Capturing The Beautiful Bond Woman

The character for James Bond is based upon two people, Baron von Thyssen, and Robin Ian Evelyn Stuart Le Prince La-Lanne Mirrlees, who was the Rouge Serpent. Teresa Bond is also based on two women who were fashion models. Bond saves Nina Dyer, who committed suicide in real life. The Baron seduced her when she was 17. She owned a 1962 Jaguar E-Type and two black panthers. This Jaguar was lost – and now found!


I almost included a picture of Grey Cloud in the post where Victoria Theresa Bond enters the office of the head of the College of Arms. I wondered why I had her eyes closed. Today, they are fully open, for she is Sleeping Beauty who Grimm names ‘Rosamond;. This is truly extraordinary! Am I channeling Nina? Has she been contacting me from – beyond? That I employed my fashion model muse, Lara Roozemond, to go deeper into the Labyrinth, tells me there is some hidden truth to be discovered. What if Nina was the Baron’s mistress, and she became pregnant? Ian Flemming has Tracy’s child dying. What if Nina was murdered – while she was pregnant? Barron von Thyssen had married royal women, included a Habsburg, who would not want a pretender to any throne, especially if she converted to Islam.

The Baron’s son directed Dedales ‘The Labyrinth’. There are art dealers and family founded museums. There is a bond with a Onassis. These are the people who would build a very Royal Ark. Consider our President and all the beautiful women he has captured. I have found perhaps the wealthiest family in the world to go with the Mellons and Gettys. I know Ian Fleming was aware of this family. Was he spying on them?

I titled Lara Roozemond a ‘Pre-Raphaelite Poet’   because I want her to try for grant from the Mellon Foundation. I am certain we are related – now! I am tailor-fitting a Bond Woman around Lara. The world wants to see a woman champion these beauty pageant contestants that Russia is using to overcome the world. Trump has emulated what the rich and powerful have been doing with Beauty for thousands of years.

I intuitively snipped this unflattering image of Lara. I wanted to capture Audrey Hepburn in the mirror. There is a witch in all women. This is why I love them nearly to death!

“Mirror, mirror, on the wall. Who’s the fairest of them all?”

I want my female Bond to be half mad, for what was done to her.  Note the pic of Lara and her lover in the lower right-hand corner. I love this shot! This is her inner black panthers taking control. (add smile) You can not write good poetry – unless you are mad!

Rena Easton was seventeen when we met. Her three sister’s were fashion models. One was the mistress of Robert Vesco, who founded a colony. At the time I did not know I was kin to Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor, and thus the Getty’s, Augustus John, and Ian Flemming. Did Nina see this – from on high?

The other possibility, is, Tracy Bond – was saved – and she born a baby girl! Enter…..


I will place the Rouge Dragon cote of arms on the side of the Jaguar. You have witness Intuitive, or Psychic Writing. I was a Psychic Artist when young. I did not know what I would paint. I just touched my brush to my empty canvas, and, the Movie began.

I assure you, I am not a master of the black arts, or, a Satanic worshipper. I was born with an unlimited imagination, and this why most who have known me hang weights and grappling hooks upon my creative soul. Ouch!

I leave all those who have doubted me – in our dust! For….now I can see who is in that photograph. Tis Ian and Nina……who own all the time in the world, for, they are immortals, now. Needless to say, I own Fleming’s permission to continue his still pen.  They made a promise, that their love for one another………..would never die!

P.S. I have made a spectacular discovery! I contacted Interpol in order to get the Habsburg painting returned to Austria. Six months ago I contacted a member of the Habsburg family and told them about this painting. I posted about resurrecting and establishing the Habsburg Dynasty in America – but it already exists – via the model Fiona Campbell-Walker! The Royal Fleet has led me there! My ship has come in! Is this why Ian Easton married Rena? Were any of her sisters married to any other Admirals of the Royal Navy? Just when I thought Rena was – out of the picture!

