschylus (525-455), the father of Greek tragedy, says that the Scythian people stood fast in their territory situated “north of Thrace, next to the Caucasus Mountains by the Ister”, that is our mioritic lands! The Greek writer offers this information nearly 900 years before Orosius and has the added advantage of personally knowing these lands. We must assume that the information provided by Aeschylus is correct, since we can find the same statement in other Greek and Roman ancient sources.
The medieval historians couldn’t say for sure if our people had traveled to that territory or if our race originated from the Caucasian Iberians, who had arrived in Spain at some point in time, bringing with them a system of laws they boastfully claimed it was 6000 years old. The mythical world living on those lands had stepped on Spanish territory before. The Amazons, believed by Homer to be of Thracian origin, hadn’t hesitated to cross the sea and win fame on Spanish lands. Those Iberians from long ago represent the mioritic race which migrated in the XVIIth century BC, after the Santorini calamitous eruption. They were also those who took with them the writing discovered at Tartesico and Turdetano, reminding over the years about Tartaria and Turdas, the Romanian sites where the oldest writing in the world was discovered. But, since the writing is not from Canaan or Israel, this history cannot be true, is it not? And all for the simple reason that it isn’t „revealed”.

A Getic Coson (coin) with Şaue (Phoenix – as the greeks named it), holding in a claw the circle of fate or the wheel of life, whereas in the other he has the scepter as a symbol of heavenly power. Both signs put together created a sacred symbol within the premises of the Cancho Roano temple, VIth century BC, being found as letters (O and T) in the alphabets used by Getae on the lead plates discovered in Sinaia. Most of the plates were made disappear by those who had them in keeping, namely the National Institute of Archaeology in Bucharest. The spirit Inanna (black and white photo) of the Emesh, taken up by the Akkadians (the naked goddess) from the XXIVth century BC, as a symbol of eternity and continual renewal of life, holds in both hands the two symbols specific to the Carpathian theosophy. On the upper side we can see Inanna’s symbol represented by a star with eight rays and in the middle there are two concentric circles and a dot. To the right, there is a stele also discovered at Cancho Roano, with two concentric circles on the upper side and a round surface in the middle, containing a sign similar to letter H or I. This sign is repeated on the following stone, which was discovered in the same place. On the margin from the right, there is a clay plate discovered at Suplacul de Barcău, Sălaj County, dated around 5500 BC. This plate has imprinted in the center the same sign found at Cancho Roano.
Pictures on a stone slab (left and center) placed at the entrance to the Cancho Roano temple, abstractly depicting the shape of a man resting on a cane. The image is set under the three concentric circles and it has a thick line in the center. The geometrical arrangement of the symbol is identical to that of the round sanctuary at Sarmizegetusa and very similar to the other halidoms from the pictures showed previously, all of them having belonged to the People Descended from Gods that began its history around the Carpathians and even south from Ister.
Let us pause a moment on the name Tartessos and the site at Cancho Roano, perceived by some European and American “historians” specialized in “Hebraic studies” as symbols connected to Plato’s description of the lost Atlantis (the two pictures on the right) and to the Torah written by the cunning Hebrews, unquestionable proof that the satanic writing was already pent around the XVth century BC and if we look carefully, we are liable to find it even earlier. The first written mention about the city of Tartessos or Tartessus belongs to Herodotus (484-425 BC), who wrote about an important harbor beyond the Pillars of Hercules, located afterwards at the mouths of the Guadalquivir River, south of Spain. Hence, in order to uncover the story of Atlantis, we must set it long before Herodotus’ life, considering that in his writings, he associates the stronghold with the Persian conquest of Phoenicia, saying that the Iberian king helped his Phoenician neighbours with silver for the construction of a defensive wall in their realm (the stronghold from Iberia existed around the middle of the VIth century BC). Herodotus writes about king Arganthonios from Tartessos, famous for the wise governing of the stronghold, trading with both the Phoenicians (settled in the region in the VIIIth century BC) and the Greeks. According to the historian’s writings, king Arganthonios ruled in Tartessia for 80 years (625 BC - 545 BC) and lived to the age of 120. Perhaps that in actual fact, there were several kings with the same name during that time and the Greek historian made him seem ageless. The talented writer also tells us that king Arganthonios supposedly received very well the Greek traders, insisting that they settle in his kingdom, but the traders refused his offer, eager to return promptly to their Ellada. The king’s name leads us to think of silver – a metal widespread in his kingdom – with references at the Celtiberians, where we encounter the term Arkanta, or airget at the ancient Irish, argant at the ancient Welsh, argentum in Latin, argintar in Romanian and agathirsos people of the Getae living on the banks of the Mureş river. During the Roman age, the name Argantoni appears on some inscriptions found on the old territory of the kingdom Tartessos.
