Descendants of Tubal-cain
Generation No. 13
Tubal Cain (Tobalkin the Vulcan, MES-KALAM-DUG)  Lamech (=Zillah)  Methusael (=Edna?)  Mehujael (=?)  Irad (=Baraka?)  Enoch (=Edna?)  Cain (=Luluwa)  Enki and Eve  Enki and Nin-khursag  Anu and Antu (or Ki)  Anshar and Kishar  Lahmu and Lahamu  Tiamat and Absu 
Tubal-Cain, King of Ur, Hero of the Good land, c. 3200 BC, (In Genesis 4:22) was a descendant of Cain, the son of Lamech and Zillah, and brother of Na’amah. According to the Bible, he invented metalworking... a view shared by Laurence Gardner (Genesis of the Grail Kings),
The re-introduction into the royal line of Lilith and the matriarchal descent is important, as is the consistent return to the Dragon line. The Dragon is, in fact, continually referenced at various critical junctures in the lines of descent. Curiously, however, such mentions tend to be primarily those of females... from Tiamat and Lilith, to Queens Sobeknefru and Boudicca. In the latter’s reign the emphasis shifted from Dragon Queen to male Pendragons, despite the fact that the males were guardians, warriors, and/or consorts of the Dragon Queens. Importantly, Pendragon is a Welsh term (feminine form of pen head, dragon standard; a male carrying the queen’s standard). The Catholic Church then created myths of their heroes (like a Saint George) killing the allegedly evil Dragons (i.e., the female, higher ranking lines of the royalty).
But it gets much more interesting, fascinating, involved, and connected to so many other anomalies.
For example, as a surprisingly relevant aside, one should note that one of the children of Tubal-Cain was Iapetus (aka Japhet). Iapetus is also the name of one of Saturn’s moons (and possibly the most extraordinary planetary, allegedly natural satellite in the solar system). Astoundingly, it is this satellite, this Iapetus, that may even have been a seed carrier from different parts of the galaxy!
The satellite naming may or may not have been a coincidence! Keep in mind, for example, that Iapetus was a Titan in mythology (including being the father of both Atlas and Prometheus... both of the latter two who are considered to be the “fathers of mankind”). Curiously, Iapetus is also the son of Uranus (traditionally associated with Anu). Finally, Iapetus was an ancient ocean between Laurentia and Baltica... possibly a reference to Tiamat in her ocean going mode.
Now... according to Wikipedia: "In Greek mythology, the Hesperides are nymphs who tend a blissful garden in a far western corner of the world, located near the Atlas mountains in Tanger, Morocco at the edge of the encircling Oceanus, the world-ocean."
Iapetus' relationship to an ancient ocean, might then be an astounding Freudian slip. At the same time, we must ask ourselves: What would account for such Eden-like bliss? Besides the nymphs, I mean? What about the golden apples? As it turns out, in the Garden of the Hesperides, the golden apples were considered to be an incredibly valuable fruit, one which was attributed directly to the goddess (in the Greek version, Hera). Furthermore, the golden apples were guarded by a "never-sleeping, hundred-headed dragon named Ladon." In Norse mythology, the golden apples "are depicted as divine food and the source of immortality." For example, in Richard Wagner's opera, Des Ring de Nibelungen, the goddess Freia is featured along with her golden apples [note the cat in the picture!], the latter which are accorded their own lietmotif. [Apples didn't again have it so good as for as the limelight until the time of William Tell.]
Very importantly, the eleventh Labor of Hercules [someone whose masculinity is seldom questioned, i.e., he may very well have been something of a male chauvinist pig...] was his stealing of the golden apples from the garden. Now... why exactly would Hercules, or those putting him up to it, want to steal said apples? Why were they so valuable? And why (as per Wikipedia) were "the sites selected [for all of Hercules' famous "labors" (aka jobs/capers)] all previously strongholds of Hera or the 'Goddess' and also Entrances to the Netherworld"? Was there something extraordinarily important (particularly to a male ascendant patriarchy) in both the golden apples and the Netherworld?
