Brutus was an important figure in the Roman Empire and also played a large role in Shakespeare's iconic work, Julius Caesar. After researching many different sources, I have yet to identify the height of the man who assassinated Caesar(Brutus, in case you didn't get it). If at all possible, I would like to know the answer and the sources.
You have to read between the lines: nobody (as far as I know) wrote about his height. That almost certainly means he was of average height. If he had been exceptionally tall or short, someone probably would have written about it.
Early life Edit
Porcia was born between 73 BC   and 64 BC.  She had an affectionate nature,  was addicted to philosophy and was full of an understanding courage.  Plutarch describes her as being prime of youth and beauty.  When she was still very young, her father divorced her mother for adultery.
At a young age she was married first to Marcus Calpurnius Bibulus, her father's political ally. This marriage occurred between 58 BC and 53 BC. With him she had two children, at least one of them a son.  Lucius Calpurnius Bibulus was possibly one of them  although most modern historians believe Porcia was too young to have mothered Lucius, and that he was Bibulus' son by his previous marriage, as he was old enough to fight in the battle of Philippi in 42 BC. He died in 32 BC. It is possible that a son of Porcia and Bibulus was the man who wrote the biography of Brutus. 
A few years later, Quintus Hortensius desired to make an alliance with Cato and asked for Porcia's hand in marriage.  Bibulus, who was infatuated with his wife, was unwilling to let her go. Hortensius offered to marry her and then return her to Bibulus once she had given birth to an heir. Such an arrangement was not uncommon at the time.  He argued that it was against natural law to keep a girl of Porcia's youth and beauty from producing children for his allies and impractical for her to overproduce for Bibulus.  Nonetheless Bibulus refused to divorce her and Cato disliked the idea of marrying his daughter to a man who was four times her age.  Instead, Cato divorced his wife, Porcia's stepmother Marcia, and gave her to Hortensius he remarried her after Hortensius died.
In 52 BC, Julius Caesar's Gallic Wars came to an end, but he refused to return to Rome, despite the Senate's demands that he lay down his arms. Cato personally detested Caesar, and was his greatest enemy in the Senate Cato's political faction, the Optimates (also known as the Boni), believed that Caesar should return to Rome, in order for the Optimates to strip him of his property and dignitas, and permanently exile Caesar. In 49 BC, Caesar crossed the Rubicon with his army, thus declaring war, beginning the Great Roman Civil War. Both Cato and Bibulus allied with Gnaeus Pompeius Magnus against Caesar. Though both Boni hated Pompey, he did not pose the threat to their faction that Caesar did. Bibulus commanded Pompey's navy in the Adriatic Sea.  He captured a part of Caesar's fleet, although this was generally insignificant as Caesar went on to decisively defeat Pompey at the Battle of Pharsalus. Bibulus died in 48 BC following Pompey's defeat, leaving Porcia a widow.
In 46 BC, Cato committed suicide following his defeat in the battle of Thapsus while Marcus Cato, Porcia's brother, was pardoned by Caesar and returned to Rome. 
Marriage to Brutus Edit
Brutus, Porcia's first cousin, divorced his wife Claudia and married Porcia when she was still very young.   The marriage was scandalous as Brutus did not state any reasons for divorce despite having been married to Claudia for many years. Claudia was very popular for being a woman of great virtue, and was the daughter of Appius Claudius Pulcher, who had been Brutus' ally for many years.  She was also related to Pompey by marriage through her younger sister. The divorce was not well received by some, including Brutus' mother, Servilia,  who despised her half-brother, and appears to have been jealous of Brutus' affection for Porcia.  Therefore, Servilia supported Claudia's interests against those of Porcia. 
On the other hand, Porcia was highly favoured with the followers of both Pompey and Cato, so the marriage was favoured by people such as Marcus Tullius Cicero and Titus Pomponius Atticus.  The marriage was Brutus' way of honouring his uncle. Nonetheless, it appears that Porcia deeply loved Brutus and was utterly devoted to him.  She resolved not to inquire into Brutus' secrets before she had made a trial of herself and that she would bid defiance to pain. 
