She Wears Recycled Weeds

Royal Rosamond Fashions

The Shape of Water was devoid of any fashion that anybody, but I, cares to elaborate upon. Was this deliberate? I found a striking similarity in how my friend Virginia dresses, and how Elisa was dressed. Virginia has many Princes and Princesses in her family tree. She plays that down, with a vengeance. I have to wonder if the producer came upon my blogs. Grimms gave Sleeping Beauty the name ‘Rosamond’ which is my mother’s maiden name. Virginia was in a coma for twenty-eight days, and there was a chance she would never wake up.

It’s difficult to discern the plot of “The Shape of Water” by watching the trailers.  It turns out, the movie is a love story between a sea creature and a mute janitor (Sally Hawkins).  Even more specific than a love story, it’s a fairy tale princess story at heart.  Writer/director Guillermo del Toro makes that clear from the opening words in the film, in a voice over that declares all that follows the story of the “sleeping princess”.  In fact, Hawkins is reminiscent of multiple princesses: Snow White and Ariel, to name just two.



Hambley 010

Virginia Hambley lives on the corner of Kind and Considerate Streets in Eugene Oregon, the Recycle Capitol of America. Considerate Street runs, from the University of Oregon along side Amazon Creek, to Friendly market. When I rode my bicycle to my ex-fiances house, I kept my eyes open for a FREE box that some kind person set out on the curb, usually a student. This is a mixed neighborhood. There are very common folks mingled in with students, and excentrics, like Whistling George, who had a crucified robot in his front yard, that rose above his patch of sunflowers that he planted every year.  This was George’s and God’s Creative Crop. He wore blue overalls, and nothing more.

When Virginia showed me the whale George painted for her, Gulley Jimson came to mind. I learned six months ago that this Creative Character was based on the artist, Augustus John. George died of old age a few years back. Things aren’t the same. I don’t know what happened to his big rusty coffee cans full of old nuts and bolts.

Sometimes, we who love Virginia, would be overcome with a need to take her shopping, and be subjected to four hours of mental torture. She was cruel, this way. She would set a trap for you by taking her into her bedroom to help her find something to wear. Throwing her sliding closet doors, open, the drama begins.

“Look at this, crap! What can I wear? Will you help me find something to put on?”

This is Virginian’s Weed Closet for lost and abandoned clothing that she picked up from God knows where, and there is no clothing like it, because after the Weed Weavers spinning is done, they are put to death, thrown in a big black pot – and boiled alive! Some of the weeds were my finds, they passing the Ugly Mutt Test. Whenever I spotted a FREE WEEDS box, I prayed to the gods;

“Oh please let me rescue something that is worthy of my Princess. Let is be pea green ugly. A putrid purple plaid would be great!”

When she opened the door, she saw that I had been on another mission, and, now put me through a Knight’s Test. Would my lost and found weeds past muster?

“I can already tell there is nothing here I like. Take them back where you found them!”

“But, Virginia!”

“Ah! Ah! Ah! No! No! No!”

“You haven’t even given these Curb Weeds a chance!”

Virginia was a consumer at the Eugene Saturday Public Market, the Take Pity On My Wares event that Virginia did not miss, come rain or shine. This market has a philosophy that many good writers have failed to properly define. Our alternative rag puts new reporters to the test by sending them to Dicken’s Hip Poverty Market. The rule, is, everything has to be handmade by the Cosmic Craftsperson. This is not what they are. They are Political Statement Makers that are read like tea leaves, or, a crystal ball. Virginia would approach them with a Folksy Smile. The hawkers were judged by their smile, in return, for starters. The contest was to see how soon that smiles are turned upside down.

“So, these artificial buttons are not made from real Walrus tusks, because, they are an endangered species? Why then have you led me down this Primrose Path to Political Incorrect Nowhere Land? Oh, I get it. The trick is to get me to feel sorry for Walruses, and force me to open my purple suede coin purse – and support your sorry ass. Nice try – Jack!”

Agreeing to take Virginia to a real store, meant it could not be fancy – at all! Sears worked for her for many years. If she spotted a rack of 1950 revivals on a rack next to the shiny new tires, she zeroed in as she chewed on her inner cheeks. This is where New York Fashion went to die.

“Ship these mangled boxes to Eugene. Those Peace freaks will buy anything!”

Suddenly, Virginia’s hand darts into the core of he forsaken ones, and she catches a Squealing Pink Plaid Thing, with lime green accent stripes running through it.