Meanwhile, back at the genealogical ranch, Iapetus (Japhet), as an ancestor, is allegedly responsible for the descent of kings into Anatolia. This becomes notably relevant, when Gardner (Genesis of the Grail Kings, page 224) notes that the Grail dynasty from David and Solomon would ultimately progress to the Merovingians kings of Gaul and other established kingdoms in Ireland and Celtic Britain. "These lines were linked through marriage to parallel Dragon stains from Ham, Japhet and Tubal-cain, which had survived as the royal houses of Scythia and Anatolia, and the family had its own marital links with the early princesses of Egypt." This would eventually produce the first Pendragon (Pen Draco Insularis) of Britain, in the name and form of "King Cymbeline of the House of Camu-lot, who was installed about AD 10."
If there is one outstanding thread in this Mother of All Family Trees, it is the Dragon.
Interestingly, again according to Gardner (ibid, page 162), "The parallel lines from Ham and Japhet progressed into Arabia, Anatolia and Greater Scythia by the Black Sea, then eventually across Europe to Ireland." "Ham and Japhet were key ancestors of the Scots Gaels and, as correctly determined by the noted scholar Robert Graves, Japhet was known to the Greeks as Iapetus -- a traditional style within his Titanic strain. In practice, he was Iapetus II, the great Anu having been Iapetus I."

Generation No. 14
Ham (Chem-Zarathustra)  Tubal Cain (=Nin-banda)  Lamech (=Zillah)  Methusael (=Edna?)  Mehujael (=?)  Irad (=Baraka?)  Enoch (=Edna?)  Cain (=Luluwa)  Enki and Eve  Enki and Nin-khursag  Anu and Antu (OR Ki)  Anshar and Kishar  Lahmu and Lahamu  Tiamat and Absu 
This is NOT the Ham, aka the middle (Genesis 5:32, 6:10) or youngest (Genesis 9:24) son of Noah. Instead, “In strict terms of sovereign genealogy, the line of Ham and Nimrod (in descent from Cain, Lamech and Tubal-cain) held the true heritage of Grail kingship, while the Sethian line through Noah and Shem were of lesser standing. The heritage of Ham was extremely important to Messianic history. A collection of ancient Aramaic writings relates that Nimrod was the father of an Egyptian pharaoh, which a separate Ethiopic text identifies as Anedjib, a king of the first dynasty of Egypt, reigning about 3000 BC, at precisely the time of Nimrod. Also... Ham is also identified as Thoth, aka Hermes Trismegistus, and responsible for the Book of Thoth, as well as the Egyptian Book of the Dead. [emphasis added] [Laurence Gardner, Genesis of the Grail Kings, pages 154-159] The "Chem" in Ham's alternative name might also related the Egyptian god from where the name Alchemy derives.
"Cain’s Ham is also identified with the sign of Capricorn (Archon of the 10th Age of Capricorn) and the horns of the goat, i.e., the inverted pentagram, which anti-Ham forces have likened to the horns of Satan, witchcraft, and other assorted blasphemies. The problem is that the Egyptian goddess Hathor was traditionally portrayed with horns... as a symbol of the wearer being receptive of knowledge from above. Female horns were in fact often symbolized by an upturned, horizontal crescent moon, whereas the sun disc was a male emblem. Since horns were associated with godly communication, there were in later times the objects of kingly or warrior adornment, being attached to helmets such as the headpiece of the fifth-century Frankish King Clovis. [See Meroveus for another ancestor.] Even Michelangelo added horns to his famous statue of Moses on the Roman monument to Pope Julius II.
Meanwhile, Nimrod is a Mesopotamian monarch mentioned in the Book of Genesis, who also figures in many legends and folk tales. He is depicted in the Bible as a mighty ruler and nation builder who founded many cities, including the great Babel or Babylon. Despite his stance as a powerful leader, his reputation was tarnished by his traditional association with the construction of the Tower of Babel. The gist of the argument is that since his kingdom included cities (the “Land of Nimrod”: Uruk, Akkad, Calneh... and Babylon (Babel) in Shinar [Sumeria], it is usually further assumed that it was under his direction that the building began; this is the view adopted in the Targums and later texts such as the writings of Josephus. Some extra biblical sources, however, assert to the contrary, that Nimrod left the district before the building of the tower.
Jewish tradition brings Nimrod and Abraham (despite the massive differences in the ages in which they lived) together in cataclysmic collisions, as if cosmic confrontations between Good and Evil, and especially of Monetheism against paganism and idolatry. Basically, most of this is simply more of the continuing quest to discredit Cain and his lineage.

