Kergen looks very much like Rena’s boyfriend whom I met in the living room of the Harkin’s house. He had large intense eyes. I believe he was twenty six. I did not like his energy. He drove seventeen year old Rean to Los Angeles for a reason Rena was reluctant to talk about. If he had not called the Venice muscle men “fags” I would never have met Rena. When she came out of that dark doorway at 3:00 A.M. she can out as Le Princess de Nuit. If she had bit me in the neck, I would have loved it. Twenty four hours later, she gave me the second best kiss in the history of kisses.
When she came back to bed after saying goodbye to Kergen (for want of his real name) Rena woke me. She had made a tent with the covers. The look on her faces was alarming. She looked like a cat hissing. Her eyes were completely wild – and very mischevious!
“Help me!” She said. “I can’t stand him!”
I was truly afraid. Rena was possessed. If we touched our sexual play would have been on their terms. I saw this in our first kiss. In the living room Kergen was giving Rena the sign of Satan with his fingers.
“I don’t want to play, anymore Rena!” and I turned my back to her and forced myself into a deep sleep. We were distant in the morning as we packed to go to Nebraska. I did not know if I had saved her, and, whose side she was on.
In the a tower of Arginy Castle, members of a neo-Templar group that is not the Solar Temple group, drew portals on the wall so that diseased Knights Templars could come through and reveal occult secrets and the whereabouts of the vast Templar treasure that was concealed long ago. The De Rosemont family was involved in several searches for this treasure. Jacques Breyer had formed a new Rosicrucian cosmology. The Solar Temple attached itself to the Arginy Knights of the Rose Cross, and allegedly committed mass suicides and murders so members can pass into another realm, perhaps travel to a distant star. Consider the suicides by the Heaven’s Gate cult.
Sometimes Fiction masks the Truth. The Rougemont/Rosemont family -is for real! They came to own the Shroud of Turin as Knight Templars. This is my discovery. But, have I been led by a unseen hand. A seer said I got each night to the Cathedral of the Souls where I have a reserved seat at a great oval table. There is a hooded figure standing behind me.
There was never a dull moment with Rena. We were – intense! We had to be set apart! But look at Our Story that we created, that created us. We are Archetypes. Who are we?

THE TOMB OF THE ROSICRUCIAN
On the night of the 1st of March, 1800, and at a late hour, a man, wrapped in a large horseman’s cloak, and of strange and sinister appearance, entered an old deserted house in the neighbourhood of Stepney-green. He was tall, carried himself very erect, and seemed in the full vigour of early manhood; but his features had a worn and ghastly look, as if bearing the stamp of long-indulged and frightful excesses, while his dark gleaming eyes gave him an expression almost diabolical.
This person had gained the house from a garden behind it, and now stood in a large dismantled hall, from which a broad oaken staircase, with curiously-carved banisters, led to a gallery, and hence to the upper chambers of the habitation. Nothing could be more dreary than the aspect of the place. The richly moulded ceiling was festooned with spiders’ webs, and in some places had fallen in heaps upon the floor; the glories of the tapestry upon the walls were obliterated by damps; the squares and black and white marble, with which the hall was paved, were loosened, and quaked beneath the footsteps; the wide and empty fireplace yawned like the mouth of a cavern; the bolts of the closed windows were rusted in their sockets; and the heaps of dust before the outer door proved that long years had elapsed since any one had passed through it.
Taking a dark lantern from beneath his cloak, the individual in question gazed for a moment around him, and then, with a sardonic smile playing upon his features, directed his steps towards a room on the right, the door of which stood open.
This chamber, which was large and cased with oak, was wholly unfurnished, like the hall, and in an equally dilapidated condition. The only decoration remaining on its walls was the portrait of a venerable personage in the cap and gown of Henry the Eighth’s time, painted against a panel — a circumstance which had probably saved it from destruction and beneath it, fixed in another panel, a plate of brass, covered with mystical characters and symbols, and inscribed with the name Cyprianus de Rougemont, Fra. R.C. The same name likewise appeared upon a label beneath the portrait, with the date, 1550.
