Jewish Bulgarian House of Miroslava (Mirel)

Wedding of Princess Miroslava to Ashot Taronites 

The mt-dna H7d House of Miroslava (Mirel) has it origins in the Royal family of Bulgaria in the 10th century. H7d mt-dna came to Bulgaria with the Bulgarian Empress Kosara, the wife of Czar Samuil. Kosara was the daughter of John Chryselios the Byzantine Ruler of Durres (Dyrrhachium) in Albania and his Jewish wife Mirela of Durres. Mirela's mother Kozara (b.913) was a daughter of King Benjamin of the Jewish Khazars and his wife Queen Ashina (b.895). 

The Empress Kosara of Bulgaria was the mother of Princess Theodora Kosara and Princess Miroslava. Her two daughters were passionate romantics who insisted on marrying the men they fell in love with. Miroslava fell in love with a handsome Armenian captive Ashot Taronites and threatened to commit suicide if her father didn't give his permission. So he made Ashot the Governor of Dyrrachium and allowed them to marry. Her sister also fell in love with a Serbian captive Jovan Vladimir and her father allowed her to marry him. The story of their romance is one of the greatest in Serbian literature.

Princess Miroslava fled from Dyrrachium to Constantinople with her husband Ashot Taronides and their children when Ivan Vladislav murdered her brother Czar Gavril Radomir and seized the throne with Byzantine support. In Constantinople the Emperor made them Patricians of the Roman Empire. Their daughter Lady Theodora Taronides married her exiled cousin Peter Deylan who regained the throne of his father Czar Gavril Radomir by overthrowing Byzantine rule. In 1041 he was said in one account to have been killed by the Viking Prince Harald Hardrada who at the time was head of the Varangian Guard.
King Harald Hardrada of Norway

Lady Theodora's daughter Princess Miroslava was taken captive to Constantinople after the death of Theodora's husband. Harald Hardrada (b.1015 d.1066) claimed Miroslava as part of his booty but the Empress Zoe refused him. So he seized Miroslava and a ship and escaped back to Norway via a stay in Russian Kiev. Miroslava managed to escape from Norway with her daughter Oslava (by King Harald) with the help of a Jewish Radanite merchant and his son Yacov Roditi. They settled with him back in Bulgaria at Tarnovo in the Jewish community using the name Mirela and Aseneta (Osnat/ Oslava) Roditi. Oslo was named after his daughter Oslava by King Harald in sadness for the escape of his mistress and daughter. The legends often confuse the identities of mother and daughter.

Judith Maria Roditi a descendant of the Bulgarian Roditi family

Aseneta (b.1045 Norway) married firstly Altun Apa Khan of the Cumans (Polovsty) and they were the parents of Osen, Khan of the Cumani. Aseneta married secondly Yacov Roditi. Their daughter Mirela Roditi(b.1070) married Isaac (Ivan) Belgun (later the surname became Belleli). Ivan Belgun is also known as Ivan the Khazar and was a Prince or Noble of the Jewish Khazars [son of Zechariah of the Khazars] descended from the Jewish Khazar King David of Teman (reigned 986-998). Their son Asen Belgun was the grandfather of the three Asen brothers Theodore, Asen and Kaloyan of the Asen Dynasty of Bulgaria. Mirela's daughter Deborah Belgun (b.1100) was the mother of Mirela of Tarnovo who married her cousin Isaac (Ivan) Belgun the son of Asen Belgun. They were the parents of the three Asen Czars. Their sister Miroslava married Suthoi the Khan of the Cumans. Czar Kaloyan married Kunia the younger sister of Suthoi.  The Jewish origins of the Bulgarian royal house has been obscured and hidden due to the anti-Jewish sentiments of the period.

Suthoi and Miroslava were the parents of Koten the Khan of the Cumans, Boril the Czar of Bulgaria, Princess Mira Cumani and Princess Kunia of the Cumans. Koten married his cousin Galicia of Halych (the daughter of Mstislav of Halych and Princess Kunia). Their daughter Elizabeth Cumani married Stephen V King of Hungary. From Elizabeth would come many famous Catholic Queens and Princesses. Another daughter of Mstislav and Kunia was Lady Kunia of Halych who married Narjod III de Toucy.