“What do you think?”

“Oh – wow! I love it!”

“Stop lying to me! I know you hate me right now, after two hours of Pure Torture!”

At Hour Four, we head for the check-out with three items. There is never a line because no one shops for clothing here. All of a sudden.

“I hate this Experience. Why have you subjected me to your bullshit taste patterns?”

“But, Virginia! You really don’t have anything to wear. This is your last chance!

“Oh fuck you! Just Fuck you!” And the Clothes of Pity are cast down on the discount table full of screwdrivers and pliers imprisoned in plastic no one can open.

Part Two

The Island of Lost Souls

The Saturday Market is like a visit to an Island of Lost Souls. On the edges the Cultural Oasis, lounge the Homeless Ones. They are in peace. They spot Virginia coming their way with her hand on her chin, and her forefinger on her cheek. They know she is shopping. If you are lucky, she will take you home with her, and let you pitch your tent in her backyard. She wants a sample of your Tale of Woe, before she makes her final choice.

“I thought I would camp out on the island in the middle of the Willamette. I spent most of my Crazy Check on a canoe. But, the sheriff came out in his boat, and evicted me!”

When I came for a visit, I find this tent in Virginia’s backyard, with a green canoe next to it.

“Holy shit and caboodle! Come with me Poor Waif!”

“Where’s the fire pit? Do you come out here at night and cook weenies with your house guest? Is that his canoe?”

“What are you talking about? Why are you being so cruel. I don’t know where the canoe came from. Why are you being such a pisser!”

“What’s his name? I assume he is a male.”

“How in the hell do I know. He told me, but I forgot!”

Five years earlier, I thought I had broken up with Virginia, but on my way to Friendly Market on my bike, she came alongside me on her bike.

“Where have you been? Why haven’t you stopped by?”

“We broke up last week?”

We did?…….No we didn’t! Why are you lying to me? Why are you being cruel!”

That was the last time I broke up with my fiancé. For a quarter of a century, we have this unique bond. I made it into her Weed Closet. I am a keeper – till the day I die. I passed the test. You see, when Virginia was twenty-two she got into a van with fellow students at Evergreen college to go on a field trip, to the sea. On the way back, there was a terrible accident. Virginia was pulled from under the body of a classmate, a young male. She lay in a coma for twenty-eight days. Her beloved sister, never left her side. My dear friend is head injured. We attended group together. Her head injured friends, became my friends. I am The Remember.

Virginia would call me up, and ask;

‘Did I leave my bike at your place?”

“No! Give the Beanery a call, and Sunrise Market!”

Our most successful shopping experience was at Goodwill. Here I bought several coats and backpacks at one fell swoop. Her Lost Ones hung on the back of chairs till closing time, then, found their way into the lost and found box. They might as will have written ‘Virginia’s Stuff’ on it. The coat that hung around the longest in her near empty coat closet, was this red shiny fake nogahide thing with fake brass clasps – and Red Riding Hood. Oregon rain poured off of it. When she tried to leave behind, the cashiers always caught her.

“Hey! You! Don’t leave that ugly thing in here!”

One blessed day, on her way home for the Saturday Market on her bike, she had three kittens stuffed in her shirt pockets. They were wedged in their tight, so they couldn’t fall out, or, runaway on the harrowing ride home. They were grown when we found each other. Virginia chooses shirts with big pockets, for a reason.

“What is the name of this cat?”


“And what is the name of that cat?”


“And this one?”


Over the years, Virginia would ask for the names I assigned to them, she getting a kick out of my imagination.

“This is No-neck. This is Freaknoid. And, this is No-name!”

One Day My Prince Will Come

I could be wrong, but when I first beheld a photograph of the well-dressed Lara Roozemond, I saw……….

“I’ve got ‘I believe in fairy tales’ written all over me, and it makes me crazy that no one can tell!”

When I saw the movie ‘Pan’s Labyrinth’ I beheld a young Virginia. On my way to see ‘The Shape of Water’ I knew I would see The Princess – grown up. I was prepared to be – choked up! When I saw her friend, the commercial artist, I wondered if there had been some borrowing from my blog. Virginia’s father was a commercial artist in New York City, where she was born. Virginia is of the House of Anjou on her mother’s side. She is kin to much French royalty. She has stayed in castles.

