The Family of Vortigern

This section looks at his ancestors, his sons and daughter, his wives and their parents, and finally his descendents through the genealogies.

This picture, from a manuscript of the Vergilius Romanus shows a dinner scene. Scholars such as Dark and Henig see close parallels between the figures depicted here, and Celtic/British art such as in fourth-century Durotrigan mosaics, the fifth-century Lullingstone wall paintings and the Lindisfarne Gospels. If true, the Vergilius Romanus would be the oldest British book, and the scene here could show Vortigern and his Family. Vatican Library, Vergilius Romanus (folio 100v).
