Yesterday I discovered Virginia Hambley is related to Charlotte-Rose de Caumont de La Force who authored the fairy tale Persinette that the Grimm brothers turned into the story, Repunzel. Add to this the Grail and Knight Romances of Geoffrey de La Tour-Landry, and his relation to Rene de Anjou, and we are looking at one of the most literary Family Trees, not only of France, but of human history!

Charlotte-Rose could be the inventor of what she titles “histoires secrètes”, that has spawned a genre that launched a thousand books and several television shows. Add to this the Legend of Sleeping Beauty whom the Grimm bothers named, Rosamond – along with the countless literary works surrounding Fair Rosamond – then alas we behold the Heart and Rose of Western Culture, safe and secure in the Ivory Tower…….

Before I take you on a tour of the Towers of Beauty, let me honor two women, my surrogate mother, Wanda Paine Harkins, and Virginia Hambley, the later whom I wanted children with, but, to my dismay her mother insisted my lover get her tubes tied due to her head injury. Wanda had three sons, none who sired children. She is kin to the Patriot, Thomas Paine. Her son, Michael Harkins, was good friends of the Stackpole family.

Ralph Stackpole, gathered together a group of student-artists at the California College of Arts and Crafts to render the murals in Coit Tower. Add to this group, the muralist Garth and Thomas Hart Benton, Jiryl Zorthian, and Diego Rivera, and we have the Ivory Tower of the Muralist. Let us not leave out the story of the infamous recluse, Thomas Pynchon, who was married to my ex-wife, the artist, Mary Ann Tharaldsen, who did a portrait of her friend, Mimi Baez, who I consider one of the most beautiful woman who ever walked the earth.

Peter Stackpole was a photographer for LIFE magazine, and did a shoot of my kindred, Dame Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor. Peter took the photo of Princess Grace, whose two twin grandchildren, were christened two days ago. Prince Albert if the Comte of Ferrette and Rosemont, a source from which my Rosamond kindred possibly hail. and where lived the most famous female heir of all time, Jeanne de Ferrette-Rougemont, who is the Queen Mother of all the Habsburgs. She is in the Tower on Red Mountain, waiting for her Knight to come, and bid her to let down the long scroll that recite her Family Tree that look over an Eternal Sunset, as far as the eye can see. Behold! Is that the Golden Grail and Gate of our Royal Humanity. Look here, the Tower of Eight Beauties at Arginy!

The alchemists have fashioned the Golden Rose out of our Greatest Secrets and most Mysterious History. Rejoice the Ship of Muralist setting out for the Great Commission, sailing thru the Golden Gate. And in the Hights of Oakland stand Joaquin Miller with a spy glass, allowing all the Bohemians to take a peek at their Destiny! Look! There is John and his sister Christine! Hanzel and Gretal making their way to visit the Old Crone, and gaze into the deep shadow of her Sun Dial, the Compass of Time. Could that be the reincarnated hand of Leonardo Da Vinci on the tiller steering us towards the Rose of the World Prophecy!

“Beauty is everywhere! Rejoice! Rejoice! We have no choice!”

Above is an illustration from ‘Eliduc and Guilliadun’ by Marie of France. ‘Guildeluec Reviving Guilliadun’, may be the inspiration of Grimm’s ‘Sleeping Beauty’ who he named Rosamond. This led me to suspect that Marie of France is Joan Clifford, who was the paramour of King Henry de Anjou, Fair Rosamond.

For the last two days I have been searching the web for any connection between Marie of France, Fair Rosamond, and sleeping Beauty. In ‘Eliduc and Guilliadun’ there is a sleeping maiden who is revived by a red flower retrieved from the mouth of a weasel who found it in a deep forest. This is a resurrection from a death-like sleep, a coma, via a red flower that represents the blood of Christ.

In Marie’s ‘The Lay Of Yonec’ there is a beauty captured in a tower visited by a prince who changes into a hawk. The jealous husband puts barbs of steel around the window, that like the thorns of a rose, mortally wound the hawk-prince. Beauty follows the drops of her lovers red blood into a maze, a bower, replicating the legend of Fair Rosamond who was found in a labyrinth by a jealous queen via a red thread. Marie was a Arthurian Author who was influenced by Wace whose Roman de Rou is a Grail Legend.