Mira Cumani remained in the Jewish community and married the wealthy merchant Yacov Roditi. Her daughter Aseneta Roditi (b.1200) was the mother of Mirela Belleli. Mirela married her Roditi cousin and they were the parents of Devorah Roditi. Devorah's daughter was Bela Canetti. Bela was the mother of Miriam Tarnova (1310-1380) the Jewish mother of the Empress Sara-Theodora (b.1327 d.1387) [the wife of Czar Ivan Alexander Asen].

Jewish-born Empress Sara-Theodora of Bulgaria of mt-dna H7d

Empress Sara-Theodora the second Jewish-born wife of Czar Ivan Alexander of Bulgaria was the mother of Princess Desislava who married Constantine a Wallachian Prince . Their daughter Lady Miroslava of Wallachia (b.1380) secretly observed the Jewish customs like her mother Princess Desislava (she had been influenced by her Jewish grandmother Miriam Tarnova). Lady Miroslava was the wife of Constantine II Asen of Bulgaria. Their daughter Princess Dobroslava (Dvorel) under Ottoman Rule returned to open Judaism and married a Bulgarian Rabbi Kalonymus Kalo (a descendant of the Davidic family). 

Princess Dobroslava was the mother of Miriam Sarah Kalo (b.c.1420) the grandmother of Miroslava (Mirel) Semo (b.about 1480) a daughter of Rabbi Yacov Semo. Miroslava's daughter Dobroslava or Deberel was a granddaughter of Rabbi Abraham Semo of Bulgaria through her father Rabbi Iliya Semo.  Another daughter of Rabbi Iliya and Miroslava was Perel (Berel) Semo (b.1482) who married Rabbi Moshe Breznicky of Prague. Their daughter was Dobra Breznicky (b.1502) whose daughter Perel Shmelkes was the wife of Rabbi Judah Loewe the Maharal.

Deberel was the mother of Mirel Belleli (b.1530) who married Joseph Politi of Bulgaria. They moved from Bulgaria to Prague. Their daughter Deverel Politi of Prague married Meshullam Zalman Teomim of Prague and they moved to Vienna.  Their daughter Mirel Sara Teomim (1575-1639) married Jacob Koppel Fraenkel Heller Wallerstein of Vienna. Mirel's granddaughter Hindel Neumark married Gershon Brandeis of Prague and were the parents of Bluma Brandeis who married her uncle Rabbi Betzalel Bumsla of Prague. Bluma's daughter was Mirel or Merle Bumsla who married Rabbi Mordechai ha Cohen of Hamburg. Their daughter Merle ha Cohen married Rabbi Isaac Spira who died in Prague in 1749.

Rabbi Spira's daughter Elkele married the famous Rabbi Jonathan Eybescheutz . Rabbi Jonathan's granddaughter was Mijntje or Feiltje (Filette) Bomseler (Bumsla) of Amsterdam. She married Levie Salomon Horsitz. They lived in Offenbach before coming to Amsterdam in 1772. Their daughter Rabecka Levie Horsitz married Samuel Koopman Henau (b.1763 Amsterdam) a Amsterdam Mohel (Circumciser). Rabecka's daughter Anna (Chana) Koopman married Jacob Courlander. Their daughter was Merle Courlander.

Merle Courlander aka Maria Courville belonged to a Dutch Jewish family that came as merchants to Ireland. The Courlander family took their name from the Latvian Duchy of Courland and they had been Jewish Latvian settlers in Tobago in the 17th century who after 1690 moved to Surinam and then to Amsterdam. Merle's parents Jacob Courlander and Chana (Annatje) Koopman moved to Waterford and took the names of James and Anna Courville around 1800. They moved back and forth between Amsterdam and Ireland. Merle met a handsome Irish Frankist Jew in Waterford called John Curran (Jewish name Yehuda ha Cohen, Polish name Jan Cyranowski) whose family had arrived in Ireland after 1760 with a large group of Frankist settlers from Poland and Germany. Merle had two brothers Yehuda and Yekutiel who took the names John and James in Ireland who became British soldiers. Another brother David Courlander headed the family's merchant business in Amsterdam. Merle became a Catholic on her marriage to John Curran whose family had been Catholic for 3 generations.