Now I see why Victoria Bond wanted to go to La Rosey! They are all there – the Royal Children of the Ark. Liz Taylor sent her children there, as did the Aga Khan. Victoria is more than the Rouge Dragon. She figured out what Count Robin and Ian Flemming figured out, that there were rush orders for Coats of Arms, that are family trees for those who know how to read them! You have to prove your bloodline to own one. The race is on. The funeral of Otto Von Habsburg, the father of Pan Europa, is a practice parade to the Ark. These Coats of Arms, are……..CODED TICKETS!

I left the Rosemondt coat of arms on Lara’s poetry page.

Rear Admiral Keith McNeil Campbell-Walter was invested as a Companion of the Order of the Bath in 1957.[2][3] The grandfather of Baroness Francesca Thyssen-Bornemisza and Jamie Campbell-Walter, he retired from the Royal Navy in 1958 and died on 24 April 1976, aged 71.[4]

Francesca von Habsburg-Lothringen (born 7 June 1958) is an art collector and the estranged wife of Karl von Habsburg, current head of the House of Habsburg-Lorraine.

That is Francesca in the front row, with veil.

Since the dawn of human history, there have been beautiful, rich women who seem to ‘have it all’. Some have created enduring ripples (Daisy Fellowes), some have chosen to look beyond their comfortable existence (Millicent Rogers). Even with the current batch of socialites, it can feel like they will linger forever (hardly a thought that fills me with joy….). Having said that, you can seem blessed but you can still be written out of history. Just look at the life, death and blackout of Nina Dyer.

Born Nina Sheila Dyer on 15 February 1930 in Sri Lanka. Her family were wealthy thanks to their tea plantation. Seeking more stimulation, Dyer moved first to London and then Paris for her modelling career.

I have offered wondered what is it about young socialite girls that they have it imprinted into their DNA that if you want to make your own money/career/identity. You become a model, well I cannot pretend to care what the current batch of wannabe supermodels. In the case of Nina Dyer, she appears to have been met with relative success, where she was hired by Pierre Balmain (she would return the favour in later years as client of his couture). Certainly she was a striking, stunning girl, who could have been a photogenic model regardless of her background.

At only 17, Dyer began an affair with Baron Von Thyssen, then the wealthiest man in Europe. To say he was bewitched by his teenage lover would be a grand understatement, even purchasing a Caribbean island for Valentines day (In which she would swim nude, shocking the press in the process). Of the many spectacular gifts, the Baron gifted his beloved with a pair of Panthers.  These creatures may have started off as an exotic token of affection, but they ended up forming part of her visual legacy.  So very lovesick was Thyssen, that he left his wife (an Austrian princess, no less) and they wed in 1954. This was not to be the fairy tale ending where the prince and the princess live in their luxurious castle forever. After a mere three months of marriage, it was all over. Dyer decided that she preferred the company of a wildly attractive actor, closer to her own age than her more sensible husband. I guess now that they were a respectable married couple, the spark of the taboo was lost and sadly her interest in her Baron. She received a divorce settlement of $2.8 million, that would be approximately £200 million today!

In 1957, Dyer tried matrimony again when she wed Prince Sadruddin Aga Khan. She  converted to Islam and took the name Shirin. On the surface they lived a charmed life, Aga Khan was appointed as the Special Envoy for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees. They relocated to Paris, where Dyer tried to regenerate her modelling career. Plus when you are so fabulously wealthy, you can picture Dyer wandering around the Place Vendome, visiting the best luxury boutiques, and generally the peaks of privilege.   It would appear to be not all was well, the couple rarely saw each other. After 5 years, they too divorced. Dyer received another astonishing settlement $1.4 million.

So far,it would appear that Dyer was on top of the world. More money that she knew what to do with, beautiful, and blessed with exceptional taste. How many woman can claim to be a top client of Cartier jewellery? Her most famous pieces included a three stranded black pearl necklace and a Panther set (a nod to her prized Panthers who brought destruction to all the hotel rooms they visited, as wild animals will do) a gift from the Aga Khan. Still appearances can be deceptive, Dyer seems to have had few friends and without children and her modelling career was dead in the water. Since there is very little known about Dyer’s inner most feelings, one can only speculate as to what was at the heart of her actions. Maybe she craved a family, maybe she was insecure and felt that with two failed marriages that she would ‘be left on the shelf’. Where feelings of depression are concerned, there is no rhyme, reason, logic or obvious  source of strife. We can never know what Dyer felt or what she wanted from her life.

