Description

Descent from Antiquity (commonly abbreviated as DFA) is the project of establishing a well-researched, generation-by- generation descent of living persons from people living in antiquity. It is an ultimate challenge in prosopography and genealogy.The idea is by no means new. Hellenistic dynasties, such as the Ptolemies, claimed descent from gods and legendary heroes. In the Middle Ages, major royal dynasties of Europe sponsored compilations claiming their descent from Julius Caesar, Alexander the Great, and other illustrious heroes or even gods of antiquity[citation needed], in particular the rulers of Troy (see also British Israelism, Euhemerism). Such claims were intended as propaganda glorifying a royal patron by trumpeting the antiquity and nobility of his ancestry. These descent lines included not only mythical figures but also stretches of outright fiction, much of which is still widely perpetuated today.
