Ruling houses of Troy in Finland

Stuart Harris BS, MS, MBA

By combining Greek and Finnish history, a geneology emerges of two houses that supplied the rulers of Troy in Finland: Corythus and Elektra provided males, while Scamander and Leucippe provided females.

Greek mythology provides a sparse outline of Trojan history, embellished only during the last half year of the Trojan War by master bard Homer in the Iliad.

Finnish history elaborates in astounding detail a short period when the region around Troy was ruled by Leucippe, told by master bard Iasion-Väinämöinen, 50 tales collected into Kalevala. This identy sets the time of composition from 1431 to 1428 BC.