Notes on dates and names: The dates of birth given before the 16th century  are estimates. The surname of Roditi has its origin in Yacov the Radanite which in Hebrew became Yaacov haRoditi. The Radanites (Rhodanites) were Jewish merchants that traded throughout the world. The main ydna signature of the Radanites was R1b-U152. Belleli developed from Belgun which is Bilgun in Turkish meaning 'wise'. Kalo, Kalman and Kaloyan derive from the name Kalonymus of the Davidic family in Lucca, Germany and Narbonne. Canetta may derive from Kenite or Kuni or Kumani. The Cumans were blonde haired, blue-eyed warrior horseman who originally came from Siberia. They are mainly of R1a-Z93 ydna descended from the Manessehite King Hosea (Osee) and his Manessehite mounted warriors who settled in Western China and later moved north into Siberia and founded the Xionhu Empire. In their move west from Siberia they united with the Kipchaks who were mainly of G ydna.

The name Mirel or Mirela like Maria, Marie and Mary is a variant of Miriam. Mirel means bitter and Miriam means bitter sea. In Turkish the name Meral means a female deer or Hart and is one of the female houses of the Empresses and Queens of Khazaria. Asen was the name of a Royal House of Bulgaria (also known as Belgun) from the name of the first Asen kings grandfather who was named for his grandmother Aseneta. Aseneta is the Bulgarian version of the Jewish name Osnat (Asenath in English). Asenath was the wife of the Patriarch Joseph in the Bible. Oslava was named for King Harald's mother Asta or Osta (a Scandanavian variant of Asenath) as well as her mother Miroslava. King Harald's parents were descendants of Hernaut de Gironde of Narbonne (d.770) who became known as King Harald Hildetonn.

St Andrew and St Matthew in Ophir in Western Australia


St Andrew visited Ophir (Parthia) on the coast of ancient Australia on his third missionary journey after rescuing St Matthew from the Cannibals of Java Minor (Kerguelen Plateau). In fact this socalled third missionary journey was part of his second missionary journey.  Ophir was a city of the Ephraimites (Parthians) at the mouth of the Eridanus (Red) or Cygnus (Barbur/ Swan) River. 

The Parthian Empire was established by an Ophiri or Parthian Prince Arsaces (Ashkan) around 250 BC. St Andrew had traveled through the Parthian Empire and then gone south stopping in Kerala (St Andrews, Kerala) before going to the Land of the Dog-headed people at Andaman (as described by Marco Polo as the home of the Dog -headed people). Andaman was named in honour of St Andrew. From there St Andrew went south to the land of Barbur (Swan) with its capital city called Ophir or Parthia. He then went southwest to Catigara (Kerguelen Plateau/ Java Minor) to the lands of the black cannibals where he rescued St Matthew (or Matthias) before returning to the Ophir at the mouth of the Swan Canyon (now under the Ocean) in Western Australia.

St. Andrew and St. Matthew then went northward back to Andaman (which was later the Andaman Islands) where they separated with Matthew going to India and Andrew north into China and then further north to the Manessehite Kingdom in Siberia founded by the Manassehite Warriors (R1a y-dna) of  King Hosea (Osee). They founded the Zionhu (Xionghu) or Hu Empire. Zion hu means the bearded foreign men of Zion. Xiong / Zion is a pun as it can mean Bear in Chinese. These blonde-haired, blue eyed warriors would be later associated with the name Cuman and enter Europe in the Middle Ages. Andrew also visited Sogdiana and then headed back to the Holy Land via the Silk Roads.

