For Our Eyes Only
Victoria Bond looked down on the people in the lobby as she rode the escalator to the top floor of Lloyd’s where Clive de Rougemont had his office. His family were co-founders of Lloyd’s of London. She has never been to the headquarter of BAD. She had debriefed herself on the train ride. She felt she was prepared for what awaited her. What she was not prepared for was the oil of abeautiful woman that was hung above Clive’s desk. She went right to it, and did not see Mr. Rougemont’s outstretched hand.
“Who is this. She……looks like me!”
‘She should look like you. She is your great grandmother.”
Victoria felt a rush of blood to her head and neck. She has taken blow to her solar plexus. And now………….her third eye!
“It’s time for you to know who you are! Come here. Sit down. Here is your grandfather. Clive clicked play on his computer. “Here is your grandfather.”
Victoria could not find her center. She felt she was in a kaleidoscope.
“Gandalf the Grey is my grandfather?” she asked, like a child.
“No. Wait for it! Wait for it! THERE! There he is!”
Victoria fainted, slid off her chair, and banged her chin hard on the edge of the desk. When she came to a inhouse doctor was putting a big bandaged on her chin.
“There was no need for stitches.” said the Doctor.
“What are you doing to me. Why are you fucking with my mind? Miriam and I have done nothing!”
“That’s the point. You two are virgins. You are supposed to be dating, men. We have men lined up for you. Do you know who Miriam is? Do you have any idea what trouble she is in!”
“Please! Stop! We promise to be good girls from now on. Can I have my reality back, now? Why are you saying Saruman is my grandfather?”
“You poor dear. I am saying the actor Christopher Lee is your grandfather. Your grandmother is Henrietta Von Rosen. They had a illegitimate daughter, who is your mother.”
“I thought Teresa Bond was my mother.”
“Ah – no! James Bond is a myth. Your kin, Ian Fleming based James on the exploits of Christopher, whose mother was married Harcourt George Saint-Croix Rose, the uncle of Fleming. Christopher and Ian are step-cousins. Both men served in Intelligence. They were working Eric Von Rosen who had formed a special Nazi cult that was appealing to the Saxon race. This movement still exsists. This is why Ian created James Bond. THEY could see James doing the Irish Jig all around them. It froze them in their tracks. They have been guessing at what realty is for over forty years. Fiction is a great weapon.
“Now, for the real shocking news. Doctor. Can you please stay? Miram Starfish Christling descends from Princess Irina Alexandrovna of Russia. Her husband helped murder Rasputin.”
“Smelling salts!” Rougemont ordered.”How long have you been a fainter?”
” I am very angry at you right now!”
“Because you introduced me to Evil in the World. I did not know it existed. ”
“I have one thing to show you.” Rougemont reached into his wallet and produced a small photograph. This is your grandmother. There exists no photos of your mother, lest they fall into the hands of a coven of ancient Russian Witches. What I need to know, is, who did Miriam have contact with at the University of Oregon Library?”
“Is that my mother!” Victoria shouted!
“What are you talking about?”
“There! Right here!”
“I swear, I have looked at the image a hundred times. I only had eyes for this beautiful woman! Oh my God!”
“MIRIAM! Is she safe?”
“Yes. We have put our best men at Osborn House. We bought a present for our Russian Princess. Would you like to ride with Miriam’s horse.”
“Sure. She has begged me to teach how to ride. But, what do I get?”
“You get a – new name! How does this sound?…..
Victoria Serena Von Rosen Lee…….Daughter of Saruman the Great…..before he went over to The Dark Side?”
“Victoria Lee is good enough! Lee said with a smile.
“Oh, and you’re going on a trip to Scotland for a two day stay with the Poker Club. We should get to the bottom as to why you have fainting spells.”
I am related to Christopher Lee. Today I discovered he, and I, are kin to Ian Fleming, a fact I knew via Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor. Two famous actors in my Rosy Tree are kin to the author of the James Bond novels.
I posted this message on Cees Roozemond’s facebook.
This morning I discovered my kin Christopher Lee is related to Ian Fleming. This is a game changer. I am kin to Fleming via Liz Taylor. I need Lara Roozemond to have her agent contact me. I would like Lara to do a minute video of Victoria Lee at the riding stables. She can write the script. I want to use this video to promote my movie and series. I will send this post out tomorrow.