Tragically She killed herself on 3rd July 1965 aged only 35, overdosing on sleeping pills. When someone dies young it is always a sad event, what is most sad about Dyer is how she seems to have been forgotten. Sources for this entry are very few and far between. Maybe she will be rediscovered and more light can be shed on this sad lady who had everything given to her, yet could not find peace and happiness.

Serena Victoria Eastman could not get to Osborne House fast enough. When she got behind the wheel of her 1961 Jaguar she named ‘Grey Cloud’ the young women who picked her up at the airport tried not to show that she had been warned. She was two shades a pale grey when they arrived at the palace built for Victoria and Albert. She tried to keep up on unsteady legs. The blood was returning to her hands now that she unloosened her grip. As they made their way into the basement she realized she had an experience better than sex. She was a virgin. All her blood veins were alive with an energy she did not know existed. She felt adventurous, and nauseous. She knew she would never be the same.


To Flower out 

Blown away by fear, constantly fighting the motion’s will

Grounded when I have you near, but you’re fading away and Im standing still

Unreachable but longing for love, flourishing into a broken flower

But I will rise above, wont lose my source of power

Endless emotions stored Inside, anxious to open up this lock

A feeling I can’t describe, afraid the floating thoughts wont stop

When will this rollercoaster stop?  Impatiently longing to feel free,

Ready for my wall to drop, and show the desire I keep within me

Overthinking, overdrinking

Tell me when will I fly free ? When will I find the strength to be? 

When will I break lose from my shadow’s misery?

Tell me how to erase this history


I will keep fighting time, keep chasing the light

I wont stop, until I shine bright,

I will bloom, I will grow

and step out of this confined shadow

An international playboy who spoke several languages, he won the hearts of debutantes including Fiona Campbell-Walker, a top model who married one of the richest men in Europe, Baron Thyssen.

After several years of ill health, his colourful life came to an end the weekend in a humble nursing home on the Western Isles.

Sir Hilary – played in the 1969 film by George Lazenby in his only outing as 007 – bore the official title of Sable Basilisk Pursuivant, a play on Mirrlees’s own title of Rouge Dragon Pursuivant.

Was “Sable Basilisk” Really “Rouge Dragon”?

A brief article in The Daily Mail on Monday, June 25, 2012, noted the passing of Count Robin Ian Evelyn Milne Stuart de la Lanne-Mirrlees, Baron of Inchdrewer and Laird of Bernera, at the age of 87 on June 23. He was involved in helping author Ian Fleming research James Bond’s adventures for Fleming’s novel On Her Majesty’s Secret Service.

In the book, Bond’s cover as genealogist Sir Hilary Bray was based on the count who was then the heraldic researcher at the College of Arms in London. Mirrlees was Rouge Dragon Pursuivant at the College of Arms from 1952 to 1962. (He was succeeded in that office by Sir Conrad Swan, later Garter Principal King of Arms.) In December 1962, he was named Richmond Herald, a position he held until 1967. (In this office he was succeeded by J.P. Brooke-Little, later Norroy and Ulster King of Arms and then Clarenceux King of Arms.)

The fictional Sir Hilary Bray bore the title of Sable Basilisk Pursuivant, a play on Mirrlees’s own title of Rouge Dragon Pursuivant.

The full story, which includes among others a photograph of the count in front of his farmhouse on the island of Great Bernera in the Outer Hebrides, can be found on-line at:

Posted by David B.

But Great Bernera was never put on the market. He also refused to sell Inchdrewer Castle in Banffshire which he bought as a ruin and partially restored in 1971.

At the behest of islanders, he withdrew a clutch of uninhabited islands off Great Bernera – including Little Bernera – from the market. But other grand properties had to go, including a £400,000  chateau in France – his mother’s former home – a flat in Paris and Ratzenegg Castle in Austria.