Above we see Marie and Wace presenting their Grail Manuscripts to King Henry de Anjou.

“Suddenly it ran out of the chapel into the forest grass. There it picked a deep red flower with its teeth, then carried it quickly back and placed it in the mouth of the weasel the servant had killed. Instantly the animal came back to life. The wife had watched all this, and how she cried out to the servant.
“Catch it! Throw, boy! Don’t let it escape!”
He hurled his stick and hit the weasel. The blossom fell from between its teeth. Eliduc’s wife went and picked it up, then returned and placed the exquisite red flower in Guilliadun’s mouth. For a second or two nothing happened, but then the girl stirred, sighed, and opened her eyes (10).
“Good lord,” she murmured, “how long I’ve slept!”

Charlotte-Rose de Caumont de La Force or Mademoiselle de La Force (1654–1724) was a French novelist and poet. Her best-known work was her 1698 fairy tale Persinette which was adapted by the Brothers Grimm as the story Rapunzel.[1]

She was the daughter of François de Caumont de La Force (eighth son of Marshal de La Force), marquis de Castelmoron and of Marguerite de Viçose. Raised as a Protestant, she converted to Catholicism in 1686 and received a pension of 1000 écus from Louis XIV. Like other famous women writers of the 17th century, she was named a member of the Academy of the Ricovrati of Padua.
Her first novels were in the popular vein of “histoires secrètes”, short novels recounting the “secret history” of a famous person and linking the action generally to an amorous intrigue, such as Histoire secrete de Bourgogne (1694), Histoire secrète de Henri IV, roi de Castille (1695), Histoire de Marguerite de Valois, reine de Navarre (1696).
She had a long affair with the much younger Charles Briou, finally managing to marry him secretly with the king’s permission, but her family and his father intervened to have the marriage annulled.[2]’s%20cup&f=false’s+cup&source=gbs_navlinks_s

The Coit Tower murals were done under the auspices of the Public Works of Art Project, the first of the New Deal federal employment programs for artists. Ralph Stackpole and Bernard Zakheim successfully sought the commission in 1933, and supervised the muralists, who were mainly faculty and students of the California School of Fine Arts (CSFA), including Maxine Albro, Victor Arnautoff, Ray Bertrand, Rinaldo Cuneo, Mallette Harold Dean, Clifford Wight, Edith Hamlin, George Albert Harris, Otis Oldfield, Suzanne Scheuer, Hebe Daum, Jane Berlandina, Frederick E. Olmsted Jr., Jose Moya del Pino and Frede Vidar.[10][11]

After Diego Rivera‘s Man at the Crossroads mural was destroyed by its Rockefeller Center patrons for the inclusion of an image of Lenin, the Coit Tower muralists protested, picketing the tower. Sympathy for Rivera led some artists to incorporate references to the Rivera incident; in Zakheim’s “Library” panel, Stackpole is painted reading a newspaper headline announcing the destruction of Rivera’s mural.[12]

Throughout the 1930s, Stackpole worked frequently with architect Timothy Pflueger on various commissions. Beginning in 1929 when the two men first met, Stackpole was given responsibility for selecting the artists who worked to execute and augment Pflueger’s basic design scheme for the San Francisco Stock Exchange and its associated Tower, especially the Luncheon Club occupying the top floors of the Tower.[17] Stackpole said later of the experience, “the artists were in from the first. They were called in conference and assumed responsibility and personal pride in the building.”[18] At the Sansome Street tower entrance, Stackpole worked on a scaffolding with a crew of assistants to direct carve heroic figures in stone.[19] After the building was completed, Stackpole was finally successful in winning a commission for Rivera; Pflueger became convinced that Rivera would be the perfect muralist for decorating the staircase wall and ceiling of the Stock Exchange Club. This was a controversial selection considering Rivera’s leftist political beliefs in contradiction to the Stock Exchange’s capitalist foundation.[20] Into the mural, Rivera painted a figure of Stackpole’s son Peter holding a model airplane.