I made a little movie ‘Virginia’s Labyrinth. We follow the Path of the Rose, and come upon an ugly alien weed on the bank of the river. Virginia takes to it, THIS WEED, and ignores the beautiful rose. When I saw the scars on Elisa’s neck, it rang a bell. Only in watching our movie did I see the answer. Virginia has a trachecstomy scar on her neck. A tube was inserted – so she could breathe. For twenty-eight days my beautiful Princess, slept. Then, one day, she got down on one knee, and proposed marriage to me. Of course, the next day, she forgot she had done so. Not being able to remember, is much like not being able to speak. It takes two people – to recall. Recalling is at the core of language.

One day, soon, Lara’s Prince will come. This is why she shewed the old grey-haired man away. But, she forgot how the story…………..go!

BOMLouis_de_BourbonThe de Bourmonts are Anjou Legitimists who are in contention with the Orléanists for throne of France when, and if, the French Monarchy returns. If this happens, then all the de Bourmonts, even in America, will be line for the French Throne. The question is, are Clark and Elizabeth’s children and grandchildren being watched, looked after?

This is the real Game of Thrones, and the real ‘Pan’s Labyrinth’. Is Virginia saying;

“Viva la France”?

Here is Virginia’s illustrious kindred, Louis-Auguste-Victor, Count de Ghaisnes de Bourmont, who tried to restore the House of Bourbon, The de Bourmont cote of arms appears to contain the de Bar fish. Louis was a Marshall of France. Virginia’s mother and siblings look like Louis who is perhaps the most noble and connected person in all these Holy Blood and Grail Legends? Another old rival connects the House of Bourbon to the Priory de Sion and thus the Sinclair Legend made famous by Dan Brown in the Davinci Code.

Virginia aspires to be a clown, a Jester, a Fool. She likes to ham it up. I bought her a clown suit. I have to laugh, for there are French Legends about Fools becoming Kings.

“The last shall be first.” Jesus

To hear Virginia correct my pronunciation of the name Bourmont, was like music to my ears, as it spelled doom for the pretenders in the Gnosshead tower of babble! My beautiful hunchback has given me sanctuary from my enemies. Does the sun in the Bourmont cote of arms represent The Sun King?

In 1832 Marshal Bourmont took part in the rising of Caroline Ferdinande Louise, duchesse de Berry and on its failure fled to Portugal. He commanded the army of the absolutist monarch King Miguel during the Liberal Wars and after the victory of the constitutional party he retired to Rome. At the amnesty of 1840 he returned to France, where he died on 27 October 1846 at Freigné in Maine-et-Loire.

He served in Italy and on the staff of the Eugène de Beauharnais during the Russian campaign of 1812.

Bourbon Relationship with the Grail Bloodline

The first half of the 17th century appears to have been a pivotal point for the French Bourbon Dynasty, pivoting, perhaps, on its relationship with a certain rival bloodline, namely the Grail family known as the House of Lorraine, and the chivalric secret order vowed to protect that bloodline, the Priory of Sion.
Louis XIV, “the Sun King.” His other son, founded a collateral branch of Bourbons known as the House of Orleans. Louis XIV’s grandson, Philippe, duc d’Anjou became Philip V of Spain, who founded the Spanish House of Bourbon.

Louis-Auguste-Victor, Count de Ghaisnes de Bourmont (2 September 1773 – 27 October 1846) emigrated from France soon after the outbreak of the French Revolution. A lifelong royalist, he fought with the counter-revolutionary Army of Condé for two years, then joined the insurrection in France from three more years before going into exile. He was arrested after assisting the Georges Cadoudal conspiracy, but escaped to Portugal.

In 1807 he took advantage of an amnesty to rejoin the French army and served in several campaigns until 1814. He rose in rank to become a general of division. During this period, he was suspected of being an agent of the Comte d’Artois and passing information to France’s enemies. Though he was notoriously anti-Napoleon and many officers did not trust him, he was employed again during the Hundred Days. Immediately after the campaign began, he deserted to the Prussian army with Napoleon’s plans. King Louis XVIII of France gave him a command in the Spanish expedition of 1823.

Promoted to Marshal of France, he was put in command of the Invasion of Algiers in 1830. However, after the July Revolution, he refused to recognize King Louis-Philippe of France and was sacked. After being involved in a plot against the new government, he fled to Portugal in 1832. He led the army of Dom Miguel in the Liberal Wars, and when the liberals won, he fled to Rome. He accepted another amnesty, this time in 1840, and died in France six years later.