The Greek historian Ephoros (400-330 BC) describes in his Universal history “a very prosperous market for tin, gold and copper in the Celtic territory called Tartessos, but its name was given by a river crossing the region and it didn’t represent anymore the name of a stronghold.”
Aristotle (384-322 BC) alludes to Tartessos as a river, claiming that it sprang from Mount Piren, known today as the Pyrenees, and it emptied into the sea next to the Pillars of Hercules, or the Gibraltar Narrows that we know today; the stronghold isn’t mentioned anymore, proving that it had disappeared in the wake of a terrible cataclysm occurred in the interval between Herodotus’ death and the moment when Aristotle made these notes.
According to Pytheas, who travelled to the British Islands around 325 BC (information then taken up by Strabo at the beginning of the first century AD), the Turduli occupied the territory known before under the name of Tartessos.
Pausanias wrote in the IInd century a Description of Greece, mentioning a river with this name: “They say that Tartessus is a river in the land of the Iberians, running down into the sea by two mouths, and that between these two mouths lies a city of the same name. The river, which is the largest in Iberia, is known today as Baetis, and there are some who think that Tartessus was the ancient name of Carpia, a city of the Iberians.” The river mentioned by Pausanias is called at present Guadalquivir and the delta formed at its mouth was gradually blocked by a sandbank.
During the second century AD, Appian believed that Karpessos or Carpia was anciently known as the land and stronghold of Tartessos.
Flavius Philostratus (172-250 e.n.), in his Life of Apollonius of Tyana, book V, 1, writes about the southernmost part of Iberia: “the promontory of Europe, known as Carpis, stretches along the inlet of the ocean and tight hand side distance of six hundred stadia, and terminates in the ancient city of Gadeira”. The cited texts stand proof that the place where the ancient city of Tartessos used to be was forgotten, buried under the marshy lands which replaced the old estuary behind the sandbanks, at the mouth of the Guadalquivir River, where the river delta was gradually blocked by sand and alluviums. This region is nowadays a protected area, known under the name of Doñana National Park.
At approximately 250 km north of Tartessos lies the Cancho Roano archaeological site, believed to have functioned as a palace for a local chieftain or as a fortified halidom. This centre lasted from the VIth century BC until around 370 BC and shows obvious signs of religious activity, with specific altars that were studied by archaeologists. The building is squarely shaped and faces east, being surrounded by a retrenchment and strong defensive walls.
Let me also tell you Plato’s story from Timaeus to prove to the rascally fellows how they turned lie and theft into the most lofty virtues of the people chosen by Satan to eternally plague the Christians. “But at a later time there occurred portentous earthquakes and floods, and one grievous day and night befell them, when the whole body of your warriors was swallowed up by the earth along with the stronghold, and the island of Atlantis in like manner was swallowed up by the sea and vanished; wherefore also the ocean at that spot has now become impassable and unsearchable, being blocked up by the shoal mud created by the island as it settled down.” According to Plato, Atlantis was a naval power laying “in front of the Pillars of Hercules” that sank into the ocean “in a single day and night of misfortune” around 9000 BC. The stronghold of Tartessos undoubtedly existed in the centuries XI – VI BC, being situated in the south of Spain, where it became an important center for the trade of gold and silver extracted from the local mines. Tartessos was ruled by kings, it had its own culture and language and according to some legendary sources, it was 6000 years old. The area was identified by the imaginative Hebraists as the ancient Atlantis where many Hebrews lived, including Iona the hermit, who was swallowed by the giant fish. Plato wrote that the stronghold of Atlantis was situated on an island which had five stadia in diameter (925 m), being surrounded by concentric rings of wall/earth and water (These rings of water and walls were precisely what made the cunning Hebraists associate Atlantis with their religion). The docks where the ships anchored had a roof painted in red, white and black, colours used by Kabylians/Berbers when painting the interiors of their homes.