During his stay, Rivera and his wife Frida Kahlo lived and worked at the studio, becoming in the process lifelong friends with Stackpole and Ginette. They met tennis champion Helen Wills Moody, an avid painter-hobbyist, who soon agreed to model for Rivera at the studio.[21] Neighbor Dixon saw the attention, and the American money being given to Rivera, and with etcher Frank Van Sloun organized a short-lived protest against the Communist artist. However, both Dixon and Van Sloun quickly realized that the San Francisco art world “oligarchy” who were obviously smitten with Rivera, including Stackpole’s well-connected patrons, were the same group that they themselves would need to support their own art aspirations.[10]

For much of 1931, Stackpole partnered with other artists to decorate Pflueger’s Paramount Theatre in Oakland, an Art Deco masterpiece. A bas-relief scene of horses, waves and a central winged figure was placed over the stage’s proscenium arch, finished in gold-toned metal leaf—the work jointly designed by Stackpole and Robert Boardman Howard.[22] The design worked into Pflueger’s metal grille ceiling grid likely came unattributed from Stackpole’s sketches. Pflueger was an able project leader; Stackpole later described his involvement: “He was the boss alright, as an architect should be … He would call the plays just as a symphony conductor does … There wasn’t a lock, molding, or window that he did not inspect in the drawings and in the actual building with the utmost thoroughness and care.”[23]

With Piazzoni, Stackpole went to France again in 1922, taking his family; he enrolled his nine-year-old son in the École Alsacienne, a private school in Paris. The two artists wished to investigate the most modern trends in Europe,[9] and they encountered Diego Rivera.[10] While there, Stackpole’s marriage unraveled, and he returned to the Bay Area in 1923 with a 24-year-old French still life artist and model named Francine Mazen, nicknamed “Ginette”; his wife and son returned after the school year to take up residence across the bay in Oakland. Stackpole obtained a divorce, and then married Ginette in Mexico.

Round and round go 2,000 visitors a day at Coit Tower, marveling at the first-floor murals and walking by a double door that leads to the murals no one ever sees.

These are the unknown upstairs wall paintings that start with a panorama of Powell Street, climbing the hill as the viewer climbs the steps, and end with a bright painting of domestic life that gets its own little room to wrap around.

“The second-floor murals have been largely closed off to the public,” says Jon Golinger of Protect Coit Tower, an advocacy group. “Most San Franciscans and most visitors don’t even know they are there.”

Kelly headed the U.S. delegation at the Cannes Film Festival in April 1955. While there, she was invited to participate in a photo session at the Palace of Monaco with Prince Rainier III, the sovereign of the principality. After a series of delays and complications, she met him in Monaco. At the time of her initial meeting with him, she was dating the French actor Jean-Pierre Aumont.[22][23]

Upon returning to America, Kelly began work on The Swan, in which she coincidentally portrayed a princess, and she meanwhile began a private correspondence with Rainier.

In December 1955, Rainier came to America on a trip officially designated as a tour, although it was speculated that he was actively seeking a wife. A treaty with France in 1918 had stated that if he did not produce an heir, Monaco would revert to France; this was as a result of the Monaco Succession Crisis of 1918. At a press conference in the U.S., he was asked if he was pursuing a wife, to which he answered, “No.” Then a second question was posed: “If you were pursuing a wife, what kind would you like?” Rainier smiled and answered, “I don’t know – the best.”


The twin babies of Prince Albert II and Princess Charlene have been baptised at Monaco Cathedral.

Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella were christened in the same building where their royal ancestors were crowned, married and buried.

The principality of Monaco, which covers about 2sq km (less than one square mile), is the world’s smallest independent state after the Vatican City.

Prince Albert is the son of the late Prince Rainier III and actress Grace Kelly and has ruled Monaco since his father died in 2005.

Princess Charlene represented South Africa as a swimmer in the Olympic Games.