The Carandinis, Lee’s maternal ancestors, were given the right to bear the coat of arms of the Holy Roman Empire by the Emperor Frederick Barbarossa. Cinemareview notes: “Cardinal Consalvi was Papal Secretary of State at the time of Napoleon, and is buried at the Pantheon in Rome, next to the painter Raphael. His painting, by Lawrence, hangs in Windsor Castle.”
Lee was engaged for a time in the late-1950s to Henriette von Rosen, whom he had met at a nightclub in Stockholm. Her father, Count Fritz von Rosen, proved demanding, getting them to delay the wedding for a year, asking his London-based friends to interview Lee, hiring private detectives to investigate him, and asking Lee to provide him with references, which Lee obtained from Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., John Boulting, and Joe Jackson. Lee found the meeting of her extended family to be like something from a surrealist Luis Buñuel film, and thought they were “killing me with cream”. Finally, Lee had to have the permission of the King of Sweden to marry. Lee had met him some years before while filming Tales of Hans Anderson, where he received his blessing. However, shortly before the wedding, Lee ended the engagement. He was concerned that his financial insecurity in his chosen profession meant that she “deserved better” than being “pitched into the dishevelled world of an actor”. She understood, and they called the wedding off.
Lee was introduced to Danish painter and former model Birgit “Gitte” Krøncke by a Danish friend in 1960. They were engaged soon after, and married on 17 March 1961. They had a daughter, Christina Erika Carandini Lee (b. 1963), Lee was also the uncle of the British actress Dame Harriet Walter. Both Lee and his daughter Christina provided spoken vocals on Rhapsody of Fire‘s album From Chaos to Eternity.

Henriette Ewa Agnes Billsten (von Rosen)
|Also Known As:||“Nenne”|
|Birthplace:||Stockholm, Stockholm, Stockholm County, Sweden|
|Death:||March 12, 2016 (83)
Universitetssjukhuset Lund, Lund, Lund, Skåne County, Sweden
|Immediate Family:||Daughter of Fritz Woldemar Fredrik Carl-Gustaf Bloomfield Ridgeway Eugéne von Rosen and Comtesse Vivika Fredrika Louise von Rosen
Wife of Jan Thure Hjalmar Billsten
Mother of Private User and Private
Sister of Otto Clarence von Rosen; Carl Clarence Reinhold von Rosen and Agneta Gräfin von Rosen
Henriette Auguste Theresia Wilhelmine von Rosen (born von Wendrich) was born on month day 1823, at birth place, to August Friedrich Wilhelm von Wendrich a. Mettapäh and Henriette Amalie von Wendrich (born von Patkul).
August was born circa 1778.
Henriette was born on April 29 1791, in Ämari (Habbinem), Keila kihelkond, Harjumaa, Eesti.
Henriette had 4 siblings: Georg Friedrich Wilhelm von Wendrich and 3 other siblings.
Alexander was born on September 13 1809, in Lückholm.
They had 4 children: Friedrich August Otto von Rosen and 3 other children.
She was buried at burial place.
Von Rosen became brother-in-law to Hermann Göring when his wife’s sister, Carin von Kantzow, married Göring. The pair became acquainted when Göring was flying Eric von Rosen in bad weather from Stockholm to Rockelstad Castle, at the lake Båven in Sörmland, Sweden. Due to bad weather conditions, Göring had to stay at the castle. There he became acquainted with the sister of von Rosen’s wife, Carin von Kantzow. She was at that time married to a Swedish officer, but would be his big love and future wife.
The von Rosen swastika
Eric von Rosen had been using a swastika as a personal owner’s mark. He originally saw the symbol on runestones in Gotland, while at school. Knowing that the symbol signified good luck for the Vikings, he utilized the symbol and had it carved into all his luggage when going on an expedition to South America in 1901. Being a friend of Finland, on March 1918 he gave the newly independent state an aircraft, which signified the beginning of the Finnish Air Force. The aircraft, a license manufactured Morane-Saulnier MS Parasol/Thulin D, was marked with his badge, a blue swastika on a white background. The Finnish Air Force adopted this roundel as their national insignia.
