About Teia Tephi, {Legendary}

Tiea Tephi. She is said to have been a daughter of Zedekiah, King of Judah, but she is fictitious. Her descent from the kings of Judah is a 19th century fraud.

According to the colorful story, she and her sister Tamar Tephi avoided the fate of their brothers, who were killed by the King of Babylon at Riblah. The prophet Jeremiah spirited them off to Ireland via Egypt and Spain, along with the Stone of the Covenant, which became known as Lia Fail (Stone of Destiny). We are left wondering why Jeremiah was not equally helpful to the rest of the royal family.