[edit] Early careerOn the eve of the French Revolution, Bourmont entered the Gardes Françaises of the French royal army but he emigrated in 1789. Bourmont served in Louis Joseph de Bourbon, Prince de Condé royalist army in the campaigns of 1792 and 1793. Then he served as chief of staff in the civil war in lower Anjou from 1794 to 1796. After fleeing to Switzerland in 1796, he took part in another insurrection from 1798-1800. He was arrested in 1801 because of involvement with Georges Cadoudal, but three years later he managed to escape to Portugal.

When Junot invaded Portugal in 1807, Bourmont offered him his services and was employed as chief of staff of a division. Arrested when re-entering France in 1809, he was released upon the intercession of Junot and employed in the Imperial army.

He served in Italy and on the staff of the Eugène de Beauharnais during the Russian campaign of 1812. Taken prisoner during the retreat from Moscow, he managed to escape and rejoin the French army. After the Battle of Lützen in 1813 he was promoted to general of brigade, he took part in the Battle of Leipzig and in 1814 he was promoted to general of division for defending Nogent-sur-Seine. After the fall of Napoleon, Bourmont rallied to the Bourbons.

During the Hundred Days, the government of Louis XVIII of France frantically tried to stop Napoleon’s march on Paris. Marshal Michel Ney was ordered to report to Besançon where he was to receive his orders from Bourmont. It irritated the proud Ney, Prince of Moscow, to take instructions from such a junior general, so he demanded to see the king. During his interview with Louis, Ney boasted to the king that he would bring back the ex-emperor in an iron cage. By the time Ney arrived in Besançon, he found that the royalist position was rapidly deteriorating and that Bourmont’s assignment was to spy on him. On 11 March 1815, Ney told Bourmont that he was going over to Napoleon’s camp. Shortly afterward, the Bourbon cause collapsed and Louis fled to Belgium, followed by hundreds of royalists.[1]

According to historian David Hamilton-Williams, the Comte d’Artois asked Bourmont to remain a royalist agent, so he requested to continue in command. The new Minister of War, Marshal Louis-Nicolas Davout refused to employ Bourmont, writing to Napoleon, “I cannot sit idly and watch this officer wear the uniform of this country; his treasonous statements concerning the Emperor are well known to all; the brigade and regimental commanders of the 14th Infantry Division despise him. Who would trust such a man?” Nevertheless, Étienne Maurice Gérard, leader of the IV Corps vouched for him so he retained his position.[2]

On the morning of 15 June, as the French Army of the North advanced into Belgium, the 14th Division led the IV Corps column of march. Near Florennes, Bourmont halted his division. On the pretence of scouting ahead, he and his staff, rode ahead with a squadron of lancers. After gaining a suitable distance from French lines, he sent the lancers back with a letter for Gérard. In the missive, he explained that he was deserting but promised, “They will not get any information from me which will injure the French army, composed of men I love.” He and his staff put the white Bourbon cockade on their hats and galloped for the nearest Prussian position. He immediately handed over Napoleon’s operational plans to the Prussians. Gebhard von Blucher’s chief of staff August von Gneisenau was pleased to receive this windfall. However, Blucher had no use for turncoats and called Bourmont a traitor to his face. When Gneisenau noted that Bourmont was wearing the white cockade, making them allies, Blucher screamed, “Cockade be damned! A dirty dog is always a dirty dog!”[2]

With Napoleon’s orders in their hands, the Prussians were able to take the appropriate countermeasures to gather their army. Bourmont’s defection enraged the French rank and file. Though their loyalty to Napoleon was absolute, they began to suspect treachery in their generals. Étienne Hulot, who became the acting division commander, was compelled to give a speech that pledged loyalty to Napoleon and the tricolor.[3]

[edit] Bourbon RestorationAfter the Battle of Waterloo and Napoleon’s fall, Bourmont gave evidence that led to Ney’s execution. After the Second Restoration, he was given command of the 16th infantry division in Besançon and took part in the Spanish campaign of 1823. King Charles X of France made him minister of war in 1829 and Marshal of France in 1830. He was commanding the Invasion of Algiers in 1830 when the July Revolution broke out in 1830. Bourmont refused give his allegiance to the new King Louis Philippe and was dismissed from service.

