Samson, a Nazarite, a mighty warrior of the tribe of Dan at the feast celebrating his marriage to a Philistine woman, proposed a riddle to the Philistines: "Out of the eater came forth meat, and out of the strong came forth sweetness." Judges 14:14
On the seventh day of the wedding feast, the devious bride extracted from Samson the interpretation of this riddle and gave its meaning to her people, ie., that the carcass of a young lion that Samson had killed with his bare hands had attracted a swarm of bees who then produced honey inside it.
At this Samson became embroiled in battle over the wager, slaying thirty Philistines -- but his wife was taken from him. Angered by their treachery, Samson sought vengeance by slaughtering many more Philistines and ultimately the Philistine lords.
Given the prophesy that; 'Dan shall be a serpent by the way, an adder in the path, that biteth the horse heels, so that his rider shall fall backward.' Genesis 49:17 -
Samson's riddle may be a prophecy that the descendants of the tribe of Dan will one day attempt to destroy the tribe of Judah, the line of David, (and Christ) in jealous revenge for God's judgment on their idolatry. From the carcass of the young lion [Judaism] the tribe of Dan [typified by the bees] will attempt to produce a golden age [symbolized by honey].
The conspiracy of the tribe of Dan, aka Satan's people, if any, therefore is to steal the messianic birthright of Christ from the tribe of Judah, the line of David and establish a false messianic kingdom on Earth.
The reptilian line of descent from 'Satan' appears to continue with the Merovingian Kings who retain the symbolic pre-occupation with the bees of their esoteric and prehistoric roots.
Finally, archaeological evidence cannot be ignored as a source for information, at the very least, on the Frankish/Merovingian mode of life. Among the greatest discoveries of lost objects was the 1653 accidental uncovering of Childeric I's tomb in the church of Saint Brice in Tournai. The grave objects included a golden bull's head and the famous golden insects (bees) on which Napoleon modelled his coronation cloak.
The Merovingian dynasty owes its name to the semi-legendary Merovech (Latinised as Meroveus or Merovius and in French as Merovée), leader of the Salian Franks, and emerges into wider history with the victories of his son Childeric I (reigned c.457 - 481) against the Visigoths, Saxons, and Alemanni. Childeric's son Clovis I (481 - 511) went on to unite most of Gaul north of the Loire under his control around 486, when he defeated Syagrius, the Roman ruler in those parts
Even when several Merovingian kings simultaneously ruled their own realms, the kingdom - not unlike the late Roman Empire - was conceived of as a single entity ruled collectively by these several kings (in their own realms) among whom a turn of events could result in the reunification of the whole kingdom under a single ruler. Leadership among the early Merovingians was probably based on mythical descent (reflected in Fredegar's account of the Quinotaur) and alleged divine patronage, expressed in terms of continued military success.
The Quinotaur (Lat. Quinotaurus) is a mythical sea creature mentioned in the 7th century Frankish Chronicle of Fredegar. Referred to as "bestea Neptuni Quinotauri similis", (the beast of Neptune which resembles a Quinotaur) it was held to have fathered Meroveus by attacking the wife of the Frankish king Chlodio and thus to have sired the line of Merovingian kings.