Many of his prized collection of antiques and paintings were also auctioned off.

Later on, the crash in prices of farmed salmon also hit his finances and he was forced to sell his seven-bedroom mansion in Holland Park, London, and his Swiss apartment.

He was highly-regarded on Great Bernera, which has a population of just 350, as a benevolent laird.

Fellow islander Rhona Macleod said in 2005: ‘He may be a prince, but to us he will always simply be Robin.

‘He’s had two castles in his life, but he must be the only prince who preferred a croft house on Bernera. That says it all.

‘He also must be the only prince who joined a local lottery syndicate – but after Lloyds he needed the money.’

Count Robin was married once, at the age of 45 to a nurse half his age, but it fizzled out after a week.

He had a long-term relationship with a German duchess, Margarethe of Württemberg, and is survived by their son Patrick de la Lanne, 50, the mayor of Delmenhort – a town of 74,000 people near Bremen in north Germany – and three adult grandchildren.

Grinnell-Milne then served as a test pilot at Royal Aircraft Establishment at Farnborough,[4] and in June 1922 took part in the third “RAF Aerial Pageant” at Hendon, where he and Flight Lieutenant P. W. S. Bulman flew two S.E. 5a’s in a demonstration of combat tactics against a DH.10 twin-engined bomber flown by Squadron Leader Roderic M. Hill.[28] On 14 April 1923 he was appointed an attaché in the Air Section of the British Delegation in Paris.[29] On 20 February 1925 he was posted to No. 19 Squadron at RAF Duxford,[30] but on 14 April was placed on half-pay,[31] and on 14 October placed on the retired list at his own request.[32] During his career Grinnell-Milne had flown 60 different aircraft types and had amassed over 2,000 flying hours.[14]

After leaving the RAF he worked as an art dealer in New York, and also as an author, publishing two autobiographical works; An Escaper’s Log (1926), detailing his time as a prisoner in Germany, and Wind in the Wires (1933) about his flying career, as well as several novels. Later he worked as a broadcaster for the BBC.[4]

Grinnell-Milne was married three times. In May 1921 he became engaged to Frances Warrington La Lanne, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Dale La Lanne of Philadelphia[37] and they were married on 17 September 1921.[2] Their son Robin Ian Evelyn Grinnell-Milne was born on 13 January 1925.[38] They divorced in 1927. He married Blanca de Undurraga y Sandiford, daughter of Don Julio de Undurraga, which also ended in divorce, and he finally married Pauline Alice Margaret Lemieux, daughter of Louis-Joseph Lemieux, on 26 May 1932.[2]

Hans Henrik Ágost Gábor, Baron Thyssen-Bornemisza de Kászon et Impérfalva (13 April 1921 – 26 April 2002), a noted industrialist and art collector, was a Dutch-born Swiss citizen with a Hungarian title, a legal resident of Monaco for tax purposes, with a declared second residency in the United Kingdom, but in actuality a long-time resident of Spain, and son of a German father and a Hungarian and English American mother (related to Daniel M. Frost and John Kerry).[1] His fifth and last wife, Carmen “Tita” Cervera, is a former Miss Spain.

Thyssen-Bornemisza was also an avid horse lover. From then on his business was limited to art. He bought more old masters, from Duccio to Francisco Goya, and fifteen years after his father’s death he bought his first piece of modern art, a watercolor painting by Emil Nolde dated from between 1931 and 1935, starting the entry of 20th century’s paintings in the collection, including Edgar Degas, Piet Mondrian, Pablo Picasso and Fernand Léger. His preference however went to German Expressionism, and he soon became a real expert in painting.

He married firstly at Lugano-Castagnola, 1 August 1946, Austrian Princess Teresa of Lippe-Weissenfeld at Vienna (21 July 1925 – 16 July 2008), whose family had been reigning princes until the fall of the German Empire in 1918 (following their divorce on 14 May 1954, she married secondly in 1960 Prince Friedrich Maximilian von Fürstenberg (1926–1969), by whom she had further issue). Their only son was:

He married secondly at Colombo, Ceylon or Paris, 23 June 1954, Anglo-Indian fashion model Nina Sheila Dyer (1930–1965), an heiress to properties in Ceylon; they had no children and divorced on 4 July 1956, pursuant to the settlement of which she received a château in France. She later married and divorced Prince Sadruddin Aga Khan and committed suicide in 1965.

