Is Britain’s Queen descended from Judean princess?
Sidmouth writer links King David’s throne to Queen Elizabeth II
AFTER two years of difficult research, Sidmouth writer and photographic illustrator Glyn Lewis’s latest book tells the story of how our Queen is descended from the Biblical King David through a Judean princess.
Daughters of Destiny, published last week by The Covenant Publishing Company at �9.50, is no work of fiction. It sets out evidence through genealogical DNA links, archaeology and recorded historical facts.
Glyn, 62, from took up the challenge to undertake the research after two Sidmouth residents, who had read his book Did Jesus Come to Britain?, said he should investigate the story of a prophet coming to Britain, bringing an Egyptian princess with him.
His research shows the prophet Jeremiah, tasked with preserving the royal line of King David, rescued the royal princesses from the clutches of Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar, leading them to safety to re-establish the royal line in Ireland.
“It was a labour of love, if I cannot write with historical accuracy then I will not write it,” said Glyn, who found the hardest part of his research reading through the Irish annals, chronicles and bardic accounts.
The succession led to the kings of Argyll, the Scottish succession and so to the English succession and throne today.

“It got harder, but I got there, it was a detection trail with real people,” said Glyn, whose wife Jenny supported him in his studies. “It is not a religious book and it will be of interest to people interested in the monarchy.”
Having identified who Adam was and where he lived, special regard is paid to the promise made to King David that he would never lack someone to sit on his throne until the return of Christ to Earth.
Glyn uses historical, archaeological and DNA evidence to link the Judean descent that leads to Queen Elizabeth II and ends with the suggestion that the throne of David, is now drawing to a close, showing signs of His forthcoming return.
Whether you believe in the Bible or not, this book is fascinating, if a little difficult to absorb because of all the many ancient names used, but Glyn has obviously done some painstaking research, which may lead us to understand more of our ancient lineage.
