Modern English translation of the above passage, as g i v e n i n Geoffey of Monmouth, The History of the King s o f Br it ain , trans. Lewis Thorpe London 1966 , p. 12 1 He Claudius therefore proposed peace to him Arvirar g u s , promising to give him his own daughter, if onl y h e wo u l d recognize that the kingdom of Britain was un de r the s w a y of Rome. His nobles persuaded Arvirargus t o a bandon h i s p lans for battle and to accept the propos al s of Claudi us . Th eir argument was that it could be n o di sgrace for h i m to su bmit to the Romans, since the y wer e the acknowled ge d overlo rds of the whole world. A rvirar gus was swayed b y t hese argu ments and by others o f a sim ilar nature. He a ccep ted thei r advice and submit ted to C laudius. Claudiu s soo n sent to R ome for his dau ghter. Wi th the help of Ar virarg us he subdue d the Orkne ys and th e other islands i n that ne ighbourhood. At the end of that winter the messengers returned wit h C l a u dius daughter and handed her over to her father . Th e g ir l s name was Genvissa Genuissa . Her beaut y wa s suc h th a t everyone who saw her was filled with ad mirat ion. O nce s h e had been united with him in lawful m arriag e, sh e inflam e d the King with such burning passio n tha t he pre ferred h e r company to anything else in th e world . As a re sult of t hi s Arvirargus made up his min d to giv e some spe cial mar k o f distinction to the plac e where h e had marrie d her. H e sug gested to Claudius th at the tw o of them shou ld foun d ther e a city which shou ld perpetu ate in times t o come th e memor y of so happ y a marriage . Claudius agree d and order ed a tow n to b e built which s hould be called K aerglou or G louceste r . Down to our ow n day it retains it s site on th e ban k of th e Severn, bet ween Wales and Loegr ia. Some, how ev er, say tha t it too k its name from Duke Gl oius, whom Cl a udius fathere d in t hat city and to whom h e granted con tro l of the duch y o f the Welsh after Arvirar gus. !BIRTH edwardiii.ged, edwardiii.ged !DEATH Our Family Tree, Our Family Tree, Jordan & Kimble , 1 929 !DEATH edwardiii.ged, edwardiii.ged !DEATH PrenticeNet A Lineage to Caesar, PrenticeNet A Li n eage to Caesar, WWW !DEATH Gedcom File G675, Gedcom File G675, http pedigree . cgi bin pedview.dll?&ti 0&fi l e G675&ind3 8 302 !DEATH Sweet Greene.FTW, Sweet Greene.FTW
