Unless I'm very much mistaken, Alaric Morgan is indeed descended from Rhys Thuryn and the answer I found is in the Codex.

The one thing I searched for high and low is not to be found at either of these two sites, nor in the Codex. It was that unanswered question that caused me to write some fan fiction. Alaric's descending from Rhys. I know the connection must exist. It just has too! Someday KK will enlighten us.  Or so I hope.

Even if KK hasn't told us the exact path, we know the connection does exist. She said that when she was stuck writing The Knighting of Derry, she figured out the path. That tidbit of information is in an introduction to the The Knighting of Derry. So, it's more a matter of KK telling us one day, or someone who has a copy of the Codex will find enough clues to figure it out. :)

I can tell you if you want. Or drop hints like a riddle-obsessed oracle until you find it if you'd prefer. (I've double-checked and I'm sure I'm not mistaken).

I'm quite curious myself, especially since we asked KK in chat about that connection sometime earlier in the year, and whatever she had worked out in her head all those years ago she has evidently forgotten, since all she could recall was how Duncan connects to the Camber bloodline, not how Morgan is descended from him. So unless she remembers again, the solution to that mystery is unlikely to come from her. So if you've rediscovered the link, please share!

It is 4:00 am in the morning I think I found it an hour ago. Trouble is I spent some time confirming the generations and other facts. When I went back to confirm the one marriage that makes it work I could not refind where that one fact was stated.  The page number I had written down was not correct. Yikes
My eyes are crossing. I will check again in the morning. Don't tell me just yet.

I found it!  I have Proof!
I am still writing out the full generational line and will post it when it is done.
Meanwhile if you want a hint, it is generation 4 and 5. (Camber generation one and Alaric generation ten)

If you need a hint, it is Roger McLain's Mother. The succession is clearly in print but can not be found by looking up the McLain line.

Need a second hint? Rhysel Jocelyn Thuryn, (Daughter of Rhys and Evaine) has a daughter named Tiphane, Lady Ainslie, who marries the Duke of Cassan, Generation four.  Tiphane has two daughters and a son. The Older daughter marries Cluim Haldane, and the younger daughter marries a McLain, Roger's father.

Can you name Roger McLain's parents? Roger McLain is Generation six.
I have the page number with the proof if you can not find it.

Arrgh! I don't have the time right now to do the research, so if someone can share where the information can be found, I will be forever in your debt.  Or at least very grateful.   :D

Feel free to share by PM if you don't want to spoil the search for others.

Jerusha I sent you a PM with my Generation chart that I have nearly finished.
I hope the long unanswered question is finally answered.  ;D   Camber - Alaric through descendents of Rhysel.
But don't worry. This only confirms my fan fiction desire to have two generational lines that lead from Camber to Alaric. The second through descendents of Tieg. ;D

Since I woke absurdly early today I finished some supplementary work for the fic and thought I may as well post it here. Pertinent in that pretty much all of this is information from the Codex, simply presented a little differently:

Drakensis,

What program(s) did you use to generate these charts? They are very nice! Thanks so much for sharing with us!

Laurna,

I think that I know Roger's mother, but since the OS where I run my main genealogy program is down, I can't be sure!

Jerusha I sent you a PM with my Generation chart that I have nearly finished.
I hope the long unanswered question is finally answered.  ;D   Camber - Alaric through descendents of Rhysel.
But don't worry. This only confirms my fan fiction desire to have two generational lines that lead from Camber to Alaric. The second through descendents of Tieg. ;D

I'm begging you! Will you kindly share your Generational chart (or at least the page number!) with the rest of us? Pretty please?!

What a day!
I was so happy I had answered this riddle that I went outside to play with my dogs. I got them all jazzed up. Apparently, too jazzed. We had been playing for about 30 minutes when I decided to go brush a horse. I guess the dogs didn't want me to go. They were dashing in and out of my feet, and in one step Jessa Mia was under my foot. Terrified I might hurt her if I stepped down, I  tripped side ways. Clunk!  I was on the ground with many dogy tongues licking my face. I went to work but my right foot swelled up. So after an x-ray, I have a broken foot.

But is is OK.  I am at home in a cast, but I have a lot more time to fix that genealogy chart.

The only obstacle is the peculiar wording in the sentence I found.