In 1832 Marshal Bourmont took part in the rising of Caroline Ferdinande Louise, duchesse de Berry and on its failure fled to Portugal. He commanded the army of the absolutist monarch King Miguel during the Liberal Wars and after the victory of the constitutional party he retired to Rome. At the amnesty of 1840 he returned to France, where he died on 27 October 1846 at Freigné in Maine-et-Loire.

The Marshal of France (French: Maréchal de France, plural Maréchaux de France) is a military distinction in contemporary France, not a military rank. It is granted to generals for exceptional achievements. It was one of the Great Officers of the Crown of France during the Ancien Régime and Bourbon Restoration and one of the Great Dignitaries of the Empire during the First French Empire (when the title was not “Marshal of France” but “Marshal of the Empire”).
A Marshal of France displays seven stars. The marshal also receives a baton, a blue cylinder with stars, formerly fleurs-de-lis during the monarchy and Eagles during the First French Empire. It has the Latin inscription: Terror belli, decus pacis, which means “Terror in war, ornament in peace”.
Six Marshals of France have been given the even more exalted rank of Marshal General of France: Biron, Lesdiguières, Turenne, Villars, Saxe, and Soult.

Princess Caroline of Naples and Sicily
“The Beauharnais family has some representation in almost every European court. My father may
have descended from a brother of Alexander Eugene’s father. Ibis General Beauharnais pronounces
the name “Eugene” in such a way as to lead one to believe that he had never learned to speak French in his
youth. He pronounces it “Oozhun,” with some accent on the first syllable.

General Beauharnais says his mother was a Benton. My father had been on friendly terms at Washington with Senator Benton of Missouri. My father was well known here by the late Judge Leander Quint and also Cap
tain M. R. Roberts of this City.”

Jessie Benton lived in France for nearly a year and was fluent in the French language. She was very close with Count de la Garde, a cousin of Eugene and Hortense Beauharnais, who left her letters from all members of the Bonaparte family, and filled her in on the latest intrigues of this family that many authors connect with the Priory de Sion. I once subscribed to the theories there was such a thing, and filed a claim in the Probate of my later sister, Christine Rosamond Benton, where I mention the Merovingians.

Jessie Benton’s daughter burned many papers and documents she inherited from her mother and father.

The Larmenius Charter’ and Virginia Hambley

Proposal 019carta1


Proposal 020crosse3


crescent-Marc_de_Beauveau-Craon_(Nancy)I talked to my fiancé two days ago about my discovery that her kindred were Grand Masters of Military and Hospitaller Order of St. Lazarus of Jerusalem and were involved in the document ‘The Larmenius Charter or Carta Transmissionis’ which some claim is a forgery. The Sinclair clan makes such a claim and asks you to look to their folks for the un-broken chain of Templar Grand Masters. Louis-Hercule Timoleon, Duc de Cosse Brissac is listed as a Grand Master with four GM of the House of Bourbon before him. Pierre de Cossé Brissac, Duke of Brissac, is listed as a GM of the Order of Lazarus that was susposed to be of the House of Bourbon, only. What is going on? That the two lists of these chivalrous orders is almost identical suggests the
‘The Larmenius Charter’ may not be a forgery, or, is based upon the Lazarus list. Then there is the Rene de Anjou connection whose court was the Mecca for the Arts.

For sure the kindred of Virginia Hambley de Bourmont are real players in an intrigue that was brought to light by the authors of ‘Holy Blood Holy Grail’ who sued Dan Brown for plagarism, his Da Vinci Code borrowing from the claim that Rene de Anjou was a Grand Master of the Priory de Sion that was employing objects of art to lead riddle-lovers to a lineage of people kin to Jesus who have been guarded by Knight Templars since their founding. I do not subscribe to this belief, but have looked at the claims as a genealogist.

Virginia said it’s time to put my book on the Sion Templar Market, and acquire some money and credibility. I told my fiancés I have chosen to give my study away for free, because, I have not yet arrived – at the truth! That may not be true anymore. Either it was by dumb-luck, or I was divinely led, to bond with a woman who appears to be ‘Of the Blood’. Virginia is kin to Adelheid Marie Beatrice Zita de Liechtenstein the great granddaughter of Empress Zita of the House of Bourbon-Palma. None of the Hambleys knew of these family ties. How about the de Bourmonts who own all those castles in France? Zita fled to America. The idea of a New Louisiana Kingdom in America is not a pipe dream. The Habsburgs ruled Mexico.

