MANY students of antiquity have noted the fact that ancient kings and emperors assumed the title, "Son of the Sun." They have, however, entirely failed to give the reason for these monarchs assuming the title, except that in many instances it is asserted they claimed to be sons of the celestial orb.

To find the actual reason for the assumption of this title we must go back to the earth's first empire or kingdom, the Empire of the Sun. This empire was formed in the Motherland of Man, and a royal emblem or escutcheon was devised for it.

The Royal Escutcheon of MU


The Royal Escutcheon of Mu, the Empire of the Sun, was in no way a haphazard device, for every line in it has a particular meaning, as the deciphering and translation prove:

A. The form of the shield in a conventional letter M, one of the letters in Mu's hieratic alphabet. It was her symbolical letter; besides, the letter was her actual name, as the letter M was pronounced Mu and Moo in the language of Mu.

B. This hieroglyphic is the central figure in the escutcheon and reads: U-luumil - pronounced Oo-loo-oom-il, which, translated, is: "The Empire of - "

C. The circle enclosing the glyph is a picture of the sun, so that this compound glyph reads: "The Empire of the Sun." Then prefix the shield and it is: "Mu, the Empire of the Sun."

D. The sun has eight rays, symbolizing the eight cardinal points, thus saying that the whole earth was dominated by her.

E. The circle enclosing the rays is a symbol of the universe. This universe as applied to man - man's universe, the earth. It is thus shown again that her rays, her influence, fall on all mankind. Thus, the Royal Escutcheon of Mu tells us that all mankind on earth was under her rule. Mu was mistress of the whole earth, and this is confirmed by the Codex Cortesianus, where Mu is referred to as The Ruler.

Traditions say that when Mu was turned into an empire the Hieratic Head was selected to be the king or emperor.


The Hieratic Head represented the Deity in religious teachings. The sun, called Ra, was the collective and highest symbol of the Deity. The sun was, therefore, the symbol of "the King of Kings."

When elected to be the king, the Hieratic Head assumed the title of Ra - the sun - Ra being the king's symbol. To this title was added the name of the land Mu, so that the king's full title was Ra Mu, or Sun Mu.


Then a new name was added to the land and it was called The Empire of the Sun.

When the Empire of the Sun began is unknown. Empires and kingdoms which were under her suzerainty are traced back for more than 35,000 years, so that the commencement of the Empire of the Sun antedates 35,000 years ago by a long time; how long no one can say. It might have been only a thousand years and again it might have been tens of thousands of years. Nothing in the shape of an old record, writing or tradition has ever turned up to give us the slightest clue on this point.

Apparently, as the various colonies of the Motherland became large and sufficiently able to govern themselves, they were turned into empires or kingdoms, but under the control of the Motherland, so that the whole world was a great family under one control.

When a colony was turned into a kingdom or empire, the first king was one of the royal family of the Motherland, or possibly, in some instances, an appointee. When appointed, the new king assumed the title of Son of the Sun. This was not intended to imply that he was the Son of the celestial orb, but the Son of the Sun Dynasty of the Empire of the Sun, or Son of the Empire of the Sun.

The emblem of the new king was still the sun, but in order to show that he was a subject of the Motherland, or a part of it, only one-half of the orb was shown above the horizon, with rays ascending from it.

Valmiki, the ancient Hindu historian, speaking of the works of the Mayas in India, says: "Before the sun rose above the horizon," meaning before the Hindu colony was turned into an empire.

When the Maya colony of the Deccan, India, was turned into a kingdom, the first king was called Ra Ma. His emblem was the rising sun, with only one-half of it showing above the horizon. He assumed the title Son of the Sun.

The present Maharajah of Udipoor is said to be a direct descendant of Ra Ma. If so, his forefathers were kings more than 30,000 years ago. Unquestionably his is the oldest royal family on earth.

The rising sun is the emblem of various nations today, among them being the Japanese, the Persians and some of the Central American republics.


To differentiate between the rising and the setting sun, the ancients were accustomed to depict the former with rays and the latter as a plain disc or orb without rays.

After the Empire of the Sun came to its untimely end, the sun whenever shown in connection with the Motherland always appears as the setting sun.



A. Is a Maya vignette, telling of the submersion of Mu, the Lands of the West.

Deciphering and Translation

Fig. 1. The three points on the top of the glyph are Mu's symbolical numeral, therefore the writings below refer to Mu.

Fig. 2. The three-pointed crown is the Imperial crown of Mu - the Empire of the Sun.

Fig. 3. The sun without rays, therefore Mu is in the region of darkness.

Fig. 4. This symbol shows Mu submerged and in darkness, "peaks or points only appear."

Fig. 5. This is the ancient symbol for an abyss, tank or depth.

Fig. 6. These symbolize the other two Lands of the West which were carried with Mu down into the "tank of fire."