Here is the entry:
"Tambert I Fitz - Arthur Quinnell, 1st Duke of Cassan. He was born in the IXth day of August in the Year of our Lord 916, being the eldest son and Heir of Fane Earl Fitz-arthur and Anne Quinnell Princess of Cassan, and grandson of Tammaron Earl Fitz-Arthur and Ambert last Sovereign Prince of Cassan. He intermarried with Adelicia Lady Of Horthness daughter of Rhun Earl of Sheele on the XXIst day of May in the year 929 and by her he had children: The hereditary Duke Tammaron II later Duke of Cassan; the Lord Flynn later Earl Derry; the Lady Eldona; the Lady Annetta.
Duke Tambert's eldest son, Tammaron Duke of Cassan, married Tiphane Lady Ainslie on the XVIIth day of August in the year 950, and by her he had children: The Lady Swynbeth, who intermarried with Cluim King of Gwynedd; the Hereditary Duke Fane, later Duke of Cassan who intermarried with Ardana Lady de Courcy; The Lady Nerina, a twin to her brother, who intermarried with Sir Andrew McLain, father of Sir Roger McLain."

My only concern here is that Andrew McLain had not been married previously. That Roger is indeed Nerina's son and not a son from a different marriage. KK and Robert would not do that to us, Would they?  There is no evidence of Andrew McLain being married before he married Nerina, so I am using this as fact.

Drakensis,

What program(s) did you use to generate these charts? They are very nice! Thanks so much for sharing with us!

Honestly, it's nothing but Windows Paint.

What a day!
I was so happy I had answered this riddle that I went outside to play with my dogs. I got them all jazzed up. Apparently, too jazzed. We had been playing for about 30 minutes when I decided to go brush a horse. I guess the dogs didn't want me to go. They were dashing in and out of my feet, and in one step Jessa Mia was under my foot. Terrified I might hurt her if I stepped down, I  tripped side ways. Clunk!  I was on the ground with many dogy tongues licking my face. I went to work but my right foot swelled up. So after an x-ray, I have a broken foot.
I'm sorry to hear of your injury.

The only obstacle is the peculiar wording in the sentence I found.

Here is the entry:
"Tambert I Fitz - Arthur Quinnell, 1st Duke of Cassan. He was born in the IXth day of August in the Year of our Lord 916, being the eldest son and Heir of Fane Earl Fitz-arthur and Anne Quinnell Princess of Cassan, and grandson of Tammaron Earl Fitz-Arthur and Ambert last Sovereign Prince of Cassan. He intermarried with Adelicia Lady Of Horthness daughter of Rhun Earl of Sheele on the XXIst day of May in the year 929 and by her he had children: The hereditary Duke Tammaron II later Duke of Cassan; the Lord Flynn later Earl Derry; the Lady Eldona; the Lady Annetta.
Duke Tambert's eldest son, Tammaron Duke of Cassan, married Tiphane Lady Ainslie on the XVIIth day of August in the year 950, and by her he had children: The Lady Swynbeth, who intermarried with Cluim King of Gwynedd; the Hereditary Duke Fane, later Duke of Cassan who intermarried with Ardana Lady de Courcy; The Lady Nerina, a twin to her brother, who intermarried with Sir Andrew McLain, father of Sir Roger McLain."

My only concern here is that Andrew McLain had not been married previously. That Roger is indeed Nerina's son and not a son from a different marriage. KK and Robert would not do that to us, Would they?  There is no evidence of Andrew McLain being married before he married Nerina, so I am using this as fact.
Oh my. That's not the connection I'd found, but it confirms the one point of uncertainty I had. It all looks correct to me, but I had a different generation five and generation six, tracking the succession through Nerina's brother Fane - his son Tambert II was the father of Adelicia, who married Arnall McLain. My only doubt was some of Tammaron's children might be from another marriage.

Roger McLain may have had two marriages since Tairchell McLain inherits Leanshire and his younger brother Arnall inherits Kierney in 1033 - presumably on his mother's death - while Tairchell McLain would still be alive until 1060. Could I ask your source for Tairchell and Arnall's dates of birth? My own theory was that Arnall was the elder and Tairchell was specifically deeded Leanshire rather than it defaulting to the eldest son (only for it to revert to Arnall when Tairchell had no living heirs). Or maybe there's some specific requirement to separate the titles - otherwise the McLains of Leanshire should probably have inherited Kierney since they're descended of the last MacLean Earl whereas the title actually went to the daughter of the last Earl's brother and thus to the MacInnis family.

(also, you list Roger as born on or after 990 - I think you mean 'before')

It's an excellent chart though!


Edit: found the dates of birth on the timeline, which also states Tairchell was Earl before Arnall. That makes more sense than the list of Earls which doesn't mention Tairchell and lists Arnall directly after their mother.
