About the Piast surname

Piast royal family is believed to descend from Piast,descendant of Lech son of Pan , who lived in the VIIth century - but according to the old Roman aera begining in 723 BC , thus in fact in the Ist one BC .

With this regard Piast may be identical with Pion,whom Augustus Caesar of Rhome placed to a place called Ugrove ,which indeed may be the modern Ugra,beyond the Ural - from Polish point of view . It may be the country from which Piast,who is also stated to be member of a Koszik family , extended his rule to Eastern Europe and to other regions of Siberia,where nowadays Pian-Khasawa tribes ,including Lekhe clan ,still live among Samoyedians .

It is these places where Pian-Kshaw people in Northern America may also have come from at a certain time ,to settle among the Algwank peoples .

Pan himself,father of Chech,Lech and Rus ,may well be identical with Bea-Pani,or with his father Pauakume,son of Sikuirancha - these are Tarascan names - ,identical with Sinatruk, king of Parthia until about 69 BC . His son was Héródés,father of Antipas,father of Héródés,the "Great ".

Another one of this family may be Ariovist / Ernst ,king of Suevs / Soébs - who are the "Lechite" Swob people - probably identical with Lech, as Lekhe Samoyedians are closely related to Jaran and Nest-Chango tribes , who may be descended from Ernst ( Yaran-Nest ) .

Sikuirancha,that is Sinche Roka ,is also the ancestor of Inka rulers of Cuzco and elsewhere , and according to this Pian-Kshaw are closely related to people called Inoka in Canada . Others from his family and from that of Pion might have moved to Venezuela to found Piaroa ( Pian-Ruwa ) tribe's chiefdom there .

Cheh,ruling until about 680 according to the chronicles,may well be identical with Boirebista ( Bowi-Rebe-Wishta ) ,king of Dacia ,because Czechia is the antique Boiohaim , home of Boi people . The latter may be descended from A-Wa-ya-Ba son of E-Wash-A-Shak-Kel-Ra ,called Héraklés by Greeks ,and may be the ancestor of some of Boé-Otuke and Beothuk peoples in Nova Terra .
