David Hughes is a genealogist with a particular interest in the biblical Davidic Dynasty and is also the author of The British Chronicles, which charts the origins of British royalty from the very earliest times. Chapter One, most of which can be read online(a) begins in the Stone Age and includes a brief history of Atlantis, the remains of which he identifies as the Azores. He claims that Atlas settled in the isle or island-continent of Atlantis while his brothers migrated onto other islands and coasts of the Atlantic. Gadir settled Spain; Ampher settled Britain; Evaemon settled France; Mneseus settled Burgundy; Autochthon settled Germany; Elasippus settled Italy, Sardinia, and Malta; Mestor remained at home in North-West Africa [Mauretania] with his tribe; Diaprepes settled Scandinavia; and Azaes settled America.
Diaprepes was the name of the youngest of the fifth pair of twins whom Plato records in Critias as the tenth king of the Atlantean confederation/alliance.
The Schoppes, based on a rather vague similarity of sound alone, have suggested that Diaprepes gave his name to the region of the River Dnieper, which flows into the Black Sea, where they claim Atlantis had been located.
Riaan Booysen provides a very different etymological interpretation of the name, proposing that it means something like “among [those who were] before everyone else”. David Hughes suggested in 2007 in The British Chronicles (Book I) that the province ruled by Diaprepes was Scandinavia.(a)