She later married and divorced Prince Sadruddin Aga Khan and committed suicide in 1965.

Third marriage and issue[edit]

He married thirdly at Lugano-Castagnola on 17 September 1956 New Zealand-born British photographic and fashion model Fiona Frances Elaine Campbell-Walter (b. Takapuna, New Zealand, 25 June 1932). They divorced on 20 January 1965, and she went on to have a well-publicized relationship with Greek shipping heir Alexander Onassis, the only son of Aristotle Onassis. She was a daughter of Rear Admiral Keith McNeil Walter (later Campbell-Walter) (1904–1976) and his wife, Frances Henriette Campbell (1904 – ?), a maternal granddaughter of Sir Edward Campbell, 1st Baronet. Their children were:

Fourth marriage and issue[edit]

He married fourthly at Lugano-Castagnola, 13 December 1967, Liane Denise Shorto (b. Garça, São Paulo, 23 December 1942), a Brazilian banker’s daughter, from whom he was divorced 29 November 1984. They had one son:

  • Baron Wilfried “Alexander” August Thyssen-Bornemisza de Kászon (born Zurich 1974), unmarried and without issue.

As part of an attempt to dissolve a trust, thereby acquiring control of her third husband’s assets, Tita cast doubt on the paternity of Baron Georg Heinrich Thyssen-Bornemisza, alleging that his father was actually Count Iván Batthyány de Német-Ujvár, the husband of Thyssen’s sister, Countess Margit Batthyány. However, a settlement was reached between the parties before the baron’s death, which brought to a “peaceable” conclusion the wrangling over control of the vast Thyssen art collection, which is to remain in Spain, Hans Henrik having been the founder of the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum in Madrid. One of the paintings in the museum, Rue Saint-Honoré in the Afternoon, Effect of Rain by Camille Pissarro, belonged to a Jewish couple who gave it to the German government in exchange for an exit visa to the United Kingdom shortly after Kristallnacht in 1939.[3] By 2015, their descendants had filed a lawsuit against the museum, on the grounds that it was stolen by the Nazis.[3]

A rusting Jaguar found languishing in a Jamaican scrapyard by a British tourist once belonged to a beautiful princess who drove it around her own Caribbean island.

British Princess Nina Aga Khan was given the 1962 E-Type Jaguar Roadster by her second husband – the ‘fabulously wealthy’ Prince Sadruddin Aga Khan of Persia. 

When the marriage failed, Nina retreated to the exotic Pellew Island, taking with her the white 3.8 litre car and her beloved black panther cats which had been an elaborate present from her first husband, Baron Hans Heinrich von Thyssen.

Tragically, high society queen Nina committed suicide in 1965 and the E-Type Jaguar disappeared – presumed lost forever.

However, it is now in the process of being restored after holidaymaker Clive Edwards, 42, stumbled across it in a scrapyard while on holiday in Jamaica last year.

This was the only one ever shipped by Jaguar to France where it was collected by Nina in Paris, her British ancestry accounting for the fact it was a right-hand drive.

James Denison, from auctioneers Brightwells of Leominster, Herefordshire, which is selling the car, said: ‘This E-Type is a truly exciting find with the gripping tale of a beautiful but ill-fated princess behind it.

‘Nina Aga Khan was an extremely glamorous and high profile character who was just the sort of owner Jaguar were keen to attract.

‘It’s thanks to a remarkable stroke of fortune and the meticulous record-keeping of Jaguar that we have been made aware of her story.

    Jame’s Bond’s movie wife was Terry Bond who he rescued from a suicide attempt. I believe Terry is based upon Nina Dyer. That this suicide watch of Paris Jackson, appears – is uncanny!
