"Found in the huge double barrow in which the heathen king Gorm the Old, founder of the Danish monarchy (c. 900-936), and his Christian wife Thyra, were buried side by side at Jelling at Jutland. The figure is of wood; it represents Christ, but is surrounded by the triskele, the old symbol of Woden."

Hugh Montgomery was a British businessman, engineer, lecturer and amateur historian. He was the author of several books on engineering and played a leading role at the private Megatrend University of Applied Sciences in Belgrade. In his retirement he wrote several books on medieval history, propounding the theory that "god kings" of Europe were descendents of Jesus, whose lineage could be traced "through the Odonic and Davidic Dynasties".[1]


Montgomery was a successful businessman in his early life, conducting business operations in the Middle East, Africa, Americas and Europe. He obtained a a Ph.D. in Audiology from the Sussex College of Technology between 1974 and 1976, a diploma in contract law from the University of Wolverhampton.

He held a position for several years as a Professor and President of the Megatrend University of Applied Sciences in Belgrade where the subjects of his lectures included history, economics and politics. He was a founding Fellow of the Institution of Diagnostic Engineers and a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland.

He retired from his post in Serbia and returned to Uttoxeter in 2003 to begin a retirement concentrating on publishing books about his historical research. He became a local councillor in his home town where his work received considerable notability.[2] As councillor he proposed that Uttoxeter should become a "Portas Pilot" town, implementing the recommendations of Mary Portas for urban renewal.[3] Montgomery subsequently served as the town's deputy mayor.[4]

Historical theories

Montgomery was primarily a scholar of Medieval history. His book entitled "The Montgomery Millenium" charted his own family history back to Roger de Montgomery and the Dukes of Normandy that invaded Britain in 1066. His later work diverted on a tangent of tracing the genealogy of Jesus Christ to the Norse god Odin. He published four "God-Kings" books that advanced the theories of the likes of Dan Brown, Michael Baigent and Laurence Gardner, such as those raised in the Da Vinci Code which are considered controversial. Montgomery denounced these writers theories and vehemently debunked them, when speakng of Dan Brown, he called his book "a load of claptrap" and unable to comprehend that "people actually believe that the nonsense is true".[2][5]

His work discusses the terminology of Ulvungar to describe any male or female descendant of Ataulf and Maria. The First Ulvungar dynasty he describes as being descendants of Sigfred, who he calls Harald Hythetan or Herioldus Brocus.[6][7][8][9]

Latest reception of work

Princess Elisabeth of Yugoslavia was quoted as saying “Hugh is a well-known Medieval Historian, who has written and lectured on this subject for many years. His book ‘The God-Kings of Europe’, whilst controversial, must be taken seriously. His new book, ‘The God Kings of England’ is equally important and will add immeasurably to our knowledge and understanding of the period. I have always believed in uncovering the truth as much as possible and not just swallowing what one has been offered as reality. So much have been covered up by the people in power who, for reasons of control, preferred docile acceptance of facts to conscious excavating”.[10] Montgomery held a position in the Fleur de Lys Foundation charity, patroned by the Princess that is now held by his widow, Hermoine Esther Montgomery.[11]