Brutus, along with many other co-conspirators, murdered Caesar in 44 BC.  He promised to share the "heavy secrets" of his heart with his wife but it is unclear if he ever got the chance.   Some historians believe Porcia may have known about the plot, and may have even been involved in the conspiracy itself.  Plutarch claims that she happened upon Brutus while he was pondering over what to do about Caesar and asked him what was wrong. When he did not answer, she suspected that he distrusted her on account of her being a woman, for fear she might reveal something, however unwillingly, under torture. In order to prove herself to him, she secretly inflicted a wound upon her own thigh with a barber's knife to see if she could endure the pain. As a result of the wound, she suffered from violent pains, chills and fever.  Some believe that she endured the pain of her untreated wound for at least a day. As soon as she overcame her pain, she returned to Brutus and said:
You, my husband, though you trusted my spirit that it would not betray you, nevertheless were distrustful of my body, and your feeling was but human. But I found that my body also can keep silence. Therefore fear not, but tell me all you are concealing from me, for neither fire, nor lashes, nor goads will force me to divulge a word I was not born to that extent a woman. Hence, if you still distrust me, it is better for me to die than to live otherwise let no one think me longer the daughter of Cato or your wife.   
Brutus marveled when he saw the gash on her thigh and after hearing this he no longer hid anything from her, but felt strengthened himself and promised to relate the whole plot.  Lifting his hands above him, he is said to have prayed that he might succeed in his undertaking and thus show himself a worthy husband.  Yet Brutus never got the chance as they were interrupted and never had a moment's privacy before the conspiracy was carried out. On the day of Caesar's assassination, Porcia was extremely disturbed with anxiety and sent messengers to the Senate to check that Brutus was still alive.  She worked herself up to the point whereupon her fainting, her maids feared that she was dying. 
When Brutus and the other assassins fled Rome to Athens, it was agreed that Porcia should stay in Italy.  Porcia was overcome with grief to part from Brutus, but tried hard to conceal it. When she came across a painting depicting the parting of Hector from Andromache in the Iliad, however, she burst into tears.  Brutus' friend Acilius heard of this, and quoted Homer where Andromache speaks to Hector:
But Hector, you to me are father and are mother too, my brother, and my loving husband true. 
Brutus smiled, saying he would never say to Porcia what Hector said to Andromache in return (Ply loom and distaff and give orders to thy maids  ), saying of Porcia:
. Though the natural weakness of her body hinders her from doing what only the strength of men can perform, she has a mind as valiant and as active for the good of her country as the best of us. 
Porcia's death has been a fixation for many historians and writers. It was believed by a majority of the contemporary historians that Porcia committed suicide in 42 BC, reputedly by swallowing hot coals. Modern historians find this tale implausible, however, and one popular speculation has Porcia taking her life by burning charcoal in an unventilated room and thus succumbing to carbon monoxide poisoning. 
The exact timing of her death is also a problem. Most contemporary historians (Cassius Dio, Valerius Maximus, and Appian) claim that she killed herself after hearing that Brutus had died following the second battle of Philippi.     Nicolaus says it happened before Brutus' death, however, saying she died following the first battle of Philippi, claiming that she only thought he was dead, and that Brutus wrote a letter to their friends in Rome, blaming them for Porcia's suicide. Plutarch dismisses Nicolaus' claims of a letter stating that too much was disclosed in the letter for it to be genuine.  Plutarch also repeats the story of swallowing charcoal, but disbelieves it: 
As for Porcia, the wife of Brutus, Nicolaüs the philosopher, as well as Valerius Maximus, relates that she now desired to die, but was opposed by all her friends, who kept strict watch upon her whereupon she snatched up live coals from the fire, swallowed them, kept her mouth fast closed, and thus made away with herself. And yet there is extant a letter of Brutus to his friends in which he chides them with regard to Porcia and laments her fate, because she was neglected by them and therefore driven by illness to prefer death to life. It would seem, then, that Nicolaüs was mistaken in the time of her death, since her distemper, her love for Brutus, and the manner of her death, are also indicated in the letter, if, indeed, it is a genuine one. 
According to the political journalist and classicist Garry Wills, although Shakespeare has Porcia die by the method Plutarch repeats, but rejects, "the historical Porcia died of illness (possibly of plague) a year before the battle of Philippi"  . “but Valerius Maximus [mistakenly] wrote that she killed herself at news of Brutus’s death in that battle. This was the version of the story celebrated in works like Martial's Epigram 1.42."  The claim that Porcia's death occurred before that of Brutus is backed up by a letter sent by Cicero. This letter would have been sent in late June or early July 43 BC, before either battle of Philippi.  It further suggests that Porcia did not commit suicide, but died of some lingering illness. As Plutarch states, if the letter was genuine Brutus lamented her death and blamed their friends for not looking after her.  There is also an earlier letter from Brutus to Atticus, which hints at Porcia's illness and compliments him for taking care of her.   Cicero later wrote his surviving letter to Brutus, consoling him in his grief.  This is probably the most accurate  account of Porcia's death.