St Andrew's first missionary journey was to Greece and then London (Lydda/ Lud) in Britain, he visited Avalon (Antioch) and then moved into Scotland (Edinburgh/ Edessa) with his wife Johanna (Junia/ Julia). He then returned via the Rivers of Russia to Byzantium and Ankara before heading east to Cappadocia and Galatia. He then went to Georgia and Armenia before going to Jerusalem. St Andrew after his fourth missionary journey returned to Scotland where he was martyred at Perth (Patras or Parthia named for Ophir in Australia), where he had a missionary settlement, by the Pictish king Angus (Oegnus/ Aengus) in 69 AD. Later his relics were transferred from Perth (Patras) to St Andrews by St Riagill (Regulus) a companion of St Columba in the 6th century. This event was confused by the Greeks wanting to claim Patras in Greece as the site of the martyrdom. 


Both St Bartholomew and St Andrew were martyred in Alban (Scotland) by the Picts (Agathysri). Scotland or at least the east Coast was called Alban or Albany part of Scythia (Scotia). Alban or Laban means White and was the name associated with the Tribe of Reuben (Rubani/ Lubani/ Albani) of R1b U152. It would seem that the Tribe of Reuben settled in Australia in the Kingdom of Chabor on the edge of the inland Shallow (Rhadood) Sea in the 5th century BC. From there a group settled in North America in Rhoda, Calalus which came under Roman rule and many of these Rhodans (Rhadans) settled in the British Isles, France and Italy in the 1st century BC. 

To the west of Chabor was the Ophiri (Parthian) or Barbur Kingdom of the Tribe of Ephraim (R1 Y-dna) and to the north of Chabor was the Tribe of Gad (Kadai) of O y-dna and in the North-west the Tribe of Manasseh (Mani/ Mancy). The Irish chroniclers call these Parthians (Perthians) the Partholonians and connect them to the Picts of Scotland. King Angus of the Picts was the maternal grandfather of Tuathal Teachtmar (Parthalai/ Ptolemy/ Teradion) who went to Ireland in the 1st or 2nd century. It would seem that the Picts first landed in the North of Scotland at a place called Orcc (Arcaibh / Arcadia/ Orcades) and spread out from there. At this time the Islands of Orkney may have been part of the Mainland of Scotland.

Shark Kings of Nungan

Jerong or Djeroong is a name associated with the rulers or aboriginal kings of the Nungas (Noongars/ Nyungas) of south-west Western Australia.  A King Jerong was the aboriginal king of the Nungas recognised by the British colonial government in the 1850's. Jerong was from a long line of Nunga Chieftains or Kings originally associated with the totem of the shark. This reflects their origin was their island home in the Indian Ocean called Nungan (called by Marco Polo (Necouran). They left their island home and landed on the South western coast of Western Australia in the 16th century after the sinking of their island home in 1530. 

The original Jerong or Jurong (the Shark King) who led them to Australia may have been a Prince (of K* y-dna) from the sunken land of Malaiur (the homeland of the Malays before 1530) on the Central Kerguelen Plateau (original Java Minore). Jurong the Malay (Mallee/ Maali) Prince of the Nungas was also associated with the Swan (maali in modern Nunga language). The Nungas remembered the swan-like ships and shark-like boats (submarines) that brought them to Australia (Jera/ Jirra/ Java/ Jaya) by this first of their "Kings". 

These Malay Princes claimed descent from Alexander the Great but this was not the Macedonian Alexander but Rajender the Great of the Indian Cholan Empire of the 11th century. Rajender (Iskanda/ Alexander) the Great conquered the island of Malaiur (confused by historians with modern Malaysia) and one of his sons placed on the throne from whom the later Malay Princes descended. Rajender's mother may have been a Gangga Negara Princess who claimed descent from the original Alexander the Great through her ancestor Merong Mahaw-angsa or Merong the Great Swan whose son or grandson Raja Ganjil Sarjuna of Kedar (Naturaliste Plateau) founded the Kingdom of Gangga Negara. 

Merong was a son or grandson of the Ruler of the Roman ruled Kingdom of Rhoda in North America, Silvanus Tolmai the Swan Knight with his Olmec (Merong) wife. He left Roman-ruled Rhoda (Calalus) for China in the 2nd century with a fleet of swan ships. Another son called Merong Mahapudisat succeeded him as the King of Langkasuka (Kedar or Kedah in south-West Australia) and he also became the ruler of the Island of Locac or Soukhattai (Soucat).