Göring had noted the swastika during his stay in Sweden and at von Rosens’ castle (forged into a metal piece at the fireplace). However, the swastika of the German Nazi party had been adopted already in 1920, two years before Göring met Adolf Hitler.
TIL: In the ‘50s, Lee was engaged to Henriette von Rosen, daughter of Count Fritz von Rosen. After hiring private detectives to investigate the actor and demanding references, the Count refused to allow his daughter to marry him unless Lee got the blessing of the King of Sweden. Lee got it.
Birth: July 30, 1899 Stockholm, Stockholms län, Sverige
Death: 1969 Valleberga, Malmöhus län, Sverige
Managed by: Private User
Son of Clarence von Rosen and Baronesse Agnes Maria von Rosen
Husband of Grevinde Clara Lilian Maud von Rosen and Comtesse Vivika Fredrika Louise von Rosen
Father of Otto Clarence von Rosen; Carl Clarence Reinhold von Rosen; Henriette Ewa Agnes Billsten and Agneta Gräfin von Rosen
Brother of Ellen Clara Ella Marianne von Rosen; Maud von Rosen; Agnes Lillian von Rosen and Clarence Carl Reinhold von Rosen
During the trip of the king to the continent in 1780-1781, von Rosen was given a complete power of attorney by the monarch to make any decisions as she saw fit regarding the crown prince during his absence. When the king fell ill abroad and there were fears that he would die, which would mean a minor regency for the crown prince, von Rosen took the crown prince from Ulriksdal Palace to Stockholm on her own initiative. According to rumor, she had been advised to do so by the Governor of Stockholm, Sparre, to avoid the queen dowager, Louisa Ulrika of Prussia, from taking custody of the crown prince and thereby the regency in the event of the king’s death. There were real fears of a coup by the queen dowager at this point, and Adolf Fredrik Munck reportedly also prepared to escape abroad in the event of Louisa Ulrika taking over the regency of the crown prince in the event of the king’s death. The feared coup was avoided as the king soon recovered. Hedvig Elisabeth Charlotte commented in her journal, that it was an extraordinary measure of von Rosen to move her royal charge at that point, but that she had the legal right to do so by the power of attorney from the king and that it would not have been necessary for her to be advised to do so by Sparre.
Von Rosen’s happiness with Hanny ended with the outbreak of World War II. She joined the resistance, was arrested by the Gestapo and sent to Dachau in Germany. After the war she committed suicide in 1949.
When the Soviet Union invaded Finland in 1939 in the Winter War, von Rosen quit his job to fly bombing missions for the Finns. He purchased a KLM Douglas DC-2, had it converted to a bomber in Sweden, and made one operational mission in March 1940 against the Soviet Union with it. Later the same year, as the Germans attacked the Netherlands, von Rosen with a Dutch KLM-crew flew a DC-3 with Dutch government documents to England and applied for service with the RAF but was turned down, on account of his family relation to Hermann Göring. Carl Gustaf von Rosen went on flying for the Swedish airline AB Aerotransport (ABA) from August 1940 until the end of the war.
It was indeed Daisy who first wore the Dali inspired “Shoe Hat”, which Dali sketched for Elsa in 1937.
Bond and Fellowes
A Ian Fleming Revival
‘The Deal of the Art’
Monica de Mornay Del La Croix watched the rise of her son in the Admiralty with amusement. But, now that the war was over, anyone who was somebody, took a keen interest in the art collection of Hitler’s top brass. The looted art was hands off, but, there was the art that belonged to the aristocracy, that was considered war booty. Henriech Himmler allegedly took it upon himself to rescue the art treasures from the stately homes in Berlin before the advance of the Russians. This art was never found. Then there were Berlin’s museums. Curators moved their art treasures the day after the first allied bombing. All of this was considered war booty, and up for grabs.
James had turned down his mother’s job offer for a position at Loyd’s of London, and Sothebys.
“Get close to the de Rougemonts. They are locking up the world!” Monica said as upon a stage, then came to hover over her son who was in his desk drawer looking for surviving bottle scotch whiskey.
She then tried to hook her son up with Hoaward Young, the art dealer, who was purchasing European Art for wealthy American millionairs.