Being in his 40s, he likely won anyone between the 41st and 53rd edition of the games, barring the 45th and 50th, which were won by Chaff and Haymitch Abernathy respectively. Brutus won his Games fairly close to the time of fellow District 2 Tribute, Lyme won hers. Both Lyme and Brutus became mentors for later tributes and probably other District 2 victors, including Enobaria.
Being a Career tribute, Brutus was named seemingly perfect as it mirrors his brutality, animal-like nature, and strength, which very likely played a role in his victory. He is believed to be very skilled, as Haymitch was surprised that even he wanted to team up with Katniss after seeing her skills with a bow.
75th Hunger Games
Brutus and Enobaria are reaped for the 75th Hunger Games.
When the time came for the third Quarter Quell, the victors were the chosen tributes once again to show that even they do not have power over the Capitol. Brutus happily volunteered to partake in the 75th Hunger Games, saying he couldn't wait to get back into the arena.
Brutus in the Training Center.
During training, Brutus and Peeta got on each other's good side. He was shown training at the spear-throwing station with Peeta and Chaff. When Brutus saw Katniss' skill with a bow and arrow along with her combined strength and tactical knowledge, Brutus expressed interest in an alliance with the two to Haymitch. Katniss turned down his offer and told Haymitch that they should go into the arena without any allies.
During the interviews with each of the tributes, Brutus did not try to express any anger or feelings of betrayal, but he did reluctantly join hands with the other victors as a chain symbolizing their strength. He wore a silver chest plate, a black pair of shorts, and black boots.
During the Games
At the Cornucopia his, his pedestal was between the District 5 male and Katniss. When the gong sounds he jumped to his spoke and swam to the Cornucopia. Inside the arena, Brutus, along with Enobaria, Cashmere and Gloss approached the Cornucopia, where he had shown a unique way of dodging Katniss' arrows with his belt. However, he, along with the other Careers, were driven off by Katniss and

Finnick who got there before the Careers. While Katniss and Finnick left with Mags and Peeta, Brutus and the other Careers stayed and helped massacre the competition. In the film, he killed the District 9 female confirmed by her actress. He was able to secure a spear during the bloodbath, which he likely used to kill his victims.
Together, Brutus, Enobaria, Cashmere and Gloss followed the rebel alliance's tributes in the arena (those left being Wiress, Beetee, Mags, Finnick, the Female Morphling, Johanna, Blight, Chaff, Katniss and Peeta). Over time, the alliance began to shrink with the deaths of Mags, the Female Morphling, and Blight, and the remaining members (minus Chaff who was off on his own) traveled back to the Cornucopia to retrieve any weapons they needed that had been left behind. In the film, he was nearly killed by Finnick but was saved after Enobaria threw a knife at Finnick's arm. Gloss killed Wiress and he and Cashmere died shortly after, forcing Brutus and Enobaria to retreat from the cornucopia.
Back in the jungle, the alliance soon learned that, with the deaths of the District 10 male and the District 5 female, the Games were now down to them, Chaff, Enobaria, and Brutus. Beetee set up a plan to electrocute the water and cut off Brutus and Enobaria's resources. He sent Katniss and Johanna to run the line across the jungle, pursued by Brutus and Enobaria.
Brutus and Enobaria track Katniss and Johanna.
Johanna stops and cuts out Katniss' tracking device to make it appear that Katniss is dead, then leads Brutus and Enobaria away from her. In the chaos that followed, Enobaria stabs Beetee again but doesn't manage to kill him as Finnick chases her away. Brutus runs into Peeta who had recently met up with Chaff. In the battle that follows, Chaff is killed by Brutus. Peeta, in a fit of rage, kills Brutus seconds later (which he reveals in Mockingjay.).
Brutus placed 7th and was the last tribute to die. Shortly after his death, Katniss destroyed the arena and ended the Games, leaving six surviving tributes.
How tall was Brutus? - History
Bettmann/Getty Images Buford Pusser in 1973.