Larmenius Charter

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jump to: navigation, search

The Larmenius Charter or Carta Transmissionis (“Charter of Transmission”) is a manuscript purportedly created by Johannes Marcus Larmenius (Fr.: Jean-Marc Larmenius) in February 1324, giving in Latin a list of 22 successive Grand Masters of the Knights Templar after Jacques de Molay, ending in 1804, the name of Bernard-Raymond Fabré-Palaprat appearing last on the list (who revealed the existence of the Charter in 1804). The document is written in a supposed devised ancient Knights Templar Codex.[1] Actually in Freemason custody, the document is kept at the Mark Masons Hall in London.[1] Based on analysis of the deciphered code as well as of the circumstances of the finding of the charter, most researchers have concluded that it is a forgery.[1]

An English translation of the Larmenius Charter was published in 1830.[2]

In the document, Larmenius, then a very aged man in his 70’s, states that the Grand Mastership of the Knights Templar Order was verbally transmitted to him ten years earlier (March, 1314) by the imprisoned Jacques de Molay, the last Grand Master of the Knights Templar. Larmenius was a Palestinian-born Christian who became a member of The Order of the Temple during the waning years of the Crusades. He was later the Templar Preceptor on the island domain of Cyprus after the Templar exodus from the mainland of the Holy Land to Cyprus after the fall of Acre in 1295. In this position, Larmenius was left in charge as Templar Seneschal (second highest rank in the Order) of the large remaining “exited” Templar forces in the Mediterranean in 1305 when de Molay was tricked into coming to Paris for meetings with Philip IV of France and the Pope Clement V.

In the document, Larmenius states he has become too aged to continue with the rigorous requirements of the Office of Grand Master, and “transfers” his Grand Mastership of the Templar Order to Franciscus Theobaldus, the Prior of the Templar Priory still remaining at Alexandria, Egypt.[3] With this declarative Charter, Larmenius protects the Order for perpetuity by continuing the legitimate line of Grand Masters of the Templar Order, which continues the “Second Phase” of the Order through the “Dark Period” through to its semi-private unveiling at the Convent General of the Order at Versailles in 1705 by Philippe, Duke of Orléans, elected Grand Master of the Templar Order,[3] and later also Regent of France.


The Charter has long been suspected to be a forgery – it was suggested it was the work of a Jesuit named Father Bonani, who assisted Philippe II, Duke of Orléans in 1705 to fabricate the document,[4][5] to re-establish the ‘Societé d’Aloyau’ (“Society of the Sirloin”), who claimed to be a continuation of the Knights Templar, and also an attempt to gain recognition with the Order of Christ in Portugal. This Order was dissolved in 1792 during the French Revolution by the death of its Grand Master, the Duke Timoléon de Cossé Brissac, massacred at Versailles. An item of his furniture was bought by Brother Ledru, the son of Cossé Brissac’s physician, whereupon he discovered the Charter of Larmenius hidden inside it, and showed it to Fabré-Palaprat in 1804.[6] Peter Partner believes the document was fabricated by Ledru.[7]

The code[edit]

While the charter actually is written in some code, a number of researchers have claimed that the codex, once deciphered, appears to be a more modern, scholarly Latin, and not ecclesiastical Latin used during the period of its supposed origin.[1]

Jeanne de Laval ( 1433 , Auray – 1498 , Beaufort-en-Vallée ) is the daughter of Guy XIV de Laval and d ‘ Isabelle de Bretagne . Elle s’est mariée le 10 septembre 1454 à Angers avec René I er d’Anjou (1409-1480) . She was married on 10 September 1454 in Angers with René I of Anjou (1409-1480) .

François de Cossé-Brissac, president of the Jockey Club and grand master Emeritus of themilitary and hospital of Saint Lazarus of Jerusalem ;

The name ofSaint-Lazare is often used today to denote several different organizations claiming to originalorder of Saint Lazarus of Jerusalem. All are the continuatrices or the heirs of the historical order of the Hospitallers of Saint – Lazare. These two orders are subject to different articles:
Order of Saint Lazarus of Jerusalem : hospital order creates in Jerusalem to the XIe century. This order was to allow and provide care for lepers. The French Revolution saw the confiscation of all the property of the order. Then begins a dark period that sees the last members of the order search support in 1799 with Paul i. of Russia, with Gustav IV of Sweden, and then in 1814 by Louis XVIIIin 1808. It is under the protection of this King that some claim date the end of the order history (he in squandered latest properties during his exile).
Military and hospital of Saint-Lazare : but the order is maintained in 1830 by the Board of officers that gets the support of the first patron of the melkite Greek Patriarch order. In 1835, a grand master is elected by a general chapter which was held in France. Patriarch Maximos III will accept to resume the protection of this order in 1841. Special interests will give birth to particular persuasions in the election of masters.
TheOrder of Saints-Maurice and Lazarus is also derived from theorder of Saint Lazarus of Jerusalem. This order is placed under the protection of the House of Savoy.
Theroyal order of our Lady of Mount Carmel and Saint Lazarus of Jerusalem is based on the personal union of the order of Saint-Lazare and of theorder of our Lady of Mount Carmel.