Les festivités du mariage d’Albert II de Monaco et de Charlene Wittstock font la joie du peuple de la principauté. The wedding festivities Albert II of Monaco and Charlene Wittstock are the joy of the people of the principality. À cette occasion, le peuple sundgauvien suivra certainement cet événement avec un petit pincement au cœur car il n’a pas oublié que le prince de Monaco porte aussi les titres de comte de Ferrette, de Belfort, de Thann et de Rosemont, ainsi que le titre de baron d’Altkirch et seigneur d’Issenheim. On this occasion, the Sundgau people will certainly follow this event with a twinge of heart because he has not forgotten that the Prince of Monaco also carries the title of Count of Ferrette, Belfort, Thann and Rosemont and the title of baron and lord of Altkirch Issenheim.

Caroline, Princess of Hanover (Caroline Louise Marguerite; born 23 January 1957), is the eldest child of Rainier III, Prince of Monaco, and the American actress Grace Kelly. She is the elder sister of Prince Albert II and Princess Stéphanie. Until the births of Princess Gabriella and Prince Jacques of Monaco in December 2014 she had been heir presumptive to the throne of Monaco since 2005, a position which she previously held from 1957 to 1958.

Caroline is married to Ernst August, Prince of Hanover (born 1954), the heir to the former throne of the Kingdom of Hanover,[4] as well as the genealogical heir male of George III of the United Kingdom.;wap2=


Her first novels were in the popular vein of “histoires secrètes”, short novels recounting the “secret history” of a famous person and linking the action generally to an amorous intrigue, such as Histoire secrete de Bourgogne (1694), Histoire secrète de Henri IV, roi de Castille (1695), Histoire de Marguerite de Valois, reine de Navarre (1696).

The oldest part of the castle is a tower, the “Tower of the Eight
Beauties”. Constructed in red bricks, its walls are more than one
metre thick. It appears circular from the outside, but inside, on the
first floor, the tower becomes octagonal. At the top are eight
openings that appear to have no functional use. It is also known as
the “Tower of Alchemy”, for the walls were once covered with
alchemical symbols. Though these symbols are almost invisible today,
but we have photographic records of them in our possession.

It was towards this tower that two of the greatest alchemists of our
age set course: Eugene Canselier and Armand Barbault, the author
of “Gold of a Thousand Mornings”. Their visit to the castle was not a
tourist outing, instead, Barbault and his wife stayed there for
several weeks in the company of the now infamous Jacques Breyer.

In 1950, a mysterious English colonel came to Arginy and asked
whether the owner, Gilbert Marie Jacques de Chambrun d’Uxeloup de
Rosemont, was willing to sell the estate for no less than one hundred
million French francs. De Rosemont flatly refused. Two years later,
he and Jacques Breyer decided to have another go at discovering the
treasure of Arginy.

On this eminence stood ROXBURY HIGH FORT, a strong earthwork planned by Henry Knox and Josiah Waters and erected by the American Army June 1775 – crowning the famous Roxbury lines of investment at THE SIEGE OF BOSTON.
Five years ago a small community of young white intellectuals and artists from the Boston-Cambridge area moved onto the hill and “took over” several empty apartment houses bordering the park. Relations with the black neighborhood immediately deteriorated, and soon guards, members of the new Fort Hill Community, could be seen patrolling the fort for the first time in almost 200 years.
Since then peace has returned, relations have improved, and there is some question on a recent summer evening why guards are still needed at Fort Hill. Or who, exactly, is being watched. It’s dark, about 9:30 PM, as one of them approaches holding a flashlight. He appears troubled, glancing nervously up and down a long row of houses now owned by the community. Inside the first house some 60 Fort Hill members are eating dinner, methodically cleaning their plates after a 12-hour work day. Suddenly the guard turns and walks briskly to an area at the rear of the houses where garbage is dumped. He shuts off his flashlight and from a large green plastic garbage bag secretly retrieves a suitcase packed the night before. Then, without looking back, he runs as fast as he can, as fast as he’s ever run, past the garages, past the basketball court, past the tool sheds, down the long dirt driveway at the rear, through the winding paved streets of the ghetto and the straight paved streets of the first factories, past the nearest subway station, where they’d be sure to check, to a second station, blocks and blocks away, more difficult to find.
As the sentry boards a subway train, safe for the moment, the interior lights reveal his panting, boyish face. He is Paul Williams, a rock author and first editor of Crawdaddy Magazine, who several months ago gave up his writing career to join the Fort Hill Community.
“I was very frightened, sure,” he admitted later at his New York hideaway. “I said I was leaving the day before and they said I wouldn’t be allowed to. They said they’d be watching me 24 hours a day. So I was super paranoid, super cautious. But that doesn’t bother me. I mean, they owed it to me, in a sense, to keep me on the hill.
“If I grow enough, someday I may come back. I care about Mel Lyman more than anyone outside of myself; someday I may be able to care about him more than me. [The people who can, have something really beautiful going.]”