Just before dawn on August 12, 1967, McNairy County Sheriff Buford Pusser got a call about a disturbance on a side road just outside of town. Though it was early, his wife Pauline decided to accompany him to investigate. As they drove through the small Tennessee town toward the site of the disturbance, a car pulled up alongside theirs.
Suddenly the occupants opened fire on the Pusser’s car, killing Pauline and wounding Pusser. Struck by two rounds on the left side of his jaw, Pusser was left for dead. It took him 18 days and several surgeries to recover, but he finally pulled through.
As he returned home with his mangled jaw and no wife, he had only one thing on his mind – revenge. Buford Pusser vowed then that before he died, he would bring everyone who killed his wife to justice if it was the last thing he did.
Before he was a revenge-driven widower, Buford Pusser was quite a respectable man. He’d been born and raised in McNairy County, Tenn., playing basketball and football in high school, two things he excelled at due to his 6-foot 6-inch height. After high school, he joined the Marine Corps, though was eventually medically discharged due to his asthma. Then, he moved to Chicago and became a local wrestler.
His size and his strength earned him the nickname “Buford the Bull,” and his success earned him local fame. While in Chicago, Pusser met his future wife, Pauline. In December of 1959, the two married, and two years later moved back to Pusser’s childhood home.
Wikimedia Commons Bufort Pusser shortly after accepting the sheriff’s position.
Though he was just 25 at the time, he was elected chief of police and constable, a position in which he served for two years. In 1964, he was elected sheriff after the former position holder was killed in a car accident. At the time, he was just 27, making him the youngest sheriff in Tennessee’s history.
As soon as he was elected, Buford Pusser threw himself into his work. He first turned his attention to the Dixie Mafia and the State Line Mob, two gangs that operated on the line between Tennessee and Mississippi and made thousands of dollars off of the illegal sale of moonshine.
Over the course of the next three years, Pusser survived several assassination attempts. Mob bosses from the entire tri-state area were set on taking him out, as his efforts to rid the town of illegal activity had proven quite successful. By 1967, he’d been shot three times, killed several hitmen who tried to kill him, and was considered a local hero.
Then, disaster struck when Pauline was killed. Many assumed that the hit was an assassination attempt aimed at Buford Pusser and that his wife had been an unintended casualty. The guilt that Pusser felt over his wife’s death was insurmountable and drove him to cold-blooded revenge.
Not long after the shooting, he named his four assassins, as well as Kirksey McCord Nix Jr., leader of the Dixie Mafia, as the one who orchestrated the ambush. Nix was never brought to justice, but Pusser ensured others would be and cracked down harder than ever on the illicit activity in the area.
One of the hitmen, Carl “Towhead” White, ended up being gunned down by a hitman several years later. Many people believed Pusser himself hired the assassin to kill him, though the rumors were never confirmed. Several years after that, two of the other killers were found shot to death in Texas. Again, rumors swirled that Pusser killed both of them, though he was never convicted.

Nix later found himself in prison for a separate murder and was eventually sentenced to isolation for the rest of his life. Though Pusser would have considered Nix’s isolation justice served, he never got to see it happen. In 1974, he was killed in a car accident. On his way home from the local county fair, he hit an embankment and was killed after being ejected from the car.
Both Buford Pusser’s daughter and mother believed that he had been murdered, as Nix had been able to order several unrelated hits from prison. However, the claims were never investigated. It seemed, that Pusser’s long fight for justice was finally over.
Today, a memorial stands in McNairy County in the house that Buford Pusser grew up in. Several movies called Walking Tall have been made about his life that depict the man who cleaned up a town, got caught in the middle of an assassination attempt, and spent the rest of his life hell-bent on vengeance for those who had hurt his family.

The Rosenbergs and USA
The Rosenbergs were a married couple with communist sympathies who sold atomic secrets to the Soviets during the height of the Cold War. Julius Rosenberg helped exchange covert information and also recruited other spies for the Soviet Union.
He, alongside his wife Ethel (whose level of involvement, if any at all, is still contentious), was arrested in 1950. After a controversial trial, both were executed for conspiring to sell atomic secrets to Russia on June 19, 1953.
Norman and Medieval London (1066 - 15th century)
William of Normandy defeated Harold Godwinson at the battle of Hastings in 1066 and became King of England, he then became known as William the Conqueror. In order to subdue London&rsquos population, William built a number of forts, the most famous of these survives today and is the Tower of London, it was the first stone castle in England.
