It is good to hear from you Mitch! It has been years!!
Do you believe there is not a connection to Trahans in Wales? I would love to hear your feedback, cousin.
Interesting about Trajan having no male heirs.
I then wonder if by some chance there were brothers of Trajan or uncles who had male heirs-?
Perhaps it was not his direct line, but a distant detracted heirdom or distant ancestor of a brother or uncle of the Traiani clan who came in tandem with other Roman Aristocracy to Wales during its subjugation?
Perhaps it is a name-par-excellence given to members of Trajan's entourage or an acquiescent individual who wanted to embellish the power and glory of that great name and/or its family three centuries before, who adopted Trajan's name or were incorporated into the Traiani families post-Trajan?
My post is more of "What If" supposition than fact, since no one in this present discussion could implicitly know who Trajan courted in non-cordial or behind the scenes fashion- to lend his name to a future family and their presence in Wales? It 'Begs' further discussion I hope. - Fab