Pausing before the portrait, the young man threw the light of the lantern full upon it, and revealed features somewhat resembling his own in form, but of a severe and philosophic cast. In the eyes alone could be discerned the peculiar and terrible glimmer which distinguished his own glances. After regarding the portrait for some time fixedly, he thus addressed it:
“Dost hear me, old ancestor?” he cried. “I, thy descendant, Cyprian de Rougemont, call upon thee to point out where thy gold is hidden? I know that thou wert a brother of the Rosy Cross — one of the illuminati — and didst penetrate the mysteries of nature, and enter the region of light. I know also, that thou wert buried in this house with a vast treasure; but though I have made diligent search for it, and others have searched before me, thy grave has never yet been discovered! Listen to me! Methought Satan appeared to me in a dream last night, and bade me come hither, and I should find what I sought. The conditions he proposed were, that I should either give him my own soul, or win him that of Auriol Darcy. I assented. I am here. Where is thy treasure?”
After a pause, he struck the portrait with his clenched hand, exclaiming in a loud voice:
“Dost hear me, I say, old ancestor? I call on thee to give me thy treasure. Dost hear, I say?”
And he repeated the blow with greater violence.
Disturbed by the shock, the brass plate beneath the picture started from its place, and fell to the ground.
“What is this?” cried Rougemont, gazing into the aperture left by the plate. “Ha! — my invocation has been heard!”
And, snatching up the lantern, he discovered, at the bottom of a little recess, about two feet deep, a stone, with an iron ring in the centre of it. Uttering a joyful cry, he seized the ring, and drew the stone forward without difficulty, disclosing an open space beyond it.
“This, then,’ is the entrance to my ancestor’s tomb,” cried Rougemont; “there can be no doubt of it. The old Rosicrucian has kept his secret well; but the devil has helped me to wrest it from him. And now to procure the necessary implements, in case, as is not unlikely, I should experience further difficulty.”
With this, he hastily quitted the room, but returned almost immediately with a mallet, a lever, and a pitchfork; armed with which and the lantern, he crept through the aperture. This done, he found himself at the head of a stone staircase, which he descended, and came to the arched entrance of a vault. The door, which was of stout oak, was locked, but holding up the light towards it, he read the following inscription:
POST C.C.L. ANNOS PATEBO, 1550.
“In two hundred and fifty years I shall open!” cried Rougemont, “and the date 1550 — why, the exact time is arrived. Old Cyprian must have foreseen what would happen, and evidently intended to make me his heir. There was no occasion for the devil’s interference. And see, the key is in the lock. So!” And he turned it, and pushing against the door with some force, the rusty hinges gave way, and it fell inwards.
From the aperture left by the fallen door, a soft and silvery light, streamed forth, and, stepping forward, Rougemont found himself in a spacious vault, from the ceiling of which hung a
large globe of crystal, containing in its heart a little flame, which diffused a radiance gentle as that of the moon, around, This, then, was the ever-burning lamp of the Rosicrucians, and Rougemont gazed at if with astonishment. Two hundred and fifty years had elapsed since that wondrous flame had been lighted, and yet it burnt on brightly as ever. Hooped round the globe was a serpent with its tail in its mouth — an emblem of eternity — wrought in purest gold; while above it were a pair of silver wings, in allusion to the soul. Massive chains of the more costly metal, fashioned like twisted snakes, served as suspenders to the lamp.
But Rougemont’s astonishment at this marvel quickly gave way to other feelings, and he gazed around the vault with greedy eyes.
It was a septilateral chamber, about eight feet high built of stone, and supported by beautifully groined arches. The surface of the masonry was as smooth and fresh as if the chisel had only just left it.
In six of the corners were placed large chests, ornamented with ironwork of the most exquisite workmanship, and these Rougemont’s imagination pictured as filled with inexhaustible treasure; while in the seventh corner, near the door, was a beautiful little piece of monumental sculpture in white marble, representing two kneeling and hooded figures, holding a veil between them, which partly concealed the entrance to a small recess. On one of the chests opposite the monument just described stood a strangely formed bottle and a cup of antique workmanship, both incrusted with gems.
