*** Ireland and Scotland were first settled by Egyptians. ***

The legends of Ireland and Scotland tell a fantastic tale of an Egyptian queen and her Greek husband, who were exiled from Egypt to Ireland at some point during the second millennium BC. It is said that it was from this Queen Scota and King Gaythelos that the modern titles for the Scottish and Gaelic people were derived. But what are we to make of this ancient story – is it based more upon fact or fiction?

Historians have, as one might expect, taken the story to be complete fiction; but Ralph Ellis has taken a lateral look at this mythology, and found many links and associations that lead to one inescapable conclusion – that the extraordinary tale of Queen Scota and King Gaythelos is probably true.

The paperback is still a double-book (Scota and Cleopatra), but in the Kindle versions the two books have been separated.
