Bachofen, Johann, Jakob (L)

BachofenJohann Jakob Bachofen (1815-1887) was a Swiss antiquarian and anthropologist. He was very interested in ancient matriarchy and in that connection he proposed that Clieto was the first queen of Atlantis, which, if correct, is evidence that in remote antiquity Atlantis was a matriarchy!

His views were expressed in his 1861 book, Das Mutterrecht[1344].