The walls were covered with circles, squares and diagrams, and in some places were ornamented with grotesque carvings. In the centre of the vault was a round altar of black marble, covered with a plate of gold, on which Rougemont read the following inscription:
Hoc universi compendium unius mihi sepulcrum feci.
“Here, then, old Cyprian lies,” he cried.
And, prompted by some irresistible impulse, he seized the altar by the upper rim, and overthrew it. The heavy mass of marble fell with a thundering crash, breaking asunder the flag beneath it. It might be the reverberation of the vaulted roof, but a deep groan seemed to reproach the young man for his sacrilege. Undeterred, however, by this warning, Rougemont placed the point of the lever between the interstices of the broken stone, and, exerting all his strength, speedily raised the fragments, and laid open the grave.
Within it, in the garb he wore in life, with his white beard streaming to his waist, lay the unconfined body of his ancestor, Cyprian de Rougemont. The corpse had evidently been carefully embalmed, and the features were unchanged by decay. Upon the breast, with the hands placed over it, lay a large book, bound in black vellum, and fastened with brazen clasps. Instantly possessing himself of this mysterious looking volume, Rougemont knelt upon the nearest chest, and opened it. But he was disappointed in his expectation. All the pages he examined were filled with cabalistic characters, which he was totally unable to decipher.
At length, however, he chanced upon One page, the import of which he comprehended, and he remained for some time absorbed in its contemplation, while an almost fiendish smile played upon his features.
“Aha!” he exclaimed, closing the volume, “I see now the cause of my extraordinary dream. My ancestor’s wondrous power was of infernal origin — the result, in fact, of a compact with the Prince of Darkness. But what care I for that? Give me wealth — no matter what source it comes from! — ha! ha!”
And seizing the lever, he broke open the chest beside him. It was filled with bars of silver. The next he visited in the same way was full of gold. The third was laden with pearls and precious stones; and the rest contained treasure to an incalculable amount. Rougemont gazed at them in transports of joy.
“At length I have my wish,” he cried. “Boundless wealth, and therefore boundless power is mine. I can riot in pleasure — riot in vengeance. As to my soul, I will run the risk of its perdition; but it shall go hard if I destroy not that of Auriol. His love of play and his passion for Edith Talbot shall be the means by which I will work. But I must not neglect another agent which is offered me. That bottle, I have learnt from yon volume, contains an infernal potion, which, without destroying life, shatters the brain, and creates maddening fancies. It will well serve my purpose; and I thank thee, Satan, for the gift.”
Several archbishops of Besancon were de Rougemonts, and many were
their direct kin. Here is the ritual of the Brotherhood that they
say existed 900 years before Jesus was born.
Each year the knights of Saint-Georges will be
assembled in Besancon, the day indicated, in the room of the
Carmelite friars which was built for this purpose. Article V – As
MISTERS of the Magistrate of the town of Besancon have habit to send
two their aldermen wraps violet of it, with the secretary, to
compliment the assembly, one will send them to receive with the
first door of the cloister of the Carmelite friars, by two knights
who will introduce them into the room, where one will prepare to
them two armchairs with the left of the governor; and their finished
compliment, the same knights renew them to the place where they will
have received them; and the following day the governor will send two
knights to thank the magistrates.
The day of the
solemnity of the festival of Saint-Georges, the archbishops and
bishops will officiate pontificalement when they judge it by the
way; for the offerings the knights will go, with the foot of the
furnace bridge, kiss the relics between the hands of the archbishop
or bishop which will pontifiera, which will be able to have sat in
an armchair. With vespers, the knight who will have to succeed by
his row of seniority as barristers president to his predecessor,
will take again, at the same place, of the aforesaid archbishop or
bishop, the stick of the order

The Sisterhood of Rougemont
Thibaut and Humbert de Rougement were Bishops of Besancon and the
ancestors of Guillaume de Vienne who co-founded the Order of Saint-
George ‘Brotherhood of Rougemont’ that was taken over by the wrong
people during the Reformation. The Rougemonts fled to England and
Canada, where as members of the Canadian Parliament, they admitted
members into the Loyal Orange Order. Bennett Rosamond was a master
of the LOL.
