While I was thumbing through the Canterbury Tales, I came across the Monk's Tale about Antiochus a pre-C.E. king who attacked Jerusalem with the intent of razing it to the ground as related in the Biblical text, Maccabees. God struck him down before he could ever strike a blow. J.K. Rowling plundered the Pardoner's Tale for her fable about the three brothers who 'defeated' death in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows so it seems more likely that she got the name Antiochus from the same source. Especially when the "Spear of Destiny" that her characters were fighting over would be the one that Hitler had taken from the Habsburgs in Vienna. It was held by Grindelwald and the re-taking of the wand by Dumbledore ended WWII much like the spear was recovered by Patton just before Hitler's suicide.
Like so many things in Harry Potter, the fan theories are better than the novels themselves. Bohemond would have been much more suitable as a character to have owned the first wand to make the bearer invincible in battle. But then he does not appear to have valued the spear and trusted to his own 'genius' rather than a gimmick so perhaps not.
