My first female ancestor that I’m able to post, yay! Not very many women are mentioned so far back in our family line. My last post was on Phoeniusa Farsaidh, King of Scythia. Feninsa is his mother, the wife of Bathath farssaidh. I’m excited about this post! Through Feninsa I can claim all 5 feet, 2 inches, and 150 pounds of me to be an Amazon Worrier (laughing- out loud).
Feninsa had two sons, besides her first child Phoeniusa Farsaidh, there was Esru. Esru was the second son. All we know about him is he had a son named Sru.
I’m excited to write about this ancestor. My cousin A.A. Kelly and I could give her a warrior type of personality and create a book that legends are made of, keeping it as real as possible though. Instead of a God like figure, like Wonder Woman, I think Feninsa would be described best as a strong woman with warrior like qualities. A woman history finds worth mentioning.
“Today I am posting the 8th ancestor and 1st female since I started way back in history. She was the wife of Bathath Farssaidh, King of Scythia and mother of Phoeniusa Farsaidh, King of Scythia and Esru. Her estimated birth date is between 2564 BCE and 2504 BCE.”
From Wikipedia: “In Greek mythology, the Amazons were a race of women warriors. Scythian women may have inspired the myth. Herodotus reported that they were related to the Scythians (an Iranian people) and placed them in a region bordering Scythia in Sarmatia (modern territory of Ukraine). Other historiographers place them in Anatolia, or sometimes Libya.”
“Esru is the 2nd son of Bathath Farssaidh, King of Scythia and brother to Phoeniusa Farsaidh, King of Scythia. Well, it sucks to the be the 2nd son. All we know about this guy is that his estimated birth date is between 2495 BCE and 2469 BCE, he had a son named Sru (lara) and that he was related to the 2 Kings above.”
From the Encyclopedia Britannica: “Until the 20th century, most of what was known of the history of the Scythians came from the account of them by the ancient Greek historian Herodotus, who visited their territory. In modern times that record has been expanded chiefly by Russian and other anthropologists excavating kurgans in such places as Tyva and Kazakhstan.”
