*37.Eber Fionn - 84.Ailill Oluimm - the Heberian 1st King of Munster
1699 BC *37.Eber Fionn - of Fair Complexion was the the third son of 36.Mil the Scythian Gaelic Celtic Hero of Spain and the 3rd King of Castile and Portugal. 36.Mil / Milesius was originally known in Gaelic as, *36.Gollamh / Gallamh (warrior), which was to be later changed to 36.Milidh (from its meaning in Latin (warrior), by the Irish monks, and was then shortened to 36.Mil and all of the Scythian Gaelic Milesian Celtic Septs / Family branches in Ireland derive their generic name from 36.Mil.
*37.Eber Fionn was to be the eldest of the 3 brothers who would leave 36.Mil's particular Scythian Gaelic Milesian Celtic aristocratic warrior descendants in Ireland, where they would be known generically as the hEberians / Heberians (Descended from 37.Eber), who was to originally arrive into Erie / Erinn / Ireland from Spain along with his 7 brothers who were all the sons of 36.Mil. They were also to be accompanied by Scota / Scotia the mother of 6 and stepmother of 2, who was the daughter of Nectanbus a previous Pharaoh of Egypt, along with their Gaelic aristocratic warriors from Castile and Portugal. Of these 8 brothers only 3, who were sons of Scota would leave traceable aristocratic warrior Septs / Families in Ireland, and only 3 out of the 8 were to survive their second landing on the mainland. Of these 8 brothers, the 3 who were to leave Gaelic Milesian aristocratic warrior Septs were *37.Eber Fionn the ancestor of the Heberian Septs / Family branches, *37.Eremon the ancestor of the Heremonian Septs, and 37.Ir the ancestor of the Irian Septs. 37.Ir was to be among the 5 brothers who were to be drowned during their second landing. Their oldest surviving half - brother, 37.Amergin / Amargein / Aimirgin (Born of Song) was not a son of Scota, but of Seang a Scythian Celtic Princess, who had been 36.Mil's first wife, who had died prior to him going to Egypt. One of her sons, 37.Amergin Glungheal was to be an Ollamh (druid / learned man) and as such he would be denied any chance of Kingship under Celtic practice. 37.Ir along with 4 of the other sons of 36.Mil were to be drowned due to 37.Amergin as their Druid, agreeing to the request of fair play made by the Scythian Nemedian Celtic Tuatha De Danann (The People of Danu) who were at this period in time the ruling aristocratic warrior class in Inis Ealga / Erie / Ireland. The initial Gaelic Milesian expedition on arriving for the first time had caught them unprepared, and 37.Amergin as their Gaelic Druid had considered that to retire beyond a specific number of waves and land their ships once again would be the right thing to do under accepted Celtic practice. Many of the Gaelic warriors had been against this decision, and it was certainly to prove disastrous for many of them, but as Celts this was their custom, as was another of only one warrior up against another warrior at a time. Despite the numerous losses during their second landing, due to a terrible storm occurring, those of the Gaels who survived were to succeed and gain outright control in Eire / Erinn / Ireland then for the Gaels.
*37.Eber Fionn's other surviving younger brother, *37.Eremon's descendants would evolve into the Gaelic Milesian hEremonians / Heremonian aristocratic warrior Celtic Septs / Family branches who would have the most impact genetically in Ireland, initially in the Midlands / Midhe / Meath in Northern Leinster, then in the Connacht Province to the west of the River Shannon, and then in Southern Leinster below Dublin, the Munster Province further south, and finally the Ulster Province in the north. The Heremonians would eventually come to predominantly rule over Ireland as the Gaelic Milesian aristocratic warrior Celtic Kings of Eire / Erinn / Ireland. (For he who rules Tara rules Ireland).
*37.Heber Fionn's other brother 37.Ir who was among the 5 brothers who were drowned during the second landing, would nevertheless, become the direct male line ancestor of the Gaelic Milesian aristocratic warrior Celtic Irian Septs, which see, who were to be initially settled into Co. Antrim, Co. Armagh and Co. Down in the east of the Ulster Province. They were also early on to produce Gaelic Milesian aristocratic warrior Irian Kings of Ulster, then Kings of Erinn, and later still Kings of Ulaid / Ulidia, which was the territory situated on the east coast of Ulster from which Ulster received its name, (Land of the Ulaidh.)
*37.Eber Fionn's deceased great - uncle, 35.Ithe, through his surviving son, 36.Lewy / Lughaidh, would also produce the Gaelic Ithian Lughadian aristocratic warrior Septs / Family branches, which see, who would also be later known as the Darinians / Dairinoi from Daire one of their Chiefs, after being initially allocated territory in the south of Ireland in Co. Cork in Southern Munster. They basically remained throughout the territory there, absorbing the Scythian Nemedian Fir Bolg Erainn Celtic Septs, and evolving into the Ithian Lughadian Darinian Corca Loigde (Ui Luighe) Septs. The Ithian Septs also would provide 5 Gaelic Ithian Kings of Tara / Erinn.