Here is a story that is related to the Templars and Treasury, and this story happens in France.

So I had the choice to put this topic is heading in the “France” or the one dealing with “Knights Templar”. So I opted for the “Knights Templar”.

Arginy, is located on the territory of the municipality of Charentay (Rhone).The castle, isolated in the plains between the Saone and the Beaujolais, seems to spring from the Middle Ages. Flanked by several towers and two drawbridges, surrounded by heavy water and green, he probably saw successively pass the Templars, the Lords of the Renaissance and all the cream of modern esotericism.

At the time of the Gauls, the site was the center of a forest where it operated a salt mine. During the Roman conquest, a lieutenant of Caesar, named Arginusae, built an oppidum in this place, which subsequently took his name. The first red-brick building would last nine centuries. And on its ruins was built a castle in the Middle Ages. On the road to the castle near the Girardi?re which passes the castle, a Roman road indicates the presence of a very old past.

The castle was built in two periods: in the eleventh century – this time there is almost nothing – and in the sixteenth century. Near the tower known as the eight Beatitudes, near the moat, the research allowed to identify the old one into the ground.

In this passage, the remains of two towers belonging to the former defense system have been discovered, and the remains of a bridge of 5.80 meters long. In the eleventh century, the castle seems to have been built small, comprising only three towers and a dungeon.

The farm is located in front of the castle was built at a later time. As for the towers that rise to the drawbridge, they date from the sixteenth century.Who were the original owners of the castle? The regional archives do not remember. But in 1253, Louis de Beaujeu, the lord of the whole valley, chose to leave the family castle and moved to Arginy. His descendants will also Arginy their main residence, Guichard VI Grand in 1295, Edward 1st in 1331, Antoinnette of Beaujeu in 1343. Then some time later appears Vernet family who had some land in the town of Charentay.  They will increase their area by acquiring the firm in 1365 Arginy, then in 1388 the castle and all its dependencies.

Throughout the fifteenth century, as successive owners of the premises, Guichard II Vernet (1422), Thomas de Vernet (1430), Jacqueline de Chalon (1453), Thomas de la Bussiere (1485).

In 1533, Claude King Francis Vignolles bought the first right of justice enjoyed by Beaujeu two centuries earlier. The castle was restored and enlarged, then the farm is built.

In 1576, Antoinette Vignolles continued expansion of the field by acquiring more land. In 1883 the family became owner of Rosemont eight hundred acres of land and the castle of Arginy. Rosemont was one of the best families of the French nobility. Their stronghold, in the fourteenth century, was located in Figeac in the Lot.

Interest in Arginy regarding the Temple treasury is related to Master William de Beaujeu, a member of the family which owned the area from the thirteenth to fourteenth century. Guillaume de Beaujeu, as explained in particular Dupuy in his “History of the Templars” of 1653, was originally buried in Saint-Jean d’Acre. Then returned to France, his remains were deposited in the Temple of Paris. Did she then traveled to Arginy through Guichard of Beaujeu? This is where the mystery begins, and the treasure hunt is launched …

This treasure hunt, dates back to the late fifteenth century: Anne of France (Anne de Beaujeu), daughter of Louis XI, had carried out searches in the dungeon of the castle with the hope of finding the treasure of the Templars.

His research, according to tradition, ended tragically. One of his workers who had descended into a pit, suddenly uttered a dreadful cry that per?urent his comrades remained in the open air. The man came out of the gallery, however, about one quarter of an hour later, he walked like a robot, with his skull crushed fragments from which emerged brains.

Arrived in front of his companions, he spread his arms and finally fell. They felt along his body already cold and, finding the latter “diabolical”, refused to resume work to flee in terror.

