6245 BC (Third Storegga Slide) to the Great Flood of 2194–2191 BC. The peninsula
of Flylând (a name that survives in the island of Vlieland) lies to the north
of the large Rêne (Rhine) estuary. The place where Frya gave her Tex (laws), before ascending to the heavens (2194 BC), is marked here with a jol wheel.
2191 BC to the flood of 307–306 BC. The place where Frya issued her Tex had become a stream, over which Fryasburch (Den Burg), seat of the folksmoder
(Folk Mother), was built. The land around it wasrenamed Texlând
(Texel). The formerestuary of the Rêne was blocked and became the Flymar (Lake Flevo).
306 BC to the flood of AD 838 (when the Frisians had become Frankish
subjects). This covers the period of Frisian monarchy, based at Stâveren
(Stavoren), upon the shore of an enlarged Flymar, which was evolving into
what became known as the Almere, and later the Zuiderzee –currently the
The North Sea – Wr-alda’s Sea to the Frisians –
prior to the Great Flood, showing the large island known as ‘Doggerland’ by
modern archaeologists, and Atland, or Aldland (the ‘Old Land’), in the Oera Linda
Book. The Frisians numbered their years from the sinking of Atland in 2194
BC, when Frya issued her Tex.
The ten Frisian tribes, and their approximate areas of
settlement. The lands of the Kâd-hêmar extended west and south across Gaul. The Frisians also had colonies in Skênland (southern Sweden), Brittanja (Britain) – the land of the exiles – and Kadik (Cádiz), with many others on the coasts of the Mediterranean.
Seaborne expansion of the Frisians from circa 4700 BC to the submergence of Atland in 2194 BC, during the Neolithic and Bronze Ages, as determined by the date and distribution of megalithic remains. These include dykes, causeways, earthworks, menhirs, dolmens and stone circles – e.g. Stonehenge, England.

¹Frya is said to have lived among her descendants, the Frisians, for ‘seven generations’
before ascending to her watch-star, a mythological era corresponding to the growth of the megalithic culture, under the leadership of the
Maidenschaft – the order of Frya’s maidens, or priestesses.
²The Frisians were not politically united until the time of Fæsta, the first
Folk Mother, when attacks by hostile peoples such
as the Finns led to the creation of an army. At the age of
12, all boys were required to spend one day a week practicing with
weapons, and became warriors when they were proficient. Each Burgtmaagd (burchfâm) was given command of 300 young defenders (burchwêrar), plus 21 male elders (burchhêran) to advise her – seven civilians led by a Burgtmaster (burchmâster), seven warriors led by a Grevetman (grêvetman),
and seven seamen led by an Olderman (ôldermôn) – all of whom were elected by the people. Directly subordinate to the
Folk Mother herself was an annually elected king (kêning)
to command the Frisian armies, though strict rules limited his terms of
³Inka, or Inke, the Folk Mother, should not be confused with the earlier (male) Inka, brother of Tünis, who led his fleet in search of any surviving remnants of Atland above water, around 2006 BC – and who, it is speculated, may have sailed to South America and given his name to the later Inca people.

¹In 306 BC, after nearly three centuries of disunity, the Frisians elected Gosa as Folk Mother, but two years later the Frisian colonists
of the Punjab – where they had been settled since 1551 BC – returned, under the leadership of Friso. Apparently with Gosa’s blessing, Friso assumed
effective control as a military dictator. Though always listed as king, he never actually held that title, which was, however, granted to his son, Atha-rik.
²Radbod II fled to Denmark in 775, after the Franks completed their decades-long conquest of the Frisians. He and his fellow refugees stirred up their Pagan kinsmen, known to history as the Vikings, to attack and pillage Christian Europe.
³Tekla (Thecla), a daughter of Gondebold, maintained a Frisian enclave on the island of Ameland until 806, when she was forced to marry Taeke Cammingha, who became lord. The last surviving burch, at Foswerd (Nes), was converted into a Catholic convent.