Was there a ‘Sisterhood of Rougemont’? Jacquotte de Rougemont is
listed as a member of the Brotherhood and she is the sister of
Thibaut who was the Archbishop of Besancon, and the Chief, or,
President of the Brotherhood of Rougemont.

Amedee de Dramelay/Tramelay was an archbishop of Besancon, and the

Dramelay married a Rougemont.
Many family members of the House of Orange were Knights of the
Brotherhood of Rougemont. After the Reformation, and the Huguenots
lost the battle of White Mountain, we lost the estates of our Rosy
ancestors. The Pope put loyal Catholics in our offices, and gave
them our land. The present religious order of Saint George, are
usurpers. One can say ‘The True Landlord’ has returned.

Rougemont Family Templars Worshipped at Fontenotte
Today I found the Templar Chapel of Fontenotte where the Rougemont
family of Knights Templar worshipped.
This Templar Order came to own the Templar Seal of Etienne de Til-
In this genealogy we see the Lords of Rougemont are also the Lords of
Til-Chatel, and Trichatel which is the same place.
Allow me to change the names.
“The First Preceptor of La Fontenotte
The fifth son of Guy II of Rougemont and Guillemette de Coublant,
Etienne de Rougemont was lord of Pichanges. In December 1265, having
recalled the donations made to the temple by Aimon IV and Guy II, he
gave to the Templars, with the agreement of his elder brother, Jean,
Lord of Rougemont, the right of pasturage on his lands of Pichanges
and Spoy. He died in 1271 and was buried before the altar in the
chapel of Fontenotte and conferring his Templar rank of Preceptor
After the death of Etienne, Jean de Til-Chatel had to confirm in 1274
the rights of the Templars over Fontenotte. In 1278 his younger
brother, Guy, who had been curate of Til-Chatel in 1242 then
archdeacon of Le Tonnerois in the church of Langres, succeeded him at
the head of the lordship of Pichanges.
In May, 1274, Jean de Rougemont, Marshal of Burgundy legally
recorded “for the repose of his soul and that of his elder brother,
Etienne de Rougemont, who lies in the cemetery of the said Temple,
and of the souls of his forebears”, granted to Henri de Dole,
Commander of the House of Fontenotte:”
I have found a Hughes/Hue de Rougemont who a “grand maître du
Temple”in two accounts, and the maître du Temple of Burgundy in
another.This Hugues appears to be related to Humbert de Villersexel
who wasthe Lord of Rougemont and Til-Chatel. Is this the Hughes that
preceeded Bernard de Tramelay/Dramelay? Did this Hugues come after
Bernard. In the Fromond/Dramelay genealogy we find a line of De La
Roches, and thus the Rougemonts are kin to another Templar Grand
Master, Amaury de La Roche.
“Bernard de Tramelay (died August 16, 1153) was the fourth Grand
Master of the Knights Templar. He was born in the castle of Tramelay
near Saint-Claude in the Jura. According to Du Cange, he succeeded a
certain Hugues as Master of the Temple, although this Hugues is
otherwise unknown. He was elected Grand Master in June of 1151, after
the abdication of Everard des Barres, who had returned to France
following the Second Crusade.et”
“Hugues de Rougemont, grand maître du Temple””and Hugues de
Rougemont, large main of the Temple”
Humbert de Rougemont owned the Shroud of Turin. Humbert is a Hue name
and is kin to at least two Templar Grandmasters. Humbert was also the
Lord of Villersexel. He married the great granddaughter Geoffrey de
Charnay a Templar Grand Master. This is to say this Knights Templar
family, and thus the Knights Templars, owned and protected the Shroud
of Turin that they may have seized at Ascalon along with a great
treasure which would account for the large number of castle owned by
this very large Templar family. Never has such a constellation of
Knights Templars gathered in one place, under one roof as they did
come Sunday in Fontenotte.
Amaury and Othon de La Roche brought Jacque de Molay into the Templar
Order, the last Grand Master. Amaury disappears from history, it
alleged he was in keeping of the Templar Treasure. Did he go to
Holland where the Roesmont live, they members of the Swan Brethren
and Masters of Janskirk church?
