Sadly this equation is only really usable for perfect scenerios, but lets have a look at it anyway.Originally Posted by Sgilti Lightfoot
I would think it more likely that Doric was most likely the King long before the founding of Ascalon, perhaps the ruling head of organized tribes. Upon the founding of Ascalon he is crowned officially, such things are not uncommon and make sense as people always have some ego in them and want to leave their "noteable" marks.
The biggest problem I have, in all honesty, is the variable you choose as your base. The Irish descendancy is perhaps not the best choice as that perticular group of people experienced incredible hardship, notably the Potato Famine. This will scew numbers significantly, as many many possible off spring died and with them the possibility of more children. Though, since we want accuracy, we can dismiss this with the many Tyrian wars and what not, even though its not good to do it, but since you put so much effort in we will .
I would probably put the year of your equation to 1,200. This would factor in any posibility of a tribal kingdom prior to Ascalon and also the wording of "over a hundred years ago" on the monument.
Pluging those in:
~Females: 83995 (Assuming the current 48%/52% real world make up of male/female)
~Total: 161529 Off-spring, without factoring in abnormalities.
If we take into account that primitive Ascalon was probably like primitive Earth there would be far more children born, especially to the king, than in 6th century A.D. This would significantly increase numbers. However when we do this we must also take into account probable high mortality rates, though there are more born than lost so it is still a problem. Final thing to take into account is off shoots in the genetic pool, but those are to conditional.
Overall great work.