1097 saw the construction of the Westminster Hall by William Rufus, William the conqueror&rsquos son. The only bridge to cross the River Thames until 1739 was the London Bridge construction began in 1176 and it was completed in 1209.
In 1216, Louis of France was crowned King of England during the First Barons&rsquo War when the rebel forces pledged allegiance to him against King John. When John died, however, the rebels began to support his son Henry III and Louis withdrew from England. During these years there were several violent acts committed against London&rsquos Jewish population and ended with them being exiled from the city by Edward I in 1290.
Despite strong cultural and linguistic influences, the development of early modern English allowed the population to form a separate culture that would eventually set the English culture apart from French culture in the coming medieval period. Due to the increase of trade in the Middle Ages, London rapidly grew as due to its location on the River Thames being ideal for commerce.
The population of London grew rapidly, in 1100, there were around 15,000 people living in the city but by 1300, it had grown to roughly 80,000 inhabitants. In London, trade was administered by guilds that managed the city as they were also the ones who elected the Lord Mayor of the City of London.
Norman London was a very different place from modern London, most of the buildings were made from timber or straw and the streets were very narrow, this combination made it extremely vulnerable to fires which were deadly and if not put out could potentially destroy the whole city.
The Knights Templar, who played a part in the Crusades, actually had their base in London from 1185 up until their dissolution in 1312 after they were charged with devil-worshipping. There are a few buildings, located in Temple, which can be visited today such as Middle Temple Hall, Inner Temple Hall, Temple Church and a few dormitories. The Middle Temple and Inner Temple Inns of Court are also based here (all barristers have to belong to one of the four Inns of Court two of them are former Knights Templar buildings).
During the 14th century, London lost more than half of its population due to the Black Death, a plague that was carried by fleas living on rats that came from trading ships. Despite this, London&rsquos economy made a swift recovery and was soon operating as normal.
In 1475, a merchant guild from Central Europe known as the Hanseatic League set up its base in London known as the Steelyard it was from here that woolen cloth was shipped to the Netherlands where it was much sought after ultimately boosting London&rsquos economy.

Spartacus, (died 71 bce ), leader in the Gladiatorial War (73–71 bce ) against Rome.
How did Spartacus become famous?
Spartacus led the third and largest slave revolt against Rome. His army of nearly 100,000 overran most of southern Italy and fought its way up the entire length of the Italian Peninsula to the Alps. He then turned back south in an effort to reach Sicily but was defeated by Marcus Licinius Crassus.
How did Spartacus influence the world?
Spartacus waged a brilliant guerrilla campaign against a strong and well-organized enemy, but he could not prevail against a fully mobilized Rome. Although Crassus would ultimately defeat the Spartacus rebellion, Pompey would claim credit for the act, fueling his own rise to the apex of Roman politics.
How did Spartacus die?
The chroniclers Appian and Plutarch provide the greatest detail about Spartacus's final battle against Crassus. Spartacus is said to have tried to engage Crassus directly but was wounded and driven to one knee. Appian relates that Spartacus continued fighting but was eventually surrounded and struck down by the Romans.
A Thracian by birth, Spartacus served in the Roman army, perhaps deserted, led bandit raids, and was caught and sold as a slave. With about 70 fellow gladiators he escaped a gladiatorial training school at Capua in 73 and took refuge on Mount Vesuvius, where other runaway slaves joined the band. After defeating two Roman forces in succession, the rebels overran most of southern Italy. Ultimately their numbers grew to at least 90,000. Spartacus defeated the two consuls for the year 72 and fought his way northward toward the Alps, hoping to be able to disperse his soldiers to their homelands once they were outside Italy. When his men refused to leave Italy, he returned to Lucania and sought to cross his forces over to Sicily but was thwarted by the new Roman commander sent against him, Marcus Licinius Crassus. Hemmed in by Crassus’s eight legions, Spartacus’s army divided. The Gauls and Germans were defeated first, and Spartacus himself ultimately fell fighting in pitched battle. Pompey’s army intercepted and killed many slaves who were escaping northward, and 6,000 prisoners were crucified by Crassus along the Appian Way.