In 1883, ownership was Arginy Chambrun of Uxeloup Rosemont. Around 1900, Count Pierre de Rosemont began excavations to turn to find the treasure of the Templars. He cleared a vertical gallery in which one of his workmen down at the end of a cable…. His descent ended in an accident just as tragic as before: the man had his foot crushed by a kind of articulated wheel ..

Several years ago, his step-daughter – wife of Jacques de Cham Uxeloup Rosemont (now deceased) – revealed to Breyer and some of her friends that her stepfather had carried out excavations in the castle 1914. However, it would suddenly received “spiritual” to stop his investigations and clog the underground from which he had begun his research.

In fact, Pierre de Rosemont have discovered a mysterious sarcophagus. Breyer, meanwhile, was confident that would happen Rosemont to a room of small dimensions, situated less than 12 meters deep, which would be based in a Baron de Camus and his wife, a trained master of the esoteric Templar initiated the Renaissance, lead author of alchemical graffiti found inside the rooms and on the crest of entry.

Also at the time of Count Pierre, two tragic incidents have also occurred at Arginy.  A stranger presented himself at the castle claiming to discover the treasure of the Templars, was found two days later on the roadside, his skull broken. A farmer who undertook clandestine excavations suffered a similar accident: a wheel of his car crushed her head.

In 1950, Jacques de Rosemont, son of Peter and rushed to turn in search of the treasure of the Templars in working with a bulldozer. In vain … That same year, a British officer, representing a British secret society, offered a large sum for the castle to the Earl of Rosemont, who refused to sell. Many were later also those who sought to acquire the domain …

For some, the treasure of the Templars should generally be considered protected by hidden forces unleashing a curse against those who attempt to penetrate the secret. Now the site is by far Arginy deemed as the most dangerous, most inviolable, the most “overlooked”. So the treasure could be buried. Thus, fans of mystery and irrationality are not afraid to wield the syllogism he can consolidate it.

In 1953, when Jacques de Rosemont was still alive, a team of occultists, mediums and investigators determined undertook with the consent and support of Rosemont, to tackle the mystery and its Arginy Templar treasure. There was Jacques Breyer, writer and esotericism, Armand Barbault, alchemist, and his wife, remarkable medium, Maxime Roquemaure, Mr. and Mrs. Michon, Beaujeu, Claude Cariven, filmmaker, Mr. Champion and many others. All these scientists indulged in occult number of experiments spiritualist invocations night, some of which were particularly spectacular. The “contact” was established, it seems, with eleven entities Templar, guarding the treasure, and not willing to indicate access!

Works occult and excavations continued for some time. Then as numerous and varied incidents came the disturbing gradually.One after the other, the visitors left Arginy. The old feudal building soon found silence.

Not for long. All that France has occultists, Hermetics, mediums, magicians and other alchemists marched to Arginy. As researchers illegal, it is virtually impossible to estimate the number how many they were, for thirty years, to enter the field, handling the pendulum or dynamite, sounding every stone, every inch of land back? .. .

In a work as strange and exciting, published in 1973 by Robert Laffont, Time out of time, Gabrielle Carmi, medium and expert in comparative religion Kabbalah, the mystery of Arginy recovery while providing new details on it it. The treasure is a chest containing a collection of parchment making, state capitals of revelations on a variety of subjects, the work of insiders Temple.

However, Arginy has still not officially at least, delivered his secret. So why the craze delivery of researchers from very different backgrounds, to this place? Then there is the document that relates Schiffmann that Jacques de Molay, exposing the unfairness of the trial concluded that there was no hope, either for himself or for the Order. He brought near him, just days before his execution, the Count of Beaujeu, his nephew, “which had long shown a decided to enter the Order, initiated him into the mysteries” and held her remarks obscure.

This document then states: “As soon as Jacques de Molay was expired, Beaujeu proceeded to carry out its commitments. He secured nine knights unfortunate remains escaped the fury of persecution and torture of terror, he mixed his blood with that of his brothers and vowed to spread the Order on the globe as he would be perfect nine architects.

