About the Erlanger surname

Erlangen in Germany might be named after Erlangga,spelled also Airlangga ,king of Bali and of parts of Yawa until about 338 BC ,corresponding to 1049 of the current aera beginning in about 1387 BC ,and to 727 of the old Britannian one beginning in about 1065 BC ..

He seems to be identical with Ayar Mango included in the genealogy of Peruvian Incas ,as both of these versions of his name might be deduced from Aayar-Mlangga ,which may be formed as a

local variant of German Arm-Lange,that is Long-Arm a title that kings of Persia ruling under the 

name Artaxerxes tended to be revered with .

Thus,Erlangga king of Bali may well be identical with Artaxerxes of Persia ruling there until about 337 BC , ancestor of Alexander of Makedonia,called by the Incas in their genealogy Kondor Roka ,apparently .

Alexander's name in Chola empire,where also his Cholon descendants and followers originate from , now living in Peru too ,was Raja Indra,son of Raja Indra,identical with Artaxerxes,son of Raja Raja . They are all included in the lineage of Persian kings beginning with Dareios .

Artaxerxes apperas to have ruled not only in Chola and in the rest of the 127 countries of the Persian Empire , but in Pagan of Burma too ,under the name Anaurahta ,which seems to be a locally interpreted code of Arta-U-Nehta(n), father of Saw Lu .

Alexander's father has namely been referred to in some other sources than the ones claiming his name was Dareios or Artexerxes,as Nectanebo,king of Aigypt ,called Nechtan by Picts in their country,who thus seems to be,despite any later statement,one and the same person,and Alexander's father . Nechtan's father was according to Picts namely a certain Dargart,whose name may also be derived from Dare-ka-Arta ,that is Dareios ,otherwise Arta(xerxes ) .who must have been ruling in Persia until about 359 BC .

The sequence of the kings thus should be like this : Dareios from 546 until 511,Xerxes until 488,Artaxerxes until 448,dareios until 430,Artaxerxes until unknown date,Dareios Artaxerxes until 359,Artaxerxes until 337 and then Alexander until 323 ,approximately .

As it is known,Alexander himself and his generals have led campaigns into Franconia ,as a result of which might have the foundation of Erlangen ,and its naming after Alexander's father or ancestor ,Artaxerxes .taken place ,in its original form as Arm-Langen .
