About the Malek surname

Some Malek families even in Central Europe may descend from the king of Nabataia called in greek Malkhos ( Man-Lekh ) ruling between about 62 and 30 b.c.,who may be identical with the first king of Polan in Poland called Lekh. He was praeceeded by Aretás and succeeded by Obodás until 9 b.c.. The son of the latter might have been Mar-Obudu chief of markomann tribe around their capital Buahaimon in the territory of today's Bohaemia.

Lekh was descendant of Bohaimos,of who Bohaimia was named - that perhaps wants to say : Ox-Blood - ,and brother of Cech ruling according to some sources seen by me until 680 according to historicians of christian princes of Bohaemia using a counting system the beginning of which dates back to 723 b.c.,the real date of foundation of Rome in Saturnia.

The power of dakians - among whom tara-bost tribe or noble cast might have very likely come from the capital of nabataianas ,from Bóstra ( Bóst-Tara ),perhaps meaning the 5th Tara - expanded until as far as the territory of today's Czechia until the forests Herkynia and Gabréta. This fact sugggests to identify Cech with king of dakians Boirebeista ( Bowi-Rebe-Wishta meaning Vista chief of boi ) until about 43 b.c. , who might have ruled over celtic boi tribe perhaps descending from Boios son of the ancient Héraklés. Religion and habits of some of the dakians were at that time similar to those of essai sect in Iudaia / Palaistina,so it is chronologically possible he is identical with Antipás acting there mainly at hiwaro tribe,or with one of the seven brothers of the same father of him, called also Antipás , supposed. Another of them might have been Ario-Vista in Suébia.

In this case he might have founded town Boa Vista in the Holy Land near the capital city pof world-power for ever,near Hiero-Solyma ( Hiwero-Solyma ) in Parime mountains. Even generations after him ,in the days of another hiwaro chief,Héródés ( Hayawaro-Yod ) many of the personal bodyguards of kings and nobles were of galata and thrakian origin there.