“The legend says that it manages to escape and disparaitre
definitively at the same time as the Treasury and the secrecies of
My search for my ancestor, Sergeant Rougemont, has led me to a
Templar family that was invisible. Sergeant was a Templar rank, a
title for a mayor of the Sungau, and a Seneschal. I have no direct
evident Sergeant Rougemont was kin to these Lords of Rougemont – as
“I have three separate pages for Rosamond families we believe are
descended from a Sergeant Rosamond, a Huguenot who left France in
1685 at the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes, and fought in the
Battle of the Boyne in Ireland in 1689. We have not yet been able to
definitively tie these three families together, but each family was
independently aware of the story of Sergeant Rosamond and claimed him
as an ancestor. We are hoping that as research continues we will find
records showing us the relationship between our families.”
(Images: Montfort Castle home to Humbert and Margaret de
June 1418: The widowed Margaret de Charny marries Humbert of
Villersexel, Count de la Roche, Lord of St.Hippolyte sur

“1208 – Pons de la Roche presents to Amadeus de Tramelay, Archbishop
of Besançon, the Shroud that his son Othon de la Roche, Latin Duke of
Athens, had sent him from Constantinople.”Aymon 2 de Rougemont was
the Seigneur of Villersexel. He married Guillemette de Ray, the
daughter of Othon 2 de la Roche.Othon 1 de la Roche (-before 1161)
had a son named Pons de la Roche the Seigneur de Ray. He first
married Marguerite Tilchatel who may be a Rougemont who came to own
Til-Chatel. Guillaume, Gui, Humbert4, Gui 2, and Thibaut 6 were
Seigneurs of Til-Chatel. Othon then married Pontia de Rougemont/de
Dramelay the daughter of Thiebaud 2 de Rougemont. They has three
children. Humbert, Thiebaud, and Sibylle de la Roche. This union
makes the Shroud the Rougemont family icon, or relic.Jon

Concerned with the bishop of LangLMBO, they drew their origin from
Audon I of Til-Châtel, wire of Garnier count de Troyes attested into
918 by its signature in an act of the duke of Burgundy Richard. This
family, which carried like armorial bearings a key out of stake, also
paid homage to the dukes of Burgundy and held a row raised among the
lords of the duchy and county of Burgundy. Its members followed one
another of wire father until the year 1299 dates to which Isabelle of

Rougemont about 1306 and Maria her Jeanne daughter whom it had had
with Guy III of Til-Châtel with Thiébaud de Rougemont wire of a first
marriage of her new husband. The seigniory passes then in this family
until the end of the 15° century time to which the last of Rougemont,
not having children yielded the seigniory to Antoine de Baissey
resulting from a family of Montsaugeonnais which immediately paid
homage to the bishop of Langres.”
I just found the Abbey Bellevaux where the Lords of Rougemont, and the Bishops of Besançon are buried. The Rougemonts were Knights Templar and owners of the Shroud of Turin as were the Lords of La Roche. Pons La Roche was the founder of Bellevaux where very possibley my Rougemont ancestors are buried. Pons is close kindred of the De Bar and Habsburg family. Why would the Habsburg keep their connection to the Knights Templar and Shroud of Turin a secret? The Habsburgs were ‘defenders of the Catholic faith’.
I am going to make a pilgrimage to this Abbey Bellevaux and own the end of my book. I am looking for backers of my expedition. Who would like to go with?
The Lords of Rougemont and Ferrette also owned Florimont (mountain of flowers) castle where modern day (1785) Knights of Ferrette gathered, and a Raja M built a house dedicated to the troubadours. (1892) Are we looking at the first pseudo-history of the Templars?
Thibaud Rougemont was a co-fpunder of the Priory Marast.
“This James (or Jacob, for these names were once interchangeable) was the son of Hans Ulrich Rosemond, born 1623, a weaver; who was a son of Hans, a weaver, born 1581; who was a son of Fred Rosemond, born 1552, a weaver, member of town council and a local captain; who was the son of another Hans whose date of birth is not known, but he too, was a weaver and became a citizen of Basle in 1534. His father was Erhart de Rougemont who bought in 1495 ¡°the house called Rebleuten-Zunft in Basle in the Freistrasse”

The Florimont castral site dominates the village (old town in the medieval sense), at the confluence of the Coeuvatte and the Vendeline. The location is an authentic military site which, according to tradition, would have already been occupied by a garrison to Gallo-Roman times.