Djeroong in modern Noongar language means fat, greasy or handsome but originally meant shark (Jurong still means shark in Malay). In modern Noongar shark is "kwila". After 1530 the bulk of the white population of Western Australia had left for Arabia and the remnants moved away from the coastal regions into the interior. The Nungas were fierce warriors and pushed the white 'aborigines' (the white or part-white remnant that stayed in Australia after 1530) north and inland. However legends seem to say that the whites and blacks lived in peace at first so the whites may have welcomed them after the sinking of their islands. 

The technologically advanced white King (Joseph) that ruled Australia is remembered by some aboriginals as Namarrkon. Others remember him as the male Rainbow Serpent and the Wilman Nunga call him Ngunnunguddy Gnuditj. The Amazon High-Queen (or Chantress of Amon associated with Miriam (Murrun) and the rock-like well of Miriam) who organised their settlement in Australia was remembered by some as Warramurrungundjui as the female Rainbow Serpent by others. The name Warra meant Chantress or Queen and it would be this word that many aborigines would use for speech or language. She entrusted the aborigines with the care of the land (revealed as sacred place or space) after the destructions of 1530 and taught them the mysteries of the Dreaming or Dreamtime (sacred time) which is the Law revealed through song, ritual, art and dance. Both the Australian King and Amazon High-Queen wore serpent-like armour and rainbow capes in imitation of Joseph the Biblical Ruler of Egypt. While the circumcised Paman aborigines revered Warramurrungunjui the uncircumcised Nungas saw her as an evil being and the word "warra" had the meaning of evil or no-good in their language.

The white 'aborigines' maintained control of the area of Balardung until conquered by the Nungas just before the settlement of the Swan River colony. The white aboriginals were strengthened with the settlement of the Karakin Lakes area near the Moore River by the Dutch survivors of the wreck of the Concordia in 1708. The two white tribes allied and kept the Nungas to the south. However the Whites were also under threats by the encroaching aborigines from the north. These northern black aborigines were descendants of the Nungas neighboring island in the Indian Ocean called Gauenispola by Marco Polo who had landed in the north of Western Australia after 1530 and then spread out across Australia.

The Nungas (Necouran) and the Polans (Gauenispola) were possibly from southern India or South America and settled on their islands a long time before the 13th century AD. Recent dna testing demonstrated that some Australian aborigines have similar dna to Indians and they also have similar kinship laws to the Southern Indians. They estimated that this Indian contribution to Aboriginal dna occurred about 4000 years ago based on 141 generations. They used a rather high estimate of generations of 30 when it would be more likely to be 15-20 years between generations thus making the period between 2800-2100 years ago  that the Aboriginals left India for the Southern Indian Ocean Islands. It was in their Island home that C-M347 y-dna mutation occurred before coming to Australia. The bones of Australian aborigines have also been found in South America which may have been their original homeland before settling on the islands near Kergeulen and India.

The Islands of Necouran (Nungan) and Gauenispola were a few hundred kilometres east of the Heard and McDonald Islands on the Kergeulen Plateau (sunken continent). Before the Islands sunk around 1530 the "Aborigines" were moved north west to Australia in ships. It would seem that the disaster was known before the final events and a huge rescue operation began to move the populations out of the southern Indian Ocean to Australia and Indonesia (South East Asia).  It would seem the Nungas were settled on the southern coast towards South Australia and the Polans were settled inland in the kingdom of Habor (Chabor or Heber) south of Broome and north of Pardoo on an arm (near the Sandfire Roadhouse) of the Shallow Inland Sea. This is part of the so called Percival Paleodrainage line in the Paterson region of Western Australia. After the sinking of the coastline this settlement was on the new coastline and the inland Sea began to dry up. 