*37.Eber Fionn became the Gaelic Milesian Heberian joint 1st King of Eire / Erinn, after taking up the territory in the south of Ireland, known now as Eber's Half, (Southern Leinster and the Munster Province) and gave some of his territory in the Munster Province to his older half - brother, 37.Amergin who acted as their Druid, with his youngest brother *37.Eremon, becoming the joint Heremonian 1st King of Eire / Erinn, taking the territory in the north, known now as Eremon's Half.
*37.Eber Fionn was to be killed within a year in the Battle of Ard Rath in Yestria, when he went up against the forces of his younger brother, *37.Eremon during a disagreement, due to the greed of their wives over who should control the best Glens (Valleys) in Ireland for their cattle. *37.Eber Fionn was to leave behind 5 sons, including *38.Fergnae, *38.Feron and *38.Orba who would carry out reprisals for his death against 3 of *37.Eremon's sons who were to become the next Heremonian joint Kings of Erinn when *37.Eremon was to die after ruling Erie / Erinn all up for 15 years. One of *37.Eremon's 3 sons was to die a natural death, and the other two were to be killed in the Battle of Ard Ladron against 4 of the sons of *37.Eber Fionn who then also took a turn at ruling in Erie / Erinn as the joint Heberian Kings of Erinn. Within 6 months they too were to be killed in the Battle of Gulmartha by *37.Eremon's youngest son, *38.Euriabis aka *38.Irial Faidh - the Prophet aka *38.Trial / Eurialus who became the Heremonian 10th King of Erinn.
*37.Eber Fionn's descendants were to become the Heberian aristocratic warrior Septs in the south of Erie / Ireland in Eber's Half, in the territory that is now Southern Leinster and the Munster Province, which much later on in the 2nd Century AD would be reduced by one off *37.Eremon's descendants, *83.Conn - of the Hundred Battles who would then be the 110th King of Ireland. (He would become the male line direct ancestor of his own Heremonian Dal Cuinn (People of *83.Conn Septs). He was to gain complete control in Ireland over the Irians, and Heberians and then join Southern Leinster to Northern Leinster, creating the whole of the Leinster Province, which then only left the Munster Province to the Heberians and Ithians, containing what is now Co. Cork, Co. Kerry, Co. Limerick, Co. Tipperary and Co. Waterford. Despite this initial loss the Heberian Septs were to never give up on trying to retrieve control over Southern Leinster in Eber's Half.
*37.Eber Fionn's descendants from then on in the 2nd Century AD were to evolve into 3 main individual Heberian Septs / Family branches of Heberian Tuaths / Family regions, and they would be known then as the (1) Eoghanachta Septs, which see, descended from 85.Eoghan Mor, (2) the Dal gCais Septs descended from 85.Cormac Cass - of the Curly Hair, which see, (3) the Cianachta Septs descended from 85.Cian / Keen, which see, who were to be 3 brothers who were the sons of 84.Ailill Oluimm who was to be the Heberian 1st King of Munster. In the early 4th Century AD the eastern part of Co. Clare in the south - west of the River Shannon would also be annexed, to these 5 individual territories in the original Munster Province, as sword land, although it was then geographically the most southern part of the Connacht Province in the west of Ireland.
*38.Con Maol who was to become the Gaelic Milesian Heberian 12th King of Erinn in his own right, was the fifth and youngest son of *37.Eber Fionn, and over time he was to be involved in 20 battles, until he was to finally kill *39.Eithrial / Eitreol the Heremonian 11th King of Erinn, who had ruled previously for 20 years, who was the son of *38.Irial Faidh who had been the 10th King of Erinn. *38.Con Maol was to rule for 30 years in his own right until he too was to be also killed in the Battle of Aunarde Tavlton by *41.Tigernmas / Tighearnmhas who then became the Heremonian 13th King of Erinn descended from *37.Eremon.
*39.Eochy / Eochaidh Faobhar Glas, who was a son of *38.Con Maol the previous 12th King of Erinn, became the Gaelic Milesian Heberian 17th King of Erinn and although he too was to fight many battles against the Heremonians over the sovereignty in Erinn / Ireland, he was to rule for 20 years in his own right, until he was defeated and killed in the Battle of Carmany. His older son, 40.Mafebbis, would become the father of *41.Eochy / Eochaidh the future Heberian 19th King of Erinn.
