Summary: Following the ascension of Adam and Eve (c. 11,845 BCE), their son Seth
led a majority of the Adamic family from Mesopotamia to the lands of Egypt (AZC —
Adamic Council). It was there that Seth established twelve great cities organized
under the Matriarchal and Patriarchal priesthood of God (1:3:21-28). Generations
passed and the cities prospered to eventually become a great kingdom. The Sethian
Empire was one of the longest lasting and most peaceful empires in the history of
civilization, lasting some three thousand years following Seth’s arrival into Egypt.
According to Azrael’s Commentary, the empire’s corruption and eventual collapse (c.
8,800 BCE) was in part due to its involvements with the Sumerian Empire, established
by Seth’s brother Cain. During the latter years of the empire, separation and discrimination
between the Adaam and the Enoshahim became more and more pronounced, with many of
the Enoshahim becoming enslaved by the Adaam. Discrimination, slavery, and social
caste systems were primary factors leading to the collapse of the Sethian Empire.
The fall of the Sethian Empire can be directly tied to a young man named Ahgah Eaton.
Born of mixed Enoshahim-Adaam decent, Ahgah Eaton had witnessed the death of his
Enoshahim father at the hands of ‘pure-blood’ Sethians. Ahgah Eaton rallied support
among the lower-class of the empire and initiated a violent revolution against the
Adaam. A very intelligent, ruthless, bitter man, Ahgah Eaton laid waste to the Sethians
for nearly forty years. Many of the Adaam were killed or forced into hiding to escape
the wrath of Ahgah Eaton (AZC — Ahgah Eaton).
During the collapse of the empire, a small remnant of righteous Sethians were led
by Adami and Bashia to join with Enoch. The group eventually established the holy
city of Zion (AZC — Bashia). 
According to the author of the scriptures, several ancient structures located in
present-day Egypt, including the great pyramids and the sphinx, are remaining artifacts
from the Sethian Empire.
Four of the twelve cities of Seth are identified in Azrael’s Commentary:
Methuselah II (c. 5,402 — 4,577 BCE) was assisted by Yasher-Baal in writing a history
of the Adamic Age, which included a history of both the Sethian and Sumerian Empires.
 Approximately 3,000 years pass between what is presented in chapter five and
six of the book of Beginnings.

And going into the regions of the Nile, I established the people in a land of their
own, teaching unto them the ways of peace and joy; and the children of light did
dance and sing throughout the labors of the day, taking such joys as might lift the
heavy burdens which pressed hard upon us from every side.
And the descendants of Adam increased from generation to generation, and I did cause
that there should be built the twelve cities of Seth, and there was made to dwell
upon the world of First Man a kingdom of joy and peace.
For throughout the lands of Seth could there be found no king to rule, for the people
of the kingdom had established themselves in the priesthood of God, being both Patriarchs
and Matriarchs unto all the children of men; for in each city did the quorums preside
in holiness and joy, seeking through some greater wisdom the power which would make
rich the life of every man and woman.