He went to ask the King Philip’s permission to remove the tomb of the Grand Master Grand Master’s coffin Beaujeu his paternal uncle’s predecessor Molay and having obtained it, he went with his brothers in the tomb of the great masters and drove off the coffin that instead of ashes of his uncle the box contained money, which has been mentioned. ” He also
removed the treasures contained in the two columns and transport, all in a safe place. ”

Esotericists and treasure hunters assume that this “place of safety” could be that Arginy Castle, located on the lands of the former estate of Beaujeu. However, it should be noted qu’Arginy was at the time a dependency of the Temple: the real castle was Beaujeu and it will be destroyed by the revolutionaries.

Moreover, if one sticks to the document Schiffmann, how to design “a few days before his execution,” Jacques de Molay had been as easy to receive visitors, initiate, give specific instructions etc.. sans surveillance et en toute libert? ? unattended and freedom? Molay, besides his captors, would be surrounded by spies … How to explain the good grace with which Philip the Fair acceded to the request of the Count of Beaujeu?

No historian has not addressed the reality of the relationship between Jacques de Molay and the Count of Beaujeu.

To our knowledge, the document Schiffmann, was first published in France by John Carpenter in 1945. It could therefore influence Pierre de Rosemont, nor the different researchers in the 1900s. Fewer still Anne of France, who first, performed searches Arginy.  Finally, another contradiction, the document makes no reference to the field of Beaujeu. ” Indeed, following the previous quote, it says: “It is likely that is was in Cyprus where the Archimandrit where resided with the Patriarch of the Grand Chapter clerical Order.”

Thus, if one believes the document Schiffmann (provided it is genuine and that its content is not only symbolic) National Treasure should be in Cyprus, probably in Limassol, thesis which was to joined several other historians.

So there is a real mystery: a strong oral tradition, dating from the time of the affair of the Templars, “she Arginy designated as a cache of order, tradition, including the daughter of Louis XI, who knows what average would have known?

A cup-bearer was an officer of high rank in royal courts, whose duty it was to serve the drinks at the royal table. On account of the constant fear of plots and intrigues, a person must be regarded as thoroughly trustworthy to hold this position. He must guard against poison in the king’s cup, and was sometimes required to swallow some of the wine before serving it. His confidential relations with the king often gave him a position of great influence. The position of cup bearer is greatly valued and given to only a select few throughout history. Qualifications for the job were not held lightly but of high esteem valued for their beauty and even more for their modesty, industriousness and courage.

The cup-bearer as an honorific role, for example with the Egyptian hieroglyph for a cup-bearer, was used as late as 196 BC in the Rosetta Stone for the Kanephoros cup-bearer Areia, daughter of Diogenes[disambiguation needed]; each Ptolemaic Decree starting with the Decree of Canopus honored a cup-bearer. A much older role was the appointment of Sargon of Akkad as cup-bearer in the 23rd century BC.

  1. Reblogged this on rosamondpress and commented:

    My beautiful sixteen year old daughter came into my life in 2000. Three years later Dan Brown’s ‘The Da Vinci Code’ came out three years later. Members of Heather’s family have titled me deluded and dangerous because they were jealous of my study that just couldn’t be true. Scores of women have connected Mary Magdalene to Sleeping Beauty. To connect two mothers with the name Mary Magdalene to the Sleeping Beauty legend drives my enemies to near madness in their need to defame me. I have been smeared and threatened by members of OCCUPY, and thus, OCCUPY itself. I have not seen my daughter and grandson in four years. A dozen woman authors can say this is the ongoing oppression of the teaching of Mary Magdalene, and I have to agree. Though destroyed wherever and whenever it surface, it will just not stay – oppressed!

    Christine Friederike Auguste was an artist who had a famous salon in Berlin. She was the fifth child of Frederick William II of Prussia  whose father became involved with the Rosicrucians and Pietism that gave birth to the spiritual work of Jakob Bohme who wrote ‘Aurora’. The Grimm Brothers attended Christine’s salon and were helped by Frederick William IV of Prussia . Consider the names on the walls of the Stuttmeister tomb where a light come thru the tiffany window covered in roses. Here at rest are the ancestors of Christine Rosamond Benton, the world famous artist who signed her work by her middle mame ‘Rosamond’ the name the Grimm brothers gave their Sleeping Beauty who belonged to four Huguenot sisters who were the daughters of Mary Magdalene Hassenpflug. My mother was Rosemary Rosamond, the daughter of Mary Magdalene Rosamond. What are the odds?