“I don’t know a thing about art!” James announced proudly, hoping this would put an end his mother’s latest ambition for him.
“Its not a matter of what you know, but who you know! Daisy Fellowes has the hots for you and is between husbands. She is related to Winston Churchill. If you allow her to bed you, she will move you up through the ranks! Everyone in the Royal Navy is after her.”
“Mother! Are you pimping me out?”
“Yes! You are giving it away – for free! How many artists friends do you know, who act like whores around their patrons? Daisy can help you round them up and put them in the Bond & Fellowes stable.”
“Hmm! Bond & Fellowes Art Gallery of London. It has a substantial ring to it. Why not throw in the latest fashions?”
“I don’t trust you will get anything done with all those young models around.”
Monica de Mornay watched her son take in the whole hook, with his mother’s disapproval of him being a womanizer – and a cad! She employed the Rebel Child gambit on him, that she knew would not last forever. Her son was surrounded by those Eaton chaps that were taught how to be clever, and nothing more. They were not ready for the Blitzkrieg. They thought it was going to be another long drawn out chess game. They did not expect their opponent to lunge across the board and plant a dagger in their gut.
The next call would be to her calling card company. She knew her clever son was into giving his name with aplomb;
“Bond. James Bond. Here’ my card!”
Bond & Fellowes
Daisy was now considered the Muse of the Century. Where there is a muse, look for an artist close by. John Singer Sargent did a portrait of Daisy, which got the attention of his rival, Augustus John, who lured the famous actress, Tallulah Bankhead, to his home in that would soon become the home of Francis Taylor. His mother, Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor was there, as was Elizabeth’s sister, Mable Rosemond Young, who was married to Art Dealer, Howard Young, who was a good friend of General Eisenhower. They played a lot poker, with other brass included high ranking allied brass. Monica played her calling card on the Rosemond sister from America.
“Do you know Baron John Rose of Canada? I am kin to all the Rose Barons.”
Monica instantly regretted her name dropping. The look these American women gave her was a put down she had never experienced. She apologized before she heard;
“We grew up with a work horse named Rose.”
“And, a chicken!”
The rumor has it The Boys played for Art, art that was turned over to the allied commanders by their troops. After ascertaining it was German art, Howard arranged for buyers. This was all under the table. This art seeded American companies that took advantage of the technology that the war produced. Several Airlines took off with art belonging to families with Von in their name. This is…….The Untold Renaissance!
Everyone got it, if those Sad Sacks from the Ozarks found out they were being aced out, there would be another American Revolution. The poor hate a rigged game. Booty will be Booty. That’s how it goes, the wages of war.
When Daisy accompanied Tallulah to her first sitting with John, she was introduced to Taylor’s two children. She was struck my the color of their eyes. All the Rosemond women had these purple-blue eyes. They wanted to meet the movie star, who looked perturbed, as did Augustus. She didn’t get what he wanted – from her! Here was Hollywood Royalty, and she looked like she was heading to the barn to milk the cows. She didn’t have – IT!
“And, what are you going to be when you grow up?” Daisy asked Elizabeth.
“I’m going to be a horse trainer. Do you want see my pony uncle Howard gave me?”
Evelyn Beatrice Fleming (St. Croix Rose)
|Also Known As:||“Evelyn St. Croix Fleming”|
|Death:||July 27, 1964 (79)|
|Immediate Family:||Daughter of George Alfred St. Croix Rose and Beatrice St. Croix Rose
Wife of Valentine Fleming
Mother of Amaryllis Marie-Louise Fleming; Peter Fleming; Ian Fleming and Michael Valentine Paul Fleming
Sister of Major Harcourt George Sainte Croix Rose; Kathleen Mary Sainte Croix Rose and Ivor Sainte Croix Rose
Three hours ago, I discovered James Bond’s mother is named ‘Monique Delacroix Bond’. Ian Flemings mother is Evelyn Beatrice Saint Croix Rose. Delacroix means “of the cross”. Add the Rose and you ‘The Rose of the Cross’. How about The Order of the Rose Croix? The Rose line of Fleming via his mother. I have chosen this image to be Bond’s mother who was born in Switzerland.