To the great displeasure of those who believe the Hebrew fabrications, I will give a few arguments that will deter them from including the legend of Atlantis in their Torah. If we start just from what Plato wrote, the stronghold and the island collapsed approximately nine thousand years before the Hebrews began to have “visions” and “revelations”, that is in the second century BC. Linguistically and semantically speaking, their inventions have nothing in common with the Atlantean history, mythology, culture and religion, so they had better quench their excessive imagination, to keep from becoming ridiculous.
There are numerous proofs that the people who lived at the mouths of the Guadalquivir River were directly linked to our Carpathians and the tribes who lived here before the second millennium BC.
1. The symbol of eternal life and heavenly ruling is only encountered in the Emesh culture, the Arimin culture and at the inhabitants of Tartessos; it is never mentioned in Torah or Talmud.
2. The H sign found on the clay plate we discovered in the archaeological deposit at Suplacul de Barcău is repeated twice on stones discovered at the Cancho Roano halidom pertaining to the Tartessos culture.
3. The three concentric circles are arranged exactly like the round sanctuary at Sarmizegetusa, the ancient Ural fortress Arkaim and the structure at Goseck. On the same lines, they are arranged similarly to the Stonehenge and Gobekli Tepe sanctuaries. The Hebrew sanctuaries never had such a geometrical arrangement, which imitates the citadel of light from the skies or the initial shape of the Earth.
4. The Cancho Roano construction is squarely shaped and faces east, towards Arima, Ariminia, or the Holy Getia, the country where they came from. The temple served a cult sacred to the solar bull, same as on our lands, according to the Arimin religion.
5. The myths and legends passed over by Plato say that the inhabitants of these lands came from the Ister Caucasus, thus referring explicitly to the homeland of the people who built the Tartessos stronghold.
6. Only the alphabet used by Getae on the lead plates discovered at Sinaia is identical to the alphabet used by the inhabitants of Tartessos, as indicated in the table below. The alphabet used by Hebrews doesn’t have such symbols, which fully proves the Hebrew lie.
Table with different writings: first 3 columns show Iberian types (south-west; south-east; north-east); the 4th column presents some signs from the Getic alphabet; in the 5th column are depicted the signs made by the Rumunian traditional rafters on Bistriţa river.
A legend with similar subject comes to my mind, about Danaos, the mythical king of Libya. Angry with his brother Egiptos, he embarked his people on ships and travelled to Peloponnesus, where he settled his entire kin, whom the natives knew under the name of Pelasgians. But then the Pelasgians came from north of Ister and they were the ancestors of the Getae. Sure enough, not all the Danaoi or ,,Danaans” went north; some of them dispersed to the west because at the time there was place for everybody on Earth.
In the Irish mythology, Danu or Dana in modern Irish was the mother goddess of the Tuatha de Danaan, meaning those of Irish origin or “the people of the goddess Danu”, another people descended from gods like the Getae. The Egyptians say that amongst the “sea people” who invaded them in search of loot, were also the “Daniuna”, while Virgil writes in chapter II,49 of Aeneid about the people of “Danaos” or “Danaans”, the ancient inhabitants of Peloponnesus, who caused great sorrow to the stronghold of Troy, but we don’t know if this happened before or after the visit to Egypt. During the Late Bronze Age and the Iron Age, Tartessos had strong trading connections with the British Islands and the Ancient Ireland, because these territories had the necessary metals to produce bronze and iron objects. The region that was flooded and covered by mud and sand where the ancient Tartessos used to be, is nowadays a special reservation called Doñana National Park, a lexical reminiscence of the ancient natives Danaan, since the two highlighted words belong to the same lexical family.