    The story of Mary Magdalene has lain under the sands of Egypt for over a thousand years. In some ways, her story is like that of Sleeping Beauty or Snow White, put into a trance-like sleep. Her bridegroom, grief-stricken because of her absence, finds her and awakens her with a sacred kiss.

    Disney as Pagan Worshipper
    Perhaps the best example of Brown’s own “stretch” of logic and rationality is the contention, as evidenced by the following passage from Da Vinci Code, is the contention that Disney is a promoter and evangelist for Goddess/Magdalene worship. It should serve as a prime example why it is difficult to stretch our own conclusions about similarities as far as Brown.
    Significantly, this passage was lifted almost intact from Margaret Starbird.
    “Throughout his entire life, Disney had been hailed as “the Modern-Day Leonardo da Vinci.” Both men were generations ahead of their times, uniquely gifted artists, members of secret societies, and, most notably, avid pranksters. Like Leonardo, Walt Disney loved infusing hidden messages and symbolism in his art. For the trained symbologist, watching an early Disney movie was like being barraged by an avalanche of allusion and metaphor.
    “Most of Disney’s hidden messages dealt with religion, pagan myth, and stories of the subjugated goddess. It was no mistake that Disney retold tales like Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, and Snow White—all of which dealt with the incarceration of the sacred feminine. Nor did one need a background in symbolism to understand that Snow White—a princess who fell from grace after partaking of a poisoned apple—was a clear allusion to the downfall of Eve in the Garden of Eden. Or that Sleeping Beauty’s Princess Aurora—code-named “Rose” and hidden deep in the forest to protect her from the clutches of the evil witch— was the Grail story for children.
    Despite its corporate image, Disney still had a savvy, playful element among its employees, and their artists still amused themselves by inserting hidden symbolism in Disney products. Langdon would never forget one of his students bringing in a DVD of The Lion King and pausing the film to reveal a freeze-frame in which the word SEX was clearly visible, spelled out by floating dust particles over Simba’s head. Although Langdon suspected this was more of a cartoonist’s sophomoric prank than any kind of enlightened allusion to pagan human sexuality, he had learned not to underestimate Disney’s grasp of symbolism. The Little Mermaid was a spellbinding tapestry of spiritual symbols so specifically goddess-related that they could not be coincidence.
    When Langdon had first seen The Little Mermaid, he had actually gasped aloud when he noticed that the painting in Ariel’s underwater home was none other than seventeenth-century artist Georges de la Tour’s The Penitent Magdalene—a famous homage to the banished Mary Magdalene—fitting decor considering the movie turned out to be a ninety-minute collage of blatant symbolic references to the lost sanctity of Isis, Eve, Pisces the fish goddess, and, repeatedly, Mary Magdalene. The Little Mermaid’s name, Ariel, possessed powerful ties to the sacred feminine and, in the Book of Isaiah, was synonymous with “the Holy City besieged.” Of course, the Little Mermaid’s flowing red hair was certainly no coincidence either.

    In Jesus and the Lost Goddess Timothy Freke and Peter Gandy go on to say that “this gospel claims to be written by an unspecified ‘beloved disciple.’
    “Modern research suggests that the ‘Beloved Disciple’ he makes the narrator of the story is not John, but Mary Magdalene.  Mary is clearly identified in other Gnostic sources as ‘the beloved disciple’, the disciple that Jesus loved’, the ‘companion of Jesus’, and so on.  As scholars have noted The Gospel of the Beloved Disciple has been modified, creating obvious structural flaws, in order to turn the ‘Beloved Disciple’ Mary into the male figure of John, who was more acceptable to misogynist Literalists.”

    Magdalene can currently be seen rising out of a long, imposed sleep. Like the story of Sleeping Beauty, she and her people have been ‘drugged’ into unconsciousness for two thousand years, by an extraordinary effort to suppress ‘the other half of the story’,