“Sir John Rose, 1st Baronet
There have been four baronetcies created for persons with the surname Rose, all in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom. Three of the creations are extant as of 2010.
My grandfather, Royal Rosamond, taught Earl Stanley Gardener how to write, and camped on the Channel Islands with Dashiel Hammet, and other Black Mask mystery writers – before Ian Fleming, and Dan Brown became writers. I have shown you the real ROSE LINE OF THE CROSS. I can deliver this anyway I want. No one has made the Monica connection to Bond’s mother, but Ian, who goes undercovear at the College of Arms – as a genealogist! This is pre-Dan Brown. Fleming and Brown top the top money-makers.
As a Historic Romantic
As Pseudo Religious Myth
I find it very interesting that Rear Admiral Ronny Jackson is acting Bondish, and like the real Fleming. Ronny wrecked a car at a Secret Service bask. I am in the cat bird’s seat! James was born in the Canton of Vaud where Chateau Rougemont is located. James was born in Austria.
I am kin to Elizabeth Rosamond Taylor and Carrie Fisher. The Rosamond name has been traced to Rougemont in the Alsace. The de Bar family are kin. Liz is kin to Ian Fleming through the Getty family.
Notice the spelling of Rougemont – Rosemont. Johanna ‘Dame de Rosemont’ married Duke Albrecht von Hapsburg. From them most of the Hapsburgs descend.
Johanna Gfn von Pfirt, 1347 Dame de Rosemont, de Sermagny, de Chaux, de la Chapelle, du Puits, de Giromagy, de Viscemont, de Rougegoutte, etc (1300-Vienna 15 Jan 1352; bur Gaming); m.13 Feb 1324 Duke Albrecht II of Austria (d.1358)
It is 1:47 A.M. PST. I am going to retire. Tomorrow, I will awake as the Latest Fleming Revivalist and contact GLIDROSE, a name that combines John Gliddon, with Norman Rose……………..a Rose Line! I have raised Monica Delacroix – from the dead! My mother was born Rosemary Rita Rosamond, to Mary Magdalene, and Royal Rosamond.
I will no longer be using Lara Roozemond as my Muse for my Bond revival.
On this day, April 26, I found ‘Royal Rosamond Fashion’ a fashion magazine. I want to attract Top Models from around the world. Why not……The Victoria Bond Look?
Ian Fleming Publications is the production company formerly known as both Glidrose Productions Limited and Glidrose Publications Limited, named after its founders John Gliddon and Norman Rose. In 1952, author Ian Fleming bought it after completing his first James Bond novel, Casino Royale; he assigned most of his rights in Casino Royale, and the works which followed it to Glidrose.
Monique Bond is the mother of James Bond and the spouse of Andrew Bond. Like her husband, the character has only a brief mention in Fleming’s penultimate novel, You Only Live Twice. Although alluded to in 1995’s GoldenEye and 2012’s Skyfall, she has never been portrayed in film.
Ian Lancaster Fleming
|Birthplace:||Mayfair, London, Greater London, England, United Kingdom|
|Death:||August 12, 1964 (56)
Canterbury, Kent, England, United Kingdom (Heart attack)
|Place of Burial:||St Andrew’s Churchyard, Sevenhampton, Wiltshire, England, United Kingdom|
|Immediate Family:||Son of Valentine Fleming and Evelyn Beatrice Saint Croix Rose
Husband of Anne Geraldine Mary Fleming
Father of Caspar Robert Fleming
Brother of Peter Fleming and Michael Valentine Paul Fleming
Half brother of Amaryllis Marie-Louise Fleming and Major Richard Evelyn Fleming
It was not until the penultimate novel, You Only Live Twice, that Ian Fleming gave Bond a sense of family background, using a fictional obituary, purportedly from The Times. The book was the first to be written after the release of Dr. No in cinemas and Sean Connery’s depiction of Bond affected Fleming’s interpretation of the character, to give Bond both a sense of humour and Scottish antecedents that were not present in the previous stories. The novel reveals Bond is the son of a Scottish father, Andrew Bond, of Glencoe, and a Swiss mother, Monique Delacroix, of the Canton de Vaud. When his parents are killed in a tragic mountain climbing accident in the Aiguilles Rouges near Chamonix, eleven-year-old James is orphaned.