Spartacus was apparently both competent and humane, although the revolt he led inspired terror throughout Italy. Although his uprising was not an attempt at social revolution, his name has frequently been invoked by revolutionaries such as Adam Weishaupt in the late 18th century and Karl Liebknecht, Rosa Luxemburg, and the other members of the German Spartacus League of 1916–19.

The Roman Republic had been built on the principle of denying outright power to one man there were to be no more kings. Caesar’s status threatened this principle. His statue was placed among those of the former kings of Rome, he was an almost divine figure with his own cult and high priest in the shape of Mark Anthony.
Alive, Bruford was an honorable knight of Mary Stuart. His feelings toward her surpassed even that of love. When Mary Stuart betrayed Elizabeth I, Bruford stood by her side, fighting off all of Elizabeth's forces. Upon learning of her capture, he was easily willing to die for her. However, when the executioner showed him Mary Stuart's head, even though he accepted execution to save his liege, he goes into a blind rage and begins resenting humanity.
As a zombie, his hatred carried over, easily serving Dio in his quest for destruction. However, along with his hatred, his pride as a knight also carried over, deciding to fight Jonathan one on one.
After being defeated by Jonathan, the Ripple sent to him "frees his soul", allowing him to feel human again. He loses his hatred towards the world and is thankful for his chance to meet the honorable Jonathan.
The Race of Giant's are becoming my favorite Subject to discuss. What caught my interest is the reference to Japheth third son of Noah. I was puzzled about another subject regarding another article i'd read on Jaffa.
I hadn't recognized it because it was I suppose in it's English form Jaffa in The Bible Joppa. Jaffa is where it is believed Japheth first entered present day Europe an his Ancestors made that Continent their Home.
Since Gog Magog was brought up in this article along with Japheth then I'll share what could arguably be A Possibility.
Japheth dwelling in Jaffa He like his brother's and their wives were witnesses to the World before The Great Flood they had a knowledge of History Academics, Scholars, and Scientist could only Dream of seeing an with Japheths shared History with his siblings He would of taught his Ancestors about The Previous World.
It is a common practice for people to name their children after people in History. Since Genesis briefly touches on this and Biblical Book's removed from the scriptures Japheth's Family lived alongside of Giant Clans hard as it is to imagine those clans of Giant's were numerous.
According to The Bible, children of the Fallen Angel's were said to be Warrior's of Age, Old and Re-known. It's been established that Gog Magog was a Son of a Fallen Watcher Angel.
Why did Japheth name a Son after some Giant they were apart of Earth's History and most likely He wanted Them to be Great Warriors of Re-known just like Gog Magog was to him and the fact God gave the true inheritors of Earth our Ancestors the Divine Strength too eradicate The Clan of Giant's.
Most people know of or know about The Epic of Gilgamesh right? In my twenties I started feeling as though Nimrod the Mighty Hunter Before The Lord mentioned in Genesis chapter 11 in the days after The Flood, that Nimrod and Gilgamesh were one and the same.
Now I never let that feeling go so Imagine my surprise when,
I read an omitted book from The Holy Bible that indeed tells me what I suspected was true Gilgamesh an Nimrod was the same person.
The wonderful point I'm going with this discussion after, reading that Bible Text, I read another Scripture Enoch 3 The Book of Giants and Lo an behold Gilgamesh was the son of Fallen Angel Baraqiel get this Gilgamesh's father's name in Hebrew means Lightening Giver.
Gilgamesh is described as being so incredible as a Warrior that when a minor dispute broke out between Shemyaza son Oy ha (I think he might be Thor not sure) another Warrior Giant that He stepped up and defended that young Giant from Oy ha's wrath.
What's my point? Nimrod Gilgamesh when he was born was named after that Titan son of Baraqiel and with the title that Nimrod was Christened "The Mighty Hunter Before The Lord", wouldn't you say he lived up to the name Gilgamesh.
Something else before I forget.
The Greeks made an distinction in their stories between the Titan's, The Giant's, and The Cyclops.
The Titans had special abilities inherited from their Angelic Father's but, I think other than size The Giant's had No abilities which is why Brutus of Troy was able to defeat these specific Giant's later in British History.
The basic understanding so history isn't lost Japheth, Ham, Shem named their children after the Flood after those who lived in the Pre-Flood Era the children would have had some insight through Great-granddad Noah.
This was a exciting article for me to read and equally exciting to discuss but, this is where I'll end the discussion itself so Have a Happy New Year Everybody an until next time Everyone, Goodbye!