The area where the Cancho Roano archaeological site was discovered was known in Antiquity as Carpia¸ same as the land east of the Carpathians inhabited by the Carpi people that were spread as far as the Arabian Peninsula, where the Semites called them Carbi; the ancient Macedonia had a village named Carpi and we encounter the term Carp as a Romanian surname.
A comparative study between the Emegi language, the old Romanian language and the Hispanic languages would reveal treasures that would cause great chagrin to the Latinists and the defenders of the Indo-Germanic theory. Hebrews have no place on this pure land which doesn’t allow revelations and diabolical visions. After this research through the Antiquity blackened by the fog of oblivion, but mostly by the people’s incommensurate hate, allow me to get back to the Spanish medieval writers who left us noteworthy data and facts regarding our true history and culture.
Isidore, the Bishop of Seville, wrote at the beginning of the VIIth century Historia de Regibus Gothorum, Vandalorum et Suevorum, as an homage to the Germanic people for their influence in the foundation of the Spanish nation and culture. Isidore was an ardent admirer of the Goths, himself descended from this people, and his notes are based on ancient sources, other than the Getica of Jordanes, which he didn’t know. The author wants to make an apology of the Goths descended from Getae starting from Orosius’ saying and continuing with an etymological and genealogical approach that allows him to attribute symbolic meaning to his theories on names and words. The Etymologies show us what the prelate and scholar from Seville believed about the faraway country of the Getae, mysteriously connected to the Spanish destiny. It is an ambiguous geography, with information collected from several ancient writers. The wide world was crossed by hordes of barbarian riders who passed in a storm over the ruins of the ancient settlements. Freed from the Roman legions, Dacia was occupied in turn by Goths, Gepids, Huns and Avars; at the moment when Isidore wrote his book, the Carpathian lands were controlled by Slavs. Isidore also tells us in Histories that Dacia had high mountains nearby the Scythian kingdoms wherefrom the Goths crossed the Danube to invade the Roman provinces. They shared these high mountains with other people.
The Bishop gives us information on the history of the Goths living along the Danube and their migration to the west until they reached Spain. The book ends with a summary: “Living in the frozen lands of the Septentrion, next to the Scythian kingdom with high mountains, they ruled over these mountains along with other people, whence cast off by the Hun invasion, they crossed the Danube and submitted to the Romans. But then unable to bear the Roman iniquities, they choose a king from their people, raid into Thrace, devastate Italy, head for Gaul and after effortlessly crossing the Pyrenees, they reach Spain, where they set up their empire. ”
The writer eulogizes the Goth people and its features, using the term “Getae” in his descriptions. He says that they had blond hair and kept their heads uncovered – flavent capitibus invectis Getae, they were accomplished horsemen, as a poet says – Getes, inquit, quo pergit equo and scornful about death, as another poet says. Isidore of Seville praises the virtuous people who made “Rome itself, the subduer of all the tribes” to obediently serve them and receive the “triumph of the Getic yoke”. The happiness of the country is given by the joy (of life) which determines the flourishing of the glorious fertility of the Getic people – Geticae gentis gloriosa fecunditas. In the Histories and Etymologies of the Spanish prelate we find notes about the Dacians and Getae that, even distorted, echo a historical truth sometimes also mirrored in ancient sources. However, we also assist to a historical exclusion of the Getae people, since the prelate claims that the Goths who had assumed the Getae culture entered Spain. But then 20 years earlier, that is at the end of 403 AD, the Latin Claudius Claudianus, in his Book I against Rufinus wrote that the attackers of the Western Roman Empire in 402 and 403 were Getae, Sarmatians, Dacians and Massagetae; he also praises the vandal general Stilicon (“When your right hand crushed the Dacian troops”). 150 years later, Jordanes says that only Goths entered Spain, although the kings who ruled over that land at the time considered themselves rulers of the Goths, of the Dacians, of the Getae and kings of Spain. This assertion proves that the process of forging the history of the Getae and of the Roman Empire was accomplished for the most part and the inhabitants of the Carpathians were artfully excluded from history.