Generation No. 25
Nefert (Neferet)  Missing Generations [15-24] Ham (=Neelata-mek)  Tubal Cain (=Nin-banda)  Lamech (=Zillah)  Methusael (=Edna?)  Mehujael (=?)  Irad (=Baraka?)  Enoch (=Edna?)  Cain (=Luluwa)  Enki and Eve  Enki and Nin-khursag  Anu and Antu (OR Ki)  Anshar and Kishar  Lahmu and Lahamu  Tiamat and Absu 
Nefert and Senusret are the grandparents and namesakes of Senusret I, the second pharaoh of the 12th Dynasty of Egypt, and his wife Nefertitanen. [Supposedly, these names were so tough, that once the ancients learned how to spell and pronounce them, they didn’t want to have learn new ones.]
Generation No. 26
1. Tohwait (Nfry-ta-Tjenen)  Nefert (=Senusret of Elephantine)  Missing Generations [15-24] Ham (=Neelata-mek)  Tubal Cain (=Nin-banda)  Lamech (=Zillah)  Methusael (=Edna?)  Mehujael (=?)  Irad (=Baraka?)  Enoch (=Edna?)  Cain (=Luluwa)  Enki and Eve  Enki and Nin-khursag  Anu and Antu (OR Ki)  Anshar and Kishar  Lahmu and Lahamu  Tiamat and Absu 
It might appear that Tohwait’s claim to fame is that she married well (and produced the all important heirs to the throne)... and to some extent this is true. Unfortunately, we really know very little more about her... despite the fact she represents the critical importance of the matriarchal contribution to the line of descent. She may, in fact, have actually legitimized both Amenemhet and Terah’s respective reigns. In Amenemhet’s case, this was the initiation of Egypt’s 12th Dynasty, where bloodline credentials were extraordinarily important. In addition, Tohwait’s second marriage to Terah is one example of several royal marriages that rejoined the Cain and Seth lines of succession, as well as subsequent royal lines. Intramarriage among the royals is inevitably the rule... rather than the exception.
2. Amenemhet I  (unknown) [1-25]
Amenemhet I was Pharaoh of Egypt (1991-1962 BC). He was previously Vizier to Menuhotep III, and later became Founder of 12th dynasty, and thus the first ruler of the Twelfth Dynasty (the dynasty considered to be the beginning of the Middle Kingdom of Egypt). Amenemhet I was not of royal lineage, and the composition of some literary works (the Prophecy of Neferti, the Instructions of Amenemhat) and, in architecture, the reversion to the pyramid-style complexes of the 6th dynasty rulers are often considered to have been attempts at legitimizing his rule. Thus the marriage to Tohwait (aka Nfry-ta-Tjenen) was all important to the new conqueror on the block.
Amenemhet I moved the capital from Thebes to Itjtawy and was buried in el-Lisht. His son Senusret I followed in his footsteps, building his pyramid such that it was a closer reflection of the 6th dynasty pyramids than that of Amenemhet I. On the other hand, the latter’s grandson, Amenemhet II, broke with this tradition.
Two literary works dating from the end of the reign give a picture about Amenemhet I's death. The Instructions of Amenemhet were supposedly counsels that the deceased king gave to his son during a dream. In the passage where he warns Senusret I against too great intimacy with his subjects, he tells the story of his own death as a reinforcement:
This passage refers to a conspiracy in which Amenemhat was killed by his own guards, when his son and co-regent Senusret I was leading a campaign in Libya. Another account of the following events is given in the Story of Sinuhe, a famous text of Egyptian literature:
Amenemhet I is considered to be the first king of Egypt to have had a co-regency with his son, in this case, Senusret I. A double dated stela is dated to the thirtieth year of Amenemhet I and to the tenth year of Senusret I, which establishes that Senusret was made co-regent in Amenemhet's 20th regnal year.
Amenemhat I's name is associated with one of only two sebayt or ethical "teachings" attributed to Egyptian monarchs, entitled the Instructions of Amenemhet, though it is generally thought today that it was composed by a scribe at the behest of the king. Amenemhet I's Horus name, Wehemmesu, which means renaissance or rebirth, is an allusion to the Old Kingdom period, whose cultural icons and models (such as pyramidal tombs and Old Kingdom artistic motifs) where emulated by the Twelfth Dynasty kings after the end of the First Intermediate Period. The cult of the king was also promoted during this period, which witnessed a steady return to a more centralized government.