Theorder of Notre-Dame du Mont-Carmel is a French religious order , which existed independently in 1608.
The order was created in February 1608 by Pope Paul V at the request of the King of France Henry IV. The creation of the order, intended to “the extirpation of heresy”, had just seal the reconciliation of the King of France, converted to Catholicism in 1593, and of the Holy See. The badge of the order was a gold cross decorated with a medallion of the Virgin Mary of Mount Carmel; the cross was suspended from a Ribbon of Amaranth color (red purple-pulling).
In October 1608, Henry IV decided to merge this order with that of Saint-Lazare. As such, he named the grand master of Saint-Lazare, Philibert de Nérestang, grand-master of the Mont-Carmel.
The Holy See did not recognize the new orders of Notre-Dame du Mont-Carmel and Saint-Lazare de Jerusalem meeting, because he had no doubt to intention to merge the order of Saint-Lazare in another military order[citation needed], such as theorder of Malta. The different Grand Masters of the order were recognized only as Grand Masters of the Mont-Carmel. Finally in 1668 a bubble of the papal legate in France devoted the merger of the two orders.
The order of our Lady of Mount Carmel was abolished in 1830.

Jean Paul Timoléon de Cossé-Brissac, Duke of Brissac (7th of the name), marquis de Thouarcé and Marshal of France (b. 12 October 1698 in Paris, died 1784 in Saarlouis), was a general of Louis XV. He is best known for his action at the head of the French rearguard in the battle of Minden.

Louis Hercule Timoléon de Cossé, Duke of Brissac (14 February 1734, Paris-9 September 1792, Versailles) was a French politician and peer of France. He was the second son and heir of the general Jean Paul Timoléon de Cossé Brissac.
One of the greatest men at the courts of Louis XV and Louis XVI, he was Grand Panetier of France, governor of Paris, capitaine colonel of the cent Suisses of the garde du roi, and a knight in various orders.
In 1791 he became commander in chief of the King’s Constitutional Guard. On 29 May 1792 the Assembly dissolved this corps, suspecting it of royalist and counter-revolutionary sympathies and accusing of Cosse-Brissac of encouraging this and writing a speech ordering his men to go over to the king. He was sent to prison in Orléans to await judgement by the high court before being transferred to Versailles, but the prisoners were separated from their escort and freed by a band of bandits. He was thus killed in the 9 September massacres and his body mutilated. With little spirit but much force and courage, he held off his murderers for a long time, receiving several wounds before finally being cut down by a sabre. Always distinguished for his devotion to Louis XVI, he replied to someone praising him for his conduct “I only do what I must do for my ancestors and my family”. He is mentioned in the fifth verse of Jacques Delille’s poem la Pitié and anecdotes on him are to be found in Paris, Versailles et les provinces.
Marriage and issue[edit]
Louis-Hercule de Cossé-Brissac married in 1760, to Diane-Hortense Mancini-Mazarini (1742–1808), great-great niece of cardinal Mazarin, and they had two children:
Adélaïde (1765–1820), married in 1782 with Victurnien-Jean-Baptiste de Rochechouart, duc de Mortemart
Jules Gabriel Timoléon (1771–1775)

“…Abbe Seiyes urged Napoleon to marry Josephine Beauhamais because she was a Merovingian descendant, and to adopt her two children by a previous marriage who were of this anciently royal stock.” In 1798 “on the way to Egypt, Bonaparte detoured to capture Malta and the treasure held by the Knights of Malta.”

“She has both the versatility and adaptiveness that are characteristic of the genuine American woman, and which have enabled her to make almost as many friends in foreign lands as she has throughout her own country. The Count de la Garde, a cousin of Eugene and Hortense Beauharnais, whom she knew in Paris, and who left her at his death a valuable collection of souvenirs of the Bonaparte family, said of her that she was the only American woman he had ever known. He had known others of her countrywomen, but they were but imitations of English or French women, while in her he felt the originality and individuality of another people.”