Saint Eugenius reminds of an argument between Paulo Alvaro and Eleazar, in which the first one speaks about the turmoil of the Black Sea and eulogizes in verses Leovigild’s (568-586) library because it shined with “Getic light”. Unfortunately, these information weren’t meant for our knowledge, since there are many those who wish to keep them hidden.
Towards the end of the XIIIth century, the Getae myth, through the legendary image of Deceneus, takes a new shape under the penning of the king and scholar Alfonso el Sabio (1252-1284) in his General Chronicle. This king is considered the father of the Spanish culture, due to his interests in a variety of sciences and arts, from poetry and music to astronomy and astrology. Under his talented quill pen, the Getae Diçeneo or Dicineo becomes a philosopher and almost a saint; not only is he the wise counselor of the impetuous Boruista (boero Bisto), but he is also king Alfonso’s model, whom he helps to mould the Spanish culture from the roots, calling him: el Sabio – the Wise. Did the respect for the Catholic Church make this king set Deceneus in a discrete pre-Christian shadow or did he possess information that we know nothing about?
The Getic myth ascribed to the Goths which takes on a moral meaning, leaving traces at all the Spanish writers and historians, is the myth of Deceneus or the Wise of the Goths, which the Toledan Jimenez de Rada (1170-1247) turned into the The myth of wisdom and fair ruling for the new founders of Spain. Zamolxis also appears in this myth as a king of the Goths and “a wonder of wisdom and philosophy”. The Spanish author says that he gathered his information from the ancient writers, from Jordanes and from the Goth oral traditions and songs. In his opinion, these songs which preserved the memory of Deceneus must have been themselves inherited from the Geto-Dacians.
Alonso de Cartagena (1384-1456), who lived in the days of Henry IV, wrote that the kings of Spain descended from Dacian princes, taking only their names from the place where they lived, because they were more illustrious than those of their ancestors; he also says that the name Geta can be found in the medieval writings as a nobiliary title. In our language, the same word is meant as an insult and an expletive! The Getae symbols appear in the blazonry of the Spanish kings – the arrows which terrified the world and the yoke as a proof that they were rich in cattle.
If Orosius said that the Getae were the Goths who conquered Spain, two centuries later Isidore asserted the identity of the Getae with the Goths and over the ensuing centuries, the scholars, as well as the ruling class had to demonstrate their Getic lineage in order to prove that they were of noble blood. From Isidore of Seville, the legend evolved, taking roots in all the chronicles; thus, a fragment of the Getae history surprisingly entered the history of Spain itself. The Getae names Boruista/Buruista, Diurpaneus, Decebalus, Zamolxis and Deceneus can be found in Saint Isidore’s works, in the writings of the archbishop Rodrigo Jimenez de Rada and at King Alfonso el Sabio, occupying their rightful place in the genealogy of the Spanish people.
So anyone can draw the logical conclusion that the Getae transmitted to the Spanish their own culture, not the culture of the Germanic people (with Odin, the supreme god; Thor, the god of thunder and war; Loki, the nefarious god of death and of the underworld fire; Baldr, the god of justice and nature)!
The piece of Carpathian history and culture taken to Spain by the migration of the Getic people and Getized Goth people, turns into legend, adding to the other facts which make up the lost history of the Arimin people.
No Spanish historian acknowledged among these names our rightful ancestors! We discover them today thanks to the book Zamolxis written by Alexandru Busuioceanu during his years in Spain and printed in Romanian in 1985. It’s a wonder that the ancient lead plates hidden at the Institute of Archaeology in Bucharest help us get to know our ancestors in this novel way, just like it was confirmed by the venerable chronicles written by archbishops and kings of Spain, as yet unread by Romanians. If our “traditionalistic” historians studied these chronicles, they would instantly jump to the insane conclusion that they are fakes – just like they have done “on demand” with the ancient lead plates kept at the said institute and with those discovered at Tărtaria (IVth millennium B.C.) – and that’s all there is to it!