The castle is first mentioned in a deed signed by Ulrich II of Ferrette to Blumenberg (Fisher) in 1258. His son Louis also became Lord of the place. February 9, 1309, the lordship – including the castle – is called into Oblate fief to the Bishop of Basel Otto de grandson by count Thibaut, brother of Louis de Ferrette-Florimont. The Castle has a cited Chapel in 1309 (see Alsatia munita, Bernhard Metz).
Bellevaux, Bella Vallis was founded by Pons i. rock and Etienne de Traves in 1119, he is the first daughter of theAbbey of Morimond and also was the first Cistercian Abbey in Franche-Comté.
The birth of the Abbey of Bellevaux coincides with the appearance of the line of likely from La Roche sur Ognon Lords of Lords Scey and Traves. a land area it is made with the help of the Lords of Cirey and Chambornay.
The Church was consecrated in 1143 and dedicated to our Lady.
The Abbey will depend on four barns in 1139, eight in 1178 (Cirey, Magny, Valleroy, Baslieres, Trevey, Argirey, Champoux and Braillans – the last two for a clearing nearby).
Although much lower in importance than the neighboringAbbey of Cherlieu, Bellevaux participates in the swarming of the abbeys as a result of his mother Morimond : from 1124, it contributes to the creation of theLucelle Abbey in the diocese of Basel and then to the diocese of Lausanne, to Montheron (c. 1130). In its close proximity, it creates Theuley institutions (1130), Rosières (1132) and La Charité (1133). then, the Lords of La Roche became Lords in Attica as a result of the Fourth Crusade, theAbbey of Daphni (sometimes referred to as “Laurum Abbey” in certain acts), in present Greece.
At the end of the XIIe century, the Abbey has the chance to get the very important relics: those of Pierre de Tarentaise. Former monk became Archbishop of Tarentaise (1141-1174), he traverses the Burgundy to get to the Pope’s support in its fight against the emperor when the death surprised him. Despite the wishes of the canons of Tarentaise, it is buried at Bellevaux, and reputation of holy man and miracle worker, was canonized in 1191.
Bellevaux therefore became an important centre of pilgrimage of many nobles in the area while (first among which the Lords of La Roche) and even three archbishops of Besançon (Gérard, Nicolas and Odo de Rougemont are buried in the Abbey Church. After the French Revolution, the relics are transferred to the Church of Cirey.
From thee century XIV, barns are leased and the Abbey invests in the Saltworks of Lons-le-Saunier and Salins. They are building a mansion in Besançon. Workforce down to about 20 monks (18 in 1352 during the visit of the Abbot of Morimond).
The situation is more difficult: the Abbey had six monks in 1497 and it comes to expose the relics of Pierre de Tarentaise exceptionally to attract the alms to repair the Church.
The order itself little by little: Jean Rolin, son of the Chancellor Rolin became Abbot in 1455. It is definitive from 1551 and the abbacy of Pierre D’andelot.
Fisher: the home of 1892, troubadour style whose principaleest Tower flanked by a stair turret.The lordship married the same story as that of the County of Ferrette and will become “Austrian” in 1324 following the marriage of Jeanne de Ferrette with Albert II of Habsburg. Many noble families rent places to the Austrians. The zum Stein, for example, work at the castle in 1467. In the following decades, the existence of the Chapel, dedicated to saint George, is confirmed.
The Castle, also committed in the Reinach and the Fugger, has work in 1476-1486. In 1577, a fire causes serious damage to the building that once repaired, suffered the outrages soldiers, in 1635 (thirty years war).
After the arrival of the French in the region, the seigneury was handed over to a certain family Baker until 1785, then Ferrette Knights (that have nothing to do with the advantage family of the same name). The strongly ruined castle was not rebuilt.
In its place is built by Raja M. in 1892 a pseudo-medievale home of troubadour style whose Tower main, still visible and flanked by a spiral staircase turret, could occupy the location of the primitive keep. The top of this tower, itself now greatly ruined, was equipped with originally a false crenellated parapet and fake battlements.