[edit] Life
Caroline was born at the Caserta Palace as the eldest child of Prince Ferdinand, heir to the throne of Naples and Sicily. Her mother was an Archduchess of Austria herself the tenth child and third daughter of Leopold II, Holy Roman Emperor and Maria Luisa of Spain. Her parents were double first cousins.
Caroline was baptised with the names of her paternal grand parents, Maria Carolina of Austria and King Ferdinand of Naples.
She spent her youth in Palermo and in Naples. Her mother died in 1801 having given birth a son the previous year with a difficult birth. She died aged 24; her father married again in 1802 to the Infanta Maria Isabella of Spain, another first cousin. The couple would have a further twelve children.
Caroline married King Louis XVIII of France’s nephew, Charles Ferdinand d’Artois on 24 April 1816 in Naples, following negotiations with the Kingdoms of Naples and Sicily[2] by the French ambassador Pierre Louis Jean Casimir de Blacas, thus becoming the duchesse de Berry otherwise known as Madame de Berry in France.
Even though it was an arranged marriage, it was a happy marriage Caroline living at the Élysée Palace in Paris which was given to her.
She became an important figure during the Bourbon Restoration after the assassination of her husband in 1820. Caroline’s son, Henri, Count of Chambord, was named the “miracle child” because he was born after his father’s death and continued the direct Bourbon line of King Louis XIV of France. (The Duke of Berry saw only one child born by Caroline, Louise).
In 1824, King Louis XVIII died and was succeeded by Caroline’s father-in-law, King Charles X.
In 1830, she was forced to flee France when Charles X was overthrown during the July Revolution. She lived in Bath and Regent Terrace, Edinburgh for a time.[3]
In 1831 she returned to her family in Naples via the Netherlands, Prussia and Austria.[3] Later, however, with the help of Emmanuel Louis Marie de Guignard, vicomte de Saint Priest, she unsuccessfully attempted to restore the Legitimist Bourbon dynasty during the reign of the Orléanist monarch, King Louis Philippe of the French (1830–1848).
Her failed rebellion in the Vendée in 1832 was followed by her arrest and imprisonment in November, 1832. She was released in June, 1833 after giving birth to a daughter and revealing her secret marriage to an Italian nobleman, Ettore Carlo Lucchesi-Palli, 8th Duke della Grazia. In 1844, she and her husband purchased the beautiful palazzo Ca’ Vendramin Calergi on the Grand Canal in Venice from the last member of the Vendramin family line. In the turmoil of the Risorgimento, she was forced to sell the palazzo to her grandson, Prince Henry, Count of Bardi, and many of its fine works of art were auctioned in Paris.[4]
She returned to Sicily, ignored by other members of the House of Bourbon, and died near Graz (Austria-Hungary) in 1870.
French novelist Alexandre Dumas, père wrote two stories about her and her plotting.

    There is reality, fantasy, and the business of illusion making. My dear frined Virginia – is the Lost Princess!

    Jeffrey Katzenberg’s WndrCo-funded mobile-first content venture came into focus Wednesday with series orders from some of Hollywood’s top creators.
    Jason Blum, Antoine Fuqua, Guillermo del Toro and Sam Raimi are all developing two-to-four hour length series for WndrCo’s platform, dubbed Quibi (short for “quick bites”). Katzeberg and CEO Meg Whitman gave a taste of the slate on stage in Los Angeles at day two of the Vanity Fair New Establishment Summit.
    Katzenberg described Blum’s project, titled “Wolves and Villagers,” as “Fatal Attraction 2.0,” while he says Fuqua is developing a modern telling of “Dog Day Afternoon” that is currently seeking two A-list actorst to take the reigns on a powerful and timely drama.
    Raimi is developing a horror anthology “50 States of Fear,” with Van Toffler’s Gunpowder & Sky, that will highlight the scariest folklore from each state in America.

    previously operating under the placeholder name “NewTV,” has raised $1 billion from investors including major studios, VC and tech firms, and the Katzenberg-led WndrCo holding company. Last month, Katzenberg and Whitman announced that the mobile-TV service, slated to launch in late 2019 or early 2020, would be priced at $8 monthly without ads and $5 per month with commercials.
