Can’t say that I was too surprised to find out about my descent from Chaos, as I don’t feel too far removed the mythological ‘original state of existence’ right now. Thankfully English heroic legend Sceaf provided the genealogical link to my descent from the Gods. It’s been a strange journey though: going from the Anglo Saxon Chronicle, through a variations on Sceaf’s lineage from Norse Mythology in the Edda (although not sure if that’s the Prose Edda or Poetic Edda), and on through to the epics of Greek Mythology, such as the Iliad and Odyssey. Well, there’s nothing like fitting the ‘facts’ to fit the theory.