However the Inland Sea still existed for some time after 1530 and is found in many Aboriginal tales and stories. Around 1606 (evolutionary dating 10,000 years ago) major geological events occurred that created the Crater lakes and accelerated the drying up of the Inland Sea and separated Tasmania from the mainland. Pedro Fernandez de Queiros stated that New Guinea was still connected to Australia and it was thus in 1606 that this separation happened due to these geological shakings creating the Torres Strait which de Queiros' fellow captain de Torres was able to use after he left Australia (Nova Jerusalem at Port Curtis). 

After the sinking of the original coastline and the huge Tsunami that hit Western Australia in 1530 the Polan (Paman) aborigines settled around the remnant of the Shallow Inland Sea. After 1606 with the drying up of the Inland Sea the "Aborigines" on the east side of the Sea moved further East and over the Blue Mountains into New South Wales and Queensland pushing the ancestral "Torres Strait Islanders" further North. These "Torres Strait" people had been much further South since 1530 when they had been resettled from Lesser Java (Kerguelen Plateau) to Indonesia and New Guinea.

Diverse Davidic Y-DNA


Many genealogists and others hoped that by studying the y-dna of the famous Jewish Rabbinic families that claimed Davidic descent they would discover the Davidic dna. However many were disappointed to find that these families were of diverse male lineages including J, I, Q, R1b, R1a, E1b, G etc.

A point forgotten is that Davidic status can also be received through maternal lineages. For example the Davidic Nasiim of the Sanhedrin descended from Hillel and Gamaliel were only Davidic through Hillel's mother but were of the Tribe of Benjamin (Q ydna) through his father. Thus those families claiming Davidic ancestry of Q y-dna may be Davidic descendants of the House of Hillel. 

Those families claiming Davidic descent of G y-dna may be descended from the Hunza Valley Princes that came to Sicily in the 11th century descended from Alexander the Great who intermarried with the Davidic Princesses of the Machir Dynasty of Narbonne. Those of J y-dna (Assyrian) may come from the marriage of Merwan ha Levi to a Davidic Princess of Narbonne. Those of R1a ydna (Tribes of Joseph) may descend from the Khazar Royal House which also had Davidic status from the Davidic ancestress Serakh.



The direct male lines of David are R1b-M269 (Sons of Leah) and R1b-L21 (Davidic House of Nathan). Everyone who has R1b-M269+ or R1b-M269- in their genetic tree descend from one of the six sons or Tribes of Leah- Reuben, Levi, Judah, Simeon, Issachar and Zebulon. Pharaoh Tutankhamun was R1b-M269+.  While everyone who is R1b-L21+ is of direct male line Davidic ancestry it does not mean that they are the only direct male line Davidic descendants. However it does mean that those who are R1b-M269+ and R1b-U106+ are not of direct male line Davidic ancestry as they are from the Tribe of Zebulon (but are not the only Zebulonite clan). However certain U106 families may have Davidic status through a maternal Davidic line.

However we must also remember that even tribal status may come through a female if she marries someone of a lesser yichus. If a Zebulonite lady (whose father was R1b-U106) married a convert who was E1b then the children would take the mother's tribal status. So while each Tribe may be mainly of direct male lineage from their founder, there would also be those who are of different male lines that have taken tribal status. If such male lines were fertile for sons then the Tribe may after a few generations have a large group of Tribal members of y-dna differing from other tribal members. 

Someone could be a direct male line descendant of Zebulon of R1b-U106+ who marries a Gentile woman. Their son is thus a Gentile but a male line descendant of Zebulon. That son may convert and marry a woman whose father is of direct male line Benjaminite ancestry of Q y-dna. Their son would thus be of Benjaminite tribal status while having male line Zebulonite y-dna ancestry. 

Israelite, Hebrew and Jewish status is not purely genealogical or genetic but is a living and evolving community of people. When Jewish maternal ancestry can be shown by people who have become non-observant of Torah or converted to other religions etc then many Orthodox Jewish authorities will accept such maternally descended Jews back into the Jewish community without a conversion ceremony. After ten generations they are classified as Gentiles in regard to Torah observances and would need to go through ritual conversion to reenter the Jewish community.  This was the case with the conversos of Spain and Portugal, many prominent Sefardi Jewish families were Catholics for many generations before rejoining the Jewish community without needing to go through conversion.
